Politicians, their lawyers and their Wall Street bankers, who pay them handsomely through campaign contributions to keep them in office, have come up with a word seldom used in everyday language by everyday working Americans: sequestration. Not confiscation, deprivation, execution, garnishment, impoundment, seizure, but sequestration.
Sounds a lot like the word castration to me, and it’s being done with government-speak scalpels.
Let’s all get up and cheer for our government’s vocabulary. It’s so pleasing to the mind and ear.
