lol no those people who make ridiculous conclusions like the ones you listed will still continue to do so.

Luckily, they're a very small minority, unfortunately they're a very vocal minority.

I'd hardly say it's "suffocating", just annoying. Unless you go out of your way to read news stories that cite examples of excessive and ridiculous PC.

If that's the case, stop reading those news stories, because at the end of the day, it has likely had zero negative impact on your life, except maybe on the internet.

Most of the PC BS you see has nothing to do with the Federal Government nor is their anything they can do about it.

LOL did you really think the Federal Government would end idiots being offended by stupid shit?
PC is political, not governmental. It is a construct of those who want to minimize the voice of dissent by stigmatizing anything they find offensive. Best executed with a sliding scale.

No I get that and agree with you, it's just that some people seem to think that having Trump in the WH will suddenly make the whole PC thing magically go away.

We did. And we have our own version of Donald Trump, he even looks like him.

He is smarter than Trump, he is more of a bumbling idiot though, but what they have in common is that they are both unfit to lead a country.

After Brexit and our Prime Ministers resignation our idiot was favourite to become our next leader. Luckily, his political party stepped in quickly before disaster struck and that was that. Trump should have ended up the same way.

I think the way the world is now it was always going to be a republican president this time around whoever stood. But, the joke isn't on the democrats, it's on the republicans. They've basically wasted their "turn".

The idea of someone without a politically "corrupt" job for too many years is refreshing. I mean how can someone be a "career politician"! That would definitely make our founding fathers roll in their graves.

Trump was elected more so because he is/was not a politician. The last 8 years have been fraught with too much politicizing from the POTUS, and Congress!

Dems, Repubs, Rhinos, etc....have not contributed like in decades past.

NOTHING GETS DONE...is the status quo.

I actually think Trumps biggest obstacle will be republicans. Trump is NOT a republican.

^Looks to me as if the youngster is in the process of tackling him. Good for the kid! How dare the old fart go out and have some fun. Shameful.

So a friend of mine already got screwed by Trump.

Trump reversed the deduction Obama put in place for first time homebuyer on the FHA loan he was suppsoed to get a discount for that loan. Now it doesn't exist. That's roughly $500 gone for him.

Thanks Trump for screwing first time home buyers. More power to the rich!

Graceful isn't his nickname, I'm assuming.
Runs like a one legged chicken and hits like my niece might. He should just go to the pub and watch.

Not even a full day in office and he's already raising taxes on middle-class homebuyers.

People will quickly learn they voted against their own personal interests. QUICKLY!!!

Trump..... "transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people." This is already becoming a joke.
