Against this rogue nation
Or just b.s. and spin a story

As Tim Geithner lied before congress, one senator accused him of giving mendacious answers. Geithner frowned darkly and replied, “Would you prefer minacious answers? Because that’s what’s coming next.”

Obama’s minacious attack on the Catholic and Evangelical churches has backfired, although silver tongued, Cardinal designate Dolan still insists the dialogue is conciliatory. (read NOT!)

Huh....I would prefer the truth, can’t we just give them truth serum when they testify?

A....no pluses.....you used another word, though they mean the same. Minacious is much more common a word than minatory.

Minatory.

Definitely foreign so most rules don’t apply, minatory is one those real short Brit politicians of the Tory party (and from what I hear they can par—tee!)

Also when used in the byocidial field minatory can mean birds that fly south in the winter. Migratory birds get arrested and sent back home.

My DH took me out to dinner on Monday night, had to change all his plans to do it. I was on call last night. Then he came home last night with a card and candy. I am amazed.

i just want to go on the record and say that sex is not just for valentines day, and i feel sorry for the poor saps that wait for that day for that purpose ; ) i didn’t see xshub yesterday because he has biz people in town for a meeting today that he had to entertain last night. he asked me to go but i had no desire to be sociable with that group. we went to dinner on Sunday PM and he gave me a gift cert for a facial along with a very cute card. even xsgirls think val day is stupid. though xsjr was on CLOUD nine with her visit from slapshot, and xsteen got a very nice and meaningful valentine from someone also.

It isn’t a word you can find very easily because it’s a word liberal academia doesn’t like many to know. It doesn’t fit into the whole feminist ‘’women as victim/male as ‘’oppressors’’ ‘’misogynist’’ thing. Sorry, didn’t mean to be so...flinty. I thought your response as a bit patronizing but that was my mistake. Mea culpa.

Back in high school, DH and I started going together exclusively on that date, so it has a sort of anniversary theme to it for us.

It is 68 and the fog is beginning to lift-the contractor I work with is trapped indoors, miserable with allergies because everything early spring is beginning to bloom, so one estimate was all the work I had today.

I’m making a conscious effort to spend a great deal of time each day hiking in the woods among the blooming vegetation so that I don’t have adverse reactions to it-I’ve been doing it for years and it works for me.

All the minatory growling
From Obama and his bunch
Failed to stop the Bishops
From delivering a big punch

Then he tried to placate them
By playing a transparent game
It only made everyone angrier
And Obama seen more to blame

No one is about to shut up now-
He can forget his Marxist goals
It looks like he may end up out
Because of a battle over souls
