You aught to know who you're quoting and what they stand for.

Native English speakers please stand up and let this "man" know why it's more appropriate to use stand rather than stood.

Are you implying that English isn't my primary language? When I'm watching Dallas lose at FedEx Field this December I want you to do something: lean back, close your eyes, open your mouth, and picture me rolling.

You've demonstrated that English is not your forte on many occasions and so I am left with two impressions of you, a) you're a stupid man or b) English is not your native language. I am also open to the possibility that both a and b are true.

I'm looking forward to the days Dallas loses in both FedEx and in that new Dallas Stadium and as much as I want to picture you rolling (preferably under a bus) I don't know how to picture someone that doesn't exist.

I agree 100%, none of his policies were any secret. Although they were packaged and delivered in a way that was very deceving to the "untrained eye", which IMO describes a large percentage of Obama voters. Once these lemmings begin to absorb the hit in their wallets/purses they will have buyers remorse and 2010 will be 1994 all over again.

Bottom line is the socialists in control of the federal government are making a huge power grab. This tax increase will directly affect those who the left is supposed to "look out for", the elderly, poor, disadvantaged, etc. Will the extra tax hurt the "rich", some, but it will disproportionally affect the poor and middle class.

Again you demonstrate how little you know. I graduated from Randolph-Macon College with a degree in English. I know that's not saying much since most colleges, including mine, are nothing more than expensive Marxist indoctrination camps. They churn out brainwashed dopes like you. So you can say I've a good 12th grade understanding of the only language I care to know. I have given Mandarin Chinese some thought since your Communist allies will be running the world soon.

Your sentence structure implies that the subject is still living. Your thinking of a sentence that is more like this, "Who were the Founding Fathers and what did they stand for?" Homeboy's ideals may still stand, but he's dead.

Here's the link so you can see I didn't make that one up.
Heritage of the Founding Fathers - Welcome

You don't have to use a coma on short sentences if you don't want to. It's usually not done unless the sentence is long and needs to be broken up. It also makes you look pompous in American English. The intention is relevant too.

Again you're wrong. I'll be on the bus going to and from the game. Picture me rolling fool!

You may want to check your sources on this one before you wind up like Johnny Ringo:

Opinion

From the article: In a speech on September 12, 2008 in Dover, New Hampshire, Obama said,
I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.

LOOOL...I have checked my sources, did you watch the video I posted? What plan is he referring to when h says "under my plan?" Context is important and when he says "any" he is specifically referring to taxes directly taken by the feds under his income tax plan. If you want to broaden what he said to invclude taxes thats fine but don't try to make him out to be a liar.

Do they have a money back guarantee policy? If they do you should ask for a refund.

Sentence in question:
"You aught to know who you're quoting and what they stand for."

There are two logical ways to read the sentence above:
1) As general advice with respect to people you quote.
2) As an implicit advice with Mencken in mind.

In both instance 1) and 2) the word "stand" is the appropriate word to use. Specifically, "stand for" is appropriate with respect to 2) because:

a) whether he is dead or not does not change what he represents (hint: beliefs are timeless, actions are not).
b) usage of "stood for" is not helpful in discerning change in beliefs (hint: the reader can be confused as to what is meant by "stood for" if they are unaware the subject is deceased).



Short sentence or not a comma is necessary because the word "damn" is an introductory word.

You is 50:

You might want to check your youtube news source a little closer. Yea I'm posting on a Sat but After playing golf in the heat I need some AC time.
Let me simplify it for you...when he is talking about his income tax plan he can say "under my plan I won't raise your taxes"...when is talking about his support for cap and trade he is cognizant and admits that the cost will be passed down to the consumer. Where is he lying? Everything is on the f'ing table!!!!

Perhaps you want him to say I will raise some of your taxes when he is talking about his income tax plan? Your hateration blinds you.
