Majority not most?

I thought a Majority meant "a number or percentage equaling more than half of a total" and that most meant "the majority of" or am I wrong?

Doubt fucks everything. Take a foundation, no matter how strong, sprinkle generously with doubt, and watch it crumble. Me? I'm unfuckwithable. Not this knee, not bad weather, and certainly not the many men that wish bad intentions on me can stop me. I rise up, not like a phoenix, but like the zombie corpse of Dick Murdoch.

"a GOOD majority". There is a simple concept in which a combination of words creates a new meaning that the words themselves could not convey. "a good majority" means "many", "a lot", "quite a few", NOT most. It's how the English language works. I thought you would've know that.

Why do I have to "try" to win a debate with a couple of people who don't even know that "majority" means, "most". Come on..

smileeymptysoul, it doesn't address it in any way. Conforming to a nationals laws and regulations isn't being forced to live one certain lifestyle. You have to conform to every countries laws and regulations when you enter the country. Canada is no different, nor is any other country. Wanna try again?
There's a huge difference between conforming to laws and conforming to a way of life. So, stop reading what we write, rewriting and misinterpreting it. Okay? Conforming to a way of life means how to act, look, etc. Immigrants are expected to adopt an American identity instead of a foreign identity living in America.

Really, because according according to Merriam-Webster, you know the people who sort of decide the meanings of the words in the English language, would tend to disagree.

and as for the melting pot thing, that phrase "melting pot", those two words, were brought up by you, page 20, post #198

Re: I've never hated a presidential candidate more than.....

Honestly, I don't see why I bother, with the help of my witty sidekick smileemptysoul17, to debate this girl. Her responses can be broken down to this;
"OMG you guys are so stupid and I'm ignoring what you just said while further questioning it."
Seriously, what she's doing is practically the definition of ignorance.

maybe double posting wouldn't be necessary if you'd read the posts the first time. See above for proof that YOU don't know what majority means in ALL contexts.

Not this knee, not bad weather, and certainly not the many men that wish bad intentions on me can stop me. I rise up, not like a phoenix, but like the zombie corpse of Dick Murdoch.

I've been reading her responses, and she hasn't said anything like that.

If you want to hear "OMG you guys are sooooooooooo stupid", maybe you should interact with some of the American public. Probably Southern California.

Legal immigrants can lead any kind of life they want in America. They are free to have their own religion and free to do what anyone else wants. They are not forced to conform to anything except for the laws in which we all abide. They are free to look how they wish and act how they wish *within limit of the law* just like any of us are. I would really like to know where you get your information from because it's seriously wrong.
