May 17//Bushisms

On the occasion of Algerian liberation the leaders of the independence movement(they were young, 25) there were a number of, what we call "bushisms" uttered.

"The economy was at zero, we're going to multiply it by ten!"

"We were at the edge of a pit and we're taking a step forward!"

I am wary that these are Moroccan jokes and legends about their oh so close neighbor with oil to the east. But I was reassured that the source is reliable, and was actually present at these roaring revolutionary speeches.
