To someone coming unawares upon this word, it might seem to have a connection to that fabulous beast called the griffin or gryphon, the one with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion. Or might it perhaps refer to the vulture with that cognomen or breeds of dog similarly named, both of which derive from an older English spelling of griffin? Alas, no. It’s more prosaic than that.
Readers with knowledge of French will be at an advantage, since the word appears in that language, as griffonnage, a noun that is formed from the verb griffonner, to scribble or scrawl. A griffonage is therefore an illegible scrawl.
Glenn Beck rules - not that I agree with everything he puts out there. He understands that most Americans are complacent and siply do not understand the ramifications of what is going on.
at least he isn't all stuck up Obama's ass like most of the media. It is disgusting how Pro-Obama the press is. (Example: Obama swats fly during an interview. Obama swatting fly is on every news show and local newscast in the country. Obama swatting fly is being made fun of by Colbert...IT WAS A FLY and it was killed by OBAMA - I am shocked that someone didn't pick up the fly remains and sell them on ebay.
To quote Bill Mahr -
"He's the President... Not your BOYFRIEND."
And he is the president of everyone - not just the president of black America. I am all for change that helps our nation and all of its citizens. It seems like most of what Obama is trying to sell will disproportionately benefit certain groups, while overburdening others whom receive little or no benefit with financing the whole agenda
