When you happen along a turtle balanced atop on a fence post just sitting there looking stupid, that is a post turtle.
The original story went something like” When you find a turtle balanced on a fence post, you know he didn’t get up there by himself, he dam sure doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, obviously he’s been elevated beyond his ability to function, as you walk away you can’t help but wonder what kind of dumb ass idiot put him up there to begin with.”
Most of the time this story is used to degrade some type elected official, but lately were starting to see a rash of them. I truly do not understand the world those city folks think they want.
A year ago, most of them could not find any paper to use on the toilet. Did anyone think the toilet paper people had quit making paper. The only reason that market could get so far out of balance was the stupid news people told everyone to run out and buy the toilet paper while you still had a chance. I understand the news is full of shit but why did the American people fall for that joke so easy.
Another thing, why was everyone worried about that end of the food chain. I think if you lived in a big city, you should understand if the water goes off in your town you have at the minimum 2 days to live and if you really know how to ration what water you have you dam sure will not be flushing the toilet.
I do not want to go on a long rant this week but I assure you, I remember the old men talking about the things that happened in Germany leading up to the second war. The problem is I am an old man sweeping off the steps of a store that is long since past its prime. The kids these days, are spending so much time with their faces in their phone. They will never see the train coming down the tracks they are walking on. I just asking, if it took both Soviet Union and the United States to save the Jews in Germany. Who is going to step up and save the American people.
I know it is easy to laugh at the turtle and the people who put him there and if you do not like the turtle might I suggest having a cup of coffee with the folks you normally would not invite over. You might find a nice old man with a worn-out broom.
The Old Man
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig tight and bull-strong.
Keeps skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
