    I understand that most folk put it the so called right way, but I think that y'all just looks wrong. It's ugly, hasty if you will. Ya'll fits the word, more laid back, and comfortable.

    It is not a matter of what looks right, or what sounds right, as it is a matter of English grammar.

    Yours is on par with these newly conjugated words of mine.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I suppose you could do, that's your problem, not mine. I thought you were a liberal, ya know, tolerance and diversity... guess that just if I agree with you eh?

    Without a doubt I believe in diversity, and tolerance thereof, but I am a grammar Nazi--from hell and such.

    Wait... I thought this was the gravest threat ever... three days of good news in the stock Market and it's all smiles?

    I dunno bout ya'll, but this is just... appalling.
    Well he did go on a four day vacation after the bill was passed ( so fast it was not even read). How critical could the situation be?
    Thank you

    It's an articulate teleprompter reading ability.

    Even in the early episodes of the "West Wing" (circa 1999) the President used a teleprompter. This is not news, and it makes you look nothing more than a fool if you are going to press this issue.

    I don't know. I have a lot more respect for a person who writes their own speech or at least studies it extensively beforehand. The way he reads from the teleprompters and never looks at the audience is almost disconcerting. When he's not looking at the teleprompter, we're looking up his nose and his use of hoity-toity language makes him look even more like a snob, at least in my eyes. I've also yet to see a speech which exudes passion. It all just seems so... scripted.
