NEW MEANINGFUL WORD

New words fascinate me. This one is in Merriam Webster so it's been officialized.

Wise people have said,
Willa Cather, recognized back in 1913 for her novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, said: "Give the people a new word and they think they have a new fact."



Boris Yeltsin, politician,first President of the Russian Federation said: It is especially important to encourage unorthodox thinking when the situation is critical: At such moments every new word and fresh thought is more precious than gold."
It is especially important to encourage unorthodox thinking when the situation is critical: At such moments every new word and fresh thought is more precious than gold. Indeed, people must not be deprived of the right to think their own thoughts. Boris Yeltsin

Perhaps what's most memorable, and important is what this wise man told us:

The New Meaningful Word is nice-sounding, not ugly, obscene, but practical. It's sensible. Yes, this new word could be a good word for the guy who agrees and  accept what the judge rules.

It's also a good word for these guys who, over the past six months have believed, supported, obeyed bull-baloney-blather, and daily phony-baloney pronouncements.

Yes, nowadays, a lot of people are evolving.


Yep. Yessire! They've evolved. They're now "sheeple." 

Am asking quietly -- are you one of them?

Odd! I've never heard of it before. It sounds like a disease that farm animals get.

As my mentor; in spirit, (George Carlin), once eloquently stated, "It sure makes a hell of a fondue!" He was trying to be literal in remembering an Air Force guys' assesment of yellow stuff on a buffet line when told it was rats' blankity blank. I won't say the exact words but it was included in one of his masterpieces known as, (A Place For My Stuff). No. We are not Sheeple. Cows may well be way smarter than we are though and ants have us beat hands down, in my humble opinion. H.G. Wells told me so; or at least that's what I gathered from his story, (Empire Of The Ants).
