Rest Stop Ahead: Too Much Information
Here’s some truth in advertising although ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ works better for me.
Patriotic Freedoms of Expression
Freedom of speech and expression indeed! Both of these are oh-so true. We can feel relief now that ‘the old guard’ is out of office and we look ahead to the future. It is time to re-create what made America great.
I had to re-read and think about the second one for awhile and it begins to make sense the longer you think about it. If the freedoms only apply to some of the people, it is not really freedom but privilege.
It reminds of another tongue-in-cheek bumper stick that I saw that said “In Democracy, Your Vote Counts. In Feudalism, Your Count Votes.”
I love humorous bumper stickers. They can make traveling more enjoyable. It can be fun to read the automobile graffiti and glean some wisdom and humor along the way. One of my favorites was on the bumper of a car whose driver clearly likes Vikings. The bumper sticker read “It takes a Village to Raise a Child, But it Takes a Viking To Raze a Village.” Clever, eh?
From the movie “Highlander” and the series, ‘there can be only one’ was the spoken incantation when the victor slays his opponent. But in the lowlands, they are a little more relaxed. More cordial. There can be several.
And the survey Says…
Not every survey has meaning. Heck, -I have seen surveys that ask if you like taking surveys and surveys on how to improve future surveys. In fact, some telemarketers are getting around the stipulation of the ‘Do Not Call List’ by beginning their unsolicited phone inquiry with a survey. This is apparently exempt from the anti-telemarketer legislation. Imagine that. Poll-takers are not restricted from calling you at home to ask if you want to take a survey about their site/product, and then while you’re on the line they can try to sell something to you.
