I am SO FREAKING TIRED of people who don't know the difference between "lose" and "loose."
Y'all are ILLITERATES!!
Seriously, it's amazing how otherwise successful people are really bad spellers.
Your /You’re has finally driven me insane. Glad to get that off my chest.
“Use it or loose it.”
This simply means use it or let it go.
You’ve been right before. Duncan Hunter lost because his apostrophe was on backasswards.
A Calvin Coolidge quote. Imagine if he'd said, "You loose."
I know what your saying! You’re comment is spot on!
I read Free Republic every day.
Reading Free Republic is an everyday habit.
Lefty loosey, righty tighty. = Hannity and Combs
Like I said to the other one, as long as people know what you mean it don’t matter it’s a mute point.
If you think FR is illiterate, you should see the website for my son’s school!!!

ALL YOUR VERB ARE BELONG TO US!
I feel the same way about mute and moot. Please, there is no such thing as a “mute point.”
It's not just here...it's EVERY freakin' blog out there...the illiteracy is astounding!
I know. I see this everywhere, among all levels of education, and it is one of my biggest pet peeves!
I am also sick of “Lighten up....whoever”
Shaddup with that. People need to rant.
I’m “seeing” a professional editor/proofreader, currently. It amazes me that I’m much more anal about spelling on the internet than she is. Because she gets paid to point out errors, she just blows by bad spelling and grammar on the web.
I think you're right. I learned from my Alabama relatives that the simple “y'all” means one person. To address a bunch of people, it probably should be “y'all’s.”
Oh well, everywon makes misteaks.
