Father’s Day Optimism on Politics

    Every Father’s Day, I remember one distinct childhood memory that has guided me for the rest of my life. I was complaining about something trivial. My mom, stopping me, asked me one of the most memorable questions I have ever been asked. “Think about your dad,” she said. “Have you ever heard him complain about anything?” I was stunned. I could not call to mind | Read More »

    “America Calls 911 — All Fathers to the Rescue!”

    “Hello, this is dispatch. What is your emergency?”  ”American families… They are — well, just please hurry,” the voice said. “We need all dads to the rescue!” — From “DAD, The Man Who Lied to Save the Planet”                 American culture has decayed dramatically since my days of boyhood excitement growing up in the hills and fields of a | Read More »

    Happy Father’s Day

    appy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. I got home around 2am, but got to sleep in my own bed.

    Fatherhood – The Noble Calling.

    In this time of ever more dangerous geopolitical situations around the world and with Islamo-fascists on the march, here at home we have an out of control US Government. A government under the control of Neo-Marxist ideologues that are attempting to steal my children’s future. That’s made it personal. As we used to say in the Marine Corps, stand by.
