As a Veteran hearing about transgender no longer wanted in our Armed Services, my opinion is the same one I had about women and gays. If they want to serve our country, can shoot a weapon and hit the target, I would proudly serve next to them. Many earned the right in 1776, not all those who fought were straight males.

Politically correct or not? Well, I have my opinion on this, as well. I asked the 17-year-old and he said it meant, “Society and the Government wish us to think as they think.” He did surprise me, for I believe this, as well. It’s black and white. There’s right and wrong. I’d rather be biblically correct than politically correct. But does saying that mean I must say I am sorry? That is what I hear most politically correct people saying.

Sorry, I am old and I AM A MAINER. I only say I am sorry when it’s the right thing to do.
