    It’s too bad Macho Man Randy Savage has passed on. The Honky Tonk man is still with us, though. I wonder if he’s available.

    It’s OK. Trump doesn’t know what pathological means.

  • June 24, 2016 at 2:06pm

    Trumps is flawed, and a tool in the minds of some.

    Some people can’t afford the bus fare to commute things to memory.

    If morality wasn’t subjective, humanity as a whole would be able to agree on a hell of a lot of topics that we clearly cannot agree on.

    Hey Sarsfield. Truthfully, I’m just curious about that line. This story is about a woman who beat her kids around the arms with a television cord and a number of people feel that’s O.K.
    I’m curious because I never felt the desire or need to strike any of my 3 kids. As the adult in the situation I always felt that I should be the ‘smarter one’. Did they try to get away with things sometimes? Sure, they did. They pushed boundaries as did we all. I just think there are better ways to teach a lesson than corporal punishment. The trick is to figure out how to teach that lesson in a meaningful, long-lasting way.
    Mine are all in their 30′s now and doing well, the youngest a career jarhead ; )
    While I respect the rights of parents to raise children as they see fit, it’s clear that many are failing at that task. As for a definition of abuse, it seems the best anyone can say is that it’s like pornography. We can’t tell you what it is, but we’ll know it when we see it.

    So, the point being, who gets to decide what is abuse? The parent only? Society? Law enforcement?
    Maybe turning them in to the police would have been a good lesson. Would a night in juvie be abusive?

    Or at least the inability to outsmart a child.

  • [2] June 23, 2016 at 9:34pm

    Is there a line between punishment and abuse? If so, could you explain where that line lies? If you beat them about the upper body (arms) is that discipline? How about if you smack them in the face?

    Bruises are cuts on the inside.

    From the details in the story it appears she has bad aim

  • [5] June 23, 2016 at 10:58am

    Yup. I believe Adam said that when Cain slew Abel.

    Who cares about a handshake? Silly germ-spreading cultural custom.

    It’s the “They Hey Kid”. ; )

    How do you throw a text? I am old, and indeed, curious.

  • [4] June 22, 2016 at 11:13am

    Not dumb per se, but just like every other lying political hack.

  • [1] June 21, 2016 at 11:06am

    I wish someone would bury me in cash.

  • [-8] June 19, 2016 at 7:33pm

    Suzanne, it’s relevant to John’s claims, I made no mention of profiling.

  • June 19, 2016 at 7:11pm

    LOL!
