A Few Thoughts on a Saturday Afternoon



This entry is being brought to us by the letters “r” and “e”.  Here are some "re-" words which are anathema to a liberal leaning mind:

Republican (obviously)

Recession (as in “The most recent Republican presidential administration was plagued by a recession.”)

Retrogression (as in “A retrogression of American health care insurance regulations as imagined by the Republican Party can only lead to misery and suffering.”)

Resist (Oh my! However did that word creep into our little stream of consciousness word association exercise! Please do not “read” anything subliminal or “recalcitrant” into its inclusion here!)

And a final thought unrelated to anything:  Did you wonder why in the old Popeye cartoons we would always see his female antagonist “Sea Hag”, but never met her sister, “Land Bitch”?

(Thank you for reading. On second thought, go ahead and read all you want into this. Tee-hee!)

I was a Popeye addict when around 11/12 yet don't recall either of those female names - in fact none apart frm Olive Oyl.
Think I was always waiting fixated in keen anticipation for the inevitable confrontation with Bluto - and, of course, the downing of the spinach. (Da-da-da-dump-da-DAH!)

Other words in the same theme:

REACT
REGURGITATE
RENEW
REDUCE (as in Republicans' Power)
REFILL (as in my glass of wine...)

Thank you, Spo, for the suggestion. Alas, my blue collar bred palate cannot differentiate between whiskey, rye, scotch, bourbon or whatever. As our soon to be President might tweet, "Sad!"

Thank you Raybeard for your memories. Sea Hag did not make that many appearences, but the thought crossed my mind yesterday and I couldn't resist sharing.

Thank you, Bob. Resist, we shall!

Thank you, Janey. I forgot "regurgitate". Excellent suggestion.
