If you can reach the set goal

07/14/2015

Then, by all means, go for it. So far, none have. If you can do what needs to be done, then do it. Perfectly fair, no special consideration, this is the bar you must reach. Why is that so hard to understand?

    Eve is a woman for a reason and Adam is a man for a reason but not for the same reasons.

    Precisely.

    Even a life long Roosevelt Democrat of my acquaintance had a saying: “One man is as good as another IF he is.”

    That’s an example of simple, basic reality.

    In a more complicated way – Equality of opportunity and outcome are different things. Only a truly deranged Liberal could imagine that women, on average, smaller and weaker than men, could do as well as men on a battlefield. When great strength and endurance are needed, most women can’t deal with it.

    Many years ago, I took the physical agility (fitness) test for the local Sheriff. I passed, as did about 80% of the male applicants. There were also 6 or 8 women being tested on the same course and working under the same time limits. Some of them were definitely well muscled and had obviously been preparing for the test. Not a single one of the women being tested that day could complete the course within the allotted time.

    No one held any of the women back in any way. They just couldn’t physically deal with it.

    Reality is not negotiable.

    Will you all forgive me or applaud me, for really do not care, but you better forget and erase me!

    “Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr

    Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual – a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.

    For millions of Muslims, the morning of Eid is marked with the call to prayer echoing through cities and towns across the globe. Millions of people head to local mosques for special Eid prayers followed by festive gatherings, gift exchanges, and feasts among friends, neighbors and families. The diversity of traditions paint the vibrant images we see from around the world capturing the spirit and excitement of Eid – colorful dresses or white garments decorating the masses of people standing in lines for prayer, lanterns and ornaments lighting up bazaars and neighborhoods, intricate henna designs painted on hands of young girls and women, and an abundance of delectable foods and aromatic cuisines.

    As Muslim Americans celebrate Eid across America, the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs. This past year New York City Public Schools announced adding Eid to their official school calendars alongside Christmas, Hanukkah and other holidays – an acknowledgement of the great diversity and inclusiveness that adds to the richness of our nation. During this year’s White House Iftar, I had the opportunity to meet inspiring young Muslim Americans who are leading efforts for greater understanding and unity across diverse communities. Following the Iftar, one of the young attendees helped spearhead an effort that raised more than $75,000 for the churches burned in the wake of the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Americans of all faiths and beliefs must stand together to protect our democracy and strengthen our country as a whole.

    Michelle and I hope today brings joy to all of your homes, both here in the U.S. and around the world. From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!”

    Hold up two fingers on each hand. How many fingers are you holding up?
