WHAT THE GAY BRIGADE PLANS TO MAKE OBSOLETE
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
My little boy took me to his school yesterday for a fathers’ day barbeque. We got through two sausages each before he showed me his school desk and what he has been doing all year.
After I copped the usual, "Oh did you bring your grandad today, dear", I settled down and took an interest in his schoolwork.
He gave me a drawing of us both and a present he had fashioned for me with his deft little fingers.
It was a box made from paddle pop sticks that I will use for my forever lost pencil sharpener and eraser. On top of the box were some stars and a poem someone who cared (I reckon a wonderful teacher) had written:
Here is a box
To hold all your keys
I made it with love
I made it with ease
I added some bling
To make your heart sing
With all of my love
Dad, you mean everything
It was nice to see the other fathers with their little boys who were wide-eyed and grinning with pride at showing their dads, not only their school desks, but showing their dads to the others kids.
I am not looking forward to next year because if the GGGGLL (Gangrenous-Gay-Green-GetUp-Labor-Left) get their way it will not be called fathers’ day, but “persons’ day”.
Now that might be okay for the two mums of one little boy, but I’m not sure about the other 30 dads.
“Person” doesn’t sound like “dad” to me and, let’s face it, “person” could be anyone from mum, to an uncle, to the next door neighbour, or to even the local priest. And I suspect “person” doesn’t sound like “dad” to the kids either.
Sometimes it just doesn't get any better
Oh well. I guess that’s what the GGGGLL call progressive progress and the thin edge of the wedge to make everything in our lives, including the marriage Act, non gender specific.
I hope they at least leave “fathers’ day” alone. Those beaming little faces are irreplaceable and the poor little fella with the two mums?
Well, he will have a grin twice as wide on “mothers’ day”.
