Obama's using it. Kerry and the other two stooges are using it. The Senate is using it. Is it an "out" later as in: "We did the best we could do with our calculus, but the mathematical problem was too complex to resolve. It was our "best guess." Sorry y'all."


Calculus is the mathematical study of change,[1] in the same way that geometry is the study of shape and algebra is the study of operations and their application to solving equations...

...The word "calculus" comes from Latin (calculus) and means a small stone used for counting. More generally, calculus (plural calculi) refers to any method or system of calculation guided by the symbolic manipulation of expressions.

en.wikipedia.org...

The "study of change" and "a small stone used for counting" and the "symbiotic manipulation of expressions" so says Wikipedia. Hrmmmm.

I don't know where I'm going here...I'm just noticing how quickly it has burst on the scene in this context. Glad to rant and get it off my chest, though, maybe someone has a more synthesized opinion of it?

Bet I'm not the only one to notice it, however...

I dunno about synthesize. But 'weasel', 'obama', and kerry', fit perfectly into a sentence.

Can you link any of the instances you are referring too? I haven't noticed it myself. I am very familiar with calculus having studied it extensively at the university level. I'm thinking it's just a new buzzword? But maybe weasel word fits better??? I don't know.

Still haven't heard anyone say the "C" word in any of those vids or anywhere else. IDK, I will keep my ears open and then maybe I can comment. Thanks, TG, for staying vigilant.

I think it's just the Fed's new "cool" word of the week- they think it makes them sound smart. They are idiots. I took Calculus in school, it doesn't mean you're smart- it just means you can remember long, boring formulas. Hell, even a toddler can memorize formulas if you repeat them often enough to them. Just goes to show how idiotic Obama, Kerry and the rest of them really are.

Hey, brother! Check the following vid at about 17 seconds for Obama using the word "calculus" in the sense I'm talking. It was used by various of the players during the senate hearing as well, but I'm not sure any vids are available of those yet. I've also posted a link below where it's referenced that Obama used it.




Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes did not confirm whether this proof showed that Syria had crossed the 'red line' established by President Obama by using chemical weapons. Mr Rhodes stated that: "The president has said that the use of chemical weapons would change his calculus, and it has."

Well there it is... I guess it doesn't bother me much that they are using this word in this way. I don't expect them to understand what the study of calculus is. I bend the meaning of words all the time myself... well, not really all the time, but I have done it.
