    It all started years ago when people started being "PC". It has led to our society being a bunch of wimps and pushovers, afraid to stand up for anything for fear of being labeled as racist, intolerant or "anti whatever". Kids that played games with no winner, people that FORGOT 9/11 and who committed that terrible act. My grandparents would be sick if they saw the state of affairs we are in.

    Didn't the bible say something about this? Something along the lines of the wicked will make wrong seem as right while the good are made bad?... You don't have to be religious to see that the bible has some good wisdom in it.
