Not too awfully long ago it was brought to my attention of how certain words happen to pop up in our vocabulary. A few years ago it was "Global". How everything seemed to be going that way. Global commerce, Global communication, Global warming, etc.... one way or another we starting using that word in our everyday vocabulary. Recently I have noticed the word "Nuclear". It seems to be flowing out of every mainstream media anchors mouth. It has even come out of me, describing my emotion. Once recently told my son, "There would be a mushroom cloud when he got home."
Those are just a few of the recent observations I have made about our new buzz words. I am not so sure of the how or the why they started flowing off our tongues so easily. We have trivialized these words to not mean what they used to. I have even read an article that suggests we "drop a nuke" on the Gulf oil well to melt it closed. Are these words stealthily slipped into our everyday vocabulary to desensitize us from what is coming? I am sure there are quite a few other sneaky words those powers that try to be get to flow so smoothly from our lips.

it seems that certain words and phrases seep in through subliminal sources into people's every day discussions. i do not believe it is accident, but that it is designed to cause fear or anger or some other emotion which is programmed to come up when certain words are said and heard.

Recently another phrase has been brought to my attention, "False Flag". It has been brought up so many times it has become annoying. To the point, that I am no longer sure what is meant by such. An attempted terror attack? A government ploy that was discovered? A weather mans poor prediction for thunder storms? This phrase has been dropped around like roadside litter. Is it so when the "flag" isn't false, no one really pays a whole lot of attention? Their back yard wasn't effected so why bother? I personally have not noticed a lot of concern. Seems people would rather pay lebron james attention and show concern that he chose a different team. Is this news? Really?

If I hear one more thing about Lebron, I'm gonna lay an egg...

Originally false flag was supposed to indicate that some act of national aggression had been committed which is then attributed to a scapegoat nation..hence a false flag is flown over the event. (like 9-11) Now this phrase has been so overused and in many wrong contexts that it's just some broad term for "conspiracy theorist's silly paranoia". But that is normally the way propaganda rewrites the definitions of the words used so that language and hence communication is undermined.

If i hear "Lebron James" again, between the two of us, we'll be able to make an omlet.

"false flag" is at the top of my list of recently annoying words.. "sheeple" bears charm something like 1 in 1000 times.. "shill" has been so over-abused now that it's not even funny.. thankful the "fiat" fad has calmed down though.

of course often found issuing from sources like Prison Planet and the like.. starting bad trends and ending up, as Cyprium mentioned, being translated to mean some sort of "lunatic fringe fabrication"..

"two legs good.. four legs bad".. 2+2=?

With in the past few months the "buzz words" that I have been noticing often, Genetic engineering. These two words, have been popping up in news articles, random descriptions in news casts. And most recently I have heard it in a car commercial! To dull the mind?
