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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Ocare provides a diminution of benefits.

No pushing at the door please!
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
Dang it. Hit post too soon.
Issa is like a general with no army.
He’s doing Yeoman’s work...but with little public support.
i can’t answer that. we have no control over it. do you think railing on FR or twitter will get the TP to embrace christie? you’re delusional, if so. I asked one of my song pop pals, who is a conservative in RHODE ISLAND of all places, what he thought of Christie, and he said— too moderate, i don’t care for that obama-hugging hippo. and i asked if he would vote for him if he were the nominee and he said, yes, bc he would not vote for hillary the closet-dyke, but that there was a whole lot of time for something else to happen before then.
oh me too, truthy, me too! A++++
The deminution of my munition is directly proportional to the use of munitions in the deminution of my adversaries.
No idea. I commuted for many years and always kept my pants on. Except this one time, in band camp...
The diminution of my munition is directly proportional to the use of munitions in the diminution of my adversaries.
Sorry, F+ for spelling.
i don’t take off for spelling ; )
Because some guy wanted to see some girl with her pants off, so he invented a “thing” for the reason.
so much unseemly just for that? 99% of what was exposed will scar people for life, who happen to view it.
the little japanese toddler is adorbs though.
It’s a simple point. People are reacting to the LiB medias advance assault.
Let me give an anecdotal example.
If he got as much coverage for shouting that teachers union wench down, TP would go apeshit.
Christies conservative problem, he can handle on the stump, and in the debates.
Been my only point all along.
Crap, no one knows jack shit about NJ governance...
Even me, who lives here barely pays attention to these crap weasels.
Truthy, anything to add?
oh hell; awesome! You have raised one who has chosen well....
Just for that? I think you underestimate.
Men build skyscrapers, go to war and fly off to the moon “just for that.”
the TP is well aware of him taking on unions and his ability to handle the press, they do not find that sufficient to counteract his RINOness.
Hope you cleaned the flute. Rofl
as abominations go, i’ve seen worse....
it’s nonsensical to me. but i am sure HD will be chiming in any second now on the display of POOPERS.
(little too slow)
did you scroll through all the hideous?
Christie Whitman, was an obv Rino, as Gov.
Christie...is different.. The context of the State, he governs...will not go away. Until he seeks higher office .I have a pretty fair eye, (backed Keyes,Bush.Perry) so, it’s not like, it’s hard too tell the difference between say. christie, and..party nominees John McCain, or Mitt Romney.
Btw, did you see the Maricopa/McCain thing?
I swear XS, do you go to art museums, take a magnifying glass to classic landscape paintings, and search for piles of manure? Enjoy the beauty; don’t focus on the blemishes.
Meh. Why bother with the length? You don’t see them when the knees are around your lats.
If you spoke any more truth, we’d need a fifth Evangelist.
the russian woman is much more attractive than the brit.
hey, as a Mary Lou Retton fanatic I’ve always been on the side of it’s the shapeliness, not the length that matters. But damn, there are exceptions to many rules, and this is like Side-Show Freakism for good, not evil.
I would suspect that men just have that innate eyesight.
Women on the other hand view other women like looking across the line in the 100 yard dash.
Till they go lipstick.
