A Moment of Political Clarity


If "con" is the opposite of "pro," does that mean that Congress is the opposite of prgress?

I find it amusing that the word politics comes from the Latin root of "poli" meaning "many," and "tics" being blood sucking animals.

Any one else?


Toodles!

Red,
I agree - our government is totally messed up. However, I attribute much of this country's confusion to our English language. (I have two posts back around November 2005 on my blog regarding this) Here are some quotes from my plagerized lists:

16. If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay you to do it?
17. If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?
18. If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?
19. If you are cross-eyed and have dyslexia, can you read all right?
20. Why is bra singular and panties plural?
21. Why do you press harder on the buttons of a remote control when you know the batteries are dead?
22. Why do we put suits in garment bags and garments in a suitcase?
23. How come abbreviated is such a long word?
24. Why do we wash bath towels? Aren't we clean when we use them?
25. Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
26. Why do they call it a TV set when you only have one?

No wonder we English-speakers are so misunderstood!

"Since a politician never believes what he says, he is surprised when others believe him."

--Gen. Charles de Gsulle.

Before I scrolled down I was going to use that Twain quote but Wordsmith beat me to it.
