Oaks and Acorns

All three of our children attended the same elementary school at which each entering child received a designated mascot name: you were either an Oak or an Acorn. The students donned their Oak or Acorn brand proudly throughout their 6 years at school. Annual games were played with one team taking on the other. Skits at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Grandparents’ Day and the End of the Year matched one group against the other. It was fun, light-hearted, spirited and lasting. My adult children still own several of the T-shirts from those days and whenever they happen upon old alum the memory of the Oak versus Acorn competition reverberates in a happy way.
The lesson of the elementary school is that oaks and acorns are different but very much the same. The acorn is a product of the oak tree and, if things work according to nature, the acorn will become an oak. However, it takes a great deal of effort for an acorn to become a mighty oak.
ACORN is a product of the furthest left wing of the democrat party. $1.5 million dollars of our taxes have funded them this year. This is nothing. One of your congressmen has probably spent that on dinner tonight. We’ve got to get to the OAKS and cut them down. They have made your U.S. dollar worth about 3 cents. They are all democrats – and republicans. Get them all gone and plant a new grove. No more ACORNS. Let’s grow Truth and Responsibility.
