    If the difference makes no difference, is there a difference?

    (From an industrial accident engineer I once had to work with)

    ALL vehicle accidents are due to a differential in speed.

    Dale...you've done it again...teased my brain and provoked a journey to deeper thought. "What's the difference????" Well...it certainly depends on approach/attitude, does it not? For example, if you are in a position where you are supposed to SERVE others, and instead, treat them as if YOU are the one to be served, THERE'S THE DIFFERENCE. Using the phrase "what's the difference," in a condescending (dismissive) manner indicates distaste toward a serious inquisitor.

    Therefore...in recent history, a person who was in a public service position, and treating it as an "entitlement," was being questioned about their actions in a serious matter. It was quite obvious that the person's attitude was that those inquiring were not deserving of learning "the difference" (answers).

    Finally, very frustrated with the persistence of serious questions, the so-called "public servant" in a very animated condescending dismissive manner blurted out "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?" To that person, the attitude was that the difference makes no difference, and thus...should make no difference.

    However, there was a difference. The attitude of much of the public was NOT dismissive. To them, a serious matter. So THERE is the DIFFERENCE. It was a difference of perspective and assigned importance. So much so, that that public servant's efforts to continue serving was "DISMISSED!"

    Therefore...in the spirit of the title of this thread, the public TOOK NOTE!

    John,
    You have taken an interesting twist on the "saying" . I took it from from something one of my fellow workers used to say and he often gave me pause for thought. He was from Wisconsin.
    Now the saying never came back to mind from political speak but was summoned up when a facebook know-it-all was lecturing the world on correctly referring to prewar cars.
    Evidently his mission was to have the populace check serial numbers to see a car referred to was literally built before the date of WWII declaration. Thus I remembered, "If the difference makes................

    I'd be willing to bet large sums that the majority of the voters agreed it did not make a difference.

Give it to the people at the bottom and the people at the top will have it before night, anyhow. But it will at least have passed through the poor fellow's hands." --None wiser than Will Rogers

    Two-in-one is a BS term, because one is not big enough to hold two.
    That's why two was created.
