Doublespeak (n): language constructed to disguise or distort its actual meaning, often resulting in a communication bypass. Doublespeak may take the form of euphemisms (e.g., "downsizing" for layoffs) or deliberate ambiguity.

Ok here's my nomination:

"Global Warming Causes Freezing Weather"

Anybody else have an example? Remember: somewhere, George Orwell is listening. Do him proud.

Earned income tax credit
(you did not earn squat but you get a tax return)

Carbon offset
(offset your money to special interest groups like Gore to make a fortune while bankrupting nations)

Affirmative action
(you are not affirming anything, you are giving privelege to those who have not earned it, best example Obama)

Best ones:

Health care reform
(you are not reforming the system which was created by government establishing entitlement and cost shifting, you are creating more government to mess it up even more)

Immigration reform
(you are not reforming the laws allowing illegals to enter and stay indefinitely, you are giving amnesty and citizenship to those lucky enough to get in under the wire)

See, liberals cannot call things what they really are, because if they did common sense would tell the public that the goals are bad. So only those who can see beyond the weasel words will know better.

The ends (Marxist agenda) justify the means (lies). History repeats itself again and again.

Stet I think you take the lead for best examples... nice!

One thing, tho...
History repeats itself again and again.
To the extent this is true, can we not at least do a semi-accurate prediction of the future?

Here is another good one:

Our investment will do the following...........

Today Obama touts our "investment" in Haiti.

Doesn't an investment give a return along with repayment of the principal?

Investment in schools, gosh that has paid off well here in LA whre 50% drop out and of those who "graduate" only 30% of those can read at the 8th grade level.

Why doesn't Obama call it a "gift from the American People"? Which is what it is, and perfectly appropriate given the situation. Why? Because he is locked into the marxist lying doublespeak.

What about the 3 billion invested in Haiti since '92 which got siphoned into accounts held by the socialist leaders of Haiti?

Are you tired of liberal lies yet? Want the US to look like Haiti? Keep supporting marxist liberals and it won't be long.

keepin' it real

From PJ O'Rourke:

"At the core of modern liberalism is the spoiled child -- miserable, as all spoiled children are; unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic, and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats."

Hmmm.... remind ya of anybody you know???

I have no problem helping those people. But the socialist history speaks for itself, and to the state they are in. I was reading about Aristide. Funny, we never heard about his last trip to exile for all of his issues. Remember when he was tossed out by the military for threatening to murder business leaders, only to be reinstated by Clinton and the US military? At the time, Clinton dismantled the military government (which allowed him to come to power, then tossed him when he called for "necklacing" business leaders).

A marvelous example of liberalism, socialism and leftist policy results. Much like Cuba and Venezuala, who despite their oil wealth are having rolling blackouts, a 50% cut in the value of their currency and more nationalization of industries every day.

The nanny state will not take care of you.

perfect examples Stet. I have a married couple as friends that are originally from Venezuela. They used to go back annually and loved it. They always wanted me and my ex to tag along, but we never did. It was a nice place in the 80's and 90's. Look at how short of time it took for that clown to tear that place down. We really ought to pay attention to what's happening there, because it's about to come here.

Bear with me here.

When I read this, it appears to be an absurd statement....really, could the US fall as low Venezuela? Then I think about the US financial situation 15 years ago...we were on top of the world..the richest nation in the world...the dollar was the world currency...now we are on the edge of ruin. If Obama is not stopped, we will be totally drained.

This is not absurd....it's true and it's scary!!!

90% of life is "showing up"

WILL be??? Brother, we already are- with a baseless currency and overwhelming debt.

It's too bloody bad the great majority of the electorate wasn't paying attention when Obama said very early on:

"The president I studied was NOT Bill Clinton, it was Ronald Reagan."

Not many folks caught the signifigance of that statement. Surprised? Not at all. Slick Willie was not a TRANSFORMATIVE president, in the manner of Reagan.

Obama clearly stated that he wanted to be a Transformative president; transforming America in a major way towards collectivism- just as Reagan did transforming America away from the Jimmy Carter "misery index" paradigm that he followed.

Thus everything breathing moment in Obama's day is focused on his goal, and every action and speech supports it.

Those folks who have not been paying attention are in for some rude awakenings.
