A Scot's Dream

Word spread around town like wildfire.

Angus, the most stoic and dour of Scots was in the pub and crying.

Iain, a fine, brave lad stepped forward and volunteered to question Angus, a notable brawler.  A crowd gathered outside the door.

"Angus, why are you tearring up?  Do you have sometin in yourrr eye?"  asked Iain.

"Nay, laddie.  Tis worrse than that.  Ya know me two Clydesdales, Billy and Ben?" said Angus.

"Aye, Angus.  They be the two bonniest horses in the county."

"Well, laddie.  They up and died on me."  said Angus.

A collective gasp arose from the crowd assembled outside.

"NO!"  exclaimed Iain.  "Twatt a terrrrible shame."

"Tis worrrse than you know."  said Angus.  "Not only werrre they the two finest horses in the county, but I was training them not to eat 'n I'd a had em down to nothing in another week."


You think you heard the punchline but did not.

Substitute US economy for Clydesdale and Socialist for Scot.

Now you are crying too.


  1. Liberalism - for politician - is a desire for absolute power and control.
    Liberalism for the voter or citizen - is either a deep character flaw or a mental illness - and usually both.
    Unfortunately, there is no cure as we are learning. They must be defeated and marginalized into irrelevance - or, if the game is rigged - exterminated.
    Yeah, you heard me. It's normal people or them. Trying to get along with them is the sure road to destruction.
    You know I am right. It is time to face facts. Fight and live free - or die a slave.

    1. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.

      David Greenfield recently wrote: "Thomas Jefferson, the abiding figurehead of the Democratic Party, who famously wrote, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants"...But the Democratic Party is no longer the party of Thomas Jefferson. It's the party of King George III."

      The liberals treat the political machine as a wealth extraction device much like strip mining apparatus. The only function of the economy is to puke tribute to the victors. The knee is on the throat. They appear to either have no concept, or concern that the economy is bouyed by businesses run by independent actors. Those actors can decide to Go Galt and tank the job market.

      At some level they decided that would be OK. Perhaps because Warren Buffet does not have any portfolio exposure to that level of company.

      It is certainly going to be interesting. Watch your 6.
