It's amazing what words do. I was reading a newspaper article about the financial "bailout" that failed to pass whatever it was supposed to. The article was saying how it had failed and that they were changing the wording to get the "bailout" passed. (not in so many words though. haha)
"Bailout" has some pretty negative connotations. People "bailout" their relatives or friends who have been up to no good and got caught in the act and arrested. Other people "bailout" their sinking boats. Neither of which are good circumstances. Now our government wants to "bailout" sinking banks who were up to no good and got caught in the act.
I guess there were several surveys taken and the general consensus was that "bailout" was not a good word to use. So they are changing the wording to "investing in our future", "or the economic rescue bill" and that is supposed to sound much more like it will be to help us. I say BS!
A rose still has thorns even if you simply call it a flower.
