Jack’s Winning Words 2/21/17
“Question: Why does a milking stool have 3 legs?  Answer: Because the cow has the udder.”  (Dumb Jokes)  The 3-legged stool is often used as a teaching analogy.  The milking stool describes how our government works.  The seat of the stool is the government.  One leg is the legislative branch (Congress).  A 2nd leg is the executive branch (Presidency).  And the 3rd is the judicial branch (Courts).  Balance is important in the USA…and in life, too!    ;-)  Jack

FROM FINANCIAL PLANNER:   I thought you might enjoy this. I thought of you because today you used the metaphor of the three legged stool representing the three branches of government. Retirement Planning also uses the three legged stool to represent retirement income: social security, savings and income.====JACK:  Yes, the old stool can be used in more places than in a barn.   

FROM GUSTIE MARLYS:  Dumb joke—great analogy!  Thanks====JACK: Aren't those the kind of jokes that went over big at GA? 

FROM ST PAUL IN MESA:  I have used the analogy for mind, body, and spirit.   also for the Trinity. ====JACK:  I think that the YMCA uses the slogan, Body-Mind-Spirit.====PAUL:  also reminds me of 4H,   hands, heart, head, and health(?)  i wasn't in it but Margaret was big time. ====JACK:  I guess there are 4-legged milking stools, too.

FROM OUTHOUSE JUDY:  You're correct...dumb joke but still funny.  I've never heard that analogy before but it's interesting.  I imagine a lot of people have quite a different analogy for the government!====JACK:  Our government needs a strong Judiciary leg in order to keep standing.

FROM TARMART REV:  Somehow the news media, both liberal and conservative, have crafted in a fourth, I do believe?!====JACK:  We need the news media to tell us/show us what the stool looks like and if it's in danger of falling over because of a weak leg.

FROM FACEBOOK LIZ:  Yes, the gov't is milking us dry...====JACK:  Do you have some examples?
