I don’t know the whole situation surrounding what occurred in this video, but in my opinion, the father crossed the line of loving discipline of his child into a violent outburst of abuse. I have seen proper corrective discipline, in a loving manner & I have also personally been a subject of a violent, angry parent’s abusive discipline. I’m speaking from experience when I say that disciplining or abusing a child in a violent fit of rage like we saw in this video creates resentment toward the parent. Instead of accepting the consequences and learning the lesson, the child ends up feeling like a victim of their parent’s anger. I’m not by any means suggesting that someone who chooses to spank their child for misbehaving is wrong or shouldn’t be allowed to do so. But I believe there’s a fine line between correction and abuse, and what we saw in this video was an example of a father enraged at his daughter and wanted to instill fear rather than loving discipline.
There’s nothing to stop gas prices from soaring past $10 per gallon or more. Obama’s second term will be worse because he doesn’t have to worry about the American people, or doing what’s in the best interest or the nation anymore.

It’s a sad reality, but we as Americans deserve everything we have coming to us for reelecting obama. It’s unfortunate that so many obama supporters are ignorant of the real issues facing the nation, and are only concerned with getting as much “free” stuff as they can for themselves.

No such thing as “free” healthcare, buddy. All the blind sheep obama supporters who think they’re getting “free” healthcare, obamaphones, foodstamps, govt housing, welfare, etc. are in for a rude awakening when it all dries up. The problem with socialism is eventually, you run out of ther people’s money.
