Word For The Day, Monday, 9/25/17
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".
capable of or successful in producing an intended result; effective as a means, remedy, etc
Etymology: from Latin efficāx powerful, efficient, from efficere to achieve; see effect
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.
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
I don't think Mike Tomlin chose the most efficacious means of dealing with the take a knee BS. The only hero yesterday was Alejandro Villanueva, the Steeler who stood and SANG along with the national anthem. Tomlin also had some balls criticizing him for it in the press conference afterwards. I hope there is a backlash against him for that.
No pushing at the door please!
Watching football is not efficacious to supporting your nation.
Jose, can you see?......................
I’m not normally one to notice these things and comment, but you spelled the word wrong in the title.
I know it’s rare for you to be so observant, let alone to feel moved to speak up about it, so I am not offended. LOL
I thought I misspelled it somewhere but couldn’t find where when I went back to look. oh well.
Trump’s junk-yard-dog punch on unpatriotic millionaire snowflake NFL players (and owners) was a most efficacious bloody nose.
A+++ and the moronic NFL and their players have NOOOO idea that the populace by and large is with trump on this. They may not like trump, may even hate/despise him, but they know that what the NFL players are doing is wrong. I want severe repercussions, I want huge drops in attendance, in viewership etc. and I want these jack@$$es to GET IT.
Song by many including the Scaffold (Liverpool group with Mike “McGear” McCartney:
We’ll drink a drink a drink to Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink, the savior of the human race
Because she invented medicinal compounds
Most EFFICACIOUS in every way
(Song about Lydia Pinkham who invented a tonic to help pregnant women in pain.It contained alcohol.)
dang! that’s interesting, A++++
Nah, I took two years of Spanish in HS.........44 years ago......If I’m ever in a Spanish speaking country and need to go to the library I’m all set!
¿Donde está la biblioteca?..........................
Elsewhere on these threads an alert FReeper noted 10% of the players slandered the flag. The other 90% need to speak up before the game is lost.
As I Tweeted yesterday, can anybody finish this sentence?
“The NFL protesters will go back to respecting the anthem when ______”
It’s “efficacious” NOT “efficaceous”!!!! This word is usually used in the pharmaceutical world.
Hopefully, the votes for “Alternative for Germany” (AfD) will be efficacious in driving the muslims out of Germany and out of Europe, and defeating “AntFa” once and for all!!!!
Muhammadans OUT!!!! AntiFa OUT!!!! PHOOEY to both of them!!!!
Did you see my tweet that Villanueva was my new fave steeler and that someone should come out with his jersey NOT NFL approved, with proceeds to go to a military charity and I bet they would sell at ton. Those two tweets each got over 500 likes, retweets etc. and My fave response which got a zillion retweets of it's own, was the guy who said, I'm from Texas, don't like the Steelers but would buy five of those jerseys!
“They grow up”?
yes, I’m aware but thanks for bringing it to my attention again. A+++ I hope Germany can succeed otherwise they are totally doomed.
