    The Patriot Post ^ | 09-22-17 | David Limbaugh
    Does the political left — which dominates the mainstream media, Hollywood, academia and the Democratic Party — really believe its ubiquitous charges of racism against conservatives, or are they a sick ploy to discredit, ruin and defeat its political opponents? During President Obama’s tenure, a conservative could hardly oppose Obama on policy grounds without being accused of racism. It didn’t matter that conservatives had fought Hillary Clinton’s health care plan in the ‘90s because they opposed socialized medicine. It didn’t matter that they had opposed Bill Clinton’s tax hikes. Their opposition to Obamacare and Obama’s proposed tax increases had to...

    This post is brought to you by Dockers®. What’s this? Father’s Day is next week. It’s a day to remember dad and tell him thanks for all the things he’s done for you. If you’re a dad, it’s a time to remember the important role you have in your children’s lives.We often celebrate Father’s Day by getting dad a nice gift — a fishing pole, a tie, maybe an awesome power drill. While such a gesture shows your thoughtfulness and will likely be much appreciated by Dad, the most precious gift you can give can’t be wrapped up in...
  • In Arkansas, Women Must Now Get A Man's Permission Before An Abortion

    Konbini ^ | 7/10/2017 | Kimberly B. Johnson
    In Arkansas, women are now required to get permission from men before going through with abortion services. The law is a provision of recently passed bill H.B. 1566 which states that in the matter of a person’s death, family members must all agree on what to do with the deceased person’s body. So, how do women and their bodies play into this at all? Arkansas legislators decided to include aborted fetuses into the Act, meaning both the mother and the father of the fetus must agree on what to do with the fetal remains. This essentially requires a woman to...
  • 'Transphobic'! NBC's Katy Tur Gets Rattled by Transgender Father's Facebook Tirade

    MRC NewBusters ^ | 06/13/2017 | Tim Graham
    Brian Flood of The Wrap reported on Twitter that NBC and MSNBC star Katy Tur is having trouble with her transgender father again. "Hanna Zoey Tur ripped daughter, NBC's Katy Tur, as 'transphobic'" in Facebook message: "My daughter does not support the LGBT community." This is quite a surprise, given the negotiated peace between father and daughter as projected in Sunday's New York Times puff piece by Luisita Lopez Torregrosa. Ironically, although the Times headline was "You Can't Rattle Her," asking Tur about her father obviously rattled her: {..snip..}

    Huffington Post ^ | June 5, 2017 | Carla Herreria
    No barbecue is complete without a dad standing at the grill, flipping burger patties and telling dad jokes. That’s why a group of party planners in Spokane, Washington, put an ad on Craigslist seeking just that. “NEEDED: Generic Father for Backyard BBQ,” reads the ad’s title, which was posted to the volunteer page on the Craigslist site for Spokane. A group of men in their 20s who asked to be identified as “The Boys” will be hosting the barbecue, their representative, Dane Anderson, told HuffPost in an email. At least 50 “boys” will be at the event. As their ad...

    Please pray for my Dad. He's in the ICU with pneumonia and fluid around his hear and lungs. They're going to drain the fluid, but I have no idea how things will go after that. They had him on antibiotics for the pneumonia, and hopefully, they'll continue those. Please, God, let my Dad live out the rest of his long life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

    Vladimir Sanchez spent more than four years in prison for a slew of insurance-fraud charges. He was released on Thursday, but his freedom was short-lived. Sanchez, 45, is back behind bars after his ride home ended with a police chase, a shooting and a school lockdown at St. Michael’s Catholic School in Little Havana. Miami police said it all started on Thursday when Sanchez’s 16-year-old son, Alexander, stole his mother’s 2013 Nissan Altima to pick his father up from jail. The next day, police spotted the car on Northwest 27th Avenue and pulled it over.

    PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – A father at a Phillies game displayed his multitasking skills Thursday. He made a fantastic one-handed catch while holding his daughter in his other arm. The child didn’t even flinch and clearly, the dad didn’t either. The dad even had hot dogs in his hand and managed not to drop those. The foul ball was hit by Toronto Blue Jays’ Kevin Pillar.

    Dad taught me to work hard and long and watch out for details, something I have treasured during my life Character must be sought, taught, and caught but often it is fought! Whatever character I have, I got it from my father who died at age 66. My dad was a highly principled and successful man with a sixth grade education! At this time of year, it is appropriate that I consider how much I owe him. Much of what I am and what I have accomplished is because of him. Dad dropped out of school in the sixth grade...

    Those of us who have shouldered a shotgun a few thousand times in our lives can recall that first time we touched off a 12 gauge, or any gauge for that matter. It reminds us that we didn’t always have the bulk or the muscle memory to handle one. Did it stop any of us from wanting another try, one of our own, or a trip to deer camp with dad? Maybe, its the macho side or just trying to impress Dad. Cheer for a young fella who just got his shoulder popped and in a minute when it quits...

    So, my wife and I just celebrated our one year anniversary, and got each other the best present of all... we're having a baby! She's only 4-6 weeks along at this point, so we haven't told anyone yet. We want to wait about 3 more weeks until the first real checkup. But I can't wait that long to tell someone... anyone who will listen/read! We're going to the OB on 5/3 for a first appointment and to hear the heartbeat for the first time. I'm so excited to be a father. I'm happy we did everything we could to start...
  • Why ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad’ Sound So Similar in So Many Languages: Linguistic Coincidence?

    The Atlantic ^ | 10/16/2015 | JOHN MCWHORTER
    Is there anything inherently “doggy” about the word “dog”? Obviously not—to the French, a dog is a chien, to Russians a sobaka, to Mandarin Chinese-speakers a gǒu. These words have nothing in common, and none seem any more connected to the canine essence than any other. One runs up against that wall with pretty much any word.Except some. The word for “mother” seems often either to be mama or have a nasal sound similar to m, like nana. The word for “father” seems often either to be papa or have a sound similar to p, like b, in it—such that...

My three places of residence—my home, my office, and my mind—were free of clutter and arranged so as to allow me both to make the most of my days and to begin to venture out into intellectual life. Then I became a father.

    [VIDEO AT THE LINK Provided below] What do you do when your child comes home with bad grades? Do you cuddle him (or her)? Or do you get angry and tell them they should do better? Or do you go further than that? Do you punish him by, say, not giving him pocket money or by grounding him for a few days? One father decided to take it a bit further than that. When his son told him he failed his class, he gave his son a sledgehammer, threw his most prized possession (Xbox) in the garden and forced him...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Just 12 hours before police say a man threw his 5-year-old daughter to her death off a Tampa Bay bridge last month, his own attorney called Florida's child abuse hotline, warning that his client was suffering from mental delusions. But the hotline operator didn't refer the call to investigators because she didn't think the child was in danger, according to documents released by Florida child welfare officials Monday. One week earlier, another worried caller told the Department of Children and Families that Jonchuck's daughter Phoebe had been physically abused in the past. But that call also...
