OTHER EXAMPLES OF "IN OTHER WORDS" THAT KILL | 2005-08-20

The Constitution of the United States says that this country exists to provide "We the People and OUR posterity" with the blessings of liberty.

So we hear this line every day, "IN OTHER WORDS America is all about spreading Democracy around the world."

Take a look at the casualty list in Iraq this week if you want to see what that IN OTHER WORDS has cost us.

America was taken away from the several hundred thousand Indians who were still living in the Stone Age by the wave of Indo-European invaders who had earlier conquered Europe. It is now the richest country on earth and, for all the carping we do, the freest country on earth. We destroyed Communism, which enslaved a third of the human race.

And now comes the fatal slogan, "IN OTHER WORDS America is a Nation of Immigrants."

If I have to explain to you what THAT little IN OTHER WORDS is doing to us, you belong in a retarded home.

Whitakeronline is NOT devoted to "in other words."

I consider words to be vitally important. I have used weapons and I have used words, and the words have been infinitely more important.

No war hero ever made the slightest difference in real human history. Those who used words have MADE real history.
