Class is in session!
See Chris Matthews expectorate and Al Sharpton macerate. Tune into MSNBC!
(Let your brain evaporate.)
Good morning. Every word we study seems to raise the spectre of Obumbum. You stole my thunder. I’ll have to think again.
Macerate = how fast your self defense spray comes out.
Very clever! Then I guess "expecto-rate" refers to the speed at which freebies are anticipated by the low-information supporters of Obama. Then again, I've been told that I don't know spit. At least it sounded like "spit."
Good pun on expecto-rate...
Could also be how fast you can spit.
I’m so proud i got that right away ! : )
I thought macerate was the swiftness of a crazed lunatic calming down after getting hit in the face with a squirt of mace....hmm, perhaps you are right though. I have seen it happen pretty dang fast right outside my ambulance. The guy kicked one of us (not me) and the spray hit his face within seconds. Amazing job by the cop. Nasty spitting mess all the way to the ER though.
We’re all proud of you, too. ;-)
Now you can stop taking the ahort bus ; )
if you do that long enough you could go blind.
The what now?
To engage in or perform the Macarena
i give the other guy in the clip credit, i would have been rolling on the damn floor, guffawing!
I figured someone would go there.
You say to-may-to and I say to-mah-to
You say dildo and I say dodo
Let’s call the whole thing off
I like it. (The pun, not the macarena.)
Did Weiner’s sexting include maceration?
My big dog has lost another pound - yay! He’s practically macerated!
You mean emacerated?
He needs to lose at least 2 more pounds to knock $400 off his heartworm treatment. I am motivated.
Good for the dog.
did you give him a haircut?
More news about macerated Detroit:
Only 1/2 day of work today-this is getting very, very tiresome...
Many in congress are feeling
The effects of their decision
To allow Obamascare to pass-
Now they’re subject to derision
As the sensible among them
Seek to macerate the thing
The emperor tells “celebrities”
To go adorn it with some bling
But the only ones who listen
To those ‘hood ‘rats every day
Are too young to buy insurance
And don’t have the money to pay...
Weiner is an internet sex addict, I swear. Did I hear his wife say he’d been to therapy? Well, here’s a newsflash, lady-you wasted your money-it didn’t work!
If she wants to stay with that pig, that it her business, but I can’t imagine why anyone in NYC, or any other city would want to elect a mayor who is vulnerable to blackmail...
“Detroit” and “macerated.” Perfect together.
Obamacare only works if people who don’t need much insurance (the young and healthy) subsidize those who do (the old and feeble.) The former will never buy it in sufficient numbers to support the latter. The whole thing could collapse under its own weight.
As an interesting aside, the people I know/know of who are feeble/in ill health are nearly all male, under the age of 55, and most take a lot of prescription drugs, and don’t work at all, at anything-they do hang out at the deli and the ice house complaining a lot, though, which is why everyone knows them.
Healthy people never retire here-they just keep running their farms and businesses till they die of something quick.
The healthy of any age are simply not going to be forced support the sick, buy their drugs, pay for their hospital visits, etc across the board, Truthy-it is different with a private insurance company-their risk pool is not the whole f’in country-I have Tricare, but that is a limited risk pool, too.
Why should those of us who don’t seek medical attention unless injured or dying, remain drug free, fit, healthy and working pay for literally thousands who run to the doctor with every sniffle, are morbidly obese and depressed-and also pay for 8 or nine prescription drugs they take, and the side effects of all those drugs?
I’m probably rendered cynical by a degree in social work and years as a case manager, but I’ve seen so many able bodied people rendered stupid by antidepressants, painkillers, etc so that they never want to work again and end up on Medicaid and SSDI when their workers comp runs out. Obamascare is just that on a much larger scale- stepping off soapbox and exiting stage right...
There is a certain logic to the insurance groups. A company has an interest in the health of its workers and their loved ones.
My interest in the health of some unrelated person wanes.
I like the Obama plan to whip us all up into a frenzy of race division right before calling on all of us to see ourselves as one big insurance pool.
A luxury sports car can certainly macerate your bank account...
No, I brush him out a few times each week. He has been cut back to 2/3 of his diet and has steadily lost about 1.5 lbs/month. I got the estimate for his treatment and will need to work quite a few extra shifts.
I realize I’m a complete and unrepentant rebel, but I do not want a company I work for having a vested interest in any aspect of my personal life, period-pay me for my work, and my life outside work is none of your business-it is one big reason I work for myself.
If I hadn’t had my own insurance, I still probably would have refused it at work just the same, and chanced paying cash-the only time I had insurance at work was when I worked for the state, just out of college.
And you are totally right-my interest in the health of some unrelated person is about zero-and I don’t want to be part of a huge risk pool of the unwashed masses-it does not make sense at the best of times. But the idiot in chief didn’t do himself any favors by helping the Sharptons and Jacksons create suspicion and resentment between ethnic and racial groups when his grand legacy program is already a grand failure set to sink any legacy he had...
A+++ for your Macerati
He would only be vulnerable to blackmail if he had any sense of shame or remorse. He has demonstrated he has neither.
I’m curious-why does the dog have to lose weight to get treatment-was he overweight?
We have two of those here in town. The sounds of those engines purring is very distinctive and can give me whiplash.
That is certainly true-but he was disgraced into resigning already once-remember the video with the people cheering when he announced it? I think he’d pay big bucks or big favors not to have that happen again if he were the mayor of NYC...
I think she wants to buy a smaller dose for a smaller dog.
When we adopted him from the shelter, he was pretty skinny with a dull coat, 59 lbs soaking wet. Within 9 months, he was up to 75 lbs, shiny, fluffy, and probably 3-4 lbs overweight. The medication(arsenic, imported from overseas) to treat him is very expensive and based on his weight. If I can get him to a certain weight, we won’t need the 3 extra vials. It costs over $150 per vial.
