Word For The Day, Wednesday, 8/31/11
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".
following with smooth or logical regularity. 2. Archaic . following, imitating, or serving another person, especially unreasoningly <1. Conformist, following others in thought and behavior rather than leading. 2. Following a logically consistent direction, as a sequacious argument or line of reasoning. Sequacious is both lovelier and more descriptive than conformist, making it the perfect substitute, "The tattoo trade thrives on a sequacious youth trying to be iconoclastic." Don't forget that this word also refers to consistency in thought and behavior: "Trying to diet over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays doesn't strike me as completely sequacious."
Etymology: Today's word comes from Latin, as do so many English words. This one is based on the Latin sequax (sequac-s) "following, pursuing", the present participle of sequi "to follow". In Sanskrit, the ancient ancestor of Hindi and a language related to Latin and English, it became sak- "to follow" and sakis "friend". The original root also took on the suffix -ondo- (sekw-ondo-), becoming secundus "following, coming next, second" in Latin, whence English borrowed it for our word second.
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
It doesn't appear to me that there is any sequaciousness of thought with regards to choosing a republican nominee. I really wish that FR would do a poll, i would be interested to see how FR shakes out.

No pushing at the door please!
dang, didn’t mean to post it twice!
thought of you on my way in, Ceej, bc Sweet Home Alabama came on my ipod, after Freebird. You ‘bama you.
I hear them talk about Perry fizzling and Romney coming back and i think, how delusional. They have no idea that no one WANTS Romney, that the only reason he had any traction at all was because of the weakness of the field. Perry entering it changed that. No way that the novelty is going to wear off Perry and that Romney will surge, that’s just crazy talk. A+++
Sequacious Posting! LOL!
The “Audacity of Hope”, it turns out, is nothing more than the Sequacity of Liberalism—the same old policies, the same old ideas, the same old prejudices, the same old tactics, adhered to and applied with drone-like consistency.
Does anyone besides me recall hearing Shemp refer to katherine Herridge as the TERROR PIXIE once on his 3pm show? i was APPALLED, and in light of this suit, i can't imagine him being so stupid as to say something like that. It was several years ago now, as i recall.
i shoulda thoughta that as an excuse!!! A+++
A+++ are we sure it wasn’t a typo and that he meant the Audacity of Dope?
If she wishes to appeal to the public, the first lady must realize that imitating wookies and sasquatches, is not sequacious.
A+++ well look at it this way, Obams has the sasquatch vote all sewn up! in these days of dwindling base, that’s a plus!
Why Thank You! (takes bow)
Aww thanks xs. Turns out the new Apple CEO went to Auburn. I think I gave him a wedgie once. Still not going to get me to switch to a Mac. 10% of the marketshare, 90% of the crazies.
I heard Skynyrd live back in the 70’s at an outdoor concert in B’ham. Awesome show!! Also one of my frat brothers went to high school with them in Jacksonville, FL and had Leonard Skinner as a coach!
That’s who the band is named after.
Inquiring minds ponder the question daily until they tire,
as to whom our sequacious, stalinistic, slavedriving,
slavesupporting, (undocumented) tyrant does most admire?
cool inside info. Lordy did i know you were in a FRAT???
How many takes did she need - 5?
The rapid prliferation of the same catch-phrases and talking points among the Media indicate they ‘think’ with their sequacious glands...
A+++ i don’t even want to know where those glands are located!
Homework, sort of: My vacation wasn't long enough. I need a sequacion.
A+++ your family would prefer you have a sequestration... ; )
Give me three steps
oooh that smell.....
i continue to love you despite your slavish devotion to the Palin woman ; ) A+++
The sequacious flow of grandchildren continues for the Truthy Clan. Truth’sBabyGirl’sBabyBoy was born at about 6 this morning, making 8 grandchildren in 7 years, all single births spaced among our three kids.
I must have mentioned it at some point. I was actually elected Alumni of the Year in 2009 by my Chapter. When my child went to Florida State, she asked me which one I belonged to. When I told her she was amazed, because apparently I don’t fit the mold for FSU. I don’t have a 19” neck.
I know she’s never had a photo op with ACORN or addressed La Raza, and she didn’t become a millionare in real estate while serving as governor but we can look past all that
People sequaciously voting Democrat just because their ethnic group or family “has always” done so could sink this country forever. That’s because the Democrat party has become the Dictator Party, and reelecting obama would be a disaster that America could never recover from!
Congrats on being a grandad, again.
That’s quite the fecund family you got there.
prodigious reproducers, the progeny of Truth!!! CONGRATULATIONS!
Shoulda figured there was something GREEKISH about you... ; )
typical palinbot slandering other candidates, my only beef with palin is that she simply cannot win.
and i say that in total love for you ; )
A+++ my brother and i broke from the sequacious Dem voting pattern of our upbringing. my father was blue collar union dem, dems were for the LITTLE GUY, republicans for the rich. My brother and i, sole offspring of my union dad, are antiunion republs.
As an attorney you know that the truth is a total defense against charges of slander.
Thanks much. (Assuming that's a compliment.) :)
Of course :)
as a member of the electorate i also know that the palinbots are not garnering any new voters from the undecided by their cultish devotion to their perceived savior.
my gripes with Sarah are nonexistent. her followers from Tammy Bruce on down are extremely hard to stomach. How many people have posted THAT sentiment on FR? i’m seeing it more and more often. i anxiously await a FR poll to determine how many of the cult of personality voters there are.
Thanks. I think they are starting to figure out a cause and effect relationship, a methodology which escapes democrats. My kids are all right-wing nuts, like their daddy.
the right wing SHOULD be fruitful and multiply, as the surefire way to outpace the aborting leftists.
Yes. We have discussed that Tammy Bruce is obsessive as are some others. It’s kind of unfair though to blame a candidate, or in this case a potential candidate, for their supporters.
It’s kind of like with Ron Paul. No one has been righter on stuff than he for years and that gets clearer every day, but he attracts some very young, enthusiastic, bat guano crazy supporters. He’s like a magnet for “crazy”.
And hey I do not rag on Perry supporters for being a sort of overnight generated invasion of the body snatchers like phenomena, one that has even infected my friends.
the most obnox trait of palinbots is to assume that those who don’t think she is the second coming are committed to and flogging for another candidate. my candidate is Marco Rubio and since he’s not in the race i am uncommitted. but were i to go on a sarah thread and explain why i think she has ZERO CHANCE of being elected i would be trashed as a mittbot, a perry supporter or relentlessly hounded by the question of WHO IS YOUR CANDIDATE, always looking for some nefarious motive behind criticism of the sainted one. i am telling you i have lots of conservative friends NONE OF THEM wants sarah palin. not a single one. and none of them is enamored of anyone else, they keep saying OMG who is going to be our nominee, who can BEAT OBAMA??? none of them think that sarah can. that’s why i don’t see her winning the nomination.
