The federal government once again has considered legislating against cartoon characters . Somehow the fine men and women of congress have made a connection between Captain Crunch and children overeating…and listening to Justin Beiber causes acne…and listening to Barbra Streisand causes arthritis. Excuse me while I delete my Babs and download some Beebs.

Obama’s first term is headed toward the final lap. What is remarkable is how little he has been able to get done while in the White House. He was elected with great hopes of change. He entered office with a list of promises to fix what was broken. Unfortunately the list has not gotten shorter. The unpopular war continues and the bad economy gets worse. The main reason he has failed is that he cannot get the congress to back him on his agenda. When it comes to congress Obama is like the mom who wants to be the Popular Mom and it hasn’t been working. Maybe he should be more like the Tiger Mom.
I know that it is a children’s book only a few dozen pages and illustrated, but in these times when the country is struggling with massive unemployment, a scary weak economy, rising health costs, rising education costs, not to mention a war half way around the world still claiming the lives of our sons and daughters couldn’t you have waited until you finished your job before you retired to the typewriter?
Please turn around and look out your window.
