ON MY SOAPBOX…The horse is dead


WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

The majority of my working career has been in Middle Management positions with three companies. If nothing else, I have learned that our Native Americans were very smart.

The wisdom of the Indians, passed on from generation to generation, states that,

“When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.”

However, sometimes in modern days, a whole range of far more advanced strategies are often used, such as:

 

Buying a stronger whip.

Changing riders.

Appointing a committee to study the horse.

Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride dead horses.

Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.

Reclassifying the dead horse as “living impaired.”

Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.

Harnessing several dead horses together to increase the speed.

Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the performance of the dead horse.

Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse’s performance.

Declaring that: as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.

Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.

Promoting the dead horse.

 

All these strategies have been tried by Upper Management in the companies for which I worked. What a ride! Trust me on this, when Upper Management bets on dead horses to Win, Place or Show….use your own judgement. You may be very wise to go with the wisdom of the Indian and simply……

Dismount.

 

Drugs that worked….

 


After 6 burglaries, 3 car thefts, multiple illegal trespasses, an ongoing cocaine and alcohol addiction, committing 2 violent home invasions, 3 armed robberies, dealing Fentanyl and Meth, passing counterfeit money, beating 4 victims senseless and being arrested 23 times since 1998, George Floyd Overdosed on his own drugs and hasn’t committed a crime in over nine months now!

BUT IT DID NET HIS FAMILY $27 MILLION!

.

Three Contractors…

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Kentucky, and the third is from New Orleans. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The New Orleans contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil “Well,” he says, “I figure the job will run about $9,000. That’s $4,000 for materials, $4,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me.”

The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $7,000. That’s $3,000 for materials, $3,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me.”

The Chicago contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, “$27,000.”

The official, incredulous, says, “You didn’t even measure like the other guys. How did you come up with such a high figure? “

“The Chicago contractor whispers back, “$10,000 for me, $10,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Kentucky to fix the fence.”

“Done!” replies the government official.

And that, my friends, is how the Government Stimulus plan works.

Remember when … Four boxes kept us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

Now, our Soapbox is censored, our Ballot box is rigged, the Jury box is threatened, and they are trying to take away our cartridge box.

“I love my country; it’s the government I’m afraid of!”

Life from the seat of a tractor….

“I repeat this post occasionally, because….. I could not have said it better myself.”

-Sheila Tolley-

 

An  old Farmer’s Words of Wisdom we could all live  by.

Image result for black and white pic of an old farmer on a tractor

Your  fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and  bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a  distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the  stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a  John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears  are whispered…. not yelled.

Meanness don’t just  happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes  up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don’t take a very big  person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel  word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The  best sermons are lived, not preached.

Don’t judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best  answer.

Live a good and honorable life, then when  you get older and think back, you’ll enjoy it a second  time.

Don’t interfere with somethin’ that ain’t  bothering you none.

Timin’ has a lot to do with  the outcome of a rain dance.

If you find yourself  in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have  to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin’.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good  judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from  bad judgment.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a  whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

If you  get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try  orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.

Don’t pick  a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll  just kill  you.

This is a favorite among Democrat politicians.  Deception is their stock-in-trade. 

The deceptive politicians travel/act in herds for protection.  I didn’t include the lions killing a weak/old/young Impala, it is too graphic.  The MSM/Democrats for some reason singled Andrew Cuomo out for replacement.  All of the Major Democrats hide behind the larger herd.

TIE:  Is that all about how to stay safe, NVC ?

One thing is,  be sure that your camouflage is effective.

The Cicadas have a plan worked out.  Out of sight, out of mind.  From my experiences Congress should meet when the Cicadas emerge.  Anything they do needs 17 years of trials or R & D.  All drugs and farm chemicals should be tested on their families.

This is a trip in the Way-Back-Machine, before Jena Psaki became retarded.  If she knew this much about Biden’s plan she wouldn’t circle around as much.

Maxine Waters could drown-out a million Cicadas, but they are more intelligent.
