I checked the Merriam Webster Dictionary...50th addition and dumbies is not in the dictionary....I then checked the Newword Dictionary...thinking it was a new word? LOL The Newword Dictionary is the second college edition and it is huge...so, what dictionary did you find the word dumbies in?

Don't feel too bad about this thread. One the one hand, it's unfortunate that your misspelling of a single word in the headline seems to have distracted people from everything else you tried to say. But on the other hand, this is one of the funniest threads I've ever seen in my life. Once you've been around Freerepublic for a while, you'll be laughing at this too.

Good Post Freedom Friend. Also Good Post Zordas. I get flamed, pummeled, laughed at, mocked, ridiculed...and what ever else you would like to throw in, but I don't need to be thick skinned, I don't want to harden my heart to people. If that were the case then Christ would not have said, "Forgive them Father for they know not what they do." His pain was genuine and not a pain you could harden yourself to. I believe in what I say, and I will not move from what I believe. I don't hide behind a fake name so that I may show a nature which is one I would not show if everyone knew who I really am. And I would go face to face and toe to toe with anyone here. BUT I would also open my door and feed them if they were hungry and clothe them if they were cold, and love them if they were hurt. AND NOT back off of what I believe nor shut my mouth!!

Okay, I'm 24 years old. I graduated summa cum laude from Georgia State University. However, it's worthless, I presume? It doesn't mean anything that I practically spent all of my time reading in the University library. I misspell one word and all of a sudden I'm stupid, a product of the public schools. You've never misspelled a word? However, despite that, this topic barely gets any real discussion. I continue to see hundreds of posts on Anthrax. I mean, how many posts can we have on Anthrax? I want to see action, thus I decided to posts on troubling examples of reality. It was a goal of generating discussion in an effort to bring about ideas that could be used to implement a plan of action. You see, I've felt that we need good men to occupy the ranks. However, I've seen very few. Therefore, I'm seriously considering entering the political system.

It's a shame that the "misspelling" of one word is more important than a topic of concern.

How Have We Become a Nation of Dumbies?

Well, I admit I HAVE noticed a decline in the collective ability to spell even fairly simple words, like "Dummies".

Next up, we debate the topic "Have We Become A Nation Of Gumbies?"

One needs only at the misspelled "dummies" (your "dumbies") to determine how it happened.

We've already given 68-69 a bunch of krap on that, cote. Yatch is truly a word meaning "yacht." We do believe he had been imbibing on the evening he chose his screen name.

"Speaking of spelling - what on earth is a Yatch Club or have you been all through this before? If so, ignore post :-)."

hehehe, I'll never live it down!
however
Webster's Third accepts "yatch" as a variant of yacht
my original mistake when signing up

'68-'69

You will have achieved maturity when you laugh at this, rather than announce your disgust with the way the thread has turned, promise to no longer engage others in this thread, and yet continue to post and lecture.

I think you are 100% correct. Our leaders have sold out to the bucks that flow freely to buy influence.This shows in the way the Clintons and Democrats,along with a few Republicans sold out to the Chinese.Clinton/Gore by themselves dismantled our National Security . And just to be honest I dont think America really has learned from what took place on September 11.I think the worst is yet to come and not saying it from fear but I think maybe the man upstairs spoke and the USA is still not listening.

Calm down....it's ok...we're just playing....

There may be more education in these rooms than you can shake a stick at...maybe most of us have spent hours in college libraries...but don't let that wig you out!

Typo's and spelling errors are ok!!! It's just that your subject AND your boo-boo were a funny mix!

LEARN TO LAUGH AT YOURSELF!!!

I applied to be a member of the spelling police but my spelling sucked! They went and stuck ME on the "FASHION POLICE FORCE" instead!!! Talk about IEarny!

MY MOTTO: (ok, one of my MANY motto's --or is that mottoes???):

SPELLING AIN'T NO MORAL ISSUE!!!
