Posted on 05/18/2012 5:18:06 AM PDT by tioga
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.
pellucidity, pellucidness noun
[Latin pellcidus, from pellcre, to shine through : per-, through; see per- + lcre, to shine; see leuk- in Indo-European roots.]
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....

Only 172 days till we vote the amateur out of office. Get up, get busy! All hands on deck.
Not to be confused with Pelosid, which doesn’t make any sense at all!
Since it is Commando Friday, I have chosen to wear pellucid garments.
Obama promised us the most pellucid administration in U.S. history. I think he meant “polluted.” As in corrupt.
Why you loose piece of change!
LOL We are polluted with libs who don’t care if O was born in Kenya or not. Scary. A++
Welp, I don’t think it proves anything about where he was born, but it does indicate a certain willingness to push whatever narrative about himself that would give him the most advantage during any point in his life. As someone pointed out on twitter, when that bio was published in 1991, there was no interwebs for some lowly assistant to go trolling for bios. That publisher got that info from the source, or, at the very least, he (Obama) had to have approved it before it was published. A writer born in Kenya sounds much more exotic.
I think Obama has been patterning his life after Zelig.
No matter how pellucid or erudite the conservative position may be, the liberal mindset refuses to entertain even the thought of understanding it.
Well, look at you strutting your stuff. I see the guys followed you into class. A++
Cause they don’t think, they feeeeeeeeeel.
“Let me be pellucid” said the man
whose natal narrative isn’t so clear.
Elizabeth Warren’s pellucid
Take your c.v. and then goose it
Use the Cherokee Nation
To gain Harvard station
Affirmative Action? Abuse it
A+++ those two deserve each other.
A++ O’s not worthy to tie RR’s shoelaces, wherever he was born.
A++ O’s got some ‘splainin’ to do, as Ricky Ricardo would say.
Truth is truth, unless you are a lib...then it’s whatever you want it to be. A++
I am striving to make my writing more pellucid.
Accordingly, I have started a story about an enormous cavern, where ancient life forms still wander about.
At this point I want irrefutable proof one way or the other. SCOTUS let us down. Someone owes us the truth in all this mess.
Making a rare pellucid appearance on FR. Hi everyone!
Hey there. Haven’t seen you in class in AGES.
cue the Welcome Back Kotter intro....
Off for my morning walk. Listening to Tyranny of Cliches...Jonah awaits me. Can’t keep him waiting.
whoa, I had not seen that one. From his own mouth.
Interesting that the Wright saga is off the table, I could give a spit about the sermons, but did he actually accept 150Gs to stop preaching until the election? Remeber, the coverup is always worse than the crime. And from whence did that moola come?
So we all agree that the truth of Obama’s birth is pellucid, if you look at all the evidence: multiple news reports over the years; statements from his step-grandmother; statements from Michelle; statements from himself. But, what do you call the people who refuse to see it? Stupid?
Pellucid - anything horrible. It is a combination of Pelosi and putrid.
“The neighbor’s dog ate a dead squirrel and left a pellucid pile on my front lawn.”
I thought Wright refused the money.
It wasn’t clear to me. Nonetheless, I think it matters that it was even offered.
Pelosi’s House was anything but pellucid.
very very good!
Pelousy is pellucid all right. We can see through her bull. A++
If she stretches her skin anymore, it will be so pellucid that we will see Nancy’s brains. Well, assuming she has any, and isn’t really a zombie impersonator.
Pellucid- those rare moments where Nancy Pelosi briefly snaps out of that liberal dementia she is always wandering around in.
“She is experiencing a pellucid interval”.
Clearly pellucid is a pane.
I poached eggs just now and new dog and little dog loved them. New dog actually knows how to roll over. Someone spent a lot of time with him. He is a quick learner too since my youngest taught him kennel the other day in about 15 minutes. He still would love to chase and bite the cat so we’ll work on that some more today.
Missed that quote from Van Jones. About time someone on the left questioned Holder’s incompetency. A+++
Another day, another attempt to make money that isn’t there-thanks, Obama...
With Obama and his enemies list
He’s channeling Nixon’s mind
And those who give him cover
Are getting harder to find
The good Rev Wright is talking
About the money and the blunder
Pissed about being silenced and
The bus he was thrown under
If it all becomes as pellucid
As glass, it won’t be pretty-
Axelrod and Holder may be called
The new Haldeman and Liddy
Georgetown needs an exorcist.
The message is pellucid: This guy attracts more weirdos than Facebook.
A+++ Excellent as usual.
Gorgeous day here. Sunny, cool breeze for my morning walk. Nice. Except my MP3 player died and I had to finish my walk without Jonah.
The Vatican has allowed the image of Catholic universities to be demeaned for decades. Not sure they can help at this point.
More elitist Hollyweirdos who want to run our country into the ground. Thanks, but NO thanks. A+++
