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".
adjective not to be disputed or contested.
Etymology: 152535; < Late Latin irrefragābilis, equivalent to Latin ir- ir-2 + refragā ( rī ) to resist, oppose + -bilis -ble
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.
That Libya should be Obam's donnybrook is irrefragable.

No pushing at the door please!
Better late than never. Windows 2010 remains a mystery to me, as it was installed before i left and i have no idea where anything is on my work computer. Thanks to ti and truthy for their assistance. i am discombobulated this AM.
The Lame Stream Media would have us believe that anything Obama says or does is irrefragable.
A+++ hopefully more people than are responding to the polls are seeing that so that the margin of victory will be great enough to offset the fraud.
Let us hope that the election results are irrefragable as I just couldn’t handle a replay of 2000.
from Your Lips to God’s ears.
I saw a report last night that two different tv stations ran the election results with obama beating Romney across the bottom of their screens this past Friday. Have you heard anything about that?
I guess your old hard disk was irdefragable.
Dorothy Rabinowitz has a column in the WSJ today listing a compendium of events in this administration that should be irrefragable. However, Obama’s minions just explain them away by denying that they happened. Rabinowitz used an example from a 1960s era Walter Mathau movie “A Guide for the Married Man” where mathau is caught in bed with a paramour by his angry wife, and he pretends that the woman is not there. Brilliant allusion to Benghazi in the last debate!
Before the regular NFL officials returned, the coaches were warned that the replacement refs decisions were irrefragable.
I say let's fly him back to Kenya to spend his new found "extra time" being his own brothers keeper instead of the keeper for 47% of the gimme voters in this country.......
O is up or tied with R in the Ohio polls, but those are undersampling Republican turnout.
Your 3 keys for watching Ohio on election night:
1. the four swing counties: watch Lake, Wood, Hamilton, & Columbiana. Lake will have the earlies and absentees calculated by 7:35 pm on their website, and they’ll wind up mirroring the state to being about +2% for R from the state total.
2. The Blue Menace: Can R keep the margin of loss in Cuyahoga county (greater Cleveland) below 200k if so, it looks good.
3. The Red Southwest: Can he win Butler, Hamilton, Claremont, and Warren (this is greater Cincinnati) by 150k if so it should be good for a win.
excellent article! A+++
I sympathize with you. I had to install Win2010 on my lap top because I needed to produce a document when I was out in CA. It is quite different from previous iterations of Windows.
What’s even worse is switching to Apple. I was helping a friend last week on her Mac (she knows nothing about computers, but daughter has left for college and she needed something to be done).
I was filling out a form and decided to move a paragraph from one section to another. I hit the trusty Ctrl C to copy and Ctrl V to paste. The whole thing disappeared. Naturally I couldn’t remember what I’d written previously. Then I tried to save it — quite different from Windows. By this time I was really nervous, and I saved it, but left it onthe screen. Her husband will put it in an email for distribution when he gets home.
Boy, did I feel dumb!
they are beyond hopeless. i suppose Bob Schieffer will be a willing accomplice in that charade tonight. A+++
oh i’m sure there’s plenty of that.
oh Lord no! A+++
saw that too, a CBS affiliate in AZ i think it was. that’s just dandy. what possible explanation could there be for such a thing to be in existence. someone should be up their behinds sideways looking for an answer to that!
You've brought back a memory to me: "Aaaaaaaaaaarrrrgghhhh!"
43 to 40? I don't think third parties are going to get 17% of the vote.
There was also a station in the north somewhere (Ohio or Illinois maybe) that did the same thing. My guess is they are getting the graphics ready for election night and plugging in the names and fake numbers to check for spacing, etc and some dufus inserted it accidentally
Dorothy Rabinowitz is good. Glad someone has captured that down the rabbithole feeling! A+++
thanks for that, i NEVER would have imagined it pronounced that way.
A+++ has it made a difference?
According to rabid environmentalists, the “fact” that hydraulically-assisted mining techniques are dangerous is irrefrackable...
i totally agree with you! A+++
saw over the weekend that Romney moved campaign staff to PA, which has to be a positive sign.
we went from Windows 2003 directly to 2010! kind of a seismic shift! my younger daughter has a macbook i have never tried to do anything on it, but i know that you have to backspace to delete just like on all apple products and that’s inconvenient to me! i’d rather highlight and hit delete.
Yes. But don’t let the facts get in the way of a good outrage. ;-)
Did you watch the game last night? What kind of idiot challenges a 1 yard pass play that results in a 3rd and 6?
A Bengals coach.
OMG you live in upstate NY you must know FRACKING is of Satan! A+++
Stay dead my friend, no need to vote this year.
I am praying.
Yes. I’m Office 2003 at work and at home, except for the laptop which has the student verson of Office 2010. I said Win2010 before. That is not correct. My laptop is Win7. My other computers are WinXP (I think). Change has always been seamless, but I understand Win8 is a real jolt. I think I’ll skip it, as I skipped Win2000 and a few other versions. I went directly from Win98 to WinXP and couldn’t tell the difference, for the most part.
But, I don’t like this Office 2010 very much. Too many options. I don’t use it often because I use the laptop mostly for email and surfing the web, so I am not conversant in it. I haven’t mastered the learning curve.
I didn’t watch the game last night. I watched Houston at noon, and switched back and forth hoping to see Scam Newton beaten...he pouts like Vince Young on the sidelines when he is losing so I expect him to have a breakdown like vincy did. My daughter and her husband (still seems weird to write that) came over for our usual Sunday dinner and we watched a movie instead of the game.
That was a fun game, watching the Ravens get spanked.
I can’t get too excited. I am focused like a laser on the debate tonight. Was visiting a friend and she can’t decide between Obama and Romney. Doesn’t believe Romney cares about the poor. Her husband, my husband and I just stared in disbelief. I tried to reason with her but quickly gave up.
ask her what OBAMA is doing for the POOR since the price of gas has doubled under his administration, the # of people receiving foodstamps has skyrocketed and the price of groceries goes up every time you set foot in the store. how could ROMNEY do worse than what obama has done.
just had the paralegal in here for a half an hour discussing the election. she missed me last week like crazy since she’s had no one to discuss the second debate and the other stuff with. She won’t watch the debate either, she gets too nervous, like me. so she said she will instead go to target or walmart after work to get 2016 and watch that instead and then tune in to hear the results after the fact.
were those homemade tshirts???? and are they from Long Island, bc i know that NYers from that area do pronounce the word FORWARD as FO-WARD.
They misspelled coward.
Owe-bama voters sure are smat!
