Comment: It is the thought, not the word.

(See in situ)


It is the thought, not the word.

If certain words are outlawed, new words will replace them and come to have equal meaning to the outlawed word.

When I was a kid, we referred to our classmates of lower intelligence and dummies, retards, idiots, and the like. Then it new words were substituted by the kind hearted like special or developmentally disabled; same meaning, same description, same impact. Changing the words did not change anything.

But if you like I have new words to attempt to disguise reality. "Judgmentally challenged", and it can be used to describe this Senator. The old version of the description was "fool".

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
