I’ve lived in the USA all of my life and I know there are times that I underestimate what freedoms that we have.
One such freedom I enjoy is speech. Well, I guess writing in this case, Opinions are something that everyone has, although not everyone lets them out. Putting thoughts down on paper, screen, or just onto your tongue helps you to organize yourself a little. Every day, without our noticing, some of our freedoms are being eroded. I’m not saying that it is obvious; but, it happens. I’ve learned that the ‘frog in the pot’ theory isn’t based on fact, but as an analogy it works.
I do not favor ‘political correctness’ in my life. Understand that I have no wish to antagonize any person. There are just times when it would be nice to be able call a rose a rose, and a pile of dog droppings a pile of dog droppings. Calling it fertilizer will not change what it is; something that smells and is not wanted.
I’m all in favor for being polite, when possible. Courtesy helps to keep society moving more or less in a cooperative effort. However, when something is not right, plain speech can be of more benefit than beating around the bush.
All I have to really say is…KEEP speaking people!
