Well, I guess we all finally know where we stand. We shouldn’t be confused any longer. The definition of words such as change, disinformation, mob, transparency, security-threat, healthcare reform, and fiscal responsibility seems pretty clear now. I don’t think we need to wonder any longer what our newly elected government officials (and all their respective unelected czars) mean when they talk about such things.
Here is a quick glossary of terms for your convenience.
Change: A vacuous term that can mean anything the current Administration and its counterparts in the DNC, UAW, ACLU, Moveon.org, and ACORN, et al. want it to mean: A subjective concept without any immutable or concrete definition that can be wielded to the advantage of political power, personal whim or populace propaganda: A very efficient weapon in the hands of a demagogue or tyrant especially when used in cooperation with a complicit media. For historical examples see Mao, Pol Pot, Stalin, Mussolini, Castro, Chavez, Robespierre, and Hitler.
Angry Mob: Any group of people that disagrees with the meaningless manipulation of the word “change” as exercised by those in power (see above). In other words, a mob is any subset of the American population comprised of people who challenge the political, social, and cultural Elites of the Beltway or the Ivy Tower on matters such as socialized healthcare, a nationalized auto industry, the bankrupting of our economy, the self-refuting nature of intolerant tolerance, the unconstitutionality of hate-crimes legislation, the intellectual lunacy of “green” economics, and all other things promulgated by the pedantic ponderings (or is that panderings?) of Al Gore.
Shrill Voice: Any voice of opposition to the message and mantra of the progressive Left. For example when Miss
Disinformation: A blog, news article, op-ed, speech, commercial, sermon, or any other form of human communication that runs contrary to the ideology of the
Transparency: The White House’s plan to “see through” the protective wall of free speech as defined in the First Amendment and, thus, to collect a list of all the pesky purveyors of such “disinformation.” This can be otherwise defined as a government attempt to “see, search and seize” all names of all detractors who dare to disagree with the designs and demands of the Democrats and their newly elected Excelsis Deo.
Security Threat: All of those “right wing extremists” who believe in securing our national boarders, fighting for our national sovereignty (i.e. veterans), defending the lives of the unborn, protecting the dignity of the infirmed, preserving traditional standards of sexual morality, and upholding the rule of law as defined by the Constitution (See Janet Napolitano and the Department of Homeland Security for more detail on this matter).
Healthcare Reform: Taking a healthcare system that by virtue of its reputation for quality draws patients from around the world to its doctors and hospitals and discarding this system in favor of the broken model that such patients seek to avoid in their own respective countries. It is important to remember that this reform must be “managed” by an anti-choice, pro-rationing oligarchy or said system would quickly collapse under the weight of financial insolvency.
Fiscal Responsibility: Any and all budgeting, taxing and spending as advocated and practiced by the present Administration. The antithesis is, by definition, any and all actions taken by “extremists” (see above) who seek to restrict the
Fishy: Well, alas, I am at loss and frankly confused. The Orwellian fog of today’s news has my head spinning. I guess I will simply offer the following quote from the official web page for the
Since we can't keep track of all of [the disinformation] here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
