Romney Was Not the Problem

No, it's not time for Ann to become silent. She has as much right to express her opinion as you do. You also have the right to not like or agree with her opinions, but you do not have the right to tell her to shut up.

Well, I'd like to say that America is better for it and Italy has lost an admirable family. I'm not much for "political correctness" either. On that we can both agree. I can say this. I like finding common ground that we can both agree on much better than getting cross-ways with you. I like your post and will continue to be a follower of your opinions.

That's true JimmyLynn, there is a difference. Sadly more people fall victim to political correctness than to politeness or manners. They are afraid to call a spade a spade. Instead of saying a person is "crippled" they go along with "physically challenged." Instead of blind it's "vision challenged." They are told that they can not say a person is "colored" or "Black" it's "African-American."
As for myself and my family, we are called "Italian-Americans" We consider that to be an insult, even to my grandparents and parents who were born in Italy. They came here to be AMERICANS, not hyphens. We are not ashamed of our Italian heritage in any way, but we are AMERICANS first, not Italians.

On a finer note......there is a difference in "Political Correctness" and just plain, old fashion politeness.

Ok Lady,

So you're a blunt spoken person, so I will be too. In the future if you want to retain the respect I have had for your posts, don't post lies about me and try to put words in my mouth. When I intend to tell someone to "shut up", I know how to spell it and don't need any help from you.

My words were not harsh. If you know me at all you know that I speak my mind and don't hold back for fear of hurting someones feelings when I think they are wrong.

One of the biggest problems with too many Americans since the introduction of "Political Correctness" is that they are so afraid of hurting someone's feeling, or at least being accused of it that they won't say what's on their minds anymore. Well it's time that stopped because all "Political Correctness" is is another form of censorship.

Your harsh words wound me Lady. I did not use that term "Shut up". You are correct. Ann has a right to say whatever she wants just as I do, and my suggestion was that this may be the time for her to remain silent. She is embarassing herself from my viewpoint.

Small minds always leap to the answers given the last time around, which is probably why Maxine Waters keeps getting re-elected. But the last time is not necessarily the same as this time. A terrorist attack is not the same as the Cold War, a war in Afghanistan is not the same as a war in Iraq, and Mitt Romney is not the same as John McCain or Bob Dole.

But since the election, many conservatives seem to be coalescing around the explanation for our defeat given by Jenny Beth Martin of the Tea Party Patriots, who said: "What we...
