Seems like someone took Groucho’s definition and built a political career around it..... :LOL:

Well, that's pretty weak, I have faith in the system, and the integrity of our most faithful membership.

I think that most members can handle this thread, but it only takes two to get this one locked up. Hopefully it will stay open, but when "politics" comes to mind, I don't really think of peaceful exchanges of words...Who knows though, its just my pessimistic opinion😛 Either way, I'm laughing while its still going😅

Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on a pony,
Stuck a feather in his cap
And called it macaroni.

Just leave your political hats on the shelf and have a laugh, a chuckle, a smile, and some happiness.

In British conversation, the term "Yankee doodle dandy" implied unsophisticated misappropriation of high-class fashion, as though simply sticking a feather in one's cap would make one noble. Peter McNeil, professor of fashion studies, claims that the British were insinuating that the colonists were low-class men lacking masculinity, emphasizing that the American men were womanly.

Didn't know about Daniel Boone apparently. He was no popinjay.

Before I retired and sold most of the land, I farmed approximately 6500 acres and had about double that in pasture. That's a lot of miles of 4 wire barbed wire to maintain. I think I've used just about every kind of post available - metal T posts, Missouri oak, creasote, penta, and thay all worked pretty good. But one day this fella came along and had a truckload of political posts for sale. I was not exactly sold on them, but they were really cheap and I figured I couldn't go wrong. Boy, was I fooled. Couldn't get them to stand up straight. They always wanted to lean one way or the other, depending on which way the wind blew. They wouldn't hold up the fence - acted more like the wires should hold them up. And no matter how straight I laid the fence out, it always seemed like it ended up a bit crooked. I finally pulled them out and tried using them for firewood, but they ended up all smoke and no heat. Finally built a compost pile using them and they're performing wonderfully. They're at their best containing rotted vegetation and doses of manure.

I don't think I'll try investing in political posts again:cool:

Bob, the Brits were probably referring to those that wore the wigs in the early days.....;)

How did we ever form a government? Everyone was out attending the Whig Party.
