Thread: Running in America

  1. #11
    Two quotes occur to me, for Silver Moon's comment on money there was Bob Dylan said 'Money doesn't talk, it swears', for Ned's comment on democracy Winston Churchill 'Democracy is the worst form of government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time'

    None of it is perfect, but as long as some of us keep trying there is always the little bird, hope, to be found at the bottom of Pandora's box.

    My friends and I went to vote this morning. Like so many before I've never voted mid-term. What a great feeling to circle my ballot!

    But I'm angry. The neighbor whom I've run many errands for is on an oxegan tank. I've taken her to many doctor appointments aside from running errands. I offered to take her to vote. She never returned my call. She preferes to watch the old 60' sitcom shows rather than the news. I am now going to let her continue to live under a rock. No more driving for "Miss Lazy".

    Thanks for listening to my vent....

    Olly, I love collecting quotes. Never heard of this one from Bob Dylan before. Simply brilliant. And Churchill's wit is always spot on.

    Let's hope the little bird flyyyyys tonight

    It's from 'It's alright ma' (I'm only bleeding), one of my favourite lyrics. It comes near the end, but the whole thing is worth a read through, I think I learned all the lyrics on that album by heart when it first came out, no internet then, taking the needle off the record and putting it back a bit time after time until you got it

    Thank you, Olly. I, too, listened to this during our vinyl days. I can't recite the song (my poor memory) but it's always been with me.

    Sadly and frightengly so, we now hear these words every night.

    What an idiot. People who want to run things should be automatically disqualified for consideration.

    TL - What an idiot. People who want to run things should be automatically disqualified for consideration.
    What can you do when you have a Sociopath at the helm who hob nobs with Dictators, aspiring to be one?

    I can see him now hanging out with his buds Putin, Kim Jong-un and the Crown Prince. They couple up to play chess. Trump accidentally knocks the Pawn off the board...and stares at himself on the floor.

    BTW - Did you know that Trump is not Donald's real last name? His surname is Drumph.

    We writers like to mess around with words, right? Something told me that if the "r" is dropped "Dumph" would be a word. Whadaya know? It is. But I never expected this!

    TL - What an idiot
    You were being quite polite, sir!

    People have more reasons for 'loving war' than simply being a sociopath, it leads to innovation, their economy is geared up for it. I believe King John had the same sort of problem with the Barons when he wanted to stop fighting France, their investment was in arms and their income in booty. Money doesn't talk, it swears.
