It's working Ron, I just meant to point out the fact that there is a lot more work to do.

We're not getting out of Afghanistan and Iraq, and leave Paki's nukes for the Taliban to unlease on Isreal or any where else in the world. Sorry if I didn't explain myself thoroughly . I've lost a neighbor in Iraq on his second tour and have another in Iraq on his second. God bless our soldiers and God bless the USA.
I just don't think enough people are reading the news to what is really happening over there. The Taliban are just regrouping to hit us again no matter where we are at. Maybe we need another wake up call!

I'd like to do away with "harmonize" and "transparent" when referring to government regulations.
We're harmonizing with the UN, and it may be transparent, but it is unintelligible.

It appears a bunch of word-nerds have a lot of free time. Maybe they should help teach the hispanics infiltrating this country the English language.

I second that!!! It sounds like it comes from individuals with a limited vocabulary...but then again look at who uses it....

Let's get rid of "Bling-Bling"
