Humpty Dumpty from "Foundations" Website
Lewis Carroll had it right when in Through the Looking Glass he had Humpty Dumpty explain his "control" of words:
`I don't know what you mean by "glory,"' Alice said.Republicans in this country have been good at putting things backwards and inside out. Orwellian Rhetoric becomes the norm.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. `Of course you don't -- till I tell you. I meant "there's a nice knock-down argument for you!"'
`But "glory" doesn't mean "a nice knock-down argument,"' Alice objected.
`When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.'
`The question is,' said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.'
`The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master - - that's all.'

Healthy Forests means cutting down trees.
And now "Justice" Sunday means more intolerance. Means less justice for this nation.
Hey John Kerry, Our nation has President Humpty Dumpty! Our freedom is teetering on that wall and who shall be able to put it all back together again!
