A couple of things...
I read this morning, believe it or not, the Republican held Senate passed a bi-partisan bill to fight Opiate Addiction. It passed unanimously. High fives all around and then they voted not to fund it. Only 5 Republicans voted to fund the bill, a bill they authored and passed.
Niggers, wops, spics, kikes, greasers, queers, chili shitters, jungle bunnies, bohunks, micks, round heads and wet backs. I heard all those names and more growing up in the "good old days". I heard those words out of the mouths of professionals and out of the mouths of the unskilled, so yeah I'm on board for PC.
Oh, and I remember when I first started working in the late 60's guys thought nothing about calling women they worked with, sweetie, doll and baby and on occasion gave them a little slap on the ass as they walked by the desk. I have no nostalgia for the "good old days".
I'll leave you with this note from the dearly departed Molly Ivins...
"One function of the income gap is that the people at the top of the heap have a hard time even seeing those at the bottom. They practically need a telescope. The pharaohs of ancient Egypt probably didn't waste a lot of time thinking about the people who built their pyramids, either."
