PARENTALS

 

Barack and Michelle Obama are fine parents, they really are. They have two gorgeous and well-behaved daughters, and the Obamas have kept them mercifully free of the spotlight. I can’t say any more about them than that, because I don’t know any more than that — which is exactly how it should be.

But the Obamas aren’t my parents, and they aren’t your parents. But ThinkProgress represents the repressive and reactionary mode of thought that we are wards of the Great Men who rule over us.

No.

We are not their children. Our politicians, left and right, serve us at our pleasure — and it’s high time we reminded them of it.

Dear Mommy and Daddy:
Before you go on your next vacation, I want a raise in my allowance.
After all, I'm over 26 and I have to pay for my own health insurance
now, otherwise, you'll make me pay a fine.

Sincerely,

Your Son

How does the author know the Obama girls are "well-behaved?"

But this obviously is what the voters wanted. Otherwise they would not have reelected Obama. If 2008 was a mistake, 2012 was a chance to correct it. IT DID NOT HAPPEN......and maybe it still won't in 2016 when another socialist is elected president. That is why I believe 2020 will be the watershed year. By 2020, the youngest Baby Boomers will be turning 60, and the Generation X and Millennial Generations will be approaching the 50s and 40s respectively. Those latter 2 groups will need to take stock as to where their lives are headed. And that may be, gain may be, when the changeover begins to happen.

Wow, I went to work an autonomous, self-supporting adult and came home to find out I'd been adopted by my new paternalistic government. Where do I get a do-over?

Or you could say that the happy couple are our "role models": see http://clarespark.com/2014/03/20/role-models-talcott-parsons-and-structural-functionalism/. They didn't invent the watchbird state. For a better lineage, see the blog.

Besides being older than Barkey, I wouldn't want to have a punk as my Dad.

Anybody else want to belt out a chorus of "Guillotine Your Parents" by Deathtöngue?
