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.
Also: mankier, mankiest
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....

The ineligible tyrant carpetbagger Mitt Romney:
"I bet you $10,000 that the 'death panels' and havoc we enforce now
will not even concern you, as you rot behind bars,
and I pretend that I only 'worked in the private sector'."
"We're going to have to, if you're very old, we're not going to give you all that
technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you
maybe going for another couple of months. It's too expensive...so we're going to let
you die." Robert Reich for Barack Obama"
"One of the traditional methods of imposing statism
or socialism on people has been by way of medicine..."
President Ronald Reagan
"National Health Preview - The Massachusetts debacle, coming soon to your neighborhood."
As costs continue to rise, the inevitable results are coverage restrictions and waiting periods. It was only a matter of time.
A+++ Scary isn’t it?
Given that Obozo considers Joe Biteme to be such an expert on forgien policy I guess io should have expected such a Many comment from him about the Taliban not being our enemy.
My MIL is a dem and at 90 yo has a crush on Joe...LOL Makes for interesting conversations. She thinks he is so intellectual. (sigh) A+++
Mr. Hankey’s rather manky.
What does she have to base that opinion on? I seriously wonder, I’m not being a wise guy. When has he ever said anything even close to savvy?
She hates FOX, loves the view girls....gets her news from the alphabet channels....lives in the past. She seems to have a hate on for conservatives, yet she is Catholic to the core, but does not vote on the abortion issue at all. What can more can I say?
The good news is, except for her two daughters, all 5 of her sons are conservative. Voting accordingly. Grandchildren are mostly conservative. Her husband was the pubbie in the family and he always said he had to get to voting booth to negate hers.
She gets seriously upset if we discuss politics with her, we start to panic watching her. We have learned NOT to discuss them with her anymore. Otherwise at 90 she still drives, lives in her own home, is organized...cooked dinner for over 20 on Thanksgiving. It’s just the political thing that sends her over the edge.
I think it’s wise not to discuss politics with her. When it gets down to core issues, I have friends of different political persuasions(not family) but it reveals what is really important to them.
I am reading her bit on the Immaculate Conception and roARing....she is GOOD!
Actually, she lives for her TV. Her husband has died, her children cannot be there 24/7...so it’s the TV and the core channels only. These are her daily friends and she thinks like them because she spends her days with them. She needs the world to come to her and it does...with Joy and Whoopi on the view and the newscasters she has always listened to. She even likes Ellen, my SIL is a lesbo, so that’s ok to her.
Now I have her youtube vids going while I cook and clean in the kitchen.
(Could she have been girl number two in the Page Six story????)
I have an earworm....”love is in the air....”....yeah the loveboat theme. A+++
You just described how I plan on spending my evening.
After the gym, that is. I really have to go because I now have some major work stress to work out.
I am listening to her series on Islam. She describes American doctors in Afghanistan who had the men bringing their wives to them to find out why they were not getting pregnant. After extensive testing there was nothing they could find wrong. They brought in female doctors who began asking the wives questions. Seems that they were ALL having anal sex. The men had no idea what sex with a woman was. Can you imagine a whole community of men who had never had normal vaginal sex and didn’t even know what it was? When they did learn what it was they were disgusted. Now that is evil.
Only in Kandahar and San Francisco
Seems to me, those women were trying to keep from bringing more jihadists into the world.
That’s...taking one for the team.
