Word For The Day, Monday, June 9, 2014 –maleficent


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".

maleficent; adj.doing evil or harm; harmfully malicious: maleficent destroyers of reputations.

Etymology:1670–80; back formation from Latin maleficentia maleficence; see -ent
Hailing from the Latin word meaning "the dice" or "chance" alea, aleatory first surfaced in English in the late seventeenth century.


The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with >> WFTD.

Well of course we figured he figured he was far more maleficent than a mere deserter.

I nominate Susan Rice, as the malificent liar of the week. She is too educated to be doing this because she is stupid, so what else could be the reason?

A+++ none of them is stupid- they are arrogant and willfully maleficent, but not stupid, so there has to be a method to their madness.

Bowe Bergdahl the traitor, maleficent
Susan Rice says that he is magnificent
Served with honor, distinction
Tried for US extinction
Our reward for 5 killers not worth a cent

yes, i don’t get it. xshub thinks that maybe he’s being prevented from talking to them until they can keep their stories straight, but they seem to be saying it’s his decision not to speak to them.

So sorry to hear of Chanel's passing. Our pets are family. I just lost my Freedom's Rocket, who had been my companion since he was 9 weeks old a couple of weeks ago. Doc thought it was just a unmovable kidney stone, turned into multi site cancer. Rock lived nearly 13 yrs, he was a mini poodle. His room buddy Stan is 12 and taking it real hard.

RE Obama and his ilk, It can't be soon enough to have this maleficent menace lifted off our backs… It's about time the Iceman left for a President who genuinely cares about this country and its future, where we don't have to be barraged by a manic fleet of lackeys & Media apologists who defame clients at Congressional hearings, and otherwise prostitute themselves for this Administration.

For a long time now, American citizens have felt anemic at the polls with the Democrats and GOP-e differing very little in their approach to our current problems. However, we do need to find & support Conservative candidates of conviction, so as not to have the aftermath of this "Epic Fail" cemented into our system for generations to come.

“I make absolutely no apologies for making sure that we get back a young man to his parents and that the American people understand that this is somebody’s child and that we don’t condition whether or not we make the effort to try to get them back,” he said.

This is terrible writing. Did ozero go off prompter here or are his talking points writers incapable of speaking correctly? Get back a young man to his parents?

Thanks. Took the day off to grieve and figured we could try to get xs baby’s passport. Because she was 14 it expired when she turned 18. And bc she’s now an adult its a new process. The merrifield post ofc has a passport ofc. We took the forms home last werk, filled them out, had her pix done and all the documentation. Were told if you come at 9 you can get on the standby list. I made an actual appt for a day in July but thought if we can just get this done today all the better. At 9 there were 20+ There already and it was a third world nuthouse and after 2.5 hrs we left without the passport. My nerves are shot.

Come up here. Thursdays the Westmoreland County courthouse’s prothonotary office is open till 6. They will do the whole thing for you, take the pictures, etc. Of course, it helps if you fill out the forms beforehand.

We got my wife a passport and my daughter a passport card for our trip to Niagara Falls. Only took about 3 weeks to get them back.

I’m glad you had the extra time, and so sorry she was lost-losing a much loved pet is awful. Is Jules doing okay?

Sometimes you wonder where
Some insane ideas come from-
And if those who promote them
Are maleficent or just dumb

Like all the silly whining
About what other people eat
What they consider enjoyable
From website to edible treat

Nannies should mind their own-
Otherwise the whole Obama bunch
Will be held to the preaching-
Beginning with Michelle’s lunch...

i think he is ok, he looks a little sad, but right now he is barking his ass off at the workmen across the street that he can see from the study window. OH let me tell you what happened this AM. i was sitting at the kitchen table he was at my feet, xshub had left for work about 5 min or so before and i hear this thumping around in the garage. i thought, what did he forget that he’s back here for? and he didn’t come in and i still heard the thumping so i went out to see what he was doing and as i opened the door from the laundry room to the garage i saw what i thought was a mangy looking cat exiting the garage, but when he turned to look back at me i saw the BANDIT EYES and thought OMG a damn raccoon is in my garage trying to get into the dog food bins in there! He could not get the tops off, because the one screws on, and the other has a clasp. i swear we have aggressive wildlife in this neighborhood! we had a doe in the yard literally 5 feet from the house, eating apples which fall in our yard from the neighbor’s tree last weekend and then again this past Saturday, and then we had had the fox on the back deck a few months back. i feel like they are all pressed up against our windows wanting to come in the house with us, LOL!

That is so cool to have the critters come in so close in the burbs, isn’t it? They are the dominant ones out here, so they are everywhere, but I love having them around, even if it means I have the garden fenced.

Those locking can tops work really well-the only varmint that can get into them are rats, and maybe determined squirrels-and only if the container is plastic.

There is maleficent economic disaster under Obama. This is really happening to a city. Watch the deterioration of entire city blocks in Detroit. I am sure Detroit had it's problems before Obama, but this is shocking. I am betting this is the same black population that voted for theOne, and look how he repays them.
