You Can't Call a Pretty Girl Pretty; What Kind of Country Are We Becoming?

Before examining the ridiculous controversy stemming from Monday night’s college football championship broadcast, let us stipulate that there are more urgent and scary ways to describe the current changes in America.

We are becoming a culture of dependency. We are becoming a neo-socialist experiment. We are becoming a dumbed-down nation unappreciative of its founders. We are losing touch with the Constitution and the very concept of liberty.

I do not argue that today’s essay is our most pressing problem. But as scores of fine writers address the various angles of our republic’s dangle from a precarious thread, I thought I’d venture to the periphery to lament another type of change which accrues to our societal detriment.

Since we have the fattest and laziest population on the planet, and rapidly (by every test and measurement) the STUPIDEST one, too, calling a woman "beautiful" hurts the feelings of all the other women who can't stop eating chips, donuts, and soda. Everyone is the same, everyone is equal. Thats the story being pushed down our throats and if you step out of that liberal fanatsy, then you are castigated as a racist, a bigot, "insensitive", a redneck, or some such name. Bottom line? She is hot. A babe. Go to the gym and you, too, can slim that fat ace down. Someone MIGHT, one day, call YOU beautiful, too. Its a COMPLIMENT.

Don't always agree with you, Imclain. But you nailed it with that comment. Well said.
