    I think this world is too Politically Correct now. We are so afraid to say the wrong thing. Some people are just looking for an excuse to cry foul. For example, I'm half Italian so I can say this. A few years back, some in the Italian community started to moan about the way TV potraits Italians. Like all Italians are in the Mafia. People were getting so upset. I thought it was funny. Who the F_ck cares! Get over it and move on. Remember the Frito Bandito? I thought it was cute. But it had to be removed because it offended some.
    I'm not the best at writing my thoughts but you get the point, right?
    Anyway, to the Missileman thread...

    PC like any form of censorship is harmful to society. Everyone's got an opinion, and most times the people with the most far out, share it the most. You just take it from who it comes.

    It is time we take PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

    :eek: My 3 year old says 'yuk' to just about anything that isn't peanut butter or hot dogs or steak or french fries. I guess he's prejudiced against just about everybody.

    Of course, you should immediately report the lad to the proper authorities and get him in for some serious counciling
