Word For The Day, Monday, 1/13/14
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".
1. the act, fact, or process of diminishing; lessening; reduction. 2. Music. the repetition or imitation of a subject or theme in notes of shorter duration than those first used.
Etymology: 12751325; Middle English diminucion < Anglo-French diminuciun < Latin dīminūtiōn- (stem of dīminūtiō ), for dēminūtiōn- (stem of dēminūtiō ) (by influence of dīmunuere; see diminish), equivalent to dēminūt ( us ) (past participle of dēminuere, equivalent to dē- de- + minuere to lessen) + -iōn- -ion
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.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....

One might have said that the undocumented Tyrant
(by voter fraud) and his Czars are continuing
to diminish both the notion of Equality under the Law
and the aegis of the Constitution
— if either still existed at all.
Wow, good word.
Never heard that one.
It is impossible for the dim bulbs in the Whitehouse to undergo further diminution in my eyes.
ok, but where’s the word for the day? ; )
oh i bet if they try hard they could go down even further ; ) A+++
Future historians will see the diminution of America by obama policies as the most notable feature of this era.
true dat. A+++
The diminution of America’s world stature is due nearly entirely to liberals and their policies, and has accelerated under Owe-bama.
I know that alot of people disagree with me onChristie, but from a traffic jam to the Feds now investigating Sandy Relief.
I want someone to seriously assert this is not being run out of the DNC.
Like I Said it was....
It’s amusing and appalling at the same time to watch Democrats, cry Corruption.
It’s no longer about the Chubby guy...it’s a side taking moment.
At least you have to credit the slimy Democrats...they circle the Wagons.
We look for the nearest bus to toss people under.
exactly true! A+++
he is a space/astronaut geek of the first order.
Which, by the way proves the axiom, “you get the Government you Deserve”
no one will disagree that it is a DNC operation to discredit him. No one will disagree that we conservatives employ the circular firing squad.
I knew that already. Question really is...When do we stop?
we had dinner and cake for him last night. they will go out to dinner tonight. it’s funny, bc just like xsboy and xsteen are born one day and 3 years apart, xsfiance’s brother’s bday was yesterday and they are 4 yrs apart.
Our freedoms and rights: diminution
But Obama wants our absolution
As we land on our tush
Barry’s still blaming Bush
What I’d give for some real retribution
