Gimme A Break

Wow, what is the world coming to? You know, I’ve never watched Paula Deen, never bought one of her cookbooks, never eaten at her restaurant- all because she’s never interested me in the least. I guess you could say I’m just not a fan. However, this flap over “hurtful language” used in the *past* still floors me & stirs up a lot of annoyance in me. Every last person on Earth, no matter how famous or “insignificant”, has said hurtful things to someone, somewhere. Every last person on Earth has made less than kind comments, even if in private, about someone out there- be it about their race, religion, IQ, social standing, wearing glasses, their nose, their big ol’ butt, their make-up habits- SOMETHING.

If what was SAID in the past is enough to persecute folks over & cause them to lose their jobs, EVERYBODY would be without a job.

It’s odd that the only folks who can openly be maligned anymore are white, ‘straight’, average or better IQ’d, working Christians.

I’m not saying it’s right to make fun of folks and it’s sure not right to be mean to someone, but really, isn’t it time people re-grew a bit of that thicker skin?  Maybe time for people to grow up?  

And along the same lines- my hat is just off to THIS IDIOT for sinking to new lows in the ranks of stupidity-in-the-name-of-equality

Who stole your purse ma’am?

Well officer, it was a ma-

No ma’am, you may not tell me gender.

Well, this clear person was a teenag-

    So…what Paula Deen said nearly 30 years ago is grounds for firing (that’s what it means when they don’t renew a contract, after all. But The Current Occupant wrote a book full of subversive, ignorant, racist drivel, and HE got re=elected. What bilge…

    I do believe I am getting religion. We are all surely going to hell.

    Incredible application of the double standard.

    I like Paula Dean. We may not agree on some things but she is a truly nice lady.

    Hey now, you can’t go around calling people with darker skin color racist…it’s like dividing by zero (or something.)
