Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied.

    I prefer the Far Side version (which I won’t reproduce for copyright reasons and because I have no idea whatsoever how to do it). Basically, the third guy, a fat construction worker type, says “Hey! I ordered a cheeseboiger!”

  2. “Liberty … was a two-headed boon.
    There was first, the liberty of the people as a whole
    to determine the forms of their own government,
    to levy their own taxes, and to make their own laws….
    There was second, the liberty of the individual man
    to live his own life, within the limits of decency and decorum,
    as he pleased — freedom from the despotism of the majority.”
    – H. L. Mencken
    (1880-1956) American Journalist, Editor, Essayist, Linguist, Lexicographer, and Critic

    Reminds me of the story from Zen Flesh, Zen Bones by Paul Reps.

    Two Zen monks were arguing about a flag. One said “The flag is moving.”

    The other said “The wind is moving.”

    The sixth patriarch happened to be passing by. He told them: “Not the wind, not the flag; mind is moving.”

    George Carlin said, “Some people see the glass half full. Others see it half empty.
    I see a glass that’s twice as big as it needs to be.”

    Michael Feldman on his radio progam “What do You Know?” –
    “Whether the glass is half full or half empty, it’s still just half a glass”
