Incense and Peppermint by Strawberry Alarm Clock
Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
Dead kings, many things I can't define
Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time
Who cares what games we choose
Little to win, but nothing to lose
Not Hobson's Choice, but Pascal's Wager or maybe Morton's Fork.
Morton's Fork an argument used by the English prelate and statesman John Morton (c.1420–1500), as Chancellor in demanding gifts for the royal treasury: if a man lived well he was obviously rich and if he lived frugally then he must have savings. The phrase in this form dates from the mid 19th century, but Francis Bacon in his Historie of the Raigne of King Henry the Seventh (1622) says that, ‘There is a tradition of a dilemma that Bishop Morton…used to raise up the benevolence to higher rates; and some called it his Fork.’ The term is now found in wider allusive use. http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1O214-MortonsFork.html

If TRUMP 2016 loses then I will shrug off my WHITE MAN'S BURDEN and leave the world to the Dindus and Done Nuffins. Read and understand Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a prescription for the future. TRUMP 2016
