F-Bomb Dropped on the Granite State
Dropping an F-bomb in a speech is plowing new ground, even for Donald Trump. While it's off limits in my world, frankly the level of disourse in general discussion these days mirrors Trump's utterance in NH this week.
When you hear younger people talk these days, the F-word is common usage, and the notion of watching your expletives in front of women is a quaint anachronism.
Expletives have a role in language when used sparingly for emphasis, Like when you are pounding a nail and hit your thumb.
Today vulgar words are so common in general speech, they have little impact.
