fascism : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.
People people... Please. You are all rushing to conclusions saying this letter means he's not an alcoholic. Perhaps if you were of more sober mind you would see that's its likely not what was meant.
>1 : one who digs for gold
>2 : a person who uses charm to extract money or gifts from others
Maybe if you spent two seconds using google you wouldn't look like a "retart".
Google actually use Oxford's dictionary, So google didn't alter the meaning, Oxford did. Oxford is more pro-sjw and Webster is more anti-sjw.
Defined as "the crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought."
Since the Death Eaters were attacking Hogwarts and the students, Neville was acting in the defense of himself and others, so I'd say the distinction between kill and murder is definitely applicable here.
> but you should know that "Act of God" is commonly used to refer to an "Accident"--something beyond human control, such as natural disasters, or anomaly mechanical failures.
Your source only mentions natural disasters, not mechanical failure as you claim. Several other sources, like the Cornell Law Library and Webster's Dictionary, confirm this.
Perry made the comments two weeks later. What, did he think there may have been a hurricane that no one had noticed?
Edit: People are questioning how Perry used the term "act of god". Here he is in his own words:
> Asked what he meant by the phrase, Perry said, “Here's what I want you to do. I want you to go look it up, the definition, in the dictionary. I meant exactly what Webster's says by that."
Not sure how people don't know this, but general sadness is literally part of the dictionary definition of depression.
In fact, I think this colloquial sense predates the clinical definition.
>(1) : a state of feeling sad : dejection <anger, anxiety, and depression>
The clinical sense is not the only definition, just the most prominent one these days.
>(2) : a psychoneurotic or psychotic disorder marked especially by sadness, inactivity, difficulty in thinking and concentration, a significant increase or decrease in appetite and time spent sleeping, feelings of dejection and hopelessness, and sometimes suicidal tendencies <bouts of depression> <suffering from clinical depression>
Temporary depression isn't an oxymoron, it is using a different meaning of the word which is every bit as valid. If you want to avoid ambiguity you can just say clinical depression to refer to the disorder, that way people won't misinterpret it as just a temporary unhappiness.
In fairness, another way to avoid ambiguity would be to avoid saying "depressed" when you mean "sad", but at this point that is still a perfectly legitimate and common use of the word.
I hate to contradict you my friend, but anorexia actually is a medical term for a lack or loss of appetite for food, as well as a name for the eating disorder (anorexia nervosa).
My two favorite definitions to point out to liberals: McCarthyism and the actual definition of bigotry.
Out of curiosity, I decided to look up the various dictionary definitions to see whether there were any sense in which the statement wasn't just bullshit. From Merriam-Webster, "witness, <em>n</em>.: 4. one who has personal knowledge of something"
The world's population is larger today than at any previous US presidential inauguration, and modern digital & social media make the worldwide spread of information easier than for all former inaugurations with the possible exception of Obama's, so...it depends on what the meaning of 'is' is...(forthcoming drinking games based on WHPS ~~doublespea~~ statements may kill a lot of us the next few years)
ETA: finished listening to the video of the WHPS. IANAPhysician, but sounds like that dude's blood pressure is through the roof. Wow.
Horses need someone to look after them full-time. Just Look at the etymology of the word "manager"
>Origin and Etymology of manage
>Italian maneggio management, training of a horse, from maneggiare

>Kinda sad that these folks have to go in on their day off to do pro bono work.
It is sad that they had to do work for the public good on a Sunday. I wonder if the person responsible for this state of affairs will ever be able to acknowledge that.
Emolument: the returns arising from office or employment usually in the form of compensation or perquisites
Of course it includes regular business transactions. There is no interpretation. It's literally by definition. The People's Republic of China is literally leasing office space in Trump Tower. China is paying him. We have a PEOTUS who is obliged to the Chinese. This doesn't get more clear cut. There is no interpretation.
In all seriousness, though, research by Caspi and Herbener (1990) supports that actually people married to a spouse highly similar to themselves showed most personality stability while people married to a spouse at least similar to themselves showed most personality change. The parent comment stating that they'd choose personality compatibility over looks is wise. There is likely more current research, however I am not presently interested in searching for it.
Personalities change over the course of relationships, but not nearly as much as people think.
> Martial law? Sending in federal agents does not mean martial law.
I mean, does it not?
"the law administered by military forces that is invoked by a government in an emergency when the civilian law enforcement agencies are unable to maintain public order and safety"
That's the definition of a Rumor.
An unconfirmed statement by an unconfirmed spokesperson, speaking about the unconfirmed actions of a separate organization.

