“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Local news graphics interns are funny

This is a screen-cap from the local B'ham news this morning. Apparently the new forensic term for a body found with the head and other parts removed is "dismantled".

Heh heh, maybe the underqualified graphics intern was thinking of "dismembered".

"Dismantled" will describe Obama's legacy when Trump is through with it.

Brandon Smith over at Alt-Market.com is not convinced that Trump is America's savior.

“They’re setting it up to where a crash occurs during a Trump presidency, and Trump and conservatives are blamed in the process.”

His take on Trump strikes me as way more plausible than the savior narrative.

From the net:

"Trump's appeal is that he pretends to love Americans. I hope he is sincere. But it's hard not to be suspicious when a plantation owner champions the slaves."

That doesn't even make sense. Plantation owner? Slaves? In what context is that an even remotely apt compatirison?

You are a smart fellow, Ed. Work it out, big guy. Here, let me get you started:


Metaphors are one of the most extensively used literary devices. A metaphor refers to a meaning or identity ascribed to one subject by way of another. In a metaphor, one subject is implied to be another so as to draw a comparison between their similarities and shared traits. The first subject, which is the focus of the sentence, is usually compared to the second subject, which is used to convey a degree of meaning that is used to characterize the first. The purpose of using a metaphor is to take an identity or concept that we understand clearly (second subject) and use it to better understand the lesser known element (the first subject).
