    Default Notice how the names change...

    I've noticed how names of policies change...

    First, Illegal immigrants - nope, they are illegal aliens...they are not entering this country legally so they are not immigrants. They are criminals because they are breaking our immigration laws.

    Then, there is no longer a War on Terror but for the life of me I can't remember the new politically correct verbage...

    Now, just this week when it is realized that it won't fly...Instead of Obamacare/health care reform it is suddenly Health Insurance Reform...

    Does the title really change the agenda for the voter? Are we really so easily mislead when verbage changes...???
    When it quits being fun...we retire!

    Historically, my favorite name change is the Department of War being changed to the Department or Defense.

    Prior to 1948, there was a Dept of the Navy and a Dept of War (Army). They created the Air Force (Dept of..) and rolled all three in the the Dept of Defense. Makes perfect sense to me.

    But you're overlooking a favorite term of the Kool-aid-drinking apologists; "Undocumented workers". You know, just like a drug dealer is an undocumented pharmacist?

    And of course they're all "workers", right?

    Politically correct regards,

    When I was in the army, Uncle Sam classified me as an "Obligate Volunteer"! How's that for an oxymoron? Only the gov't could come up with such a name.
