In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

    Is it really "impolite" that some peoples and countries have different names in different languages?

    Whatever floats your boat, man...lol... I don't worked up about political correctness...I'm just not that into being an asshole, when a simple choice of words would help me avoid it...doesn't cost me anything. :) The practice you're clutching came from a time when people were poor and...

    Is it really "impolite" that some peoples and countries have different names in different languages?

    See, I find the whole thing weird, and it's got nothing to do with "political correctness" (a bawling that makes this thread far less interesting, by the way...is this what this is all about? Boo). Anyway...it's not something I thought of before this thread, and likely not something I'll think...

    Is it really "impolite" that some peoples and countries have different names in different languages?

    Yeah, it is...lol... It is exactly the same, which is why it's weird....at least, in English. I can't think of any other example where we'd change a proper noun in this fashion. We don't do it with cities either...and that's a lot closer of an example.

    Is it really "impolite" that some peoples and countries have different names in different languages?

    Yeah, honestly, it's an interesting question. From an English perspective, it doesn't make any sense. The name of a country is a proper noun...this would be like calling some Ted when their name is Frank. I've never really thought about it before, but in doing so now I find it to be a...

    Supreme Court rules for Pennsylvania cheerleader in school free speech case

    I'm thinking this needs an edit, as I'm not 100% sure what you're trying to say based on the words you've chosen, but I'm not saying that it shouldn't be allowed...just that it's tacky AF, so stand down, soldier, no one's attacking 1A. ;)

    Supreme Court rules for Pennsylvania cheerleader in school free speech case

    Fair enough, I was talking in the context of those folks who blather on and on all over their timeline about politics. If you're talking private groups, that's a bit better, but you're still using your real name, and depending on how careless your rhetoric is, you could still end up getting bit...

    Good grief, but you never fail to take every opportunity to sow misinformation and irrational fear, do you. Given that you never present an ounce of evidence, all your posts should default to the CT forum. What a ****ing joke.

    Yeah, I mean, that's all pretty reasonable. And, in regards to being left out in the cold, probably pretty wise too...hehe... My son's 8, and I'm not in a rush to get him vaccinated...for one thing, it's not available here for that age, but ... yeah... more testing is needed. It means being...
