Political Humour Alberta style
« on: March 14, 2013, 07:53:56 AM »
Does this adequately describe Red Alli?


Post turtles
 
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Politicians and their role as our leaders.
 
The old rancher said, "Well, you know, most Politicians are 'Post Turtles'.''

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.
 
The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle."
 
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb arse put him up there to begin with."
 
Best explanation I've heard yet.

Thats kind of funny.

However in reality I think it is our political system that is most flawed.

What is a successful politician?  In our system it is one that gets elected at least once and the more often the more successful they are.  They are salesmen who sell themselves.

If our elected representatives really represented the people who elected them and were accountable to them, things would be much better.

However when a politician is loyal to their party and leader and most concerned with getting re-elected they don't do the best job for those who elected them.

Ooooooh you boys are playing with fire bringing politics to the forum LOL!

This is one topic I will do my darndest to avoid getting in to. You think I spun out over poachers, don't even get me started on my deep seated hatred for politicians!!! Twitch twitch lol

No humour in politics. Maybe that crazy kinda laughter you get when you're about to lose it lol.

Yup, when I read the title I thought there are three words that don't belong in the same sentence ;) It was a good one though! Now if only Albertans were able to knock that turtle off the fence post...
