Roller's Philosophical Friday: Power

Phew muleteers that election race was a close one!  We all had our ears glued to the radio on Wednesday morning hoping to hear who had won 'THAT' election.  Well seems like our favourite candidate landed the 'big job' once again.  Now I'm not a political commentator and don't know anything about ObamaCare, the economy or other such human like things but I do know two things that clinched my support for Obama.

1/. Any party that proudly displays the donkey as their logo (albeit unofficial...) is the best in our book.  Move over the Republican elephant!

2/. When Mitt Romney came to the UK he insulted us A LOT, us brit ponies and mules were not impressed when he thought we couldn't put on a good Olympics and announced this to the world(among other such insults....), hmmm Mr Romney shame on you... aren't we supposed to be friends?

Anyway us Muleteers hope our over the pond friends  have a more settled time, what with elections, storms and the like it must be time for calm?  So here's hoping that the man in charge keeps calm and carries on as us Brits would say and doesn't let the power go to his head. 

In the meantime here's my quote for today....

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
Abraham Lincoln


  1. I love you Roller! Wish you could come to the US and teach some of our politicians some manners!
    I thought that FELLOW was rude also.

    I am glad although many are upset at how things turned out.
    You have a great weekend!

    1. Dearest Val, if politicians had the sense and manners of shetland ponies and mules we would all be better off or so FH says :-) I hope for harmony and that both sides can work together. Wishing you a great weekend too!

  2. Dearest Roller, you are right, between the hurricane and the elections there was a lot to be done. Now it is calm, and after the first snow and biting cold, balmy weather again!.

    I always wish that more environmental and animal welfare issues were on the agenda. Could not agree more on the donkey logo!.

    1. This is true Carmen, when humans consider more than themselves the world will be a better place. Wishing you some sunny days and calm ahead. Sending you Roller Polar warm snuffles xx
