Obama's a lefty....

No bashing or being mean here. My daughter is a lefty! I was just wondering how many US presidents were. Yes I KNOW it's completely unimportant, more of a trivia thing! Anyone know?

  • And check out the numbers... 3 in a row in recent times, and none of the first 19 presidencies. Interesting.

    Back then, being left handed was considered evil and a mark of the devil. If you naturally wrote lefty, you were force to use your right hand, and it was kept a dark family secret.

  • Doesn't mean he's in his right mind,which he most certainly isn't! Gives all us lefties a bad name.

    LOL..My mom is a lafty and she was in catholic schol in the 50's , she was beaten with a ruler more than one time over this and they forced her for awhile to write with her right hand, Then my mom-mom went to the school and told the nun, you can smack her if she does something wrong but if you ever smack her again for writing with her left hand, so help my God I will punch you! LOL


    So in retaliation the nun let my mom write with her left hand but still made her slant her paper as if she were writing with her right...NUNS!! LOL


    My dad and aunt are all also lefties, none of their kids are and after 7 grand kids , all righties, my mom finally got her lefty, my 3 year old son seems to be a lefty!! They are so happy!!
