An analogy is supposed to be something like a simile or metaphor where one item relates to another in some way or is similar to the other in some way. It's not just some random rambling that happens to suit your pet political agenda.
Sand in an engine will not slow it down (like a governor or extra cargo), it will destroy it.
The sand remark was pretty retarded really.
