JANUARY 2011 – in the news: “Passports of all US citizens will no longer bear the words Mother or Father. They will be replaced with Parent #1 and Parent #2.”
…..and instantly I wondered if Doctor Seuss would ask: “Parent One, or Parent Two…in all the World…which one are you?”
I beg Dr. Seuss’s forgiveness, in advance, for my “hatchet” job.
“Is that your Passport in your hand?
Is that it there ol’ Sam-I-Am?”
“I carry it with me,
for the World to see.
I keep it close by,
it keeps me free.”
“Did you see the naming plan?
Did you see it Sam-I-Am?”
“Yes I saw the Passport scam
eliminate gender-data is the plan.”
“Do you like the naming plan?
Do you like it Sam-I-Am?”
“I don’t like it,
it’s not for me.
Setting a hierarchy
that shouldn’t be.”
“Don’t you like the naming plan?
Don’t you like it Sam-I-Am?”
“Who becomes the number one?
Who’s the one that’s to be shun?
I don’t want to be the one,
being shunned is not so fun?”
“You don’t like the naming plan?
You don’t like it Sam-I-Am.”
“I don’t like the naming plan.
I don’t like the gender ban.
I don’t like the Passport scam.
No, I don’t like the naming plan.”
“So you think it’s just a scam,
do you think this Sam-I-Am?”
“I think it’s a true slight of hand,
played by the members of the band,
also know as the Obama clan,
and they definitely have a plan.”
“So yes, I think it’s just a scam,
Yes I do,” says Sam-I-Am.

…”People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” –Albert Einstein

In this single volume, bestselling author and physicist Stephen Hawking has assembled highlights of Einstein’s groundbreaking scientific works. Collected within is Einstein’s own writings on the Theory of Relativity, as well as his reflections on politics, religion, and the ultimate significance of his scientific discoveries
