  •  Scoring political points? (4+ / 0-)

    They may think that's what they're doing, but it's not how it comes off in the real world: you know, the one where Democrats just kicked Republicans' asses in the election. All they're really doing is making themselves look effete, petulant, and superannuated. Keep at it, you paragons! You soon-be-gones!

    The GOP can't win on ideas. They can only win by lying, cheating, and stealing. So they do.

        I used to read a lot and make sure I learned the words that I didn't know. Never had a lot of use for a thesaurus. Love language.

        •  I had the same "problem." (0+ / 0-)

          I read "The Complete Sherlock Holmes" - a two volume set. Usually with a dictionary on my lap to help. I learned some fancy words and began dropping them into conversation.

          Problem was, I rarely had conversations with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

          Speaking of words, I have the same last name as you. I think it's a strictly USA spelling.  I always thought it was from Hessian Schneiders who stayed after the Revolutionary War and tried to conceal their Germanity.  

          But, I mean, come on, Snyder's Pretzels? Totally German.
