Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Honestly, i was going to try for some highbrow homework, possibly dealing with the Newsweek Koran scandal, but i got pinged to another Jilted Jenny story, and you can't beat the runaway bugeyed bride for an example of licentiousness. The best has to be this quote from her former paramour:

"I would have turned her ass in, no question," former flame Todd Kendrick told The Post.

Nice guy that Todd...well i guess he had attributes other than gentlemanliness and chivarly, which attracted her....

from what they say on that thread, I wonder if that dude's quote was chopped short; they may have cut "...side-out"

Licentiousness - this word reminds me of the impeached 42 and all the garbage he tracked into the White House. It sums up his character in a nutshell.

I didn't make it up; but it does fall into the nebulous category of "stuff I heard about once"

Newsweek's recent licentiousness is a perfect example of the "Blame America First" philosophy of the press. It assumes the worst, and is rushed to press before the facts can be crosschecked and confirmed. And 16 people died as a result. To which Newsweek gravely mumbles "I'm sorry".

Instead of the morality
that bonds the family together,
and makes the future possible,
the post-modern relativists
offer licentiousness,
meaninglessness
replacing hope.

When you join the "Mile High Club," do you get a pilot's licentious?

By that same token, Bill Clinton lost his licentious to practice law.

The senatorial consensus,
Seems to run toward licentious,
With the Kennedy-Durbin special,
A waitress sandwich, with Mezcal,
That leaves the poor woman defenseless.

I remember the southern gentleman who, when little Billy Clinton asked him whether or not he should tell an untruth, responded; "Licentious going to anyway"

Morning! I've always been fond of that word-

The latest on the loon from Georgia
Just proves that she's a tart
As well as a kleptomaniac
With a preference for Walmart

The bragging on her chastity
By her clueless fiance
Just showed that he's the only one
To whom she didn't give it away

If her licentiousness was so well known
It is obvious to me
That the fiance is a masochist
Exposed on nationwide TV

It didn't stop raining till nearly 10 last night, and it is still overcast outside-I'm going to go do an estimate now so I can get back before it rains again...

A++++ the D. xshub was ranting about this yesterday, he is all for heads rolling, and holding the media strictly liable for misinformation put in the stream of commerce that results in people dying. If Ford Motor Co. put out a product that resulted in death, you can bet the media would be screaming for strict liability against them. Information is their product, they need to be held accountable for it.

"five-years without will make one a virgin again"

I'd never heard that either, but if it is true-based on the last five years of my first marriage, I was one again when I married hubby-I can't wait to tell him...

I think that Newsweek needs to have the s*** sued out of them by every family who lost a loved one as a result of their military-bashing lies. That is what would happen to Ford, GM et al if their product caused this to happen.

Their "Editor", Mark Whitaker, should be on a plane right now, flying over to those nations and apologising in person. Then (if he makes it back) he should go apologise to the President, the Joint Chiefs, and then an open letter to the troops. But somehow, I doubt he'll get around to it.

There once was a woman licentious
with morals of lib'ral consensus
she put down her boot
and stepped on a Newt
then they kissed, and we ask where the sense is?
