A is for...

ALLY

One of the most misused word in political language. Ally does not mean friend, nor does it mean tributary. It means two or more who share a like self-interest on a very limited topic, or at least in the same heavily vested outcome. A classic example of common purpose in the preening interest of self-love. Both France and the United States believe in a steady reliable supply of electricity for their citizens, they just differ on the voltage. The difference does not make one "anti-electricity". There's no obligation outside of good manners to learn the others language, but still, it's a good idea to bring an adapter when visiting.
