Word For The Day, Wednesday, September 4, 2013-- ensky
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".
Accent on second syllable.
verb, transitive verb (used with object),. to place in or as if in the heavens; exalt.
Origin: 15951605; en-1 + sky
enskied or enskyed, enskying
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.
Let’s see some homework today.
Is this Pig Latin?
Look! It’s a bird! It’s a pain! What was ensky is now in my eye!
A bird in hand is worth two ensky.
Yes, even some of the hard-line lefties have removed their rose-colored glasses and have noticed that the emperor has no clothes.
Since you mentioned baseball, the Pirates got win 81 yesterday. They can finish no worse the .500, meaning 20 years of losing seasons are effectively over.
Many are waiting for one more win to guarantee a winning record before celebrating.
i bet their toga parties are a real blast.
And their sheep are nervous.
So, I was at a Labor Day barbecue at the home of a guy I have known since we were 12. He knows that we are on opposite ends of the political spectrum, and most of the time we avoid talking politics. Apparently, he couldn’t stand it any more, and he decides to go here:
“I know you’re a conservative, but even you have to admit that George Zimmerman got away with murder.”
He was quite surprised to hear otherwise. The entire basis of his argument was that Zimmerman had a gun, Trayvon didn’t; Trayvon got shot to death, therefore—murder.
I was amazed to hear how little he actually knew about the case. Didn’t follow the trial. Didn’t hear the testimony of that excellent (computer guy) witness who saw Trayvon on top of George. Didn’t hear any of the brilliance of Trayvon’s lady friend. Knew nothing of the forensics expert who said the blood drops on Trayvon’s shirt could not have landed the way they did if he had been standing up, etc, etc.
When Rush brags that he has never lost a debate with a liberal, he really isn’t bragging. It’s always a battle between hard facts, statistics and evidence vs. generalities, anecdotes, and feelings. I easily won my debate but lost a “friend.” Good riddance.!
The false god-king Barack Hussein obama seeks to ensky himself—far above the heavens.
But he will be cast down into the Pit!!!!
There is only one God, and His name is not Barack Obama.
You’re kidding? he was POd bc you were better informed and RIGHT? couldn’t admit his ignorance?? seriously. there is something wrong with them. they live in an alternative universe. i know i am obsessed with Atlas Shrugged these days, but that’s exactly how Dagny, Hank and Francisco felt about their peers. I am about halfway through now. i don’t want this book to ever end.
I had been sitting around a table with my pal and three other lefties. There was one other conservative there who kept rooting me on. The three libs never said a word and, one by one, left the table and never came back.
When they talk amongst themselves, two conclusions will be drawn.
1- That guy (i.e., me) is a real a—hole.
2- Zimmerman was guilty of murder.
The bad guys have plenty of nasty ideas of their own.
I recall the old joke about what to do if a nuke hits. Bend over, put your head between your knees and kiss your ass good-bye.
Once again, showing that you can not reason a person out of a position that he did not reason himself into.
it’s so dispiriting isn’t it? There is no hope ever for a meeting of the minds, they are incapable of rational thought.
The good news is you’ll be done with it before the third and final installment of the movie comes out.
So why did they have an entirely diff cast for parts one and two? a friend of mine at work and i were discussing it yesterday and she checked imdb and saw that there were diff people.
I don’t know except to say that the first one losing money might have had something to do with it.
Of course the second one lost money too.
And so will the third one.
I watched the first one on Netflix. The second isn’t there (yet).
If they want to make money they should sell $ cigarettes.
The only thing Bill Clinton really cares about is getting his lew ensky.
May it be that from this day onward, whenever Obama is riding in a vehicle and sees his name or likeness enskied near him, it is a billboard pointing out what an incompetent weasel he is seen to be.
LOL. Very nice.
he’s a BS artist par excellence. he must be fairly true to it though since he looks pretty emaciated. Am betting his cow of a “wife” isn’t a vegan.
Not a vegan, but I bet she hasn't touched meat in thirty years....
you are so crude! LOL!!
Hey, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
Sadly it does.
You will love The Fountainhead.
haha..that's a great one even if a bit lew d
Come in here dear girl, have a cigar, youre gonna go far,,l
Obama and his ilk are wont to ensky Alinsky
Is anyone enskying this trend?
Cloudy here and maybe rain later on, but hoped for work did not materialize-maybe tomorrow...
The emperor is desperate-
To sell his obamascare plan-
It is far more unpopular
Than last year, when he ran
He’s going to sports guys,
Hoping they will ensky it-
But no matter who pitches it
No one is inclined to buy it
The only ones who want it
Are those of the Roman mob
Who will get in free anyway,
Since they won’t even get a job
And my dad used to call that “preaching to the choir”...
I’ve been obsessed with the similarities with that book for a few years now, and it reinforced almost every day. And I probably shouldn’t have started reading This Perfect Day again right now, the way things are in the world and all-next thing you know, I may be packing up and taking off looking for an island of folks like me, like in the book...
Another book with lost of creepy parallel's to today is "The Forgotten Man, A New History of the Great Depression" by Amity Schlaes and it's not even fiction.
Read that several years ago.
Most politicians are pretty easy to pigeonhole. McCain is a bit of an outlier. I generally agree with him about 50% of the time, whereas I will agree with Ted Cruz 100% of the time, and Barack Obama 0% of the time.
Highest grade for making me snicker.
