I certainly can appreciate the fact that you wish everyone "here" to use perfect and proper english. However few subjects have garnered more study and less agreement than that of the language I will call "mountain dialect". The Appalachian dialect has been termed everything from Elizabethian tongue to "hillbilly-speak." More often than not, it has been disparaged and ridiculed as a primitive language produced by ignorance rather than recognized and appreciated as a perfected one primarily rooted in the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic heritage.
Yes we speak the kind of English that Shakespeare, Marlowe, Spenser, Chaucer, Lovelace, and Layomon spoke before us, to which we have added wit, exaggeration, humor, and a twist of the tongue that today is purt nigh gone.
Allen, that is a really great post. You and I have no disagreement regarding any of the points you were making whatsoever. I'm a HUGE fan of dialectal language development, regionally, culturally and historically so as to better reproduce conversation or dialogue in a literary text authentically. I'm so damn fascinated by this stuff that I even picked up a couple of degrees in it many moons ago.

Much of this 'debate' began with Silvercorks making numerous complaints claiming my vernacular writing style is Ebonics, gayenese, libralese, socialist-ese etc. accompanied by demands that I 'speak English' on this forum. It proceeded to descend into an ersatz quasi-academic discussion from there when I was only doing what you suggested; using the beauty of lots of linguistic forms common in America to make my points. I study them because I love to. I use them when I write because I love to do that too.

I'm not backing off my claim. If we are all discussing the validity of 'Hear!' Hear!' vs.'Here! Here!' within the context of it's grammatical root and proper English spelling? I think that's a narrow enough topic to be subject to a 'right or wrong' answer.

Ahm jest shuwah all y'all kin get jiggy wid it? Rahhht?

Everyone has to pay taxes in some form. If you don't you can be prosecuted. The more blatant or defiant, the more likely the IRS will come after you. Federal Government has an unlimited check book so they could bankrupt you while putting you in jail going through the process. I get democrats are all about scoial issues. Blacks, gays and decriminalizing illegal activies and people.
However, with out the finances, there is no social. People have no money. Or they horde. Stockpile and so on.
Now to your point. Yes. Taxation without representation is a crime. It is how and why America started over 200 years ago. Taxing the wealthy, or well off, "just a little more" is robbery because you are taking from someone who earned it or manages their wealth well only to hand it over to someone who hasn't. Entitlements and handouts are single handedly bankrupting America because there is no return on investment. Investing in our military and the like is a return on investment because it is tangible and materials can be resold with depreciation factored in. How do you depreciate a human on unemployment for 99 weeks or welfare? You can't. There is no value.
So, again, entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps wic and so on, yes, help some short term for humanitarian reasons, but those humanitarian reasons only go so far when it comes to OTHER PEOPLES MONEY. Which is what taxes are. OTHER PEOPLES MONEY. How can stand any where in America and act as if those kicking into the pot have no leg to stand on or not in any position to question how their money is being spent? Again, shows your lack of experience in business. Even you have a right to question how your portion is being spent. But you believe in a different ideology that is a "sugar sprinkles and unicorn's" utopia fairy tale where everyone gets along and their is no conflict.
The rest of us will come visit you when we need a break from reality.
So you claim not to be scared of someone holding a gun to your head, yet you are scared of someone taking money out of your bank account?
I see you refuse to stand up for the principles you claim to have.

I think we are represented by our tax dollars. You don't? Then do what the founders did coward.

Here, could these also be correct?
4.
(used to call attention to some person or thing present, or to what the speaker has, offers, brings, or discovers): Here is your paycheck. My friend here knows the circumstances.
interjection
11.
(often used to command attention, give comfort, etc.) now; all right: Here, let me try it. Here, don't cry.
Tsk. No. "Hear! Hear!" has a specific meaning as well as a history to go with it; you can find that exact phrase in Quotable Quotes. It is hardly the same as saying 'Here is your paycheck' or,'Here, take a tissue.' for crying out loud! When you misspell it as 'Here Here!' to convey the implication inherent in the properly spelled phrase? You are just misspelling it.

Still can't come up with a rebuttal to my points?

Actually? When the town criers in the British Isles and early Northeast America needed to garner townsfolks' attention? They'd mount a block in the square, begin ringing a big ole bell while proclaming 'Hear ye! Hear ye!

Didn't you guys take history somewhere down the line?

When anyone makes the declaration that they have the legal "right" to kill me without a trial, indictment or even public hearing, I would be foolish not to question their reason for that declaration. Such action would be and the declaration itself is contrary to the US Constitution. From my perspective, any US citizen who does not question that declaration IS insane. I do not put that kind of trust in any man.
<quoted text>
So did you question them? I do not know when they said this or the context, so I cannot answer to the "whys". Maybe it was in context to a (un)civil uprising like the right wing keeps threatening.
The police can shoot you without a trial also. Depends upon the circumstances.

I have no idea what the topic was now.
But I stand by my statements. Slavery was not a choice and god makes demands that you worship him and him only, which is anti freedom of religion.
It goes against the freedom of choice of religion we enjoy in this free nation called America.
This is why the ten commandments should never be posted by the government.

They keep advertising testosterone supplements for old dudes on TV.Do we really need a bunch of Old dudes running around, with testosterone coming out their ears? When has an abundance of testosterone EVER helped a man think more clearly? Now men can be just as dumb at eighty as they were at fifteen.
Well evolution did not need us to live as long as we wish to live. So we have artificially made products to prolong what nature gave us.
Testosterone is not just for sex. It helps maintain muscle that is needed for optimal health.
I have never used it, but I can see in advanced age someone may need it for a healthy life.

Not sure if the products on TV really boost testosterone though.

TSF, I totally agree with your post. Mike, can't see the forest for the trees. He has bought into everything anyone with a (D) by their name says, including the POTUS and he actually believes them. His downfall will be putting his trust instead of his own well being into the hands of people that don't give two hoots in the wind about him. When the POTUS makes the comment that he can kill citizens of the country at will he has been elected to lead and someone like Mike doesn't give pause to such a remark, you've got to wonder if the guy is playing with a full deck.
Well the POTUS did not actually say it. But we know how your mind twists the facts.

Pro, Mike is a lost cause. If Obama says it, Mike believes it and there's no changing his mind. He puts his trust in Obama who can kill him at anytime, by Obama's own admission, but can't put trust in God. Go figure. He says he doesn't believe in a god, but his posts say differently. Obama is Mike's god.
Again, not by Obama's admission. Check your claims before you spew your lies. Obama is no god, and your god is no god.
