I do have a test today It's on European Socialism. I mean, really, what's the point? I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So, who gives a crap if they're Socialists? They could be fascist anarchists, it still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car. - Ferris Bueller
Thanks to Boston Charlie we learned that this year is the 30th anniversary of Ferris Buellers Day Off. And after reading the post BC linked - Ferris Bueller vs. The Snowflake Generation - I decided to dedicate todays post to Ferris instead of the obligatory Primary Day Candidate Review Rundown and Delegate Count. Im sure youll be as pleased by my decision as I am.
To summarize the referenced Ferris vs. the Snowflakes article: the author, a millennial himself, concludes the movie contains far too much American initiative, American ingenuity and what would now be considered microaggresion and triggering to ever make it past the PC police today. Like The Chalking Incidents on college campuses, just watching it could cause hives and other adverse reactions. Just like Trump, who Rich Lowry said is so electrically charged that he is like the Washington Redskins of political candidates so politically incorrect that some people cant bear to see or hear his name.
I have discussed Ferris Bueller in the past, once when David Plouffes book, The Audacity To Win, came out - a smug little tome on how cleverly he positioned Barack Hussein Obama as Americas transformational god. I questioned at the time whether Plouffe and Bueller werent separated at birth:
Or, given the gap in time, possibly Ferris just grew up to become Plouffe: another manipulator extraordinaire.
Indeed, FBDO proved to be somewhat prescient of the Obama presidency:
Sloane: What are we going to do?
Ferris: The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is "what aren't we going to do?"
Since its been a long time, heres a 3 minute condensed version of the iconic movie, in case you forgot the good parts:
I think we all remember how things turned out for Daddys prized Ferrari however:
And Ferris had about as much empathy for Cameron when his future inheritance went flying out of the garage into the ravine as Barry did for his countrymen when he sent their country flying into the ditch:
A man with priorities so far out of whack doesn't deserve such a fine automobile. - Ferris Bueller, Ferris Buellers Day Off
