2. shameless; impudent; audacious: a barefaced lie.
3. without concealment or disguise; boldly open: a barefaced approach.

Origin: 1580s, "with face uncovered or shaven;" see bare + face. Thus, in a bad sense, "shameless" (1670s). Cf. effrontery.

The barefaced lies of the IRS should be typed in boldface in every newspaper. The odds of separate hard-drive crashes that only affected the computers of those IRS employees whose emails to and from the White House could be damaging are close to zero. It is akin to simultaneous heart attacks afflicting each of the witnesses who are about to testify in a mob trial.

Homework time!

For extra credit, I have a Free Republic website issue.
I am the proud owner of two iPod Touch devices. On the newer one, every time I turn it on and go to Free Republic, I have to reenter my (long) screen name and (even longer) password. I must have a box checked (or unchecked) that is causing this, since my older device works without necessitating the extraneous typing of those tiny little letters.

Any thoughts?

Islamic extremists keep challenging Florida ID rules because they do not want their women to appear barefaced in photos.

Have you checked your account perameters? There is a box that says “remember my password”. Check that box.

There are options on the screen where you log in that either keep you signed in on this particular computer or log you out automatically when you close the browser. Pick the right option when you sign in and you are gold.

With the world now FAR beyond what was envisioned
and underestimated in sophomoric "1984".

Today there remain several relevant, important double-plus unbarefaced things.

1. Executive Director In Obamas’ Lois Lerner Approved Terrorist Empire REVEALED As A U.S. Intelligence ...

As always, 2.

The extra plus is for your suggestion on logging in. It looks like the box I needed to check was "More Convenient." That, apparently, keeps login info without the need to re-enter. Thanks.

Thanks, Dave. Of course, if I were "gold" instead of "TruthShallSetYouFree," logging in wouldn't be such a big deal.

Terrorist organizations with ties to the Regime had no trouble getting tax-exempt status from Lois Lerner. Those groups with an anti-Regime bias, i.e., those that favor Freedom, Liberty, and the Constitution, are still waiting.

“Proud owner” was slightly tongue-in-cheek, as you probably surmised.

H'mm. How many of our responses will deal with the barefaced liars ubiquitous in our gov't, who keep getting more and more (SHEESH!!) barefaced over time?

How barefaced can they get? (No, don't tell me.)

The Obama regime’s admonitions that they just happen to have lost Lois Lerner’s e-mails with the White House for 2 years AND they just happen to have lost the e-mails for six other people AND refused to get the e-mails of the back up tapes AND recycled her hard drive AND just happen to have canceled a contract with a archival service just after all this happened is a barefaced Lie.

Try “Most Convenient” on the right-hand side of the login page. So far, that has worked for me.

I think that it's a matter of style rather than a question of usage, but I've long wondered about choosing between 'barefaced', 'boldfaced', and 'bald-faced' in sentences such as these:

Perhaps a well-known and respected dictionary or English language textbook should use that set of three sentences to explore any nuanced differenes in their meanings.

Oh, have I mentioned that Obama is a liar?

I don’t think “everybody” knows what is happening. A good half of them worry about Kimye and couldn’t name the VP or a Senator if you put a gun to their head.

You’re right. Half a century of liberals running the education system has turned us into a country of morons. There are still some of us more seasoned citizens who have a clue, but by and large, it’s Bread and Circuses (aka Kardashians and Reality Shows) for the great unwashed masses.

The really amazing thing to me: Because the United States had been the global economic leader for over a century, the populace still feels entitled to the high living standards enjoyed by previous generations. The current crop is too dumb to realize that those standards were earned by DINT of hard work, education, and sacrifice, along with delayed gratification. Those concepts are foreign to most young people, and all democrats.

That’s what happens when they fire the GM first when the coach should have been fired and the GM kept to help hire a replacement. Poor judgment and waiting around means you don’t have the best candidates left when it’s time to hire. I heard Sid’s win was almost unanimous so congrats to him.

I don’t know, in our case, the GM NEEDED to be gone. George McPhee didn’t need to help select the next coach. Maybe the Pens should have waited.

I don’t have a clue-I make/receive calls and text messages on my cell phone and use it mostly for work-all the other stuff is relegated to the computer.

The IRS can’t seem to hire
A boss who doesn’t fall
Into the barefaced lying
That infuriates us all

The new one is yet closer
To contempt with the braying-
That he is an arrogant ass
Goes even without saying

It is glaringly apparent now
That people have had enough-
Jail that idiot for contempt
To show congress can be tough...
