Word For The Day, Tuesday June 3, 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".
1. antiaircraft fire, especially as experienced by the crews of combat airplanes at which the fire is directed.
2. criticism; hostile reaction; abuse
[193540; < German Fl ( ieger ) a ( bwehr ) k ( anone ) antiaircraft gun, equivalent to Flieger aircraft (literally, flyer) + Abwehr defense + Kanone gun, cannon ]
en seguida [ehn seh-GEE-dah]
Debemos llamarla en seguida.
We must call her immediately.
Who knew “flak” was an acronym? I just saw this on a History channel show about words that derived from our wars.
ugh. Hope there is no flak in my coffee.
Speakin’ of witch, the book “The Wrong Stuff” about the sometimes sobering, always very entertaining, sometimes hillarious mis-adventures of the 8th Air Force against flak in WWII is something hillary would NOT found interesting at all.
I am off to my pre-op tests to get cleared for surgery. I hope I take no flak and pass with flying colors.
You mean his imam?
Nope, his pastor.
did you read the pastor’s FB post to which i linked? Sounds like the happiest, slappiest, novus-ordo-on-stilts pastor ever.
It’s an interesting piece of information, if genuine.
As you said, there is a whole lot of suspicious information about this family.
Col. David Hunt on OReilly last night, said that Bergdahl called his former platoon the day after he left, SAYING that he had deserted. Hunt acted like it was beyond question. I had not seen that anywhere before, in what i have read.
Obama is taking some flak
(Though protected because he is Black)
He has reached a new low
Swapped five killers for Bowe
Now he lies to deflect the attack
looking like Pierre McGuire may be your new GM. He has wanted Sidney for a long time...here’s his chance...
We’ll see. Talk to me next April/May. Nothing means anything till then.
well i don’t think we will have to wait that long to know about the Caps. The fact that they are not cutting Brooks Laich loose from his $6mil K, when he probably cannot even pass a physical, really sounds like they do NOT want to blow up this team but rather as McPhee was always saying, “we like our team.” I am afraid this is putting all of the pressure on Barry to produce, and while i know he is an excellent coach, he is not a miracle worker and he has no say-so over personnel, but can only work with that which is on his roster. It is very disappointing. This news today is demoralizing a lot of fans. Ted Leonsis is a control freak and does not want the team blown up, and hired a GM who will abide by his wishes.
Everyone is getting BENt out of shape about it.
Speaking of WWII, have you seen the movie, “Monuments Men”? Oh my, it was such a reminder of the evil mind of hitler....
Did you pick up on the comment from your link that the Dad was worried if his son had become saved? In other words his son had no religious conviction at all before going.... which is interesting because my husband believes he converted which is the reason they didn’t kill him.
This poem was funny! Protected because he is black... lol
Maybe he’s Reek pretending to be Theon Greyjoy?
BT has been doing that for the past 17 years. It’s what he does. Makes the best of bad situations when he cannot control the flow of personnel in or out. I wouldn’t worry.
OH thanks - I”m having breakfast and you now put Reek in my head! lol
xshub and i saw it in the theater bc SU was playing Duke in bball that night, as i recall. It was interesting.
yes i did. i thought he was 20+ years old and has not accepted Christ while he was under the dad’s dominion and control?
it is unfair to put that burden on him. it is beyond annoying to fans that the mgmt will not blow up this team.
There it is.
You didn’t tell me that Stephen Root was in “Turn.” He plays such interesting characters.
I trust my husband’s knowledge of that satanic religion and he says it is unlikely he was kept alive unless he converted
I don’t think I’ve heard that word used, other than on the telenovelas made in Florida-I’m used to hearing/using “de vez”-at once...
Obama did a Carter again-
Looking like a total fool
Like Jimmy, he is drowning
In a terror appeasement pool
As with Benghazi, his idea
Of dodging a verbal attack
Is to send Rice out on Sunday
To protect him from the flak
But this time it didn’t work-
Those soldiers who are pissed
Are happy to say Bowe deserted,
Which Obama conveniently missed...
I want to see Bergdahl restored to health-if he is really even ill-declared legally competent and court martialed. I hope he spends the rest of his life in Leavenworth...
I knew you’d notice him. Good series so far.
We enjoyed it.Good movie.
I’m also pretty sure the “disillusioned” little jerk either converted or pretended very well-if he hadn’t, he’d be missing his head. If MrT5 were here, he’d be saying the deserter needed to go directly to a court(s)martial, do not pass go, etc.
so, how’s married life???
Thoughts and prayers.
I got as far as the duel with Simcoe last night, so I have 3 or 4 episodes to watch still.
That Simcoe sure radiates the jerk and makes you hate him just like the main Nazi character in Inglorious Basterds. Really makes you want to punch him in the face.
glad to hear it. have you gotten to your texts and emails which had you so consternated yesterday?
I was already getting emails in WiFi areas.
Got my texts, let’s just say there was nothing worth turning on my phone.
I was kind of hoping to hear on a potential job offer.
oh ok, that makes more sense, then.
I see a court-marshal in his future.
Oh no, are you without a job or just hoping for a different one?
Unreal - but the left will still support him - as I’ve said before - Bammer could kill a baby on live tv and the left would still praise him
well I certainly hope that he makes it in front of a military tribunal. The media appears to be covering this pretty well, even the MSM, and I imagine the hue and cry will continue to grow. This punk needs to feel consequences beyond those that he voluntarily undertook over there by his desertion.
