Another control word I've been hearing lately is "refuse". As in:
Why do you "refuse" to pass the bills my side wrote?
Or, Why do "refuse" to get tattoos?
Or, Why does the mayor's wife "refuse" to publish their teenage love letters?

Well, who said that anyone should? Who is setting these arbitrary criteria that they expect us all to obey?

Watch this tactic. It's coming into style.
