Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Boston mayor declares Chickfila anathema. Is he going to try to throw the CATHOLIC CHURCH out of town as well? because they share the same views. For the record, we are trying to increase our patronage of Chickfila precisely because of their views. xshub ate there this weekend. We like it anyway, but we want to show them increased support.

Since the 2008 Election, anyone who supported Obama has become an anathema to me.

I will Not fake civility to anyone who has helped bring about the destruction of my beloved country.

RomnyCARE/ObamaCARE is an ANATHEMA to the American public.

The absence of a MANDATE for healthcare
by someone, somewhere, somehow,
is an anathema to Mr. RomneyCARE.

The chosing of Mr. RomneyCARE to represent the GOPe
at the very time RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE is an anathema
to the vast majority of the American public is nothing
but a cruel anathema by the GOPe and MSM
upon conservatives and the American
people, who are now void of any real choice.

BEHOLD the Happiest Moment in the GOPe Candidate's life:
The Moment of Imposition of Statism and DEATH PANELS forever
and soon, for all - An anathema cubed, put in by Tyrants.


The absence of a MANDATE for healthcare

We also like Chick Fil A because their employees are clean-cut and speak English.

A+++ i honestly do not understand how they think laws are going to prevent things like this from happening. it makes ZERO sense. a madman intent on carnage is going to bring it about regardless of what laws are extant.

They are the only chain in our area where suburban teenagers can get a job. AND they close on sundays. I think Truett Cathy deserves kudos. and there is not a piece of chicken on this planet that tastes better than one of their nuggets.

There is a Chick-Fil-A in Coral Springs, my new home town.

Chick-Fil-A has become an anathema in my OLD Home Town, because they espouse the attributes of Free Enterprise, Family Values, and Hard Work.

Boston has now become an Anathema to ME!

Their Mayor, Tom Menino, has been in office for nearly twenty years. He has decided to ban Chick-Fil-A from the city because he claims they are “unfair” to homosexuals.

The city itself, though, is quite lovely.

January 21, 2013 will mark the day when the anathema which has led this nation to the brink of destruction will finally be extirpated from the body politic like a disemboguing excrescence.

No, i saw that and it’s lamentable, that’s why i said what i did about him also banning the catholic church, since the church holds the same views. The Freedom Trail is def worth seeing! My family made such fun of me bc i was intent on seeing the liberty tree. we found that all that’s left is a plaque commemorating where it stood, in Boston Common. i made do with that ; )

Obama, my all-time anathema
You speak, I develop arrhythmia
Each syllable’s sounding
Increases the pounding
Thou demon, thou horror: thou hath a ma?

Amen to that, ML!

The felons and maggots who constitute the Obama Regime, along with their fellow travelers, aiders and abeters, and the pathetic RINO's who lack the intestinal fortitude to prevent the destruction they are causing are anathema to me.

I want the American Nation of my youth back, strong, brave and free!!!

where is port of spain? we are leaving for Amelia Island, FL tomorrow. xshub has lead me to believe that we were leaving Weds AM. I told them at work i could work a half day tommorow, bc i have a brief due out the day i get back to the ofc, the 30th. So just now he got the 24 hour prior to flight, US Air flight confirmation etc. and he forwards it to me saying we leave TOMORROW, not WEDS. I know he was confused himself, but still!

The city itself, though, is quite lovely.

Only if you don't mind taking your life in your hands crossing the street. Never, never look a Massachusetts driver in the eye. He'll aim right towards you. And don't accept a ride from anybody named Kennedy, either.
