We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Just as I can't figure out what Facebook has done wrong lately (if you don't count censoring conservative views, which I'm assured is a "spurious" claim and NOT AT ALL what we're upset about), and what Obama meant by "mommy issues," I'm blanking completely on what was offensive about "Ladies' Lingerie." Was it the mention of intimate undergarments? The use of "lady" instead of "woman"? If you were to formulate an apology for using this old punchline, what form would it take? I guess it's safest to say "I'm so sorry, I'm obviously a horrible person, or you're a nutcase, but mostly you're a nutcase."
Lately the thing mostly is to grovel on demand. No explanations, however cogent, are even remotely to the point. They just show you don't have the true religion and are a good candidate for the next one to go over the side of the lifeboat. "Your apology seems perfunctory, comrade."
I am a recent "member" of the retirement community. I retired from a well known Govt. agency. The work wasn't so bad but the bureaucracy and constant change and training for latest politically correct BS was stifling. When I was informed that I had some "NEW" LGBTQ training that needed to be completed I decided enough was enough. I have family members, friends and co-workers that are part of that "community" and didn't need any nonsense training to know how to treat them with respect and common human dignity. But because this is a more recent "cause" for the PC crowd to beat us all over the head with, I decided I've had enough. This wasn't the final straw so to speak as I had already been planning to retire soon. But I had reached one of those goals that made retiring that much easier. As a retiree I can freely say "ladies lingerie" in a crowded elevator with immunity. What are they gonna do? Take away my AARP card! As Oprah has said "we all just need to die". Sorry Oprah, I retired early,......You all have got me for another 20-30 years freely saying "ladies lingerie" from the back of the elevator.
