    It's a verbal tic. That can tic people off.

    I've just realized: Garden Dove's post title is discriminatory toward teachers. Hard to believe.

    ... And, as I was teaching my kids about the three branches of government the other day, I included the part about Congress having the power to declare war. One student (10 years old) asked why the president did it this time......

    You'll have to teach them the word 'loophole'. :rolleyes:

    I find Bush's manner of speech appalling and embarrassing to me, as an American citizen. :eek: The road to his success was paved by silverspoons, how obvious is that? :rolleyes:

    silver spoons!! HA HA HA HA

    As if talking with a silver spoon in your mouth improves grammar, maybe diction.
    Sounds like Demosthenes to me.



    This post contains a pun not a good one but a pun just the same.

    the late (and admirably intelligent) Ann Richards, "he was born with a silver FOOT in his mouth (spoken at a Democratic Convention during Bush's first run for President). :rolleyes:

    I desperately hope that line is original, but *sigh* I probably borrowed it from somewhere.

    How is that old? He was on in the 1990's. So you're not...17? I figured it out. :)

    Wait a minute, before we get started here. I was reading the guidelines and it says not to highjack a thread? Ooops...

    So, I brought this up on the math thread, too.

    So now we've got numbers on the grammar thread and languages on the math thread. And that's a problem, how?

    Well, I ummm...did notice that some others keep wanting to return to the complaint part...and I keep doing my best to ummm...change that. I was looking for fun, that's all. Selfishly, I admit.

    What I like is when it goes all over the place so do what you like on the math thread....:)
