An old farmer was stuck in the horse and buggy age. Whenever he wanted to go into town, which really wasn't that far away, he'd have to go out to the barn, hitch his ornery old horse, kicking and biting, to his buckboard, for a bumpy ride into town. Coming back, he'd have to unhitch the animal, with all the unpleasantness that involved, put away the harness and gear, and end the day exhausted.
One day, the farmer decided he'd had enough, and he bought himself a brand new, shiny red sports car. Now, a trip to town was ten minutes, round trip, and the farmer was exhilarated by the ride.
The mean, ornery old horse turned to his stablemates and said, "It was my policies that made this happen!"
Remember this story whenever a horse, or at least, a horse's behind, tries to take credit for something he not only didn't do, but couldn't do.

The Blog Commandments
I. Commenting here is a privilege, not a right.
II. Disagreement is welcome, even encouraged, but spam, unduly profane, or offensive speech is subject to removal by the staff and management of this blog. Insults from the FBI (Foul mouthed, Boring and Ignorant) and anonymous trolls hardest hit.
III. Feel free to use, in unaltered form, any Photoshops I create with the 'Proof Positive' address on them. A simple link in return is all we ask, so anyone else who likes it knows where to find more.
IV. The artwork that John does is his own, so you should write him for permission to use it.
V. As a matter of policy, I never knowingly print lies or untruths in my blog or Tweets, unless I'm quoting correctly the liberal who told them.
