Everything Before “But” Is Bull

Over the years, there have been only a few phrases or sayings that have stuck with me.  We all have learned the Golden Rule from our parents and that is a basic way to you’re your life.  What I am talking about are phrases that stick in my head and make me hesitate when I say something often forcing me to reword what I was about to say.

I first heard one of these phrases on one of my favorite talk shows, Quinn and Rose in the Morning.  One of my favorite quotes from Jim Quinn is “everything before “but” is bull.”  When you speak and use the word “but” to qualify the statement, that qualification is nonsense, untrue, a lie, or bull.
