    is specialized jargon, like lawyer-speak and doctor-speak. Such sub-languages are designed to assist those in the know communicate with others in the know, and also to keep out The Other, those who are not deemed sufficiently smart or rich or educated or "in."

    If you take a little bit of time with it, especially finance-speak, it's pretty easy to decode.

    Good diary.

      and I do accept that there are some "intricacies", is helped if the guy at the top says:

      "Don't tell me why this won't work, show me how it can work".

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.
