Word For The Day, Wednesday, March 19, 2014-- jawboning
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
n : the use of public appeals and other forms of spoken persuasion (as by a president) to influence the actions of others.
Origin: 148090; jaw + bone
jawbone, jawboned verb
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 jawbone is connected to the assbone, in this case.
I prefer to use that word as a verb in reference to the old hero Samson:
“The idiot Democrat senators who voted for this should be taken out back and jawboned about the head and shoulders until they get some sense knocked into them...”
The President has tasked John Podesta to do his “jawboning” on Climate change. Mr. Podesta has designed an App that will create an electronic simulation of what climate change will do to our own areas of the country. The question is: will anybody believe this fiction?
Indeed, the current occupant of the White House does seem to suffer from cranial-rectal inversion.
Rain and snow predicted for today with a high of 40 degrees. And we are supposed to have all of our heating units removed and replaced from off the roof of our plant! Cranes arriving in 45 minutes. We’ll see how it goes.
Believe that Podesta designed an app?
No. No one will believe that.
that guy is way too muscular to be obams! and pooty looks great in prison stripes!
That was an abbreviated way of describing Podesta’s plan. The important “take away” is that Podesta has hired someone to create an App to appeal to the younger folks to convince them of the horrors of climate change. They know that the older generations are too wise and experienced to believe this fol de rol. But, they think that they still have a chance to convince the millions who play with Apps all day.
I couldn’t come an agreement on the terms of the company I had a contract with, so after March 31st I will be a former jawboning, independent businessman again.
Since the dems can’t run on the success of Obamacare, and they can’t run on foreign policy success, and they can’t run on the economy, and they can’t run on the absence of scandals, all they can do is make stuff up: climate change, war on women, minimum wage (and now overtime wages) and the like. The people who are dumb enough to fall for this drivel were already dem voters. Independents who give a modicum of thought to the process cannot possibly vote democrat. And, conservatives will be motivated to turn out in droves to get these imbeciles out of office.
And all of that will be counter-balanced by massive vote fraud. The political Right should be doing EVERYTHING it can RIGHT NOW to get vote fraud reduced. Requiring ID, voter roll audits, huge grassroots push to get volunteers to monitor polling places, etc etc etc.
i hope you are right, but the American people have disappointed me before. I cannot underestimate their stupidity.
True, proven in 2008, 2012, and in your governor’s race.
I will even give them 2008, because the white guilt was overwhelming— they NEEDED to elect a black pres. But by 2012, no. There was no excuse for that. And yes, Terry McAuliffe, carpetbagger, had no business being elected governor.
I don’t understand the white guilt thing at all, unless it is liberal guilt for making things WORSE with the great society propaganda and programs.
Assboning is about all Obama’s tame and propagandist ABCNNBCBS media is doing nowdays.
Then again, that’s also all that Obama wants them to do between now and “his” election in November.
As someone whose forebears were all in eastern europe during the period of slavery, i feel no white guilt whatsoever. in fact i only feel guilt for things that I DO, not what anyone else does, be they in my family or not.
I agree that voter fraud is a huge problem. And states keep passing voter i.d. laws which are quickly challenged by Eric Holder’s “just-us” department. The fantasy that voter i.d. laws are somehow racist has become an on-the-ground reality.
It is interesting (to me) to recall how this fantasy was created. There was an analysis of who actually had a state-sanctioned i.d. which could be used at the polls. I don’t recall the numbers exactly, but, for the sake of discussion, something like 99% of whites had such identification, while the number for blacks was 98%. That is, statistically, not much of a differential. But, by flipping to the negative, they were able to say that 1% of whites didn’t have an i.d., but TWICE AS MANY blacks had that problem.
Pretty clever. Of course, states offered to make every effort to see that anyone who needed an identification card could get one at little or no cost, but that didn’t satisfy the fraudsters.
We need to keep the House, win the Senate and the White House. Then, we can get realistic legislation passed that will put a dent into voter fraud.
...I will take the former KGB officer in that face off.
I needed to hear those words this morning....I am only responsible for what I do, not my family. Sounds good.
Compared to Obama’s foreign policy—Syria, Benghazi, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and now Ukraine, Obamacare seems like a huge success.
Pain free this morning? How much housework can I get done? I am about to find out. LOL
You can come to my house and do some if you still need to find out more.
hope you get lots done, and pain free!
i am frank to say that i do not enjoy housework/cleaning. i will have to do some on Friday bc i am having my st james mom friends over for coffee to celebrate one of their birthdays, after AM Mass on Sat.
this administration is 100% political.
EXACTLY what I was going to type! That guy has a male body, not a woosy metro male body!
We don't feel white guilt because we don't view minorities as lesser humans incapable of making their own decisions, using their own inner strenght to get an education, jobs, homes, and make their own decisions about their lives and families.
Wow, that is ballsy!
Another word for this would be "colonization." You can't trust a population to run their own affairs so you have to do it for them.
In this jawboning exchange with the former Tonight Show host,
Obama was at a clear disadvantage right from the start...
OMG he’s pointing his finger like a gun!! i think that was threatening!
I read a really good piece by a black woman complaining about how, as a conservative, she is no longer considered black. She described the bi-racial pres, raised by a white mother and white grandparents compared to her with two black parents, a black husband and black children. She said to discount that, she was told it was about “the struggle”, to which she replied, how did this privledged bi-racial man fit into that narrative? Raised in Hawaii in prestigious private schools, educated at the most elite university in the country - how does he fit the definition of “struggle”? It was really well written - she said she went from being black one day to not black enough the next.
He has such delicate girly hands
You mean, 'The Shtruggle."
A black lady on Twitter the other night said something to the effect of “The GOP doesn’t have a good record with blacks, but remember the Democrats have done nothing for us either.”
The old “by giving them 95% of our votes, we have no power” argument.
Judging by the responses she got from other blacks, they know only one thing: conservatives are racists who hate them.
It’s transparent that they are manipulated by this phantom hatred into voting for Dems.
And the pathetic idea overall is that the government is supposed to do something for one group. What does the government do for ME???? I don’t say “hey what does the government do on a daily basis for this white woman?” - I look at Americans overall benefitting from our military and the government overseeing our monetary system of commerce. Expecting something just for blacks or just for gays or just for women is childish and dividing.
Jawboning on late night shows
And the internet between ferns
Proves beyond any doubt, Obama
Isn’t worth nearly what he earns
It seems as if his ideal job
Is hosting one of those shows
Or traveling, making speeches
And golfing wherever he goes
Maybe he should, as Nancy says
Be free to follow his passion-
Fine-let’s quit paying for that,
And Michelle’s high dollar fashion...
People like that identify with an ethnic/racial/or other group first and as Americans last. As long as they have that mindset, they will never be anything but ignorant and selfish, no matter what else they do.
I’d prefer to see any group thinking that way to go to some state that will agree with them, and get it-and them-out of this country-and that does include those who insist that government should continue to legislate morals, because they can’t see how that has brought us to this debacle we are in. They simply must have everyone believe just like them or by God, be legislated, punished, etc. That isn’t the America I was brought up to love and be willing to die for if the need came...
