Presumably that last word should be 'aide'.
Yes, Lane seemed to think the incoherence of the proposal was a bug, when in fact, of course, it's a feature. The more vague the proposal, the greater latitude for mischief it allows. Very definitely not funny- in a supposedly First Amendment-protected society, it's downright disgusting. Thomas Jefferson famously said, 'Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.' Apparently, he never imagined the toxic combination of the two that is such a prominent feature of totalitarian societies. Coming soon to a newsroom near you?
' I shot pretty well for my first go-round, but more importantly...' Incorrect usage. You're saying, in effect, 'what is more important', so leave off the -ly.
I care, and she didn't do fine, as she would probably agree herself. Who knows, she may actually want to improve at the craft of writing. Giving prizes just for participation is a liberal action; we should hold ourselves to a higher standard. Jerk is a noun in your case, if that's the word you are referring to. It can also be a verb, but not an adverb.
Big stick with a little carrot, Jon? No, love of my native tongue and wish to see it used well, both because of that love, and because of the tendency of liberals who might be checking out conservative sites to be dismissive of right wing commentators as ignorant hacks. I'd like for them to 'look at the message', not read the first sentence and think, 'she can't even write; what could she possibly tell me?'
Dear Katie, Thank you for being such a staunch advocate for our constitutional republic. Please learn how to write properly in English. 'After meeting world shooting champion and Smith & Wesson Team Captain Julie Golob at the SHOT Show in January, she invited me ....' In your sentence above, the unspoken subject in your first phrase is 'I'. But the stated subject, encountered in the second phrase, is 'she'. This creates confusion, and is poor construction. The sentence should read either 'after I met...' or 'after meeting... I was invited by her'. The first would be preferable; both are better (clearer) than what you wrote. Thanks again for your work on behalf of an America that still bears some resemblance to its founding vision.
Except for the part where Nigel Farage never having been Prime Minister went right over her head. I doubt Mr. Farage has ever had a meeting with Mr. Obama. Either this historian is insane, she was playing some sort of joke, or her 'computer was hacked'. Would have been nice if the article's author were aware enough of international politics to have caught this bizarre error for Town Hall readers.
They'll be running 'Charlie Wilson's War' on another channel.
Even more disgusting than her claim that the founders would support Obamacare is the suggestion that she gives a flying f*** what the founders would have thought. This is the woman who, when asked how an aspect of the healthcare boondoggle comported with the Constitution, replied, 'Are you serious?'
Oh, and big ups to Jonathan Quick as well. Gotta stop the other team from scoring, too.
