Words matter: harness

President Obama campaign speech:

From President Obama’s campaign kickoff speech, Columbus, Ohio, May 5, 2012:  ”This country is at its best when we harness the God- given talents of every individual….”
Warning, Americans: For those not raised in farm country, “ harness” is more than a verb implying a general, cooperative marshaling of talent.

I’m not inclined to want to be in a harness. #Don’tTreadOnMe!
