Walmart has hit a few speed bumps recently -- charges of bribing political officials, mistreating employees, using rotten meat from its subcontractors, and using/abusing its child labor force in China. But pay no heed. They deal with this stuff all the time. With what they pay their workers, they can afford to! Smile, be happy. Those extra extra big sized bags of potato chips, frozen White Castles and jars of pickled eggs are coming to your neighborhood soon.

Logical conflation-Conflating words with different meanings can help to clarify or it can cause real confusion. The elasticity of verb meaning in English can be illustrated by instances in which a conflation of motion is merged with manner or a conflation of causation with manner, e.g. The bride floated towards her future.
In an alternate illustrative example, respect is used both in the sense of "recognise a right" and "have high regard for". We can recognise someone's right to the opinion that the United Nations is secretly controlled by alien lizards on the moon, without holding this idea in high regard. But conflation of these two different concepts leads to the notion that all ideological ideas, for example, should be treated with respect, rather than just the right to hold these ideas. Conflation in logical terms is very similar to, if not identical to, equivocation.

I see. Conflation means conflating. As in examples of conflating or conflation. Kind of like equivocation, but not really, but kind of. Equivocation meaning equivocating. As in examples of equivocating or equivocation. Thanks so much for clearing things up.

regina, try contacting the city if you really want to find out more about the progress of the new store. Asking the posters on the PW is a lazy way of trying to gather information, especially when you're able to draw in the likes of jimf.o.s. into the discussion.

It is our constitutional right and duty to criticize all the socialists who have infiltrated our midst. Where in the Constitution does it say we can't comment on Regina's post? Think about it. The next time you pause to think we may be living in Muslim communist hell.

Thank the Lord we're about to have some sanity in the Senate. Our soon to be Tea Party Senator from the great state of Texas has finally shown the intelligence and courage we need in the Senate. One of his first priorities, he tells us, is to protect our Texas golf courses from being taken over by the United Nations. Four!!! Take that all you one-world Kenyan muslim communists.

How do we get so off base? A simple question was asked and we get all kinds of political garbage, not at all relevant to the question. Start your own blog and spout your points of view about all thing political. Let the rest of us get the answers we were looking for.
