Post Turtle, ..update!

“Post Turtle” ..is an (old cliché) that has been used in the (political arenas) of many countries around the world, ..to include the U.S. and Canada, based on an old joke.

The Fable in Question…

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.

Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president which prompted the old rancher to inject;

‘Well, ya know, ..Obama is a ‘Post Turtle”.

Not being familiar with the term, the young doctor asked the ‘ol rancher;

Okay, ..so what’s a ‘post turtle’?

To which the ‘ol rancher promptly replied;

‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.

..and since the ‘ol rancher saw a puzzled look envelope the young doctor’s face, ..he continued to elaborate;

“You know that he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just can’t help but wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.” (Courtesy of my cousin Willy’s lifelong friend, Kenny).

Now then that, (hopefully,) you’ve all enjoyed an adequate chuckle?

Moving on to a serious note; America, of course would not be America, without our Constitution and our Bill of Rights, not necessarily the most important, (at least in my personal opinion) ..albeit it is the first, ..our inalienable right to free speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion.

The First Amendment, which again (in my personal opinion) has only remained intact for the 236 years of our existence because our founding fathers possessed enough intellect,  a.k.a. (common sense) to understand that without the right to keep and bear arms, to protect ourselves and the nation against (all enemies,) “foreign and domestic,” by providing the (Second Amendment,) ..the First Amendment probably would have been thrown under the bus a millennium ago?

Albeit, since that’s a (what if) ..that no one, (at least no one that I know of) ..has the answer to, ..we’ll leave that one in the archives where it belongs.

Although I realize that I’m not the only American that can count up to 236 without removing his shoes or alluding to a calculator, ..that’s not my point, ..or my concern, ..my point , ..and my concern are that if Barack Obama is allowed another four years in the White House, it is my fear that the last 236 years of freedom in America will come to an end via Barack Obama’s promise, ..and/or, ..(threat) ..of change.

 

 

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
