Millions of people all over the world have been inspired by President Obama. Americans are pulling together as never before.
We can learn from the past. We’ve shared hard times before. This picture was taken back when President Jerry Ford was encoraging us to wear “Whip Inflation Now” (WIN) buttons. The cat’s name is Dragon. Back in the spring of 1974, he made national headlines when he decided to forego expensive meat-based cat food in favor of plain saltine crackers. Sure, he was just one cat, but he was prepared to take a stand against high cat food prices.
President Obama is a lot smarter than Jerry Ford. Mr. Obama is not going to ask us to wear silly buttons. He may, however, ask us all to spend a few years eating saltine crackers. And we’ll all say, “Sure, Mr. President, if it helps to pay for corporate tax cuts!”
