Word For The Day, July 30, 2013
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".
Meliorism [meel-yuh-riz-uhm, mee-lee-uh-]
the doctrine that the world tends to become better or may be made better by human effort.
[185560; < Latin melior better + -ism]
meliorist, -n, adj
Here’s a little morning pick-me-up. What is it with Canada and the power trio? Is it because of the sparse population?
is this a hairband? gosh i hate hairbands!
Is Obama ameliorating the meliorism of the Left? or exacerbating it?
Not in the traditional sense. They were more hard rock, not heavy metal. They included a classical guitar solo on every album. Anyway, it's about the music, not the hairstyle.
i don’t care for that era of music, it’s called hairbands as a style of music. i can’t recall anything by them.
I was just posting a nice, energizing song. You don’t have to like it.
The idea of meliorism is nice for children, but as you grow older and see the world, you realize it’s just a dream like Santa and the Easter Bunny.
i was simply exercising my first amdt right to state my dislike of it ; )
Are you disliking or prejudging?
A meliorism is a self evident fact about meals like, If you’re really hungry you won’t notice the smell of burnt feathers.... And... If you have rats why waste a good chicken?
Chanel is doing ok, i put the peepee pad in their room overnight, bc the lasix they have prescribed for eliminating the fluid in her lungs makes her pee alot. she has to take the lasix twice a day and elanapril, the heart med, once a day for now, and she goes back in 2 weeks to monitor how the meds are affecting her system etc. So yesterday, for the care of Chan, the scrips for her two meds, an xray of her chest, a heartworm test for each of Chan and Jules and heartworm meds for each of them, the bill was $1195. Is petmeds still in business? there was a flyer at the desk of the vet saying how the FDA has shut down many online pharmacies. Since she is going to be on the meds longterm i was going to refill them with PetMeds, bc that’s what i did with Loosh, since the vet is so much more for those things.
did i post the Pgh dad re; FL vacation? if not, let me know and i will find it. my brother could have starred in that episode.
Fair enough. No, you didn’t post a link to the latest Pittsburgh Dad.
My wife gets the flea stuff for the pets online. I think it comes from someplace in Australia. So it’s probably illegal.
I can ask her if you want.
Meliorism is about burning chickens for food?
Thought a melieorgasm was part of the conversation between a pair of liberals looking for quick sex?
View the wonder of meliorism
As it’s seen through the liberal prism
People all do what’s right
Never greedy; don’t fight
For example, just observe communism
