It’s amazing how the country has taken a stance against the Washington Redskins. First we have the government signing a petition and sending it to Daniel Marc Snyder, and then we have the news about  the United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration, ruling that the name is “disparaging to Native Americans.”

Yes sir we now live in a country, where the trend is to satisfy the few, and screw what the many might think. Michael Berry has come up with the proper name for the team. He shared a picture on his facebook page, and I happened to run across.

Berry suggests changing the name of the team to the Washington Thinskins. Why not? It’s fitting. Especially in the times we are living in.

As a friend of mine put it just the other day; Everybody is so damned Politically Correct these days. Telling the truth is a forgotten, urgently needed (and widely vilified) art…

He’s right. When you speak the truth, people pick on you. It could cost you everything these days. You could lose a source of income over telling the truth. American was once the land of the free and the home of the brave.

No if you’re brave enough to speak your mind, you could become a victim. People have attended the Redskins football games for years. Now, it is a shame, the team has lost the protection of its trademark.

Berry is right, American people are so thin-skinned these days it’s a disgrace. It’s amazing the country is still able to act. If another world war were to break out, it would be amazing if the United States could win. No one wants to get their hands dirty anymore, and no one wants to fight for what’s right.

The name of a football team, is all that matters. The few who took issue were able to persuade the many, they didn’t like it. No more is America the land of democracy.  It’s the few who can control what happens.

Thin skinned is right. It’s time to get tough again. It’s time to not let the little things hurt your feelings. Come on people, let’s get back to the America that used to be able to kick butt. Lets stop letting the little things hurt people’s feelings.

Lets get back to the country we once were. A country that wouldn’t let the name of a football team control who we were.
