Spotted on RABid this morning:

Greed is not a dirty word

Really? From the Houghton-Mifflin Thesaurus:

greed, noun

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.
