Political correctness run amok

It is amusing to me how the politically correct crowd has changed the wording to certain things to make it sound better than it really is.

Such as, when I was going up, if a couple was living together out of wedlock, it was called "shacking up.” Now it is my “live-in boyfriend” or “we are having a relationship.” American Indians are now Native Americans, illegal immigrants are now undocumented workers, government housing projects are now government apartment complexes, and it goes on and on.

If someone stands up and actually tells the truth about what is causing some of the problems we face in this country, they are condemned for it because it offends some people.

I guess one day instead of calling a person that kills someone a murderer they will be called a life-challenging person.

What a joke. As the saying goes, the more things change the more they stay the same.
