‘The Chowderhead Quote of the Week’ (2015)

See the source image

He’s on the right side of history!

Why choose between wickedness and folly as the foundation for your whole society, when you can have both?

Comedian Sarah Silverman says we should always follow “the college-aged” because they’re always “on the right side of history.” Have you noticed that the people who really like to use that phrase never know any history at all? Their ignorance, carefully cultivated by the public schools, is truly profound.

Anyway, that’s the folly part. The wickedness is supplied by many sources.

    Funny how all these people “on the right side of history” turn out to be on the left side, hmmm?

    And we’re supposed to take our ques from those who a few years prior we’re living in their parents house and talking with a squeaky voice, uh huh. College aged people are some of the most gullible easy manipulated groups out there. There idealistic and think they know it all, but haven’t had enough life experience in the real world to know any better.

    Wow good point you made: ““on the right side of history.” Have you noticed that the people who really like to use that phrase never know any history at all? “

    Frightening the way Joe Collige hacked into your post right in the middle – may that never happen again.

    I heard it said recently that only 30% of Americans have higher education degrees. This makes sense when you consider 50% of New York City high school students never graduate, and 70% of young black men in California can neither read nor write.
