REDUX: A CLUE for THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Share

Another try at providing a clue for the Democratic Party.

For weeks, I have tried to write a message containing a clue for the Democratic Party. This early morning, it came to me in a dream, that I had not yet tried brevity and simplicity. Let me give those a whack, if I am so capable. Here is my simple and brief message to the Democratic Party.

Hello, Democratic Party? I approach as a friend. Here BELOW is a clue for the Democratic Party! ………………

I like People

NHW-RON-ThumbnailI like people. Not as much as I like dogs, but I like people pretty well. People are damn interesting. There is never a dull moment with people. People provide me new ideas to write about everyday, and some of them do it several times per day on average.

Consider this as an example, just last week one of the people I know woke me up at 7:00 AM on Father's Day with his noisey lawn mower. He has a lawn about the size of a postage stamp, but he mows it with the very best and noisiest of equipment, and he likes to mow it on Sunday mornings early, before I am even awake. Being it is such a tiny little lawn, it only takes him about 15 minutes to mow it, but that is just enough time and racket to get me irrepairably awake, long before I want to be. I have tried to discuss this early morning lawn mowing with this lawn mower enthusiast, but he has been a little difficult to have a conversation with.  People who know him will understand what I mean by that.

Boat Load of Knowledge to New Harmony

In the winter of 1825-1826 Robert Owen and Robert McClure brought a large keel boat loaded with scientists, teachers, philosophers, writers and other learned people from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to New Harmony, Indiana.

It was arguably the largest gathering of learned people to ever assemble on a single boat.

Philadelphia’s loss was New Harmony’s gain,  and neither city has ever been the same, since.

Robert Owen called it the BOAT LOAD OF KNOWLEDGE.
