It’s just a word, folks. One of … “It may be difficult to say exactly how many words we have in the English Language, but going by Harvard University and Google Research on English Language vocabularies, the English Language has between 1,022,000 and 1,200,000 Words.” (Quoro)

If you’re looking for insult and injury, you can even find it in your breakfast cereal. Or dust bunnies under the bed, or road signs along the highway.

Context. Intent. Those are words, too.

The Democrat used the word ‘token’ correctly with the intent of explaining his understanding of items in a bill and read within the context of his statement, it is used correctly.

The Republican CHOSE to misunderstand the use of the word. Sad when ‘my side’ gets it wrong.

Unless the words are along the lines of ‘I’m gunna kill you!’, words are simply how we convey thought, they are not, in and of themselves, violent or hateful or biased. The context and intent can be what makes them violent, hateful, or biased.

Oh. Why no title? Because I didn’t think Neo would allow me to entitle this piece ARE YOU F’ING KIDDING ME?
