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".

arrogate; verb

verb (used with object), ar·ro·gat·ed, ar·ro·gat·ing. 1. to claim unwarrantably or presumptuously; assume or appropriate to oneself without right: to arrogate the right to make decisions. 2. to attribute or assign to another; ascribe.

Etymology: 1530s, from L. arrogatus, pp. of arrogare "to claim for oneself" (see arrogance).

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.

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Amusing how the MSM is attempting to arrogate the title of "head of the GOP" to various people, without having the slightest idea of who actual republicans might view as their head.

We get the words from “Aragon”, an aristocratic family from Renaissance Spain whose family pride was so obnoxious that we now have several new words in our vocabulary based on their behavior.

Imagine being immortalized in that manner! LOL!

I just noticed the Latin origins as well. Yet, I was always taught that the word “Arrogant” can from the Spanish Family.

W.S. Gilbert must have also thought the same, as in the Opera “Patience” the Soldier sings of:

“The Family Pride of a Spaniard from Aragon”.

Very Interesting.....

you will have to resubmit the homework, ARROGATE is a verb, ARROGANT may have been what you were looking for there?

Barack, and his mainstream surrogate
Have conspired, so that he can arrogate
All three branches of gov
And the morons just love
That the “journalists” never interrogate

A+++ i heard on the drivetime radio this AM, a guy called in who coaches his 6th grade daughter’s rec league basketball team, that they played Sasha’s team this past Sat AM and the ONE was there in all his splendor adorned with copious SS agents, to just be a regular dad and cheer on his daughter. This guy said, i didn’t vote for the guy but it was pretty wild meeting him, he was def starstruck. i have to say, confronted with the same situation, i do not think i could do it. i couldn’t shake his hand and be fake nice to him.

I thought they might have had the same root, that’s all.

I was merely adding a little note of interest, not arrogating.

The Anointed One has assumed the role of Arrogator-in-Chief:

He arrogates the Office of the President by virtue of not being a natural born citizen;
He arrogates the authority of the Congress by ruling through a plethora of Executive Orders;
He arrogates the provisions of the U.S. Constitution by simply ignoring them on his path to turning our Beloved Nation into a Socialist gulag.

Arrogate

Feeling the need to be serious there will be no fliverus and twisted convules of thought here...arrogant is the means of getting on an arro plane like Air Fierce One. Arrogate is the means of getting off it.

If a Mexican politician got into trouble over a cozy relationship with a grower of a certain cereal grain, would it be Arrozgate?

It is 51 and sunny here, but it was cold enough for me to have on a flannel shirt and a hoodie early this morning in the woods-

Obama’s fawning minions have
Helped him to arrogate a mess-
Whether it was their intention
Is just about anybody’s guess

Maybe they thought sequester
Was a club to beat the masses
Instead they look just foolish
As they rush to cover their asses

Maybe they thought more hardship
Was something we all would fear-
But we’re not frightened by that-
It has already long been here...
