Raising a Democrat


My good friend and fellow Oklahoma Democrat, Jacquelyn Powell passed along to me this anecdote which shows she is raising her son as a good Democrat.

She writes, "As my 8 year old son and I were walking to our car from the University of Central Oklahoma reading clinic today, we saw some litter flying in the wind. Out of the mouth of this sweet boy came, 'What is wrong with people? You can't go buy a new earth in a bag!'
Expanding on his thought made me think about a recent ABC news report on Global Warming, and how the ice glaciers are now melting 50% faster than they were 5 Years ago. Republicans want to use their self coined phrase, 'Climate Change'. What a waste!"

Good for you, Jacquelyn, and keep up the good parenting.
