American People wake up!

By peachcobbler ·
American People wake up! How can anyone still back this obviously delusional man who?s parading around as the ?President Of The United States? His very first mistake was to withdraw troops from Afghanistan before Usama Bin Laden was captured or killed, in order to invade Iraq. What American believes that Saddam Hussein presented more of a threat to America than does Usama Bin Laden? Saddam Hussein has been in the same place as The United States left him from the last declared war on Iraq. I still haven?t been able to find not one Iraqi name on the list of Terrorist that attacked us on 9/11, has anyone else found one?

There couldn?t have been a worse action by anyone else that could equate the actions of GWB manufacturing evidence to persuade this government and the American people to back him on the war with Iraq. He has shown no remorse about doing that, nor has he apologized to the other people who, for instance, Secretary Of State, Colin Powell for sending him to the UN with manufactured evidence to prove his point on WMD! America isn?t going to blame GWB for those actions the blame will go down in History as egregious actions on behalf of Secretary Of State, Colin Powell, a man who truly has served his country well, far better and longer than GWB.

History has proven that GWB has been and most likely will always be an egregious person without remorse of anything that he does. He allows other people to take blame for things that is rightfully his blame. He has never finished anything that he has started without intervention from higher ups to save his but. That was proven when he was enlisted in the National Guards. Now that he is suppose to be the Higher up, he has no one to blame but himself, therefore now he passes it bilaterally in order to save face. What President would make a statement or excuse by stating that Illegal Immigrants take jobs that Americans won?t take.

The truth of the matter is Americans can?t have the jobs that Illegal Immigrants take because if the people who employ illegal immigrants hired Americans for those jobs they would still be breaking the law, only much worse. They would be paying Americans less than minimum wages, which is illegal in America. They would also have to provide sanitary working conditions for American workers who would be able to file complaints about the illegal conditions and treatments by these employers! That is why this government wants things to remain the same. How many if any, illegal have filed complaints about the deplorable working conditions and housing they must live and work in?

Everyday I'm growing more and more disappointed with the American people. America has been a nation of people who have been able to see through Bull Fertilizer regardless of who the applicator is. Then why hasn't America said enough to this Bush administration as to their spreading of "Bull Fertilizer"? This is the most egregious Administration ever to be in office, and I can't understand why the American people are being so tolerant of this egregious behavior.

It has gone far beyond party affiliations; this has started to make Bush's own party sick. Bush is not Presidential material; he doesn't possess the qualities a leader of such an amazing country should have. Most of the world hates America because of this Administration, who has managed to undo most if not all of the good deeds that America has been able to accomplish in the last 12 years. I'm not going to mention the most egregious things that he has done, just the most recent.

Domestic spying has its place in a society where there is threat of annihilation of that society by outside forces. But first lets clean up the inside forces that are against us, before we go and spy on the very people who he believes elected him! Why hasn't anyone raised the question about the spies who have been caught spying in the higher ranks of our Government including his office? We've heard about them being caught but why haven't we heard about what has been done about it and to these traitors who were caught red handed? Some of who have been in very close proximity to George W. Bush in the White House!

What about the Vice President and his involvement in scandals that hasn't been addressed that sheds bad light on our Country and the administration in place now. GWB and all his cronies need to be held accountable for the egregious things they have done and are still doing. How can anyone expect other citizens to abide by the law when the heads of this country doesn't? Some Presidents have been brought up on Impeachment charges for far lesser offensives than what is at hand today, and I haven't heard one suggestion about Impeachment of this President! I respect the office of the President, not the man that is office now. I wouldn?t trust this man if his tongue was a notary stamp! Everyone, regardless of who they are, should be remorseful for the wrongs that they do. That includes, American Presidents!

Wheeeeee !!!

I've learnt a new word -- egregious.

Now I have to think of someone bad enough to apply it to.

Incidentally on the topic of extended vocabularly, for a time I carried a pocket dictionary with me all the time and noted new words. However I soon found that the majority of even educated people were unfamiliar with many of my new discoveries. Only people who dealt in words for a living -- writers, journos, politicians, lawyers and a few others -- had access to this extended vocabulary.

I found a good guideline was the American "Today Show." If Bryant Gumbel or Jane Pauley noted that a particular word was uncommon, then a majority of the population would not know it either.

sounding pompous.

I prefer to be lucid. I also try very hard to avoid ambiguity (something that was impressed upon me as a young journalist).

I typed the word "pompous" yesterday in my reply, then thought I will just be brief and typed just those two words :-)

I read that using strong verbs is better than weak and lengthy prose to convey the same meaning.

I have ways to go in improving my language and writing.

Economy of words

by jardinier In reply to I try very hard to avoid ...

is the order of the day. I guess I must have been born with journalist blood in my veins, because I used to get into trouble at school because my essays were too concise, and I was required to make them "flowery."

While I fell into journalism by default, because I could not decide what career to take, I later looked back and found that everything about me could be attributed to heredity.

My two vocations have been journalism and gardening. My maternal grandfather was an agriculural journalist. One of my uncles was a journalist turned farmer. So I guess I really had no say in the matter.

But what is even more interesting and surprising is that I recently realized that my writing style had been inherited directly from my father.

He started writing his autobiography titled: "Mein Kampf" (with no apologies to the late Corporal Hitler).

I had never looked at the document until a couple of years ago and I found that my current style of writing, which had evolved only in recent years, was identical to that of my father.

My posts at TR do not represent my normal (expressive) writing style because I don't bother to include the irony and humour.

[Although some people find my actual opinions a great source of humour -- which fact of course provides me with a source of humour -- etc ..... ]

Heredity and Handwriting

by onbliss In reply to Economy of words

Talking about heredity. Do you think there is any connection between a person's handwriting to that of his/her parents?

Sometimes I do feel my 7-yr old son took over his handwriting after my wife. Maybe he is too young to tell.

I have sensed that at times, my handwriting resembles to that of my father, but at times it takes after my mom's. And my handwriting resembles my brother's or sister's handwritings as well.

Wonder what the handwriting experts have to say.

Heredity probably also influences one getting the "green thumb".

"I've learnt a new word -- egregious". jardinier.

Good, now use it in a sentence. "Wheeeeee !!!"

I can't believe that a word, not at all a new one could cause so much commotion among grown men! You are grown men aren't you? If you don't use it you lose it! Seem as though the Boys need to catch up on Etymology!

I would prefer a Syntagmatic Structure.....

over the Paradigmatic myself. It certainly helps in the communincative arena in which we dwell. Of course if one where to perform a cloze test, with verifiable results, I could be persuaded.
Soooooooooooooooo, don't start.!. -d

You will eventually.

Sorry tjsanko, you have missed your chance ...

by jardinier In reply to Apply it to me, Now. ;-)

You have been agreeing with me too much lately. :^0

You have also lost the ability to get under my skin. If I don't like what you say, I just ignore you. ]:)
