Knowing your limits.

Happy New Year!



This is Adlai Stevenson, the American Democratic politician and two-time unsuccessful presidential candidate upon whom Peter Sellers partially based his performance as President Muffley in Dr. Strangelove.



In 1949, when Stevenson was Governor of Illinois, a bill was proposed in that state to restrict the movement of domestic cats, in order to protect rare songbirds. Stevenson vetoed the bill, with this judgement:



"I cannot agree that it should be the declared public policy of Illinois that a cat visiting a neighbor’s yard or crossing the highways is a public nuisance. It is in the nature of cats to do a certain amount of unescorted roaming. Many live with their owners in apartments or other restricted premises, and I doubt if we want to make their every brief foray an opportunity for a small game hunt by zealous citizens—with traps or otherwise.

We are all interested in protecting certain varieties of birds. That cats destroy some birds, I well know, but I believe this legislation would further but little the worthy cause to which its proponents give such unselfish effort. The problem of cat versus bird is as old as time. If we attempt to resolve it by legislation who knows but what we may be called upon to take sides as well in the age old problems of dog versus cat, bird versus bird, or even bird versus worm. In my opinion, the State of Illinois and its local governing bodies already have enough to do without trying to control feline delinquency."


I wish he'd won.



(Bonus Stevenson fact: when he was considering whether to run for President a third time, the Russians approached him secretly and offered him assistance. He told the ambassador who made the approach that he considered it "highly improper, indiscreet and dangerous to all concerned", and promptly reported it to the sitting President, his political enemy. I mean, obviously that's what anyone would do. I don't know why I even mention it. )

This is wonderful.

While not nearly as quote-fabricated as Churchill, Stevenson does have one possibly apocryphal exchange I've always loved:

"A popular story is told about Adlai Stevenson (1900-1965) when he was running for president in 1952 (or in 1956). Someone heard Stevenson’s impressive speech and said, “Every thinking person in America will be voting for you.”

Stevenson replied, “I’m afraid that won’t do—I need a majority.”

A fascinating story, Mr. Finnemore, especially liked your own bit of political snark at the end. I sincerely hope that you produce more Double Acts or more Souvenir Program, or whatever your creative mind thinks up. I've been a fan of yours for a few years now and would say that I'm a comedy geek of yours that I've become quite a bit weird about it. I really hope to hear from you about anything in the works.

Common sense was as uncommon back then, as it is now. Why do we still insist on calling it that, then?

I'm so happy to share to you how I got my blank atm card from nash. My blank ATM card can withdraw a maximum amount of $8,000 daily. I got it from Him last week and now I have $ 550,000 in my home . The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it, it is not traceable and now i have money for business and enough money for me and my family to live on really happy with MR Nash because two people took my money not knowing that they were scams. But happy now.MR nash sent the card through DHL and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him now he's no scammer pretending to have the ATM card, he's giving it out for freecontact him and get yours and no one ever gets caught. I'm grateful to him because he changed my story now am rich . His email address is(nashwilliams4@gmail.com)....

My husband was so smooth at hiding her infidelity and I had no proof for months, I saw a recommendation about a Private investigator and decided to give him a try.. the result was incredible because all my cheating husbands text messages, whatsapp, facebook and his phone conversations was sent directly to my Personal computer. Mr James helped me put a round-the-clock monitoring on him and I got concrete evidence and gave it to my lawyer..I say no to infidelity if your husband is an expert at hiding his cheating adventures contact him through Gmail he will help you(Worldcyberhackers) or WhatsApp : +12678773020

Have you for a minute thought changing your grades in your school's system permanently is an unachievable task? I thought so too. I was desperate and in dire need of help. I stumbled on MAELSTROM1212@GMAIL.COM after frantically searching the web. In one sentence, MAELSTROM1212@GMAIL.COM changed my life. It has been a little over 6 months since he and the team helped with a grade reconstruction. I promised him and the team this long overdue review of a job brilliantly executed. Thank you once again.

I can confirm that just today, less than 1 month from date of receipt credit bureaus got my letters in which i hired a credit repair expert (QUADHACKED 'at' GMAIL.COM) to help me delete medical collections and other late payment records. Trans Union has removed all 6 medical collection accounts. None could be verified. I didn't even receive a letter from Trans Union at first ,but did receive a notification from a credit monitoring app. Later on i got confirmations letter from the Federal credit bureau and trans union . Thanks Q U A D H A C K E D @ G M A I L . C O M ,I'M also scoring an 800+ this is so nice!!! Finally free of that nonsense bondage.
