The Pope and the Dali Lama Issue Mittens and Socks to Members of US Congress
The Pope and the Dali Lama have interceded with mittens and socks in the US Congress as a way to reduce finger pointing. A variety of finger pointing was used in a partisan manner Saturday at midnight when the government was shutdown.
Diagram 1 shows bad fingers in the pointing and casting of blame. Ooo naughty.
Picture 1 – Borrowed from “Uncle Sam Wants you for the US Army” poster though not necessarily bad is accusatory in the Bag Finger pointing matches.
Picture 2 – Index point finger of blame (not “fickle-finger-of-fate” award) is saying Position D: “You are to blame.” Position R: “No, you are to blame.” Bickering (petulant quarreling) or in the words of Monte Python “Nay saying.”
Picture 3 – Multiple pointy fingers — a din of bickering nay-saying ninnies. Dems and Repubs pointing en-masse.
Picture 4 – The Ultimate Bad Finger – Partisan Stand-Off
Diagram 2 Fingers and hands of Peace – no explanation
When the Pope and the Dali Lama first introduced mittens and “sock puppet” play puppets attacked and bit each other.
Who do you think benefited from the shut down?
The American People?
It was the Koch Brothers and Vladimir Putin.
Oh and mitten and sock manufactures too.
