Thar She Blows!

Letter to the Editor. 2 February 24. Gene Scott to the Johnson City Press.

Dear Editor,

The Saturday paper listed The Wager as the current #1 non-fiction bestseller, and I’m enjoying the true story, a frightening account of life at sea in the 1700s.  Ironically, it mirrors current U.S. politics.

Each sailor crewing an English man-of-war had a purpose; if that purpose went unfulfilled, people died. To become a captain of a British warship, one had to serve in each of its capacities, from deck swabber to latrine pumper before climbing the quarterdeck.

Knowing how it all worked together, and obtaining empathy for all positions, British captains and crews transformed the British islands from a cold rock into an Empire where the sun never set.

But our current political situation is nothing short of a bald mutiny by a small minority that rails against our constitution, ignoring what they swore to uphold:

“In order to form a more perfect Union … and promote the general welfare.”

 The British simply tied a cannon ball to a mutineer’s ankle and dropped him off the side.  Better sailing ahead was the motto.

But now we coddle insurrectionists, and our own “representatives” deny election results that have cost millions upon millions to triple verify. All the while turning down federal dollars for school lunches (Marsha Blackburn).

Thar She Blows!
Thar She Blows!

We can save money on cannon balls and cotton rope by substituting brick from the wantonly destroyed public school system – while tax dollars are stolen for parochial schools – and the hemp these jokers must be smoking if they believe their greed and grab for power will get them re-elected for any length of time.

As a whole, the American public is not that stupid.

If it is, then we deserve the treasonous reef already threatening to smash the hull of our beloved nation.

How good is your backstroke?

This Crazy Liberal Dude …

You should read it!

It’s a gruesome yet beautiful, redeeming love story about this crazy homeless liberal dude with long hair, one set of clothes, and dirty sandals who possesses an open heart, and an open mind, and then He opens doors and cares for immigrants (He was an immigrant himself), plus the sick and poor. Lepers.  

His best friends lived hand-to-mouth and stank of fish.

Wealthy “conservative” Pharisees and Sadducees don’t give a damn about the sick and poor who have already been born — they make it as hard on women as they possibly can — and they absolutely HATE the liberal.

They try to “own” Him several times, but His wit makes them turn away in shame.

“If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone.”

They accuse Him of being “woke” after His Sermon on the Mount opened everyone’s eyes with the concept of grace:   “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.”

The story is set in the past and the Pharisees and Sadducees don’t have AR-15s yet to turn Him into Holy Goo (not to be confused with the Holy Ghost), so they have to nail him to a tree.

But He wins in the end!

You’ll have to read it to see how.

It parallels exactly what you see on Fox, but with the lies cut out. And it gives you comfort when you read the END OF THE STORY.

Love wins!

Hate loses!

Goats on one side, sheep on the other.

Read!
