What did you say? Whatever you said, it better be politically correct!
Even Governor Beshear is in trouble for trying to conform too new wave thinking. Recently the Governor was criticized for calling the state capital’s Christmas tree a Holiday tree.
Was he trying to be politically correct or was he just being short sighted.
Republican Senate President David Williams of Burkesville said "Steve Beshear in his continued swing to the left shows that political correctness is more important than Kentucky values," The Governor ‘spokesperson Jill Midkiff said the terminology is intended to be inclusive. "Obviously, to Governor Beshear and the first lady, who are both Christians, it is certainly a Christmas tree," Midkiff said. "What is important is to remember what this time of year is all about — family and caring for those less fortunate."
I believe the Federal Holiday is “Christmas Day” and nobody seems to mind taking the day off. In my opinion, everyone who is offended by saying Christmas should go ahead and work!
Do you think there will be many takers? We are now being asked to say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas!
It seems to be acceptable to risk upsetting Christians, but God forbid we offend some atheist or non-believer.
The funny thing is a Christian, by nature of their beliefs, is forgiving and will generally let things be.
Janitors are now custodial engineers, garbage haulers are sanitation engineers even though they hold no engineering degree.
An American Indian is called a Native American. A person who is deaf is now hearing impaired. A blind person is now visually impaired. A handicapped person is now physically impaired. A fat person is now called weight challenged.
Good grief, no wonder people are confused.
I’m sorry to have to say this, but this is all a part of the progressive movement reforming or reshaping America. The progressives realize that it is impossible to control free thinking people.
Our children are being taught in our schools today that the government’s role is to care for us.
As I have said before, healthcare reform is NOT about providing medical care, it is about control. Everything we do as Americans can be control through the Healthcare Reform Bill if it becomes law!
The recent vote in the House of 220 to 215 on the Healthcare Bill is proof that this bill is not being supported by the people.
Our Senate is going to be our way out of this mess, so it is important that we contact our Senators McConnell and Bunning and express our opinion. Many of you also have friends and relatives in other states, so please get them involved.

May God bless…
