Chris,
I guess none of us or our kids are going to be applying for any White House positions anytime soon! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

It shows how much more work to we have to do to educate people about allergies. Maybe it should mean that we should start an the top and work down. President Bush is just like me and many others...I didn't even know about peanut allergies. And when my friend told me about her son having a bad reaction I still didn't understand until my daughter's allergy. Until I educated myself somewhat I just didn't get it.

BENSMOM-
If the pb issue makes you dislike Bush even more, you must despise Jimmy Carter - a peanut farmer! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] And also one of the greatest humanitarians the world has ever seen! Seriously though, I did wince a little when I learned that Bush was a peanut butter fanatic, but then I thought, what difference will it make - people aren't going to start eating more p.b. because of him...the election proved he's not THAT popular. As strong as opinions remain, in fact, some people may even STOP eating it because of him! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

well, knowing he is such a peanut butter fanatic just gives me ONE MORE EXCUSE not to have to shake his hand if I am ever face to face with him!
seriously though, jimmy carter was a peanut farmer, MOST people like peanuts/peanut butter, it doesn't scare them silly like it does us. I used to love it too!

actually the real issue is whether, if advised of a white house employees allergy to peanuts, he would ask that the jars be removed. hmmmmm.

OK, I have nothing against Jimmy Carter. I just don't like Bush, but will not get too deep into my political feelings. I am confident that if someone had an allergy, he would be accomadating. I have thought about sending him a letter or something to educate him, but I just don't like the guy and don't feel like doing it!

It doesn't matter what your personal feelings are toward President Bush, he and many, many others need to be educated. It's really sad if you only want to educate people you like.

supermom, very good point. I'll use my other excuse then--I'm too lazy. I educate people my son comes in contact with. There are a lot of things I feel strongly about, but when it comes right down to it, I am not much of an activist.