The word you're looking for is seceded, although your way is also funnier :)
'Schizoramble' is exactly how I'd describe that.
Also, the Latin phrase he had a stab at is 'in extremis', not "en extremis", and it doesn't mean "in the extreme", it means 'in dire circumstances'.
No, it translates to "temporary sadness" or something along those lines, just like it sounds like it would. Clinical depression is not the only definition of the word: [link]
Can the mods clarify what is off-limits under the "no politics" rule, and specifically address whether the rule takes into account the difference between politics and policy?
I don't want to be argumentative, nor do I want to flout the rules. So, I want to make clear that I am asking because I believe there is a lack of clarity.
For example, are we allowed to discuss the effect that trade policy or tax policy or fiscal policy may have on the markets? I don't believe that such a discussion of policy is necessarily political, as long as it's not advocating for a specific position or trying to influence others to hold a certain view.
To give a concrete example, if tax policy changed and the USA abandoned progressive taxation and adopted a flat tax, would we be permitted to discuss the effect that change would have on our FI planning, as long as the discussion didn't veer into whether the change was "good" or "bad"?
> But but ACHTKTUALLY the US is a republic not a democracy
God, everytime I read that I want to beat them with a hammer. Return to civics class and learn that word democracy has more than one meaning

It's an older sense of the word but it checks out. Rebel scum was lying his pants off.
Hmm, people didn't get your pun.
There's a less used definition of the word "dumb" (the first definition in Merriam-Webster in fact) which predates the pejorative meaning most of us are familiar with. It means "lacking the ability to speak".
Wait. 'Throwing a game' means 'lost a game on purpose'. Didn't he literally lose a game on purpose?
Edit: Furthermore, as stated below the official definition of the word 'literally' says it can now 'emphasize a statement or description that is not literally true or possible". Language evolves, I guess.
> There are literally no other qualifications needed to be PUSA
There's only 3 and somehow you still managed to get it wrong. The third one you didn't mention is be a resident of the US for 14 years.
Regardless, I'm tired of this trope. When someone says he's unqualified they don't mean he doesn't meet the requirements, and unless you're thick or being pedantic you should know that. Kim Kardashian meets the requirements but no one would argue she's qualified to be President. There's more than one meaning to the word qualified and when talking about Trump and the Presidency the meaning being used is a synonym for competent, not eligible.
Etymonline agrees with OP. Also, the OED is one of the most used sources in linguistics when it comes to etymology, I'd not be so quick to dismiss it.
Also, no they don't
"Vanguard" is Merriam-Webster's word of the day.
1 : the troops moving at the head of an army
2 : the forefront of an action or movement
It turns out "hanged" is the correct term to use when referring to a person's execution by hanging, while "hung" is mainly used to refer to hanging inanimate objects. [link]
There is really no argument against this one. "Wet work" is in the Marriam-Webster dictionary for goodness sake.
"didn't think wet works meant pool parties at the Vineyard."
"sounds like it will be a bad nite..."
> This explains a lot. I've always used the dictionary definition of 'globalist', which involves trade.
Wrong. You were misinformed about what the definition of 'globalist' was. It's OK to admit that.
>noun glob·al·ism \ˈglō-bə-ˌli-zəm\
>Definition of globalism
>: a national policy of treating the whole world as a proper sphere for political influence
>If the right-wing has redefined the term to a synonym for 'traitor', then their reactions make sense.
It hasn't been redefined, and it's not a synonym for traitor. A globalist is an advocate of globalism, and globalists are people who believe that nation states are not sovereign entities and that more political power needs to be ceded to global and supranational political entities.
>They're still wrong, of course.
No, you are wrong, as I've proven by citing the actual dictionary definition of globalism.
>The dictionary defines 'globalist' as an advocate of global free trade.
There is more than one dictionary. I cited the highest quality and most well regarded dictionary in the United States. Nothing about trade. EDIT: I spent 10 minutes trying to find a dictionary that gave a definition that mentioned the word trade. Couldn't do it.
>Trump has appointed a lot of globalists, using the dictionary definition.
.... good grief. you've got it completely backwards.

