Word For The Day, Monday, 3/25/12
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".
1. to grow or develop quickly; flourish: The town burgeoned into a city. He burgeoned into a fine actor. 2. to begin to grow, as a bud; put forth buds, shoots, etc., as a plant (often followed by out, forth ).
Etymology: 12751325; (noun) Middle English burjon, burion; shoot, bud < Anglo-French burjun, burg ( e ) on; Old French burjon < Vulgar Latin *burriōne ( m ), accusative of *burriō, derivative of Late Latin burra wool, fluff (compare bourrée , bureau), presumably from the down covering certain buds; (v.) Middle English burg ( e ) onen, borgen < Anglo-French, Old French, derivative of the noun
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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Cherry blossoms are burgeoning in DC

No pushing at the door please!
And obamacare arguments are set to begin burgeoning in the Supreme Court in a bit.
Obama is rapidly burgeoning into a first class race pimp!
There is a burgeoning movement to impeach obama.
When buying votes, Barry goes splurgin’
Makes the trillion debt deficit burgeon
But when oil’s in sight
His purse strings stay tight
And he cuts like a mad little surgeon
anyone who wants to follow someone on twitter re; obamacare arguments— @philipklein is going to tweet updates as he can during breaks from inside the courtroom. He’s a senior writer for the Washington Examiner.
A+++ there’s nothing left to say about that obamanation in the WH.
if i had a son, he’d look like TRAYVAN! A+++ my head nearly exploded when he said that.
A+++ i wish it luck!
A+++ $ is no object with campaign, clearly. and let’s build that bottom half of the pipeline, connected up to NOTHING.
it all has to be about him, the malignant narcissist in chief.
doubtful they’d even permit him a new heart at age 71, likely they’d deem him more than half dead by then. A+++
I am burgeoning. Thank you pizza and chocolate ice cream.
No, there isn’t. There is an election coming up, though. I’d put my effort into that.
You sure you have that Twitter name right? I checked @philipklein and he has never tweeted anything. Zero tweets.
sorry! the bold name is listed as philip klein but the twitter name is @philipaklein
that’s very good and should get extra points for the guns n roses song title.
“I had to put her
Six feet under
And I can still hear her complain”
I was hoping you’d be there to tweet to us.
There are not many seats and you can bet they were jockied for in a serious kind of way. heck there are 35+ amica there. I would love to hear what’s going on.
when we were coming back from Boston yesterday AM, and walking off the plane in Reagan, we passed Paul Ryan heading home after doing the Sunday chat shows. he’s taller than i thought. nice looker though!
And would his son have been suspended from school for 10 days for attacking his school bus driver too?
has that come out on TRAYVAN also? this is such a Bonfire of the Vanities moment, i am sure he was an HONOR STUDENT, rme.
Rumor and speculation are swirling around like two large swirling things.
The bottom line is that this Zimmerman is a poor poster child for the 2nd amendment. I can’t condone his actions.
Check the article in my post, if Zimmerman was on the ground being beat up when he shot him, what do you think then? Hmm?
I am staying out of this one entirely. Too fishy. Never saw a kid shot who wasn’t the most innocent kid alive. They never really are.
Yes it has come out. I’m not sure if he was wearing a hoodie at the time. I’ll leave that to the media who are such good researchers and vetters.
Probably true, but we don’t know how that came to be the situation.
That he was getting his butt kicked doesn’t mean that he didn’t start the confrontation.
Certainly if you begin an incident, you can’t then shoot someone and claim self-defense.
and Zimmerman, despite the white sounding name is Latino. the race pimps are portraying him as white. well, he’s not the white racist poster boy either.
Did you see his police report log?
I like these:
36. April 22, 2011 7:09 p.m.
Subject: Suspicious activity
Report: Juvenile black male apprx 79 years old, four feet tall skinny build short blk hair last seen wearing a blue t-shirt and blue shorts
43. Jan. 29, 2012 5:38 p.m.
Report: Children running and playing in the street
Yeah, I know he is “Hispanic.” He also seemed to regard black males as inherently suspicious.
Yeah, I saw that, but there is also info that when attacked he was returning to his car and was attacked from behind. Just saw a friend of his who is a well known TV reporter who is black and is standing up for Zimmerman. All that has come out for weeks has been info favorable to Trayvon, now the other side of the story is emerging. Wait and see is all I have to say.
Again, he has had black friends coming forward to dispute that. Wait and see.
facts of the case are to me less relevant than the manipulation of the situation by the race pimps. alteration of photos/facts about the kid to make him LOOK innocent, younger, lighter etc. not mentioning that zimmerman is NOT WHITE but hispanic himself, to make this look like a white on black crime etc. SPIKE LEE tweeting out zimmerman’s home address, inciting retribution against him, and the Black Panther party putting a $10k bounty on zimmerman’s head. THAT is what i find noteworthy.
Spike Lee is a racist pig. That was appalling. IF Zimmerman is killed I want to see Lee in jail.
Well, we will never know the full story because one of the participants is dead.
We also know had he simply waited for police instead of chasing that no one would be dead.
This type of story also brings out the worst in many FReepers.
I read Hollywood Hypocrites and Spike Lee was one of the featured “stars”. LOL Funny book.
Sure, that’s all ugly.
So is the idea that Zimmerman is some sort of hero for self-defense.
now I KNOW you are not saying that was my worse. LOL
Those trees are gorgeous!
And Michelle prefers those eggs of sturgeon.....
Present company excluded, of course. ;-)
You know what I mean. People that throw around terms like “hood-rat” and other thinly veiled racial references.
I asked and got no answers on a thread about what we would all say if Zimmerman reported a blonde girl as “suspicious” and she ended up dead.
Would we all feel the same?
“Certainly if you begin an incident, you cant then shoot someone and claim self-defense.”
Thank you, Dave, for summing up my feelings on this.
Oh my gosh - great article. I had to read it to my husband I thought it was so funny
