While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old southerner, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama, and his being our President.
The old southerner said, "Well, ya’ll know, Obama is just a Post Turtle."
Now not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked, “What's a "Post Turtle?"
The old southerner said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."
The old southerner saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he sure as heck ain't goin' anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there in the first place…”
Well, registered, voting dumb asses put him up there, but not because they're stupid. They had blind faith in the promises he made and hoped for a better tomorrow. Instead we're teetering on the brink of ruin, wondering what sort of future is in store for our children. We need to let our angry grow between now and November...remembering the closed door deals, the shady characters appointed to specific posts, the bulging pocket bureaucrats who sit in the senate and congress, making a career and millions out of what was supposed to be a TERM to look after our welfare. Let the bitterness you feel fester, then VOTE the bastards out in November. It's our only way to send a message that we've had enough. If we continue to let the government rule US in favor of ruling FOR us, then we deserve what we get.
Just my two cents worth.
Thanks to my sister for sharing the joke via my brother who never emails me anything. I'm voting him out in November, too. :)
