b>Word For The Day, Monday, August 26, 2013 arrogate
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".
Arrogate; verb (used with object), ar·ro·gat·ed, ar·ro·gat·ing. 1. to claim unwarrantably or presumptuously; assume or appropriate to oneself without right: to arrogate the right to make decisions. 2. to attribute or assign to another; ascribe. Origin: 153040; < Latin arrogātus appropriated, assumed, questioned (past participle of arrogāre ), equivalent to arrog- ( ar- ar- + rog ( āre ) to ask, propose) + -ātus -ate1
Here is my example with >> WFTD.
Obama has arrogated himself all of the powers of a monarch and he plays golf with the world in turmoil.
Arrogate — informal term for the archery scandal at the 2012 London Olympics.
Sorry, Truthie -- I plead 'insufficient coffee', your Honour.
The powers Barack tries to arrogate
Are like a wide load with a narrow gate
It leaves Barry bored
Kill the lawyers, create Clarence Darrow-gate
Arrogate - the pace at which the horses run when the Indian attack begins.
- cue to circle the wagons.
morning truthy my sweet ; )
perfect !! A+++
LOL!! wonderful!~ A++++
good one, bob A+++
A+++ great cartoon
He is feeling less than special, so he had to arrogate some attention on the talking head shows.
Because he’s a blooming idiot.
First thing that came into my head.
You wanna try some Rorschach?
it drives me insane when people who were not in the courtroom, not familiar with the evidence, and with no knowledge of the legal issues in question or the burden of proof, opine on a verdict. i mean its fine for us, kibbutzing on a website, to do that, but to speak publicly as some sort of authority figure on it, is just wrong.
yeah, the state of the country feels like one big rorschach test!! that is definitely a good word. one of those things where you see it in context and have a vague notion of it’s meaning, but not it’s definition, thanks for bringing it!
I once had a Rorschach and literally saw two bears, their paws touching each other, as they stood over some red blotch and celebrated their bounty, while praying to God and giving thanks.
Psych thought I was one odd clod.
That’s what I saw though.
What is more irksome is the lack of any intelligent follow up questions when such an “authority figure” makes such pronouncements.
i would think a psych wouldn’t demonstrate a reaction; what did he say, OMG YOU ARE A BONAFIDE NUT, when you said that? LOL
oh that too. but that is standard.
I forget exactly but, yay, that was about what he said in so many words.
His facial and body expression was what I heard.
I could not agree more.
i had to qualify it bc i know i opined on the ludicrous Casey Anthony verdict and i wasn’t in the courtroom etc. But a prominent black opining on Zimmerman is only good for stoking the flames of the incipient racewar.
So, what kind of jagoff kicks a game-tying field goal with less than 2 minutes left in a pre-season game?
Probably wanted to look at some more players in OT.
That’s just bad etiquette in my book. You don’t risk injury prolonging a meaningless game.
And then, in the end, the same coach ends up going for it on 4th down instead of kicking a field goal in OT (first possession). So everything he could have learned about the mettle of his players on a big 4th down play he could have learned back in the 4th quarter.
Arrogate: A three-year “trial by the Washington press corpse” while persecuting Nixon for critically trying to change the Redskin’s plays.
“More tellingly, 22.4 percent have no interest in dating, and 60.9 percent are interested but not dating. (There are some female Bronies, but these are often called Pegasisters, giving third-wave feminists a fresh inequality to whinny about.)”
Well, if we ever need to sacrifice a virgin to appease the angry gods, we’ll know where to look.
(snort!) Good one!
I just read entire paragraphs to my family! They kept asking me if this was printed in The Onion! lol
It is sprinkling off and on here, and there is a chance for “real” rain-
The emperor and his minions
Seem to arrogate the choice
Of coherent policy making
To some other worldly voice
Each time there’s an incident
That shouldn’t come to pass
Shadowy “others” are blamed
To cover their collective ass
They’re probably just using
A Ouija board, and trying
To interpret spirit messages-
Never mind we’re not buying...
Attendance at Sunday’s Go Topless rally Downtown was as scant as a dancer’s pasties, but organizers said the group’s call for equality in public nudity laws drew wide support from the public.
There were a few hecklers at first, and a few men carrying cameras left the park looking disappointed.
I think people expected complete nudity, Sherwood said, having covered up with a bikini top to enter the park. This is my first time in Pittsburgh, and apparently nothing happens here.
It seems that living in BFE has made me unaware of a bunch of guys playing and identifying with girly kids’ toys-and it’s a good thing...
Haha - looks like the rally was a bust!
I find it impossible to believe that only 1.7% of the men involved in this are gay.....honestly.
“This is my first time in Pittsburgh, and apparently nothing happens here.”
There’s a slogan for the Chamber of Commerce. LOL
Haha - yeah that is a gem
less freakish than a brony, but freakish nonetheless.
honestly i adore him! he is the one that had the facetard article back when that was big.
