Happy Birthday Dad!!


I just wanted to let you know how much I love you. Even though I think Mom and you can be a little wacky sometimes, God knew what He was doing when He placed me with you. I couldn't have asked or prayed for a better Dad.

Thank you for taking all of us to the park. I have childhood memories that still make me laugh. I thought you were so awesome when you showed us that using wax paper makes us go faster going down the slides. You knew the importance of children having fun in the sun and it was probably the only time of my life that I had a healthy tan.

Thank you for reading to me and for being a creative teacher. Dr. Seuss is still one of my favorite authors because of you. I know that I probably wouldn't have won some of my Writing Celebration awards in elementary school if it wasn't for you. I'm very thankful that I would rather pick up a book than anything else.

Thank you for taking me to Grandma's house. I have memories of us playing cards surrounded by meats, Dutch cheeses, and lots of chocolates. I learned how to play cards at an early age and was very blessed to know my Grandma. Her stories were some of the funniest stories I have ever heard and have inspired me to tell my children stories at bedtime.

Thank you for always encouraging me to sing. You would turn on the video camera and ask me to sing a song. Even though I didn't sing very well, you made me feel like a star. You were my number one fan, even when I was off pitch.

Thank you for being a Dad I could respect and admire. I think you are very intelligent, excellent with money, creative, fun and kind. You are always very thoughtful in conversation and I always perk up my ears when you have something to say.

Thank you for being an awesome example of Christianity. You show a sincere love for God and He has changed your life. When I think of God's work here on earth, I think of you and how He made you strong enough to overcome an addiction. In all things, to God be the glory.

Thank you for being my Dad and for all of my memories, love, advice and encouragement. Thank you, Daddy.

Man Pants?

Not exactly sure how this video fits with my blog because I don't necessarily want to claim him on this outburst. Plain and simple, it just makes me laugh. Thus, I bestow upon you a high pitched hissy fit starring Glenn Beck. You're welcome.

The Wussification of the American Male: A Story Told By YouTube Videos

I know the idea of "Wussification" of the American male is getting more exposure, just like the "Manification" of the American female. Nothing exposes the Wussification of the American male more than a comparison of pop culture, now and then. There once was a time when men had some respect in pop culture. You think I jest? Watch and see, youngling. However, it should be noted that your odds of getting a non-wussified manly man are greatly increased with conservative men. They are a rare and beautiful breed of men that have somehow survived feminists and pop culture.

Mitt Romney: A Tale of Two Choices

By God, Willard Mitt Romney is a handsome fellow with dashing soap opera-like peppered gray hair. Some of my fellow conservatives had problems with him last election. However, I did not. One of their minor complaints? His change on abortion and whether or not he would truly be pro-life once in office. Our dearly loved Ronald Reagan did the same. I'm thinking it was a comfort that at least he was conflicted on the issue, which can not be said about President Obama. President Obama's record on abortion is consistently anti-fetus. He doesn't want his daughters "punished with a baby" and is spending our tax dollars, in a recession, to fund abortions overseas.

What I like most about Mitt Romney? His super dreamy eyes like Davy Jones... just kidding. No, I like that he seems very competent about the economy. Mitt Romney understands that spending and splurging doesn't get the country out of the recession unlike the current administration. As Frank J. from IMAO wrote, "When Michelle Obama was on Sesame Street, do you think the Count explained to her how spending doesn't reduce the deficit?" Who knows? In the end, Mitt might save us all ...I keed, of course.

A Man Pants FAIL

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is teh FAIL

Best line from the priest, "Many of us are praying that he goes into a more silent mode." But, what I'm wondering... could he take Meghan McCain with him on his quest for silence? Or Perez Hilton? Ahhh... let's be realistic, having Sanford, Meg Meg, and Perez Hilton understand the importance of being silent is a pipe dream, but a lovely one.