You are technically correct, but the entry for "incorrect" would include the adverb form, thus "incorrectly" is still a word in the dictionary. The post never specified top-level entries, only words appearing in the dictionary.
This unfunny comment in /r/dadjokes has been brought to you by the concept of pedantry.
I'm one of those people that thinks that male circumcision is the current largest moral evil in terms of scale in America. Maybe I can give my .02.
I would do that, call it cosmetic surgery, except it fits the dictionary definition of mutilation. It is permanent damage being done to an appendage, unless you're aware of some way to return the foreskin to pre-removal status. It being mutilation by means of surgery, cosmetic or otherwise, does not mean it is not mutilation.
Now, mutilation is a loaded word, yes, and if it sounds bad when we use it, it's because we think it's that bad. Worse, actually, in my opinion. Mutilation isn't really a strong enough word to me.
And in circumcising a child, for no benefit (there are studies indicating some marginal effects, but these are methodologically biased in the same way that the studies produced in north africa showing the same benefits to FGM are methodologically biased), you are permamently removing a functioning part of their body, more than doubling their risk of ED, reducing their sexual response in the first place, and causing permanent psychological harm as with any early life harm.
You may not notice the harm in yourself or people you know, but, by analogy, it can be awful hard to spot a methane fire by a stove when the whole house is burning down around it.
And if someone believes in circumcision, they should have every right to choose it. For themselves.
Would you accept your mother or father forcing you to get a facial tattoo of the thing you hate most? I mean hey, tattoos have very little long term damage, after all. Or is that ridiculous because it wasn't your right to choose whether you got tattooed or not?
And if you wouldn't, why would you accept anyone's right to chop a piece of their kid's body off because they didn't like it?
The belief in tolerance of other viewpoints, the poison of modern society.
Edit: wow the brigade is strong with the the trumpets. c : a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy (see autonomy 2) of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties
Maybe you're actually Russian and English isn't your native language, but "vote your conscience" is actually the correct phrasing in English.
Try to be less of a dick.
Not sure if your aware that the term "Liberalism" does not refer to American or any other Liberals. But refers to the majority of Western political beliefs over the last 50-100 years. It's a broad term that can include large amounts of conservative views and thoughts. [link] for instance capitalism and libertarianism fall within the overarching term Liberalism.
Try getting a dictionary definition next time:
1. often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control <early instances of army fascism and brutality — J. W. Aldridge>
Ah yes, the textbook alt-right response to charges of bigotry, cherrypicking the dictionary definition to make it either appear as just protesting against those with differing opinions or generalizing it to the point of banality, and disregarding the way it's actually used in common parlance to take the teeth out of the label. Let's check out the definition:
> a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance
OP being a bigot would be hating and dismissing his/her neighbor for simply being outside of his/her ethnic/religious/sexual group, not peacefully protesting against a specific person who holds aggressively hostile views. TLDR; Disagreement != bigotry
>the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion
These "protesters" have been attacking Milo all around the country, using violence in an attempt to silence him. That is the exact definition of terrorism. The only reason you're saying that it isn't terrorism is because you sympathize with the terrorists. You're on their side.

FAKE NEWS. It's actually bald-faced. Although bold-faced is a thing, but it's not the thing you meant.

