Hillary reminds me of Woody Allen in "Zelig". He's a chameleon who changes
instantly to fit in with whatever situation he finds himself. And Hillary
Years ago, Pat Paulson would run for president, but only as a farce. In
every town he was hosted at, he would say something like, "You know, (this
town) is the most beautiful place in the United States, somewhere I'd like
to move to some day." (or something close to that) And he said that word
for word in every town that would throw a party or parade for him. It was
his swipe at politicians being chameleons.
I would describe Hillary as a chameleon, but I like those little lizards
more than to do that. Besides, chameleons don't have thighs that out of
But, we are using a medium that doesn't allow for translation of dialect,
body language, local colloquialisms, etc. Therefore your posts need to be
checked for completeness and accuracy if you want your thoughts to be
interpreted correctly. Typos arent an issue but wrong use of words can
completely change the context of a sentence. "loose" and "lose" are by far
the biggest example I have ever seen of this and do change context when
transposed. Would you rather the enemy "loose" his missiles or "lose" his
Totally, true. My point is that the credibility of these twenty-something
morons who don't have a clue that they are using lose/loose (and others)
incorrectly is suspect. If they have such disregard for basic spelling,
they generally aren't too specific about other things either. Like facts.
And then if that doesn't work, they run their potty mouths and end every
other word in "tard", whatever that means.
here here (or is it hear hear...lol)
I agree 100%. I encounter numerous individuals that you
just described on a daily basis and it's almost commonplace.
I feel our education environment is severely lacking and needs
this is an interesting topic. to some degree, i have to agree with
you. english skills have definately declined. writing skills
included. on the other hand, i am not quite as anal about it as you
are. in fact, steve, you seem to get pretty stressed about a lot of
anyway, there is a lot of reading that you can do on this very subject
and the prevailing opinion seems to be that we are in a transition.
writing skills simply will not be as valuable in the future. to some
degree steve, you are judging a new world with old world rules.
technology may very well do your writing for you soon. it already can
do quite a bit. for instance steve, i could put this post through a
software program that would add capitals, correct my puncuation,
correct my spelling errors and make grammar changes. but then, what
for? you would not understand what i wrote any better. it would just
fit into your structured rules a little better and as a result your
blood pressure would not have to rise as you read it. that however,
is really your problem.
so, while to some degree you have a point, i still think that you are
just a very uptight, anal dweeb who just needs to try to find some
reason that he can feel that he is in some way superior to others. if
it wasn't grammar, you would just find another source of irritation.
you are just one of those stuffy people that ends up blowing an o-ring
early in life because you don't have any idea about what is really
important and what isn't.
just saying steve.

You confuse two issues: feeling superior, and being superior.
People who disdain details and are sloppy in their writing are very likely
to be sloppy about everything else in their lives.
Therefore, inferior beings.
Can't come up with a logical lucid counterpoint, so you just grab at a
racial slur. Thoroughly expected and understood. You are so predictable
Simply stated, those who choose to remain uneducated, unmotivated and
unimproved can best be described as inferior. It is basic human nature for
one to want better for themselves and their families. Each generation wants
a better life for their progeny. Each person wants something better.
Especially if they are cognizant enough of their own personal situation to
realize that they are living a life of settling for less. Most rich and
successful people in history have not started off that way, but come through
adversity, poverty, hardship, and challenges to succeed. These are the
superior beings. Not the ones who sit back and accept the status quo
because that's the way it's always been done, because it's easier to blame
someone else than accept responsibility for one's own failures, or just that
they're too lazy to make any effort. And our society has made it easier by
pandering to these voting slugs by providing social welfare programs,
giveaways and entitlements.
If you can't understand the concept of inferior/superior beings, you really
ARE one of the stupid ones. History is full of them. It's all written down
in books. You have heard of books, right?
You must be able to read, although your ability to write is questionable.
Read. Study. Improve yourself. Stop being inferior. It's the easy way
the rest of the rant edited out as my service to my fellow man for
dweeb steve......you are one huge moron. i bet you got picked on as a
kid. that makes we wonder........with that many guns, how long will
it be before we read about you in the paper?
pretending to be an intellectual after you get out of jr. high school
for the day by using your momys computer is going to get you into
trouble little boy.
Still can't discuss the issues and questions posed, but have to resort to ad
hominem attacks, eh?
Come back when you can logically debate the issues posed.
And in the meantime, work on that spelling and grammar and punctuation.
You REALLY suck at it. But, hey, it's never too late to go back to school
and graduate. Even if it is a GES diploma.
Do something about your inferiority besides flagrantly demonstrate it.
Yes, I did. And D and S are very close on the keyboard.
But, Hey, I made the mistake. At least I have my then/than, your,you're,
their/there/they're, and two/to/too usages correct.
Thanks for bringing that to my attention.
So it is "ok" for you to make mistakes, but no one else. It is ok for you
to jump on some one for omitting a very small piece of information, only to
turn around and do the very same thing? Double standards once again, are
you related to Al Sharpton and/or Jesse Jackson?
