    Barack Obama used his annual Father's Day proclamation to praise transgender “dads,” saying that all “men,” regardless of “gender identity,” play an important role in teaching children “the values that matter most.” “Dads play vital roles in our lives,” the annual proclamation, released last Friday, began. “From single fathers who struggle to make ends meet to surrogates who step up to be there for America's daughters and sons, these men help shoulder the greatest obligation that exists – raising the next generation,” Obama wrote. “Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status; whether biological, foster, or adoptive; fathers teach...

    The man killed in the northern Minnesota storms on Sunday night has been identified as the brother of Congressman Tim Walz. Forty-three-year-old Craig Walz was killed while camping in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. The Cook County Sheriff's Office says Craig Walz and his teenage son were camping at Duncan Lake for Father's Day when the storm began. Powerful winds knocked a tree onto their tent. Craig Walz's son was also severely injured in the incident, taken to a hospital and later airlifted to Duluth. As of 3 p.m. Monday, he is in critical condition. The pair was also camping...

    “No, no, no, Lisa. If adults don’t like their jobs, they don’t go on strike. They just go in every day and do it really half-assed. That’s the American Way.” “You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is, never try.” “Don’t eat me. I have a wife and kids. Eat them.” “Marge, don’t discourage the boy! Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It’s what separates us from the animals! Except the weasel.”

    We here in America have witnessed over the last past 50 years the EXPONENTIAL disintegration of the family unit and its catastrophic tsunami of violent physiological effects on our nation’s citizenry. From this disintegration and devastation has come most of the horrific social consequences in which we as a nation shall NEVER recover. The question that must be asked is, “Where is the God honoring father today in the “Land of the Free?” Well, America's culture has replaced the father by marriage to the mother with the "Baby's Daddy" and countless women are selling themselves to this immoral practice only...

    Thousands of Americans had long planned trips to Yosemite National Park for Father’s Day weekend — but the White House is encouraging them to arrive before 8 a.m. to avoid conflicting with President Barack Obama’s weekend visit to the park. The First Family is scheduled to visit Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico and Yosemite on a lightning tour through the West. According to the Fresno Bee, Obama will be the first sitting president to visit Yosemite since John F. Kennedy in 1962.

    "I can't put it into words right now. Just trying to soak it all in right now and hope that I get another opportunity," he said. "A lot of people don't even get this opportunity, so I'm very grateful." Wednesday, Morgan was pulled after two innings in his 13th start of the season for triple-A Lehigh Valley. He wasn't told he was being called up and texted his father, Wiley, saying his shoulder felt fine. That night, Wiley saw four cardinals on the back porch of the Morgans' home in Marietta, Ga. Two days later Morgan called Wiley with long-awaited...

    Several special interest groups have come together to protest Father's Day as a day of discrimination, as it allegedly stacks the deck against those women who are unable to become fathers, as well against those men who have chosen not to. "It's like an annual poke in the eye," said one concerned citizen, who did not wish to be self-identified as a member of any particular orientation nor gender. "As Michelle Obama recently said, the time has come to reconsider our traditions and reexamine our historical perspectives in order to accommodate this new generation who may not wish to glorify...

    “My father always used to say that when you die, if you’ve got five real friends, then you’ve had a great life,” Lee Iacocca once said. Well, my dad was one of my five, until the day he died a few years ago. Each Father’s Day that passes, I’m grateful he was in my life. Growing up in a middle class New Jersey suburb, my father, Larry, not only was a good provider, he also did the lion’s share of parenting while my mother was busy going to college, getting a doctorate and then working full time as a college...

    Reuben Geller, a man among men. I want to wish all the dad’s out there a wonderful, warm father’s day. I miss my father like mad. We love our fathers and wouldn’t be half the women we are without them. He died before 9/11 and frankly I am glad he didn’t live to see what happened to this great country. He wouldn’t recognize it. It’s funny. I remember being very young in the backseat of the car listening to my parents talking about things I didn’t understand – world events etc. And my father said, “nothing is forever”. And my...
