  •  another from the sister-in-law (15+ / 0-)

    Once upon a time, there was a kingdom that was being ravaged, and the only way to stop the damage was for someone to go and seize the sacred stone.  But to get there one had to go across an open field, and when you did the guardian of the stone would strike, his giant yellow hand coming down and crushing whoever dared to venture forward.  If the stone were seized, the guardian would die and the kingdom would be saved.

    The king promised the hand (and the rest of her body) to whomever could seize the stone.  Many brave knights came forth, many tried and died, as the giant yellow hand came down.

    Finally a young page said "I can do it my King."   Everyone else laughed, but the king being desperate, allowed him try.

    And as he did, the hand of the guardian once again came down as it always had - fingers curled downward, with the intent of crushing the skull of the intruder.

    But the page was short, the palm did not quite reach him, and before the guardian could push down its palm to crush him, the page calmly strolled between the fingers, seized the sacred stone, and saved the kingdom

    The moral of this story is plain -  let your pages do the walking through the yellow fingers.

    do we still have a Republic and a Constitution if our elected officials will not stand up for them on our behalf?