> I have zero faith, I have absolutely confidence that CIG can reach their goal
You do have faith, though.
b (1) : firm belief in something for which there is no proof (2) : complete trust
Well, they claim that "gruntle" meaning pleased is a recent meaning, based on the obvious confusion. I won't disagree with that. But read further in the definition's article:
>The verb disgruntle, which has been around since 1682, means "to make ill-humored or discontented." The prefix dis- often means "to do the opposite of," so people might naturally assume that if there is a disgruntle, there must have first been a gruntle with exactly the opposite meaning. But dis- doesn't always work that way; in some rare cases it functions instead as an intensifier. Disgruntle developed from this intensifying sense of dis- plus gruntle, an old word (now used only in British dialect) meaning "to grumble." In the 1920s, a writer humorously used gruntle to mean "to make happy"—in other words, as an antonym of disgruntle. The use caught on. At first gruntle was used only in humorous ways, but people eventually began to use it seriously as well.
Moreover look up their etymology of "disgruntle", as well as their definition #4 of "dis-". All of it agrees with what I (and the OED) said.
Neil deGrasse Tyson has a doctorate degree in astrophysics. In 1994, Tyson joined the Hayden Planetarium as a staff scientist while he was a research affiliate in Princeton University. He became acting director of the planetarium in June 1995 and was appointed director in 1996.
Seeing as though the definition of scientist is (And I just did this for Bill Nye) a person learned in science and especially natural science, I would certainly argue that Neil is a scientist.
'Snowflake' was originally used as an insult by the Confederates against Americans who campaigned ~~against~~ [in favour of] slavery. Make of that what you will.
Since you failed to support your statement let's start here
To defame someone with a false statement in print or broadcast
"He is a racist homophobe"
To damage ones character by means of false statements
"Milo is a white nationalist"
As a gay foreigner with a pension for Black men, I would dare say all of the statements are false and potentially damaging to his integrity.
But your retort of "no" is a pretty powerful argument. So I guess you have that.
Spezit: after reviewing your post history I regret an attempt at intelligent dialogue. So be it.
False. As Merriam-Webster explains, it is indeed a word. "Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead."
What are you saying? "The first definition in the listing of definitions in the dictionary is the only definition"? The "primary" definition of the verb produce is "to offer to view or notice", so are the meanings relating to creation and manufacturing less important?
For a non native speaker, that's seriously impressive.
I think she has it backwards about the extra /j/ or /y/ though for words with stu/eu. At least for the most common accents because it varies in both.
OED - /ˈstjuːpɪd/
Merriam-webster - /stu·pid/ /ˈstü-pəd, ˈstyü-/
>a : one engaged in military service and especially in the army
>b : an enlisted man or woman
>c : a skilled warrior
The term 'soldier' being used to refer to someone just in the Army is a convention unique to just the US armed forces.
Actually, it is the look of "WTF? Why is this woman posing for a dozen photos right in front of me? And why is she wearing a bathing suit in January? It's cold out here. Look at the crew they have, I bet these photos are for one of those New York magazines. Damn yankees. Don't they need a permit for that?"
But you don't need three people to be jealous and you can be jealous over things. (That Psychology Today article is reaching, not definitive).
According to Merriam-Webster jealous may be used to mean both “covetous” and “possessively suspicious”, envious is only used to mean covetous.
Apparently, "Goombah" is a word. It's slang for an older friend or companion who advises you or protects you. Never stomping one of those again!

I don't really see how a "value for value trade" doesn't meet the definition of "emolument".

The rule the GOP used.
>Under the Senate’s “Rule 19,” senators are not allowed to “directly or indirectly, by any form of words impute to another Senator or to other Senators any conduct or motive unworthy or unbecoming a Senator."
(>Impute | Definition of Impute by Merriam-Webster
Impute is a somewhat formal word that is used to suggest that someone or something has done or is guilty of something. It is similar in meaning to such words as ascribe and attribute, though it is more likely to suggest an association with something that brings discredit.)
But the point was made that Sessions is being vetted for the U S attorney general job, so the rule should not even apply. The other point made was that McConnell did not get bent out of shape until Mrs King was quoted. C-Span will have the youtube for Mitch's reaction. Viewers said it was obvious that set the GOP off.
>McConnell also specifically pointed to Warren quoting a letter from the late Coretta Scott King, civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King Jr., as evidence that she had broken the rules.
This is not that cut and dried. There is debate among linguists as to what an initialism is vs. what an acronym is. Merriam-Webster defines intialisms as a subset of acronyms.
Most also seem to think that whether you say "SCUBA" or "ess cee you bee ay", it's still an acronym, which defies the claim that pronouncing it as a word is what makes it an acronym.
> abstaining from singing in a choir have to do with politics?

