USA land of the Free, home of the Brave? No longer so

I will always treat individuals with respect and will change what I say to the best of my ability to cater to their personal needs.  Where I draw the line is when the State compels me to use certain language or face civil or criminal repercussions for not complying.

The mere notion of being fined or jailed for refusing to follow state-ordered speech is abhorrent to me.

We are taking the first steps towards totalitarianism.  Gulags are at the other end of this path.  Gulags and slavery.
