New Testament View on Digitial Communications

The Bible's for it, according to Matthew 5:37:
But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
Indeed, this passage might even be reference to communications from the Apostles themselves. (If you can't figure out why, I'm sure some commenter will explain.)

Dems have always used imaginary numbers.

You do realize that when you square an imaginary number, you get a real number.

Sorta explains a lot about Democratic budget proposals, don't it...?
