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. ;-)

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
Rise and shine!
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.
A for you, F- for the takers, enablers, and sycophants on the left.
With arguments forged and fallacious
And an attitude crudely pugnacious
“The One” won once more
‘cause the hordes that adore
Him are uninformed lemmings, sequacious
The US may be Center Left politically, but I think the great majority of the country lives life based on conservative principles. Hard work, personal responsibility, faith. There are plenty who do not live their lives this way, but most do.
A+ for you. Someone counted how many times Romney said thank you in his gracious speech. 27. And how many times did ozero reference himself in his speech. 27. Coincidence? I think not.
I think that is the group that makes up the red in the election map.
"I dont know the best course to pursue to attract people to the Republican party. Giving up core principles is definitely not the way to go."
But the smart mouse knows that the tiny bit of cheese in the trap, denotes a much larger amount of cheese that is not in the trap.
Going on the dole provides limited wealth, but becoming independent and self-reliant is the only course to truly unlimited wealth.
With turnouts in my County over 90% and votes for Romney averaging 65%, I know these were not sequacious followers of Obumbum. But, little good did that do. Wisconsisn’s electoral votes still went to the Won because of the voracious appetite for freebies in Milwaukee, to the south of me.
Is that true? Then we need to
ly**h impeach a couple of Dane County judges here in WI. Dane County (read Madison) judges suspended our duly passed and signed Photo ID law.
Ouch. A for you.
Good. That means the money "gravy" train can stop. And the toruist train. And the oil train. I understand that a huge pool of oil has been found under Nevada. We should use our own. Maybe Obama will wake up to reality on the drilling process. We can pray.
i am still very sad and i am extremely bitter. my inclination when seeing a panhandler near my ofc, should they approach me, will be to say, I’m sorry, you need to go to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, HE is the one handing out free stuff, i have no free stuff to give away.
There was a program on t.v. last nite about bunch of yokes chasing a sequacious critter through the woods. They were definitely servile but not much on the intellectual stuff.
They were probably chasing that fella used to run the drug store and started sampling the stock. Called him Fowler the Howler on account of his....problem.
Well now, you keep your chins up, bring your own jug and we’ll keep a spot by the fire open for you even if you don’t smell too good.
To do ANYTHING to avoid sequestration, I fear that bruised Republican legislators will simply sequaciously accede to POUTUS...
At least you’re not in with the “the election was stolen” crazies.
No. It wasn’t stolen.
#1. It’s is ridiculously hard to knock off incumbents. This is why I still shake my head at people who think that Harry Reid was necesasrily a goner in 2010. Now I do think there may be some light fraud in NV,CO,PA? but not enough to matter in the path to 270.
#2. The candidate matters. ‘Nuff said.
#3. Obama has a ridiculous get out the vote machine that will bring every dirtbag and welfare loser to the polls every 4 years. The good news is this does not work in off years and may not work in 2016 as Obama will not be on the ballot.
#4. Negative advertising works.
i’m sure there was tons o fraud, but i don’t think it was the deciding factor.
i was talking to xsgirls last night and saying how it’s so odd, youth are supposedly so into being edgy and rebellious. well how is it that the majority of young people are leftwingers, when that is MAINSTREAM now. that’s the norm in popular culture etc. How are you so rebellious and different from your parents when voting for legalizing dope and gay marriage and thinking Obams is all that and a zillion bags o chips, when YOUR PARENTS AGREE WITH YOU? i would think that to truly be COUNTERCULTURE in today’s society is to be a conservative youth.
oh Lordy, xsbaby is going to be brawling with/unfriending a mass of people on FB, i’m getting incensed emails from her.
i apologize for all the times i ragged on you for being an eeyore, since that was the proper outlook all along.
No need to apologize. Simply saying that I was right is sufficient.
You know a handful of votes in OH, VA, and FL, and we would have only been 5 EV's short.
you were right before you were wrong ; )
I’ll take it.
And you know what, I’m seeing some thoughtful soul searching out there that I did not see after 2008. There was none after 2008.
Seeing it On all sorts of issues, especially foreign policy. This is a very good thing.
because after 2008 we chalked it up to white guilt/black pride. in 2012 people voted for him knowing he was a disaster on just about every score.
