All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Tats and White Trash

Tattoos are very common today.  I'm not a fan of the tattoo, or any of the other "body art" that people seem to be into these days.  I get that a guy in the service might want his unit, or insigne as a tat.  I can see doing something commemorative for a major life event. 

In a way tattoos are even a benefit to society.  What better way to advertise that you aren't fit company for polite society than getting a lizard skin tat all over your face and upper torso?  Are you a neo-Nazi?  A black swastika on your forehead for identification is helpful.  Are you a LBGTQ political activist?  Get a pink one.  That way everyone knows where you are coming from.

Like I said, its not my thing but adults can do what they like.  Different strokes for different folks.

Babysitter tattoos kids while mom away
(NEWSADVANCE) — A Campbell County judge on Monday certified charges to a grand jury against a mother and her boyfriend in connection with the tattooing of two children without consent.
Melissa Delp, 35, and Daniel Janney, 32, are charged with two counts each of malicious wounding and child neglect. The charges stem from efforts to remove tattoos on the children, who were younger than age 13 at the time, according to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office. 
 Don't ever let white trash care for your children.

    It's the Millenials turn, now.

    While tattoos have been around for millenia, it was always a fringe thing in the US, chiefly among the military. It really got a start with the Boomer hippies, blossomed with Gen X, and has absolutely exploded with Millenials.

    At one time, I wanted to get one just to be different. Since they've become so ubiquitous now, I no longer care.

  2. If you were to get one, what would it be?

    If you were to get one, what would it be?

    Yep, that is the question. I would want something unique. I could never think of something that I wanted for the rest of my life.

    Now? Not sure, since it never got to the point of picking something.

    My idea several decades ago was to get a dragon, but that's become passé, now.

  5. Go for a butterfly on your ankle. Not a lot of guys do that one.

    HAH! Yeah, that would go over well with WaterGirl...NOT!

    My son got a commemorative tat on his calf in honor of a boyhood friend of his that died of stomach cancer at the ripe old age of 24. It is actually not a bad tat.

    My dad got a huge eagle on his chest while in the Navy during the Korea conflict. About a year and 1/2 later, he got his chest hair. Funniest looking eagle you ever saw.

  8. I bet that was funny.

    One of the best tat stories I've heard was two buddies that joined the marines. They just graduated high-school and were supposed to go to boot camp latter in the summer. Since they were in the USMC, so they thought, they went and got EGA's on their chest, before they went to boot camp. The DI's went ballistic that anyone who wasn't a marine would DARE TO WEAR an EGA on their chest. After 13 weeks of getting lots of special attention they managed to graduate.
