To govern someone is to override their own wishes; they wants to do X, but government commands them to do Y. Likewise, to enslave someone is to override their own plans; they wants to be an Econ Professor and columnist, but the slave-owner commands him to pick cotton, and gets his friends in government to return him for a whipping, should he manage to escape. Such close similarity of meaning ought to give the one verb an entry in the thesaurus for the other, but I found none, at thesaurus.com . Under "govern," the site shows various words of similar meaning including "call the shots," "hold dominion" and even "tyrannize", but not "enslave." Under "enslave," it shows among others "coerce," "compel" and “subjugate” but not "govern." I wonder why not, but discount any theory suggesting that thesaurus compilers got together to deceive students of the language. Never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity; and here, the error may even be innocent. Everyone is so conditioned by government's propaganda machine to believe that governance is beneficial but slavery is shocking, I'm happy, here to repair the omission.
Your parents governed your growth from a child to an adult, did they enslave you? As with most all words the definition can vary determined by the use. To govern is to oversee a functioning body, not dictate but make sure everyone plays by the rules. To enslave is to is to physically possess a person against their will, but I'm quite sure you truly knew the difference. Without a governing body we'd be degraded to less than an animal. Even animals such a monkeys, lions, ect...live under governance of a social hierarchy, hence dominate male, matriarch, & the phrase"king of the jungle." Without governance this would be a kill at will society & I doubt you are really built to live that life, shit I doubt anybody living is!

The GOP growth and opportunity report
is out today.
Much of it I agree with, and some of it I do not.

One thing is for sure....reform is needed.

At CPAC, The Marriage Fight Is Over

Opponents of gay rights spoke to a nearly empty room, while supporters had a standing room-only crowd.“We cannot be at war with America on issues of fairness, on issues of equality,” conservative Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin says.

GOP Calling For Immigration Reform As Part Of Outreach To Minority Voters

WASHINGTON — The Republican National Committee will formally endorse immigration reform on Monday and outline plans for a $10 million outreach to minority groups – gay voters among them – as part of a multi-step roadmap designed to make the GOP more "welcoming and inclusive" for voters who overwhelmingly supported Democrats in 2012.

Hot entertainment in Bethlehem PA? No St. Patricks Day celebrations there? The streets were filled with merrymakers all over town last night, even the dogs were painted green! Saw a girl all decked out in St. Patricks day gear; with her purse that said Venezuela! It was great! Black people, brown people, young and old and dogs; all united to celebrate St. Patricks Day.
