Why Do We Bicker So Much? – PLEASE SHARE

BECAUSE WE CAN

Without fear that stormtroopers will appear at our doorstep in the evening

Without having to look over our backs

Without “disappearing” into the night.

BECAUSE WE HAVE A CONSTITUTION THAT SAYS WE CAN – THINK ABOUT THAT

On this 21st day of 2013, we as a nation give our best wishes to the President as he starts his second term and hope that he will lead with strength,  wisdom, intellect, compassion, and magnanimity..

If This Is True …

Ancestry.com, the online genealogy search site conducted a recent analysis and came up with a startling discovery.

It seems that a certain John Punch was the first indentured servant (or slave) in Colonial America to come from the African continent; he was our fledgling country’s first African slave.  His blood line courses through American history like so many of our early settler’s (voluntary and not) life lines did.  Just like so many tributaries that run through the countryside eventually flow into the mighty Mississippi.  Eventually, John Punch’s African genes mixed with Irish genes that came from that Emerald Isle.

John Punch’s blood then ran in the veins of a vivacious young college student who met and married a graduate student from Kenya.  That marriage brought forth a child of mixed racial history who grew up and eventually became the first President of the United States of America: Barrack Obama.

So that mighty river that flowed from the first African slave to be brought to our shores now flows through our President.  This is the Alpha and Omega of the African struggle in our country.

I think that is mighty cool.

Who is More Important? John McCain or the American Voter?

When Mitt Romney wanted to be the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, he willingly showed twenty tears of tax returns to John McCain, the Republican nominee for president.

Now that he is running for President of the United States of America, Mitt will not show American voters more than two years worth of tax returns — full stop.

Who is more important? John McCain or the American Voter? Being elected Vice President or President?

We know Mitt’s answer.
