Word For The Day, Wednesday, October 30, 2013-- distempered
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".
hear it pronounced
verb, transitive (used with object)
1. To put out of order.
2. Archaic To unsettle; derange.
Origin: English distemperen, to upset the balance of the humors, from Old French destemprer, to disturb, from Late Latin distemper re : Latin dis-, dis- + Latin temper re, to mix properly.]
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.
If you like your Word For The Day, you can keep your Word For The Day. Period. But I gotta see some homework.
THe ACA has distempered our lives by forcing our current health plans to be canceled before new policies are put in place. Betsy McCaughey argues that this was a lie from the beginning, here: http://spectator.org/archives/2013/10/30/a-lie-from-day-one
“Sea bass? Are they distempered?”
Here's hoping that Obamacare will ultimately prove to be worse for the democrat party than it is for Americans in general. That's a tall order.
Don’t get your hopes up.
oh believe me, my life philosophy has ALWAYS been expect the worst and be pleasantly surprised if anything else happens.
It may be because I've just started sipping my first coffee, but I don't get the "sea bass" reference.
Dr Evil... Austin Powers...
Couldn’t get sharks with lasers on their heads because of endangered species act, so they had to get sea bass. At least they were ill tempered.
If the third party voters get real and vote republican, and if McAwful can be portrayed as a proxy for Obamacare, Cooch has a shot. I wouldn't bet any money you can't afford to lose.
LOL! Thanks for clearing that up.
I’m sure the blame-shifting will reach new heights with Sebelius’ testimony. I hope that the republicans pound her early and often on how and why CGI (whom she will blame) got the huge, no-bid contract. The connection between the FLOTUS and her Princeton pal at CGI needs to be explored in detail.
Great rant. Thanks for the link. Maybe, just maybe, the accumulated weight of all of the lies of the past five years has reached a critical mass, and even some of the dullards on the other side are realizing that Obama can’t be believed, and therefore can’t be trusted.
If Cuccinelli upsets McAwful, and if the exit polls attribute the results to dissatisfaction with Obamacare, I think we are likely to be on the cusp of a sea change that will make 2010 look like a narrow victory. Every democrat senator in a red state will be running for cover, which might lead to who-knows-what when the next “fund the government” fiasco arrives.
oh he makes a great point, but you won’t convince the rabid purists of that.
it would be wonderful but i cannot allow myself to hope. i was severely traumatized last november, and it did lasting damage.
You're not the only one. Check my tagline, which I've been running since then.
Senate and House in ‘14. Total control in 16. Payback.
Circle of Life,Simba.
Karma will kiss it and make it all better.
The numbers say so.
And the Obstinance of the Senate, and The administration over Ocare, provide a target rich environment.
You need to amend that sir.
Democrats always fail basic math. Now they have changed it,
2014 + 2016 will equal 1776.
your scenario completely discounts Satan’s influence, which i believe is very real. The bible speaks of people being blind and deaf to the truth. i have seen enough of that to know that it’s real.
RME. That’s been fairly obvious since John Dewey.
Satan can have a great influence.
But...God doesn’t trifle with him. He sends an Archangel.
And FWIW, you might want to spend an hour reading Maccabees. Particularly from 3:42.
God helps the just.
End Times eschatology does not reflect the presence of the US as a power on the world stage. You presume that it is God’s will that this nation return to greatness. I don’t.
Inventor of the Dewey Decimal System?
I don’t think you are telling us the truth - I think tomorrow there will be a different word for the day and possibly even a different teacher!
Huge influence on the founding of the Public School System....
I agree - the liberal, white guilt obamots would follow him straight into hell and claim it was a warm day in heaven if he told them to.
Scientists, and PhD’s are the most Godless of people, in General.
Lack of Hope, is Lack of Faith.
And FWIW...they aren’t necessarily brilliant minds, they are credentialed minds.
Read Maccabees. Out Numbered. Out Spent. Victorious.
God Favors the Just.
Took 30 years to defeat Communism.
and then there are just the uninformed and disinterested who will not give a crap no matter what. Even if this fiasco can be tied to Obama, HE isn’t running again, and they will distinguish Hillary in every way possible.
OMG will you please not act like i am unfamiliar with Maccabees? My faith in God saves ME, not our country. I am not convinced that it is God’s will that our country remain great. God’s promise doesn’t extend to saving political boundaries. God doesn’t see AMERICANS, he sees believers.
Yes, good article. We can only hope and pray that enough people wake up and consider trying the alternative (Constitutional gov’t limited by the rule of law).
It’s not a sure bet, but the status quo is not sustainable.
My point isn’t that you’re unfamiliar, you prob know it better than I do, and it’s one of my favorite parts.
But, Hope for Change ;)
No, God despises evil, the conversation over the destruction of Sodom and Gomorra did not center around believers, but the Good.....
And he was going to spare it, for a minimum pf Good People.
You shouldn’t despair....that’s all. : )
Politics is a Pendulum, and..momentum matters.
Karma is coming.
But think about it. Who are the believers? And who needs smiting, according to His word?
Of course, I’m just not convinced that His plan is some huge comeuppance for that lot and the vindication of believers. Not until judgment day that is. People of faith prayed their hearts out last November knowing what we’d be in for with this bunch and God chose to let this happen for His reasons. I’m just saying that His reasons may not include the comeuppance we so ardently wish for.
I don’t think we have any hope for leaders in the future - none. By 2016 many of us will be struggling to pay the increased health care premiums and additional costs to healthcare that will now fall under the huge deductibles - along with few jobs and what I fear will be absolute flood gates opening along our southern border as they allow for citizenship to that third world nation. More and more will become dependent upon the government just to eat.
I’m not despairing but my faith is in God not men, even Republicans. It may be that God intends to make things so bad that there is no hope but to call on Him. Hope lies with God, the solution may not be a political one.
Yep, that’s about it. You and I tend towards the apocalyptic point of view ; ) I think the point of last November was to teach us that politics will not save us.
Heck, given Superstorm Sandy he may have done more than just ignore us.
I agree that this outcome appears pretty purposeful.
I actually disagree with your comment - there are disasters that happen all over the world every day. Superstorm Sandy wasn’t any worse than a large tornado or a major flood -it just hit a more dense population that didn’t heed warnings as they should have. I have sympathy for their losses - truly - and wish the media would blame FEMA, and by association, obam, like they did President Bush for the delays in help and/or insurance companies refusing to pay.
On the economic front, Obama clearly shows a lack of will (at best) in realistically dealing with burgeoning unemployment -- for example, the Jobs Council over which he should have regularly presided met only sparingly if at all; with the promotion of Obamacare, it's plain that he clearly desired Temp employment to grow despite his pronouncements, and his ongoing policies edited permanent positions from the workforce, for all intents & purposes.
This mounting evidence of malfeasance is taking place amidst deeper issues within this Administration that have likely yet to be discovered. Regrettably however, no amount or repetition of such deeds permit further investigation by the current slavish mainstream Media.
Yes. Bigger disasters happen all the time. And no, natural disasters are not a sign of a wrathful God.
But the timing of it sealed the 2012 election.
Amd the media is what it is.
