A Mayday metaphor
In the social-democracy of Great Britain, students gathered this morning at dawn on the historic Magdalen Bridge in Oxford to celebrate May Day by taking an ill-advised leap into the shallow River Cherwell. The UK Daily Mail tells us that the May Day leap is.
Believed to have started in the 1970s, the habit is actively discouraged following a spate of injuries as students hit the bottom of the shallow stream.
About 40 people were hurt during the celebrations in 2005, with some of them taken to hospital.
We should salute the students who engage in this annual ritual. Could there be a more fitting celebration of May Day anywhere in the world? A group of students, their skulls filled to overflowing with socialist propaganda (courtesy of the union controlled public education system) meet at daybreak to leap from a bridge into a shallow stream, now that's clever!
At least Britain's May Day jumpers are small in number and only hurt themselves (and sometimes the overburdened NHS). Meanwhile in America we have seen what can happen when a majority of our citizens take an ill-advised leap into the deceptively shallow waters of socialism. Nearly a year and a half after the freedom killing jump in to the calm pool of Obamaism the broken remnants of our way of life are floating to the surface after having been crushed on the jagged rocks of tyranny.
