Dear The Hill: “Bold” Does Not Mean What You Think It Does

Remember patriots, THIS is the face of your enemy. Or something
(Ricardo Ramirez Buxeda/Orlando Sentinel; from here)

To headline an article about the devastating cuts that would be inflicted on Medicaid, healthcare for the poor, The Hill came up with the following headline:


Because we like helping, let’s clarify something: harming the most needy and powerless so that one might lower the tax burden for the wealthy and powerful, is not bold. It is heartless. It is cruel–and needlessly so. It is deviltake-the-hindmost-as-policy. If one is of a religious bent, it is an abomination before God.

However, to ‘afflict the afflicted and comfort the comfortable’ is not bold, it is cowardly.

Just to be clear.

    To the author of that one, “You use that word a lot…I do not think you know what it means.”
