Liberals everywhere should fear David Burge like they should fear a case of dysentery.
Laaawyer, Muslim, vegetarian, why would anyone want to emulate him?
Er, Gandhi, that is.
Sometimes I speak quicker than I think, shrug, Jeder macht eine kleine Dummheit.
Thanks for this! I follow him, but this one got by me.
P.S. That man is a genius. Wacky, but a genius. He can hit so many nails on the head with one quip, it's amazing.
Gandhi was many things, including crazy as a jay bird in heat, but he was a Hindu, not a Muslim.
Did anyone twitter back the words, "Does, too!"
Fat Man: huge mistake on my part. I always thought he was Hindu but a too quick read of him on Wiki somehow led me to think he was Muslim.
"He became a leader of Muslims protesting the declining status of the Caliphate." and other text and it was just plain sloppy of me.
And, I was trying to be clever. Bit me in the ass that did!
He helped give us the grift that keeps on grifting:
Pakistan. Land of the Pure.
I don't think David Burge has ever been to Pakistan. I know I sure haven't. I wonder where he got such a huge pipe, he must have a hella tobacco jones.
While I'm all wondering and everything, I wonder why he would choose a foreign political figure, who is BTW dead, to illustrate his notion that sewing anything on anything will make anyone anything.
And while we are on the topic of Yellow Submarine, the hands across the water part, who would staff our motels and convenience stores and technical support help lines if not the folks that probably don't even own brown shirts and if they did they would never consider sewing anything onto them anyway? I know there was a custom in Germany back in the '30s where people sewed different color triangles on their shirts so's other folks'd be able, spot them in a crowd and perhaps engage in social bonding but I don't think that went as far as India. And besides, there are some countries in the world that don't even have shirts.
It's actually quite a deep statement, chasmatic. Google Ghandi and Nazis and you'll be amazed what comes up in the overlapping circles.
Jewel, thanks for the suggestion. I googled and yes, was surprised at the complex dynamics expressed.
More to what Burge said than meets the eye, so to speak, and deserves better than clever quips.
Kinda hurts my head, thinking so much.
"I know there was a custom in Germany back in the '30s where people sewed different color triangles on their shirts so's other folks'd be able, spot them in a crowd and perhaps engage in social bonding"
You have a sick and twisted sense of humor, and I choked on my coffee.
...but if you sincerely think that the Brownshirt mentality is not to be found in many parts of the world, then you are in for some eye-opening discoveries.
