Your Say

OK - I don't consider myself a prude and certainly, during the time I spent in the Navy if no other, I heard and said "Fuck" way too much. But even then, there were times and places it simply was not uttered. Around superior officers or ladies or children, for example. And, of course, it was not something we would write or expect to see written. I'm tired of running into "fuck" and its variations.

Steve, Sometimes it is useful to grab someone's attention. This is not a game. The future of our Republic may well be at stake, and right now the patriots are losing way too many battles. If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Have a nice day. Pray for America.

WTF will they do when old Samuel Whittemore ambushes their asses? Locked, loaded, powder dry. Fuck 'em with a semi-auto @ close range: double-tap.

Shouldn't that be whomever? (Cuss words don't bother me - that just indicates a limited vocabulary, but failure to follow grammatical rules indicates either carelessness or ignorance, and that bothers me - especially when I [frequently] do it).

Yeah, "Whomever the fuck they want" definitely has more class.

BillH, if your goin' 2 let whoever punches a few keyboard key git you amped up your goin' to blow you're gasket! Chill. And your real wrong about being able to assess vocab size from fucking words on a damn blog. Language troll be thou not.

Brackets [ ] used incorrectly.

Roger,
Thank you for your response ("Sometimes it is useful to grab someone's attention"). I can see where, at one time, that could be an appropriate reason to use this particular vulgarity. The problem is that it no longer does so. Its use has simply become tedious or, in the parlance of the Southern branch of my family, "common" - which, from their perspective, is even worse than vulgar. At an rate, I appreciate your perspective.

Steve, It's not that common to hear spoken among the crowd that I associate with. Being as I associate with mostly construction types and their spouses and families (almost all gun owners), could it be possible that your friends aren't conservatives? Maybe you should reconsider your circle of friends, if they are prone to using language that you are uncomfortable hearing. Have a blessed day and keep praying for America.
