    It's now political incorrect to use the term Islamic Terrorism anymore, new Home Land Security boss prefers the term "Man-Caused Disaster".

    I guess starting soon, the words Terror, Terrorism, Terrorists, Islamic Terrorism, and Domestic Terror will be banned from all DHS agencies (including Coast Guard public affair officers) correspondences.

    Man-Caused Disaster. Yeah, like some men from Saudi Arabia and other vacation hotspots came over here and caused a stinking disaster! Really 1984. What's the other thing we can't say now, 'enemy combatant.' I weep for the future.

    Hmmm :rolleyes:

    Let's see -- "AIG bailout" = "man-caused disaster"

    Congress' Response to same = "man-caused disaster"

    But... I'm still confused... I thought in a politically correct environment one didn't specify gender in such labels. Oh - wait! I forgot: the new Secretary of Homeland Security is... JANET Napolitano! :thumb:

    This is very sad though. Ironically we are reading texts from newspapers about using the word terrorist

    Do we have to put a friendly title on terrorists now? I guess it's a good thing. I'd hate to offend them :rolleyes:

    Murderers are now 'morally-confused beings.'
