Happy Father’s Day!

In which we get to congratulate ourself as well as any and all other fathers who might be reading this.

You know, there are times when we, watching the foul mess that a once free nation is turning into and knowing, without a reasonable doubt, where it all will and, indeed, must end, wonder if we did the Heirs any favors.

But then we realize that we’re being ridiculous. If this nation is ever to become anything even resembling the free, prosperous city on a hill that it used to be, then we’ll need a future as well as a present, and our children are the future. Without them, there really would be little if any reason to put up a fight at all. Also, they are the best thing that has ever happened to this Grumpy Old Imperial Totalitarian and every day I spend with them is a present from above.

And no matter what, it could be worse. We could be living in the Obamunist Utopia of Shitcago (h/t Director Blue):

Seven people were killed and at least 30 others were shot in violence that plagued Chicago over Father’s Day weekend.

Six of the fatalities and 11 other shootings occurred overnight Saturday leading into Father’s Day, including the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy.

On the Southwest Side, five people were shot, one fatally, in two shootings in the Little Village neighborhood.

Ahem, Shitcago: Celebrating Father’s Day Weekend?

YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!

If only they had some “Common Sense Gun Control Laws™” in effect, none of this would have happ…

Wait, what?

Oh. Nevermind then.

Thatisall.

    A happy fathers day to you Misha.

    My wife and have no children. I lost my father a year ago this month. My wife lost her 11 years ago. We hope that your children will have you around, annoying the hell out of them, for many decades to come.

    For many in Shitago Fathers day is the most confusing holiday.

    It’s not just Chicago. New York City, that bastion of gun control advocacy, has had its share of similar weekends lately.

    Happy Father’s Day, to all the Rottie Dads 😀

    Shitcago, aptly named that way by an old Scots friend some 40 years ago (and maybe it was not his accent), and it you look at the south side, where maybe 3 children in 10 have a father at home… it’s not the guns, stupid, it’s the lack of morals and respect for others.

    Is it unkind to say that hizzoner Mayor Tiny Dancer Emmanuel (and a debauched commie brother) has all his chickens coming home to roost? I agree with Aggie, any large metropolitan center controlled by the Donks for any stretch of time has the same pathology and in the case of Kalifonia, pretty much the whole coastal strip from San Diego to San Fran (oh kiss me Pablo) cisco…. When we reach the SHTF time, those are going to be the implosion and then zombie exodus sites.

    Happy Fathers Day Misha, having met the Heirs I do not doubt that you had an Interesting Day! My youngest child being 40 (What you guys thought the Old part was humor) I got the day full of high shrill ear-bursting screams from the Grand-Kids over their speaker phones!

    It IS the little things that make life worthwhile!

    Oh Yeah, I still have to make that drive out there to deliver their heirloom shotguns! Every bit helps when SHTF! :em05:

    I haven’t heard any of that. Although this happened down the street from me, at my station.

    I’m looking for video of it to put to Patsy Cline’s “I Fall To Pieces” :mrgreen:

    Any male member of the species Homo Sapiens can become a father, and too often these days, this describes reality. To me, this day is and has always been about the men who make being a father mean something extraordinary. Men, no doubt like those who write and read here, who understand and serve the life-altering responsibilities that come with being a father. As such a father these days, there is much to worry about, and deep frustration to endure at the realization that the lives of those who follow us appear very likely to be much harder than our own.

    Take heart, Rottie Dads. In this era, by one measure, fathers today are at least as important as they perhaps have ever been in our nation’s history. Raise your young ones to respect truth and liberty and to reject the statists and their collective ideology of fear, envy and shared mediocrity. Teach them how to think for themselves, and the habits of mind that are essential to individual competence and achievement. Pass along the character-building ideas we were taught by the Dads in our lives. Keep the lantern lit, so that when the time comes to rebuild, our sons and daughters will know the path and possess the strength to walk it, and we will have done what we must to ensure the spirit of freedom is not broken on our watch.

    Happy Father’s Day, all y’all!

    And just for laughs, or a chortle, here’s some startling news:

    “8.4 Million New Yorkers Suddenly Realize New York City A Horrible Place to Live”

    Other incidents that prompted citizens to pick up and leave included the sight of garbage bags stacked 5 feet high on the sidewalk; the realization that being alone among millions of anonymous people is actually quite horrifying; a blaring siren that droned on and fucking on; muddy, refuse-filled puddles that have inexplicably not dried in three years; the thought of growing into a person whose meanness and cynicism is cloaked in a kind of holier-than-thou brand of sarcasm that the rest of the world finds nauseating; and all the goddamn people.

    In addition, 3 million New Yorkers reportedly left the city because they realized the phrase “Only in New York” is actually just a defense mechanism used to convince themselves that seeing a naked man take a shit on a park bench is somehow endearing, or part of some shared cultural experience.

    “I was sitting on my stoop, drinking coffee, and out of nowhere this crazy-looking woman just starts screaming, ‘I am inside all of you,’ over and over,” Bronx resident Sarah Perez, 37, said. “Then, we both had this moment where we looked at each other and realized, okay, we have to get out of here.”

    Thought for the Day

    “The illusion of freedom [in America] will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” –FRANK ZAPPA

    Pass it on to your leftoid friends….

    OT but funny and worth passing along:

    RACISM EXPLAINED

    A black kid asks his mother, “Mama, what’s a Democracy?”

    “Well, son, that’s when white folks work every day so we can get all our
    Benefits, you know, like free cell phones for each family member, rent
    Subsidy, food stamps, WIC, free healthcare, utility subsidy, & the list goes
    on & on.

    “But mama, don’t the white people get pissed off about that?”

    “Sure they do, that’s called racism!”

    (Never more simply explained)

    For the life of me, I cannot understand why the media would print such transparent lies. It is absolutely, totally, and in all other ways inconceivable, that anyone in Chicago could have been shot. Shooting people is against the law. Carrying guns is against the law. Therefore, there is some darker agenda at work here. What are they hiding? How did these people die? Was their an outbreak of Captain Trips? Has there been an explosion in the land shark population? An epidemic of apoplexy after the Blackhawks lost?

    I don’t mind being lied to by the media, but I do hate it when they assume I’m a moron. Shootings? In Chicago? That is simply unpossible.

    Goes well with the most-un-PC bumper sticker ever: “If we’d have known it would be this much trouble; we’d have picked our own damn cotton.”

    Once again, I hereby denounce myself.

    LC/IB PrimEviL growls and barks:

    Thanks to the gawd-a’mighty Welfare State that eschews a man in the house, there are too many reliefer
    brood sows of all descriptions, race and region redundant. This results in too many of the culturally identifiable
    demographic colloquially known as “whomadaddys”. Perhaps the Progessive thinkers should make a new
    holiday for them; call it “Whomadaddy Day”.

    Shitcago is the poster child of this cultural devolution, but it is endemic throughout the Country. Wherever
    there are no black people to destroy, the Welfare State has no qualms of creating a permanent hereditary
    under-class of whoever is available. They want us all “down on the plantation”.
