is like a heavy axe without an edge,
fitter to bruise than polish."

I have a problem with "seeing" this one. Since when do you "polish" with an axe, whether sharp or dull?

    Cut is a better term than polish. Picture this ... a rotund legislator chopping a great tree with a block of steel at the end of an axe handle, declaring it the best method to fell trees, then writing a law to make it the only method allowed. Our government has severely bruised us with their authority.
