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".
-n, pl vortices, vortexes

[164555; < Latin, variant of vertex vertex]
Come and get sucked in.
Wouldn’t that be more like a geyser?
Wwhat is this, the Blue Oyster Bar?
In, not off.
The tech vortex guides our day-to-day business, sometimes to our detriment.
This past week I could see vortexes of snow whirling on the hill sides across the valley, miles away. It was not the usual ones from the snow blowers, either. More like dust devils. Really sick of winter already here in the frozen tundra.
This isn't easy when you skip the obvious.
Hot tub vortex
Andrea Tantaros called him “Hot Tub Slime Machine” Spitzer, in a very cool obscure movie reference.
You’ve got water and suction. I’ll accept it. ;-)
That woman has ruined her career bc of this affair with the disgusting character. The thought of sex with him is vomit inducing!
Very funny movie. Just saw it a second time recently.
What’s hilarious is I’ve exchanged snakry tweets with her. She was spokesbabe the campaigns of Ted Strickland, Jon Corzine, the DGA, and now DeCommunist of NY.
They are cute! Cabbage Patch crochet wigs?
7 degrees at home, 12 degrees in DC at my ofc. going to be mid-30s tomorrow.
that’s exactly what they are!
very cute for a bald baby, i think!
I’m guessing it’s a resume booster. She’s a Democrat.
But yes it is vomit inducing as he’s such a weasle plus we know way too much about his proclivities because of the hooker business.
That maybe, but every time she opens her mouth, I like her more,
She alludes, constantly to being more than a little on the wild side......
well Diblasio canned her didn’t he? he’s HIDEOUS!
Neo is taking about Lis Smith, and you are talking about Tantaros.
You know, i could understand Jill St.John and Kissinger.,,
I could understand Monica and Bill
But Spitzer? That guy is so gross he wouldn’t get f@@@ed in prison...
Plus how dumb does she have to be to not realize the press is on him like white on rice...
sent the pic to my daughters and nieces and said if any of them ever have girl babies i am totes getting them one of those! everyone had cabbage patch babies, so that is just adorable!
it could be some fatal “bad boy” attraction, i read that she dated someone who ended up in prison.
I was watching the Five one day last month and Tantaros said “subsequently” like “sub-SEE-quent-ly.”
I was embarrassed for her.
He's a billionare. Lis probably banged Corzine too. Same reason.
I just caught that after I read the entire statement...lol
I responded to his first sentence, then when I went back, I realized he was talking about Dick Morris’ dream date.
Negative 8 this morning. I actually used a scarf this morning for the walk from the parking lot.
Yesterday’s high was 50 (very early in the morning).
she looks prettier lately, i think maybe bc she cut her hair to shoulder length. what is the schtick with beckel and kimberly? there’s unseemly flirtation etc.
Then that makes her dumber than the average hooker.
She lost a career, they got paid.
She had 4 years, at least...locked in with Red Bill.
I think there is a certain amount of lollygagging going on that they are trying to get a hold on. But this is heavy handed.
I don’t know, I haven’t really been watching much lately.
Speaking of heavy-handed, best show lately starts its new season tonight. Justified.
That reminds me. Guess who showed up on the new season of Community as a teacher?
Mike from Breaking Bad.
And did anyone catch Downton Abbey?
Why is it Mrs Crowley can bring a total stranger into her house for rehabilitation, but she can’t hire her dad son’s butler till he finds another position?
And didn’t the plot of season one revolve around the fact that Mary, as a woman, can’t inherit Downton. Now it turns out with a handwritten letter from her dead husband that she can?
He’s got a great voice.
When you say getting, you mean yarn and needles, right ;)
She got fired? That’s hardly progressive of Kaiser Bill.
Yes, and that demeanor.
I’d be in the Principals ofc. In about 10 seconds, and none of them want to see me lol...
The only ones that don’t know me ....YET...are in the High School, and that’s because #1 son is a standout citizen.
I’ve physically threatened one dean of discipline, in a meeting bc he seemed to misunderstand the difference between battery and self defense, so I offered to demonstrate it (you’d have loved that, the door was open, and I was halfway across the table...and the entire ofc staff heard it, and it caused the Principal to come sprinting into the room) and another at the district level, with a lawsuit, by offering to take the parental handcuffs off number one son, bc some little jag-off was verbally abusing him for a year.
That crap in the schools, is one area where I brook no crap, there are many places where you can let stuff slide...that ain’t one of them,
(#1 is 6’3”, lifts daily, plays lacrosse,football and baseball, and is well trained in the violent elimination of an opponent)
Not letting kids pee,,,what in the world have we become?
And Chicago? They don’t have bigger issues?
This is in the Zero Tolerance vein ( which is how I wound up with the Dean of Discipline)
Sorry for the rant. The petty School District bureaucrat stuff rattles my cage.,,lol
Yes, it was evident in Beverly Hill Cop, but as he aged, it all came together.
Immediately. He’s a commie, but not stoopid. He knows he’s going to have press problems, since every one covering him, is in his tax the rich gun sights, so she was expendable. And as I said, demonstrably stupid.
8 million people in the city, and thats the one she picks?
From the sucking Obamacare vortex
There is no protection, no Gore-tex
It has pulled ratings down
Making liberals frown
And question O’s cerebral cortex
OMG — those graphics are chilling. Why is nobody doing anything about this? Is the whole government fraudulent?
