I'm sorry if it offends you but you are free to be offended and we can talk about it. Now, personally, there's much I won't say b/c it will offend someone but that's a personal judgment for myself not b/c of any PC word-police. There some I'm offended by (for example, using the F word on here) but I turn the screen or change the channel.

Note: There is apparently a dispute whether Voltaire said this.

If only party faithful read Voltaire. He says it in a nutshell. I disagree but I'll defend your right to say it. If the favor or duty is returned no one can take that right.
