Even Grammar is Racist in Liberal Academia











We tend to assume that liberals and conservatives are natural “enemies” when it comes to the direction of the country – two polarities fighting for very different versions of the future. Free-market capitalists vs. socialists. Republicans vs. Democrats. Small government vs. the welfare state.

But lately, we’re beginning to think that liberals are their own worst enemies. Some prominent left-wingers recognize this from time to time – Bill Maher is a good example. As insufferable as his views are on many issues, he regularly takes time out to bash liberals who make excuses for Islam, rally around idiotic causes, and suppress free speech. If Democrats want to maintain any semblance of power in this country, they would do well to embrace this kind of self-examination.

The alternative – and, judging by what we’ve seen lately, it’s the option most Democrats are choosing – is to flock towards every ludicrous extreme-left position that comes bubbling out of academia. And if you pay attention, you’ll see that those positions are even kookier than you might have dreamed.

Take this new “writing is racist” situation at the University of Washington, Tacoma. Hanging in the university’s writing center is a poster that makes quite a few interesting claims about grammatical correctness and its relation to social oppression:

The writing center works from several important beliefs that are crucial to helping writers write and succeed in a racist society. The racist conditions of our society are not simply a matter of bias or prejudice that some people hold. In fact, most racism, for instance, is not accomplished through intent. Racism is the normal condition of things. Racism is pervasive. It is in the systems, structures, rules, languages, expectations, and guidelines that make up our classes, school, and society. For example, linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent “standard” of English. Language is constantly changing. These two facts make it very difficult to justify placing people in hierarchies or restricting opportunities and privileges because of the way people communicate in particular versions of English.

This isn’t the “Racism Studies Writing Center.” It’s not the “Nation of Islam Writing Center.” It’s just “The Writing Center.” This is the environment in which aspiring writers will learn their craft at the University of Washington, Tacoma.

Nothing more really needs to be said. You can just read that paragraph over and over again until your head explodes.

For a long time, liberals have profited from a strategy of pushing extreme positions that get rejected…but manage to push the window of acceptable positions a little further to the left. But that strategy is beginning to backfire. There comes a point where the insanity is so blatant that the reaction isn’t “Well, I don’t know about that, but I do agree with some parts,” but rather, “This is abject nonsense and I want nothing to do with anyone who buys into it.”

When you try to mainstream views like “racism is the normal condition of things,” you get…

…well, you get the 2016 election.

 


  • Buckeye conservative

    I don’t worry so much about the errors in grammar where punctuation and such are the complaint. What really gets me are the errors in words: I, me; less, fewer; lay, lie; because,since. I guess I’m just hoping the language will survive even though I accept it is an evolving thing. Please don’t be too hard on me for punctuation errors in my post.

  • OldHighlandGuyOne

    I guess I am a racist. I correct peoples grammar, punctuation, spelling, pronunciation, etc., because I want to understand exactly what they are attempting to communicate. For instance, nor and or, are usually used incorrectly. I have even had arguments with people because they cannot see the difference. Also, to and too, drives me nuts. I am still not up on the proper use of to and too, but I am trying.
    Being the grammar police does NOT make one racist. The university writing center is full of it.
    Clear communication is vital therefore the correct use of the English language is vital. Miscommunication can cause wars.
    Now, someone correct me…go ahead.

          • Progressive Republican

            The errors are in bold italics:

            My sins was not being more vigilante

            ‘Sins’ is singular. Use of the word ‘was’ is incorrect after a plural.

            ‘Vigilant’ means keeping careful watch for possible danger or difficulties. ‘Vigilante’ is a self-appointed doer of justice or revenge.

          • Craig Vandertie

            But that is only if you use a word that is not related in definition in any way, vigilante as in someone who takes the law into their own hands and vigilant /ˈvɪdʒɪl(ə)nt /
            ▸ adjective keeping careful watch for possible danger or difficulties:
            the burglar was spotted by vigilant neighbours.
            – DERIVATIVES vigilantly adverb
            – ORIGIN late 15th cent.: from Latin vigilant- ‘keeping awake’, from the verb vigilare, from vigil (see vigil).

            Mental illness really does occur in babies and toddlers. Often it is serious enough that there is almost no chance of the baby ever leading a near normal life.

          • Craig Vandertie

            That is a tragedy far sadder than the circumstances leading up to the 12 Labors of Heracles.

            I often get sad thinking about the tragic death of my beloved fiance, and angry over our pathetic healthcare system.

            Major Eyecare chains have joined the ranks of the DDS profession, finding a way to turn people away that rely on Federal and State Medicare type services, signing agreements with insurance companies that refuse to work in unison with government programs.

            As for mental healthcare it is the revolving door system, do you feel that you are a threat to yourself?, no, then off you go.

          • glorybe2

            Yes, I agree. And sadly none of it has to be. Single payer medical care can be implemented and it works quite well. But, as usual the money interests have contaminated government to such a great degree that the right and decent solutions can not be put in place. So the US ends up with a second rate medical care system that robs the people and results in all of us paying higher taxes.

            jimmy midnight-I do not profess to be anywhere near an expert on the English Language, however, using your post as an example, the current generation, with all this bull crap texting has now created a habit that makes me crazy. You use “R” instead of the word “are”, “2” instead of “too”, “4” instead of “for”. I have seen with my own eye’s that the constant use of these “newly invented abbreviations” has turned many people into total idiots when it comes to correct spelling. As a matter of fact, I have a Family member, who is College educated, that thinks the teaching of writing, penmanship, and spelling in School is a waste of time because “everyone text’s nowadays, so you don’t need to know how to write and your device make any spelling corrections for you so why bother spending time learning these subjects in School”. When I asked this person if you don’t know how to write, how do you write checks to pay your bills, he promptly informed me that he pays his bills are paid electronically. I guess I should have known better than to ask such a stupid question!

          • Blackfoot

            Today the trend taught in school is that the “original” computer is unnecessary and if it becomes obsolete,then that is better for the left leaning masses. Everything you need to know is done for you electronically.Calculators,cell phones with stored data and internet access,computers with data banks readily available has “dumbed down” today’s kids that are on the verge of becoming our politicians and law makers and all of the youngsters in school today.And to add insult to injury schools teachers and administrators with their bloated self importance and all knowing,are teaching our children through “political correctness” that they are inferior and second class citizens in their own country,that the ability to protect themselves and what is theirs is a folly,that they should feel shame for having what their parents earned and passed on to them is,that all of what they have is stolen or comes at the cost of “depriving” others that don’t have.They teach them that laziness is normal,because somehow in their logic,someone else should and will take care of them.

            We can start to make a difference by getting involved in our kid’s schooling. I have met many immigrant parents who keep daily track of what their children are being taught in school; I’ve never met an American born parent who does the same thing. If we want to change the bull sh*t that is being expressed by today’s millennials, then we need to start by taking active control of what our public education system is pounding into our kid’s heads.

            CHUMP may well end up in prison. He is breaking the law daily. His illegal campaign contributions form the former Soviet states were criminal in nature. He received 12.5 million dollars from the former president of the Ukraine. He has tried to obstruct justice by asking the FBI to back off of the Russian investigation. Conspiracy to obstruct justice is a very serious charge and was the lead charge in the impeachment of Richard Nixon.

