Sunday Funday: Happy Mother’s Day Edition

Being a Mother is so easy: (3.5 minutes)

On this Mother’s Day perhaps the best trend I see is the number of women involved in the running of the various levels of government in this country. Having women involved on the right seems to make little difference in their authoritarian leanings, having women involved on the left is truly bringing different perspectives to our national outlook.

President Biden boasts some 45.8% women in cabinet level positions. Hard to ignore half of your cabinet. Let us hope this is only the beginning. 

With women in positions of power we will have people who understand what the policies of the government really mean to a family. About time.
