Now I’ve Heard Everything

I was planning on blogging about all the hullabaloo over class warfare.  But after catching a short sound byte on FOX News I decided I had to put class warfare for another day, and touch on this atrocity Ithat just came to my attention.  Stick with me, this will be short…I’ve gotta go grab cup of coffee #3 for the morning.  I’m almost awake!

Alright, I’m missing some of the details such as; names of those involved and the exact name of the law involved…and like I said, I’m in a hurry to go get my java, so no time to play with the DVR.  But, you’ll get the point alright.  So, the story goes like this.  A Canadian woman is suing her 2 adult children.  She is suing under Canadian law called, something like, the parental support act.  First you need to know that the mom in question abandoned her children when they were only 15 years old, and has not seen her kids since that time.  Under the law, she is suing her children for parental support to the tune of $750 per month.  I guess the point of the law is to have children be responsible and take care of aging parents who need help.  Naturally the kids doth protest.  Citing the fact they were abandoned and have had no relationship with her for decades.  The jury is still out.

Does Canada recognize ‘mother of the year?’  If not, here’s your opportunity!  Look, I grew up in New England, and I understand how stinkin’ crazy cold it gets in the winter.  I also understand SAD, (seasonal affective disorder).  You know the disorder that gets people all nutty and depressed because of the lack of light and sunny days.  Gets people all sad and moddy and stuff.  But come on!  Seriously Canada?  I think of Canadians as Americas weird, awkward uncle.  Aside from oil, hockey players and Nickelback…they don’t really have a whole lot going on.  Is this just a desperate cry for attention O Canada?  Stop the madness!  The fact that this is even a consideration under the law…to hold people responsible for parents who were NOT responsible is ridiculous!  Have members of US 9th circuit court of appeals infiltrated your justice system?  I thought we (they) had the market cornered on crazy…but you have surprised me.

To the mom…you’re sick, nuts, sad and pathetic.  Welcome to the Biblical principle of ‘you reap what you sow.’  It’s one thing if your kids choose to forgive you, and have pity on you and decide on their own free will to help you out.  But for you to have the gaul to feel entitled enough to sue in court to force the very people you refused to love and nurture in favor of neglect, reject and abandon. ..and now you want them to care for you?  WOW!

I sincerely hope that the Canadian courts rule in favor of your kids and leave you to fend for yourself.  First , so you can enjoy the harvest that you are due.  Also, while you suffer and live in poverty for the remainder of your days…hopefully you will think long and hard about the error of your ways.  Maybe you might actually be sorry for what you’ve done.  Who knows, maybe even a little repentance may come out of it.  In the long run, if that’s the case…you just might appreciate the decision of the courts to leave hanging out to dry.

In any case people, let this be a lesson to you.  Be good parents.  Love your children.  Care for them.  It’s not only the right thing to do, it just may come back to you later in life.  Parents sometimes do indeed need their children to take care of them.

Just when I thought I might be in store for a normal week, I get hit square in the face with this one.  Thank you environmental greenie wacka-doodles for this one.

According to FOX News this morning, the State of New York has once again topped the stupid meter.  As most states across this nation, and indeed, the nation itself is in financial crisis, we have found yet another brilliant way to toss away hard earned funds from the tax-payers.  Get this, the department of transportation in New York has spent tons of money, (money they don’t have), on new road signs.  Keep in mind, money is needed for more worthy projects like infrastructure, education and public services.  These signs are being placed along roadways near lakes and ponds, and other bodies of water.  Basically, they are signs warning drives to proceed with caution on account of the fact that FROGS may enter the roadway!  Holy stinkin’ cow, for real?!

But wait, there’s more.  These brainy elites in government have figured out how to waste even more money on this stupid project.  The signs are all hinged in the middle.  Why you ask?  So the state can pay workers to go out as the weather gets cold and fold the sign down, so as to not be visible.  Why you ask?  Because frogs don’t hop in the snow!  Oh, and obviously, the state will have to pay workers to go around again in the spring to fold the signs up.

Thank God for these geniuses in government that are on this mission to save us from ourselves.  I mean, what would we lowly citizenry do on our own?  I would have thought to myself that perhaps the frog wanted to die.  Maybe he is on a little froggy suicide mission.  Maybe tadpole mama was  caught creepin with the froggy milkman.  Who knows?  Not for me to judge, but if froggy is lookin’ to go to that lillypad in the sky, who am I to stop him.  But no!  Big government wants me to swerve into oncoming traffic risking the lives of pesky humans to save this little amphibian. Hey, I guess these gifted folk in leadership haven’t thought that by swerving out of the way, that perhaps we would turn right and go off the road and damage a tree!  There goes the ozone, and hello more global warming, right?  Come on already people!  Can we just get along with our lives without being freaks about every goofy idea that pops into a liberals head?  I’m all for the sanctity of life, don’t get me wrong.  But, here’s an idea for you.  How about we start with placing some value on human life and stop killing babies in the womb?  Maybe we could stop the slaughter of human innocents for, oh I don’t know, a minute or two?  Could we maybe get on that trip for a while?  Maybe instead of spending millions upon millions of tax payer dollars on saving frogs, and we could also save countless millions of tax payer dollars by not supporting abortion clinics, and planned parenthood.  Then, with all that money saved, maybe we could balance the books?  Or hey, here’s an idea liberals.  If you can’t get over NOT spending other peoples money, then spend this money on things like saving unborn children!  Maybe put some money into adoption agencies.  Or parenting education.  Nice idea hmmm?

Well, I gotta jump off my soap box.  Time to get in the car and run down a few amphibians and reptiles…and maybe a squirrel or two as I head out to lunch.  Oh yeah, I’ll be doing this in my Cadillac SRX.  Yes sir, it’s an 8 cylinder monster gas guzzler.  Just trying to do my part.  Don’t worry Canada, y ou don’t have thank me.  Maybe this year you guys won’t freeze to death!
