Another WTF

WTF, people bend over backwards to keep from offending people and this is IMO going a bit too far!
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...emans-hat.html A postcard featuring a cute puppy sitting in a policeman's hat advertising a Scottish police force's new telephone number has sparked outrage from Muslims.


Tayside Police's new non-emergency phone number has prompted complaints from members of the Islamic community.

Re: Another WTF

I say so what offend them all.
Everything that is said, implied, conveyed, hinted towards, thought, OK I think I made my point seems to offend someone somewhere. WTF is right!

Re: Another WTF

But it is from the Daily Mail - the mouthpiece of the the outraged, middle class. conservative Englander. Could it really be asking what silly people these Muslims are complaining about a harmless wee puppy - can't have that oh no?

Well harmless until it grows up to be a great big German SHeperd and then no one will complain what it sits on ;-)

Re: Another WTF

Next thing the bloody idiots will asked for all dogs to be killed because they find the sight of them offensive. I know who I'm finding the sight of offensive, and it isn't the little dog.

Bout time to leave this country for one that doesn't bow down to every minorities demands. Makes me effin sick!

A fellow from England worked in an adjorning office some time back - went back to England a couple of years ago - came back and became a US citizen. He said England as 'he or we' knew it is no more. It is gone. Political correctness has destroyed it. Sad.

It will take a revolution 'of sorts' to stop the madness. If that does not work - a real one will.

Looks like there are two choices - prepare for the worst (which some are already doing) and/or make your voice heard about how mad you are at the current situation. Small but very vocal groups have far more impact than they deserve and we need to take our system back.

Our system is fine. It has just gotten misdirected. Neither Clinton or either Bush are to blame. The Senate and Congress are the problem. Fix (as in run them, the lobbyist and many of the entrenched department heads/professional bureaucrats off) and start over (with term limits) and the rest will fix itself. Public executions of corrupt politicians and bureaucrats would not hurt at all either.

Guess this will fan the flames, but thanks to the blocking power of this site - IRDGAS.

In the short term I've written to my MP and told him how disgusted I am that we have to bow down to minorities and it's about time to put a stop to this bullshit they call Political Correctness.

He's already had a bunch of letters from me with regard to the way our troops and their families are treated, and have had a couple of letters back from the House of Commons and the Defence Secretary. The incident which got my back up, was a typist was awarded 250,000 damages for RSI of the wrist, which would stop her working for the rest of her life, while a serviceman who lost both legs and an arm in the middleast, got 3/5's of 5/8's of fuck all for his wounds, in other words, next to nothing! made my blood boil.
