Politics: The other white meat

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

The other day, my doctor told me that I should be taking antibiotics for an ear infection. I immediately recognized his “hidden agenda” and yelled at him, “You’re just being medical! You’re only saying that for medical reasons! That’s your problem you know!” Well, now he thinks I need some other medication also.

But he just doesn’t get it. The world is so full of people saying things simply because they have an agenda. Take lawyers for example. A lawyer might advise you to review a contract before signing it. Yeah, right – that lawyer is only saying that for “legal reasons.” And perhaps a building contractor might tell you that you need to consider bracing an interior wall. Again, the agenda is clear: the contractor is only saying that for “architectural reasons.”

Teachers telling students to study – they’re just being “educational.” Don’t you just hate it when they do that? And accountants telling you what to deduct and what not to deduct – they’re just being “financial.” What are they thinking?
