OmSigDAVID indeed has a hard time reading. Have you seen his grammatical and typographical errors? Not to mention his liberal use of what most educated people consider marginally acceptable abbreviations for text messaging (u, r), but would never employ in any other format, especially with a full keyboard at their disposal.
, to the forum, MsRoseily.
Permit me to introduce myself: I am retired from the practice of law, as a trial attorney.
For many years and decades, in the practice of my profession,
I adhered to paradigmatic spelling, being distracted from its ill-founded logic
(in a minority of instances; most English is already fonetic).
Before computers with spelling check, I corrected my legal secretaries' errors of spelling,
before I signed motion practice or correspondence.
Non-fonetic spelling does violence against sound reasoning
and teaching it to children is endemic, chronic child abuse
(unlike the Spanish, who teach their children ez fonetic spelling).
I wish to atone for my sins against logic, that I committed by following the orthografic paradime,
and I do so by demonstrating ez and faster ways to spell, in hope of dragging down and ending
so much of English as is an atavistic throwback to the Germanic origins of English.
I follow in the footsteps of President Teddy Roosevelt who sought to accomplish this
(beginning with the federal civil service system) while ridicule was heaped upon him
by those who wished to continue with the illogical old method of spelling.
(Roosevelt was stopped by Congress.) I know that in this endeavor, success is inevitable.
Man will tire of useless, unpaid labor of continuing non-fonetic spelling.
As to the paradime of spelling I AM A LIBERAL.
I wish to lead by example.
From the tone of your hostility,
I suspect that u dislike the personal freedom that is safeguarded by the US Constitution,
preferring David Souter 's filosofy of subjective, unlimited government.
My ideological loyalty is to Original Americanism
as set forth in the US Constitution,
as amended per Article 5. I am acutely aware that DOMESTIC JURISDICTION OF GOVERNMENT
and PERSONAL LIBERTY are INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL
In my posts I usually represent the interests of personal liberty and Individualism,
scorning authoritarian collectivism. That motivated my posted objections concerning the speech of David Souter.
U can expect me to continue use of fonetic spelling.
