The President Speaks….And A Tweet Or Two

Some run their mouths, while others are proactive. #ThanksObama

Bravo, sir!

A Tweet Or Two

****

****

****

****

Racism at the root of a government policy

****

****

****

****

President Obama once again taking action while Congress abdicates its responsibilities and takes a paycheck

****

****

“And this is the real news: Everyone is entitled to it—no matter the size of your workplace, no matter whether you have a full-time or part-time position. As soon as you’ve been an employee for at least six months, this time is yours (and your partner’s) to take. Better yet, the new law ensures that your job will be there when you get back. Until now, only workers who have met certain requirements at companies that employ more than 50 people have been given that protection. Thanks to this bill, that’s one less crisis for new moms and dads to worry about.”

****

Legalize it, sure, but if we do not address the huge racial disparities at the heart of the matter, the barrier between those who are allowed to open up pot shops and profit 1000% and those who are arrested for using the same drug that their white counterparts freely use, the issue is pretty much moot
