The Syria Situation: What would you say?


If I was a fisherman I would say our government is back trolling into 4 foot waves.

If I was a teacher I would write in the comments section of the report card, government inconsistent, does not do homework or class assignments and does not play well with others.

If I was a lumberjack I might state that the government can’t see the forest for the trees.

If I was in customer service I would call in sick on the day of the government’s newest product roll out.

If I was an engineer I would say the government’s marketing department promised more than we could ever deliver.

If I was Sir Walter Scott I would say , “ Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive.

If I was a historian I might list Afghanistan, Beirut, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, and then first ask if we ever learn from history and secondly ask did any of these turn out well?

If I was a cab driver I might ask if the government ever looks in the rear view mirror.

If I was a mechanic listening to the news today I might mention that even with a good double clutch the gears are going to grind badly if we shift this whole thing into reverse.

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
