Highlighting the Absurdities

Making the PC Left live up to their own values — this is how it’s done (h/t PowerLine):

TL/DR – Jim Lyons, a Massachusetts representative, derailed a bill to add “Gender X” to the state drivers license by insisting that all 73 genders (per the current Facebook list of “genders”) be represented individually.  He did this by submitting a separate amendment for each gender, each amendment requiring 10 minutes debate and a roll call vote.

He got 35 amendments filed before the Democrats folded on the “Gender X” idea because they were running out of time to pass some needed legislation before midnight.

Read the whole thing.  It’s epic.

TOTD 2018-8-5: Olympic Joke

I was reminded of the wonderful jokes that razzed a particular country. The punchline always surprised and caused a chuckle. How about we steal and make that country Ratburgia?

This will be an old joke so I will pick an old Olympics. There was a Swede, a Frenchman, and a Ratburgian who wanted to go to the LA Olympics but they had no money. The Swede said, “I’ve got an idea. We will get in as athletes.” The Frenchman went, “Oui, oui.” The Ratburgian squeaked and nodded.

The Swede was the first to approach the gatekeeper. He had found a long pole and with it went up to the gate. He said strongly and clearly, “Sweden, pole vaulting!” They gatekeeper waved him in.

The next one up was the Frenchman. He found a heavy round stone. He goes up to the gatekeeper and says, “France, shot put!” The gatekeeper hesitated for a while but decided to let him in too.

The Swede and Frenchman are waiting for their friend. “Where could he be?”, they thought. Finally they saw him coming. He looked bedraggled and dirty. It looked like he had been out in the country and got caught in some barbed wire and was bleeding. He gets up to the gate and stands straight and says, “Ratburgia, fencing!”

“Hey, it’s free.”

Finding the Right Word

I know there are some writers on this site. Or should I say scribblers lurking? I am Dime and I am not very bright. You might say lacking in luminescence. I digress or in other words I am off track again. Well I am trying to find the right word. But I might be just searching for it. How does one look for the right lingo? You know, pick the proper vocabulary. Or sling the slang at the target audience. Do I want a tetragrammaton or something polysyllabic? Do I go for the Germanic word or the Latin one? Is it best to copy or plagiarize? Do I quote or cite? I am asking for help. Or is it requiring for aid? It’s not that I am ignorant for I don’t know what that word means. If you would be so kind and suggest helpful ways. In other words those truly challenged in cruelty and impatience kick in some light bulbs. If you have an Edison, type.
