Ahem, it's "first-year" philosophy students. If we're going to argue semantics, we're going to do it in the most annoying, politically correct way possible.

I'd actually be goading the GOP in to bogging this down with their lunacy. They need a deal more than the Democrats do.

"Path to citizenship for non-citizens".  How does that work?

To be sure, first-year philosophy majors would do a far, far better job than the mob of clods presently warming seats in Congress today.

Welcome to every atheist-agnostic/agnostic-atheist debate ever.

Freshman?  I work with a dude that has a master's in philosophy, and he's the most argumentative, pedantic, abrasive motherfarker ever.

And yes, he's an Atheist.  And as obnoxious about it as Ricky Gervais.

Fine - semantics.  Then provide a glossary, and start arguing over it, but coming to an agreement on definitions by vote.  I agree that this matters, but it shouldn't take up inordinate amounts of time.  If necessary, use Grades (A, B, C) to categorize - what is Grade A Borderline Security, what elements does it consist of, etc..  There's a lot of ways to do the same damn thing - and it will take some time.  But much of this is already written down so it's a matter of hammering it out.  It can be done and it could be drawn up within 3 months if they spend a month of that defining the glossary of terms they want to use.  And remember, not everyone will agree - so expect that and let's not edit the farking thing to death...I've had to get large execution documents drawn up and approved.  It's not completely democratic (pardon the expression) because then it never gets done - but everyone had say and it got done (from scratch) within 3 months.  It worked and it covered what needed to be covered.

And try to leave the Thesaurus's out in the hall....

Oh no, there you go putting your value-based judgments on my proposals.  Why exactly does your border security plan get a Grade A while mine gets a Grade C?  You're just using ordinal-based prejudice to push your disgusting lib-u-tardo communistic ideas down the throat of the God-fearing Real Americans who make this country great, you socialist; or possibly just using ordinal-based prejudice to expand your fascist theocratic agenda to oppress the rights of the downtrodden, you racist.

YOU'RE JUST LIKE HITLER.
