some pertinent (not) thoughts about that photo of the ship and fishermen posted by schnitzer79

that ship appears to leaning toward the liberal side

the ship is straight up and down, the rest of the world is tilted

the ship belongs to the guys in the green hat, shorts and shirt, you can tell because they left their green leash hanging off of the stern

if you look close near the fishermen, you can see where some one has started to turn the water green for St. Patrick's Day celebration, they want to turn Chicago, IL's green river to shame

Some interesting analogies
Something to add to "Liberal" thought on how the ship represents the state of the world. True the ship is leaning or listed to the left or to Port. The color of the light used to indicate the left or Port side of a ship is Red. The same color used to represent the political parties of the more liberal thinking legislators and politicians. Some would say a "Perfectly Fitting analogy"
I don't know however, what to say about the state of the world when it comes to the Green light used to identify the right or Starboard side of the ship. A color which could sometimes represent politicians with an extreme left wing environmentalist stand and of course the Irish of all political stripes. The only Blue Lights which usually represent the more conservative side of the political spectrum are, on a ship, used as a reference light to help steer and keep the ship in the middle of a narrow channel or canal. This "Port Listing Ship" analogy quite literally puts the "Blue" Conservatives in the middle reaching out the "Green" environmentalists and Leprechauns to prevent them from falling into the "Red" Liberal camp.

well, not so much your color scheme doesn't work for the US

in the United States the relationship of colors and political parties has shifted over time

Red vs. Blue: A history of how we use political colors - The Washington Post

currently the Democratic Party is considered the liberal/progressive/left leaning party and is Blue

the Republican Party is considered conservative/right wing party and is Red

back in the past, each party had various sections Liberal/Moderate/Conservative. Now there are no liberal or moderate Republicans and no conservative Democrats

of course we also have the range of other political parties as well

here is another link re politics and colors when it was done I can't tell but the Black Panthers are long gone

It may be that part of the problem is that you don't know how to spell "colour"!

I can spell colour and even labour

but if I want to spell the words correctly I spell those words:

color and labor

and the guy from the other coast of Canada - nova scotia did too:


. . .. . The color of the . . . The same color . . . A color . . .

But the plate in the photo is a Saskatchewan plate. Why would a registration number in Saskatchewan reflect an area code in British Columbia?

That's what is cool - it is just a coincidence.
