Word For The Day, monday, 7/7/14
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. fierce; cruel; savagely brutal.
2. brutally harsh; vitriolic; scathing: his truculent criticism of her work.
3. aggressively hostile; belligerent.
Etymology: c.1540, from L. truculentus "fierce, savage," from trux (gen. trucis) "fierce, wild."
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 Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
To combat illegal alien truculence, citizens are undertaking to do that which the gov't will not.
No pushing at the door please!
holiday week traffic bridges both sides of the long weekend. hallelujah.
I dont know what truculent means, but if its something good, thats me.
The seeking, escorting, importing, distribution
and quartering of hundreds of thousands
criminal illegals aliens, some also terrorists,
narcoterrorists, felons, some weaponzed,
some as sex slaves, and with known mules
carrying incurable diseases to 57 states
is nothing but truculent treason.
Today’s truculent treason has been brought
to YOU, and abetted, condoned, and aided,
by the complicit EXEMPT US Congress.
A+++ I cannot STAND brian burke. he has very little to commend him hockey-wise, and is arrogant beyond belief. not wild about Patrick either and his pushing of the gay envelope constantly bc of the deceased gay brother.
Morning. My commute to the living room took less than a minute, even with my gimpy knee.
XS, I’m sorry; I wrecked that truculent me.
A+++ is he still alive?
are you ok???? ; )
Gee, I thought that was a rather good pun.
Obama is arrogant, truculent
Michelle bans all foods that are succulent
Amidst liberal praise
Middle fingers, they raise
Lest you forget where the “f*** you” went
A+++ it was : )
A++++ just finished Blood Feud, it rings true to me. The Obams hate the clintoons with a passion and vice versa. and OMG did you hear Joan Rivers this weekend, call Mooch a TRANNY, we were rolling on the floor!
Mooch bans goodies for the “little people”, while sucking down the good stuff herself.
It appears that our government is becoming more truculent in its treatment of citizen who oppose its Marxist national agenda.
(Sorry to be so negative this early morn)
Ha! That’s how I first learned about that word!
good for you!!
have you read Blood Feud? I highly recommend it. it’s a quick read and entertaining.
A+++ not negative, merely the truth!
Yo’ means we bees havin’ to learn this?
Comment from a dear friend who was the Dean of Admissions of the nation’s largest community college: The after high school “We bees gwine to collie” crowd as a rule spends the first full year in remedial English courses that are specifically designed to bring them up to a 10th grade reading level.
BTW, check out the apostrophe in the Free Republic donation solicitation above:
“... it’s people ...”?
I have no problem with kids spending the first semester in remedial English. my youngest daughter has a learning disability and spent a semester in remedial English in her first year of community college, despite the fact that she went to private school and had a tutor throughout HS. That it is common just means that the public school system is a failure.
I am looking for something to read. Haven’t been able to concentrate to read till this past weekend. Read a couple of books. Light, mindless reading. I will check it out. Love kindle, I can buy it from my chair at home and get it instantly.
yes, that’s the only way to go, though I was brought reluctantly to the kindlebooks, and only bc it came with the ipad. Also, JKRowling’s second in the series of Cormoran Strike detective novels is out, I enjoyed the first one awhile back so bought and started the second yesterday.
For entertainment value alone, I like him. He is serious about his hockey.
Haha - a saucy one to begin the day!
I wonder how quickly Joan Rivers will lose her tv show?
Me too - thinking I will download blood feud today. I hadn’t thought to ask if any of you had read it
The spouse is off to Comcast for new boxes and hopefully a better deal or we are out of there. We’ve been customers for over 20 years but the rates keep going up and quality keeps going down. No DVR, no special services unless you count HD which irks me that they charge extra for it(like touch tone phone charges for 25 years when that’s all anyone has had). Our cable went out after the power went out so we were without for about 6 hours yesterday. I’m glad it wasn’t very hot. We got internet back but not cable.
Not to keep bringing up Blood Feud, but I will! it verifies how thin-skinned and grudge-bearing that lot is, and you KNOW there will be repercussions for this!
++ we can hope that is what will happen.
I had read the Amateur, and then the NYPost excerpts piqued my interest in this. There were parts that I full on LOLed. Lots of quotes, not for attribution, but given the blood-thirsty individuals involved, not at all surprising, and I believe every word!
nothing about Hillary’s lesboicism though he says they have not slept together in dozens of years now.
oh power out when it’s hot is a concern! I have a freezer full of cookies outside in the garage and we better not lose power this summer.
A transformer caught fire and knocked us out for hours. It was nice and quiet. But I was worried about it getting hot and the dogs. I knew we could always go to the mall but I have yet to make the service dogs vests for them to accompany us.
in the Apple store yesterday was a yorkie in a stroller. wouldn’t have even noticed but it started to YIP and then the owners opened it up and we saw the little thing. odd freak humanizing of a yorkie.
At least hillary is smart enough not to take the STD express in bill’s bed!
It talks about how the penthouse on top of the clintoon library is his bachelor pad and how he cats around in Little Rock all the time!
A cousin of my husband just moved out of Little Rock, saying it was quickly becoming a dangerous place....and her husband is a police officer
You can attribute most of the governmental turbulence in Washington to Obama’s truculence & utter disdain for the Congress and Supreme Court
A+++ he’s all of that isn’t he?
>> That [remedial English courses are taught in community colleges] just means that the public school system is a failure.
Exactly my point.
Where is old Hobbes anyway?
Lots of traffic on the Peace bridge yesterday. Going into the US was really backed up. Going north we only had to wait in a line of maybe a dozen cars.
Peace bridge sounds gay until you realize the other option for getting here is the Rainbow bridge.
Can you cover for me tomorrow?
The smugness of the IRS
May soon be fading fast
Pursued by the threat
Of e-mails from the past
The truculent attitude
That has been in display
Hopefully will no longer
Be a card for them to play
If even one lost e-mail
Is retrieved by someone
It will give prosecutors
The ticket for some fun...
