A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save America in 2024!


 The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on  from generation to generation, says that:
“When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, best strategy is to dismount.”

In government, and other equally dysfunctional organizations, more advanced strategies are usually taken, such as;

1. Buying a stronger whip.
2. Changing  riders.
3. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
4.  Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride dead horses.
5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be  included.
6. Reclassifying the dead horse as  living-impaired.
7. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead  horse.
8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase  speed.
9. Providing additional funding and/or training to  increase the dead horse’s performance.
10. Doing a productivity  study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse’s performance.
11. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to  be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially  more to the bottom line than do some other horses.
12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
And of course….
13. Promoting the dead  horse to a supervisory position. And the best action to stop oil production.

14. Making dead horses an endangered species.

Thanks Allan, i’ll share the wisdom.

    • Judy, I really appreciate your comments. I get a lot of satisfaction with my writing. I am blessed at 81 to have my health and mind. God gave me the the chance to see most of the free world and every kind of society. Working in 32 countries and 49 states provided a lot to share, just with my 40 children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Thanks for your kind words. C Brewer
