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
“could this cost Dad money?”... ROFL
Probably about faking it... me lie orgasm.
after all pretense is everything to the “hook up” crowd.
those sleeping with the mouth open poses could be xsbro, he has those glasses! xskids are always OMG it’s uncle michael when they see those vids.
I use human pharmacies for my dog meds now. Kroger, Walmart, and Target since they are using human meds. I get heartworm meds by mail from Omaha Vaccine because they are about $10 less per dog that way. They fax the script to them and they call the local pharmacies for the other meds. I’m glad she did okay last night. That was a very stressful day for her and I can empathize with the outrageous expense.
The falsehood that the world becomes better through My efforts. ~BHO
He is funny for sure! Meant to tell you my daughter got doggie health insurance when she adopted, since she had no idea of background or what they might be facing. Is it too late to get insurance for Channel?
I sometimes play Triumph for driving music...
Meliorism will never work
When selfishly motivated-
Like Obama’s greedy minions
Whose ideas become hated
Because of all the payoffs
To those of the worst kind
Whose personal wealth gain
Is all they have in mind
They just don’t understand
This has been done before-
There isn’t that much koolaid
And it’s not far to the door...
I’ve got an estimate and an errand-back later...
I see some people have good taste. ;-)
Kiss my grits!
“I don’t ask for much: the truth would do just fine”
Well, you’re young, you’re wild and you’re free...
My vet is way cheaper. Did the same stuff with our Missy, didn’t cost barely a fraction of that. About $100.00. Gees, what a rip off.
It depends if we have reached the point where we want to make a complete mockery of DHS.
That’s why I didn’t tell xs how much it cost to board my dog for a week. I’m sure the cost is outrageous down there.
Scary but at least we might get rid of her after a few years.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Last time we boarded Missy, it was $6/day. And for an extra $25 she could have a bath and be ready to go home when we picked her up.
That’s really good. We paid something like $20/day and $35 for the grooming.
i know everything is way cheaper there, but the trade off is having to live there, and i’d rather not : )
pretty sure it’s $50/day and that’s at Petsmart for the two of them in one room. i know the vet has boarding and it’s WAYYYY more than that. and the dog groomer comes once per month and that’s $85 per dog. But he literally spends at least a full hour on each of them, last time i swear he had Jules in the van for an hour and a half, bc they are HAIRY beasts. The groomer has a truck and comes to you and does it right there in our culdesac. Its far more convenient than taking them somewhere.
At least Ace is still funny.
“the doctrine that the world tends to become better or may be made better by human effort.”
Lately, it doesn’t seem to be working.
LMAO I miss twitter......I cannot wait to this house is clean and ready for the kids. Why do I only dust and clean theri old rooms once or twice a year?
Because they are empty?
You’ve been there way too long if you’re starting to like it. ;-)
