Word For The Day, Thursday, June 21, 2012 - divulse
dictionaries ad nauseam | 21 June 2012 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 06/21/2012 4:49:30 AM PDT by secret garden


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".

divulse \dahy-VUHLS\, verb
To tear away or apart.

Example sentences:
A perforation having been so made, it is safer to divulse the opening rather than to enlarge it by cutting in order to avoid the possibility of opening a blood vessel in an inaccessible region.
-- Eugene Fuller, M.D., The Journal of the American Medical Association

Even if you are the kooper of the winkel over measure never lost a license. Nor a duckindonche divulse from bath and breakfast.
-- James Joyce, Finnegans Wake

Etymology:
Divulse comes from the Latin root vellere meaning "plucked". The prefix di- is a variation of dis- before the letter v meaning "apart" or "away", as in disown.

The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

ODrama and his minions fear that to divulse the inner workings of Fast & Furious will result in the Congress divulging their foolish actions resulting in an untold number of deaths.

“Divulse” is when you die, but your body is still convulsing.

A+ for you. I don't know if they'd rather talk about the 2nd amendment or the economy so it may be a campaign ploy to distract from other, more important issues.

Obama never has had trouble divulsing money. He spent tax payer money that he didn't have. In May he spent more than he took in in contributions to his cause. I hope he has untold debt when he leaves office, since this country will.

Obama's bank balance stays flat in May.

The left and the right, I convulse

In Wisconsin both the Teachers’ Unions and the Public Sector Unions have lost more than half their members since the Walker reforms went into effect. Furthermore, those unions have had to dismiss half of their highly paid, permanent staffs.

while i am gratified that Romney is going with guns blazing, i can’t say i am going to LOVE the election season, it’s far too nervewracking. i was behind a car pulling into my parking garage yesterday that had TWO “I SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA” bumperstickers, an OBAMA 2012 bumper sticker and assorted other local political stickers one for Tim Kaine, dem of VA. Now you can say that it’s different where you live and that’s true, but TN is not going to win the election for Romney, whereas VA is pivotal, and the nutball with all of those bumperstickers had VA plates. i hope against hope that people know what is going on. I talked with a colleague yesterday here who voted for Obams but he’s not a leftist nutball. He said that Obams wasn’t all he was cracked up to be, and that he really didn’t care if he was re-elected. I suppose i should ask if he will vote for him again. we spoke of the dreck on both sides and i said, Mike, you are a grownup, you know NO ONE is all that and 10 bags of chips in life, so why were you taken in by the cult of personality. he had no answer for me.

You are surrounded by govt employees, not known for leaning Republican. Big govt is good for them but outside of the NoVA bubble, I think we have a very good shot.

Nope. 8<)

I'm on the beach on the Spanish Riviera (at the fishing/tourist port called Cambrils) and the rain is regularly falling on the hills and mountains right behind me.

Literally - I'm off the beach by 1 block on the 4th floor and am watching the boats go by outside right now. 6:00 pm Spanish time. The power plant is also right on the beach about 20 km south.

And it’s my opinion that anyone who voted for obama IS a leftist nutball. There would have been no other reason to vote for him with the agenda he was promoting.

NoVA is far more populous than the rest of this swing state, and there have been articles to that effect here recently. i am not saying that we don’t have a good shot, but it is NOT going to be a cakewalk. OH is another swing state that is not a sure thing and it’s not govt employees driving that particular bus.

Misguided white guilt, blacks who were voting for THEIR man— not hard core leftist idealogues. Generally people are not LOOKING at agendas. we do, we are politically aware and informed, that is not the norm in life. The vast majority of people just do not give a crap about the big picture. they are looking at THEIR own interests. Last time they figured obams was going to get us out of the mess, this time, HOPEFULLY they see that he has made the mess worse and will not vote for a continuation. And if they just STAY HOME it’s fine with me, bc conservatives will crawl through raging fire, broken glass and HABOOBS to vote agin him!

Ohio is union-heavy, that’s their problem. I like the fact that all the states that leaned heavily toward obama have had significant economic woes since the election. Serves them right. Or left...

Unions are most def the problem. The question is will the union members vote against a democrat. my father was a union dem and i can tell you he would NEVER vote for a republican, the best i could have hoped for with him was that he would stay home. I still maintain he would have stayed home in 08, but it may very well be that the union had him voting for Obams from the grave.
