The Editor:  Do you know about robots, Lois ?

Sphinx Main

The Editor:  Is this a news update, Lois ?

News Cat:  Yes, here is a former Senator at work.  On Cumberland he would lose 90 % of his wealth and be banned for life.

Here are some new Americans here legally, only God knows what the thirty million illegals are doing.

THE SPHINX—BECAUSE

Sphinx Main

The Editor:  Because what, Lois ?

William Buckley Cat:   The anarchist are trying to make ” because ” a preposition, instead of a conjunction.

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/conjunction

The Editor:   Who cares, half the people in America speak Spanish and half twitter,tweet, etc., on their smart phones.  They haven’t written a complete sentence in years.

WBC:   WFB JR’s Ghost doesOne day there might be a shortage of conjunctions.   I just can’t see ” because ” as a preposition.

http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/what-is-a-preposition.html

http://stancarey.wordpress.com/2013/11/13/because-has-become-a-preposition-because-grammar/

The Editor:  I don’t see the problem.  Give our loyal readers an example.

Language Cat:   Look at the previous link.  This is just another attempt to bastardize the language, and bring everyone down to a common level of ignorance, laziness, sloth, and general level of ” average “.       Have you ever seen an average raise the top performers ?  Stick a ” because ” in this.

The Editor:   I want to issue a weather alert.

Weather Cat:  That’s amazing, we are naming storms and blizzards.   I like some other names of the country, Land of the Big Sky,  The Great Plains, Rocky Mountain States,  Pacific Northwest, Four Corners, Deep South, The Continental Divide, etc.

I hope everyone is careful over Thanksgiving.  If you fly a new Bong Airplane remember they ICE UP IN STORMS-unless they are on fire.

http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/11/20/three-knockout-game-attacks-reported-in-philadelphia-area/

The Editor:  That is weird, no robbery or anything, I guess they are just misguided.

LTCC:  That must be it, they are bored.   Citizens are catching on to the game.

http://www.wilx.com/news/featured/headlines/Dangerous-Game—Point-em-Out-Knock-em-Out-231443411.html?device=phone

The Editor:  Maybe when a few minority perps are killed- –  Al, Jessie, and Rangle will speak out.  Is there another trend ?

Bong Cat:   Here is a plane landing at the wong airport,  what an attentive pilot.
