As time has gone by, this American tendency appears to be amplified. Someone who has been doing a great job for a very long time says one word that some find offensive and he loses his job or even his career. It’s all fun and games until it’s you who lets an ‘inappropriate’ word slip out.
The irony is that this is the Land of the Free. This is the country where freedom of speech is the number one amendment of the Constitution. It’s not the second, or third, it’s the first. And yes, we can still say whatever we want, but there are consequences that I feel are unreasonable. These consequences stifle the intent of the First Amendment. I wonder what the authors would say if we transported them through time to the present. Pretty sure it wouldn’t be complimentary.
