Thread: For CP: Dakota Indian Tribal Wisdom

  1. #1

    Default For CP: Dakota Indian Tribal Wisdom

    The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to generation, says that,

    "When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount."

    > However, in government more advanced strategies are often employed, such as:

    > 1. Buying a stronger whip.
    > 2. Changing riders.
    > 3. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
    > 4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride
    > dead horses.
    > 5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
    > 6. Reclassifying the dead horse as living-impaired.
    > 7. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.
    > 8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
    > 9. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase dead
    > horse's performance.
    > 10. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve
    > the dead horse's performance.
    > 11. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is
    > less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially
    more to the bottom line of economy than do some other horses.
    > 12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
    > And of course....
    > 13. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.

    A couple of these pics I already posted on the green site, but I see that entire Zen thread over there disappeared. (They can now resume nice, safe fireside chats comparing recipes. LOL ) Meanwhile, CP, here are those pics again and a bison-skulls pic that is enough to make anyone cry.
