Word For The Day, November 20, 2012
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. something that a person cannot conquer, achieve, etc.
2. an opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome
3. ( initial capital letter ) Classical Mythology . the goddess of divine retribution.
4. an agent or act of retribution or punishment.
[< Latin < Greek némesis literally, a dealing out, verbid of némein to dispense (justice); see -sis ]
For my Jayhawks, who met their nemesis Friday night in a semifinal game and got pushed around all up and down the field in a mercy-rule shutout, a little Dire Straits:
Unless the American people wake up soon, the Obama Regime will prove to be the Nation’s nemesis and undoing.
My prayer is that Lt. Col/Congressman West will arise as the Nemesis of the Election-Stealers.
I’ve become quite nostalgic; I reminisce
Of days when self-reliance was the emphasis
Now it’s all “What is fair”
Make the rich pay their share
While the socialists rule as our nemesis
Amen to that, XS!
I had a medical condition I couldn’t overcome after days of uncomfortability. I went to the hospital and they gave me a couple of nemesis. Do I win?
haha!we are def on the same wavelength!
the colonel is no quitter, he knows he was robbed, he will be back!
The stupid. It hurts.
i saw that Fox has a special on 12/21/12 i need to watch and make my preparations. it’s our only hope!
He is a great man and a fervent patriot. I visited his website a couple of days ago and read his bio. Most impressive.
SMOD* now more than ever.

i know none of you watch Oreilly, but last night it was pretty apparent that both Bill and Dennis Miller are upset/depressed about the election results. Oreilly nearly bit MK Hammer’s head off [i’m going to have to check twitter, she HAD to have been Pd O at the tone he took with her] and Miller was not one bit funny, he was serious as a heart attack. It was pretty disconcerting since i have been feeling the same way. The wife of one of my coworkers worked at the WH on obamacare. I was talking to the woman whose ofc is next to mine and she calls out to Jonathon as he was passing by to say DID YOU GET TO MEET HIM? he comes to the doorway and proceeds to relate how he met obama when he accompanied his wife on her exit interview etc. i could not even feign interest so i basically stared at the floor until the exchange was over, expressionless and silent. if there had been a way out of the room without barreling past him, i would have taken it. it was positively painful. he’s a nice enough guy and wasn’t being obnox about it at all, but the mere topic of conversation had me ready to jump out of my skin.
MC Hammer was on O’Reilly?
MK Hammer and Juan Williams are on frequently together. @MKhammer is her twitter handle as you know.
