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".
to steal or take dishonestly (money, especially public funds, or property entrusted to one's care); embezzle.
[174050; 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].
Up and near ‘em.
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
when will you return north of the border?
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.
Makes me want to expectorate.
"Public officials should not be chosen
if they are lacking in experience, training,
proven virtue, and demonstrated wisdom. "
so are you doing a whole lotta hurry up and wait, there?
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!
well it is nice to have your smiling face here, backwards and slow though you might be... ; )
Oh, and you are Catholic and Eastern European...we are wired to be gloomy!
I swear I did not see this before my Newt post!
Agreed! I will have to look into the Fort Campbell situation and see if they have needs.
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.
