Euphemisms away: World in which truth is dying species
Hidden away somewhere within the labyrinth of the Pentagon there must be a top secret euphemism department engaged in the invention of the Orwellian surrogate words that have crept surreptitiously into the American English vocabulary and from there translated into many other languages. In my mind I see a unit of studiously serious executives, coffee mugs in their hands and their neckties awry, devising senseless terms for terrible things and used unthinkingly by people today from New York to California, from Maine to Texas. The goal of my imaginary secret unit is to render ugly terms meaningless or to transform them into their opposite. To quote the perceptive Scottish writer, Candia McWilliam, "plain words are always under threat." There are words that don't say what they mean and there are words that say what they don't mean.
Intensified or enhanced interrogation sounds oh so much more genteel than the hideous word TORTURE. Collateral damage goes down quite well instead of the savage bombing and strafing of a funeral procession or a wedding party. Military leaders themselves have come to love the suggestive word "footprints" to indicate the evidence of America's powerful presence throughout the world: "We were here and we leave this little sign with you." A little footprint, maybe a fleet of super bombers or Predator drones.
The point to keep in mind is that the names of things, issues, objects of life change, but the substance of the object itself remains-torture will always be torture, no matter what the gnomes propose and the media parrot.

Another ONE :)
Feminists are concerned that children from an early age are constantly faced with "negative gender stereotypes" in television shows and commercials. The word "negative" in the report is synonymous with the word "traditional". Over time, the ban would be extended to television and advertising. So far it was decided to start with books.
The authors of the report strongly recommend urgent legislative measures in the field of children's literature. In particular, they suggest introducing a policy of "equality of all social sectors." An example of alternative children's literature is a book "King and King" with kissing men on the cover. According to the report, this would help children to learn about the "true sexual diversity of society."

Am I the most incompetent Speaker of the House in U.S. history or what?
I couldn't even get Plan B passed by my minions.
Why did I even give a press conference showboating my fake grandstanding bill when I couldn't get my own caucus to vote for it?
Seriously, who does that?
Me, thats who. There's a reason I have passed the least amount of legislation as House leader in history.
I mean c'mon guys. Even Dennis "Fatz McFattington Child Molest'n Protect'n" Hastert was able to funtion at a 3rd grade level every once in a while.
Seriously, I'm truly am terrible.
Tea Party Nut Jobs, please vote me out as Speaker. I really don't wan't to resign in disgrace next year. At least let me save some face.
Worst Speaker in History

Nonsense. Nothing in Constitution prohibits speech rules in PRIVATE universities. No one is forced to attend Harvard or Princeton. If they don't like the rules they can go to a state school.

Dozens of Mich. Schools Close Amid Threats, Rumors
Dozens of Michigan schools canceled classes for thousands of students to cool off rumored threats of violence and problems related to doomsday scenarios based on the Mayan calendar, officials said Thursday.
Public schools in Genesee and Lapeer counties, neighboring counties north of the Detroit area, started the Christmas break Wednesday night rather than hold classes the rest of the week. Meanwhile, police investigated whether students made false claims about guns at the high school in Grand Blanc, said John Potbury, a spokesman for the Genesee County prosecutor.
