Word of the Week

For my readers under the age of 5, I apologize profusely for not putting out last week's word. I'm sure this put a damper on the pre-school playground conversation. In any case I have an excellent word this week. I decided that it would be the word after watching Obama on Leno. This week's word is:


Here are some sentences that contain codswallop:

"But I think the most important thing that we can do is make sure that we put in a bunch of financial regulatory mechanisms to prevent companies like an AIG holding the rest of us hostage..." (this is a nice was of saying socialism)

"The change I'd like to see in terms of tax policy is that we have a system, going back to where we were back in the 1990s, where you and I who are doing pretty well pay a little bit more to pay for health care, to pay for energy, to make sure that kids can go to college who aren't as fortunate as our -- as my kids might be." (like the AMT maybe...grrrr)

"Most of the stuff that got us into trouble was perfectly legal. And that is a sign of how much we've got to change our laws -- right? We were talking earlier about credit cards, and it's legal to charge somebody 30 percent on their credit card, and charge fees and so forth that people don't always know what they're getting into. So the answer is to deal with those laws in a way that gives the average consumer a break." (or PERHAPS the average consumer should wise up their little tuckus so we don't have to have 3.2 trillion laws for the lowest common denominator...I think the movie Idiocracy is coming true)

When you buy a toaster, if it explodes in your face there's a law that says your toasters need to be safe. But when you get a credit card, or you get a mortgage, there's no law on the books that says if that explodes in your face financially, somehow you're going to be protected." (who says there should be...because living life is a risk. It requires education, patience, and an ability to adjust when the Sh*t goes down. It is totally worth it to retain true freedom. We do NOT need the government as our salvation. Go to CHURCH maybe)

To my readers under 5. Do not believe these sleek, suave, sophisticated lines of codswallop. They are all ways that will slowly rob the American people of the ability to think, act, create, and build. By devoiding the country of Christian values....the very values that feed charity, and good to our fellowman...there is a void for the government to step into and be the new "heart" of the country. I think you will find that for all the good to fellow man the current administration wants to achieve they are the very ones removing it.
