If said a certain way, these words and phrases are a dead giveaway to where you’re from.

 
In his book “Speaking American” Josh Katz learned that some words are dead giveaways for where an American grew up.

“Some words are like out-of-state license plates—they’re dead giveaways that you’re not from around here. Just try rhyming aunt with can’t in parts of the Northeast or Upper Midwest (you cahn’t) or ordering a sub in Philadelphia, the epicenter of hoagie country.

In recent years, linguists have pondered whether the homogenizing effects of TV, film, and the Internet have begun to eliminate many so-called regionalisms. To find out, I surveyed Americans about how we talk for my book, Speaking American.”

Chuck Schumer says that Democrats, not Russia, are to blame for Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump.

Chuck Schumer: Democrats, Not Russia, Are To Blame For Loss To Trump

Apparently Chuck Schumer just had a “Come to Jesus” moment with his thinking on Trump and Russia, Russia, Russia. Or else aliens have abducted the real Chuck Schumer.

From The Washington Post:

When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in an interview previewing the new plan. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”

After blaming “Russian Collusion” for so long why is this slimy gangster changing his story now?

What on earth did the Democrats do wrong, Chuck?

Let´s see:

  • Nominate, via massive cheating, a known felon under FBI investigation with the personality of Nurse Ratched.
  • Her sex-appeal in the negative hundreds.
  • A documented career of non-accomplishment.
  • Lies galore and brazen corruption, backed up by a criminally negligent “press” several levels below pond scum.

The American people knew exactly what you Democrats stood for and we voted against it!
