    If you could create a new word, what would it be? What would it mean?

    I heard “impeachy-keen,” recently. Think it means if you’re keen on the impeachment of Trump.

    Not useful. After Trump is gone, what do you do with it?

    "Wegs", as in "Don't go all wegs on me". I don't know what it means but I like it.

    On this forum, your name has become synonymous with “Republican propaganda spewer.” (not by me lol)

    Let’s use it in a sentence:

    “You sound like a Seattle.”

    What’s that?

    “Someone who supports the Republican Party media! And thought Reagan was great!”

    But...I don’t support the Republican Party media...I’m not even a Republican.

    “Shut up! You’re a Seattle!”

    Oh

    You forgot Republican talking points, you guys, and "anti-socials" but I think you've got the idea. Are you sure you aren't Iceaura? Way to Wegs.

    I've run across a word generator, that comes up with bizarre combinations, and you can attach your own definitions at whim.

    I really like ''glomtom.'' This isn't a ''real'' word (yet) but I think it would catch on. It could be defined as someone who is always gloomy. Like a debbie downer.

    ''You always spoil everything, don't be such a glomtom.''

    I think there are a couple of people on here who are being a glomtom and ironically enough they are the same people who also seem to use a random word generator.
