Word For The Day, November 6, 2012
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".
to express sharp, stern disapproval of; reprove; reprimand.
sharp, stern disapproval; reproof; reprimand.
[12751325; Middle English rebuken (v.) < Anglo-French rebuker ( Old French rebuchier ) to beat back, equivalent to re- re- + bucher to beat, strike < Germanic ]
The sun is out for the first time in ten days, I was lucky number 13 voter at my precinct at 7:30, and I’ve got some Belgian Trappist Monk ale waiting for me at home.
I feel fine.
Its Election Day.
Remember Benghazi, and that terrorist Hasan actually worked
with racketeer/traitor Obama during the pRes_ _ential Transition.
Show your rebuke and VOTE the reprehensible, reprobate Traitor OUT.
Today will be a rebuke of obozo and all his works.
Hopefully, today’s election results will REBUKE the liberal marxist traitors forever and remove them from the national scene completely.
I can’t believe this day is here.....
I actually got up early to vote. I’m not a morning person.
Was electing Obama a fluke
That’s correctable with a rebuke?
Foreign policy? Economy?
Would improve with Mitt Romney
A re-election would make me re-puke
Drinking too rewind mmay cause you to rebuke it up.
....Rebuke that jerk.
Drinking too much rewind may cause you to rebuke it up.
I feel much better now....much better.
A triple post? It’s time to lay off the coffee.
Almost had to get feisty in the voting line. Dem sample ballots were blue, Repubs green. We being informed voters didn’t need one ; ) but there was an Americanized Asian woman behind us with a blue sample ballot. There was an elderly Asian couple behind her with questionable English. I didn’t hear what they said but heard the woman behind me say do you want this one? Are you sure you don’t want this one? The third time she said it I turned around and looked at her like WHAT are you doing? And she stopped. She knew! Seriously!! Make me report you for voter intimidation!
Ok now that I see the WFTD: I soundlessly rebuked the Asian woman with a look.
I just hope that it is prescient that America's decision will be to send obama HOME with a strong rebuke and repudiation of his one complete term in office.
There were two guys hanging out in the back of a Blazer at my polling place. But they were there representing two local repubs, so all was cool.
All precincts in VA reporting long waits. i am working at home today because we are having the carpeting torn out of the family room and hardwood installed to match the kitchen floor. Mr. B, our Persian contractor for the past 20+ years is very conservative. As for Obama, Mr B said “i cannot even breathe his name..” for disgust for him, i presume. He also waited an hour and a half to vote before coming here to work. Xsbaby was allowed to skip school and is out door knocking for the FCRC.
xshub’s phone quit on him this AM, he’s getting error msgs etc. he said TODAY OF ALL DAYS! so his first stop en route the ofc after voting was Verizon.
I’d be interested in seeing how many voters there are per machine. The longest I ever had to wait was about 30 minutes on the night we all voted to reject a new sales tax to pay for stadia. And that was in the “after work” busy period.
I rebuked the D-Puke weeks ago via absentee ballot
Now it’s hope & pray for the best — but being Bills fans, we can deal with the disappointment somewhat if things don’t that go as they should.
Hey, if we’ve all been deluding ourselves for the past month, I can’t think of a better bunch of imaginary internet friends to have shared the delusion with. ;-)
i would be astounded if voting was as quick here as you have in podunk PA, Westmoreland Co. like i said, we have a ZILLION diff languages being spoken by voters. There was a pollworker who kept going up and down the hall of the elementary school where we vote telling people to take their ID OUT now, don’t wait until you get up there to pull it out of your purse, wallet, pocket etc. that that was creating a hold up. I saw two hispanic women at the table where they check you off with some piece of paper that they were analyzing to see if it was sufficient for proof of residency i guess. they don’t let you in the room, giving a HIPAA-like distance, so i couldn’t hear exactly what the problem was. But you don’t have ANY of that, you have homogenous population who have been voting in that spot for the last millenium, so of course it’s streamlined.
Polls open in VA at 6 am, we prob should have gone then. that’s what i did when voting for W, and it was quicker. We went at 7 am today, which is the before work busy period.
Maybe I’ll break out the Bubbly early this afternoon and get started ;-)
and we had two constitutional amdts and some bond issues. i told xsgirls if you see the words BORROW $ or take on a DEBT the vote is NO,so all bond issues are NO. the one amdt was to restrict eminent domain, so that was a yes, and the other was something about calling a legislative session. We discussed it all before voting so it took us no time, but you have dimwits going in that have no idea what is what and it’s going to take them longer.
