Response to Yeah, it was me that emailed you..........

So let me get this right. People are getting offended because of the acronym CHICOM? Who really cares if referring to a company or not. If that is offensive should I be offended when referred to as a Yank or even Haole? My wife is Canadian and called a Canuck all the time, Should she be offended? She's not and quite frankly I'm offended at how much she enjoys it, lol. Now I could see if Phil was referring to them as Commi pinkco f-gs or something crazy like that but come on CHICOM.

I need to learn more about this PC stuff so I know when to be offended.

How 'bout this for an option. If you click on a link and start reading something you find offensive, hit the little 'x' button and move on before you get your dander up. Problem solved. Sure seems like a better option than trying to persuade everyone else to think like you.

I just remembered I called my children 'kids' today....I wonder if they're scarred for life?
