Has Political Correctness gone too far?
“Yes!”, exclaims Mayor Eldon Sidney, “and the people of this town have decided to do something about it.”
The residents of Nemo, CA decided at their monthly town meeting on Friday, to put together a local law (Measure” N”) that would be added to the County Election ballot and voted on during the Primary Election, Tuesday, June 5th, 2012.
If passed, Measure “N” will exempt the town of Nemo from using P.C. terminology. They will be free to talk like they used to.
“You know, like back when this country had free-speech”, said Councilman Hart. “We have more rules, laws, and taxes forced on us now by our own Government than the English oppressed us with back in the 1770’s.”
Nemo’s oldest resident at 89-years, Hattie May Johnson, laughed when asked how she felt about Measure N. “I’ve been talking since the age of two and nobody’s going to be able to change how I do it now. I don’t cuss or take the Lord’s name in vain, which is more than those politicians can say!” Hattie went on to explain, “If we say someone is ‘height challenged’, everyone has to think about that a minute to translate the meaning. Horse feathers! Short means short! I’m short. Are you ashamed of being short? If you say I’m ‘height challenged’ I am still short. It don’t change that fact one bit!”
She’s got a point there. Maybe there should be a law about political correctness – requiring politicians to behave correctly...