            We must deal with reality. All nations have been built by depriving other people. The US certainly has been. That is why we have wars. The real wrongs are rarely exposed. There is a new drug that cures HEP-C. The pills that you take for a month cost $84,000 in the US.. Insurance companies will not pay for the drug until you are so sick that you are at deaths door. At that point the treatment is normally useless as HEP-C causes cancer as well as other lethal liver problems. HEP-C is also quite contagious and often spreads to family members or people that you may have had sex with. So failure to get that treatment early on actually murders other people. In essence the insurance companies have formed a death panel and are murdering people under the claim that the medication would cause financial harm to the insurance industry. NOW HERE IS THE SICK PART: Go to India and get the exact same drug at $200. You see the idea of our laws gives drug companies legal powers such as patent rights that should never be allowed. That drug that costs only $200. in India actually makes a profit. That means that American drug companies could do the same and get rid of that $84,000 price tag. But the reality they don’t mind murdering people. Like other businesses as well as governments they are more than willing to deprive others in order to make some money. In our supposed bastion of freedom the reality is that the White House was built by slaves. God may well have quite a bit to say to us one day.

          • Francisco Machado

            Before you judge what constitutes a “profit” consider the drug company’s U.S. overhead, the cost of developing, testing and getting approval of the drug, a process often taking many years with no return on expenditures for the duration of that time – no guarantee of approval – and the possibility that a competing product will come on the market. And most of the research runs into blind alleys – producing no useful pharmaceutical. Without profit, the companies have no assets to pursue other cures. Without a good return on investment, they have no incentive to do research.

          • Mathew Molk

            Frankie,,,,, “the possibility that a competing product will come on the market”

            That drives the sale price down. There is also a saying in real industry (Not big pharma) no guts, no glory. No body pays real industry for failed inventions and products. It comes under the heading of tough shit. Remember the Edsel or Yugo? How ’bout Solendra? Oh forgot, We paid for that boondoggle.

          • AKLady

            Solendra was not a failed industry, the product was simply too late to the market.
            The company is stull in business.

            What has that got to do with anything?

            Trump went through bankruptcy four times.
            His business is still active.

            Solyndra’s owners, Argonaut Ventures I LLC and Madrone Partners LP realized the tax benefits of between $ 875 million and $ 975 million of net operating losses.

          • Retired

            I doubt that Trump went bankrupt 4 times , that certain businesses under his management went bankrupt is there . So why print half truth stories . Who do you think picked up the tab for Solendra ??? Why do you think there is no interest on savings accounts ??? Banks are eating the loses .

          • AKLady

            I suggest that you increase your reading comprehension,
            The interest paid by banks is a function of supply and demand.

          • Retired

            That is right as they lose money it effects the bottom line , But what you are missing is that the Banks are still making big profits and giving big raises and big bonus to the upper tier . It is not millions it is in the billions .

          • Francisco Machado

            “That drives the sale price down” – That’s why free market competition benefits consumers, but a competing product may only cut into sales volume. It may not bring price down. Either way, it reduces revenue to the producer. Patents make it worth the cost of researching new products – if their research and development could instantly be used by anyone, it would be cost prohibitive to undertake it. And a competing product doesn’t imply that the other product failed. I’m sure Chevrolet would like Ford to disappear from the market – but neither of them is selling a “failed product” – ignoring the GM electric car that costs more to make than the retail market will bear, but that brings in the subject of government competition, which is costly to the private sector (as you mentioned about Solyndra). To bring the Volt into a saleable price range, the taxpayers who don’t buy one pay part of the price for those who do. Obamacare is another jewel of government interference in the insurance market, created to solve the problems largely created by prior government interference in the market. As you see, the increased government “help” increased the problems – and the cost.

          • AKLady

            Is that why medications are so much less extensive in other countries?

            All right Blackfoot! This “political correctness” thing has gone too far. President Trump has been fighting it ever since he took office. And I see the ignorance in the online postings on every website I go to. People have strong opinions, but the messages they post are full of grammar and spelling errors(for instance, “there” instead of “their”), and they don’t know how to write a coherent sentence. Our schools don’t teach our kids those kinds of things anymore. They’re too busy telling our kids that the “greedy rich folks” steal from us and that we need to take back what was taken. What about teaching the next generation how to read, communicate, and make rational decisions?

Today biology is deep and very complex. In fact a decent high school biology class probably exceeds what a biology centered college grad needed to deal with to get a college degree back in 1960. Chemistry has now gone so far that it is in the region of gods and hardly approachable by a normal mind. There are also regions of mathematics that could grab your bowels and turn you inside out. So yes, time is taken from subjects showing less importance like cursive writing. I can recall the effort and precision needed to do molar chemistry on a slide rule. Today that slide rule is an unknown object. A good calculator allows the student to advance further into studying exactly what is going on rather than filling three pages with the steps on the slide rule required to keep track of the number of molecules in the mix.

            I think using single character “neo-abbreviations” gets readers 2 slow down and actually read what I have 2 say. I follow formal prose rules more closely in other situations.

            The fact that many people graduate high school in various states of quasi-literacy is a separate problem.

            Try using formal prose rules here; it may become a lifelong habit. Your use of vocabulary shows you to have intelligence; have the courtesy of respecting others here reading your posts.

          • tomsfordcars

            I totally disagree with using what you term “neo-abbreviations”. Spelling words completely, only using abbreviations like “etc.” occasionally has been the practice for generations. It has been accepted as the normal way to teach and write, therefore it should continue today.! The good old Websters has not added any of this stupid texting crap either!

            Don’t forget the fact that computers today, correct everything from spelling to checking grammar. This post I will agree with, today the over use of computers and talking books and slang to save time has taken it’s toll on our wonderful English language. One only has to look at a book from 20 years or 50 years or 100 years ago to see what a mess has been made of our grammar, writing skills and use of the English language has occurred.

            In fact one only has to look at a dictionary to see all the wonderful words available to us and how few are used daily.

          • Leo

            Yes, and most public schools don’t even teach their students to write in script. They only know how to print out the words. Most students would not even know how to use an encyclopedia, much less a dictionary. Thank God I was brought up the old fashioned way. All these kids and teenagers know today is how to google their work. What a shame.

          • Tiger

            Amen and I am so proud of the wonderful teachers all through my school years, including College professors who opened my mind to the world. I remember going to the library and doing research for my papers in grade school and getting sidetracked by the National Geographic magazines. I also remember reading, yes reading the dictionary. I was so amazed by the words and all that we have lost and never use anymore.

            Yes and I raised my children to read, read, read and they are doing the same with their children. They limit cell phone use and they limit computer time and computer is in the family room and only used when mother and dad home.

            What will these people be? But then wasn’t that all part of the One World Order UN Plan 21/2030?

            You know computers, if used correctly are like having the national archives right on a desk in your house. There is literally nothing you can’t look up.

