    the names and the faces change, otherwise nothing much change, same dictatorship/dear Leader, same Congress, same Elites. life goes on. screwing the poor and middle class continues. under the R or D label

    To a dictator – “the people have spoken” does not compute

    I guess a lot of us have now joined GT on vacay.

    That’s right, every country should have the right to the dictator of their choice…until we decide they want another.

    And I suppose what the Koch brothers, et. al., are doing is just for show?

    Perhaps that new dictator is from the same ethnic group as the people, so that’s why he get’s a free pass.

    Dude, 4 grammar mistake in a post 28 words long? If English really is your first language, and if you REALLY are an American, where did you go to school? The President, phony or not, is way better educated than you are.

    @Lorenzo

    Try “4 grammar mistakes.”

    I spot only two actual mistakes in that post, and yet the writer is getting a lot of flak. As a long-time editor and proofer, I’d say two is not too bad. It’s devilishly difficult for even those of us who love grammar, spelling, and punctuation to get everything exactly right, especially on Web sites (yes, “Web sites” is correct!) that seem designed to make mistakes for you.

    Just realized I wrote “long-time” instead of “longtime.” Now THAT’s a furreal mistake!

    perhaps " grammar mistake" was a poor choice, especially since I typo’ed mistake for mistakes.

    1. misuse of “cowardice”

    2. “to to” between cowardice and speak up

    3.“cares not” perhaps not grammar error, but stilted usage

    4.“their” instead of " they’re"

    2 errors, plus a typo, plus a questionable usage.
    I do wonder where the guy is from. He used “our” to suggest he’s an American, but especially that " cares not" suggests a native foreign language speaker.

    I’m with you, but doubt the trolls will even pay attention.

    @ Lorenzo Browncoat
    My point, in both my posts above, is that it’s really hard even for very well-educated people to get every detail right all the time. Many comments here have typos, grammatical errors, misspellings, and poor punctuation. So what? And why pick on SeaFox? Was it really the errors (including the capital “C” on “Country”) that bothered his/her critics, or was it his/her political bias? I’m with Night-Gaunt on this: it’s the discussion that matters, not the technical skills. And if you’re wondering where someone is from, why not ask him? (Or her.) No insults needed.

    P.S. You might want to start your next post with a capital letter on that first word. Or, you might decide that that’s not the real issue, and that it would be a really nice gesture on Annie’s part if she would just let it go already! [:))]
