Yeah,
can you imagine the horrors,
Big Government picking winners and losers.

Despite the derisive references that continue even today, Al Gore did not claim he "invented" the Internet, nor did he say anything that could reasonably be interpreted that way. The "Al Gore said he 'invented' the Internet" put-downs were misleading, out-of-context distortions of something he said during an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN's "Late Edition" program on 9 March 1999. When asked to describe what distinguished him from his challenger for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey, Gore replied (in part):

During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.

Clearly, although Gore's phrasing might have been a bit clumsy (and perhaps self-serving), he was not claiming that he "invented" the Internet (in the sense of having designed or implemented it), but that he was responsible, in an economic and legislative sense, for fostering the development the technology that we now know as the Internet. To claim that Gore was seriously trying to take credit for the "invention" of the Internet is, frankly, just silly political posturing that arose out of a close presidential campaign. Gore never used the word "invent," and the words "create" and "invent" have distinctly different meanings &mdash; the former is used in the sense of "to bring about" or "to bring into existence" while the latter is generally used to signify the first instance of someone's thinking up or implementing an idea.(To those who say the words "create" and "invent" mean exactly the same thing, we have to ask why, then, the media overwhelmingly and consistently cited Gore as having claimed he "invented" the Internet, even though he never used that word, and transcripts of what he actually said were readily available.)

why dont you know a synonym of create is invent and means the same thing.

now if he had used the word fabricate it could be used as a double edged sword, as in he fabricated the whole story, which I'm sure he did.

or he could claim he fabricated the internet from scratch, as in created or invented.

And he took the initiative in moving other initiatives around. Now I would say he is an initiative fella in doing that but just what did he do; why he left the internet for others to toil on and now has created the warming of the world.


Why no telling where old Al will take us next with his creative and invented mind. Tippy must've seen the handwriting on the wall as did old Bel.

The danger of double-edged swords,
literalists who cut with one edge
should choose their words carefully.

Tell us more of the conspiracies swirling about,
any new falsehoods to spread with fabricated emails.

Have you learned to use the Google yet?

I think it's the synergistic effect of Viagra, Metamucil, and Scotch.

But I haven't seen any studies confirming that - yet.

All this talk about the meaning of words in Hebrew or Greek is meaningless since my KJV is clearly written in English :)