            I always used to say when people bad rapped the use of calculators that then I should take the paper and pencils away from them and they would have to use parchment and a quill pen….or maybe a flat stone and a hammer and chisel.

            And let’s see you do some trigonometry with your pencil and paper and no trig tales. – It’s all in that TI calculator you said the kids shouldn’t use. — Maybe taking the time used for the teaching script and teaching the dreaded law of the cosines or how to figure out Delts/Wye resistor networks would be a bit more productive and give the kids a ton of self esteem.

          • Tiger

            It is true that the computer can be a treasure chest and anything you want to know about can be found. Arguing with Liberals and Trump haters and when O was in office all those years, I really became interested in law, the Constitution etc. In fact when I was growing up all the Founding Fathers were in our studies along with all the documents and the difficulty they had fighting among themselves, concerning our Republic and our Constitution. In fact now with the immigration problems again I have learned so much, our immigration laws are strict, our laws concerning harboring, giving aid and jobs to illegals is a huge no no. I also looked up the laws that our President has at his fingertips to stop the refugees or anyone else he decides and he doesn’t need Congress to do it. It saddens me that when we have a President who wants to secure our borders and keep us safe the courts have done what Thomas Jefferson feared, gone beyond their Constitutional rights and it is disgusting that it worked. Thomas Jefferson feared the courts one day would turn on the people and become the law.

            When I took Algebra and Advanced math we were not allowed to use our computers or our calculators. It wasn’t until we got into Trigonometry was a different ballgame. I surely learned that math is the world’s language without it nothing can be understood.

            As a former professional draftsman back when we used board and T square and a 70 year old engineer, script is the most useless thing that the schools ever taught….Calligraphy would be a better use of time. (Would improve motor dexterity anyway.) —- And the deformed gamma they call a “2” is my pet bitch.

            There is nothing at all wrong with turning in a job application perfectly lettered. “You would call it “Printing” but there is an awful lot right about it. Go grab yourself a copy of “French’s Engineering Drawing” and learn to letter with the single stroke letters shown there and you will be able to write a memo that everybody can read and it’s just as fast as scribbling and there is damn little leeway in the “Right” and Wrong way to form the letters.

            Teaching “cursive” writing makes about as much seance as teaching how to extract cube roots manually. – In other words, none at all.

            The man has a point. The first thing one runs into when real reports are expected in school at about the seventh grade level is the teacher demands that those reports be typed. Imagine a teacher with five classes of thirty students each, expecting a ten page report from those one hundred and fifty kids trying to read the nonsense in script. And oddly that teacher will display a peculiar error when asking for a typed report. There are no typewriters now. We don’t normally just type on a computer. We use all kinds of software and devices for input. If a student is not using electronics to do his school work it is an abnormality these days.

            Some folks seem either to not have, or to not know how to engage, spell checkers. My question for those who think writing and spelling are unimportant is this: what will you do when (not if) the grid goes down, and there are no computers or cell towers for years?

As to the grid going down; such persons will have no way to research and learn the skills the don’t have, but need for basic survival. The point was less about the specific tools, than the attendant lack of knowledge and life skills without them.

            Are they poorly educated or computer smart, enlisting the computer to make sure they are spelling correctly and using proper grammar? Even famous writers have those who correct their transcripts.

            I grew up with a father who made all the family decisions, I did not establish good enough credit to be eligible for a Credit card until I was 53.

            My father never cosigned for me in regards to loan.

            For the past 30-35 years not only have parents cosigned for their teenagers to be approved for certain services they even paid for those services, undeserving of an approved credit, but received it any way.

            Millennials are a perfect example of spoiled rotten children, unless those wet behind the ears, snot nosed punks get a grasp on reality soon the fall of our culture will arrive far sooner than many have predicted.

            Excellent post and to the point and you and I come from the same generation.

            Indeed this in my humble opinion, has been a well executed plot and scheme to take down this country. Not only leaving them illiterate but with a history of their country that is not true. They have done a good job, they being the feminists and Communists.

            Thank God for those home schooled and those in private and other schools. My children were raised like I was and they raise their children the same way.

            Want to tear a country apart use foreigners and take the children and raise them to be drones for the cause. People don’t know why Rome fell, it fell because the empire conquered so many then took care of them. It fell because they put the enemy in their armies to save money and they turned on them. You most likely know that. We are on the road to annihilation of a Republic.

          • Craig Vandertie

            I made some amendments to post since you 1st reviewed if you wish to read over the additional points I made.

          • Craig Vandertie

            There is a term for the Romanians and other people ancient Rome conscripted into their army, I just cannot recall the term.

            Recently I discovered scenes from movies depicting battles between the Roman legions and their enemies, like the scene in Ben Hur where he is down below the deck of a Roman Trireme, shackled like all the other alleged slaves and prisoners rowing the boat.

            Rome did not use slaves, or prisoners to provide rowing locomotion of their ships, there would have been too much of a chance for them to free themselves and overpower the Romans.

          • Tiger

            But they made the mistake of taking care of people not Roman and that is a mistake.

          • Craig Vandertie

            That very well have been part of it, discontent among the Senate, Royal guard, upper class citizens, and non- military, but the Legions were still treated fairly well.

            The main reason of Rome’s downfall was spreading their military too thin, leaving themselves open to invasion, if that had happened during the Punic wars Hannibal would have conquered Rome 500 years earlier and there never would have been an imperial period.

            If prior scenario had occurred Christianity may, or may not have survived.

            Carthaginians were said to have been an off chute, a satellite colony of the Phoenicians, who were also said to be related to the tribes of Canaan, so who knows.

          • Tiger

            Truth you are speaking many Christians don’t know what Rome did, in the end for Christians. In fact Emperor Constantine gave his mother Helena freedom to do as she saw fit in the Holy Lands and thanks to her so many relics were saved and churches built. Odd isn’t it how the world spins on a dime and what could have been almost happened, but due to some events of the times or the times themselves it went another direction.

            Appears the Muslims in the ME have done a good job on the Christians, they have committed a Genocide and the UN had to admit it. I thought the world together said; “Never Again” well it is again.

            You mean those churches that were burnt or knocked down by the evil muslims, evil begets evil and the Quran efficiently perpetuates that evil.

            My answer to why islamic states all have the crescent moon on their flag, that is due to Muhammad’s parents paying homage to the pagan Moon goddess.

            Narcissist, psychopath, sadist appropriately defines the type of person Muhammad was.

          • Tiger

            Well they didn’t get these churches although they did a good job of tearing up and urinating all over the Church of the Nativity, Muslims have taken over so many places in the Holy Lands.

            ISIS has destroyed 25 historical sites and nobody has raved about it or even is stopping them from looting archeological sites in the war zones. Seems most artifacts ending up in Britain on the streets where they sell antiques. But before we went into Iraq the Iraqi people tore up the museums and stole everything they could. I have said for the 25 ancient cities we need to destroy 25 mosques.

            Well ya know Allah was a Moon god popular in the time of Muhammad, he would have known about him and he had a crescent moon on his chest they found a site with statures of him. Muhammad born thousands of years after all major religions already around and civilizations had come and gone, these people are nuts.

