Word For The Day, Monday, 2/11/13

;


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".

cacophony; noun

1. harsh discordance of sound; dissonance: a cacophony of hoots, cackles, and wails. 2. a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds: the cacophony produced by city traffic at midday. 3. Music. frequent use of discords of a harshness and relationship difficult to understand.

Etymology: 1650s, from Gk. kakophonia, from kakophonos "harsh sounding," from kakos "bad, evil" (see caco-) + phone "voice" (see fame). Related: Cacophonous.

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....

The Anointed One is nothing more than a caca phoney!



Keep Faith with the Fallen of Benghazi! Let the Obama Regime, for once, tell the Truth!

Fiat Justitia, Ruat Coelum!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Good morning. The so called storm of the century was over the next morning. We kept to our Saturday routine. This morning they were threatening “ice storm”....yeah, a few minutes of freezing rain without any car accidents. School buses were on time. The frozen tundra is just another day in paradise. I do feel bad for those who lost power, though. Too cold for that.

Among the cacophony of Pope jokes, shock and news...Brett Baier said that the white smoke beats Ohio in picking a new Pope. I have to agree. Obama’s SOTU speech not the talk of the day, the Pope upstaged him.

And furthermore, as long as we're on the subject of you-know-what, here's another thought as to the Anointed One:

"Hie thee to hell for shame, and leave the world, Thou cacodemon! There thy kingdom is."

(Richard III, Act I, Scene 3)

When Reagan spoke, I heard a symphony
From Obama, merely cacophony
Deflection and lies
His favorite disguise
For increasing his left-wing hegemony

like i said the rabid anti-Papists on FR are doing so as well. does not reflect well on their supposed Christianity. Guess their moms never taught them that if you can’t say something nice... SHUT THE HECK UP.

the Pope Benedict XVI has named a lot of new Cardinals....I imagine they are more conservative, as he is. the Conclave should be interesting.

I heard Cardinal Dolan is one of the leading contenders for Pope......though they said his being American is a major negative. We shall see. I believe we have never had an Asian Pope...hmm.

I hear you, there are certainly more conservative Bishops...I suspect they will go the traditional route with a European Pope. I am still waiting for a new bishop. Will he leave it to the next Pope or name one this month?

I read that the bookmakers in England have the $ on a 65 yo African Cardinal from Ghana. Africa would be good, bc i think they are very conservative.

I have heard already that there is an African and Asian both as top contenders. Both very conservative. Much more likely than an American.

In all the history i have read of the Borgia popes etc. with them needing taste-testers for food etc. if it’s as cut-throat as it was back in those days.

Thank you for saying that! I swear you would have thought the NE was getting 5 feet of snow instead of 36 inches. Even a transplant totally unused to more than a few inches of snow handled the snowfall we got once at 36 inches. I don’t recall any declaration of emergency or need for Federal help - it’s not like they never get snow in that area and don’t know what to do.
