1900S FATHERHOOD VS TODAY
1900 Fatherhood compared to today.In 1900, fathers prayed their children would learn English.
Today, fathers pray their children will speak English.

In 1900, if a father put a roof over his family’s head, he was a success.
Today, it takes a roof, deck, pool, and 4-car garage. And that’s just the vacation home.

In 1900, a father waited for the doctor to tell him when the baby arrived.
Today, a father must wear a smock, know how to breathe, and make sure there is space on the video camera.

In 1900, fathers passed on clothing to their sons.
Today, kids wouldn’t touch Dad’s clothes if they were sliding naked down an icicle.

In 1900, fathers could count on children to join the family business.
Today, fathers pray their kids will come home from college long enough to teach them how to work the computer and set up their email.

In 1900, fathers pined for old country Romania, Italy, or Russia.
Today, fathers pine for old country Hank Williams.

In 1900, fathers shook their children gently and whispered, “Wake up, it’s time for school.”
Today, kids shake their fathers violently at 4 am shouting: “Wake up, it’s time for hockey practice.”

In 1900, a father came home from work to find his wife and children at the supper table.
Today, a father comes home to a note: “Jimmy’s at baseball, Cindy’s at gymnastics, I’m at the gym, pizza’s in the fridge.”

In 1900, fathers and sons would have heart-to-heart conversations while fishing in a stream.
Today, fathers pluck the headphones off their sons’ ears and shout, “WHEN YOU HAVE A MINUTE…”

In 1900, a father gave a pencil box for Christmas, and the kid was all smiles.
Today, a father spends $800 at Best Buy, and the kid screams, “I wanted Xbox!”

The Biggest Hate Group in the U.S.

I was a child of the Great Depression. I was born just as it started, so I lived through all of it. Barely lived. If you were not there, you cannot believe how disastrous it was for this nation. There were no jobs. The programs that President Franklin Roosevelt started were socialistic, BUT at the time they were all that kept America alive. My father hauled us (I was a baby) all over this country LOOKING for ANY job. He finally found work in a copper mine in Arizona while our family lived with his relatives in San Antonio. Later he worked in the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) where he made a dollar a day. At the end of the month the men in the CCC were required to send $25 back o their families. Men were proud persons in those days, and they would not accept anything “free” from the government, but they did real work for their dollar a day. And some of the things they built in the ‘30s (bridges, public parks, etc.) are still there today. Unlike the present when people are paid NOT to work, those men did real work for their government assistance.

Roosevelt was a democrat, but he was able to institute those work programs because of the cooperation of the republicans in congress. As I grew up the south was almost unanimously full of democrat voters. But the Democrat Party of depression days bears no resemblance to the Democrats of today. Over time, the Democrat Party has become the biggest hate group in America.

It encourages poor people to hate rich people, black people to hate white people, gay people to hate straight people and on it goes. Feminists to hate men, environmentalists to hate everybody because “people are destroying the earth.” Heads-full-of- Mush college students hate their old-fashioned parents who still believe in God and have some morals.

The real secret of the Democrat Party is that it attracts the media (TV, newspapers, magazines) who hate Republicans and do their best to convince the public to vote for democrats. A political party built on hate is doomed eventually to failure, because heartland Americans are not taught to hate. Donald Trump doesn’t hate anything, except failure. In 16 months he has done more for this country than any president in the last 30 years. Think what he COULD DO, if he had the help of democrats and the republicans who only pretend to be republicans.

If Trump had a congress (and media) that Roosevelt had, this nation would see prosperity that it has never experienced before. He loves America and its people. And all he has for support is the American people. Let the democrats and their allies continue to spread hate. Their days are numbered. And the sooner they are gone, the better for the United States of America.

R.I.P., Charles Krauthammer

I daresay that most people on Facebook don’t even know the name Charles Krauthammer, so let me speak for him without his permission. Mr. Krauthammer is dying of cancer and in his last column for the Washington Post he said that he had “just weeks to live.”

I’ve always said that most people are Liberals when they finish college and “want to save the world.” But they become Conservatives when they earn their first paycheck. When they see how much the government steals for worthless “social justice” projects they become conservative in a hurry. Mr. Krauthammer was no different. In his early days he was a liberal democrat. Later, when he became a conservative republican, he used his brilliance to enlighten a whole generation of young people on the dangers of socialism.

Krauthammer seemed to have Superman’s “X-Ray” vision because he could cut through the DC bullcrap and point out, in words that we common people can understand, the folly of most of the legislation that comes out of that swampy cesspool inside the Washington beltway.

Oh, we had our differences, Charles and I (although he didn’t know it). When I saw the first rally for Donald Trump with a stadium full of 60,000 people and another 10,000 outside who couldn’t get in I knew that Donald Trump would be our next President if crooked Hilleary couldn’t steal it from him. At first, Krauthammer called Trump an opportunist and celebrity seeker. But, to his credit, he reversed his first impression and became a Trump supporter.

