From the lodge at Oxmoor…..another Presidential election is over, Barack Obama has been reelected and whether or not he was your choice, he is our President.
Let us hope the 113th Congress will find a way to work together for the good of our country and future generations. If you read this blog and think, I don’t give a tinker’s damn, then shame on you. If you do give a damn, take time to look up information about the men and women who will hold our country’s future for the next few years in their hearts and hands.
Our great United States of America is a microcosm of the world; a rich stew made of many ethnicities. The membership of our 113th Congress is, I believe, the most diverse that we have ever had. A partial list of who we will seat includes Latinos (Cuban-Americans and Mexican-Americans), women, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, a Hindu member, a Buddhist member and the first openly gay Senator.
Diversity, thy name is America!
Our Government now reflects the people who are the citizens of our country. We should all be very proud of the men and women who have made this commitment to public service and have been chosen to represent us. May they serve to make our country a better homeland. And may God bless each member of our government and God bless the United States of America.
