…the Gormogons gave to me:
This is the second Boxing Day that the Gormogons have been around the blogosphere posting on various topics. Hopefully we’ll been entertaining and educating for years to come. For those in countries that don’t celebrate the day, Boxing Day is traditionally the day when wealthier people gave gifts to those less fortunate. Gifts were stored in a “Christmas Box” until this day when it was opened and the gifts were distributed. The tradition was expanded in the UK to include gifting to laborers and servants.
So what’s the take away? First, the Gormogons strongly encourage charitable acts – if you get a chance, do what you can, even a little bit can go a long way. Second, government mandated wealth redistribution is not charity. There is no dispute here, the ObamaCare plan, Cap and Trade and other Obama administration initiatives that do just this are social engineering experiments and not charity. Those that believe in the Christian teachings should not embrace this as acts of kindness in that it’s not of their own choosing.
Now if we can just get Sleestak to stop hiding in the box trying to be gifted away.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
