that word kerfuffle is a 21 century word...

This end of year 2013 features the international and domestic USA kerfuffle, from a not politically correct "ducks dynasty" patriarch, to the USA named for this President universal "Health Care" roll out, and predictions of more than a disaster yet coming for this new "Health Care" yet in a 2014 kerfuffle of unsigned young healthys who are avoiding insurance which is the opposite to the sick and infirm who are clamoring and signing up for their new better insurance.

It's sure to be more of a kerfuffle when according to some the guarantee in this 200 page plus law includes a guarantee to the health care insurance providers that USA taxpayers will pay to bail them out when  all the sick and old very sick take up all the premiums with no healthys to prop them up—and that was a run on mouthful.

This is a major disturbance ongoing and coming up, but there's also a fuss about the NSA spying on allies amidst a clamor from civil rights advocates, plus such strange bedfellows like Oregon's Udall and Rand Paul, please, it's noisy when some prominents who are part of the big money in Silicon Valley are doing a cacophony chorus with the notorious Google who collects everyone who has private data with such impunity, and theYahoo that still spies on my e-mails with notices that my session is timed out, also Facebook that uses friends' data to put on ads that speak to their likes, gosh, it's a din that fuddles me.

By now it is obvious that a kerfuffle is of British origin, and is opposite to calm,  peace,  and tranquility—though when you go back in history and find out that their empire building was the building of states with no rhyme or reason that are now doing worldwide jihad in countries with ethnics at war with each other—and when they, the Brits decided to dissolve their ownership, the rest of the world was left with the mess of more than a kerfuffle.

As I've noted before words and meanings have meaning to our 21st century of daily uncertainty, be it the weather or something that evades the control of a global society, and I don't know about you, but for me that makes life less than than tranquil.
