Re: Political Correctness is Dead! Time to say what you really think

All I know from hearing her speak is that she is a very free thinker! And is or was some form of commie. She is v comfortable with people having different views from her so she can’t be a proper commie. I’m easy to pigeonhole, and there’ll be many in that same pigeonhole with me. But she needs a pigeonhole all to herself!
I can imagine being a "very free thinker" requires loosening up a few screws. We are both in a way lucky that our handshakes don't have the power of changing the history, but don't be surprised if those who have such obligations won't shake your hand after your BP friends.

Unfortunately I don't enjoy offending people, even some UKIP loonies, self-proclaimed professors and ML experts, non-vegans, antique book traders or other types of cancers on the disintegrating social tissue. I felt bad all day after writing that post about that woman! It completely doesn't make sense, but that's true. I want to live in a deep forest with just non-human animals :'-(

"I respect kindness in human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law…"
"It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's rather that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody."

If you meet the President of Ireland, you call him "Michael" or "Leo", UK or NL you have to grovel in front of him. Soo hierarchical.

via miscellaneous, saints, sinners, thugs and guitarists
The first comma is superfluous.

antique book traders or other types of cancers on the disintegrating social tissue.
And auctioneers of antique books.

It wasn’t meant to be miscellaneous saints. It was miscellaneous (people) of which examples were saints, etc.

Viz def wrong here. A simple e.g. would have been fine but too formal.
