This would be a great time in the world
for some man to come along that knew something.
Now that's funny, I don't care who ya are. Republican, Democrat, Independent...Americans just want someone in the White House who knows something. In the days leading up to Election Day, let's not forget to laugh together. It's the shortest distance between people and Heaven knows this nation needs to come together again.
Will Rogers knew that. Born in 1879 in Cherokee Nation, Wikipedia describes Rogers as an "American stage and film actor, vaudeville performer, cowboy, humorist, newspaper columnist, and social commentator." Not bad for a High School drop-out.
His genius was making us laugh at ourselves about topics we Americans took much too seriously in the 1930s and still do today. Topics like politics and government. Rogers' quips are as accurate today as they were back then, proving that nothing much ever changes.
Remember, write to your Congressman.
Even if he can’t read, write to him.
Will didn't try to be funny, per se. He just observed America and then reflected ourselves back at us. As he liked to say, "All I know is just what I read in the papers."
For you young whippersnappers, that's several large sheets of printed paper, folded together, that crackles authoritatively when you shake it over your morning coffee. Try that with a Kindle!
Why don’t they pass a Constitutional Amendment
prohibiting anybody from learning anything?
If it works as good as Prohibition did,
in five years we will have the smartest people on earth.
Or just teach Common Core via Zoom. That'll make kids thirst for knowledge...if they aren't arrested for trying to learn like Maverick Stow.
I won't lie to ya. Last night was one of my lowest moments in recent memory. I was deeply discouraged.
A lot of it was my own silly fault. I shoulda' listened to Michael. When we found out Narcissism Meets Normalcy was ending, Michael knew me better than I know myself. He knew I'd hit the new challenge head on. "Take some time to relax," Michael told me. "Consider it a vacation."
