"Ramming it down the throats of the American people".

Especially when it's on the subject of the "gay agenda". :lol:

I think tessa just brings up a good point in general about the power of language in politics. it's all about spin spin spin. Whether that be "death panels," "draconian cuts," "the GOP hates old people," whatever. All sides are guilty of it. And yet that is just how politics and message-crafting works.

The phrases "Secret Muslim" and "Socialist Utopia."
The words "Birth" and "Certificate."

Also, I'm tired of hearing Liberal used like a slur.

"Racist", this word is so over used,cheapened, and used incorrectly most of the time.... it really has no more meaning to me anyway.

I used to have a problem with that. I think being a member of this site has numbed me to its effects. That said, the people who do that should go **** themselves.

"(Obama's) Socialist Agenda." I'm sick if hearing it because it doesn't exist, even if I wish it did.

"The Gay Agenda"

Makes it sound like we are trying to do something bad, instead of just fighting for equality.

It actually means you are out to indoctrinate other people's kids and destroy the institution of marriage.

I might turn straight, it does get tiring going to different elementary schools every morning indoctrinating kids, and riding around throwing water balloons at wedding ceremonies in the afternoon.

"Virtually Identical". I hear this when I watch the UFC and they compare the fighter stats.
