9 Ways Fathers, On This Fatherís Day, Can Avoid Raising a Barack Obama
Townhall.com ^ | June 15, 2014 | Doug Giles

Posted on 06/15/2014 5:35:44 AM PDT by Kaslin

It’s Father’s Day today and I can’t think of a more important job than raising your kids right. Don’t believe me? Well then, I have two words for you: Bowe and Bergdhal.

As much as some stretch-panted lesbian might try to marginalize the role of fathers with their mullet-headed, misguided, misandristic Weltanschauung, the stats clearly state that when pop is in the house, and he properly doles out TLC, the kids come out as a great asset to the planet instead of selfish jackasses.

And that’s what our country needs: parents raising kids who love God and our country and don’t cost our nation one red cent, but rather add tremendous value to this great experiment in self-governance.

Y’know, sometimes I wonder if Obama had been properly fathered then maybe our country wouldn’t be so embarrassed, in debt and internationally laughed at right now.

Therefore, and herewith, are nine ways you, the young dad, can make certain you don’t raise a kid like el presidente.

1. Make sure your children appreciate this nation, its founding docs and its original intent and not some wet dream Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn had back in the late ‘60s when they were high on acid, Che Guevara and Saul Alinsky. Especially be certain that they love our Armed Forces who protect us and not slice and dice their benefits.

2. Make certain your kids know it’s wrong to lie your butt off to people who have given you their trust. For instance, if you tell people "they can keep their health care plan and their doctors, period!” then mean that, dammit.

3. If in the event your offspring does make mistakes and situations get worse under their care, train your child to own their mistakes instead of blaming George W. Bush for their ham-fisted, ill-thought out blunders.

4. Teach your child that glib speeches read from a teleprompter that are laced with platitudes and horse manure do not replace character, honesty and integrity.

5. Lovingly school your young child that when he gets older, writing two books about yourself, or worse yet, having them ghost-written about oneself, is really, really weird and doesn’t make one a great leader but rather a Little Lord Fauntleroy.

6. Take the time also to train your dear child to throw a baseball properly so he doesn’t look … uh … um … effeminate should he ever be called upon to throw out a first pitch during a baseball game.

7. Father, if you have a son, let him know it’s okay for him to drink out of a straw when he’s like … uh … three but not when he’s the leader of the free world. At least not in public; and if he ever does drink from a straw in public tell him to never look someone of the same sex in the eye while doing so. The same goes for eating a banana.

8. In addition, dads, please instruct your spawn not to frickin’ spy on people. Okay? It’s rude and no one likes it and people will think you’re a paranoid control freak.

9. And finally, teach your young whippersnapper if he is a boy to forego marrying a mean woman who’s ashamed of this nation and wants to police what people eat and don’t eat.

Happy Father’s Day and good luck.

I don’t think I have to worry about that. I am not of a privileged class to even have a shot at putting a child in that position. I have also raised four children that respect God, their nation, and its military. They can’t wait to register to vote. (I will have two new voters in 2016.)

How about: before you take on a wife to be the mother of your children, make sure the prospective grandparents (her parents) aren’t flaming Commies?

The simplest way a man can avoid having sons who turn out badly is not to have sex, ever, with anyone other than his wife. (One and only one wife, not one of several.)

Also, make sure that you ARE there for your kids. Don’t abandon them and make sure you are MARRIED before you get a kid.

Little Lord Fauntleroy objects.

Despite the Cavalier curls, he was a manly little boy with a high regard for truth and love for his country.

If you (the father) are a left wing 1960s radical, that’s hardly an improvement.

Don’t want to raise a collectivist?

Be there for them. Teach them. Tell them stories at bedtime. Take them to church and teach them about God at home. Love them. Hug them. Listen to them. Watch them. Know everything about them. Love their mother with a passion and stay with her. Be loyal. Tell them no. Spank the slobbers out of them when they need it. Laugh with them. Take them shooting. Make stuff in the shop with them. Warn them about the follies of foolish living, which includes collectivism. Show them what fools look like and what wise people look like.

I got a Fathers' Day card from my daughter and she said thanks for teaching her how to fix her car if she ever broke down. She knew more about cars than most college kids when she went to TAMU. She had the hood up on her car one weekend before heading home and someone asked her if she had problems. She said "No, just checking it for the drive home".

She can use any power tool in the garage and loves doing home improvements. Her husband is amazed at her skills when it comes to using tools. She is also a gardening nut. Loves to play in the garden and get fresh veggies. It's not just the sons you raise properly, it is daughters as well.

When mine were very little, one Christmas,I had both children split their gifts in half.They asked why and I told them democraps want half to give away to somebody else.That fixed it right there.We do find kids that don’t have much and set them up with pretty good bicycles that my kids have out grown.

My kids learned a lesson on socialism at an early age.
Familiar with the practice of “grade norming”?
A kid making all A’s has to give up some of their grades to a kid making C’s to make things fair. Both of my A kids said hell no to that. They had worked for those A’s and the C kid didn’t.

End of the lesson.

My husband doesn’t do much on nature, hunting, or gardening skills; he’s a computer nerd. But he knows every moment with your kids is a teachable moment, and he uses just about all of them. He coaches the kids’ robotics team, and what comes across is that he loves it, loves the kids, and wants to encourage them to think for themselves, solve problems, and learn to work together towards a tangible goal.

He leads by example on matters of faith, prayer and morality. Our kids are proudly religious, standing out at their public schools, and attracting good friends because of it. Our family eats dinner together every night and discusses current events, history, science, and things the kids bring up.

I moved toward conservatism from my effort to raise the kids to be like my husband. So, I guess what’s good for the kids is good for me too.

If Obama had been properly fathered, he never would have been elected!

Nothing the matter with drinking straws . . . or chewing gum . . . it's a question of knowing when things are a little bit too formal for them.

You don't drink through a straw at a white-tablecloth restaurant . . . and you don't chew gum at the D-Day Memorial.
