    Anglo Saxon

    Why is Anglo Saxon an often banned language?

    I ask since English is the language being spoken here. Why are words which are so basic to English deemed 'unfit' within any debate? I'm not singling out PH here but as a general and accepted rule.

    It is not possible to give them - the first post speaks for itself - my question is why not what.

    What are you talking about? We could just deal with the Anglo then if you must.

    ? Since all of it is based and much of it still is - what could possibly be the beef? Unless touching base is to be replaced by ignorance.

    Beef is French, is it not? How do you like them venison sausages? Just pork it!

    Sure it is, but a lot of it is completely unrecognizable. The whole point to using words is to communicate. You can't communicate if no one understands the words you're using.

    English is the international language of business, but it is not Old English,, it is American.

    Our maelstroms on the SC are five times out of ten a battle to interpret common English law relative to constitutional law, because if you were to listen to the strict constitutionalists like Scalia and Thomas, Americans have no right to privacy,, as they interpret in the Old English common law sense, which is totally bullshit.
