    That’s a good one.

    You can tell mustache man isn’t into it.

    For wit, one could say “I looked well on him,” instead of this goofy “I onlooked his Ipswich.”

    Plainspeak can be well met, thought out and lovely. It doesn’t have to be ugly, or “weird” (wholly misunderstands the meaning of the word) as this is the gormless thinking of Clown World.

    Boom. Anglish.

      I see your point. It was new to me and I didn’t really thought about it.

      I too believe that Anglish could work.

    Pure Saxon English: Or, American to the Front

    Originally published in 1890 when many Germans and broadly Northwest Europeans were arriving in the United States. If the WASP elite of the time had given the book greater clout in the government who knows how things could of been different for Europe, North America, and the world.

      Yes, Northwest Europeans make great countries. Everybody else, more or less makes shitholes.
      I don’t have anything against countries like France and Italy, but it is very clear that the standard there is just lower. It seems clear with countries like Switzerland and Belgium, Germanic part vs non-Germanic part.
