Hey Gents,As far as I can tell, Ben Carson not only has a great first name, but his reform policies seem attractive. I know that at this point his chances are slim at making the cut, but does anyone…Continue

Have you guys ever accidentally typed "man of artliness" in the search engine, lol! I just did that. I'm thinking about playing Halloween music and getting drunk tonight. No not here, not publicly I mean. And when I say "get drunk" I mean get slightly buzzed by having a wine cooler or something like that, lol. Yikes, what a year.

It's official, guys.

Not like I didn't know it was coming, but I still feel kinda weird about it. Too many things I still find disturbing about the man. I don't think that's just going to go away either. Still, I recognize how dangerous the Left is. I recognize how dangerous the rhetoric of the Black Lives Matter movement is. How dangerous it's become, especially lately. I don't know. I haven't left the party yet, but I still can't help feeling like I'm in a no-mans-land. For now anyway.

Trump is the official Republican nominee! Good grief.

Congratulations to his supporters.

I was hoping he wouldn't, but he did. Of course he did. He completely politicized the memorial for the fallen Dallas officers. He became the Lecturer-In-Chief. The community's hurting. They didn't need that. They didn't deserve that. He should've stayed away.

They did it, guys! Brexit!

The UK voted to leave the EU! I'm so happy for them!! May God bless their independence.

Congressional Democrats "No Bill No Break" plan to break the GOP.

Plan A. Stage a sit-in on the House floor while singing "We Shall Overcome" over and over again for however long it takes. If Republicans still won't give in...

Plan B. Hold their breath on the House floor until House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi turns dark blue, or John Lewis passes out. Whichever comes first.

I haven't said anything about the Orlando shooting because I didn't know what to say. So much pain and suffering caused by a radical Islamist, again. And the politics of it all makes me crazy.

I'll move on.

It's Father's Day weekend and I wanted to share this article. You don't have to be a dad to appreciate it, btw, but I think it's more meaningful for dads. Unfortunately, it's kinda rare to come across something like this. It shouldn't be, but it is.

Men take on many jobs the rest of us forget to acknowledge or honor. As Camille Paglia once noted for Time magazine, “It is overwhelmingly men who do the dirty, dangerous work of building roads, pouring concrete, laying bricks, tarring roofs, hanging electric wires, excavating natural gas and sewage lines, cutting and clearing trees, and bulldozing the landscape for housing developments. It is men who heft and weld the giant steel beams that frame our office buildings, and it is men who do the hair-raising work of insetting and sealing the finely tempered plate-glass windows of skyscrapers 50 stories tall.”

Here's the rest of the article.

A Father Is The Person Who Notices

Oh, also, I never could figure out how to fix the gif problem. I was going to delete my comments below, but I think I'll leave them as is.

Have a Happy Father's Day, AoM dads!

I don't know how to fix it! I'll try again later. It's not much fun without the gifs so hopefully I'll figure it out.

Comment by Marlie on June 11, 2016 at 3:07pm

Sorry guys! I don't know what happened. None of my gifs posted. I'll see if I can figure out why and fix it.

Comment by Marlie on June 11, 2016 at 3:05pm

Hey guys! I've enlisted the aid of my good friend, Sasquatch, to help me express what it is I've been going through this election cycle. The evolution of it, so to speak. A tale.

Here it begins with Trump's announcement that he's running for president.

Yeah, didn't really take him seriously what with his outspoken years-long birther conspiracy theories...

BUT he had my attention for a short time when he mentioned building a wall. I believe our country has every right to defend itself, and borders are a part of that. To me it's more of a national security issue than anything.

But I quickly noticed for every one good point he made, he made several awful ones. He went on to attack people of the right and left, whoever disagreed with him. Whoever he felt put him in a bad light: Megyn Kelly with her tough but fair debate question, the disabled journalist, John McCain because he'd been captured, Christian leaders who wouldn't go along. As far as he was concerned these people were all losers and/or haters.

So it went from this...

to this...

I think for me his attack on Ben Carson was the last straw. I never liked Trump, but after that as far as I was concerned his name was mud. One of my happiest moments during the debates came when Marco Rubio attacked him.

God that was so good.

It wasn't long before Trump took to attacking Cruz because of a leaked Cruz video. Trump didn't take it well, of course, and started a birther campaign against Cruz. His followers were all too happy to oblige The Donald's stance on Cruz's citizenship. It was ridiculous! But even crazier was Cruz tweeting that Trump was "terrific" right about this time. It was strange.

And more strangeness continued. But no matter what Trump did or said, the number of his supporters seemed to grow. I couldn't really say a whole lot about it here because it wouldn't've been anything good.

So instead I was like...

Eventually, and sadly, every candidate except Trump remained. How did that happen? I don't think I'll ever really understand it.

And then the terrible realization that Trump is our presumptive nominee.

Still feeling that.

And THAT boys and girls brings us to the end of our Trump'd tale. Our sad sad tale of woe.

Actually, there was more, so much more, but it'd take much too long to include it all so I only hit on the highlights. The end.

"I'm trying to pay back my friends...and trying not to forget 'em...".

For this man, Michael Reagan, every day is Memorial Day. He tells "stories" with his drawings.

God bless him.
