Word For The Day, Monday, 5/20/13
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".
1. refractory or unruly: a fractious animal that would not submit to the harness. 2. readily angered; peevish; irritable; quarrelsome: an incorrigibly fractious young man.
1725, from fraction in an obsolete sense of "brawling, discord" + -ous; probably on model of captious. Related: Fractiousness
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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
The word fractious means to be unruly or not submissive. This word is often confused by people with the word factious. A sentence using the word fractious could be 'The fractious horse would not allow the harness to be put on'.
EW Jackson, newly nominated candidate for Lt. Gov. in VA will be perceived as fractious by the Dems. He has urged blacks to leave the Democrat plantation.

There will be brawling in the Old Dominion State come November.
"....it's what you get when you divide tiouses"
xshub and xsbaby were both delegates to the Republican state convention in Richmond this past weekend. To xsbaby’s delight, her nametag said VIP delegate on it, and xshub’s did not. It has to be because of her past work for the fairfax co. republicans. it was a great experience for her and a long day. They keep balloting until there is a majority winner. EW Jackson, who has been on Glenn Beck and mentioned by Rush, in the past, is our candidate for Lt. Governor— a black preacher speaking truth to black power! Ken Cuccinelli was unapposed for rep nomination as governor.
SOMEONE has got to come up with an anti-FRACKING piece of HW! A+++
"You have been deemed FRACTIOUS by AG Holder
in your IRS-ObamaCARE account.
The Party has authorized us -- the ObamaCARE REPO Team-- to seize
your entire family's TeaParty kidneys and corneas.
Show your DNC Delegate Card or Koran, or submit."
The Kenyan can certainly act in a fractious manner when he doesn’t get his way.
Obama told a school child, “Subtraction is hard. Fractious is even harder.”
he’s an infant. A+++
LOL! A+++ they sure is!
Tea Partiers were deemed fractious by the GOPe which is why the alarm was not raised earlier about the delayed and denied 50163s.
A++++ good illustration.
That is an awesome photoshop
A+++ she sounds great!
When you have a President as plagued with scandals and atrocities as obama, but he refuses to resign, you get a fractious nation.
A+++ he isn’t going anywhere, this is a lifetime gig for him!
