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.
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.

Practice makes perfect.....post on....

Up and at it, we have only 174 more days to defeat Obama. Get to work.
From book sales?
Clearly the Biden argot that he is blue collar is true. The doofus apparently has a negative net worth.
A+++ I have been off the internet for 24 hours. Wow, that’s a record for me. I feel so out of touch.
Our reefer prez has the hand signals down. A+++
I think this be pirate talk for “I got” as in “’Ar matey, ar got me a parrot what drank me rum, nows it like chicken in wine sauce, let’s eat!, ‘ees near done!...ar”.
Note to you pie rates out there: A patch on one makes you look tough, patches on both eyes makes you look dumb, real dumb.
Who knows. I found his newest movie in the dollar store. So much for that source.
Aye, aye, mate. A+++
So, ABC is now saying Zimmerman had a broken nose, two lacerations on the back of his head, two black eyes and Martin had two injuries...one the gunshot wound, the other abrasions on his knuckles. Hmm. Who’s story does that evidence support?
“Hope”, “Change” - part of Obama’s argot
“One-Percenters” now his latest target.
But come early next year
This we’ll no longer hear,
Once we tell him just where he can park it...
I don't know if any of you have experienced truly bad cops but I haven't. I live in a world where I see the police force as men/women who help, not attack and do evil. I can't imagine how hard it would be to chase down repeat offenders knowing they are going to get out and cause more havoc for decent people.
A+++ be glad to see that clan clear out of the White House.
I have never seen anything but the best of behaviors by our police. There has been a story about a corrections officer who beat up an inmate. He resigned his position because of it.
While feasting on steak and escargot
Barack spouts the left’s latest argot
“Romney’s company, Bain
Caused the poor so much pain”
Now they can’t pay for gas to make their car go
I noticed you and mik both used different pronunciations of the word. Both correct: one Brit and one American.
Yeah, like Mer-lo and Mer-lot.
argo like the peas. like jason and the argonauts. like the greek myth stuff.
How is Romney responsible for a man getting laid off two years after he left Bain? I still can’t get over that falsehood making it into an O commercial. So much for his camarilla having a functioning brain or two.
Check my source, the American pronunciation is “ar get”. The Brits say “ar go”. Interesting.
Cruz says the "American firm" had already moved all production to China, thus no american jobs were lost because of this action and then goes on about the claim.
So I'm going with Cruz because the Tea Party backs him and Sarah Palin just recently announced her support for him.
As a side note, that asswipe craig james is also running for the Senate and has less than 1/2% of the vote. lol What a douche.
Interesting that there are two ways to pronounce argot.
ar-go and ar-got
Argot ergo sum.
If you go to my source at the top of the page....it’s “go” or “get”...no “got”. I thought that was weird.
Isn’t that the language Obama should speak to re-start the economy? I mean, now, everything he says is “No development, No drilling, No fracking, No nukes, No energy at all.” To all but new taxes.
Even meanings are a tad squishy, like this ar-go. It could be what the pirate ship carries, a load of ‘argo in it's ‘old.
Anyhow it sounds French since they speak a foreign language and not too good either. They'll tell you “Est ‘argo” and then bring out some snails all greased up in butter so they slide down easy and, and they give you a little pick to get the shells out of your teeth!
Could be, my site only has the American and English versions of the word.
How do things look on the ground there? DNC is pulling out of the effort to unseat Walker. Sounds like good news.
my niece is going to be living in Green Bay this summer for an engineering co-op that she is doing with Proctor and Gamble. my SIL is worried about her car being damaged bc she has some republican sticker on it, and she will be living on the U of Wi-Green Bay campus, in their housing.
She should remove the sticker. Better safe than sorry.
A+++ Womb to Tomb...I like that. It fits.
Things are looking good here. However, I live in one of the most conservative counties in the state, so it is hard to tell. I haven’t seen a ReCall Walker sign, or bumper sticker, in ages. Stand with Walker is everywhere. In other parts of the state, not so much.
I don’t know what to say about UWGB. That is always an iffy thing on any campus. Green Bay is in Brown County which is generally conservative, but campuses are where the radicals hang out. They probably speak their own argot there too! LOL.
Probably removing the sticker is the safest thing to do, until she assesses the lay of the land. I like magnetic “stickers” which I remove if I have to park in the wrong part of town, i.e. Milwaukee.
A+++ DNC bailing means that they don’t want to be around when Walker wins...at least I hope so. Good luck.
oh, yeah, I saw on Twitter that there are Walker signs being set on fire. sounds dangerous in some parts of the state. desperation is not a pretty sight.
It was 56 this morning and very quiet in the woods-now there is noise and asphalt smell-the county has sent a crew to fill the holes in the road that appeared after all the rain last week...
The language that Obama uses
Must just be the argot-du jour-
It depends on whether his audience
Is a certain race, female or “poor”
His sympathy is as contrived
As those famous crocodile tears-
Calculated just to prey upon
The worst of each group’s fears
But now the ‘rat plantation
Is suffering gradual losses-
With fed-up residents bolting
And pointedly ignoring the bosses
i have prolife VA license plates and even that has someone subtly keying my driver’s side door here in the DC gov’t building parking lot. i have no other political bumper stickers just my kids school stickers on my vehicle.
i kinda like the smell of asphalt, truth be told. am i weird?
Getting downright hot outside right now. A+++
I don’t think so-everyone is acclimated to different odors. Fortunately, this asphalt is just cold patch-not so strong and goes away quickly-otherwise, I’d be nauseous-I don’t like the smell of asphalt. I think that what some people like about the smell is that some asphalt has a chemical called napthalene (sp?) in it-the same stuff as in some brands of mothballs. I sort of like the smell of para mothballs, though, not the naphthalene ones...
I love the smell of hay and livestock that prevails here in the morning, but that is because I come from a ranch-it makes a lot of the townies I know want to puke-it is all related to what your nose is used to...
Only 72 here, but it will warm up in the next fews days to what is seasonal-mid 80’s.
yes i like mothballs too. and freshly cut grass.
