Parenting – You’re doing it wrong

While there are certainly enough bits and bytes being burned on the happenings in Boston to keep the inter-tube flooded for a good long while there’s something that came across my radar that – I’m taking a dim view of, maybe I am over reacting.

This is a picture supposedly from the Boston area during the man hunt for the so called Marathon Bombers.

fb Martial Law

Okay in the interest of full disclosure here – It came from a conservative group I  ‘liked’ at one point on FB. So I see their updates.

The whole meme behind the picture is one of like in other posts here, concerns of the actions in Boston during the manhunt of an emerging police state. They’re valid concerns, I have my own views on that particularly prickly  thorn bush – but I’m not really going to delve into it in this post.

What immediately popped into my head when this crossed that radar was not some concern about the “police state” in America – It was more of primal level – the level of a father.

As soon as it popped up the first thing I said was – “What.The.Fuck.Over”.

Look at this picture and tell me – what is this person taking the picture – I am assuming due to downward angle of the lens’s field of view that it is an adult. Possibly this Child’s Parent. What in the flying FUCK is this mouth breathing moron thinking here?

Hey you, photo taking intestine filler for brains. Yeah You, com’er a second…. let me explain something to you…..

– Your (assuming here) fucking 10-12 year old daughter is standing in front of a plate glass window.

– During full scale police / Para- Military Operations.

– There are people out there running around with fully automatic weapons, and a terrorist considered “armed and extremely dangerous” who has already taken innocents life, set off two bombs, and a score of others explosive devices around Boston.

Now tell me short bus – Do I need ask you ? What could POSSIBLY go wrong in this situation?!?!?

Do you not see an inheritable danger of allowing your young daughter to stand in front of a plate glass window during all of this? No? Well gee, You truly ARE a  special kind of fucking stupid aren’t you?! Here’s your sign:



Given the same situation I am quite confident my kids would have been no where and I mean NO fucking where in the area of a plate glass window over looking the street – in fact I probably would have made every effort humanly possible to egress the entire area until such times as it was a little less of a hot zone.

To me, that’s just plain common damn sense. Failing that, I would have had them somewhere as far away with as many fucking walls as possible between that front wall and them as possible. With me armed to the teeth sitting right with them playing a marathon session of Monopoly. Paranoid? Too Much time doing the Anti Terror training crap I have to? Maybe.

As I post this I just keep getting more irritated with it. Who the fuck allows their kid to do this? Are fucking parents so god damn fucking stupid these days they cannot put a little common sense in front of their PATHETIC  primal urge to impress somebody – anybody!11!!Eleventy!!  On god damn Facebook with their latest fucking cell phone inst-a -gram and Twitter bullshit?

I really WOULD love to meet this kids parent that took that picture – I would. I don’t care if they are Conservative, Libertarian, full on blown Liberal, or a little Oompa god damn Loommpa from the Wonka Chocolate Factory…just so I could look at them and say – “you sir,  (or ma’am as the case may be) – are a full on fucking mouth breathing  protruding brow retard, I pity your child”.

Maybe some of you can come up with a Caption for it – hence the tag of “Caption THIS” for the post – my Post title is the best I could come up with and not start a bout of Touretetts syndrome style cursing –  have at it.

Snarl, I’m going to take the opposite view because I think this is what the father would be saying: “Daughter, I want you to take a good, long hard look at this and remember, always remember…this is what tyranny looks like and I don’t want you to ever forget it.” The first step in defeating tyranny is seeing it up… Read more »

Not to rain on your parade, but that house is about 1 mile from where the future occupant of Old Sparky is located. We also don’t have a time stamp. This might have been taken long after the police had cleared this area in their search. (Judging from the light levels and what the weather was like the other day,… Read more »

My reaction was the same as Light’s … “take a good long look at this, Sweetie … THIS is why your Mom and me are trying to move away from here, and why we get so upset about that ‘pliticle’ stuff.”

Dude, great job :em01: Now please for love of all that is Good and Holy get an outdoor hobby :em06:

April 21, 2013 13:43

The photograph is interesting from another perspective: The flowers facing inside are easy to see. The back of the hair of the girl is easy to see. In order for the flowers and hair to be visible (while away from the outdoor light source) the picture had to be taken with a flash, making a nice visible momentary target for… Read more »

LC IB CiSSnarl5.7 Imperial Foreign War Correspondant @ #: Well, from a tactical standpoint there is at least 100m of clear field of fire so the risk of a planted IED is minimal. As for a thrown device it a) would have minimal explosive power and b) it would be against the armored threat. We can’t see below the window… Read more »

Possible Captions:
“Gee Daddy, didn’t we live in the United States yesterday?”


“Daddy, are they chasing Godzilla or one criminal?”

“Daddy, will it be like this when they take us to the camps?”

“Daddy, when did the Constitution actually mean something?”

An Urgent message from the left wing media: Members are frantically combing through the suspects’ belongings to remove any Obama campaign paraphernalia and searching for pictures of Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul or anything that commemorates George Bush. We swore to protect Obama’s fictitious image and to twist all facts to his political advantage. Therefore, if those pictures… Read more »

I’m with Snarl and Light (post #1) on this. If I was stuck there at the time I would bunker up in a part of the house where no one looking in could see us. This is because of the danger posed by a bunch of trigger happy jackboots who could at any time see someone and start panic firing… Read more »

Ciss, I have to agree with the others. First thing I thought of was; Honey, this is the face or tyranny. All this excess of force for one 19 year old loser. Had he jumped into my yard he would have been either shot or held at gunpoint until the authorities arrived. And as it turned out it was not… Read more »

Actually, being the hardcore, pragmatic, logical type, when I saw this photo, I was stunned. Something about it broke my hard, black heart. Then it hit me:

“Loss of Innocence”

Now I’m fuckin’ depressed. And some kinda shit got in my eyes. Only in America, right?

There is another picture out there of those same two trucks, with about 20 Goons police types hanging off them.
“Yeah, we all look so cool, carrying all these guns and hanging on to the sides of the trucks, rather then riding inside.”