Aren’t the ballots in English? If people are too ignorant, regardless of language, to show an ID, sign a book and punch some buttons, then maybe they should reconsider voting. How do these people manage to buy milk in the grocery store?
You seem to be missing my larger point - that a 90 minute wait means the state has not provided enough voting machines/locations for the size of the population.
it’s in God’s hands. i went to adoration at St James last night, Fr. Horkin had a talk, scripture reading, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the rosary. it calmed me considerably. God said he would spare Sodom if there was just one just man. we have 50% of our population who are just. Hopefully, it’s enough.
spoken like a true provincial jagoff from Western PA ; ) Believe it or not major urban areas have tons of foreigners who live, shop, work and VOTE here.
i am not missing your point, but i don’t know how feasible it is to have a zillion voting machines when the turn out is only occasionally way above the norm.
besides, you are acting like my experience was outside the norm. it’s not. Paula waited an hour and a half last friday evening to vote EARLY in Montgomery co., MD. Do you know anyone voting in downtown Pittsburgh or a more densely populated suburb than podunk WestMoCo?
Pittsburgh Dad Meet and Greet with the creators of "Pittsburgh Dad" Chris Preksta and Curt Wootton this Saturday Nov 10th at 11:00AM! Join us at the Cash-In-Culture store on the second level of Century III Mall! 3075 Clairton Rd. West Mifflin PA 15123! Hope to see yinz there:)
You’re the one who mentioned people needing language assistance. They should all know enough English to be able to vote — it is a requirement of citizenship (if naturalized).
As for the number of machines, I’m sure it could be improved.
No, I don’t know anyone voting in a “city” environment. I’m not sure why population density is supposed to excuse poor government.
Voting must be like childbirth - people forget about the pain they went through right after it’s over. If I had to wait 90 minutes to vote, I would be making sure that never happened again.
My brother registered himself as a Democrat this time so he could vote Kucinich out so the other incumbent Democrat fighting for the seat would win .........
He was not the only republican to do this, several of his friends did the same in Cuyahoga County.
My brother has been polled by CNN, Columbus Dispatch, and some other big dem polling outlet.....he told them all he was voting for Obozo.......then Yesterday he walked his Absentee ballot into the vote poll and it was a vote for Romney.
There was a line of about 50 people in front of us at 8:30 am. We’ve never had more than 20 in front before. I think it’s a good sign because we’re a nice Republican suburb.
well apparently we do not require english fluency in order to vote. maybe your twitter feed doesn’t have the same stuff as mine, but JRubinblogger just tweeted about the long line/wait at her polling station in Fairfax and someone else tweeted that it was a 3 hour wait in Ballston [arlington Co.] where they were voting. Why a gov’t should go out and invest in a mess of voting machines that are going to be used MAYBE once every 4 years [obviously were not required four years ago here!]doesn’t seem PRUDENT.
well i sure hope that the republicans in VA waiting in long lines to vote aren’t the pu$$y you are ; )
You wanna keep bickering till the polls close? ;-)
I’m sure you saw this.
Awesome tweet from Tebow!
Got to my polling place and had to wait for a parking spot. Many had gone out back to park in the back lot. WOW. Never saw so many folks voting there in my life. People were moving right along, no lines, but lots voting.
i only bicker when you make some completely ridiculous statement and refuse to back off of it! i told xshub what you’ve been saying and he roared because he knows where you live! LOL!
Not an Obama voter in sight this morning at the polls-it was very early, but I think the last of the few liberals out here were converted by the loss of snowbird tourists (and with them, most of the businesses and jobs in this tiny rural community), thanks to the price of gas and job losses all over the US curtailing travel...
I’m praying for king Obama
To receive a stinging rebuke-
The chaos of “his” four years
Was enough to make me puke
But he’s not the only problem-
Sensible people have to show
All his bolsheviks and enablers
That this is not where we will go
Vote out every starry-eyed leftist-
Their ideas are the dated and stale
Visions of koolaid drinking lunatics
That are permanently beyond the pale
I see no reason why they should not just be shunned as being out of touch, ignorant and weak-which they are. Then it would be another 40 years before they get it together again-or if we learn a lesson from history, never again...
Tell him I also get annoyed that green card holders are allowed into the same immigration line at the airport as we natural born citizens. ;-)
And nonsense. You bicker for amusement. I have only said two completely uncontroversial things:
a) that people who can’t figure out the voting process shouldn’t be pampered
b) when gov’t fails to provide reasonable service to its citizens it should be criticized and rectified.
