Definition of Political Correctness

My good friend Victor Banis sent me this and it's too great not to share.

Sometimes you are encouraged about our country's future when you see something like this.

Specifically, there is an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term: This year's term was “Political Correctness.”

The winner wrote: "Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

This guy has nailed it!

Sharp, concise and to the point. Couldn't be better.

And of course there's the good old bumper sticker; The religious right is neither! Alan, I may be out of range during the next 12 days. Will check in as I am able.

Small mindedness of all kinds is unattractive.

Thumbs up for such a great quote.

Really funny! Of course, the sad part is the truth behind the term, that being gracious and tolerant to people you may not quite understand is a good thing to do because it's politically advantageous. How about because it's morally right? How about because, as you reach out to different groups, you learn and grow?

Entertaining post, Alan. In my opinion, the phrase "political correctness" is one of the wackiest things we've ever had stuffed down our throats. Whatever happened to old fashioned words such as "courtesy," "respect," and "decency?" Do we really need to create contemporary terms (like euphemisms) for perfectly good and well-understood English?

High I just got air sharing for my iPhone and not too long ago and I know it is rated really high. I have put stupid things like notes and stuff on the app. I am also going to try to use it to keep school homework and notes at my finger tips but I wanted to know what else are some good uses for it?
