On the Contrary, the NYTimes Is Right!

Blaska noted this sentence in a NYTimes articls.

“America holds onto an undemocratic assumption from its founding: that some people deserve more power than others.

Those "some" are people who went to the right schools.  They live in New York City, Boston, and D.C., and also inhabit a few State capitols.  They are usually being endlessly fluffed and pleasured by others who buy ink by the barrel and would really, really, like to deserve more power--but won't get it.

But in reality, they only think they are 'deserving.'  We let them think that for a while, then we elect Donald Trump.

In fact, long before the NYTimes staffers figured out that their diapers really do stink, a fellow named Eric Arthur Blair wrote a well-known book using the quoted thought as a leitmotiv.

But a reminder, boys and girls of the Times:  pigs get slaughtered.  That was the chapter in Blair's book that didn't get published.  You don't want to be part of that chapter, do you, boys and girls??

Yo Dad; I believe it's Pigs Get Fat, Hogs Get Slaughtered.

From another angle: You can trim a cat 100 times, but you can only skin him once!

Yah, Gotch....I actually know the old saying (and where it came from.) But (having gone past the old Oscar Mayer plant just yesterday) in our world both get slaughtered.
