The Patriot (Samual Johnson, ca. 1777)

"A patriot is he whose publick (sic) conduct is regulated by one single motive, the love of his country; who, as an agent in parliament, has, for himself, neither hope nor fear, neither kindness nor resentment, but refers every thing to the common interest."
Johnson: The Patriot

We all know the boss. Well if you don't Damn? where the hell you been?
It's cool, it cool, don't get cross, I'm jus' an ol' white man.
Step and Fetchit, yo, here i is.

These are nice on a July evening.

"A man sometimes starts up a patriot, only by disseminating discontent, and propagating reports of secret influence, of dangerous counsels, of violated rights, and encroaching usurpation. This practice is no certain note of patriotism. To instigate the populace with rage beyond the provocation, is to suspend publick (sic) happiness, if not to destroy it. He is no lover of his country, that unnecessarily disturbs its peace. Few errours (sic) and few faults of government, can justify an appeal to the rabble; who ought not to judge of what they cannot understand, and whose opinions are not propagated by reason, but caught by contagion."
Johnson: The Patriot

Joe F*&%$#G McCarthy!~ Damn Nation.

Hey jessss, Listen to Glen-i-can-cry-on-cue-whatsit. (with Vick's vaporub (hey is that Mick Vick's vaporub???)) That should bring it up to date. or not.

Ronnie-huh?-Reagan, Oh??? say, there you go again, I studied at the foot of this man.
(isn't that RIGHT Nancy?)
author's note: (by the way they were made of clay (McCarthy's feet not Ronniewhatever))
There were a lot of young people looking at law and government service and this guy's purpose was to ruin bright young lives. (forever) Take note. (it worked)
Or NOT!!!
There are folks out there that think Joe was right. (definitely not left)
Hey me I'm an Old white guy, the ones y'all love to joke about.

  1. Rain is forcast for the big day but the Shu is looking good.

  2. Drivin' that stretch ride.
    Boy howdey.

  3. Sooooo, we're down to private messages here on the absurd? What does the forecast have to do with scoundrels? Crying scoundrels at that. BTW, a scoundrel by any other name is...Beck.

  4. No one seems to know the difference between a patriot and a nationalist anymore. Nationalists are shitting on the streets that the patriots are busy trying to keep clean while their partners feed their families with a food stamp subsidy.
