"Is there anything more American than America?"

That it was delivered by Bob Dylan probably made it worse.

  1. "Is there anything more shitty than shit?"

    When put this way ...well, adjectives are fun.

  2. Odd that even blog commenters who call America shit choose to live there. Copraphagous perhaps.

    1. Are you serious? You seem to be taking some charity with your conclusions. Did I call America "shit" or America "shitty"? Nope.

      What I did do was point out the grammatical and linguistic functions at work, and I used a different word to illustrate this relationship. IOW, I was pointing out how the relationship between an adjective and an object noun aren't always clear, that there is a lot of subjectivity between them, depending upon how the words are used.

      In your mind, because I replaced the word "America" with "shit", that must necessarily mean that I think "America=shit" or "American=shitty". In reality, all I did was choose a word in order to better illustrate the grammar at hand.

      And just to be clear--since we're talking about grammar and definitions--I have absolutely no problems with nations, continents, cultures, governments, peoples, or anything else of that like. My primary objection is against the state (i.e. a monopoly over the aforementioned things). If you can somehow equate "America" with the "state" without the use of adjectives or propositions, then I might give you my ear on this subject. Until then ...

  3. Did I mention your name Joseph Fetz? I believe you just drew a natural conclusion from the juxtaposition of short, epigrammatic comments. As did I.

  4. Well I guess the answer to Dylan's question is....blowin' in the wind?
