32. "Cheapest-labor agreements" is the more accurate buzz phrase. I'm going to borrow it.

 

Many of the people who are misusing the language for their own deceptive purposes learned from Orwell or others how to use double-speak.

War is "defense."
Free airport feel-ups are "pat downs."
Anti-union laws are "right to work laws."
And, as you point out, cheapest-labor agreements are now "free-trade agreements."

Next, we'll probably find out that some persons who have strong anti-democratic track records are "Democrats."
