    The pendulum swings --- we had swung SO FAR LEFT that even a bunch of Democrats are worried.

    And, yes, it would be great if the move to the right were longer lasting.

    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      It is a metaphor to describe shifts within the USA in political power between the two main parties.

      That is just off the top of my head.
      Why do you think a swing to the right will address any [or all] of those?

          Just look at the cities and states controlled by the left.
          They are in crisis, much of which results from their really really bad policies, both economic and civic.

                  You're not implying she's some kind of or something, are you?

                    Typically squirrely behavior.

                    Typical Ninja Squirrel Assassin behavior.

                    For instance, they haven't clipped a singe whisker off any cats in over two years.

                          Before 1963.

                            That's asking for a simple answer to a complex issue. Different things were "at its best" at different times.

                              How far back before 1963 and what made it better in your opinion?

                                Hence my request for elaboration after receiving an initial reply. It will give Cow Poke a chance to demonstrate his skills in writing a cogent and detailed reply without [hopefully] resorting to name-calling.

                                I would not expect an immediate reply.
