I am assuming that most folks know the first phrase in the title above. Here is what my friends at Wikipedia say that means:
In a nutshell that means don’t throw the good stuff out with the bad. That sounds like a common-sense thing to me, but it sure seems like there are a lot of folks out there that missed that lesson when it was taught. The folks I’m talking about are the ones who put the current yahoo in the Oval Office. They just seem to be so upset about not getting their share that they want to take everything away from everyone else instead of just working to get it for themselves.
We as a democracy have managed to survive 242 years with the constitution produced by our Founding Fathers. Yeah, it needs some dusting off and sprucing up, but it is the reason we are still around when so many other democracies have come and gone.
The current guy in the Oval Office just doesn’t seem to have any respect for what our founders put out. I don’t know if it is because he hasn’t read it or just doesn’t understand it? Or maybe it is because he thinks we are a monarchy. Six of one, half dozen of the other I suspect… Will someone send him a large-print copy to look over. Maybe one written with a very large permanent marker. He seems to favor that mode of writing if he favors any at all.
