Response to susanna (Reply #25)

37. While some world leaders...

tolerate him out of need, diplomacy and/or as a useful tool and perhaps some out of respect for the office he currently holds, it seems to me that the definition of 'tolerate' and it's Latin root (bear, endure, put up with) is pretty far from that of 'worship' (adore, honor) language wise.

Hopefully some other DUer with MUCH better and specific ancient language skills can address this further. Mine is limited to 3 yrs of HS Latin and that was 4 1/2 decades and barely any speaking, reading of writing it since. (Although it's helped immensely with translating and definitions of some words especially medical and legal.)

As for thinking to much... I'm right there too. According to my husband, daughter, and pretty much anyone who knows me well, I'm the Queen of over thinking.

Actually I tend to think over THINKING is an extremely common trait of most Democrats compared to the vast majority of the current Republicans who are so intellectually lazy that they don't bother and just let their 'dear leaders' do the thinking for them.
