The Dangerous Book for Boys

    My son just turned ten, this, in and of itself, presents it’s own set of challenges. Living in the age of Playstation 4′s, X-Box One’s, and iPad’s is a whole different ballgame altogether. My son is a gamer. Has been since he was about three. For those who don’t know what a gamer is, you need to make sure your AARP dues have been paid. | Read More »

    Why I Could Care Less About College

    There’s a huge problem within the church right now. Correction, there are a lot of problems in the church right now. But the one I’m going to talk about has to do with the warfare over our children.

    Parents line up in spades to arm their children with piano skills, soccer teams, Ivy League feeder preschools, and designer jeans. The obsession to prepare their child for the best future possible is the blinding force behind sign-ups, deadlines, waiting lists, and stress. But the wrong “future” is given the emphasis in this current clash of culture and the Church.

    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

    Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. I got home around 2am, but got to sleep in my own bed. Then got woken up by the kids at 7 . . . and again at 8 and 9 and 10 and finally decided having them lay on top of me and pretend alligators were eating me was enough.I got out of bed at | Read More »

    Of ATMs, Mousetraps and Watches

    “If you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door.” Judging from his comments regarding ATMs and unemployment, President Obama blames the better mousetrap for 400,000 out-of-work cats. Cats who are starving for the lack of mice. Creative destruction is a necessary and vital feature of a healthy and free capitalist economy. Business people intuitively know and embrace it (or | Read More »

    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. You have a lot to | Read More »

    Dreams From MY Father

    (I wrote this about a year ago, but am reposting it in honor of the most important man in my life, even though he’s been gone 12 years, for Father’s Day. So, apologies to the legions of people (and by legions, I mean maybe 10) who have read this already) My father was a genius. He was also an alcoholic. He was many things…..he was | Read More »
