Letter from Dubya


We received Rose's Certificate of US Citizenship today.  Her "green card" – which is no longer green nor a card, actually.  Pretty cool.  Now I can start the paperwork for an SSN, Wisconsin Birth Certificate, etc.  Our insurance company will be thrilled!

Along with the certificate was a letter from the president congratulating her for becoming a US Citizen.  Not that she had a lot of choice in the matter.  But I was pleased to know that "Americans are united across the generations by grand and enduring ideals.  The grandest of these is an unfolding promise that everyone belongs, that everyone deserves a  chance, and that no insignificant person was ever born…  And every new citizen, by embracing these ideals, makes our country more, not less, American."

It's a very pleasant letter, I will certainly put it in her scrapbook.  The question is whether or not to juxtapose it with an article about the fence the legislators in this country decided to build to keep some immigrants out.

    Fabulous idea!

    And, as a separate scrapbook, you could continue with that theme of completely contrary statements made by our Commander in Chief on many different topics.

    You could sell it on ebay or to any number of progressive/leftist businesses. Who knows, you may be able to fund your childrens’ education.
