Idiomatic phrases don't imply Masonic influences

I've read a few posts where people take everyday figures of speech and say that the Masons have taken over. For instance:

"Three square meals a day"
"Be on the square"
"He's a square, man"

And so forth.

If any of this is true, then the Freemasons must be plotting to unleash a 50-foot giant ape on New York City. I've been watching the original 1930's King Kong, and the dude who goes out to catch him says all sorts of stuff like "Yeah, I'm really on the level. I'm square. That's a square deal."

So is he really saying "I'm really a Mason. I'm a Mason. That's a Masonic deal" - I don't think so.

Case-in-point: Sometimes a phrase is just a phrase. Just because an object has 4 sides does not mean that the Masons were responsible. Right angles don't imply conspiracies. When African-Americans call each other Brother, it is an endearing term - not a Masonic fraternal gesture. When the President shakes another world leader's hand, it is most likely not a Bavarian Illuminati Satanic Death Grip Handshake.

Okay, I'm off my soapbox now.

Why didn't you mention "I dream of Genie?"

What woman would talk this way to her bf/husband:

"Yes, Master"

"Right Away, Master"

Masonic mind control at its bravest.

Here are some other non-masonic usages (I presume . . .)


Travellers Insurance.

Union levels
a) apprentice
b) journeyman
c) shop steward

And an online roll-call of infamy lists Henry F. Warden, Sr. as the one-time mayor of the notorious Bluefield, West Virginia.

Even fictional TV characters hint at masonic power in the world:

Dallas featured the notoriously wicked "J.R.," who sought to control world oil supplies. He appeared as the son of "Jock" Ewing, a reference to the Lodgemaster as deification of fertility gods, if you believe in ickeian stream-of-consciousness investigative techniques.

Even the suspenders of Mork seem to convey masonic imagery to those predisposed to see such things:



(Note the egg, a pagan re-birth symbol, profferred to the onlooker, hinting at the dark dyad and masonry and the occult: "which came first, the chicken or the egg." Not to mention the obvious saurian/reptoid implications. Indeed. indeed!
