As Time Goes By

What if Moveon.org had existed 65 years ago? Come on, it's a weekend. (Hat tip: Tigerhawk) Nothing follows.

A man walked into a bank in New York City one day and asked for the loan
officer.
He told the loan officer that he was going to Philippines on business for two
weeks and
needed to borrow $5,000. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some
form
of security for the loan.
Then the man handed over the keys to a new Ferrari parked on the street in front
of the
bank. He produced the title and everything checked out The loan officer agreed
to accept
the car as collateral for the loan.The bank's president and its officers all
enjoyed a good
laugh at the guy for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000
loan.
An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground
garage and
parked it there.Two weeks later, the guy returned, repaid the $5,000 and the
interest,
which came to $15.41.
The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had and this transaction
has worked
out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked
you out and
found that you are a multi millionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother
to borrow
"$5,000?.
The millionaire replied: "Where else in New York City can I park my car for
$15.41 and
expect it to be there when I return"

When I was a kid I noticed a funny thing would happen when I tapped my foot on mud. Water would pull to the surface and pool.

My favorite sermon this year does something similar. The pastor wants to show that everyone has idols. Idols are things that people want too much. So the pastor in his way just slowly tap tap taps on your forhead until your idol surfaces in your mind and you can see it for what it is. Anyhow here is the mp3 audio

I think this General Lies and Power ad should be run by someone in the NYT. I think it would be amazingly effective.

It would illustrate the utter childishness of the language of the left.

Essentially: In a very different war, in a very different time, with vastly different personalities involved...one could have argued all the same points.
