Rewriting the Dictionary

Just a couple of the words we thought we all understood until Progressive Social Justice started the rewrite:

GREED:  Greed used to be gluttonous covetousness – no matter who was doing it or why.

Now, if you are in OWS, and just feel wronged, deprived, or otherwise locked out of what you have not been able to earn on your own, it’s not greed they are expressing, it’s righteous indignation at income inequality.

I dunno… In my stupid, simple America, when you look at some guy who’s done well and rage “GIMME!!,” that’s GREED. Dangerous greed, based on an utterly unmerited, misplaced sense of self-entitled covetousness.

MARRIAGE:  Marriage used to be the union of one man and one woman.  It is the most basic building block of the community of man, made manifest by the most basic impulse of man, to survive, through the propagation of the species.  For 5,000 years we have understood this as fundamental to the organizational principles by which we self-regulate the sharing of space on planet earth, and long ago invented a word for it:  marriage.

It’s not political.

It just is.

Now, if we don’t confer the word, “marriage” on same-sex unions, we’re bad.

No.  No, we’re not.  We just think calling a puppy a kitten doesn’t make it feline.  It’s still canine, no matter how much you browbeat us.  A puppy is a puppy and a kitten is a kitten and those are the words that describe those organisms.

You want all the rights & privileges of a legal covenant binding two people together for life?  Fine! 

If you are lucky enough to find someone to make that precious covenant with you, to make that solemn promise to partner with you through the journey of life, you’re damned lucky and should be thankful.  We should all celebrate your good fortune.  God love ya!


I could go on… There’s whole dictionary full of words these people have changed and it makes me cranky.

Why Che and Mao AREN'T Cool…

One of the producers of this documentary holds a Master’s in History and remarked that she was ANGRY that she was never taught much of what she learned while putting together these video clips.

If you have ever seen a college student or a Hollywood celebrity wearing a Che or Mao t-shirt, forward them to this five part documentary.  And if you/they are inclined to believe Glenn Beck is an idiot, fine.  Watch it anyway and then produce some facts to support your assertions on where his is WRONG on his facts here.  I’m tired of people making ad hominem attacks on him and people who think like him.  Fine.  He’s fat.  He cries.  He’s a (sober) alcoholic.  Blah, blah, blah… WHAT IS HE WRONG ABOUT AND PRODUCE SOME FACTS FACTS FACTS to support your position!
