I once mentioned a family called the Duggars in a blog post back in 2aught8 or so. Back then, they were "stars" of a TV show called 17 Kids and Counting; now they have 37 kids thereabouts. All with names that start with the letter 'J'.

Time to Get Serious
Author: BobR    Date: 2015-05-27 10:53:34

On Monday, we had a small neighborhood gathering in the front yard, a sort of "going away party" for our neighbors, combined with Memorial Day. We were cooking burgers and hot dogs and having a good time.

We have a primary coming up in a couple weeks for state office, and one of the candidates happened to campaigning on our street. He stopped by to talk to us, since he had Raine on a list of some sort. He moved on down the street, but left a political discussion in his wake which continued for a few hours. Despite our living in a very "blue" area, our neighbors possess a mixed bag of political viewpoints, which made things lively and interesting. Moderate conservative, libertarian, and liberal among us, we discussed various governmental policy points. I feel lucky that my neighbors - despite disagreeing with me on various political positions - nonetheless approach them intelligently and thoughtfully, and can articulate their positions and how they got there.

Advice from Mike

Our guest blogger takes questions and gives sound, moral remedies to those in need.

Dear Gov. Huckabee,

I try to keep a nice yard, just as Jesus would want. I keep the lawn mowed and put down fertilizer, shoot rabbits, squirrels and other varmints that trample on it; in short, it's a yard that you'd be proud of. My problem is my neighbor. At night when I hit the sack at 8:00 right after setting the DVR to record Hannity, he lets his dogs out to run through the neighborhood. It seems they love my grass and target it for their poop. My neighbor seems oblivious to the damage they are doing to my pristine yard. He even turned his back on me as I had to stoop down and pick up the excrement while I was in my suit last Sunday just before church. Obviously he wasn't going to church. Should I turn the other cheek and love my neighbor despite his faults, or go the eye for an eye route and poop in his yard?
Frustrated Homeowner.

Good Morning.

'Tis a fine morning for politicking, and around 9am this morning I'll be standing out near our local supermarket collecting signatures for a candidate. He's run before, without success, so fortunately still has that "Outsider" label.
