Can We Guess Your American Accent?
You got: West Coast Accent
You got a hella laid-back way of speaking. Whether it’s chilling by the beach or cruising in a drop-top, you take life as it comes, and never sweat the little stuff.
One of the sad and curious consequences of the massacre of schoolchildren in Newtown, Connecticut a couple of years back was the fact that, rather than being chastened by the savagery and encouraged by it to help seek solutions to the country’s insane devotion to its firearms, the radical gun-rights community, abetted by the gun industry’s front group and primary sales organization, the National Rifle Association, intensified its efforts to roll back even the weak regulations currently in place. It was an effective and brutal demonstration of the American right’s political devotion to the orders Stalin gave the Red Army when the Germans attacked. “Ni shagu nazad.” Not one step backwards. And by and large, especially at the federal level, it worked. The “teachable moment” was as evanescent as the morning dew. It’s happening again, in a roughly similar context.Charles P.
