Collins Dictionary describes definition as: a statement giving meaning of a word or expression especially in a dictionary

However the meaning of a word to the new Washington wordsmiths is purely discretionary

Once again the problem comes down to those pesky written definitions. Use one word or statement to depict an agenda and someone will wave a dictionary in your face

So this administration has developed a unique idea to rewrite the definitions should they need to use an all encompassing word to make their case

The following examples highlight terms currently being redefined to satisfy their needs

Keep in mind the way this term is used is the new definition and the usage in terms of previous definitions, this now supersedes

Unity: a condition of harmony; the quality or state of being one

Currently unity appears to have all citizens become destitute and therefore government dependant and when questioned about it watch the President cut and run

Border: a line separating two political or geographical areas especially countries

Currently the term applies in both a geographical and political area only to Ukraine as in the United States the line is used to count the number of migrant crossings and illegal entries

Deter: to turn aside, discourage, or prevent from acting

Currently deter had been liberally used with sanctions to keep Russia from crossing the previously mentioned border but a testy President now insists that sanctions would not deter Putin from enacting

Woman: an adult female person

Currently there is some confusion as how to define a woman, apparently needing a biologist and test results involving blood and urine

In trying to keep up with the new definitions coming out of Washington, the thumping sound you hear is poor Mr. Webster flipping in his grave

Much like the population of this republic now being gender fluid perhaps the New Order Dictionary is just as fluid and dictionaries published before 2020 you don’t need to save
