'Enhanced interrogation' in place of torture 'Person of interest' instead of a suspect in a crime 'Capital punishment' instead of the death penalty 'Detainee' for a prisoner of war (like in Guantanamo Bay) And here's a few more http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples/examples-of-doublespeak.html [/quote]
During his live speech regarding Iraq, the president
referred to the United States as the 'Homeland'. For some reason, every time I hear a politician say that it gives me the creeps, like a flash of foreign armies marching across the plains of Nebraska
I did some looking around, and I guess I'm not the only one. First time I heard it was from Bush, and it's been cropping up a lot more lately.
Does anyone else get a prickling in the back of the neck when you hear it? I'm an American living in the
, not the 'Homeland'!
