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”.

Obloquy

Noun, pl. obloquies

    1. Abusively detractive language or utterance; calumny: "I have had enough obloquy for one lifetime" (Anthony Eden).
    2. The condition of disgrace suffered as a result of abuse or vilification; ill repute.


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....

Inauguration Day is here, keep the obloquies to a minimum, despite theWon. However, if you need to cut loose with an obloquy, just take a gander at this...obsenity.

Anyone directing obloquy toward the *resident will receive no penalty from me.

tioga—Daffy can’t sleep, either.

Yeah, yeah. Your alarm clock ring twice? 8<)

Leastwise, my 12 hour shift has only 1-1/2 hour left.

Each time he demands more taxes, that Obloquy in the White House is (deliberately) trying to throw everybody back into his depression.

Obloquy

“O blokey” sounds very British, probably the name of some drink. When Eden said he had enough obloquy for one day everyone shouted, “Then switch to gin and tonic!”.

What surprized me in the last two Presidential campaigns was that there was so li'l obloquy extended toward one particular side. It was as if the national media spoke with a single monopolistic voice.

It took long enough for the NYC I-just-want-to-go-to-the-right-parties hag to figure out the obloquy her candidate had for the American people.

It's better to endure obloquy, opprobrium, and ostracism than to acquiesce in the pernicious policies of the Obama Regime.



Keep Faith with the Fallen of Benghazi! Let the Obama Regime, for once, tell the Truth!

Middle of the night insomnia ping.

I was awakened by the dulcet chirping of a smoke detector, gently warning me that the battery needed replacing. This occurs every 6 months (approximately) at 4 a.m. (precisely).

Outrageous obstruction of obvious Obloquy by obedient, opprobrious operatives:

hi.

lost of insomnia going on.

I think it is because we are stuck with four more years of obluquies from Obummer.

Just curious - if you know - WHERE are the survivors of Benghazi? And why have we not heard a peep from them? Somewhere on this planet are 30 +/- folks who could very likely shed some light on the lies and obfuscation of 9/11/12 and the 120+ days following.

I have no clue as to their whereabouts - I assume they're being held incommunicado at some remote safe house.
