I try not . . . I really do! I can get inflamed by looking at pictures of politicians. Simply a waste of room, either in print, or TV. I no longer do the TV thing, news, nor these fine educational shows!
I do however partake, in a movie once in a while, when I wish for my mind to drift away for a spell, as in a fairy tale world like I did as a child. Making me feel better, somehow, in a way I do not fully understand!
The words sequester, used this way, here comes the sequester! Also the very next paragraph, the politics of sequestration have been fierce!
No, this is not words from a Bruce Willis movie, where you know Bruce is gonna get them bad guys! That at least would be some entertainment and some good one liners, like in The Die-Hard movies.
The first thing I thought of is? How many people even know what the word sequester or the more uppity version sequestration means?
Sequester means to separate; segregate. Other really nice words that form this meaning are, to take and hold (property) by judicial authority. To take over; confiscate; seize, esp. by authority! ( I don't like this word!)
Sequestered, removed from others; secluded. (Wow hate this one even more!!)
Sequestration, (I'm fearful to look at this longer version!!!) more of the same o, bigger, fancier, lawyer lingo to me! Words like seclusion, separation, taking, holding, legal dispute, confiscation, by court or government action.
Sequestrum, a piece of dead bone which has become separated from the surrounding healthy bone. (I like this word though!)
The article I dare to read, talks of finger-pointing and a Washington standoff. Well now I visualize the first part of the old television show Gunsmoke. Where Marshall Dillon walks into the street to face off with a gunslinger. At least here, you knew there, was one good guy! There only be losers in this Washington standoff!
The article paints a rosy picture of little pink houses for you and me . . . oh yeah! "There are no meaningful efforts in Washington to avert." No need to go any farther, that sums it up!
I CAN'T TAKE NO MORE IF YOU WANT TO BE PUNISHED READ ABOUT IT! YOU KNOW WHERE! I TRY NOT TO LOOK AT THEM PICTURES OF POLITICIANS, "ONE OF THESE DAYS I'M AFRAID I MIGHT BURST INTO FLAMES, AS IN SPONTANEOUS HUMAN COMBUSTION!
