The two-Party system
The Yorkipoo versus the Taco Terrier Parties
Let’s compare our current two-party political realm to the world of dog breeding.
Dog breeds have always been mixed with varying degrees of success or failure. It is thought that inter-breeding can eliminate negative, recessive traits and have positive effects called “hybrid vigor”. Lately, however, some dog breeders have seemingly lost all perspective in their attempts to create “designer dogs” that can be marketed and sold to wealthy customers.
Some designer dogs are good. Some are haphazard and ill-conceived. Below, thanks to more.com, are three of the good and two of the bad.
“The cocker spaniel–poodle mixes are smart, loyal, and mellow. They’re also mostly very healthy and require little maintenance. Because they are hypoallergenic, don’t shed, and are dander-free, they require no special grooming other than weekly brushing.”
“The puggle, a mix of pug and beagle, is wonderful around kids and are as comfortable playing fetch as they are cuddling on your lap.”
“Dog “designers” in the 1980s got the idea to combine the highly intelligent breeds of poodle and Labrador to create a super smart pup. Labradoodles are also playful, affectionate, and hypoallergenic.”
No offense to anyone who may have one and love the little monster, “… but be warned if you’re considering a Yorkipoo; they’re mischievous little nuggets. With the intelligence of a poodle and fearless energy of a Yorkshire terrier, Yorkipoos are tiny little barking dynamos. This makes them sort of adorable for a while, but prospective owners should definitely invest in a good, strong leash and maybe some earplugs.”
“Taco terror is more like it. When you cross a toy fox terrier and a Chihuahua, you get a tiny dog with a huge tendency to make trouble. Taco terriers have no problem approaching much bigger dogs and trying to shake things up, so their owners must work very hard to socialize them.”
Proposed: Let’s consign the elephant and the donkey to the trash heap of history. If you are a partisan Republican today, you are a Yorkipoo; and today’s partisan Democrats are Taco Terriers.
It should be obvious to everyone that the two-party system is not working. The two parties are powerful and rich political entities that have over engineered themselves like many of the over engineered “designer dogs” available now.
