Posted on 06/21/2012 4:49:30 AM PDT by secret garden
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".
divulse \dahy-VUHLS\, verb
To tear away or apart.
A perforation having been so made, it is safer to divulse the opening rather than to enlarge it by cutting in order to avoid the possibility of opening a blood vessel in an inaccessible region.
-- Eugene Fuller, M.D., The Journal of the American Medical Association
Even if you are the kooper of the winkel over measure never lost a license. Nor a duckindonche divulse from bath and breakfast.
-- James Joyce, Finnegans Wake
Divulse comes from the Latin root vellere meaning "plucked". The prefix di- is a variation of dis- before the letter v meaning "apart" or "away", as in disown.
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....

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
did you watch any of the NHL awards last night? i liked the red carpet stuff this time. Though i was disturbed to see the Gingeroux was catting around Vegas with BizNasty, a bad bad influence! Some of the shanabanning skits were funny, but some were lame and when they showed Shanny, he didn’t look very amused!
The haboob of hope and change blowing this summer is to get rid of Obama. Bad winds for theOne.
I think the tide turned on O back when my dem driver went after us pubbies on the truckroom floor screaming he couldn’t vote for Obama again and that we needed to front a guy he COULD vote for. I always portray Romney to him as Dem Lite. I think he’s a solid Romney voter. His wife is a different story. She would never publicly say she wasn’t voting Dem. She was the top Dem working at the county’s board of elections for years.
what are the chances that NY will go for Romney? unlikely at best. what i need to see is a whole lot more of the Bubbaloon undermining him, THAT will truly give me hope. Hobbes has been banging the clintoon drum as a hopeful sign and i agree that’s good, but i need to see more of it to be sure it’s not just happenstance.
I caught the second half and we thought the Shanny bits were funny, even though he looked kind of peeved. I was annoyed that the gingers beat my players and it was an absolute joke that Karlson won over Shea Weber. The guy did ZERO special team time all season and he’s your best D man??? I don’t think so.
Billy Jeff has a long memory and I don’t think he cared much for how his “wife” was treated in the last primary. He is a consummate politician and may unveil an October surprise of his own.
really thought that Quick should have gotten it over Lundquist, for sure.
and did ANYONE understand what Malkin said??? i think i picked up from Twitter that he dedicated it to Gonchar? can that be right. i thought he said something like he’s my best friend and i hope to meet him some day, totally incomprehensible! but i think he was the most deserving. he kept the Pens alive when the eggshell capt was nursing his scrambled brains back to health.
Obama down 20% among NC blacks. Black ministers ambushing Witholder to get to Obama with complaints about SSM. Unions in WI disillusioned by O and decimated by Walker. Dems ANNOUNCING they will not go to dem convention. Dems up for re-electin shunning Obama. Obama’s fundraising down. The only fans O has left are the Hollywood money class. Keep the faith. It’s happening. You live in a bubble, tell yourself that when you begin to doubt.
Absolutely. It’s a popularity contest. Could you believe when Gabriel Landes-something said his mom was in Hawaii working on her tan? She will never live that down. I would have been there for my kid. Hawaii can wait!
anyone having trouble logging on to Twitter? I can’t seem to get on at all. It’s like they are down? Can that happen? LOL
I mean it’s not like the HC decision came today. That I could see crashing twitter.
Ti, i live in a swing state bubble. you can have all the dems in your station voting for Romney but NY is not going to go republican, it comes down to electoral votes. i am not saying it can’t/won’t happen, but anecdotal evidence of people being disillusioned inspires hope, but not certainty.
Malkin’s come a long way from having no English at all. Gonchar, as a fellow countryman was likely like his big brother as he adjusted to life in the US and PGH.
some were disappointed that Landeskog beat out Nugent-hopkins, but they are both cute ; ) i missed him saying that about his mom, but that is totally ridic that she wasn’t there.
speaking of anecdotal evidence, i have some third-hand from Paula about malkin being out in a bar somewhere in Pgh, several years ago now and his english was good enough to say YOU GORGEOUS to one of her nieces.