Not to belabor the point any further, but "being anal" is just a colloquialism for "being anal retentive", and there's really only one way to interpret it:
If he said "you are an ass" (or heaven forbid he attach the "hole" at the end) then that would be totally different and completely justified. =)
Det jeg snakker om er den mainstream akademiske forståelsen av begrepet sosialisme, og hva du vil finne i en ordbok. Eksempelvis: [link]

Arbeiderpartiet var sosialistisk en gang på 30-tallet eller deromkring, men det er lenge siden nå. At de vokste ut av sosialisme er jeg helt enig i, men det tilsier ikke at sosialdemokrati er sosialistisk.
>Academia has all but abandoned the classical approach to intellectual engagement. Now prevailing liberal positions are treated as dogma. Tangentially, I was recently told that high schools in the US don't teach logic. We're fucked.
Spot on. I actually agree with the left that Milo and his entourage argue in bad faith and are mostly hacks and trolls, but banning them from speaking at public universities definitely crosses a line, and I think most honest leftists even acknowledge that.
I'm not going to make assumptions into your physicality beyond what this sentence has already done by having to exist as a response to your comment, but simply put, unless someone suffers from reduced motor function, I can't see why anyone would have any difficulty biting those areas. It's not difficult, and the description matches the symptoms, well, perfectly.
"a habit or compulsion of gnawing or eating one's own skin, most commonly at the fingers."
That's a really weird pronounciation guide they have, but tahy-row is not far off from people saying tie-row.
OED says: ˈtʌɪrəʊ
which uses the standardized International Pronunciation Guide
This indicates as you're pronouncing the word, your tongue should be in the middle of your mouth for a, moving forward from the a to the i noise (this is what they're trying to force you to do by saying "tahy"), then back to the middle for the e, and to the back of your mouth for u. So your tongue starts middle, goes forward, then goes back to end near the rear of your mouth.
Merriam-Webster says Tye-row
Which are all basically the same thing, and how I expect people have mostly been pronouncing Tyro all along.
So gaining financial independence for your*self* (emphasis intended) somehow isn't selfish? What do you think the word "selfish" means? I suggest you look it up in a dictionary. In fact, here's the definition from Merriam-Webster's.
Also, why do you seem to be ignoring my remarks about how charities simply can't afford to help everyone who needs help, which is why the government needs to be involved? Ignoring that doesn't make it untrue, you know.
I didn't rewrite anything. I copied the definition verbatim from a google search for "define extortion". I just didn't use the same dictionary as you. A law dictionary is obviously going to focus on the legal definition of a word, which might not be the same as another dictionary that is not focused on legal definitions.
The Websters definition: the act or practice of extorting especially money or other property; especially : the offense committed by an official engaging in such practice
I'm not sure why you jump straight to accusations of intellectual dishonesty or "trying to win an argument". I was just trying to have a conversation, not an argument.
There are two definitions of factoid. One is the one you said, something that's fact-ish (thus not necessarily true, kind of like how 'humanoid' is human-ish). The other is 'an insignificant or trivial fact' or 'a briefly stated and usually trivial fact'. So I believe OP used it correctly.
I only learned what Tyro meant like a month ago when somebody posted it. Fun to see it's not only a real word, but one that is actually used.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and fun fact, it's pronounced "tee-row" not "tie-row" like I imagine a lot of us pronounce (myself included even knowing the right answer). Yet another Final Fantasy protagonist with an easy-to-mispronounce name.
Yeah this behavior is completely unhealthy, but understandable if you've actually been around someone who's lost a child. In my eye's, it is a child. Since you're being extremely technical here and nitpicky, let me just remind you...
>"a young human being below the age of puberty or below the legal age of majority."
>"an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception."
Does a fetus not meet the critea for the defnition of a child? A fetus can be a child, by that definition~~. A child cannot be a fetus.~~ It's like saying a square isn't a rectangle.
Upon further inspection... here fucking downvote this... from miriam webster. Specifically states UNBORN OR RECENTLY BORN:
So stop being smartasses and downvoting people when you are the one's who are wrong.
Again, FOURTH DEFINITION SPECIFICALLY SAYS A HUMAN FETUS. Human. fucking. fetus. Right there buddy.
Apologies for the fucked up title.
I do not by any means believe this crap. But it's not just the gateway pundit and breitfart anymore.
Even before the rise of alt-right media Fox has been flirting with conspiracy theories that drove the militant movement. Now the more brazen of the Fox crew, Fox and Friends and Lou Dobbs are entertaining conspiracy theorists touting a tale that finally gives these people a boogeyman to lash out against. They're precipitating violence against demonstrators (promoting this Obama's "army" bullshit), and prepping the troops to launch a coup d'etat in response to what will be painted as a coup d'etat when Trump gets what's coming to him.
The interesting thing about "people" is that they are not all the same. A policy that is neutral on its face may differentially impact groups of people that share certain characteristics. Should we not at least try to understand what those differential impacts are before we dismiss them? It's one thing to say we shouldn't care, it's quite another to say we shouldn't even know.
Singular "they" isn't incorrect anymore. It still hurts my j-school roots to use it, but for the gender non-binary kids I know, it's the preferred pronoun, and I'm getting better at it. [link]
> The only time it didn't accept a search was what I told it to search for "Gobbly goop" as a joke.
That's probably because the word is "gobbledygook".
I'm not an expert, but I do know that history loves to repeat itself. How well did isolationist policies serve America in the past (think WWII)? How about aggressive manipulation of war torn regions (think Arab Spring)? How well has fascism turned out for countries that practiced it?
I'm not throwing the latter term around like a random insult either. Merriam-Webster defines fascism as follows:
> a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
That's a pretty good representation of Trump's platform, isn't it? Even though many refused to see him as this extreme during the election, the last ten days have shown exactly how apt that definition is.
History is a great teacher, and we are going to see the events of the last century repeated again, it seems. I don't need to be an expert in foreign policy at all, because the past has already shown where the path America is on will end up.
I know the name might be confusing given the presence of Auras, but this is the only word I could find in English which conveys the exact meaning of "turning into gold": [link]

