I've recently talked about a Pampered Chef party I went to and abbreviated it to PC. That's not the PC I'm talking about today. Politically Correct. I don't appreciate it. Here are some things I've been thinking about.
I hate the whole going "green" movement. Especially after reading The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (see my Reading List), my eyes were open to the scams. Why should I buy a more expensive bottle of cleaning solution because it's "green"? Why would it affect the environment to use a "green" dusting solution? Or a "green" shampoo? The only thing I could imagine would be if I was washing my car and the run off affected my lawn. The worse thing for the environment are the plastic bottles all these "green" chemicals are sold in. I call it a scam because I have to pay more for something that doesn't really make a difference in cleaning or the environment. I mean saying that you're not for the "greens" is construed into saying things like you don't support Oprah's school in Africa.
I also don't understand why the "PC" name for black people is African-American. I mean when I fill out a census there's not a "Welch-American" spot. I have to circle I'm white. Why then is it offensive for a non-white person who isn't actually Asian or Mexican to be called black?
Did you know? It's also now not "PC" to call sitting down on the floor with your legs crossed Indian style because it's offensive? I think if Indians can get over white I mean Euro-Americans killing their people and stealing their land they can deal with the fact that a sitting style is named after them. The substitute? Criss Cross Applesauce. I always knew applesauce was good for something!
