Rafter Weighs in on President’s Day

Monday, February 15th, 2010

ok hi asthmatic kitty friends! it’s rafter, and i wanted to share an appreciation today, on president’s day! usually i’m not much one for appreciating presidents or presidency, but i have something to appreciate.  in our very recent past, we rocked SLAVERY. like owning other people, kidnapped africans, split up families, tortured and maimed and effin’ effed with people in the most cruel and disrespectable ways, serious bad bad badness. and now, not much more than a tortoise’s life later, the highest designation most powerful (as far as i can tell) office in our country USA is held by someone with african roots.  and michelle, our FIRST LADY even has south carolina slavery in her ancestry.  SO – not that things aren’t just wack, all over.  not that we aren’t a vile, cruel and bestial race of animals.  not that we’re not poisoning our own wells every day in all sorts of ways. but good job USA for getting from there to here, wherever here is, and wherever we’re headed.  that’s my presidents day appreciation! i hope in another 150 years we can look back at today and see just how much further again we’ve come. fingers x’d. the future is up to us, AK family :)
