Eastwood thinks political correctness has made society humourless . . .

London, February 27 (ANI): Acting legend Clint Eastwood , 79, apparently believes that political correctness has rendered modern society humourless, for he accuses younger generations of spending too much time trying to avoid being offensive.

The Dirty Harry star insists that he should be able to tell harmless jokes about nationality without fearing that people may brand him "a racist".

"People have lost their sense of humour. In former times we constantly made jokes about different races. You can only tell them today with one hand over your mouth or you will be insulted as a racist," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

"I find that ridiculous. In those earlier days every friendly clique had a 'Sam the Jew' or 'Jose the Mexican' - but we didn't think anything of it or have a racist thought. It was just normal that we made jokes based on our nationality or ethnicity. That was never a problem. I don't want to be politically correct.

We're all spending too much time and energy trying to be politically correct about everything," he added. (ANI)

(Thank you so much Mr. Eastwood! You are a fresh breath of air in Hollywood, but then again you never have been a part of Hollywood sellouts! God speed in all you do! Oh and PS, "you made my day!" VN8)

You usually listen to that you can inform fake watches from an genuine one particular from the easy movement from the 2nd hand. This really is a myth, thanks to the fact that a lot of tag heuer replica uk use affordable quartz crystal engines which generate the telltale start/stop movement noticeable when per 2nd from the sweep. In case you observe carefully you may see that even an authentic rolex replica sale does not have a completely sleek second-hand sweep, but really 8 movements per second. The rolex replica sale only real watch mechanisms that had a second-hand using a correct, uninterrupted sweep had been the replica watches uk and also the Bulova tuning-fork motion. That becoming said, several of the superior breitling replica available on the market have automatic movements, and Rolex Mens has produced a number of designs with quartz movements which creates the distinct quartz motion ticks.
