Unusual obituary becomes internet sensation (take THAT, you Democrats!)
The Mail Online (UK) ^ | 14APR12 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 04/14/2012 11:01:49 AM PDT by WayneM

He enjoyed 'booze, guns, cars and younger women until the day he died' An outrageously unrepentant obituary has caused a wry smile to emerge on many people's faces across the United States. Penned before his death, Michael ‘Flathead’ Blanchard's memoriam makes clear that he held no truck for water-carriers or time wasters. --------

Blanchard, Michael "Flathead" 1944 ~ 2012 A Celebration of the life of Michael "Flathead" Blanchard will be held on April 14th, 3 pm 8160 Rosemary St, Commerce City. Weary of reading obituaries noting someone's courageous battle with death, Mike wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors' orders and raising hell for more than six decades. He enjoyed booze, guns, cars and younger women until the day he died. Mike was born July 1944 in Colorado to Clyde and Ethel Blanchard. A community activist, he is noted for saving the Dr. Justina Ford house from demolition and defending those who could not defend themselves. He was a Republican delegate, life member of the NRA, founder and President of the Dead Cats MC. He loved music. Mike was preceded in death by Clyde and Ethel Blanchard, survived by his beloved sons Mike and Chopper, former wife Jane Transue, brother Stephen Blanchard (Susan), Uncle Don and Aunt Cynthia Blanchard(his favorite); Uncle Dill and Aunt Dot, cousins and nephews, Baba Yaga can kiss his butt. So many of his childhood friends that weren't killed in Vietnam went on to become criminals, prostitutes and/or Democrats. He asks that you stop by and re-tell the stories he can no longer tell. As the Celebration will contain Adult material we respectfully ask that no children under 18 attend.

No.
Perfect is farther down the article when they tell you that Mike is his "human son" and chopper is a cat.

He was a Community Activist, not a Community Organizer.

A Community Activist respects and preserves our History, a Community Organizer despises and seeks to change our History.

Kudos, sir. RIP.

Thank you for your service and for the smile today.

Remembering a time when you could stop dead to watch stags fighting over a doe in the middle of a moonlit night on an interstate in Wyoming, and the next old boy to come along in a few minutes would stop and ask if you needed help.

We who have known freedom will pass it on.
