Jack’s Winning Words 7/14/15
“I tell you folks, all politics is applesauce.” (Will Rogers) It’s over a year until “the election,” and I’ve already had my fill of applesauce. Back in the old days, “applesauce” meant nonsense or foolishness. Some current euphemisms: big brother…born-again…politically correct…the one percent…ethnic minority. They are code words for saying what we mean, without saying it. Will R. also said, “I never met a man I didn’t like.” Our world needs more like him. ;-) Jack
FROM HY YO SILVER: Scalia used a similar phrase recently.====JACK: It's dangerous to use a work such as, ALL. "A lot of" might be a better choice of words.
FROM EDUCATOR PAUL: I happen to like our current pope. In a Q and A with reporters, this is what he had to say about his lack of comments regarding the middle class. "A: Thank you so much. It's a good correction, thanks. You are right. It's an error of mine not to think about this. I will make a comment but not to justify myself. You're right. I have to think a bit." How unusual… a leader who Needs to think a little bit before opening their mouth.====JACK: A lot of folks pontificate who aren't Popes. Pope Francis is a breath of fresh air among some of the stink of this world.
FROM TARMART REV: I can remember him back in the early fifties with his rope and yarns on TV-- went through his museum in Claremore, Oklahoma while being of grade school age. ====JACK: I'll bet if you did rope tricks while waiting at Target and Walmart, you'd get more people stopping by to talk. Google has a variety of sites where you can learn how to twirl the rope..
FROM GOOD DEBT JON: Not only that, but “bitter” applesauce….====JACK: Somebody has to do the job, or we lose our democracy.====JON: I think the problem is they (PACs) buy both sides and there is no effective election…====JACK: I'd like to think that my vote isn't for sale. "My country, right or wrong...It's still me country."
