I got a text from my son-in-law the other night asking me if he can send me something he thought was relevant to today's political reality.
I don't know whether you guys remember Travis from this year's Summit or not.
But he's a good kid.
Well, he was a kid when I first met him.
I imagine he's pushing 40 by now.
When he first arrived on the scene all those years ago I never thought he'd stick around and I wasn't all that sure I wanted him too.
Like all goofy kids he was one of the biggest liberals around.
But like most people, the older he got the more he started paying attention to what's really going on in the world.
I won't say he's a full blown conservative yet.
And if the truth were known he'd really rather cook a good steak than talk politics.
But he's getting there.
Anyway, the quote he sent me is from a goofy Super Hero movie called "Watchmen."
I read it and told him I pretty much summed up everything going on in this country today and that it would make a good intro to an upcoming blog.
Little fucker texted me back saying, "Duh... That's why I sent it to you in the first place."
Smart ass kids anyway...
Quote of the day:
"This city is afraid of me. I've seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save Us!" and I'll look down and whisper "No." They had a choice, all of them. They could have followed in the footsteps of good men like my father or President Truman. Decent men who believed in a day's work for a day's pay. Instead they followed the droppings of lechers and communists and didn't realize that trail led over a precipice until it was too late. Don't tell me they didn't have a choice. Now the whole world stands on the brink, staring down into bloody Hell, all those liberals and intellectuals and smooth-talkers... and all of a sudden nobody can think of anything to say."
