This will make me sound crazy, but who cares...

I am not scared at all because my time has been set, I can't change that, no matter how hard I've tried...

Most schools don't celebrate christmas anymore, and those that do don't allow children to put pictures of Santa, Christmas trees and the like on posters or cards. In fact, lots of holidays from our own culture are undergoing that treatment...

There are so many elements of our lives that are being stepped like that...it's not the fault of the assylum seekers (although a small number of them are extremely vocal about how much better their society is than ours), but rather the government's ridiculous policies and "political correctness gone insane" attitude that worries me tongue.gif


That really sucks, Seraphina!  disgust.gif
People like that really piss me off.  If it was so great where they came from, then they should go back and stop taking up room here/there.  

I say go all out with the Scottish stuff, celebrate all the small Scottish holidays, make holidays up! If they don't like, they don't celebrate! And decorate the hell out of your front lawn, window, anything that faces the st.  And light your backyard and balcony like a freaking disco ball .  Do not in way change culture stuff, If someone complains they donít understand your accent, remind that itís not your problem.

And of course, write to your congress-person, annoy the hell out of them.  Remind them thatís your country too.  You have been here longer, and if all else fail, tell them next elecation they should pack up their files, because they are no longer needed.  And you have found someone more able and deserving of the position!

I hate HATE people like that,  the people are who so PC that they cann't even take a s**t.

I'm guessing its gonna guess worse, and you'd better be prepared.  Although technologically we'll be advancing at the same time.  But after the whole universally extreme chaos and destruction, it'll quickly return back to normal and probably better.  Normal, without all the emotional stuff.  The emotional pain will still linger as well as the physical pain, if ever encountered.  But stay optomistic, even when times seem to crumble around you.

Not only do I not feel safe, I am deeply angered by what has been taken away from the country in which I live.

I do not fear death and accept my demise with a healthy respect.

I do not expect that life should be a bowl full of cherries, challenges abound and always will. However, the "security" I once felt no longer exists. Yes, "security" may be only a perception of reality, yet knowing I am part of a "target" by radical factons angers me NO END.

My 'world' has never been luxurious or easy, but at least I trusted my surroundings to the point of feeling relaxed entering the big world around me.

Now? That has been removed.



dying is easy ... tis the living that's hard...

Yes, governments's ridiculous policies and political correctness gone insane" attitude ........see in the States it is the Liberals who are behind all of this BS.
The Liberals are 'The Left' in the US.   I think you would probably be a Republican
Conservative if you lived in the states. blink.gif Really I do.

I think the chances of my being killed in Dallas traffic are great....much greater
than being killed by a thug or terrorist.  Generally, I have no fear.  

But do I feel safe?......No.................the mouse feels safe just before the snake bites.....  Before 9/11 I put up my guard in bad neighborhoods but now....
I keep my guard up all of the time.

I also understand you worries about loosing your culture, but remmber your culture is not something that could be taken away from you, unless you let them!

Truth is, while I agree nobody can take my culture away from me...I'm going to consider myself a Scot my entire life, I'm going to celebrate the holidays and values that I believe in until the day I die, and I'm going to raise my children to be Scots too...I'm just worried that I'm gonna be the minority in my own country wacko.gif

  huh.gif  and I thought PC over here was bad ... what the heck is this ??!? At least with the US's PC bullsh*t we can at least kinda get an idea where they got their twisted logic from but I cant seem to come up with an explanation for this . Es Random  blink.gif  wacko.gif  

In the way, the supernatural is what's behind the curtain. Normally, you only need to see what's happening in stage. That's how reality works. If you don't know then it's for the best. Actually, learning about the supernatural only increases the number of things you don't know.

I think the definition of PC should be changed to "random ethics without logic or purpose" laugh.gif

That's a good one, I'll have to remember to tell this to people who vote for PC's.

==
Stranger: "Vote for PC"
Coming out of the voting booth

Me: "Someone once suggested that PC's should change their party's name to Ethics Without Logic or Purpose, now did you use any logic when you voted for PC?"
To Stranger

Stranger: "Huh? They use logical ethics?"

Me: "Well that answers everything, I think you fit the requirements to become a member of this party or even as the leader itself."

Do I feel safe .... Hmm , that's really a lot bigger than it seems isn't it .
  I feel more prepared , if that's the right way to put it . If Sept 11 taught me anything it was that nothing is trully to be unexpected and there are more things in the world that should be planned for than  we were aware of before such a tragic event .
Mind you being a natural born fatalist I am of the belief that it is near impossible for the entire human race to be destroyed . And if it comes to the worst I intend on being one of the ones that survives  thumbsup.gif
