Once Upon a Time...
Once upon a time...
The King called on the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the
weather forecast for the next few hours. The royal weatherman assured
him that there was no chance of rain for at least four days.
So the King went fishing with his wife, the Queen. On the way he met a
farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, "Your Majesty,
you should return to the palace! In just a short time I expect a huge
amount of rain to fall in this area."
The King was polite and considerate, he replied: "Thanks for your
concern, but don't worry. It's not going to rain today. I hold the palace
meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and
experienced professional. And besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave
me a very different forecast. I trust him."
So the King continued on his way. However, a short time later a
torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked
and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful
Furious, the King returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the
professional. Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the
prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster.
The farmer said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about
forecasting. I obtained the information about rain today from my donkey. If
I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain
very soon." So the King hired the donkey instead.
And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in the
government and occupy its highest and most influential positions.
The practice is unbroken to this day.

Never, under any circumstances, ever become a refugee.
Die if you must, but die on your home turf with your face to the wind, not in some stinking hellhole 2,000 kilometers away, among people you neither know nor care about.