            I am with you 100% and did you know that Bush and the Generals considered leveling Mecca and Medina they knew that would stop this crap cause Allah said neither of those places would ever be destroyed. They need leveling for the Christian Genocide and the atrocities and the destruction of 25 ancient antiquities that can never again be replaced. Russia got ISIS out of one of the sites before they could destroy it. Russia also took out their oil tankers and fields near Turkey where Erdogen was buying the oil.

          • Craig Vandertie

            Would completely destroying islam’s 2 most sacred cities actually put an end to them butchering or converting people who were not muslim, or will it merely strengthen their resolve?

            Those people have been in a state of denial to the truth of their belief for 1,400 years, mind control is the primary cause, those who can read Arabic and research the Quran need to used caution, reading certain verses repeatedly may brainwash them as well.

            I was raised Catholic, I am 50% Belgian, as late as the late 1990s 98% of all Belgian nationalists were still Catholic, with the muslim invasion of Europe who knows what that percentage is now.

            Point of informing you of what religion I was raised under, in the very little likelihood that Mr. Trump and Congress would approve levelling Mecca and Medina that Communist Francis would denounce our government’s action, quite possibly the Israeli government would as well, yet look the distruction they caused in Beirut, Lebanon back in the early 1980s and again in 2006 dropping bombs or shooting missles.

            The Zionist nation of Israeli has more than once taken hypocracy to new heights.

            Protocols of the Elders of Zion, world domination is the name of the game for both muslims and at the very least Zionist Jews as well.

            Well what I meant was we all are capable of stinging when we are pushed and that seems the crux of all our problems. That being said Christians hold off until they are pushed too far.

          • Craig Vandertie

            The Israelis certainly have the advanced weapons to eliminate Hamas, but not enough so to be capable of a precision strike.

            The 1 vital point most U.S. citizens do not think about are the Christians in those predominantly islamic nations.

            4 years ago I read an article about some group of Christian Lebanese who in a war to keep from either being killed or to hold onto their Christian beliefs, difficult to do in a land of people whose religion whose foundation is built on hatred.

            My point is that even in the Middle East you cannot indiscriminately target specific cities unless you wish to kill those who hold no hatred towards you.

            But they were all part of the empire and as an empire you need to govern and look out for the concerns of your people.

            The Roman Peninsula just as the Greek Peninsula relied heavily on regions of the mainland with vast flat stretches of fertile soil for the vast majority of their food mainly grain, so people either, tilled, planted, havested and repeated the process or all starved.

            There was also much strife between the ruling families of the empire, when 1 failed to efficiently tend to business another came along and killed them, and then taking over.

            True they had some wild leaders and when they had expanded to such great width and breadth of the world it isn’t easy to keep control. Just as now borders are needed to keep the numbers of people, who need caring for coming into America.

            It is basically the same hamster wheel that civilizations get themselves on and then control is out of control. Along with corruption from within, Revolutions because the mobs you are keeping decide they want to rule, then you have moral corruption and massive sexual permissiveness that leads to diseases, can’t remember the name of the emperor but remember reading the list of sexual diseases he had that were tearing his body apart, on and on seems the cycle never ends.

            Well, Tiger, there doubtless would be more grammatical and way more spelling
            mistakes.

            I think of critiques along those lines, not as mockery, but as encouragement 2 better writing.

            Find that I quite often have to look up spellings anyway. I’m kinda surprised that people so clearly post stuff without a thought 2 proofreading, but whatever suits them will pretty much have to suit me, 2.

All the settings are mechanical, visible, and right in front of me.

            True but my point originally was people who post, do not use right pronunciation or grammar or maybe they don’t spell something correctly, or they use Loose in place of lose doesn’t make them stupid or uneducated. Those whose posts are praised for all of the above being correct, how do we know they didn’t use all those settings to make sure their posts were right on?

            Even the greatest writers have editors. In fact editors are there for that very reason, to make sure all is right. My point was that you can’t judge a person by their spelling, grammar etc but you can judge them by the things they say.

            So exactly who will be excluded? We are entering an era in which human employment is ending. Unless society, by some magical process, manages to acquire intelligence and provide well for the unemployed there will be a quite predictable and stunning suffering for tens of millions of Americans. The ability to speak clearly and be understood will be a huge factor in remaining in any form of employment. Appearance is the next huge item. You can get your last penny that a stunning 20 year old girl will be sought after quite a bit more than an over weight, out of shape 30 year old female or a 40 year old truck driver with bad teeth. And we come to an odd point. In order to have a really free market, that market must not only be free of taxes, laws and regulations but also free of prejudices. The mythology that there has ever been a free market or that any free market will ever exist has been part of mind control of the masses. The profound changes in our beliefs and practices that must take place for us to survive are not being dealt with at all.

            If you are indeed so tremendously victimized by this nation’s horrid exclusionary practices and deprivation just why on Earth are you here?

Set on fire by the recipients of their generous, inclusive ideology. Or perhaps Venezuela, where everyone is equal and none are discriminated against unless you bring into consideration the fact that only the ultra rich elite hierarchy can afford a loaf of bread.

            Sweden is doing much better than the US these days. If I could have full Swedish citizenship and benefits I would be there as fast as humanly possible. In fact the US is now number six in standard of living and we are likely to continue to decline. We are also likely to see an impeachment or arrest of the current not my president. In fact the VP has the power to declare CHUMP mentally unable to govern and take command. Numerous psychiatrists have gone on record as saying that CHUMP is suffering from a serious mental illness. By the way the FBI has taken six White House employees appointed by CHUMP out of the White House as they failed a security check and has recently gone back and taken three more. CHUMP had actually hired nine people known to have criminal, mental health or subversive histories. Many of these people were handling top secret materials. Frankly the US is about to become even more divided and we are in serious danger.

            Good job, here, jimmy m. You could pass a high school writing class! (sarcasm, btw!) As an English teacher, I should demand and expect extra pay for correcting all the text-talk writing that students today try to sneak into formal writing :-/

          • jimmy midnight

            SHOOT!!!! I wouldn’t put text-talk in a paper I was handing in, a letter to the editor of local paper, or essay, perhaps 4 publication, but I think ot’s appropriate in DISQUS strings. Disagree if U must.

          • jimmy midnight

            What an opportunity 4 an English teacher 2 talk about various styles in various spaces. How would U feel about a student who wrote; “She typed, ‘Y DO U insist on advocating 4 the notion there’s only 1 way 2 write prose’?”

          • jimmy midnight

            Well, we have a stylistic disagreement about that. Your all-caps, “NOT,” also violates formal prose rules.

          • Mathew Molk

            As there is no Italic here the use of CAPS has to be substituted.

            I’m going to start using (sic) too. –

            There is NOTHING (sic) wrong with the use of all capital letters for emphasis.

          • sandraleesmith46

            Your thinking is misconstrued. I myself am very, very educated. I have completed 4 years of college. Two years in Medical coding and two years of Medical transcription. you talk about poorly educated? So why are you using the number 2 instead of to? because the number 2 would be spelled “two” which is gramatically incorrect in your sentence. Why are you using the number 4 instead of for? because the spelling of number 4 is also gramatically incorrect.

