“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose. Language was invented for one reason, boys - to woo women - and, in that endeavor, laziness will not do”—Dead Poets Society (1989)
Interesting that since democracy WORKED with ACA (and I use that loosely because we are rarely a true democracy), people want to argue that the system is broken and ELECTED officials shouldn’t be the only ones who get to vote on laws……….
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. When you are seeking to bring big plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate. Hang out with friends who are like-minded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly, be that kind of a friend for your friends.”—Mark Twain
But the Oreo Gay Pride cookies and the JC Penny advertisements is one of the biggest examples of why I hate the comparisons with Civil Rights’ Movement. There were not dozens of massive corporations backing that movement. They weren’t donating in the millions for it. They weren’t (and still aren’t) trying to be progressive in their advertisement by including and humanizing us.
I don’t mind Conservatives and can even respect where many come from. But GOPBlackChick (on Twitter) is just too much for me. She’s rude, disrespectful and ridiculous. And trust, I had other words I would rather use, but I’m trying to keep it classy.
