Heeeeeeellllllo everybody! Welcome to Flush 'em Friday, the 2 25 11 edition. Who would you like to see flush out of where ever they are?

Today I would like to see:

Muammar Gaddafi flushed out of control, for being such a crazy head job usually only seen in elections for Chicago mayor.

The voters of Chicago for voting in Rahm get what you pay for...wait he got what HE paid for...

President Obama for making the word/number trillion synonymous with the US debt.

Union bosses for being the thugs and or general knuckle heads they tend to be.

My fellow California voters for voting in Jerry Brown and crew.

The liberal media (see CBS, NBC, ABC, "Public Television") for being the two-faced hypocrites they are (see any nearly any news show or paper).

Well, that is all I have time for this morning, I would truly enjoy adding your flushies to my list.

Homework (Atomic Rooster album)Image via Wikipedia
When I came home from work yesterday my youngest son came up and gave me a hug. Then I kissed my wife and hugged my daughter. After changing and settling down a bit I looked over my son's homework and went over a few things with him. He is in third grade and in math they are reviewing multiplication and division facts. The sad thing is, I have not spent much if any time going over his multiplication facts with him, yet, he pretty much knows them all. He said he did make a times table chart at school once. So, I am happy he is doing well but, sort of embarrassed that I have done so little. Now, my wife does go over his homework before I get home. I guess he has a better memory than mine.

What is good is that I can enjoy some other things with him rather than just going over his homework. I am really thankful that I can come home and enjoy my family. Work has been pretty intense and the stress levels are high, and, I deal with middle school students and their parents on a daily basis, so, enjoying my children makes it all worth it. I hope you are able to enjoy the family and friends given to you.

No Tax Tuesday: What would the Fathers say?

There is a reason are founding fathers were able to set the course of our great country. They hated government intrusion into their lives and recognized the danger and evil that any government will inflict upon its' people if allowed to become the center of power. 

Thomas Jefferson:
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

George Washington:No taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant.
I wonder what our founding fathers would say about the government that now inflicts itself upon its' people? Would they call for a second revolution? Would they call us to arms to defend ourselves against the tyranny of big government out of control? What would they say to those who assail their constitution as a group of antiquated ideals?
