    used to shut people up, I think.

    Of course, they think they're always being shut up. For some reason, people who dominate discourse often do.

    I'm against buzzwords, buzz-phrases, and buzz-memes that automatically shut down conversation. But they'd have to go a long way to get my sympathy on this one. Most particularly since those same people devote a great deal of their time and life to shutting down every political conversation in this country they don't like. Primarily by yelling and spewing vitriol 24/7 at the top of their lungs. Cry me a river, assholes.

    Sure once I was young and impulsive, I wore every conceivable pin. Even went to socialist meetings, learned all the old union hymns. Ah, but I've grown older and wiser. And that's why I'm turning you in.
