    We can safely ignore the pleadings of Midwestern common sense that seems to itself be completely ignorant of what PResident Obama, you know, actually DID in his first term, instead of the random eleventy dimesional hypotheses that bore no reasonable relationship to reality.  

    And if you want to toss donuts for the use of "fucking retareded" you might want to toss it at your fellow midwesterner Rahm Emmanuel who coined the term to describe what now appears to be a potentially winning strategy.

    But I'm getting kind of used to the idea that the rabid Obama partisans engage in regular HR abuse, so I shouldn't be too surprised to see it erupt here as well.

    Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.

      whoever says it, whoever it is directed at.
      People get confused about PC. To me, having no ego attachment to being right about langauge usage that I think trumps someone's feelings, if someone in a group that is not the majority doesn't like a term, I'm fine with not using it.
      Mentally disabled people are put down enough..their condtion makes life harder as it is. If they and their loved ones don't like the use of "retarded" directed at THEM or used in general, I try not to use it.

      I grew up  using that word so occasionally I slip up. But I correct self.
