Word For The Day, Monday, D6/10/13
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".
: otherness; specifically : the quality or state of being radically alien to the conscious self or a particular cultural orientation
Etymology: Late Latin alteritat-, alteritas, from alter First Known Use: 1642
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. ;-)

The term is also deployed outside of philosophy, notably in anthropology by scholars such as Nicholas Dirks, Johannes Fabian, Michael Taussig and Pauline Turner Strong to refer to the construction of "cultural others". The term has gained further use in seemingly somewhat remote disciplines, e.g. historical musicology where it is effectively employed by John Michael Cooper in a study of Goethe and Mendelssohn.[Good Morning Class.

A+++ Good to see you, dirtboy. Yes, imagine the shrieks and wails from the left, were it a republican, yet they are so complacent under Obams.
Sounds like a “squish” of “alternate reality” - you know, like Satan offered up in Genesis 3, beginning the religion of Humanism that the left adheres to to this day.

To assuage all the takers
It helps if you can lie with sincerity
