Spotted on RABid this morning:
Greed is not a dirty word
Really? From the Houghton-Mifflin Thesaurus:
Excessive desire for more than one needs or deserves: acquisitiveness, avarice, avariciousness, avidity, covetousness, cupidity, graspingness.
I know it’s a right-wing specialty to “newspeak” the English language to their benefit, but this is pretty ridiculous. I seem to remember some bit of advice in the Bible about not coveting your neighbor’s stuff. Hell, greed was explicitly listed as one of Christianity’s seven deadly sins.
