Word For The Day, Tuesday May 27, 2014
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".

Come and get it.

From Valerie Jarrett

We get lies in a big adult dose

cruel and unusual! ; )
Good Lord - that is an insane relationship!
Wasn’t there a song that starts like this?
By the dawn’s early early light ....
Good morning - we took a quick trip to visit family for Memorial Day. Got flowers and flags on the family graves and got home yesterday in time for a storm and some minor flooding in the area. We got over 4 inches of rain and more overnight (I forgot to empty the rain gauge).....more on the way. I love rain!!!
Maybe “the beast” is our government? Cashless means they know everything we do - they could deny purchases for alcohol or what Moosie determines to be “junk food”. they could deny donations to Christian or Conservative entities..... indeed scary.
God, that # annoyed the crap out of me this weekend. gutless, whining snots.
there was a HILARIOUS pic of the bubbaloon with his arm outstretched with that # that totally made me roar though, did you see that?
