BG's accurate point got bumped.

Hmmm. Too much starch?

BG's point is accurate, but wow. Nothing like "friendly" in that post.

"Are you actually now complaining that the English language is trying to "push and shove people around"?"

PJ, it's like this. You are the one pushing and shoving people around, using the English language to do it, and telling those who aren't picture-perfect in their usage that they're ignorant.

Most people have been around others who like to major on minors. The more you argue for your points, the more you seem like that type of person.

Maybe I should phrase it like this:

English rules don't hurt people.

People pushing and shoving English rules hurt people.

"What thinking man considers only 1 source for news?"

On this, I must agree with the illustrious BillGarr.

Happy 2013!

No, Veritas. I'm afraid I do "get it," more than I'd like to at times.

I was sincerely trying to understand what you meant in your usage of the word "regale." Really. How you used it isn't a usual way I've seen. Sometimes a person's real motive doesn't come through in a forum like this.

Now as far as your season vs. Superbowl comment/analogy, my team didn't make it this year. And (I know this doesn't seem possible) I don't watch the Superbowls. Or inauguration speeches.

Not my cup of tea.

PJ, would you agree that many people miss the finer points as they express themselves?

How are they to be treated?

Sorry, Veritas. Mind blank.

"Regale" = verb (used without object) 3. to feast. AKA...Feading frenzy from the right(eous) ones.

"The majority of posters on this forum have nothing to regale about."

So the majority of posters on this forum have nothing to feast, or feed in a frenzy, about?

Well, I suppose so.

Did you enjoy the Inauguration, Veritas?

Hold on, PJ. I do agree with your point.

You are right that there is no such word as "alot." It's to be written "a lot."

But nowadays, many, many people miss the finer points as they express themselves.

Perhaps it's a result of texting often, or thinking that proper expression is old-fashioned, or any other reason.

A person who does know better can be charitable with others who slip up, if one wants to.

"The majority of posters on this forum have nothing to regale about."

"Regale" means "to provide with great enjoyment, or entertain."

I don't know if I'm getting what you said, Veritas.

Still a lotta hatred out there for an election loser.

And class envy is still intact after the 2012 election.

"I watched every second of the inauguration, but I'm different than most of the posters here . . . I support America."

Well, all right, PJ. But only because you say so.

I caught the speech itself, online afterwards - I'm not much for parades or spectacle. Not that rhetoric is legally binding or particularly convincing in any way, but I'm hopeful for the next four years. Economy's on the up, wars are being wound down, and the Patriots aren't going to the Super Bowl for at least another season.

"Most republicans were watching moon shiners,pawn stars and honey boo boo.They like watching people getting ripped,ripped off and just plain stupid.It makes them feel smart."

More of that tolerant, compassionate liberal thinking. Right, leftwing?

I didn't take the time to watch the inauguration. Period. Nothing more. Nothing less. No need to read anything into it.

BTW, I didn't watch the two Pres. Bush's inaugurations, or Pres. Clinton's, or any Pres, come to think of it. Just not my cup of tea, that's all.

And leftwing? I didn't say "my cup of moonshine" on purpose, just for you.

I would guess most Republicans were enjoying a day off from work doing other things. Unlike most Democrats, which just had another day in front of the TV collecting assistance from the Government.

So I am guessing that the above respondents are Republicans and are still holding a grudge that their candidate did not get elected. The POTUS has earned the respect of the citizens of this country, whether or not you agree with his views.
