Flags in the Dust, one of William Faulkner’s beginning novels, has a chapter “Ambuscade”.

Which class to attend? Tioga has another thread going aleady.

Obama’s ambuscade on gun control will allow him to erase restrictions on the debt limit, open the borders to illegal immigrants, and allow Obamacare to proceed unhampered while we are distracted, clinging to our guns.

2. to lie in ambush. verb (used with object) 3. to attack from a concealed position; ambush.

Odd that a lawyer would select a word so aptly representing lawyers chasing behind patients to the hospital .... 8<)

Discussing Common Sense with a liberal is impossible, as one is deluged with an ambuscade of memorized talking points.

Obama’s big tax ambuscade
Gets folks angry whenever they’re paid
Well ain’t it a bitch
That it ain’t just the rich
Who are seeing their take-home pay fade?

Looks like we have two words today. I like yours better.

So Senator Schmuck Chumer (Dumbass - NY), tried to provide some cover to the ambuscade on our gun rights by writing a thoughtful letter to the CEO's of several sporting goods and outdoor retailers asking them to suspend sales of semi-automatic rifles that look scary while the gun-grabbers have a conversation about protecting our children. Well, isn't that just so sweet.

I decided to help the CEO's out by writing a response for them, which they are all free to reuse as they see fit. (posted at #78)

Ha! Dueling WFTD threads!

Xsmommy's artful ambuscade of Tioga's thread is solidly within the tradition of peculation that distinguishes our so-called public servants.

The ungrateful shelter cat loves to plan and execute the perfect ambuscade against the dogs here. But is there anything funnier than a cat missing the mark completely and attempting to walk it off while everyone is laughing?

how not to throw a baby shower. or baby either for that matter.

“I didn’t even get to cut the cake,” lamented Depina, who is eight months pregnant with her first child, a daughter, and was celebrating with 180 guests, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. with a cash bar

Ooh-two neat words-

Obama’s minions peculate from
Even the poor who have jobs-
Anyone with a paycheck now
Joins all us that he robs

It was taken by an ambuscade,
Their attention stolen away
With a promise of free goodies-
Now instead, they have to pay

I really don’t have much sympathy-
They’ve brought it on themselves
Now they know what happens to those
Who believe in socialist elves...

Hope the preparation for your starring role are going well...

oh you missed the news on Friday? the 6th Cir issued a decision in my case just based on the briefs, but didn’t bother to let me know until the decision was out. no matter, i won the case and don’t have to go, so all’s well that ends well!

The media’s ambuscade in 2004 and 2008, where they refused to vet obama but pushed his candidacy instead, left us STUCK with a bad-apple President for at least 8 years!!!!

Sort of like this:
