Hey, waxing Old Testament is really in these days.
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
Another nugget of Danny Goodness [video link] from his Tuesday scrum – it’s almost like it’s polling week, with all the scrums and whatnot:
We’re resilient, we’re survivors, ah, y’know, we basically prepared for this day. When, y’know, over the course of the last few years, you’ll notice from our Throne Speeches, we’ve talked about being self-reliant, we’ve talked about being Masters of Our Own Destiny. And we have been building up a war chest for when the feds come at us again, quite frankly.At which point a real reporter might have interjected:
“A ‘war chest’?”
“Who’s the ‘we’ who’s been building up a ‘war chest’?”
“When did ‘the feds’ last ‘come at us’?”
“What do you plan to do with this ‘war chest’ when ‘the feds come at us’?”
“So everyone’s talking about being self-reliant Masters of Our Own Destiny but what, other than repeatedly going back to ‘the feds’ for enough money to be self-reliant Masters of Our Own Destiny with, are you doing about it?”
