Spin Me A Tale

Call me Ishmael. —Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

 It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. —Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice,  Lolita

light of my life, fire of my loins. —Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

You don’t know about me without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain’t no matter. —Mark Twain, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Somewhere in la Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember, a gentleman lived not long ago, one of those who has a lance and ancient shield on a shelf and keeps a skinny nag and a greyhound for racing. —Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote

I don’t quite know how Rand Paul’s  Political tale began but given that he is a LiberTURDIAN I can say it was “I am a sick man . . . I am a spiteful man. —Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Notes from Underground” and not be too far off the mark.

It would be folly to arbitrarily to castigate those who we do not align with politically without showing the same skepticism to those we support; A support that often is based on nothing more than partisanship—the last time I listened to the start of a tale it went, “Hope and Change” well we all know how that fairytale unfolded.

    Going to go see “Woman in Gold” in about half hour.
    wiki –
    “The film is based on the true story of the late Maria Altmann, an elderly Jewish refugee, living in Los Angeles who, together with her young lawyer, E. Randol Schoenberg, fought the government of Austria for almost a decade to reclaim Gustav Klimt’s iconic painting of her aunt, Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I, which was confiscated from her relatives by the Nazis in Vienna just prior to World War II. Altmann took her legal battle all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States, which ruled in her favor.”

    I saw this Klimit painting in Vienna –

    After I watched this video, I said to myself, “I could vote for The Donald.” Because what Mr. Trump said is spot-on. America is in big trouble. And when it comes to repairing America, politicians of either party are not going to get it done. We need to think outside of the box, with a big helping of common sense and love of our country. Donald Trump is saying it and I believe he is sincere. Even if he does not run, would it be so bad for America if Mr. Trump inspired someone else to embrace such values, to rebuild America? http://video.foxnews.com/v/4166213074001/presidential-contenders-donald-trump/?#sp=show-clips
