Is a rose still a rose by any other name? The Obama administration doesn’t seem to think so.
In the new tone we no longer have terrorists, but instead “detainees.” I feel safer already. We put their trials on hold. They quickly responded as a group by confessing they attacked us and would do it again. Where’s the thanks?
Now the attorney general tells us some detainees may actually be released inside this country. (In his neighborhood I hope.) Don’t worry. In appreciation they will use only clean, sharp knives to cut our throats, not the rusty, dull ones.
Taking this new language further, our Treasury secretary said that the banks no longer hold toxic assets. They are now “legacy assets.” Makes you want to go out and buy some of that worthless paper. For quite some time new taxes have been redefined as “investments.”
Are the school books being rewritten to teach this new language?
