Word For The Day, Tuesday, December 13, 2011



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".

peculate{pek-yuh-leyt}

-vt, -vi

to steal or take dishonestly (money, especially public funds, or property entrusted to one's care); embezzle.

[1740–50; v. use of peculate embezzlement (now obsolete) < Latin pecūlātus, equivalent to pecūlā ( rī ) to embezzle, literally, to make public property private + -tus suffix of v. action. See peculiar, -ate1].

Hopefully the Dems won't Peculate the 2012 Election like they did in 2008.

I don’t like to guess or to speculate
But the dems, with our money, doth peculate
Give to unions and pals
Pay for trysts with the gals
Are corrupt in ways I can’t articulate

Friday’s the plan right now. Of course, we havent’ done yet what we came here to do cause the Mexicans aren’t ready. But we told them yesterday that we’re leaving Friday for Christmas, so maybe that will light a spark under them.

People predict persistence of the
pervasive pathologic peculation
by the phoney, pretend pRes_ _ent
and his "parasite party" (DNC).

"Public officials should not be chosen
if they are lacking in experience, training,
proven virtue, and demonstrated wisdom.
"

Yesterday i started to feel that the Obams would be re-elected. Last night xshub came home and said he had concluded the very same thing. And we had not talked about it since independently coming to the same conclusion, since it’s been recent. I pray we are wrong and it’s our inherent gloominess coming through.

Yes, but at least we have a slow wireless internet connection on site, which is more than I had in March.

I am feeling the same way. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I mean, Obama is throwing us a damned softball (not fast-pitch!) and the damned Pubbies are wiffing it! God help me, but Newt is starting to look good to me! I feel like I have beer goggles on!

The unemployment rate has edged down, he’s claiming military victory and withdrawal and visiting troops at Ft Benning etc. He will implement the most drastic slash and burn campaign of our lifetime and we have.... NO ONE. yeah, newt is looking decent, romney, ANYONE BUT OBAMA! but i don’t know if the rank and file electorate are as disgusted as we are and whether any of these alternatives are palatable to them over the socialist we know.

If the GOP can’t make hay out of this unemployment (and it going down because workers have left the labor force is nothing to trumpet), and Obama frustrating business with the NLRB and EPA and the pipeline non-decision, then they really are the stupid party.

I’m becoming resigned to the Romney eventuality. Newt will blow up at some time.

Newton Leroy Gingrich really does need to blow himself up because the ladies aren’t going to vote for the twice divorced guy. I checked with my focus group, it ain’t happening.

Someone could ask him to elaborate some more on having little black school kids working scrubbing toilets.

That should have killed him there.

Peculate. As in boil.

My coffee pot has begun to peculate. Another cup, I speculate. Another and I’m certain late.

I was on a Corzine thread over the weekend and someone told me that his pants were down around his ankles when he crashed on the NJ turnpike while governor. OMG....I have been laughing ever since. Wonder how the bimbo was dressed...they didn’t say.

Beer goggles....that’s IT! Me, too. I answered the phone when Newt called....listened to his whole spiel and spoke to the live person afterward. Told them I am not ready to donate to anyone, but that I am leaning Newt.

I read a tweet that someone had Ron Paul on a TV show and was asking him to critique Newt’s debate performance. Like “He’s a fellow candidate, not a pundit!” Hello?

can you go to Urgent Care for meds? and did you ask to be called if there was a last minute cancellation at the ENT?

I have meds. I can call daily looking for a canceled appointment and try to move up. She offered me an appointment with the nurse practitioner, but the solution is surgery...it might or might not help to see her. I will call daily (per their advice) to ask about cancellations, perhaps they will get sick of me and give me an appointment. I don’t want some lackey kid doing my surgery. I had sinus surgery before and he has since retired. This is the top guy at that hospital now.
