Shooting the Tiger


“Some regard private enterprise as if it were a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look upon it as a cow that they can milk. Only a handful see it for what it really is - the strong horse that pulls the whole cart.” – Sir Winston Churchill

The horse has been corralled and gelded. The cow milked dry. All that remains to be done is shoot the tiger. The American electorate has it in their sites, and appears eager to fire.

Cheers,

Charlie

Maybe the horse, cow and tiger were eaten by the Panther!?

Hang on there, Charlie. Don't give up on us just yet.

My Dear Denise,

We are not giving up, merely warning. One need merely look across the Atlantic to the impotent sinking socialist cesspit of Britain to see what your future holds should you continue on your present course. A course correction is rather in order!

My Dear Anonymous,

Please clarify your riddle by answering the following. Are you:

__ a socialist?
__ an anarchist?
__ a communist?
__ an "independent" (i.e. irrelevant)
__ all of the above (i.e. New Democrat?)

Cheers,

Charlie

I'm a disgruntled Republican with a sick sense of humor, embarrassed by my own party/country. As we all should be.

Hockey Moms/Joe Sixpack? Are you kidding me!?
