    Home-Schooled By Jackals



    This deserves one of DickDay's awards (with an excellent set up by Sleepin').


    I hereby render unto Sleepin the Dayly Bog of the Day Award for this here Dagblog Site, given to all of him from all of me.

    Now I went to public school for my propaganda and then a public university for some truth....hahahahaha

    And my folks taught me little in the way of knowledge.

    Of course I had something to compare it to. hahahahahhaha


    the end.

    Thanks, DDay.

    I know that evolution is a lie because they have yet to show me the missing link between Adam/Eve and the Flintstones. 

    Peaking at hunter?  I don't think so.  Strictly speaking, he was not even civilized at that point.  Back to the drawing board. cheeky


    Just prior to the hunter phase, we had to only obey one law.


    Located in the center of the garden. 

    It's been downhill ever since 

    I suppose the peak guy might be a shepherd since the guy just before him is carrying a knife and so could be the hunter. Also animal husbandry surely preceded agriculture represented by the guy with the rake.  That would put the chart in accord with Genesis.  God did prefer Abel the shepherd to Cain the gardener.

    I don't see any use in having a uniform and arbitrary way of spelling words. We might as well make all clothes alike and cook all dishes alike. Sameness is tiresome; variety is pleasing. I have a correspondent whose letters are always a refreshment to me, there is such a breezy unfettered originality about his orthography. He always spells Kow with a large K. Now that is just as good as to spell it with a small one. It is better. It gives the imagination a broader field, a wider scope. It suggests to the mind a grand, vague, impressive new kind of a cow.

    I guess Sam doesn't care how we spell his last name, either.


    Great catch, Donal. And very funny, too.

     The spelling is correct; if one were to look at the digression of the American working class.   

    Those who promote your Patriotic duty;  are well served by your ignorance.

    "Ignorance alone stands in the way of socialist success…..

    “These are the gentry who are today wrapped up in the American flag, who shout their claim from the housetops that they are the only patriots, and who have their magnifying glasses in hand, ……….. No wonder Sam Johnson declared that "patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.”

    "I am a citizen of the world."

    Great choice of Debs in counter-point to the tea party wizard. In all seriousness, we are witnessing here in Wisconsin the ravages of ignorance in the body politic. No lie is too incredible if it is accompanied with slick messaging and plenty of repetition on the teevee box and the radio. Citizens United is even more damaging to our fragile democracy than I could ever have imagined, and millions of dollars spent cynically and without conscience are capable of turning us all into jackals tearing at each other instead of working for a progressive future. Debs saw it coming and warned us about it. Somewhere, we seem to have developed a deafness and have proceeded to lose our way.

    Here's a little observation from someone who lives in their own bizarre world:

    During the Bush years, Berkeley, Seattle and other cities were filled with signs declaring "Dissent Is Patriotic" or "War IS Terrorism." All of a sudden, years later, I'm finding the script flipped and I've talked with conservative Republicans who bemoan involvement in Afghanistan (a war their guy started) or liberal Democrats who are posting stuff to their profile telling people who don't like paying taxes to "love it or leave it" (I honestly thought that sort of talk was too aggressive for liberals).

    The guy in that image would have been a progressive a few years ago. Dressing in vogue as a 18th century revolutionary usually is not the act of men who are not on the margins of society and opinion. Nevertheless, his sign being spelled wrong now means he can be lampooned by the group that is now the mainstream.

    Honestly, if words can just be flipped around like that and mean something so different overnight, do they really mean anything at all?

    Very thoughtful reply. Thanks for that!

    In response, I direct attention to an essay I wrote some time ago that covers some of the same territory. These "bastard brothers" really aren't that different than you and I, who interestingly count ourselves among the "ninety-nine percent."