        The Govt school system graduates too many nitwits. The political correctness paradigm of social progression in school is the root cause of graduating these nitwits.
        The High School diploma is the “participation trophy” of the last 20 years or so.
        Remember the push for the acceptance of Ebonics, which is nothing more than lazy ignorant speech. Case in point: acceptance of the word axe in place of the word ask. Just one example but there are many many more. Ignorance is what it really is.

          Those who think they sound intelligent by using “I” incorrectly instead of “me” need to have their single brain cell replaced.

          Example: “Bob gave the money to Tom and I…”
          No, dimwit, “Bob gave the money TO Tom and ME, not I”. If Tom just gave the money to YOU, would , “Bob gave the money to I”????

If they cant handle that then thats their problem not mine. I will never ever let anyone tell me how ir what to say. They will never trample my free speech.

      Well when posting many don’t pay attention to all the above but it does not mean they, including me are not educated, just type fast and don’t bother to use my computer that has all that I need to correct my spelling along with grammar. So for many who are so irritated by people like me and so quick to praise those who are getting all grammar etc correct, perhaps they are getting it correct using the computer to do their corrections. So who knows who is posting and cheating? Basically using those good contraptions that I mention is cheating. Isn’t it?

      Of course it is obvious that anyone writing an article or something to be presented as a thesis etc needs to be correct in all of the above. There again, with the additions to our computers that make all the corrections for us, if the person depended on their own reserves of proper language and spelling and grammar they might not get published. See what I am saying? You do know about Ghost writers right?

      Therefore seems the only answer is for perfectionists to not mess with posters like me and many others because we surely know there is enough stress in everyday life and would not want to be responsible for adding to yours.

      But I sorta, kinda think that perhaps, maybe, might be that judging a book by it’s cover, comes into play. Enjoy correcting..

      And as far as starting wars… “I hear you 5 by, How me” grab ya’ – SOP on a commo check in a combat zone. Try “Bitter stores 28, yuma block 6 here, firemission, over!” Bad grammar but there are a bunch of GIs that didn’t get killed because we used it.

  • Murphmeister

    A couple of points: what people call racism is generally not racism at all. What is most prevalent among human beings, because it is encoded in our DNA, is tribalism. One of the manfestations of tribalism is culture. Not liking another culture generally has nothing to do with race ( which is itself a fiction perpetuated since the late 16th century ) but of a tribe. All these aspects of tribalism sometimes overlap and sometimes remain distinct. America is an amalgam of many cultures with a dominant American central theme. Most cultures in America become Americanized and Americans, as a tribe, resent those that are recalcitrant. For instance, LaRaza doesn’t make it with 85% of Americans but burritos do. So, it’s not racism, it’s culturism or culturalism.

    The second point is the English language and I could go on for pages, but I would say that there is a standard English language and for a language that is spoken around the globe, that’s says a lot. Educated people in Australia and Texas can speak with one another once they divine each others’ accents. Even more standard is English writing and sentence structure. There are a few differences in grammar and spelling, but they are minimal and unobstructive. While language is constantly changing, a successful language does not transform itself but slowly. The purpose of language is to communicate and standards are accepted to achieve that goal. Hence, two Indians, one who speaks Hindi and the other who speaks Bengali, can transact business with the lingua franca of international business, standard English, and they often do, profitably.

    • headonstraight

      Thank you for that lucid commentary. Indeed, there is such a thing as STANDARD ENGLISH. As in other cultural disciplines, a high degree of standardization of language is essential in order to avoid confusion. One wonders whether the language satraps at the U. of Washington Tacoma would accept student essays couched in Ebonics or submitted in the shorthand language of text messaging. Do the graduates of that institution write their resumes in such elegant variations as these and actually expect to positively impress prospective employers ?

  • Progressive Republican

    For a long time, conservatives have profited from a strategy of pushing extreme positions that get rejected…but manage to push the window of acceptable positions a little further to the right. But that strategy is beginning to backfire. There comes a point where the insanity is so blatant that the reaction isn’t “Well, I don’t know about that, but I do agree with some parts,” but rather, “This is abject nonsense and I want nothing to do with anyone who buys into it.”

    What a load of pseudo intellectual hooey. There is only one thing that liberals have in common – the freedom of individuals – which includes their protection and the nourishment to bring them to their full potential. Even their choice of representative can vary widely as in Clinton v Sanders. Contrast that with Republicans who give freedom to corporations by preference – over individuals – and where individual freedoms are concerned they are unconcerned about how specific freedoms may be dangerous to others.

Who is it that wants higher and higher taxes on the working people so that they may redistribute that tax money to their voters Morty? It’s the Dumb A$$ oc RATS. That reduces the freedom of those taxed by limiting their remaining resources to do what and go where they want. You A$$wipe Liberals want to tax others to provide the housing and nourishment for the lazy, bloodsucking leaches that vote your way. Do a little research, dip$hit, see the corporations who gave loads of cash to Barrack Hussein OHOMO and HELL LIAR y. In case you didn’t know it, corporations and businesses are owned by INDIVIDUALS, who have the responsibility of running them properly and creating a profit for themselves, their families and employees, and their investors.They ARE concerned with the redistributionist policies of the Socialists who use Nazi-like tactics in order to quash their freedoms. Morty, try to look at what you perceive a problem, from both sides, maybe just once. Maybe you won’t expose your leftist prejudice and overall ignorance. Maybe, but probably not.

      • Morton99

        Mr. Miller – I cannot have a sensible discussion with someone like you that posts totally false information which he calls ‘facts’.

        ” Who is it that wants higher and higher taxes on the working people so that they may redistribute that tax money to their voters Morty?”

        The answer is actually the Republican party. Except that they have disguised the taxes as higher costs – which will occur in any version of their Healthcare replacement (so far opaque) bill. The cost reduction that they are proposing is a sort of a la carte menu of health care coverage – which is frankly absurd. No one can project what sort of serious illness they will be faced with even a few months into the future. And putting those with pre-existing conditions into high risk state managed insurance pools – will do little more than attempt to polarize those with real needs from those who like low fees. They will then be given a Hobson’s choice for healthcare – which logically has to be a pale imitation of what is currently available under the ACA. There is a massive amount of bona fide medical information about that on the internet.

        The pain that Democrats will inflict – is to increase the tax contribution of the wealthiest of all Americans. Currently – the bulk of their income is not taxed at allm which is why 5 percent of the USA population owns 40 percent (and growing) of all monetized or monetizable assets.

          Get help for your serious illness, LIBERALISM. Pay your own way, Murty. Allow for ins. sale across state lines, more competition, lower costs. Dlon’t make men pay for mamograms or women pay for viagra. Insurance cos. can run their business better than the leviathan bureaucracy of the federal or state agencies which have no accountability for ineptness and slow work.

