I see a future as close as Tuesday where "Progressives" are standing at the door monitoring costumes for political correctness.

Well you're welcome to dress as Pocohontas, carry a bottle in a brown bag and say 'Trick or Treat" like your jaw's wired shut while you knock on doors on the rez if you like. We'll watch.

Serious question: What do you think should happen if someone goes dressed as a 9/11 victim or a dead US soldier?

And how would I know that they are a 9/11 victim or a dead US soldier. Dead is a theme for teens and all the military costumes I have ever seen (store bought) are US. It’s a costume kids are pretending all sorts of things. Most the out rage seems to be from people who want to be upset for others.

Does it matter how you would know? Say they told everyone that’s what it is, or they had a sign around their neck. Oe maybe their costume is the twin towers with a plane going into it and little dead bodies hanging out the windows with fake flames. It doesn’t matter.

The question is: What if anything do you think should happen to that person?

Nothing at all. What do you think should happen to them?

Well if it’s at work or school or any other kind of organized activity then I support the right of the employer/organizer to distance themselves from that person if they choose, for example not allowing that costume at the event or sanctioning the individual.

But that’s about it I guess.

I for one like to think that free speech has limits, especially when applied to minorities. EVERYONE has the right to express their desire to not be exposed to ridicule because of their religion, sexuality or race. Or to be exposed to very offensive images. I'm sure I would be inviting a punch in the nose if I walked around with a tee on with the above message or I wore a tee with a picture of a neighbours mom with WHORE written across it. Get over yourselves and realize what the word civil means in civil society.

Let kids be kids. What does this say about us as a society when we can't let kids express themselves for ONE DAY out of the year and be something they want to be. Halloween is for the kids. Let them have this day. Let them dress up as whatever the hell they want and have fun doing so. Let them eat the candy they collected and remember years from now all the fun they had when they had the chance.

Nothing just cause I don’t think something is appropriate doesn’t mean I get to set the rules of the world. I just don’t think everyone should get so bent out of shape over everything.

I can tell you what did happen. :)

Two British teenagers had an unconventional Halloween costume last week: the burning Twin Towers.

Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, 19-year-old students at the University of Chester, dressed up as the Twin Towers for Halloween. The pair donned American flags on their heads and wore tower outfits that featured planes, explosions, smoke and people jumping to their deaths from the upper floors.

Langford and Collinge won the "best dressed" award at Rosie's nightclub in Chester that night, and received about $240 in shopping vouchers.

God, what a racist you are. I would never have even thought of that.

Although...

I had a girlfriend on the reserve one time. I went to a Halloween party as a bald cowboy with a bloody head. :D

Wow I guess that did happen!

Anyway I see that outrage ensued and everyone was forced to apologize
