Word For The Day, Wednesday, January 16, 2013-- intestate
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".
intestate [in-tes-teyt, -tit]
hear it pronounced
1. (of a person) not having made a will: to die intestate.
2. (of things) not disposed of by will: Her property remains intestate.
3. a person who dies intestate.
Origin: late 14c., from L. intestatus "having made no will," from in- "not" + testatus, pp. of testari "make a will, bear witness" (see testament).
Related forms: in'testacy -noun
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.
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
We ain’t getting out that easy.
We are going to suffer.
With the help of a compliant media, the lib playbook is working like a charm. To wit:
Megastorm Sandy caused megabucks in damages, and it is obvious to all that massive relief funds are needed. So, the dems put up a relief bill that is laden with pork, putting the republicans into the usual quandary—damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.
If republicans trash the bill because of the un-Sandy-like extras the dems put in, the media will show poor, newly homeless people in NY or NJ who are unable to get assistance because republicans won’t sign off on the bill.
If republicans go along with the bill, they are contributing to an ever-increasing deficit, and aiding liberal strongholds such as unions and the environmental whackos.
Our side never seems to learn how the game is played. We keep bringing a knife to a gunfight, keep playing checkers while they are playing chess. Just once, I’d like to hold up a democrat-favored bill (how about the increase in the debt ceiling?) by sticking in a poison pill such as, oh, I don’t know—making Voter IDs mandatory.
exactly. our side is completely ineffectual.
no one knows that. there is extensive pre-trib/post-trib eschatology and it’s all conjecture. Only God knows the date and the time, and it could be any time. Besides its the protestants that go around the bend with the pre-post trib stuff!
Since you asked...That came from our local bartender who happens to be profoundly blind. No worries though, he swears he can tell the difference between the drinks by putting his finger into the liquid and by all accounts he’s right well accurate.
Now the more fastidious reader might say this is “unsanitary” but the barkeep has very clean hands despite working at the garage and putting in cheap pace makers during the day.
Besides, he licks the booze off between drinks.
Whatever you’re drinking, I’ll have one, too.
The mass of people without end-of-life documents find themselves on the intestate highway
And the toll on the intestate highway is going up.
“Since I have no assets”
Checked your homepage.
You got a boss guitar, a big sword and a ton of heart and style, sister.
You are as rich as they come.
You are a sweetheart.
I love your screen name...It was my Daddy’s Nickname...can you believe it?
A couple of more years of Liberals Gone Wild might finally get this country to bottom out, like a drunk waking up from a two-week bender, and give us the will to head in the opposite direction. By that time, however, in many areas we will be so far past the point of no return that no rehab would be possible.
Sunny and 39-still no work, but nothing is going to happen that is good in the midst of the chaos-
Obama keeps channeling Nixon-
The reason is anyone’s guess
No “king” has died intestate
And left us all with a mess
Like Nixon, he has caused it
With his thirst for control
But neither of them thought
Beyond that self serving goal
We’ll be better if he resigns
Like Nixon did, we’d be ahead-
Instead of having royal rule
We’d have interregnum instead
I think it’s like the family that knows bankruptcy is inevitable. So they go on a cruise, buy some new clothes, etc.
we will all die intestate
while rich libs live behind a gate
voting themselves raises
exchanging adoring gazes
not a care for America’s fate.
Woman driver alert.
STUPIDITY knows no gender!
True. I believe it was Japanese men who flew to Augusta, Maine and were looking for the famous golf club.
