It’s Father’s Day Weekend so it’s a good time to take some time to share gratitude for fathers who have loved, taught and helped raise their children to be good and kind people. Here’s to those dads who helped their kids with homework, coached their sons or daughters in sports, patched up the boo-boos, and set an example for their children of what it means to be a kind, honest and thoughtful person. And here’s to dads that are always there for their kids to help whenever they can (often with duct tape in hand).
Share songs that are about fathers, children or that you want to send to your father whether he’s here or looking down on you.
Now it’s your turn to share songs (or Dad Jokes) to celebrate fathers!
Adlib – I did not see an OT post so I am putting this comment here. Is KT still around the site? I ran across a comment he made in 2012 that he might be surprised to remember he said. Nothing bad, just a comment about the right wing
Right, I figured.
Hey Due! Good to see you!
TO/OT was simplified as Short Post, there’s a button to go there on every page in the right column.
KT hasn’t been around lately, I know he was dealing with taking care of his mom.
Which comment of his did you come across?
Let me see if I can attach it, I made a screen shot. Could get the screen shot to post so I copied and will paste here. It was in response to a sign the GOP had, We Came Unarmed this time:
This is what really gets me. These yokels actually believe they could win an armed insurrection against the federal government. When you remind them of the incredible fire power of the US military, they never fail to assume that those in the military would join them in their “fight.” It’s almost laughable if it weren’t so disgusting to think of.
This was back in 2012 from my post: https://planetpov.com/2012/07/09/figuring-out-the-far-right-republicans/
Very good comment, amazing that you remembered it!
I thought the same way but once you set the framework as having a fascist in the WH, where the militias are fighting FOR the people in power, the dynamics are far less one-sided.
We came so close to a fascist overthrow of our country and the GOP has been institutionalizing the levers to pull it off successfully in 2024.
They must be stopped.
