Okay, I’ve been writing now for about 6 months. Almost regularly! I’ve managed to avoid any political commentary, but this too shall pass.
I had a hard time deciding if this should go under Here’s Your Sign, or under Who’s In Charge. Not up for a debate with myself, I put it under both.
I am an American, and proud of it. I love the history of this country, and every thing it stands for.
Sometimes though, there are moments that I’m just down right embarrassed. Like last week, after reading a story carried by CNN.com
Our illustrious leader was visiting good old Cali after the recent school tragedies. During a visit to a local school, he commented he was “saddened and deeply concerned” by the recent school shootings. (Colorado, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania). He added, “Our school children should never fear safety when they enter their classroom.”
To paraphrase Mr Jackie Chan, “Does he understand the words that are coming out of his mouth?”