So according to you, there are only suburbs in America? We don't have these endless spreads of houses in many other places... In Europe for instance, suburbs are almost always apartment blocks.

For one, not all Palestinians are Muslim. Another thing I think would be a start is to recognize that those of Jewish ancestors are not the only semites, the Palestinians and arabs are also semites.
Definition of Semite
a : a member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia including the Akkadians, Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Arabs
b : a descendant of these peoples
: a member of a modern people speaking a Semitic language
Being against palisti Ian's and arabs is equally as anti(against)Semitic as being against those who are Jewish.
Being pro or anti Zionism would be a more accuate way to refer to positions.
> Not a sponge.
> Sponge is a sea creature
> Scouring pad with super scrubber is made from plastics and other man made synthetics.
Oooo ooo... are we attempting pedantry?
"A piece of a soft, light, porous absorbent substance originally consisting of the fibrous skeleton of an aquatic invertebrate but <strong>now usually made of synthetic material, used for washing and cleaning.</strong>"
MMm... so fun.
Clearly you should look up the definition of racism before using the world. Let me help you with that.
Who blew up the Oklahoma Federal Building? Angry White guys.
Who shot up a Mosque in Quebec? Angry White guy.
Who killed all those kids in Columbine? Angry White guys.
Who shot up that church in South Carolina? Angry White guy.
Who admitted murdering 49 women and has ties to as many as 71? Angry White guy.
Who shot people at SPU? Angry White guy.
Who tried to assassinate Trump and Reagan? Angry White guys.
Starting to see a trend here...
Edit: fixed a typo.
Not sure if this is sarcasm. If it is, thank you for helping me make my point ;)
Edit: I would enjoy reading your alternate viewpoint on this issue
"Checks and balances" is the phrase you're looking for. This country, unlike Putin's Russia, and like all true democracies, has check and balances.
The legislative branch makes the laws and the judicial branch adjudicates them. Trump's order violates the law of the land, and as he's not a god-emperor, when he reaches too far he gets his wrist slapped.
But that may not even happen. It's just being reviewed.
Now that the word has been established for you, it WOULD have been treasonous if the order were not reviewed.
Counterfeiting isn't copying, it's imitating with intent to deceive. (deceiving is bad right?)

