Dead-Horse Theory

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians (passed on from generation to generation) says that:

"When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount."

However, in government, education, and in corporate America , more advanced strategies are often employed, such as:

1. Buying a stronger whip.

2. Changing riders.

3. Appointing a committee to study the horse.

4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride dead horses.

5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.

6. Reclassifying the dead horse as living-impaired.

7. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.

8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.

9. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase dead horse's performance.

10. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse's performance.

11.. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.

12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.

. . . and of course . . .

13. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

"Easy is the descent to Avernus, for the door to the Underworld lies upon both day and night. But to retrace your steps and return to the breezes above- that's the task, that's the toil."

You forgot declaring that you revived the dead horse.

Bombing the dead horse into oblivijustice. http://www.debate.org...

Negotiating with the Grim Reaper to bring the horse back to life.

Consider the dead horse "discouraged" to preserve economic statistics.

Stimulate the dead horse with half a trillion dollars so that the rider doesn't have to find a new one.

After six months, the dead horse drops out of official statistics so that it no longer reduces the average speed for horses; however, the government continues to feed, water, and shelter the dead horse, and the jockey continues to be paid.
