From the series: “Will 2012 be a fail year?”
Languages that are living (compared to, say, Latin) are ever changing and evolving. Let’s get real, folks. The meaning of “terrorist” has changed. By now anyone with a nominally functioning brain knows that the new definition of the word is “someone we don’t like or is a threat to the status quo” when used by governments or forces of the status quo. [The pun of the use of Latin here is both intended, and meant to appeal to those with nominally functioning brains]
When Bashir El Assad calls the Syrian people “terrorists” only a fool doesn’t recognize that the meaning of the word is the same as when it is used in connection with the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act).
Fasten your seat-belts, if 2012 isn’t fail it wil, in the words of chaos monger Newt Gingrich, be “wild and woolly”.
