I’m paraphrasing a little. It was more like “Raise it to the ground”? But, they hardly even teach proper English in school anymore. Kids entering college these days spell text-message style. You know, with “u” meaning you, and “2” meaning to.

I have a college age daughter that deals with this everyday.

Thankfully, she has exceptional verbal skills and actually listens to what people say.

What have the Brit’s ever done for us anyway ?

“Raise it to the ground”? But, they hardly even teach proper English in school anymore.”

Is that why kids are reared, rather than razed or raised?

Even Raze it to the ground is a redundancy; certaintly poor English.

"Raze it" should suffice.
