This news bulletin just in....
Progress on Free Republic’s FReepathon came to an abrupt standstill earlier this evening...
Insiders report it has something to do with avoiding what is referred to as the “double naughts”...
More later, as further details emerge...

The stand off made me LOL and then I went to find a “thread killer” graphic.

By the time I found one I liked, I refreshed the page and it had hit.

I was going to post the graphic in post #499.

Next time.

Since it happens “now and then”, saving it’s a good idea.

Well, that was a lot of fun. I think I can go to bed now, and let you children keep playing. I haven't laughed like this in a while. Thanks for the good times, my friends. Good night, and God bless.

The following excerpted discussion about political parties is from a book published 100 years ago.


A HOOSIER CHRONICLE
by
MEREDITH NICHOLSON

BOSTON AND NEW YORK
HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY
The Riverside Press Cambridge

Published March 1912

Excerpt from

CHAPTER VI
HOME LIFE OF HOOSIER STATESMEN

. . .

"Parties are necessary to democratic government. I don't believe merely in my own party; I want the opposition to be strong enough to make a fight. The people are better satisfied if there's a contest for the offices. I'm not sorry when we lose occasionally; defeat disciplines and strengthens a party.

I have made a point in our little local affairs of not fighting independents when they break with us for any reason.

Believing as I do that parties are essential, and that schismatic movements are futile, I make a point of not attacking them. Their failures strengthen the party—and incidentally kill the men who have kicked out of the traces. You never have to bother with them a second time."

"But they help clear the air—they serve a purpose?" suggested Harwood.

He had acquired a taste for the "Nation" and the New York "Evening Post" at college, and Bassett's frank statement of his political opinions struck Dan as mediæval.

He was, however, instinctively a reporter, and he refrained from interposing himself further than was necessary to stimulate the talk of the man before him.

"You are quite right, Mr. Harwood. They serve an excellent purpose. They provide an outlet; they serve as a safety valve. Now and then they will win a fight, and that's a good thing too, for they will prove, on experiment, that they are just as human and weak in practical application of their ideas as the rest of us.

I'd even go as far as to say that in certain circumstances I'd let them win. They help drive home my idea that the old parties, like old, established business houses, have got to maintain a standard or they will lose the business to which they are rightfully entitled.

When you see your customers passing your front door to try a new shop farther up the street, you want to sit down and consider what's the matter, and devise means of regaining your lost ground. It doesn't pay merely to ridicule the new man or cry that his goods are inferior. Yours have got to be superior—or"—and the gray eyes twinkled for the first time—"they must be dressed up to look better in your show window."
