  1. I begrudgingly respond.

    “If you can’t spell in this day and age with all of the technology that we have what can you do?”
    Spelling tools have not reached the point where they can read the minds of writers. “Acclimation” is a word. It is not detectable as an error of spelling or grammar in the original context by any tool of which I am aware. Further, I’ll bet you are unaware of any such tool. I’d be interested to know of one; it would be fascinating.

    But I doubt reality is your interest. Making a fuss about nothing, is. It allows you to salve your mind against having to consider alternatives to your — I presume — leftist beliefs. Just convince yourself that the other side is stupid and you need not pay attention. The stupidity is in someone who goes off on a word error instead of attempting to provide substantive discourse or rebuttal on any number of other articles in this blog.

    “As my former law professors used to say, ‘Words have meanings, use them properly.'”
    I agree with your law professor.

    “If you don’t have mastery of the English language (which is not an endorsement of xenophobic and racist propositions for Minnesota to adopt an English only law as proposed by our gullible governor), can you claim mastery of anything.”
    Getting a single word incorrect hardly negates the possibility of mastery. No one is infallible. Sometimes we’re tired or in too much of a hurry. S/He who does nothing makes no mistakes. As seems typical, a leftist — I presume — jumps to conclusions to meet his (or her) needs. By the way, I think there should be a hyphen between English and only. As a whole, the sentence is grammatically incorrect.

    You want to talk about mastery? Find the article that shows how state government spending has increased 5x faster than population and inflation. Rebut that. Oh, wait, you can’t. Complain about acclimation instead.

    I could take you to task regarding your stated requirement for mastery of English being related to mastery of any other subject by naming Aristotle, Da Vinci, and countless others who never knew English. You would consider me too literal but I see it as no more so than your foolish diatribe based on a single word.

    Requirements for English are not necessarily xenophobic or racist except in the minds of those who cannot understand or think of any other reasons or who, preferring a particular stance, choose to ignore other possibilities while sticking to distasteful labels.

    “(And what does science have to do with anything. Aren’t Rethuglicans creationists?)”
    What does science have to do with anything? Be serious. For just one example, Cap and Trade legislation is derived from science that shows global warming. No science; no global warming; no Cap and Trade legislation.

    Your name-calling is childish and harms meaningful discourse.

    Some Republicans are creationists and some are not. You are apparently a prejudiced soul who takes comfort in stereotypes.

    “I bet you didn’t even know that there were two words – acclimation and acclamation. I would bet you thought they were the same thing. Acclamation is a commonly used word in government parlance. You should know this. It’s (not its) not hard. . .Or is it?”
    I’m not surprised you’d bet that way. You’d lose. The two words are in my vocabulary. But there you go again, making things up to make yourself feel better. It’s a common thread in leftist philosophy, talking points, and debate. And I know the difference between its and it’s, too, though I appreciate that many people have trouble with those two.

    “Ultimately I must say that I’m impressed my comment even was posted. Kudos to you for your transparency.”
    JS, I’ll take you to lunch if you dare to meet a real Republican. I’ve made this offer to others. One responded by telling me he was told he COULDN’T have lunch with me! Ahh. There’s nothing quite like medieval minions.

    I’d appreciate having illuminating discussion on this blog. I do not consider what we’ve done here to fit that bill. Can you rise to the occasion?

    Apologies to Mike Rolih for polluting his announcement. I’ll not add more.

  2. If you can’t spell in this day and age with all of the technology that we have what can you do? As my former law professors used to say, “Words have meanings, use them properly.” If you don’t have mastery of the English language (which is not an endorsement of xenophobic and racist propositions for Minnesota to adopt an English only law as proposed by our gullible governor), can you claim mastery of anything. If the English on your website can’t be trusted how can we trust your version of history, economics, science, and governance? (And what does science have to do with anything. Aren’t Rethuglicans creationists?) I bet you didn’t even know that there were two words – acclimation and acclamation. I would bet you thought they were the same thing. Acclamation is a commonly used word in government parlance. You should know this. It’s (not its) not hard. . .Or is it?

    Ultimately I must say that I’m impressed my comment even was posted. Kudos to you for your transparency.

  3. Thanks for your thoughtful assistance… and for believing a spelling error is as significant as history, economics, science, and governance.

  4. “On Saturday morning, Mike Rolih was endorsed by acclimation. . .” Ha, ha. You guys are idiots. There is a huge difference between acclImation and acclAmation. Figure it out and change your website. Honestly this is pathetic. And you guys want to run the government. Laughing still.