        And then there are many other issues like the Keystone pipeline – which provides huge profits to a few, and few jobs – while limiting the liability of pipeline breaks to $ 50 million to the pipeline operator/owner – the rest being picked up by ordinary taxpayers. The true cost of a break can run into billions of dollars as in the Gulf

        • kbmiller

          Do some homework Murky, pipelines are way safer than under water drilling and also trains. Who owns a majority of the trains used to ship the oil by rail. Could it be Warren Buffet, who’s donated $millions to the Dumb A$$ oc RATS. It’s all about payoffs for the Dumb A$$ oc RATS. Lived in Chicago years ago and suffered through the corruption long enough. Could that be why they want the trains? Man, you are one naive B*tch.

          • Morton99

            You totally avoided my objection to pipelines. The fact is that they have a long record of breaks and that the liability limits for the owners should be removed so that tax payers don’t get the bill – which could be astronomical if a water table is polluted.

          • kbmiller

            I agree. Remember the train in Canada that derailed with a flammble payload and burnt the town and lots of people? I don’t remember an oil pipeline causing a disaster like that.

          • Morton99

            Have you forgotten the BP Gulf oil spill so soon ?

          • kbmiller

            Reread 2 posts ago. An hour ago, I mentioned underwater. Do you comprehend well?

          • Morton99

            It was a response to ‘I don’t remember an oil pipeline causing a disaster like that.’ which even BP admits cost it $61.6 billion – US tax payers were lucky that they could prove culpable liability – which is usually not easy – otherwise the whole disaster would have been picked upo by the US taxpayer
            http://fuelfix.com/blog/2016/07/14/bp-estimates-cost-of-2010-gulf-oil-spill-at-61-6-billion/

          • kbmiller

            Thought they had insurance and pd. huge fines.

          • Morton99

            BP was very careless. Even the Gulf disaster plan dealt with walruses, seals and polar bear recuperation. It was a direct copy of the Alaska disaster recovery. They got caught because smart investigators got their documents where they plainly were aware of potential issues and did little or nothing to fix them. Had they been more on top of things and less arrogant about their engineerin g abilities, it could easily be the taxpayers who would have had to, pay most of that 61 billion bill. Again I repeat that legal liabilities are woefully inadequate to deal with disasters caused by pipeline companies – where it is impossible to actually prove complicit negligence.

          • kbmiller

            It’s a complicated world. Efficiency is important. We need cars, buses planes, ships, etc. Nothing and no one is perfect. Accidents will happen. I suggest we leave decisions to those experts in those fields and not have so called know it alls sit on computers and bitch about everything a conservative does, just because they’re so hateful because their crooked candidate lost and the adults are going to repair the damage that the boneheaded, unqualified, incompetent JACKASS left as he limped out of the white house. Private rather than government control is always more efficient, simply because it’s ACCOUNTABLE……. People can get fired for incompetence. Compare the Ice Rink in NYC that Trump built to Git mo, OHOMO Care and everything else Bath House Barry attempted and failed. You must work for some branch of government, which is it? Or are you afraid or embarrassed to tell?

          • Morton99

            You should be careful not to paint all liberals with an imaginary brush. I have two gripes with pipelines – 1) renewable energy is about to compete head on with fossil fuels. Its not just the energy source that is important but also the fact that it is not toxic. 2) Current liability is far too low for pipeline and oil companies.
            As a liberal capitalist I made a great deal of money out of BP’s lack of diligence. My analysis showed that they were never in danger of going out of business so I bought a great deal of their ordinary stock at about 1/3 of its previous value and sold it all at a 200% profit 18 months later.

          • kbmiller

            In a discussion, debate conversation, whatever you call this, one person responds to the others questions. You don’t. You just type whatever Dumb A$$ oc RAT talking point you want and disregard anything asked. WTF. Which branch of government do/did you work for? Or, again, too afraid to tell?

      • Morton99

        Then there is the removal of overdraft protection for ordinary citizens – for example the law that is being changed protected the payer from being hit with huge overdraft fees multiple times if he accidentally paid a number of bills (as when paying bills on line). There was an example of a payer who paid 5 bills totalling less than $100 and got overdraft charges of more than $ 200 – it had become a way to create more revenue with deceptive advertizing. That protection has now been removed.

        Then there is the fact that coal moners may now legally dump sludge in to mountain creeks and rivers – killing the fish and poisoning the water table – one of Trump’s first E/Os.

        • kbmiller

          EVERYONE should play by the rules. Those breaking laws should be punished according to the severity of the offense. Mayor Daley’s nephew killed a kid half his size and got a slap on the wrist. Dumb A$$ oc RAT justice.

    “Racism is the normal condition of things” – ? Discrimination is the normal condition of things. There was a bar near where I went to college – the garbage men hung out there. Literally, municipal garbage men. I used to eat there sometimes – great pork chops, cheap. Several blocks away was a bar where lawyers congregated. Nothing barred garbage men from entering, nor were lawyers excluded from the chop house (an actual term), and race had nothing to do with the “discrimination.” There were also a couple bars where the college crowd congregated: One catered largely to the sports/athletic crowd, the “jocks,” the other to the generic college crowd. More discrimination, naturally. People like to be in the company of other people with whom they have common interests. It is sometimes ethnic – I lived next to an Italian bar, bocci court next to it, wine the principle drink. I was never made to feel unwelcome. Many of the customers spoke to one another in Italian, but spoke English if I were in the discussion – with, of course, a tendency to lapse back into Italian – but with no intent to impose language “discrimination” on me, it was just their customary mode of speaking.

      Racism was brought on by the very people that accuse the people you describe above as racist. A** holes like Obama really stirred it up in America and pushed diversity backwards by many years!

  • Phoebe Isley

    You know I was always taught as a child that to write proper and yes I said “proper” English you should always re-read what you wrote out loud. My grandma taught me that when writing essays. You will catch any repetitiveness or mistakes. The problem today I have noticed with millennials is that they do not know how to speak proper English so there that process goes down the tubes. Also always have a dictionary or thesaurus and now its even easier with having Google, spell check, etc. yet I work with a “youngster” who can’t get the tenses right. How did any of these kids graduate from HS? It’s unbelievable how little emphasis is taught on the English language in schools now. Gosh my education for HS is equivalent to college now a days. We need to buckle down on getting back to the basics in schools and stop with this PC crap. There is a right way and a wrong way and we parents need to really start pushing to getting schools back to where they should be so that these kids will at least know how to read write and speak proper English here in America. Parents that means putting extra effort in speaking with your kids properly as well so that they hear how it should be done properly. Actually I took Spanish in school and with my parents who speak the language as well as English I aced my classes knowing how it should sound as well as reading and writing it down with that same process my grandma taught me.

They are Invaders who come into our country uninvited, unlike Legal Immigrants. But our so called journalist don’t know the difference.

      When Obama was president anyone who disagreed with him was a racist. Now that Trump is president we don’t see that anymore – and we never saw it before Obama either. Anyone who did not vote for Obama ONLY because he is black was a racist. BUT anyone who did vote for him ONLY because he is black was “enlightened” – what a bunch of B.S.

          The irony is that most of the people who voted for him because he is black don’t realize it was – according to Obama’s papers – his white half that qualified him to be president.

    No wonder “graduates” can’t find work. They can’t do anything….certainly can’t think for themselves. Critical thinking and logic don’t appear to be in the curriculum anymore.

