Odd. Barry doesn't "look" French.


“The right to freedom being the gift of God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave.” – Samuel Adams

“A man in debt is so far a slave.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

NATIONAL DEBT: $15.17 trillion & rising
UNFUNDED OBLIGATIONS: $61.6 trillion & rising
COST OF OBAMACARE: $20 trillion (low-ball number)
(That's right--I assert that OBAMACARE is an unfunded obligation)
DEBT PER CAPITA: $48,500 + ($197,000 + $64,000) = $309,500 & rising
DEBT PER TAXPAYER: $134,500 + ($528,000 + $177,000) = $839,500 & rising
UNITED STATES GDP: $14.58 trillion

“Common sense will tell us, that the power which hath endeavored to subdue us, is of all others, the most improper to defend us. Conquest may be effected under the pretence of friendship; and ourselves, after a long and brave resistance, be at last cheated into slavery.” – Thomas Paine, Common Sense

“It stands to reason that where there’s sacrifice, there’s someone collecting sacrificial offerings. Where there’s service, there’s someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice, speaks of slaves and masters. And intends to be the master.” – Ayn Rand (while IMO she's overrated, all of her free-market maxims are correct)



I didn't even think about my tangent detracting from your work.

I sincerely apologize.

To get back on topic:

I just saw the "rhetorical blindfold" as an allegory for the TOTUS. Wicked sharp.

Dr. Bob:

Ok, it's a rhetorical blindfold made from his own telepromptered words.

Blinded from reality by his own words.

"just words..."

John Cox:

Though some your "distractions" tend to leave me in the dust, gasping for air as if I'd been bludgeoned with an OED, I enjoy your participation.

Thanks for the kind word. I like to that my work inspires The Introspective.
