My Parenting Skills Sucketh

1. I believe in teaching TD about caring for her planet. She knows how to recycle. She, uh-oh, likes it. Shh....

2. She wants to eat her veggies so she won't um, cough up blood or anything.

3. She likes to donate her time and money to worthy and valuable causes. Which, according to Glen Beck makes me a communist. I'm teaching my little comrade, er kid, to shill the White House creed. It's not that I'm teaching her to be a decent human being or anything. Nope, I'm just tainting her as I'm brainwashed by Hollywood, television and Obama. Le Sigh.

While I don't love the idea that it takes 30 Rock, Ashton Kutcher or a day at Disney (that's not really what it's about, now is it?) to get people to donate their time to a good cause I am willing to admit that for some this is the best approach. It's what all the cool kids are doing... or something like that. Gah.

What kills me is that somehow this is now a bad thing? Helping others is part of some master, evil plan? Sign me up then. Do unto others as you want them to do unto you. Spread hate, lies and negativity and well, maybe you'll cough up blood even if you eat your veggies. I'm just saying. Karma works both ways.

You know what is really scary? I've got another kid that I'm corrupting with all this commie nonsense. I think I hear Mr. Beck yelling, "Curses! Foiled again!" from his television studio. Wait... he's on TV too. Hm. What's his dastardly plan?

I leave you with this- A Thousand Points of Light. The American Presidency Project.


  1. And don't forget that REAL Christians don't buy into this "save the environment" crap. GOD IS IN CONTROL!

  2. You should be very proud that you are trying to instill a sense of charity and compassion in your child. Your parenting skills do not seem to me to be off track. On the contrary, it sounds like you are doing a fabulous job. Keep up the good work.
