Read your own source again, Ignoramus! I'm done with your stupidity but the key is with the INDEFINITE pronoun, as in there wasn't one.

I am personally tired of Leo claiming that "they" is wrong and stomping on people.

You are free to ignore the conversation but you do not have the right to dictate what can be discussed.

Thank-you.

I hope this puts the use of "they" silliness finally to rest.

Until you have another ego crisis.
Yes, use of "they" is becoming the new standard. It already is used in England and quickly gaining acceptance here as the preferred gender neutral pronoun--with grammar nerds dragging their feet behind.
But, you should already know this.
Source? Nevermind, Roxlo, you're a total joke.

Funny man, you will be hearing a lot of questions when the committee begins. Your problem is you don't want anyone to ask questions because you may not like the answers.
Well, frankly, if the answer comes back, that 3 beaners and a gay israeli are still dead, I've heard all that before and am unsurprised at the result. In fact at this point I'd discuss flying over and shooting them had someone not already done so in response to the movie...

If you were the witch, you'd want it to be over, too. If you were the father that the witch whispered, "We're gonna get the person who made that video.." to, you'd want it to continue.

Yeah. Why all the concern about the VA? Or Benghazi? What's the big deal? People die all the time. Did you know people were dying because of dereliction at the VA? I didn't. Would you have given a shit if you had known? Of course you wouldn't. You don't care what Obama does. He has nothing to do with anything. He's merely an ideal, he's an ethereal model of perfection. He's what your imagination wants him to be, not what he actually is.
By the way a**hole, leave your imbecilic racial comments in the meeting hall. Obama fcks over blacks as well as whites. "America" is his target.
Okay moron let's try this again. You deliberately left the word NOW out of my comment, that completely changes the meaning. This isn't about Obama, its about Vets. Read it again and answer the question Why NOW?:
Why all the concern NOW for a problem that has existed for at least 50 years? Vets as far back as WWII have been complaining about the poor health care provided by the VA. For you right wing morons to show any concern you needed the opportunity to blame Obama. You know why you didn't care until now? Its because most Vets are from the poor and middle class and your wealthy handlers didn't rile you up about it because they didn't give a shit until the could use it as a political football. The good news is that maybe now our Vets will get the care they deserve.

Hey leo, you know I almost feel sorry for these idiots on the right whenever they challenge you. You can tell that they are just dying to find anything desperately searching and invariable they make about 3-4 mistake trying to tell you about something you allegedly did wrong. Kinda strange since baggers are generally wrong about everything. I love it when you put them in their place. You can tell that they are intimidated by a smart woman.

Long before the use of generic he was condemned as sexist, the pronouns they, their, and them were used in educated speech and in all but the most formal writing to refer to indefinite pronouns and to "singular nouns" of general personal reference.

Singular nouns refer to one person, place, thing or idea: man, house, dream, city.

I guess your reading comprehension is no better than your grammar.

But continue to correct on .... Teacher. LOL

I'm not claiming to be a teacher.

It scares me sometimes to realize that the people who are tasked with educating our children are often the most unqualified people to do so.

Obsess on you old simple minded freak. They have a name for old lying fossils like you that obsess over other men. Every day you do the very same thing. How are things at Shady Pines? Now go change your adult diaper.
