A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Meaning:

A picture tells a story just as well as, if not better than, a lot of written words.

Origin:

This phrase emerged in the USA in the early part of the 20th century. Its introduction is widely attributed to Frederick R. Barnard, who published a piece commending the effectiveness of graphics in advertising with the title "One look is worth a thousand words", in Printer's Ink, December 1921. Barnard claimed the phrase's source to be oriental by adding "so said a famous Japanese philosopher, and he was right".

Printer's Ink printed another form of the phrase in March 1927, this time suggesting a Chinese origin:

"Chinese proverb. One picture is worth ten thousand words."


The idea that a picture can convey what might take many words to express was voiced by a character in Ivan S. Turgenev's novel Fathers and Sons, 1862:

"The drawing shows me at one glance what might be spread over ten pages in a book."

Let's inject a little reality into this gloat-fest.

Hillary did nothing her predecessors did not do too. In fact, she followed state department rules more closely than otheres, including Colin Powel.

So, could the FBI really indict Hillary, and only Hillary, for doing what is basically standard practice at the state department? Not if they didn't want to be political they couldn't.

This is the opposite of the FBI being political, this is the FBI refusing to be used as a tool in partisan politics. Either indict them all, or none of them. You can't single one Secretary of State out.

This is finally the end of the Benghasi witch hunt. How do I know it was a witchunt? Simple - in a moment of stupendously stupid honesty, would-have-been house speaker Kevin McCarthy said so! https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... story.html

That illadvised burst of honestly cost him the chace to replace John Boehner, but he let the cat out of the bag, and it can't be shoved back in.

Voter fraud is a serious problem. If we want to register and verify every gun owner/purchaser maybe we should put as much energy into requiring voter registration/verification with a Voter ID law first.
