Voices in the Conversation of our time, and an alternative to standard feminism.
Let's just make sure that the Tea Party or the Republicans pick an electable candidate. Palin won't cut it. McCain won't cut it. Gingrich won't cut it, either.Time for someone without baggage and an actual plan. Not just another power-hungry politician.
I would like to see Rep.Mike Pence from here in Indiana run for President.It will not happen.But it would be great.
I like Paul Ryan (WI). No idea if he's willing.(I swear I saw Bill O'Reilly in one of those speed montages!)
Paul Ryan says he won't run because he has small children :-( I WISH he would. Super video, that's for sure.I don't feel like we're 'rising' and I sure would like to once again.Thanks for coming by, Susannah xxx
What a crock!BTW, "democrat" is a noun, not an adjective. Ignorance is bliss, I guess.Anyway, thanks for reminding me to vote on Nov 2, 2010. Boxer all the way!
BPB~ yes, you're right. Electable candidate(s) is/are imperative. It'll all shake out in time...IS there anyone w/ no baggage??Fuzz~ I don't know Mike Pence well enough to comment here. Must do a little more research...BetteJo~ Hmmm...more research for me! I'll have to go back & look for Bill O. hmmm...Z~ I sure hope & pray so - the Rising, that is. Thank YOU for coming by ~ & everybody else!Jim, Jim, Jim~ You tickle me...If 'ignorance is bliss', then DENIAL must be, also. On Nov. 2 when you're voting -- know that you won't be alone.And, yes, "Democrat Politician" is a noun, just as "Republican Politician." (funny, the minutia, when one doesn't have anything else...)
And, yes, "Democrat Politician" is a noun, just as "Republican Politician."Where did you learn English? :-)Republic-AN is an adjective. "Politician" is the noun which the adjective is describing. It's elementary English. Likewise, "Democrat" is a noun. A noun does not describe a noun. An adjective describes a noun. Thus the word you want is "Democrat-IC". See, THAT'S an adjective.
Democrat-ic is an adjective that describes a system of government. Republic is a noun which identifies a system of government. Democrat is a noun which identifies a politician of certain ilk. Republican is a noun identifying politicians of another stripe. Oddly Jim, in American English, words like these are nuanced. You have to pay very close attention to context, & not rely on such literal grammatical rigidity. Context tells you that relying on 'conventional wisdom' doesn't fly... Word has it that certain Democrats & Republicans are going to be in a lot of trouble, if they don't heed this very simple lesson. ;)
A Democrat is a member of the Democratic Party. There is no such thing as a "Democrat Party" and there is no such thing as a "Democrat politician" just as there is no such thing as a "Republic politician."We all know that the term "Democrat Party" is a Frank Luntz term used to make the Democratic Party sound like it's not "democratic".
Everyone -- for your reading pleasure, Jim shows us how many times a single hair can be split before it disintegrates...
I'm splitting no hairs. I'm simply calling out the hackery of incorrectly using the word "democrat" as an adjective. I will continue to do so.
