Department Of Redundancy Dep't.

A fellow Grammar Nazi types.

Going Forward, This Old Teacher Resists “Going Forward”

At this time in history, however, my concerns for precision in language now seem quaint, even to me. The language-limited Donald Trump is president, emoticons rule, thoughts that require more than 140 characters aren’t likely to be read by more than a few, and those clichés I preached against for so long seem more ubiquitous than ever, as in: “At the end of the day, the bottom line is that we should be careful of the optics and avoid the slippery slopes because it is what it is, and it’s a no-brainer that the American people deserve better than they’re getting from the lamestream media.”
Devolution continues apace. Soon enough you cretinous fucking morons will be incapable of any communication beyond grunting or emoticonning at each other.
