"Obama’s signature legislative achievement"

Orwell:
1.Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.
2.Never use a long word where a short one will do.
3.If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.
4.Never use the passive where you can use the active.
5.Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
6.Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.

Try googling the phrase Obama’s signature legislative achievement.
Orwell would have to weep.

So this ... eh, insightfulness is all the work of your magnificent mind, right, Meade?

None of this would fall under the Memo to Drone category, would it? Eh?
