Given the recent intensity within our political discourse, I wanted to share this cartoon. I think its funny above all else, and I am on the side of Government for the people, to help the people, to create a solid base for all to propel themselves into society – not a handout but equal opportunity.
Yesterday I was running on a treadmill wearing an Obama T shirt, and another individual across the room was giving me the evil eye. He proceeded to turn the television to CMT and crank it way up. I smiled and continued to run, thinking about how far we’ve come, and how far some have went backwards- holding on to the remnants of inequality, and grasping for air to be saved from progression.
