That's exactly the kind of language the Debt Money Monopoly uses to marginalise resistance to their oligarchy.





Sorry about that. Jes' gettin' my TD freak on there for a moment.



Won't happen again.




Promise.

recalcitrant organic compounds

Recalcitrant compounds, either organic or synthetic that are resistant to being broken down through chemical processes. And therefore are treated using microbes to help with the process of degrading the recalcitrant compounds into smaller, more manageable compounds.

Pity today's American teachers who have to deal with so many recalcitrant students.

And if a teacher tries to discipline such a student, it is the teacher who is blamed!

No wonder many talented and conscientious people are no longer going into education.

They refuse to put up with such nonsense.

When it comes to excepting suggestion's, Fredric-Frank Myers, the artist: "He was and still is one of the most recalcitrant individuals I have ever met." This was a statement by the chair of the psychological department during my years in undergraduate school, after I changed my major from psychology to fine arts. He followed up by adding not so many year's ago; "...damn it I'm really glad he was and still is."

And yes, being recalcitrant should not always be considered a bad thing, should it? At some point in a persons life they will know what they want and what direction they MUST travel, regardless of the objections of those pseudo-friend's/relative's. Following ones dreams is a good thing but only after much consideration of the "cost" and ones abilities.

Yes! Your post reminds me of a comic. In the comic, it shows that years ago when a student got poor marks the parents would chew out their kid, but nowadays when a student gets poor marks the parents chew out the teacher.

Recalcitrant this adjective can be no control or not obedient, for example: he is a recalcitrant prisoner. Most of the time, Hitler was a recalcitrant leader.
