It Won't Stop With Imus,....(Bloggers Feel It, Too!)
This post from XXX at First In!:
As many Bloggers are finding out (Rachel for example) the politically correct environment that modern liberals have created can be a dangerous place. If you don't tow the politically correct line, your free speech rights can get squashed and you can find yourself in a jam PDQ. Wyatt knows exactly what I mean. Being public servants puts us into a category that is different than most folks. And within this category there are sub categories. If you don't fit into the proper category and you voice your opinion, and someone in charge doesn't like it, you put yourself and your livelihood at risk.
So I have a dilemma. I can quit Blogging for my family's sake. I'll have less of a chance of pissing anyone off and therefore keep my job. OR I can censor all of my remarks to make them non-offensive and politically correct. (I'd rather quit). The other option is to go underground. Change my name and edit my previous posts to remove anything that could potentially get me into trouble. As it is now it wouldn't be too hard to figure out who I am at work.
I could also turn the blog over to someone else. (Nah). So I think in the end I'm going to keep at it for a while longer. I'll see how it goes. One thing though: I'll be changing my screen name to CaptainAmerica from now on. Since I couldn't think of another good name (Tired) and he's been my favorite Super Hero and a running theme in my blog I figured it will work. Thanks to my twelve readers for your patience and support.
