Old English, along with its literature, died out within a century of the Norman Conquest. The language survived, like Guarany in the Spanish colony of Paraguay because Norman lords shacked up with indigenous concubines who taught a corrupt, illiterate babytalk version of their language to the lords' children in the cradle. But such English never became respectable enough for literature until the chaos of the Black Death and subsequent civil War of the Roses allowed for upward social mobility by humble English speakers who began to penetrate the middle classes. By the late 1300s, Chaucer could amuse the still French speaking court by poems in English (now a point of patriotism in the Hundred Years' War against the French) and in 1380 it even became legal for a witness to give evidence in court in English. But the real creation of a national standard of modern English was the work of our first printer, William Caxton who in the 1480s decided the now up and coming language would give him a niche market safe from cheap imports in French and Latin. He both standardized English and provided literary texts in it, most Aesop's fairy tales in translation. Then in 1525 Tyndale made a new translation of the Bible into Caxton's English, and by the mid-1500s, the court was full of fashionable poets writing in it.

I prefer a Weaver stance, leaning into the gun, thus giving me more control over it. OK. That's not what you meant. Gun control is one of my top issues. Any candidate who supports more gun control automatically gets a NO vote from me. Period!

The bad guys prefer unarmed victims!!. When seconds matter calling 911 and asking the bad guy to wait is not a viable option. Better to have a gun and not need it than to need it and not have it!!! **Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens.** So you are against the private ownerships of gun! Do you believe in fire extinguishers? Why, you can always call the fire department!! No Weapons Allowed Criminals this is a defense free zone All law abiding people have been disarmed for you

I agree to universal background checks and bans on certain arms (military level weapons). It won't affect my vote in this or any election, since there are larger issues in America today.
