    Your agreement with my point isn't necessary, it is my point and you are free to have your own. Didn't you know the word "oriental"? Personally, I use it quite frequently but, yes, I do know the term Asian. Now, if I refer to a group of people as Oriental, does that mean that they are not Asian? Of course not, it only means that they are from one of the sections that make up Asia, which are several, and composed of several countries. I might add, you might be considered the one out of touch and lacking vocabulary. But, what the hell, it is all in fun, don't you think?

Yep, I think they will like it.
    Excellent insight that bears repeating! At the very least, it tells me that Kim Jong Un is sincere, else why would he give them a reason to revolt should he back out?

    And you never had the right to assign nefarious motivations to people who use words and phrases that you choose not to use. Nobody was disrespected here. You just chose to make a big deal about a word that was perfectly appropriate to use when many of us were comin' up. That's you trying to impose your own politically correct nonsense on people who have every right in the world to reject it. It's you disrespecting people here, not OG or me.

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Philly: You seem to be some what confused in your post. Race and ethnicity are not characteristics that one can arbitrarily change to alter any discussion. My use of the word "oriental" seems to have upset you because you either didn't know its meaning, or you preferred using another. In any event, use of either is permissible and is the choice of the writer. I might suggest a little study on your part and increase your vocabulary.

    I bought an Oriental rug less than a year ago from a store that has Oriental in the business name. I have a friend whose wife is Japanese who makes Oriental salad for his lunch frequently. Our neighborhood has a restaurant with Oriental in it and my niece builds indoor Oriental gardens. It's not derogatory unless someone is offended and if they are then do what they ask or don't. It's a characteristic of, or pertaining to the Orient. It's not making fun of their language or the way they talk or their appearance.

    Leftists are the biggest bullys using ridicule and insults as they demand everyone must think, believe, do, and even speak in ways that leftists consider acceptable while they take your lunch money by demanding everyone pay more taxes to finance every cause the leftists have in their agenda of elevating themselves by putting down anyone and everyone who doesn't agree with them.

    One only needs read the posts of leftists on internet forums (especially this forum) and to watch the main stream media to see the truth of who the bullys are.
