The Criminalization of Parenthood

***This is getting ridiculous, and scary. The government is not happy unless its tentacles reach into every aspect of our lives, including parenting:

What started out as a normal Sunday morning for Jeffrey Williamson of Blanchester, Ohio, turned into a nightmare when police officers showed up to his front door and arrested him in front of his family. His crime? Child endangerment—as the authorities described it—because his son skipped church to go play with friends. He now faces up to six months in jail.
According to Williamson, the local Woodville Baptist Church sends a van to his neighborhood twice a week to offer free transportation to those interested in attending services. Williamson’s children ride the van regularly on Wednesdays and Sundays. This morning was no different, as his eight-year-old son Justin and siblings said goodbye to their father and left their house to board the van.
One problem: Justin skipped church and went to play instead.
The young boy stayed in the neighborhood to play with friends and then later ended up at the local Family Dollar store down the road. After police officers were called to the store by a customer who recognized Justin, they took him back to his neighborhood where they proceeded to arrest his father for child endangerment.

That is absolutely crazy. The most annoying thing about liberals is they think they know better than you how to live your life. You want to be a vegetarian? Fine, but don't look down your condescending nose at those of us who love their cheeseburgers. Want to recycle? Go for it, but don't think you're better than those of us who don't. And on it goes. Our government is full of busybodies who think it's their business to make sure we all toe the line and live as they think we should. Reminds me of that scene in "Antz" where everyone is expected to dance exactly the same way, and if someone steps out of line they're frowned upon and forced to go along. Oh, and these are the same people claiming to be "pro-choice." Nah, they're only pro-choice if the choice you make is the one they approve of.

***"Worst President in 70 Years." Only 70?

“He’s the Worst President in 70 Years”
(Parody of “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” by Andy Williams)
Written and produced by Rob “Iceman” Izenberg

He’s the worst president in 70 years
There’s been nothing by scandal
Barack has mishandled
What’s happening here
He’s the worst president in 70 years
His views on immigration
His constant vacations
Obamacare’s giving us grief
I.R.S. and Benghazi
It looks like Mitt Romney
Would have been a much better chief
A better chief
He’s the worst president in 70 years
And if Hillary’s winning
While liberals are grinning
We will be in tears
She’ll be the worst president in
Just like he’s the worst president in
They’ll be the worst presidents in … 70 years!

I like it!

***Massive sinkhole in Florida. Geez, that's scary.

A massive, slowly-expanding sinkhole in Florida has local residents frightened and passersby curious about a year after a much bigger sinkhole sucked a Tampa-area man into oblivion.
The latest sinkhole in the Sunshine State, home to more of the fast-forming craters than any other state in the nation, opened up late Saturday on Spring Hill, a Gulf Coast town some 50 miles north of Clearwater. No one has been hurt, but at least one home has been evacuated due to the 40-foot-wide sinkhole and residents are concerned will spread to adjoining properties.

Can you imagine seeing that out in front of your house?

***Love my remodeled office! We worked hard all weekend and the rest of the house is in disarray, but my office looks great!

***Gov. Perry accused of "militarizing" the border. Yeah, that's what it's gonna take. Of course it's a mealy-mouthed Democrat making the accusation.

***Some of the world's priciest dishes. Okay, this is just ridiculous.

Start the day off with a $1,000 omelet from Norma’s in New York. Jet to London for a sampling of $25,000 caviar. End the night with $2,700 sushi from the Philippines, topped with Mikimoto pearls.

***Have a great day!
