God is dead...

Any mention of God has just been eliminated from the new Democratic platform.  Not that I am a bible thumper by any means, but when they change the language, you KNOW there is an EARTHQUAKE underneath.  Seven mentions in 2004, One mention in 2008, now ZERO, ZIP NADA.  Don't you love marketing?  Words mean something.

Of course this goes back to Friedrich Nietzsche.

To my mind, the ENGLISH Language has been replaced by something else.  Words that are used so often, repeatedly like water torture, especially in an advocacy or political context that they have UTTERLY lost their meaning.  Repeated almost as frequently as someone suffering from Tourette's syndrome.  Examples below.  

Texting is a subject for another day and a whole other item   KWIM?
