What's in a Name - LOL

What’s in a Name ???

First there was Global Cooling, then Global Warming, now it’s called Climate Change. Seems there was some worry over the fact that the Globe was not actually warming but might be cooling; necessitating a change back to the old name which they thought would make them look foolish so they came up with an easy fix – change the name, now no matter what happens in the Climate it is caused by Humans and will take trillions to fix. Style over substance always sells. Boy are we really gullible.

Just ask the President. Lol

On top of that another (flood) gate just opened and it’s called Climategate.

I Digress: on to another possible name change. The Community organizers dream called ACORN has befallen upon hard times: from James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles Investigative journalism broke by Breitbart on his Big Government site to the Congress defunding ACORN.
Then recently the office of ACORN that was investigated and which caused such a fuss that they did some “house cleaning” and dumped 20,000 or so files into the dumpster out back. Ooops they forgot about “dumpster divers”. Among the documents found was one that talked about ways to deflect the recent criticism. You guessed it - Change the name. There was a lot of talk about name changing but what was curiously lacking was any talk of substantive reform or change of what caused the problem in the first place.


Now we have the US Justice Department helping to find ways around the Congress’ defunding.
I guess there is some part of “defunding” that I didn’t understand. I knew I should of went to law school.

Next if you remember Congress voted for the Stimulus bill to make sure unemployment didn’t get to double digits; well now it has so they are thinking about a second Stimulus – no wait just a minute said Steny Hoyer House Democrat Leader. Here is what he said.

{ "I wouldn't characterize it as a second stimulus," House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday. "I don't want to be as broad as that, I want it to be very targeted on jobs."}

Here is the link to the quote. As you can see the second Stimulus after the first will be hard to swallow.


Gee let’s call it a Jobs bill. O is well and what a joke.

I can go on and on with name changes made to hide the meaning of things; or at least to confuse the issue.

Union backed Democrat, bill to take away employees right to a secret ballot to determine whether they want a Union or not; is called “Employee Free Choice Act”.

The Stimulus, which hasn’t seemed to stimulate anything other than bigger government, being another case in point.

Again the Clean Water Restoration Act has nothing to do with restoring the Clean Water Act. Rather it expands it.

Let us not forget “Net Neutrality” and the “Fairness Doctrine”; these are neither neutral nor fair.
