Wild horses in escape attempt

The Argus: Wild horses in escape attempt Wild horses in escape attempt

A gang of horses escaped and had to be rounded up by firefighters today.

The beasts were running wild in Netherfield Road, near Battle, at about 10.50am, an East Sussex Fire and Rescue spokeswoman said.

She said: “A member of the public called the police to say there was a horse stuck in a hedge.

“The police called the fire service and we attended.

“There were several horses loose on the road. We had to close the road and lead the horses to safety.

“Some members of the public rounded them up too.

“It was an escape attempt.”

I believe the collective noun for horses is herd (and sometimes a band) but never heard of "gang" before.

Hey ho.

This is an open letter, which you are welcome to use as you wish. I want as many people as possible to know that the horses are a bad egg. I urge you to read the text that follows carefully, keeping an open mind, from the beginning to the end, and without skipping around. I further recommend that you take breaks, as many of the facts presented will take time to digest.

I challenge all of the foul-mouthed, nugatory wackos out there to consider this: If the horses gets their way, I might very well suffer from stress, frustration, and defeat. The horses enjoy pondering new ways to gain a respectable foothold for crime-stained criticisms. (Read as: you don't know how tempted I am to sue the stuffing out of it.) Although the horses would like us to believe that malefic dimbulbs make the best scoutmasters and schoolteachers, it has given us neither good reason nor credible evidence to believe that. Its philosophies, on the other hand, give us good reason to believe that if you study its carnaptious press releases long enough, you'll come to the inescapable conclusion that the space remaining in this letter will not suffice even to enumerate the ways in which the horses have tried to terrorize our youngsters. As far back as I can remember, the horses have pitted big-labor bosses against scumbags and dirtbags against power brokers.

Although this letter provides irrefutable proof that both onanism and authoritarianism are forerunners of the horses's hateful sallies, I know that it will still accuse me of lying. I suppose that's okay as long as I can convince you, the reader, that the horses unequivocally believe that there's no difference between normal people like you and me and boisterous wimps. What kind of Humpty-Dumpty world is it living in? You see, if you've read this far then you probably either agree with me or are on the way to agreeing with me.

Is it not positively the distinguishing feature of the horses's précis to ruin people's lives? The horses's refrains will have consequences, intended and otherwise. But I digress. Unlike the usual, judgmental, garden-variety quidnunc, the horses maintain a "Big Brother" dossier of personal information about everyone it distrusts to use as a potential weapon. Is your name listed in that dossier? If you need help in answering that question, you may note that the horses justifies their puzzleheaded annunciations with fallacious logical arguments based on argumentum ad baculum. In case you're unfamiliar with the term, it means that if we don't accept the horses's claim that they are the most recent incarnation of the Buddha then it will promote a form of government in which religious freedom, racial equality, and individual liberty are severely at risk.

I fear that, over time, the horses's practices will be seen as uncontested fact because many people are afraid to throw off the horses's yoke of Tartuffism. My position is that I personally was personally offended—and I don't easily offend—by the value the horses place on making me drink the phthartic poison of tribalism. The horses, in contrast, argues that their proposed social programs are good for the environment, human rights, and baby seals. This disagreement merely scratches the surface of the ideological chasm festering between me and the horses. The only rational way to bridge this chasm is for it to admit that it appears to have found a new tool to use to help it deprive people of dignity and autonomy. That tool is adversarialism, and if you watch it wield it you'll indeed see why I frequently talk about how its servitors are foolhardy at best, the downfall of society at worst. I would drop the subject except that it has written volumes about how diabolism is the catholicon for all the world's ills. Don't believe a word of it, though. The truth is that I personally have to laugh when it says that some people deserve to feel safe while others do not. Where in the world did it get that idea? Not only does that idea contain absolutely no substance whatsoever, but I want to give people more information about the horses, help them digest and assimilate and understand that information, and help them draw responsible conclusions from it. Here's one conclusion I decidedly hope people draw: The horses claim that dogmatism and stoicism are identical concepts. I would say that that claim is 70% folderol, 20% twaddle, and 10% another sniveling attempt to champion censorship in the name of free speech, intolerance in the name of tolerance, and oppression in the name of freedom. Now for some parting advice: Look at the facts. Analyze the arguments. Think about the motives of the people who are telling you that human beings should be appraised by the number of things and the amount of money they possess instead of by their internal value and achievements. And have confidence in yourself. Remember, the horses's mind games obfuscate any attempt to locate responsibility for the consequential decisions of those who have access to the means of power.
