Word For The Day, Day, Date



In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".

ex·co·ri·ate; tr verb

1. To tear or wear off the skin of; abrade. See Synonyms at chafe. 2. To censure strongly; denounce: an editorial that excoriated the administration for its inaction.

[Middle English excoriaten, from Latin excorire, excorit- : ex-, ex- + corium, skin; see sker-1 in Indo-European Roots.]

Thanks you. I ran into the fiance yesterday riding his favorite horse down the main road near his ranch-since that is the horse the loon attacked, I asked him about assault charges. He said he felt sorry for the crazy woman and hated to do that-I don't know about the son, yet.

Hey, Goooood Morning XS and group ;-)

I found it is possible to read and post, albeit with some difficulty, if I use the "text magnification" function" of my PC, so, since I have been suffering from FR/WTFD withdrawl symptoms, and presumably will continue until my first eye is magically repaired on the 21st, with the "bionic" lens implant, and I gain my perfect --LOL-- vision in that eye back again (the other will be done 2 weeks later, and don't ask why the cataracts came on so fast, all I get is "they can and do" from the ocular type MD;s I will have to put up with the screen magnification and eyestrain, and the occasional misspelling......

OK....on with the WFTD.

We (the collective we of the cowardly heads of state) have waited far too long in the excoriation of the cowardly terrorists. I have been preaching like a fire and brimstone driven Gospel Minister since 9/12/01 that there is only one suitable answer for this ongoing terror. The problem seems to lie in two basic areas, first, we are deadly afraid to NAME OUR ENEMY and name them loud and long, just as in WWII. The second is the seeming weakness of resolve on the part of all concerned as well as the total forgetting of institutional memory learned during WWII when we had to deal with just such an enemy who regarded suicide attacks as honorable and "holy"... if one remembers, there was (I have no I dea if there is now) word for "surrender" in Japanese. At any rate, it only took 2 rather primitive, by todays standards, nuclear weapons to make said enemy find words to express "unconditional surrender". Such excoriation was necessary and saved literally millions of American lives.

We have, over the 60 or so years developed a huge guilt complex and apologetic knee jerk reaction at using what we developed to end what would have otherwise been a bloodbath of Biblical proportions.

OK....It is no secret here on FR that since 9/11 that I have advocated cutting the head off the terrorists by removing that for which they fight, and reducing their shrines to caldrons of molten, radioactive green glass. Such glass does not a shrine, nor a haven for terrorists make, and such an excoriation sends out such a powerful message that it is unlikely that attacks would continue, since any repeat of an attack would result in additonal conversion of real estate into green glass. It was also my statement that we dust off the Enhanced Radiation devices (a/k/a "Neutron Bombs", or more correctly, X-Ray emitters) to eliminate the combatants while preserving the infrastructure for whatever use we choose to make of it.

Since the MSM and the rest of the liberal talking heads seem to scream their collective mouths off about :it's about the oil" well, hell, let's make it about the oil.... I would far more like to see Old Glory flying over the oil fields than anything with a stupid crescent on it.....besides, it would do wonders for the supply and demand and oil futures LOL.......

I hope I haven't offended anyone by my rather draconian proposal, but dammit, terrorists only understand terror, and I say, give it to them in spades, and lest anyone think gwmoore is all talk, I will be more than happy to strap the aircraft on my butt, and watch that large black suppository come off the racks, the cables pull free, as it begins it's inexorable decent toward the double actinic flash. I will even be willing to do same prior to my cataract surgery, as I think I can still see a glass cockpit or a radar screen well enough to do what has to be done.... Besides, I can then use the line I have been wanting to use for some time in a book, but never have gotten around to writing same " And once again, the pure double flash of the actinic light of God's Creation shown upon the firmament, and once again, God saw that it was good, and the excoriation of those who would defile his world had been carried out"......OK, hackneyed, but I always wanted to use that darn line............

It's good to be back on WTFD with my usual rant, even if I have to have HUGE font size LOL... Keep the faith for freedom.

A+++ good to see you back, greg!

are deadly afraid to NAME OUR ENEMY

this is so true. we were in a restaurant over the weekend that had a newspaper clipping framed from WW2, and xshub was showing the text to xsboy. it referred to JAPS! can you imagine that, we can't come out and say our enemies are MUSLIMS let alone the perjorative, RAGHEADS.

I don't remember a tunnel of love ride......just a boat ride through a "haunted house" that wasn't scary. And there were like 6 people to a boat, so how much could you do anyway?

i would have loved to go on an ethnic day, but this past weekend was basically our only opportunity to go and meet my bro and his family. the kids had a great time. Noah's ark is still there, isn't it sad that they made this biblical story into a horror/funhouse? my almost 20 yo niece had to be carried through there by my dad when she was about 4 yo bc she was terried. i told bethany that i was NOT going to carry her this time, if she got scared!

the Old Mill was it and our Jr High and HS school picnics were at Kennywood, so it was definitely where people necked etc. I kept accusing my bro and SIL of necking on various rides this past weekend.

With words intended to be excoriating,
Bond did a fine job imitating,
The shrill tones of Hillary.

His rant was so irritating,
It could even be ranked as bloviating,
Bush was wise to avoid his pillory.

a college-aged leftwing xshub once gave julian bond a ride to an event where he was speaking up at SU. yikes! xshub was a leftwing activist in his youth and with the zeal of the converted, you can't GET any more rightwing than a middleaged xshub A++

Although hardly a poet laureate
Let me mention someone to excoriate
Fat ol' Mikey Moore,
The Left's reprobate boor,
The more awards he received the more he ate.

Had I come home with a suckerbite, excoriation would have been kind compared to what would have happened to me!

Good morning, xsmommy:

Last night, Matt Drudge and Ann Coulter were in high deliberation
Over Pelosi's and the Left's excoriation
Regarding Closed Circuit Camera Surveillance
At all train and Metro Stations

The San Fran Crisco Queen's gray matter in serious abeyance
Prattled on as though the cameras were Just The Thing
To keep what happened in London from happening
In the Castro, Haight and the City's busy streets

As if cameras were disintegrating lasers
Why would they upgrade from dangerous Tasers?
If they could hire an army of denizens to watch Monitor screens?
They could hire an equal number of cops to walk those beats!

Tonya, the eminent floozy
Excoriated for not being choosy
in her taste in boys
defended her choice:
"The low blood flow just made me woozy!"

Bad problem, getting limited by the "rules" for arresting/forcing people into therapy/confinement.

but, the liberals forced most (not all, but most) of the inmates out of the asylums in the early/mid seventies as part of their campaign to deny anybody is abnormal/normalize everything. Once on the streets, these (literally in many cases) insane people became the "permanent" parts of the "no housing" crowd blamed on Reagan.

But, the same laws prevent others (particularly those in the KGB/Hillary's FBI/ATF/INS) from stuffing US into an asylum without review and appeal.

or the mother of the seminarian in the church we went to in Monroeville, PA, who had tattoos on either shoulder blade and had a sleeveless blouse on. more power to whoever has them, but it looked incongrous beyond belief on the mother of this guy heading to Rome to study there for the priesthood.