  • Jmanjo

    Speaking and writing properly is an admirable goal! Making everyone speak not to offend a few zealous members of a particular race so they can feel superior is not! For instance, if you want to make certain words offensive and expect the world to comply you don’t then write the very offensive words into your music and neighborhood vocabulary! Most people , if not taunted, will clean up their own speech and script. But if you hypocritically throw it back into others faces by breaking your own tenants then the shame is on you!

  • Mike W

    In a lot of cases college education is becoming an oxymoron.

    • Norman

      A college degree means the graduate had the time and money to attend college. It does not mean the graduate learned anything in college.

    The Cult of Liberalism constantly seeks to separate people into different races, sexes, classes, this group, that group, this clique, that tribe etc. Once they peg you into a certain demographic, they treat you like you are mentally and morally inferior, and thus are a victim of the ongoing processes of natural selection. The Liberal Cult treats people of color as if they are not capable of being educated, not capable of actually learning how to read, write, or speak proper American English. Liberal cult(ure) treats people of color as if ghetto gangster ebonic slang rap crap is all they are linguistically capable of. They treat people of color as if jungle robes, slave chains around their necks (alah Mr. T), hoodies, and pants down around their knees are the height of their wardrobe mentality. Liberals are so convinced that people of color are mentally and morally inferior because of their skin color and race, that they think that the only moral thing they can do in their religion, is not to speak of it openly, but rather to just act upon it as if it were their infallible gospel.
    This is why Liberals in their benevolent superiority try to act as if ebonics and pants down around the knees are “Black culture”, as if it has something to do with skin color, race, or genetics of a race, which it does not.
    For example, if you were to take the irreverent Al not too Sharpton, and breed him with Maxine Waters, and then let them raise that child, there is no doubt that child would grow up to be one of the most dishonest, disgusting, corrupt racists that you would never want to meet. But, if you were to take that child away from them at birth and let it be raised by Dr. Ben Carson, Col. Allen West. Mitt Romney, the Dugger family from 18 Kids and Counting, or any one of millions of other mature. honest, intelligent, and hard working human beings, that child would grow up to be a person you would be proud to know or have in your family. You see it has nothing to do with a person skin color, race, or genetics of a race. It has to do with the cult(ure) they are raised in, and their own personal genetics.
    Have any of you ever noticed how 9 times out of 10 when a person of color conducts themselves as a mature, honest, intelligent, hard working, productive adult human being, that Liberals can’t believe it, they think it must be fake, pretend, a put on, a great big act ? The disgusting fact is that Liberals are so convinced in their tiny little racist brains, that only white people can really be human, that they don’t even call it “acting human” anymore, they just call it “acting white”.

  • got my licence

    So having a education is racist. Where dose that put all the libs that claim that they are smarter than the rest? I would guess that by their own standards, they are racist. PS. Does anyone remember when they tried to push that Ebonics BS? The English language is the most accurate means of communication. When we received a Maho cnc milling machine (made in Germany) the instructions for set up and operation were in English.

    Perhaps liberal ‘educators’ are the problem? When their top priorities are pushing the liberal agenda through political correctness and making sure everyone is included and using Socialist propaganda to indoctrinate rather than teaching the basics of reading, writing and mathmatics just doesn’t seem to be contributing to the education of America.

  • America1st

    Has the English department at University of Washington Tacoma reduced teaching positions in recognition and support of eliminating racist teaching of grammar? and passed those savings back to their students with lower tuition fees?

    Didn’t think so. Hypocrites! But then again that’s what the leftists are.
    Hypocrites to the bone.

    Racism is an illusion. It doesn’t exist and never has. People don’t like one another because of moral issues. Immoral people hate people that are more moral than themselves and hate being reminded by example of what they should have become. Moral people don’t like, and naturally resist, people less moral than themselves. Moral people don’t like/resist them because hating them would actually be immoral. Cruel immoral people exploit and control people more weak minded than themselves because they are immoral.

    Marxists have created racism. Marxists promote class, religious and race warfare dividing people into groups to be pitted against each other, seeing themselves as the arbiters and judges as to what should be done with them, as if they were not at all guilty of the very hate they project onto everyone but themselves and their kind.

    People should identify with the moral, wordless, calm, intuitive common sense they were made with, appreciate it and live from it’s constraints and impulses and grow it into a shining, strong moral character, privately in real time, every moment in life as they mature. That is purpose of life, to develop a moral character that can be taken with you when your bones fall apart in the grave.

    “I’m stupid but it’s because you are racist.” What a concept!

  • Jack L. Feasel

    How ridiculous can this be, not using correct grammar, Without using words with their proper function how are we supposed to understand what is being said accurately. Punctuation and correct vocabulary and spelling are vital to our understanding.
    But it is a fact that Liberals love changing the definitions of words to confuse issues, so why is it any surprise that they would call us racist and vilifying those that correct their errors in grammar?
    It is just another idiotic way of trying to hamper free speech and is an Ad Hominem because their argument against an issue is not valid and, or they don’t understand what a specific issue is about, so they will attack the person rather than the issue.
    In either case they are just showing their ignorance.

  • Jim H.

    Oh really! Words actually have minds of their own to notice color. I had no idea words had color. Nor spelling, speech, writing, paragraphs, punctuation, etiquette, etc.

    Oh my, how racist are the non racist Liberals now constantly bringing out the differences of color in people!

    Eubonics spreading like a cancer. If you can’t win we’ll give you a participation trophy. If you can’t spell write it how it sounds to you – that’s ok. If you cannot put a proper sentence together – no problem only a racist would notice. The dumbing down of America continues – knowhaimsayin? College Education is fast becoming an oxymoron.

  • Larry Cowden

    Liberals defined anyone, particularly white males that served our country, honor the Flag, uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights, opposed illegal immigration and the flood of non vetted islamic refugee/terrorists into this country as a “Racist”! And language has nothing to do with it! Therefore, because I am among those that believe as a Republican, conservative and all of the above, I am a “Racist”. Pretty “Deplorable” isn’t it? To disagree with such radical extremist far left IDIOTOLOGY that is destroying our nation we are “Deplorable?” The writing center is all about dumbing down individuals and brain washing them into an accepted “PC” of pure BS!

  • Koja

    I did not read all 117 comments due to time restrictions, but I did not see in the first half any comments regarding “try TO” do something and “try AND” do something. I have seen and heard this travesty in newspaper editorials (!!) and television news reporting (!!), both supposedly intelligent positions. Because it seems that phrasing has become pervasive, does that mean I can go around and try AND do everything???

  • Timothy Toroian

    What’s with this ignorant twit. THERE is a standard, like the very stupid expression,”these ones”. Sound very educated. The word “these” had no need for further description. What is more definite than “these”, it means “no other”. And the expression “as of yet”, three words when just “:yet” is sufficient. Like rap “music”, a system for people who cannot rhyme.

