SOUR GRAPES
© XXVII  (v 1.0.1)

By Morley Evans



Trom second hand sources I can surmise that the medical doctors with whom I have had a little problem have been dismissing my complaint as "sour grapes". This establishes their level of maturity at 12 and emphasizes that they really do not understand the gravity of their misdeeds. Such boys would not understand.

"Sour grapes" is expressed by 12-year-olds to dismiss dissatisfaction with decisions that referees have made to excuse their infractions.

How quaint.

"Sour grapes" indicates that the infraction itself is not denied: The infraction is admitted and accepted by the offending scofflaw.

When I was a child, I didn't play sports. I had asthma. I didn't play hockey, or baseball, or football or basketball. I was a gymnast: a good one. I did not learn what the other boys learned who played team sports. Though old now, some of them are still boys. But in the world of grown ups, dissatisfaction with decisions excusing infractions cannot be dismissed with "sour grapes".

YHWH thought what was done to Naboth was pretty serious business. We can be sure of that. [1] Lord and Lady Black should have paid attention to that case. But they are used to getting away with their crimes, like some medical doctors in Saskatchewan.

Social hygiene demands that problems be accurately identified and dealt with appropriately. The medical system (and the legal system as it applies to the medical system) in Saskatchewan is a scandal. Medicine here works at all only because most doctors, pharmacists, therapists, and nurses, are caring, competent and decent. In my case, it took dozens of people to help me overcome what two ignorant and irresponsible medical doctors and one pharmacist [2] first did and then multiplied ten-thousand times when they (and their lawyers) laughed in my face. (hubris [3]) Pity them.

These two [4] are used to getting away with their crimes. They say, "Sour grapes?" Their judges shall say, "Tar and feather them and mount their heads on pikes."

 






[1] 1 Kings 21;19: And you shall say to him, `Thus says the LORD, "Have you killed, and also taken possession?"' And you shall say to him, `Thus says the LORD: "In the place where dogs licked up the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick your own blood."'"
