Word For The Day, Monday, 1/30/12

;


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".

redound; verb [used without object]

1. to have a good or bad effect or result, as to the advantage or disadvantage of a person or thing. 2. to result or accrue, as to a person. 3. to come back or reflect upon a person as to honor or disgrace (usually followed by on or upon ).

Etymology: 1382, "to overflow," from O.Fr. redonder "overflow, abound" (12c.), from L. redundare "to overflow" (see redundant). Meaning "to flow or go back" (to a place or person) is from 1382; hence "to rebound" (c.1500), and "to contribute to" (the credit, honor, etc.), c.1500.

example: Thomas Hobbes Leviathan: "So that the effect which redounds to one man, by another man's defect of right, is but so much diminution of impediments to the use of his own right original."

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....

Ciao! If Soros is endorsing Romney, then we know exactly who the Dems want to run against. And it ain’t the redoubtable Newt. Concur, this redounds and smacks Romney in the face.

I just saw my neighbor's hunting dog wearing a Che t-shirt and putting an Obama 2012 sign in front of his doghouse while humming "Look for The Union Label."

Clearly, he's a redound

As economic disgraces redound
Barack’s supporters are claiming “rebound”
But unemployment’s a mess
And most are doing with less
All his solutions are more noise than sound

Newt Gingrich’s moon base proposal, in the face of an America becoming LAST in innovation, redounds to his honor.

http://economyincrisis.org/content/us-last-innovation-according-study

The ridicule of Newt’s proposal by the media, especially by Krauthammer, redounds to the media’s utter lack of credibility!!!!

Zounds!

Ole Mitty’s national repubbie “base” is so obviously the Washington establishment.

Since these same “Washington moderates” were defeated both before and after Reagan conservative victories in 1982 and 1988: in 1990 (Bush), 1994 (Dole), 2000 (almost! W. Bush), and 2006 (Pelosi’s victory) and 2008 (McCain), who suspects that Mitty’s handlers don’t believe the media won’t redound-double-down on him once nominated?

While walking to the car, I slipped and fell on the ice Sat. and my husband fell on top of me (I was holding on to him). The effects have redounded so that I cannot walk today and can type with only one hand. My husband is just fine. Is that fair? He saya his fall was broken by a big “pillow” — namely me! When I redound from this accident, I just might redound him in the nose for such comments!

OMG! Am I sore! Nothing broken except 2 fingernails which broke right across the middle. I was on my way to sort recall petitions against my Governor. I bled all over them which is significant.

oh you POOR THING! how dare he add insult to your injury! xshub knows someone “on the ground” in WI, involved in working with the recall, and his report was very optimistic at Gov Walker’s chances. xshub had asked him bc the MSM makes it sound like he’s a goner and this guy thinks he will be just fine.

I think he will be just fine too. But we also have to worry about the 6 senators they are trying to recall to take the majority back. They only need 1 Republican to fall.

I’m working on 2 different efforts to examine the petitions for errors that can be challenged. The Republican Party is running “Victory Centers” where we are hand sorting copies of the petitions looking for obvious errors. This will be optically scanned and sorted. The Tea Party is running an independent effort where we are entering each PRINTED name and address into a data base ourselves, just as it is written. We do this work from home. We have the opportunity to note whether the signature and the printed record match.

In addition, I delivered flyers Sat. morn for 3 school board candidates who are trying to bring reason to our out of control school board. We were just leaving lunch and were on our way to a Victory Center to sort petitions when I fell. Not a convenient time.

I went ahead to cover my shift, but I bled all over the petitions. I can now claim that I bled for my Governor, that’s how much I love him.

The Republicans have 5000+ people working at the Victory Centers and the Tea Party have 11,000+ entering names in a data base that will be searched 6 ways from Sunday to expose duplicates and other errors. The Tea Party has drawn volunteers from all over the country to help in their effort. Both groups are organized so that every petition is examined by at least 3 sets of eyes.

Marquette is in Michigan. We are in Wisconsin. We do have Marquette University here in Milwaukee, but none of our several Bishops have a Diocese named Marquette. And our captal is in Madison. All those “M” words make it confusing for those who don’t live here. LOL.

And Pere Marquette did discover this part of the country.

Yes. My husband and I did 200 at the Victory Center, and I did about another 100-150 on line at home. (2 different efforts)

The online effort is shut down for a couple of days until they release the gubenatorial petitons for examination. We finished a Senatorial recall petition in 2 days. At least 3 sets of eyes examined each signature.

There is an amazing number of people working on this challenge.
