B.D.S.

Bluff, Deceive, Swindle?

Bluff, Deceive, Swindle?

For those of you who haven’t been following, when you see B.D.S. coming from one of the Destroy Israel Lobby it means Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions. Fortunately for us its application has been spotty at best but that doesn’t stop it being annoying. So I’ve been thinking about better acronyms.

One I came up with was Brainless, Dopey and Stupid.  Yet another was Bluff, Deceive and Swindle. I’m not taking sides here but after the years of Bush Derangement Syndrome I thought there could be a catchy version here if I could only think of a suitable ‘B’.

So if you can be be demiurgic† or even sensitive, stimulating, stylish or  sublime, with your ideas I’m pleased to hear them.

[Late Latin dēmiurgus, from Greek dēmiourgos, artisan : dēmios, public (from dēmos, people; see dā- in Indo-European roots) + ergos, worker (from ergon, work; see werg- in Indo-European roots).]
