    ....who's more PC?
    I always thought we had it pretty bad in the UK, we've just had 13 yrs of a socialist government who were obsessed with being politically correct, if anything was seen as a problem we'd get hundreds of laws costing millions which was as much use as t*ts on a fish.

    We had people employed to shove diversity, carbon neutralism, healthy living down our throats, all on the taxpayer, even before the global financial drama we were wasting more money than we made employing people to tell us how to live.

    But I still think your average Brit is unchanged, he still has a dark, none PC, sense of humour, and likes to drink and fight more than he should.

    Australia on the other hand, is there anything that's not banned in Oz? From just about every violent game to e-cigs and large parts of the internet, it seems like every other news article I read it's about something being banned, anything that looks fun.

    The Yanks on the other hand are a mixed bunch, on the one hand you have the right to say anything no matter what, for example the recent Koran burning thing.
    Here was a guy who is obviously out to cause trouble and should be stopped, but he can't be because his constitutional right says he can do whatever he likes ,which I admire .

    In the UK we had a bunch of ignorant chavs burn Korans and they were charged for inciting racial hatred.

    You can also own an automatic rifle and pistol which is banned in the UK, even a bolt action rifle is hard to get a licence for, I'm a former soldier and I can't get one.

    But like I said you're a mixed bunch , you are very emotional, what's with hetrosexual men hugging each other all the time and wearing your heart on your sleeve, no man should cry unless he has an accident with his fly(zipper). And what's all this 10 small bottles of beer a night and you need rehab business, not to mention all this African-American crap, are you African or American? Make your mind up, have you ever been to Africa? What's wrong with being black?


    As for the whole Irish American thing, I find it rather amusing that people who's family emigrated a century ago are still talking in pigeon Irish, wearing Celtic tops and having shamrocks tattooed on their arse. My mum's Irish, does that make me Irish?

    Helmet on waiting for incoming , btw rant was made in jest , by all means have a go back ,but keep it friendly please.

    Sorry I can't sit idly by and be "friendly" with BS like this.

    I found this mildly amusing but I'm not entirely sure what the point is.

    In that case... I think the UK and the US have it worse when it comes to governments trying to force political correctness on everyone, but I feel people in the UK are more inclined to ignore it, what with our love for satire and alternative comedy constantly pushing limits to breaking point. Oh, and Jeremy Clarkson.

    Doing nothing of importance.

    Yeah, it's pretty annoying here in the US. It's against the law or anything to be politically incorrect, but if you're a bit out of line, someone's gonna bother you about it. You see it quite frequently here, I mean, just watch the news... It seems like almost every other story these days has something to do with someone saying something wrong and being sued for it.

    I'm not saying that it's ALWAYS like that, but sometimes people get a bit extreme about such things.

    So you're saying we can cry... But we can't cry in public or in private... That leaves... no options... I think we have a contradiction on our hands.

    Presicely, I am a very emotional driven dude.

    And I know when to lighten up, just certain statements like the beginning of the one I highlighted irk me. I feel the need to share my awesome opinionz on teh interwebz.

    On the subject at hand, PCness is getting f*cking retarded. No one can take a god damn joke anymore, and I am very crass and vulgar, almost morbid if you will. It's hard out here for me these days. LOL

    The point is I cried when I saw Lion King for the first time and I didn't care - Hakuna Matata my friend, Hakuna Matata.

    @Booch138 - I know what you mean, I can't even walk around with cut marks on my wrists anymore without people getting all up in my business, wtf! :mad:

    Seriously though, I had a conversation last month with an uncle of mine who is an extreme conservative right wing christian blah blah blah, long story short he made some comment about not all muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are muslim. And I was thinking fricking hell, I'm so tired of people coming up with some lame MO to spout around at dinner that doesn't even make sense. So in order to have insight into world events I take a sentence and create a mirror image of it?!

    Love everyone, but everyone doesn't love
    Just do it, but do it justly
    Any other idiotic crap you want to rearrange to save your conscience from trying too hard to think outside of your bubble

    Seriously, a bit of reserve and humour in adversity is lacking in somepeople, and it wouldn't do you any harm.

    I've seen people get limbs blown off and still smile.

    Or we could all just sit around and wait to die and telling people how miserable we all are.
