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".

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

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Nothing like reading something about the Hildebeast excoriating our President, to get one's blood boiling on a Monday AM

Sadly, many on the left refuse to excoriate the perpetrators of 7/7.

A++ you have to wonder WHAT, if anything, it would take to get them to excoriate the terrorist for their acts.

i skimmed some of yesterday's thread this AM, gabz, i am so sorry about your ankle. what a dang drag. you have to stop beating yourself up for it, though, there must have been a reason that God wanted you laid up this summer and not off doing everything you had planned.

75% of them would change their tune if it was their immediate family. The remainder are too brain-dead -- if you were to excoriate their Leftist "beliefs" you would see a vacuum.

I had a dream last night that Ann Coulter was nominated to SCOTUS. I woke up laughing when Sen. Kennedy tried to pin her down on how she would vote on Roe v Wade and she excoriated him by saying; "Senator, much water has to pass under the bridge before I can answer that. Before you make a big splash about a hypothetical vote, and get us to drown in the details, I'll just say that I'll have to cross that bridge when I come to it."

Good Morning!

Excoriating a liberal only gets you a pile of excretions.

Actually, two piles; the one you removed, and what you have left.

Kennywood is a longtime Pittsburgh area amusement park/institution.

Rivalled only by the more old-fashioned Idlewild Park.

Dunno if Idlewild still has this old-time ride, but it was always one of my favorites.

they must all be owned by the same company now, bc the billboards on the turnpike advertize Idlewild, Sandcastle and Kennywood all together.

Fury is a five year old excoriating Mommy or Daddy because she didn't get her way - especially when (a) ice cream, (b) candy, or (c) getting a pet are concerned!!

How is xsmommy this fine Monday a.m.?

we were there with xsbro and his fam, so a total of 10 of us. do you recall the Turnpike ride? it is the old fashioned cars on the track etc. Anyway, we were lined up there waiting our turn and a guy and his kids came up behind us and said "Yunz in LINE?" (intonation going up at the end of the sentence which is TRUE pittsburgh style, so much of the accent is the intonation!) well xskids and their cousins all burst out laughing bc they know Pittsburghese when they hear it.

lookalike fruits? the Pillsbury Doughboy is celebrating his 40th bday and he was at Kennywood and gave away t-shirts, so we could conceivably had 10 of us in Kennywood outfits.

Morning!

Their party's planned obstruction
Just goes to show us that
No matter who is chosen it
Won't please a single 'rat

They want to have the supreme court
As liberal as can be
And dreaming up new "civil rights"
For every monstrosity

From marrying fruits and abortion
To excoriating the God-fearing way
They want to be the ones to make
The law what liberals say

Kennywood was established in 1878, it is in the historic register.

Chuckie Schumer writes the DNC Talking Points:

For Bush's Supreme Court, excoriate
Every right-winger Bush wants to nominate
'Specially those with a bent
Towards the Framers' intent
The more they adhere, then the more we hate

How do you beat a girl with such a beautiful pout??? ;-P

I'm pretty good. A little beat up from trying to separate a couple of idiots in a bar fight Friday night. I couldn't help but be involved - they almost knocked me off my feet when it started. Wrong place, wrong time kind of thing.

I wish I was as young as I used to be! LOL

Out west (and maybe nationally, for all I know), Six Flags appears to be the Corporate Conglomerate gobbling up management of all the amusement parks.

This guy gets on my nerves.
