Facilichatter

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: Fa sil i chat er

Sentence: You have to change only one letter in worD, to make it worK. In reality, it takes a lot more than that! Perhaps the most difficult task, any politician or employer faces, is using words to motivate others to take action, to do the hard work, and the right work. Sadly, such facilichatter remains a dream. People want money for their labor, and other tangible rewards, as well as, the right chatting up! We are all beautifuldreamers, for we all, carry hopes and dreams for a better world ... and most people work to make them happen.

Etymology: FACILITATOR, CHATTER. Facilitator - somebody enabling something to happen. Chatter - utter words, especially words that will inspire sombody to make something happen. /// BEAUTIFULDREAMER is an eponym for any person who hopes and dreams of a better world. Beautful Dreamer is also the title of a song. The lyrics are in comments below.

COMMENTS:

Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me, Starlight and dew drops are waiting for thee; Sounds of the rude world heard in the day, Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd a way! Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song, List while I woo thee with soft melody; Gone are the cares of life's busy throng. Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me! Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me! Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea, Mermaids are chanting the wild lorelie, Over the streamlet vapours are borne, Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn. Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart, E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea; Then will all clouds of sorrow depart, Beautiful dreamer awake unto me! - silveryaspen, 2009-01-20: 01:34:00

Terrific word and sentence. Thanks for the words to Stephen Foster's "Beautiful dreamer" Another of his great works is "Hard Times" There's a song that will linger forever in our ears; Oh Hard times come again no more. Tis the song, the sigh of the weary, Hard Times, hard times, come again no more Many days you have lingered around my cabin door; Oh hard times come again no more. While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay, There are frail forms fainting at the door; Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say Oh hard times come again no more. There's a pale drooping maiden who toils her life away, With a worn heart whose better days are o'er: Though her voice would be merry, 'tis sighing all the day, Oh hard times come again no more. 'Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave, 'Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore, 'Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave, Oh! Hard Times, come again no more. Sad to think that Foster was dead, of alcoholism, at 37. - OZZIEBOB, 2009-01-20: 04:19:00

metrohumanx Brilliant and inspirational. Foster was truly great. Might I add: This land is your land, this land is my land From California, to the New York Island From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters This land was made for you and me… As I was walking a ribbon of highway I saw above me an endless skyway I saw below me a golden valley This land was made for you and me… I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts And all around me a voice was sounding This land was made for you and me… The sun comes shining as I was strolling The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling The fog was lifting a voice come chanting This land was made for you and me… As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there And that sign said - no tress passin' But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin! Now that side was made for you and me!… In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple Near the relief office - I see my people And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin' If this land's still made for you and me. -WOODY GUTHRIE - metrohumanx, 2009-01-20: 11:22:00

Confessayer

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: kun-fehs-say-er

Sentence: Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States, would take his place in history as The Great Confessayer. Throughout his administrations, from January 20, 2009 to January 20, 2017, he consistently attempted to express the universal hopes and dreams of all Americans and humankind in his words and through his actions. There was always some discussion and indecision as to whether he should be called The Great ProConfessayer by his detractors because of his seeming attempts to please everyone and The Great ConProfessayer by his adherents because of his cool and professorial manner during times of great crisis.

Etymology: Combining confess and essay. From the French, essayer, to try or attempt through writing one's thoughts and confess, to tell or make known one's thoughts, sins, etc. Also a slight nod to Ronald Reagan, the 40th President, known as The Great Communicator.

Edeneologist

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: ee-DEN-ee-OL-uh-jizt

Sentence: At his inauguration ceremony the new president, an ardent edeneologist, promised "...to beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks.." However, by the time the spin doctors and political correctionists took control of his speech-making and letter writing, he was not allowed not use the word "beat" : it was far too violent; furthermore, "pruning" could be misinterpreted, and use against him by his opponents, to claim government cutbacks were about to be made, and any mention of "shares", in a time of a "R" , was an absolute no-no. Sensible people agreed wholeheartedly that it was time for him to turn to the verbotomists and verbotomy for help.

Etymology: Blend of EDEN;a state of perfect happiness or bliss. & NEOLOGIST: a maker of new words.

COMMENTS:

Captures the 'spin doctoring' of the politicians promising to create a new paradise. Excellent word! - silveryaspen, 2009-01-20: 12:51:00
