as it sometimes does in America, with a sugary taste for euphemism."

Intolerance is always with us, though throughout the ages it is sometimes more and sometimes less. Euphemism is the tool use by those who direct their agenda towards those they wish to subjugate, i.e; "Terrorists" means you are in my way and need to be destroyed.... Intolerance is caused primarily by ignorance, religion, and nationalism. Today, intellectualism is frowned upon as it usually is when fundamentalism raise's it's ugly head.....

    Robert above said well. The current intolerance is of anything contrary to the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's politically correct atheistic socialism (an ever expanding ethics system, moral imperative, do good, anti-law religion). Amerika's sugary taste for euphemism conceals the heinous application of despotism, tyranny and slavery.

    I haven't been posting for the past several weeks due to a stroke I had. Spent sometime in the hospital and am rehabbing at this time.

    jim, it is really good to see you back. I hope you will be completely well very soon. It probably doesn't mean much to you but, I will keep you in my prayers. Again, good to have you back.

    Take care, jim!
