Not A Family Friendly Guy…

ABC News’ take on things…

An angry Senator Jim Bunning refused to answer questions from ABC News about his decision to block a bill extending unemployment benefits; he is holding up funding for thousands of families.  The exchange took place as Senator Bunning was getting into an elevator in the Hart Senate Office Building.  “Excuse me!  This is a Senator’s-only elevator!” Bunning thundered.  I tried again to ask his reasons for blocking the bill, Bunning said he already explained his reasons last Thursday, when he said he wanted the $10 billion cost of the bill to be paid for, rather than simply adding to the national debt.  “Excuse me!” he yelled.  “I’ve got to go to the floor!”  As the doors closed, I asked Bunning if he is concerned about those losing their benefits.  He did not answer.  This is all on-camera.  Senator Bunning was even more expressive before the cameras arrived, using a little sign language.  When Senate producer Z. Byron Wolf spotted Bunning exiting his office, Bunning said, “I’m not talking to anybody.”  When Wolf asked him to stay and talk to our cameras, Bunning walked toward the elevator and shot the middle finger over his head.



Here’s the Tom Butts take on things…


Senator Bunning has explosive diarrhea and the Viagra he’s using isn’t working.  He was in a hurry to get to the elevator because he was about to crap his pants.  Earlier, the “middle finger” was caused by his failure to react to Viagra.  Think about it, what’s worse than explosive diarrhea and being flaccid all the time?  I guess the one thing that works in his favor is that Viagra is covered under the Senator’s insurance plan that WE provide him.  Perhaps we should hold up his insurance payments, anyone in??

Life can get busy. With work, kids, family commitments, friends, chores, and the general chaos of everyday life, it can be near impossible at times to sit down for a cup of tea, let alone squeeze in an hour of exercise regularly.

Estate Planning: The Basics For LGBT Families

by The Next Family March 25, 2016

With the passage of marriage equality last year, laws have been quickly changing across the United States. LGBT couples with or without children weren’t just given the right of marriage, they were provided new protections and benefits within their families. All of a sudden, LGBT couples and families had to figure out how to file jointly when it came to taxes, how to add...

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
