County deletes 'master-slave' PC term
By Troy Anderson , Staff Writer

Los Angeles County officials have gone PC (politically correct) on PCs (personal computers) -- banning as potentially "offensive or defamatory" the words master and slave from computer hard drives and video equipment where they are used to describe primary and secondary circuits.

What's next? Will we have to change the Boy Scouts to
"Adolesent Male Scouts"?

Wow, what a steaming load of crap. They can quit calling stuff master and slave on the outside, whop-de-do-not. But it wont matter inside, because that would take an act of the gods to rewrite the technical language to remove use of the concept of master/slave. Whats even funnier is a master IDE drive for instance does more work than the slave drive would. I'm sorry but stupidity on this level should be rewarded with severe physical pain...

Yes, it does, when you are the lunatic liberals trying to implement their Newspeak.

The East Coast and the West Coast are like two different countries. I'd rather I live out here (east).
It's a little boring though.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!


I really ain't to sure about those Californians.....How long do we have to wait for them to break off into the ocean???


Seriously, when does the political correctness end. Can we have the word Hard also removed from computers. God knows it brings up images of porn all over the net.

You tax dollars hard at work in L. A. County!!! Here we have a case that thousands of tax dollars of hard working Californians have been wasted because ONE L. A. County employee objected to the term "master/slave" on video and computer equipment. Did anyone in the L. A. County government ever compute the economic cost of this "politically correct" action to the L. A. County taxpayer? I suppose it is all right to spend money to assage the hurt feelings of ONE county employee (who probably is not doing much to earn their salary anyway) while p**sing off millions of L. A. County residents who must pay for this type of nonsense.

They'll come up with something lame to replace the master/slave thing....same thing is happening here in texas. Some of the hispanic leaders here have declared that the term "hispanic" is debaseing and a slang term. They want the term to be illegal and insead say that the only acceptable term they can be refered to is latino.

PC crap is alive and well.

So when does honky, white-boy, red-neck, whitey, or any other derrogatory statement towards whites become an issue. Wait, spic, 'n-word', wap, red-belly, wetback are all still available so the white man has no reason to complain yet. Cut this racial # out of society, I could care less, its free speech in this country so banning words is absurd. Where is the ACLU when they really have a constitutional issue?


If HISPANICS don't like our culture , gtfu.

Sorry if I am blunt, but this is a joke.


Maybe Americas motto should be that old saying,

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."

People need to stop being so sensitive to this #.

Everyone with the name LYNCH should change it now. If dirty Hillary takes over, we will probably have the speech police replace the homeland security, and an abortion clinic with a drive-thru on every corner.
