Political Correctness Is Often Incorrect



Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
--Arnold Schwarzenegger

A recent tweet states: "Denver Police warning parents to be on the lookout for pot-laced candy this Halloween."


Paul Rodney McHugh is an American psychiatrist, researcher, and educator. He is University Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the author, co-author, or editor of seven books within his field.

Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a "mental disorder" that merits treatment, that sex change is "biologically impossible," and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder.

That seems logical and sensible to me. It just makes more sense than does the current 'politically correct' belief that all one has to do is state that he or she is transgendered (even sub-teen children) and then is allowed to use a rest room intended for the opposite sex.

California governor signs bill allowing ‘transgender’ students to use opposite sex bathrooms and locker rooms.

On this day in 1989, the deadliest earthquake to hit the San Francisco area since 1906 struck at 5:04 p.m. and lasted for 15 seconds. The quake measured 7.1 on the Richter scale, and its aftermath was witnessed on live television by millions of people watching the third game of the World Series of baseball between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics, held at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. The tremor hit moments before the start of the game, and sportscasters were soon performing the duties of news anchors as they reported on the resulting pandemonium in the stadium. The earthquake killed a total of 63 people, while more than 3,000 others were injured and more than 100,000 buildings were damaged.
