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".
sequacious \sih-KWAY-shus\, adjective
Eager to prove that he was not merely a sequacious follower, Mario wrote a critical review of his former mentor's book.
"Fund investors are not simply sequacious followers of yield, but are also responding to the federal government's actions to stabilize the macro-economic environment."
From an article by Matthew Sheahan in High Yield Report, January 12, 2009
"Sequacious" is formed from the Latin "sequac-," or "sequax" (which means "inclined to follow" and comes from "sequi," "to follow") and the English "-ious." The original and now archaic meaning of "sequacious" was "inclined to follow" or "subservient." Although that meaning might as easily describe someone who willingly dropped into line behind a war leader, or who was unusually compliant or obedient in any sense, the concept gradually narrowed into the image of someone who blindly adopts ideas without much thought. Labeling a person "sequacious" is not very complimentary, and implies a slavish willingness to adopt a thought or opinion. See obamatron.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

Morning. Romney was my hope.....now that it’s over the days look bleak, again. I am going to have to find some new interests.
Mark Levin speaks to the sequacious media and liberal republicans.
Pardon pre-caffeinated cynical humor.
Enjoy your WFTDay....
Dang--- I almost mispelled it....
Couldn’t sleep - even after the 12 hour shift ended, didn’t feel like eating yesterday .... Blah’ed completely out.
Obummer will completely sequishusa AND the economy ... and you can’t tell me that result wasn’t/isn’t deliberate?
A+ for you. Shouldn’t that fist be raised over his head? I’m remembering the Olympics from a long time ago. Or is that the normal pose for a Chicago pol?
Yes, we have elections every two years, and the same people who stay at home, then complain for the next two years, only to repeat that same behavior time after time.
I see what you did there.
A for you. :-) Big game this weekend.
If the shoe fits...
It’s time the Republicans take note: The US is no longer Center Right as a majority. It is Center Left. And it will continue to grow Center Left because of the sequacious nature of that majority: Union members who toe the Union line and vote as ordered, front stoop drug-addled welfare recipients who live off the dole, the elderly who vote Dem because their parents were Dems, college kids being told their loans will be swept away by the government, minorities who ignore actual history for the history provided by their corrupt leadership, the lazy, the drop outs, the illegals, the ecological dimwits, the Pop culture....
It’s Center Left, and as long as elections roll around that the sh** in the White House gives away free phones, dangles amnesty to illegals, and promises to pay for birth control and abortions, it’ll never swing back.
I don’t know the best course to pursue to attract people to the Republican party. Giving up core principles is definitely not the way to go.
