For today’s lesson, I looked up the word “deleterious,” and the dictionary said, “see Obamacare.”

Maybe, when this ridiculous policy ends, I can get a bank statement that says something other than: "You have earned 39 cents this quarter." Pity it costs them a 46 cent stamp to tell me that.

Nearly everything the obama administration does is deleterious to America, and the defeat of Ken Cuccinelli is deleterious to both Virginia and our entire nation!!!!

Deleterious is a good word,
but I liked Jefferson’s word for describing great cities:

PESTILENTIAL.

His remaining positive approval rating includes primarily the freeloaders and the socialists. Most of the rest of us had him figured out from Day One.

Deleterious

Let’s see if we can break this down like a cheap shot gun since we may need this deleterious somehow.

Delete we know is where everything goes, never to return, when I hit the wrong key here.

What could terious be but crying so deleterious is quit yer crying!

Right here on this bottle of Old Smash it has that word deleterious and most everyone who samples Old Smash ends up crying for some reason.

Pedant.

I’m still irked that your response to an offbeat comment got me listening to albums, after bedtime!

The comment sparked nothing,

Your quick witted recognition, got me thinking ....Hey, haven’t heard that in a while. Then I went down that dark, which albums are fueled by great bass tracks road...lol..

Depends on how you look at the line,

“Might be gettin ready for ...the back seat”

My take is, the front seat action (head down, get rhythm, stop your stalling and your bitchin) was de riguer,, but the former had not yet happened.

Depends on what the line really is.

Favors my interpretation as the front seat action as a prelude....

But isn’t that how it always works? Lol.

Apologies for the O/T Hockey intrusion into WFTD:

- Darcy Regier & Ron Rolston have been FIRED from their respective positions with the Buffalo Sabres.
- Former star Pat Lafontaine has been hired as President of Hockey Operations; search for new GM to be conducted.
- Ted Nolan returns to Buffalo as Head Coach of the team.
- The Sabres win their 1st game of the Season at home last night (#20); many attribute this to team announcer Rick Jeanneret needing to broadcast from ice level-

First freeze of the season last night-it was 31 on the deck this morning at 6:00-I saw no frost when hiking, even way up the hill in the woods...

Even as the statistics show
A failure truly epic in scope
Obama’s minions run to fix it
With a ladder and more rope...

It is as if they don’t see
Obamacare as deleterious-
For those who are cancelled
The matter is quite serious

Everyone had been promised
What they like, they keep-
Now they’re told one size
Is fine for a bunch of sheep...

Yeah, I’m baaaaad....

Baa indeed. Bah humbug works too. Obamacare is universally hated.

In discussion at the station, it was pointed out that too many who had insurance they liked found themselves without insurance and now they have inferior insurance for lots more money and higher deductibles. AND, the local riff raff still use medicare that WE pay for. So the only ones screwed are law abiding, tax paying citizens....not the takers.