Edit:(response to edit):
This cartoon is indeed childish and it overlooks nuances but it is mostly correct. (the fun part is subjective)
If we recognize that copying isn't theft, I think a more nuanced discussion about the morality, law and consequences of digital copying is possible. Calling copying(piracy) theft makes it seem universally bad, which isn't true at all.
Because it's called cosplay. Maybe learn how the word is defined.
> the activity or practice of dressing up as a character from a work of fiction (such as a comic book, video game, or television show)
*noun crit·ic \ˈkri-tik*
a : one who expresses a reasoned opinion on any matter especially involving a judgment of its value, truth, righteousness, beauty, or technique
b : one who engages often professionally in the analysis, evaluation, or appreciation of works of art or artistic performances
: one given to harsh or captious judgment
I don't know where you got the 'rebel against the government' idea.
> Did you see him complaining about being named person of the year instead of man of the year?
Does the "man" mean "adult male" or "individual/person"? ( [link] ) This is the sort of point about nuanced meaning and how it could be argued its not sexist.
Not exactly familiar with the pronunciation key being used there, but isn't that pronounced the same as tie-row?
Tie-row is how Merriam-Webster seems to pronounce it.
You mind if I say I hate you? :)
Apparently you retards read this wrong. I was sarcastic - aka - sarky if your english.
I don't hate him per-say. I'm angry that I'll never have the same chances he has to see a F1 race.
It's sarcasm. Do you know sarcasm? Should I look it up for you? [link]
>What am I basing this on? You want sources? Am I going to have to site my work in MLA here to satisfy your academic standards? Please.
One statistic to back yourself up would probably be a good idea.
>I'm not against women getting careers or equal rights. I'm not pushing legally coerced marriage. That's why first wave feminism is acceptable. Women worked and lived without men before even that existed.
Equal Pay Act of 1963 wasn't until the second wave of feminism. Just because they could physically get a job doesn't mean they were treated equally.
>Family, as in the gender-specialized attachment of a pair of people that physiologically creates children
>Past first wave, the focus has been not on legal rights but on social empowerment, which is egalitarian social engineering and doesn't work.
Again, no. Equal Pay Act of 1963 as proof, yet again. There were very clear legal boundaries for women after the first wave.
Alternate headline: Ryan tries to finance a tax cut for the wealthy by increasing the taxes paid by the middle and working classes
Because cutting taxes on the wealthy is Ryan's raison d'etre.
I have now looked it up, and the first usage of "Murderhobo" was (1) about a decade ago, and (2) a year before anyone ever said "Woke" as in socially-aware.
It's a cute & evocative phrase, imho.
Or, we use the far more accurate Merriam Webster
>a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
In which Fascism can be construed as Right-Wing or Liberal, depending on the situation
Firstly, it's en masse, not "on mass". Secondly, what exactly is your argument, apart from pointing out that some people are more emotional than rational?
That's because they are contrations. I'm sure all three have been used in literature and conversation for ages now. There's no excuse for Merriam-Webster or Oxford to not have adopted them yet. "Ain't" has been.
> I think the term you're looking for is "blinders" but I get your point.
Less common usage, but blinkers is considered a synomym for blinders.
The real question is why we still don't have reversible battery holders in common usage? I've seen a number of perfectly practical prototypes and patents announced over the years. Hell, here's one from Microsoft, and the use case sited is specifically for their wireless mice, and specifically to reduce the number of stupid help desk calls. I still have yet to see one in the wild.
According to mw, it doesn't necessarily have to Be ambiguity or omission , it could just be a means of escape which fits here
Edit: idk why people get so up in arms with things like this. It's like getting mad at someone for using decimate when more than 10percent of something was destroyed. Words can change and adapt especially when used in a casual setting
There is a precedence for calling it "almond milk" since at least the 1300s.
You're right, words matter, their meaning matters, names matter. And that's why the dairy industry in this case is wrong.
Definition of milk
a : a fluid secreted by the mammary glands of females for the nourishment of their young; especially : cow's milk used as a food by humans
b : lactation <cows in milk>
