I just read that to a friend of mine staying with me for a while.

He just about fell off the couch laughing..

Yep, we'll hear all the tired old promises we know they'll never keep.

You're right. And at least fairy tales have some basis in reality if you go far enough back. But promises from politicians of any stripe are completely illusionary.

I think they teach that at politician school! LOL

Tanie said...

sounds like you've got a long long time of hearing them coming up...!!!

Jan said...

Morris..and the part that is not so funny, is that they know they are nothing but empty promises, even as they spew them out!

Jan said...

Hermit.. sometimes the whole process seems like an illusion! :)

Jan said...

rockync..and they seem to learn it very well! :)

Jan said...

tanie..I'm afraid you are right about that, and before it's all over, we'll probably be hearing them in our sleep..fairy tales turned to nightmares!

The difference here is that the "once upon a time" fairy tales usually have morals to them.

Jan said...

frank family..I know, but unfortunately many morals have fallen by the wayside, but there are still those who will believe the fairy tales, though.

The Frank Family said...

If we could only remember the fairy tales and see the world and eachother through the eyes of a child. My twin 4-year-old girls help me out with that a whole bunch.

Jason..what a blessing that is!

I'll bet they keep you on your toes, too! LOL
