I actually like that word, and find myself using it alot. Especially today.
It's a great way of focusing people minds. You get into these conversations, conversations where the persons first point is a fact he or she may not like but can not change.
And I answer, "so?"
Not to be an butt hole, but get them thinking, "o.k., so what are you going to do about it."
Today the Congress voted to send a bill compelling retreat from the battlefield, retreat in a war with nihilistic murderers.
Today congress stated a fact, one they don't like. War sucks.
