    Default Political correctness

    I think we need to put an end t , we can't make change if we keep worrying whose feelings we are going to hurt. We need to take a stand on that before we can move forward on other issues.

    If we stop spending so much time trying to change the basics we were founded on we would be a little closer to uniting and getting back on track.

    I don't think you can completely put an end to it but there are definitely times when it needs to be ignored.

    I am on a crusade to fight ignorance, on my way out to fight the "only" parent picking up their kid fight

    I dislike ignorant people with no consideration for others. My own ignorance I try to learn from.

    Why do you keep referring to yourself as ignorant? Consideration, IMO, is a very important part of life. Karma can be a bitch

    Actually I didn't know what you meant. Most of us who own homes have counted on our home appreciating, as they have in CA at least in the 23 years I have owned. The housing market adjusted in 90 or 91 and it took until at least the mid to late 90's before values returned to where they were. I know many people who bought in my neighborhood, back then for $240K only to have the value drop into the high 100's for years. Along with the issue of appreciation is the benefit of the interest deduction. This in itself makes owning vary attractive, IMO. I don't know exactly what you are facing but the market will turn around. It always does here in CA, which is where I thought you said you were.

    There is sometimes a fine line between political correctness and common courtesy. I for one do not use racial slurs and most of the time I try to refer to our leaders with respect to their titles...Ie I say Sen Clinton or Pres Bush...This is not to be PC, but rather it is what we old folks used to call "mannors" and our British friends call "proper form"...The worst thing about political correctness is that is supresses honest open debate. However, it is possible to be honest, open, and un-PC and still be polite and respectful. If one has mannors....One thing I noticed, is that people started relying on political correctness right after many people seemed to lose their mannors. I guess we need some standards in order to keep us from each others throats. I just think that political correctness has proven to be a sorry replacement for mannors or what we also used to call class...
    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    I was born and raised on the east coast. Not that this has anything to do with my ignorance in my home purchase.

    I agree and trash comes in all colors, as does class.
