President George Bush’s budget plan proposes a record $3.5 billion increase in new user fees. He may not hate taxes as much as he loves shifting the costs of services to the users of services. How about also proposing abuser fees that would shift some of the pain of hearing the english language abused to those who abuse it?

A colleague sent me this collection of Bushisms: some old and some new…