Conversations like this are happening. Upstate NY is more like the midwest. NYC and their cheating determines who wins this state, but when Obama is openly trashed and it is acceptable, even assumed, that we all hate Obama it cannot just be a local phenomenon. I give most polls an extra percent or two to Romney due to just that. I suspect that in the liberal bastions they still don’t dare say they are disillusioned. The voting booth is private though. Tide is turning, momentum on our side. We still have tons of work to do and there is time to ensure we win. I choose to keep a positive attitude and keep buying Obama biographies. You are at ground zero - the DC bubble. I will pray for you! ;^)
i am hopeful but skeptical. downstate is far more populous than your farmland up there. i was going to say HICKSVILLE, but since that’s on LI and probably blue, i can’t even say that ; )
Please recall that xsrisingsenior is working at Fairfax co. Romney HQ and calling people on a daily basis, as is her best friend from school, but he’s in the Arlington ofc. I have all kinds of Northern Virginians for Romney bumper stickers but no one wants to take them bc they are sure their cars will be keyed!
Well mail me some!
you want NORTHERN VIRGINIANS for Romney? i can mail them but.... i will see if she can get any regular Romney ones.
It may make Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin more competitive than Virginia.
Also it may make things interesting in NH, NJ, and Maine, but I wouldn't hold my breath there.
Right now Rom is up 3 in Ohio which may be close to a high water mark as this state is 50/50, although I think we can squeeze another percent out of the rural and outer burbs areas.
NY went to the O man by 27 points last time. If that margin is down to 20 this time, we may be looking at least 300 electoral votes, 270 for sure.
twitter is back loading, they acknowledged they had a temporary outage.
is your twitter problem fixed?
They didn’t send you to Club Twitmo did they?
RIGHT NOW is the operative word. is Soros ready to let the Obams go? or whoever caused the fall 08 turnaround?
On September 15, 2008 there was an economic terror attack, what Congressman Kanjorski called an electronic run on the bank, that killed the incumbent party.
Now O is the incumbent party.
Look I’m not counting any chickens yet. But outside of a major Rom scandal or Obama starting war with Iran he is looking more mess than Messiah right now.
Also Soros gave the Euro three months so that means O is going to have a major mess on his hands come mid September.
Pa has a voter ID law set to take effect this fall. Of course the usual suspects are trying to get the courts to stop it. The county executive in PGH said that it would take millions of dollars to train poll workers.
i can’t imagine any Rom scandal is possible, i don’t rule out Obams bombing the hell out of someone to look like a tough guy though.
How sad. The kitty had to divulse itself from its new friend:
saw on the twit that the Sup Ct might issue decisions next week beyond monday, perhaps on tues and weds as well. informed speculation but still speculative...
i was almost late, xshub was sweating it! there was bad traffic on the parkway!
Oh that’s a sweet story. I don’t think my cat would have gone for a bird nestling on his back. I’m glad the enviros weren’t all over her about how a common person would not and should not even try to take care of a wild animal. A+ for you.
Those are just very small trees. ;-)
it was down....my account is working right now.
That’s a very beautiful chapel.
Congratulations on your anniversary to you and xshub.
Thanks, it was a cool place to get married.
if i’d known ya, you coulda been ring bearer ; )
There was an article yesterday, and several others about Obama making race a factor in the campaign.
Clinton will let that set, then repudiate it, because they did OT t him in aught eight.
They painted him as racist as well.
The Black Walter Mondale.
Late? Prior to getting married....?
It is getting interesting politically, isn’t it?
How many in Obama’s charmed circle
Will the latest scandal take down?
Will revelations from those divulsed
Deprive Louis Obama of his crown?
If he weren’t so effete and snobbish
And didn’t openly show disdain
For the very people who can’t wait
To toss him into the political rain
No matter which disgruntled henchman
Eventually turns and drops the dime
Obama won’t play daily golf games-
Seeking work will take too much time...
Twitter is working for me again. I should have just used my phone, since I heard that stayed up.
