Declaring that you’re moving to Canada to avoid Obamacare is like saying, “I’m moving to Brooklyn to avoid hipsters!”
Screw the freezing ice and wind, I’m moving to Antarctica.

Some of the photographs I post are not my own, and they are copyrighted by their respective photographers. I will cite and source every photograph I find that isn't mine. This isn't a commercial/profit blog, I do not make any money from this blog. I post photographs I like and am inspired by to show to my followers, in the hopes that they like them and are inspired by them as well. I do not wish to profit or gain from posting others' works.
No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “religious freedom.” If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.

So it is with America. Each time I look at that flag, I’m reminded that our destiny is stitched together like those fifty stars and those thirteen stripes. No one built this country on their own. This Nation is great because we built it together. This Nation is great because we worked as a team. This Nation is great because we get each other’s backs. And if we hold fast to that truth, in this moment of trial, there is no challenge too great; no mission too hard. As long as we’re joined in common purpose, as long as we maintain our common resolve, our journey moves forward, our future is hopeful, and the state of our Union will always be strong.
Thank you, God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America.
Those of us who’ve been sent here to serve can learn from the service of our troops. When you put on that uniform, it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white; Asian or Latino or Native American; conservative or liberal; rich or poor; gay or straight. When you’re marching into battle, you look out for the person next to you, or the mission fails. When you’re in the thick of the fight, you rise or fall as one unit, serving one Nation, leaving no one behind.
