The gross misuse of the word "junta"
    #2161684 - 12/05/03 03:36 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

jun?ta ( P ) Pronunciation Key (hnt, jn-)
n.
A group of military officers ruling a country after seizing power.
A council or small legislative body in a government, especially in Central or South America.



This nation is not led by a "group of military officers", nor did they "seize power". If they had, the elections wouldn't be ocurring in a little under a year. If they stop the elections, start wearing military uniforms in their offical capacit, you can use this word. Until then, using it only demonstrates your dictionary-challenged mind. :-)

I know, these juntas don't know anything about what a junta really is. It really juntas the junta out of me. I wanna throw junta in their junta loving faces. Hey, remember that show "The Junta Bunch"? That one girl, Jan Junta was really cute. I loved it how she'd say, "Junta, Junta, Junta" whenever she was jealous of her older junta. Anyway, peace love and junta.

No need. They won by all the rules in place at the time of the election.

Actually it's true as has been shown several times, both law and the recounts which followed.

Now if you don't wish to accept that, fine. Be honest enough however to preface an obviously false statement with an "IMO".

No, the facts are that the Supreme Court overstepped its jurisdiction and justified it by a scewed interpretation of the Equal Protection Clause.

No, not false at all. If you think that some minor mistake was made in Florida that lead to Bush being elected, so be it. I don't see ANY proof of that, and a later hand count PROVED that Bush won (another "fact" that liberals like to blindly ignore). However, to compare that to the bloody coups and "juntas" of South America, Africa and the Middle East is a bit of an intellectual stretch.

Bush was elected fairly, wether you like it or not. Bush isn't preventing the elections from occuring or modifying them in a Saddam-esque way that would indicate a junta had taken place. Bush isn't executing or maiming his political opponents a la Arafat. You might not like how he got in power, but it certaintly wasn't a junta.

And bush and blair have no offical relationship, and you haven't said anything about how BLAIRs election was a "junta". A Junta isn't a combination of rulers of DIFFERENT nations, it is the leadership of one nation.

This is a very effective and descriptive politically savvy word you are using, but you are definatly misusing it.

We'll see about that. With the new electronic voting machines, I'd be more than a little suspicious about that.

Of course not. He's just having them rounded up, arrested, and tried in secret.

Not once have I referred to the Bush administration as a "junta." Go ahead and check my post history if you don't believe me.

Don't need to as it's not just my opinion. I've posted the proof in previous threads where you were as wrong then as you are now. You were unable to provide evidence to support your claim then, if you can do so now feel free.

When you can, let me know. Until then this is pointless so feel free to add yet another..... "did so."

My fault for the quick reply there, their is another user, I'll say afoaf and correct it if I'm wrong, that frequently refers to the "Bush/blair Juanta". That is what I was referring to.

I was using the collective "you" and addressing those that have. My fault for the quick reply and the miscomm.

One hand count doesnt "PROVE" anything...let alone that the recount that counted would have yielded the same result...at issue is the fact that by stopping that recount..the SCOTUS (rhymes w/ "scrotum") illegally ruled the outcome of the election...and the mere fact that they did so proves that Gore would have won the FL recount..which still had a long way to go..when 80% of Bush's lead had disappeared...

Showing your blind ignorance and bigotry again, I see. Actually, I was referring to the fact that such machines leave no paper trail, and thus could easily be hacked and no one would ever know about it except those doing the hacking.
