Absolutely will use purple pen, and green too :-) 

Not sure why ramped up bothers me so much but it does.  Also, what do you call people who use Twitter?  Tweeters?  I thought Twits, but that's not nice in the UK although not sure in US (means a foolish or silly person, which does mesh with what I think of Twitter but that's me).  Twitterers? 

I think we all know what a ramp is..the noun.  Perhaps that's why using it as a verb bugs me; that something to make life easier for the disabled is somehow transitioned into a word for increase, enlarge, extend, lengthen, bolster, and other perfectly good words.  I'm aware that my vocabulary is both colourful and deplorable but I also am careful to observe the nuances of language. 

"The other word" is the one that rhymes with duck?  A much over-used word, true, but also fascinating as the only infix in the English language.  I prefer the Irish "feck" which is so mild it can be used in front of a priest.  Then again, unfeckingbelievable and absofeckinglutely don't carry quite the same impact, do they.

Reminds me of a picture somebody sent me via E-mail about 6 or so years ago but I CANNOT POST it here as it would be considered pornography, but I cracked up laughing when I first saw it.

It's a picture showing the naked rear end of a woman bent over. 

It had one arrow pointing to the woman's private area and labelled t##t.

It had another arrow pointing to the woman's arse and it said s##tter.

Then it had a oblong circle in the area between the two arrows and said that region was Twitter.... between t##t and s##tter! (* ROFLMAO *)

FWIW

Glad you enjoyed it... 

They say a picture says a thousand words, but that picture which I cannot post here said 10,000 words! (* CHUCKLE *)

No, they can’t write decent English, they introduce spelling and grammatical errors and use sloppy writing techniques.

That other word is commonplace among a,younger generation than mine.  I have a friend who is mid-late40s who uses it all the time.  She wants it to be less shocking than it used to be. I have no idea why.

But a degree can get them the job initially.

I guess it depends on what type of degree they're getting... Candice spells it out quite clearly... more (useless) degrees given out than ever... but also... the dumbest group of kids graduating ever to boot!!!

This little lady is smart, does her homework and sees right through all the BS that the democrats dish out... and he puts them in their place too.

Darn, I can’t watch a long video as it’s draining my battery. Can you write a few sentences explaining her position?

Silencing Americans and how the Democrats are using their talk points to keep America from standing up and speak out about what we feel is important.
 
Democrats will create a crisis to force in their radical reforms.
 
Democrats make people fearful to ram through their mask mandates, church closures, vaccine mandates, vaccine passports, and now we're stuck with 2 year olds required to wear masks. 
 
Taking control and freedoms away from Americans.
 
The silent majority need to become the vocal majority. Don't keep quite about it, don't just let things happen. Stand up and voice your concerns!
 
She talks about Nazi Germany, Venezuela, etc. about how a whole society went for and allowed attrocities that negatively affected their own country. And if we don't step up and speak out against things that need to be voiced, America is a doomed country just like Nazi Germany and Venezuela.
 
She talked about the "Me Too" movement and how the liberals used that to take out numerous opponents.
 
She goes on to talk about how the Democrats are attempting to destroy the American family using numerous examples.
 
People were fearful to be called out... fearful to be called racist. But they didn't and now they're facing the results of their silence.
 
Regardless of what is happening in D.C.... it's the local elections that matter most. Run for Board of Education, we need to figure out a way to keep the poison out of our classrooms, ensure that the State Houses are doing everything they can to bring us back on track to clean up these elections. Otherwise, you can say good bye to America.
 
I'm not an extraordinary person, I'm an ordinary person doing extra things right now. And ALL ordinary people should also be doing extra things now to bring our country back.
 
How do we reverse engineer what the Democrats have been doing to our society? When did it start?
 
Everything the left does is out to destroy families. The left starts numerous fires... and we're running around trying to put out each fire... but what's is the common denominator connecting all of these fires together?
 
Gender/non-gender restrooms, a random fire... and now we need non-binary fully inclusion labelled bathrooms... then you have the feminist parties who are screaming about the traditional families and they need to require men to understand how backwards they are... why is feminism becoming so toxic? And it's NOT toxic masculinity... but toxic feminism that is the most troubling. 
 
Then the next fire is aborting fetuses at 9 months in the womb... 
 
What do all theses crazy things... supposedly disconnected things... have in common?
 
The common denominator is "family" and the Democrats are trying to destroy family!!!
 
Stalin and Marxists always attacked the family. The family must be destroyed for the Marxist ideology to work.
 
From kindergarten, kids are being taught to chose their genders, to mutilate their bodies... you can pick your genders in California. And they're pushing for gender reassignment surgery even before they are of age!
 
10 years ago, kids were NOT confused about their gender... but they are today... because they've been taught that in schools. 
 
Feminists are taught that they should not exist to fulfill traditional family roles... that they are better than men... women should do more... more... more... you shouldn't want to have children... etc.
 
And while they're pushing women to act more like men... they're simultaneously pushing men to act more like women. It's bizzar... totally crazy.
 
They display men as toxic masculinity... while simultaneously telling women to man up... to create confsuion.
 
It's only 33 minutes long and my above summary misses quite a few other points she made... thus I recommend that you take 33 minutes and listen to her first hand rather than rely on only a few key pointers I've made because she explains it much better and

She is a successful woman, a minority and has been subjected to many of the things she discusses.  Until I can solve my battery problem, I’m not watching videos.
