I’m ticked off at people who say “Someone could have cared less,” when in reality they mean that the people couldn’t have cared less. To say I could have cared less implies that you must care at least a bit, over zero caring. But to say I couldn’t care less says, I have zero interest. And don’t get me started on “Holding down the fort!”
To the person ticked off at lobbyists, the only form of life on the planet lower than lobbyists are the politicians who accept their bribes! Our government officials are for sale to the highest bidder! Disgraceful!
