Did you listen to how President Barack Obama said the word "ask" during his inauguration speech? He said "ask" not "ax." (An "ax" is a chopping or cutting tool. "Ask" means "to call on for an answer."
If a person says "I am going to ax someone," it sounds like they are getting ready to attack somebody.
Set aside politics for a minute and listen to how Obama speaks correctly.
On this matter, I think we should emulate him.