  • April Stoner

    It’s one thing to question a word’s use in relation to the subject, however I’ve seen post re: misspellings but when the intire post is a spelling lesson, it comes across as an opportunity
    To belittle and berate, to me it insinuates that spelling is more important than the content, which
    Lends to people to repeat with frustration the same thing again & again. So being a spell checker
    When it’s not a spelling bee, is just seen as a right fighter over trivial misspellings and the subject
    Is completely ignored. Like it or not, the world is occupied with Humans. The hate division and damage obama has done to our civil society, jobs, national debt, unsafe boarders etc., has eroded
    morals, common sense, civility, most importantly the ability to communicate on an adult level in very serious disagreements, just look at the lack of perfprofessionalism, and acceptance of opposing
    Views, there is no chance of settling anything, or moving past this period in time. So at this point
    In our country, we need to get past the mantality of “GOTCHA” and get back to dignity, and excellence obama has degraded with his agenda of lies, deceit, and his need to degrade America
    And all that has made America number one. So again please avoid the post that are not of you standards of spelling, there are plenty of other sites and posts that may be more to your liking, if spelling is why you read these things.

    • ABO

      The problem really is April, that when attempts to read a comment which includes misspellings, poor grammar and the like, those factors make it very difficult and confusing to follow, and often the reader will not bother to finish reading rather than struggle through the poorly written text. Just sayin’.

  • GuardianFlame

    Interesting that liberals accuse “grammar” as being racist. Perhaps it’s because the majority of liberals are ignorant themselves and have no idea what grammar actually entails? Stupid is as stupid does.

    No wonder the Left is ranting and raving things that mean absolutely nothing but noise. They can’t express themselves period – add emotional confusion and you have gibberish!

    Nice try Libs. Accusing “grammar” of being racist??! You have no idea of what you’re saying because you are illiterate and arrogant. Best to shut up and find a hole to climb in – you are only embarassing yourselves and pushing other Libs to the Sanity Party. Who wants to be associated with a bunch of dunces?

  • glorybe2

    The basics behind the English language include the fact that it should be understood easily by users in any nation or location at any time. That is why English is so successful as a language for business. However, spoken languages are not formal languages and therefore are not precise. An algebraic equation is a formal language as is a chemical formula and although they are difficult and limited in scope they are precisely descriptive. There is every reason to expect an employee to have quality language skills in an English speaking environment.

  • El Dee Bee

    Language may well be nationalist (take an American, an Aussie, a Canadian, and a New Zealander, put them in the same room and watch them try to communicate, for all they all allegedly speak English) but the races of the chosen subjects will have virtually no bearing on the issue. Further, gentlemen and ladies of all races who have grown up in American schools may have regional accents, and speak regional slang, but they all were taught basic, core American English, as were all immigrants who sought citizenship until a few decades ago. It wasn’t white, black, brown, yellow or red English; it was just ENGLISH, because with no common language we also have no NATION, just collections of individuals living in chaos in the same region.

    The fact that it’s the University of Washington says it all. Liberals always let their emotions rule their intellect. This in turn causes them to meltdown over the most ridiculous things.

    The U.S. Census consists of self-reported data.
    That data documents that the “Red” States have the highest percentage of school dropouts.
    Government data documents that “Red” States receive the majority of federal government handouts.
    State and local government data also document that the “Red” states have the highest percentage of families on public assistance.

    With liberal democratic thinking, it has caused them to loose over a thousand seats to republicans in the last eight years. I don’t think their backwards thinking on grammar or any other politically correct words are going to help them. The seats they have left are on a downward spiraling direction which seems to have no end in site.

  • Norman

    This reminds of a news story a few years ago about a black woman English teacher in Mississippi who was trying to get state approval to teach ebonics in high school rather than American English as if ebonics was Mississippi’s official language.

    American high school students do NOT need to be taught how speak ebonics. They need to be taught correct American English so they don’t sound like idiots when they speak. Speaking ebonics rarely helped anyone get a job or advanced in a career in the USA. ( A rare example was when obama would speak ebonics when pandering to black voters.) On the other hand, speaking fluent and intelligent American English, has helped many get hired and advance in their careers.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if high schools drop English classes so that text messaging can be taught instead. (LOL, OMG, WTF, ICU, OU812, BYOB, LMAO, etc.)

  • Kat

    Ebonics should be outlawed. If they can’t speak proper English, they need to be ridiculed at the very least. And White people who think it’s cool to speak in ebonics, should be bitch-slapped.

  • Concerned great grandmother

    Checkout common core. The students are taught not to worry about grammar or spelling. the important thing is that the student understands the subject matter. Many a parent has objected to this. Punctuation, proper construction of a sentence, the difference between a clause and a phrase, and the encouraging of using a dictionary and thesaurus have all been eliminated in these so-called English classes. As long as the students written word is about the subject and shows that the student understand the question or subject of an essay, nothing else matters. Common Core teaches that it does not matter how many words are misspelled, wrong sentence structure, or wrong punctuation. Students are no longer taught how to parse a sentence which leads to good grammar and the understanding of a verb, adverb, subject pronouns, object pronouns, prepositions, verbs and nouns.

    How many times do you her me and (name or my _____). instead of Name and I. Too can mean also or a quantity. That is too much. I want some too. To is usually associated with a verb. Give it to me. We are going to the store. To is usually associated with a verb (action word) . Years ago it was poor grammar to end a sentence with a preposition. For what is this? To which one does this go. Now it is acceptable to say What is this for or Which one does this go to..

  • Concerned great grandmother

    Everything is racists, it seems, since the Obrainless Obama’s were in the White House.. By and large we are not a nation of racial divides. But diversity is making sure we do not accept everyone as human beings no matter what his/her race, religion or ethnic background. is. Difference must be pointed out according to the Obama administration. Small children should be taught that it doesn’t matter what a person’s race, religion or ethnicity is, it is the person him/herself that governs a person’s like or dislike for another person. .

    An example of bullies working on us. They will find any subject to twist to their advantage and beat another person down and make them feel bad even when they have done nothing wrong to deserve that kind of treatment. How many young college student’s will buy into this garbage and feel bad, bullied by others who want to feel superior? People who play these games are the bullies not people who use the words and we need to stand up to them! It’s English, Learn the language you grew up with!!! If you didn’t, well it’s hard learning another language let me help you. Pronoun’s are not racist, their grammar just like in other languages with masculine and famine words, which our language dose not have. It’s too bad ignorant people in the media give this stuff air time, they should turn their diploma’s over on the wall as not to embarrass the college’s the granted them the scraps of TP

  • Jon’s On

    Why is it that the democrats accuse their enemies of being what the democrats actually are. Take racism for instance. The democrat party has been at the fore front of racism since it’s inception. Andrew Jackson, the KKK, the inner city and other racist groups were backed or created by democrats. For some reason they think that if they keep calling someone racist people will believe it. It’s starting to wear thin. People aren’t buying their BS the way they used to. The latest thing is fascism. They are calling their enemies fascists and they keep trying to silence them. It’s funny that they don’t see their own hypocrisy. They are now all about stopping free speech and protesting by any means particularly using violence. The more people see this un-American activity the more they are going to turn against the democrat party. I say they should keep it up. That will make the democrat party irrelevant.
