2007 is off to a good start. Three cheers to Lake Superior State University in my home state of Michigan (though it’s much father north and colder) in Sault (pronounced “Soo”) St. Marie.
As you may know, at the beginning of each year, the school comes up with a List of Banished Words (and phrases) that are publicized throughout the media. They’re chosen based on nominations from around the world and are chosen based on overuse or illogic.
This year, on the list is the phrase “Undocumented Alien,” the politically correct euphemism that much of the Mainstream Media and pro-illegal alien crowd use for what are just plain, law-breaking illegal aliens.
Says witty John Varga of Westfield, New Jersey–who nominated the phrase:
If they haven’t followed the law to get here, they are by definition “illegal.” It’s like saying a drug dealer is an “undocumented pharmacist.”
Amen. And three cheers to Lake Superior State for having the guts to be the politically incorrect school of courage on left-wing academe, by choosing the phrase.
Also chosen, “We’re pregnant,” which I find to be a most annoying phrase spoken by girlie-men and the women who lord over them. Real men do not use that phrase (and don’t get women who use it pregnant, either).
My nomination for next year: “Moderate Muslim“. Reason: In most cases, it’s a stark oxymoron. And probably, “Extremist Muslim,” too. In far too many cases, it’s redundant.
