    ditch witch I do stupid crap, so you don't have to

    It doesn't bother me when it's a skater using it, but when marketing companies apply it to everything from cheesy romance novels to a new flavor of Doritos, it's time to retire the word. Much like "racism" it no longer has any meaning.

    I hate that too. Every time I disagree with a black. Suddenly I must be a racist. (No, I dislike you because you're an @$$hole, not because you're black)

    "Common Sense Gun Laws"........ an oxymoron to beat them all.

    Can't bring myself to hate words. Words=communication & I like to communicate. I have no problem strongly disliking a message that words might convey. No problem with strongly disliking the messenger, as well. I'm only a picky human after all! On the flip side, I also understand that anybody else is free to reciprocate in kind.

    Two talking point phrases that used to be favorites mostly used by politicians and pundits on the political left is: "at the end of the day" and "the fact of the matter is (or remains).....". I first noticed these two phrases years ago when Teddy Kennedy used them repeatedly as a summarizing phrases for several of his viewpoints. They still comes up every once in a while (Dem Party Chair Debbie Wasserman Shultz lately), but appear to have been put on the back burner by them due to over-use.

    Another phrase most often used in attempt to churn up public sympathy for some new federal law or regulation is: "if it just saves one CHILD" and its cousin "it's for the CHILDREN". Again, it seems that the big govt-leaning politicians and pundits spew these out on a regular basis much more than those on the conservative side.

    All political solutions must now be "comprehensive". They only succeed in creating division, expense and a need for more "comprehensive" solutions.
