Welcome to adulthood…

What a day for my oldest.

A good sized income tax bill.

Slashed tires and a cracked windshield (uncovered by insurance)

And his first excise tax bill

Welcome to adulthood!

Random CPAC photo of the Day: Thank you very much

All I will say about this photo is that these two ladies treated me much better than I think I deserve and I owe both of them a debt of gratitude.

I will never give up hope for my country as long as I know there are people like this still in it who care.

Update: That’s a boring thank you, let’s spice it up a bit:

…from the daily beast today?

Why Yes, a certain Hat and pearl wearing rule 5 shattering lady can, her final conclusion?

Linda Hirshman is right up there with Frank Rich in her insightful insightfulness.

That’s gonna leave a mark. If there is anything I would add it is the obsession on the pro life credentials. It is the same obsession that I saw on Morning Joe today, an attempt to marginalize people due to their unwillingness to make others feel comfortable about killing their inconvenient children.

Yes that is very blunt, but hey sometimes it is necessary to be blunt.

Open prayer offering

Every now and again I’ve mentioned a cause that is worthy of prayer and asked for you to join in.

As you might have noticed I did a little post on the Rosary and the 30 prayer intentions that you can offer during it. It occurs to me that a few readers out there might have issues that they want some prayers said for.

So I’m putting out an open call: If anyone has a prayer intention, personal or otherwise that they would like me to incorporate into my daily Rosary just leave the intentions in comments below. If it is an intention that you don’t want made public the click here and e-mail me and I’ll pray on it privately.

I also invite any readers who see an intention in comments that they believe worthy to join in, every little bit helps.
