Quote of the day:
The world is governed more by appearances than realities, so that it is fully as necessary to seem to know something as to know it. - Daniel Webster
I couldn't ask for a better quote of the day after last night's Graeco-Roman festival. Where were the gladiators?
I have been away from the blog for several days, longer than I realized. My focus has been on the DNC and RNC conventions.
I did not hear much in the way of real programs, just left vs right, man vs. woman, black vs. white, free market vs socialism, more taxes vs. less taxes, more spending vs. less spending and what it used to be like in the 1950s which gave me kind of a warm fuzzy
Obama is not just a great orator, but a mass hypnotist. His voice carries with it a kind of "fragrance" that overpowers your ear, and resonates somewhere in the limbic system. Whatever it is about his voice and resonance we should study it carefully and bottle it, to be re-broadcast at some time in the future when all is about to be lost. I am concerned that somewhere in all that oratory he left us with a post-hypnotic suggestion, which will be unleashed at some unknown time in the future. (perhaps at the polling places in November). So wear your earplugs and eye blinders when you go to the polls.
I had to get that off my chest. Tomorrow I will be rational again.
