Today we remember that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In order to help my readers in prioritizing the significance of the event, I’ve chosen a few appropriate photos which, in addition to the national campaign, I hope will also serve as a reminder of a friend whom we all miss dearly.
Is it “who” or “whom” in that context? I never can remember.
At any rate, on with the post.
This being Rule 5 Saturday, and pink being the color chosen for Save the Tata’s Month, this two part theme will be of a very pinkish hue.

As usual, some of these embiggin with near life-size results.
We pause for a little Rule 5 for the ladies:

Mike Pence’s proposed Balanced Budget Amendment that limits government spending to 20% of the GDP. I have also endorsed Rep. Todd Tiahrt’s bill to place a moratorium on all federal earmarks…
When I think about education, I consider two very important factors. The first is that our children are our most precious treasures as well as the greatest â€œnatural resourceâ€ that America has. Second, competition breeds excellence in every area of life, including education.
Thatâ€™s why I strongly support the idea of school choice. Failing schools shouldnâ€™t be rewarded with a locked-in clientele, and children suffering in underperforming schools shouldnâ€™t be relegated to receiving a substandard education simply because of where they live…
…how about lowering the corporate tax rate which is currently the second highest in the world? That would make American companies more competitive internationally and provide business owners with the capital they need to expand and hire more workers.
And while we’re at it, how about lowering the income tax rates for ALL Americans so we have more disposable income to better care for our families and better fuel the economy. The bottom line is that we all work hard for our money and as such, we should all be able to keep more of it…
