From “brainstorming” to “thought showers”: Why leftist lunacy defies predictions

David MenziesMission Specialist

I made a six-pack of purposefully outrageous predictions in my last rant of 2018. With tongue firmly planted in cheek, I made up the dumbest ideas imaginable for the kind of PC insanity we would experience in 2019, but it appears I goofed.

After that ridiculous rant was posted, a few UK viewers weighed in noting that one of my predictions actually came true in Great Britain – a full decade ago!

I had prophesied that the term “brainstorming” would come under the ban this year because some people suffering from mental illness might feel the word mocked their condition.

Despite the word having absolutely nothing to do with mental illness, way back in 2008 the Tunbridge Wells Borough Council in Kent, England, decided that the term might be offensive to mentally-ill people and those suffering from epilepsy.

An edict was issued to ban the word “brainstorming” and replace it with “thought showers.”

Even charities representing those suffering from mental illness and epilepsy said the ban went too far and that virtually nobody was offended, but that didn’t stop those who feel it’s their duty to be offended on behalf of others.

Apologies to all for predicting lunacy that had already taken root a decade ago.

Clearly, given the status quo of the loony left these days, trying to avoid predicting their actual next act of madness might prove to be my most challenging endeavour in 2020.

I think this will work? Im not sure about posting youtube videos. BUT for those who would like a good chuckle click on the Kung pao Buckaroo’s and Brad Paisley video below. very cute, although ironically there name isn’t very PC, ha ha they should have ‘thought showered’ a little more before coming up with it.

You can’t win when it comes to lunacy, Dave. We’re afflicted with common sense so it’s difficult to think illogically. It’s like walking backward. We can do it but it’s difficult. By the way, will PETA harass rock groups which have animal names? I wouldn’t put it past those loons.

Imagine if they said no more using the f-bomb.
There’d be an f…. war take place.

The disorientation of mankind, the youngsters of today are all people who have been brainwashed by the Marxist educational system. They act like junior grade school kids, making up new words and dis-inventing old ones, sometimes I think they are communicating in a foreign language. It would be better to just stick with good old fashioned English, all speaking understandable words that will not run out of fashion in future months. God help them if they ever have to go to war.

Seems to me millions among us must go to sleep with their smartphones and tablets within reach so that every time they wake up they can Google up something to be offended by before they even lift their heads off the pillow.
Sounds to me like the exact opposite of jumping out of bed in the morning and going for a good dump.
