Do people who work with their hands
learn sign language faster
than a new spoken language?

In America people who work with their hands
are placed on lower rungs
of society’s ladder.

Jesus is the Christian Savior
and he was a carpenter—
why don’t Christians elect more carpenters to public office?

A real carpenter, not a contractor.
Or better yet a plumber
since there is so much shit to send to treatment plants.

This assumes treatment plants function properly
which no politician can make happen
since they are mostly lawyers and not good with their hands.