Few people knew that Krauthammer was paralyzed from the waist down because they never saw him in his wheelchair. From an early swimming accident, Mr. Krauthammer, who was constantly in pain, had never let his paralysis become a handicap. When he was on the Fox News 6 PM panel, he was always the voice of reason who made the others appear to be still wet behind the ears. What made him different was that Charles Krauthammer was not only a newspaper columnist and TV panelist, but he was also a certified psychiatrist. I think that allowed him an insight to politics that few people have.

Today the voice of shouting, screaming, cursing, marching, radical Left Wing liberals are working hard to silence the few sources of Conservatism we have left in this nation. So to lose someone with the character of Charles Krauthammer is a monumental blow. He was unique and no one can take his place. But we were lucky to have him with us as long as we did. Charles Krauthammer, dying of cancer at the age of 68. There is no question that he will be sorely missed. Rest in peace, Charles. God has a special place for you.

Shocking News!

I know this is going to shock you, and I’m sorry to be the one to break the news to you but here it is: NOBODY runs for political office to help YOU. These hacks want a political office to help THEMSELVES. (The only exception in my lifetime is Donald Trump. He really does love America and wants the best for all Americans.) No, the run-of-the-mill man or woman running for local or national office wants a cushy job that pays well. They don’t have to have any talent except the gift of gab. They can talk all day and say nothing. They only have to go to a few meetings, they have great health insurance and free cars and free airplane rides. They get lots of money from lobbyists; they get free vacations to exotic places paid for by “donors.” And when they retire from “public service” they have all the money they can use for the rest of their lives.

Often, if we can pry them out of office, they become “consultants” for the lobbyists who have been shoveling money under the table to them for years. As a COSULTNAT they don’t have to do anything.

Let’s face it. With no exceptions that I can think of, except Trump, politicians are basically crooks. They may not even know they are a crook until they get into office. Then they see the power and the money and they become crooks. Yes, they learn to talk the talk and walk the walk and it is all bullshit. Unfortunately, most real Americans are honest people and they want to believe the lies that politicians tell to get elected. But that politician doesn’t give a damn about you, until the next election cycle comes up. By then he has told the lies so often he might even believe them him (or her) self. You remember when you were a child and someone told you that you might grow up to be President? Sorry. You never had a prayer. For years there were elite dynasties that controlled who would be President. The Roosevelts were one, the Kennedys were one, and the Bushes were another. Until Trump came along we hadn’t had an honest President since Harry Truman.

So what are we voters to do? Black people will do what they have always done and vote a straight democrat ticker, although the democrats have never done anything for them. And since they are so concerned about slavery 150 years ago, why don’t they remember it was a Republican who ended slavery? What do white people do? Well, any time we have an election let’s put all the candidates’ pictures up on the wall. We’ll have a couple of beers, and then throw darts at them and whoever gets the most darts gets our vote. The truth is, as the infamous George Wallace once said, “Democrats and Republicans. There ainit a dime’s worth of difference in any of ‘em.” Amen, George.

Tom Brokaw. A True Gentleman.

Well, now the women are crawling out of the woodwork to accuse Tom Brokaw of “sexual harassment.” I worked with Tom for a little over two and a half years at WSBTV in the ‘60s. I visited with him and his wife Meredith at their home. They were a devoted couple and are still married after all these years. Tom and I were not “hang out buddies” but I knew him as well as I knew anyone on the staff. And we kept in touch after he left and went first to NBC in CA. At one time he urged me to come to CA for an opportunity in “show business.” I chose to stay in ATL. He then went to NYC as a reporter and traveled all over the globe and we lost touch. We are opposites in our political viewpoints – he is a liberal; I am a conservative.

From my own experience I know there were some “personalities” at WSB in those days who would screw anything that resembled a woman if given half a chance. I was not one of them. And neither was Tom Brokaw. He was one of the most strait-laced people I have ever known, even to the point of being somewhat prudish. To some he might have appeared aloof, but truthfully he was a shy person off the air.

Were we staffers friendly with females? Sure. But in all my years there I never saw any unseemly activity toward any woman at that station. What they did on their own time was none of my business.

But I cannot believe that Brokaw changed so diametrically after he left WSB into some kind of sexual predator. It is just inconceivable to me. He was just Not that type of man.

I’m inclined to think that many of these women who claim, after 30 or 40 years, of someone “molesting” them are just opportunists who are after easy money.

And there is not a soul on this earth who could ever convince me that Tom Brokaw took advantage of ANY woman. The character of a man is formed early on in their lives. Tom Brokaw, the son of a military family, was a straight-arrow nice man. There is no way he could have changed his character so radically as to prey on women.

