President's daugther Jenna was cited for alcohol possession by a minor, with a 200 fine. Last month her boyfriend was picked up for alcohol intoxication and jailed. He said that he was Jenna's boyfriend, later a black Suburaban with Virgina plates came to station, bailing he out. I also understand that President Bush was ticketed for DUI, which was "hushed" during the presidental campaign.
The example of his daughter and her boyfriend breaking the law is NOT a good example for America's youth. I have a problem with young people drinking, further the "light" fine given to Jenna sends a forceful negative message to our youths. Her father has not made a statement about his daughter's actions.
For those posters who "think" that itnis equal in America....well think again. If these were black youths, they would be in a lot of trouble. Especially the male, he might even be dead. Further, if their parents were the head of the nation, well...I believe the comment would go something like this. "If the President can not keep his daughter and her friends from BREAKING the law, what makes us think that he can maintain, uphold the laws of this country. Get him out of office." What are your thoughts? Do you think that the chickens are coming home to roost?
In Love and Light, Brenda

You sound bitter. Is there a deeper issue?

No, I am not bitter. Perhaps you're reading a deeper issue into my post.
