One of the things I decided when starting this blog was that I was going to do my level best to avoid political posts as much as possible. While I do have some very strong opinions just like everyone else, I also have friends and family who have opposing views. I could go on my soapbox and make my strong opinions known but I have to wonder what the point would be. I would gain atta girls from some, and alienate others.In the process I would have accomplished nothing worthwhile. Face it. No one is going to change their mind because of anything I say. And so it is I am finding myself sitting on my hands, biting my tongue, taking a deep breath, reminding myself to "just say no"
On that note, there is a little something that has occurred to me in recent months. "Just for fun", I did a search and was actually rather surprised to find what I was searching for so easily. "Just for fun", I am inviting you to visit this site and take a little peek into history. It's not a long trip into history. The journey begins with our current president and proceeds backwards into time through 6 Presidents who have preceded him in serving our nation. There is actually very little reading involved, and you have the option of skipping the reading portion all together if you choose. Just look at the pictures..
When you are finished browsing through the pictorial history lesson, I would ask you to do one more thing. Go to most any news site, or just open a current newspaper that may be laying around the house. I'm guessing finding photos of each of the current Presidential candidates will be less than challenging. Take a good look at each of them, and one at a time, imagine what they would look like after 4 then 8 years in the Oval Office.
Remember, it's "just for fun"
