My pineapple brand of chopper sharpen and ready. Put his lj on the chopperboard, come results and I will chop irregardless.

Irregardless is an informal term commonly used in place of regardless or irrespective, which has caused controversy since it first appeared in the early twentieth century.
Most dictionaries list it as "nonstandard" or "incorrect".
The origin of irregardless is not known for certain, but the speculation among references is that it may be a blend, or portmanteau word, of irrespective and regardless, both of which are commonly accepted standard English words.
By blending these words, an illogical word is created. Since the prefix ir- means "not" (as it does with irrespective), and the suffix -less means "without", irregardless is a double negative and therefore would have the meaning "in regards to" when that is not the intent.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, Irregardless was first acknowledged in 1912 by the Wentworth American Dialect Dictionary as originating from western Indiana.
Barely a decade later, the usage dispute over irregardless was such that, in 1923, Literary Digest published an article titled "Is There Such a Word as Irregardless in the English Language?"

We, the citizens of Singapore,
pledge ourselves as one united people,
regardless of race, language or religion,
to build a democratic society
based on justice and equality
so as to achieve happiness, prosperity and
progress for our nation.

Actually it makes perfect sense, not that we have a cooling off period, it will fall nicely on Good Friday!

Yup, Lee Hsien Loong could not take the heat when PAP newbies have been scrutinised left, right and center. So he deliberately choose polling day near or on the bribery day when people take out cash.

He is now counting on naive & poor old folks to sell him the votes.