Of all the claims that are now out there this one, take it from me, is total bullshit.

Try some Logic, Kids!

I hate to tell the kids “marching” for gun control that they are directing their energies in the wrong direction. Can you older folks remember when you were a teen ager? You knew everything, and you were certainly wiser than your parents who were “old-fashioned” and out of date. Remember?

Britain has taken all the guns from people who have never broken a law. Now, the Mayor of London has called for “Knife Control.” No, I’m not making that up, it’s true. The logical trajectory of this movement will continue until we “outlaw” hammers, bricks, sharp pencils, rope, cars, shovels, sticks, ice picks, shoe laces, baseball bats,  stairs (well, after all, you can push someone down the stairs and kill them, can’t you?)

The problem, young people, is not “guns” but a sick society. You have reached your teens with no discipline; no encouragement toward religion, no influence toward seeking a future that includes “work.” You’ve been taught that America is a terrible place and that you are a racist (if you are white oddly, blacks are never racist) and liberals have convinced you that if we take away all the guns in the nation peace will prevail and nobody will be murdered again.

I hate to disillusion you, but ALL of that is poppycock. Your choice of “music” is performed mostly by criminals who paint a sordid picture of “Bitches” and “Ho’s” and policemen who set out each day to kill innocent black people. The evening news is filled with stories of corrupt and evil people running your city and stuffing their pockets with tax-payer’s money. Politics (and politicians) has always been full of self-serving crooks. Drive-by killings are as common as flies and mosquitoes. Home invasions and burglaries are considered the price of living in a nice home.

Have you given ANY thought to why law-abiding citizens own firearms? I’ll tell you. It is to protect themselves from a rampant, violent portion of our population who deliberately prey on innocent people. Taking the guns from folks who just want to stay alive when faced with these everyday monsters is not the solution to mass killings.

No, you have a bigger job than that, teen agers. You are going to have to CHANGE SOCIETY, if you want peace. You are going to have to work hard to get America back on the rails toward morality. Fill the streets, if you wish and if it makes you feel better. But you are going to have to grow up a bit more for you to recognize that taking guns from law-abiders won’t accomplish what you say you want. You could start by demanding that God be placed back in your schools. And you could aim toward a career that works toward bringing back the morals of a decent society. It’s going to be a long process and it requires more than marching with senseless signs. But somebody has to start it, so let it be you.

James Who?

We are semi-normal people so we assume that the government at any given time, like now, has never been so corrupt. We have good reason to believe that. The FBI which we grew up with was looked upon as sacrosanct. We could always rely on the FBI “in peace and war” as the old saying went. Its members were incorruptible. Elliot Ness cleaning up Chicago. Al Capone going to jail. J. Edgar Hoover, the steadfast “Chief.” Yep, when all other law enforcement officials were stymied, “Call the FBI.” They can solve anything and you can always trust them.

Now we know that is not true. We know that James Comey was as tight with the Clintons as Uma Abrideen. Comey’s July announcement of Hillary’s corrupt activities with her illegal email server were swept away when he casually tossed them aside by saying in effect that, “She didn’t mean to d it, so it was okay.” It wasn’t okay. It was a criminal act and he chose to dismiss it as nothing. What a phony! Instead of devoting his time to making cases against criminals, he chose to protect Hillary. Reluctant to even interview her, he allowed her lawyer to accompany her; she was never under oath and he assured h er that she would be cleared BEFORE she even opened her mouth. And a filthy mouth it is, too. Just ask those who have been around her for any time.

Comey should be in jail. So should the Clintons. So should Loretta Lynch, the crooked head of Obama’s Justice Dept. Every right thinking person in America knows that they all broke the law, and if we “common folk” did the same thing we would be indicted, tried, found guilty, and would be serving our time in jail today. Yet they all are writing their little tell-all books and placing their faith on the word of a porn “star” whore whose only claim to fame is sucking penises. My God, what has happened to our country?

We have the media and all democrats and many republicans whose only aim is to “get Trump.” We have the phony Mueller investigation that, so far, has only been able to sentence one person to 30 days in jail. Where I live, you could get that much jail time for jay walking. And Mueller, with unlimited tax-payer funds and a committee of democrats will keep this bullshit going for eight years. After that we will have a really neat establishment president and there will be no need for “Russian” investigations.

It’s mind boggling. But it is not unusual. It has been going on since the beginning of this country. In the days of Thomas Jefferson’s terms as President the media, at that time newspapers, were unbelievably vile and slanderous. They called Jefferson everything evil up to and including the “devil incarnate.” After the Civil War when U.S. Grant was elected President politicians were bought and sold as easily as buying or selling your Wal-Mart stock. Everybody in Grant’s administration was a crook. And every government since has had its share of miscreants. So, hang in there and support our President. All he has on his side are the American people.
