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… Read more »

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,… Read more »

LC Aggie Sith, a goddess, only different, G.G.O.R. @ #: It’s not just Chicago. New York City, that bastion of gun control advocacy, has had its share of similar weekends lately. 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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Six of the fatalities and 11 other shootings occurred overnight Saturday 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… Read more »

Tallulah @ #:

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.

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… Read more »
