Good come back Sio! However I think hitting your child over the head with a blunt object is a bit extreme. Maybe holding em dowm with a flashing temple shot with the side of ones hand is far good enough.
Hmm, well it wasn't exactly a "comeback", but...eh.
I never mentioned hitting one's child with a blunt object. There's discipline, and there's abuse. They are NOT the same thing.
If one does something wrong, they SHOULD be punished for their error, and the punishment should fit the crime. There are way too many slaps on the wrist. If we are able to do something, knowing we can get away with it..what's stopping us?
In general: (*rant warning*)
I found it amusing that with all the hype about "Reality TV", few people, with the exception of the victims families, said that they wanted to see McVeigh's execution televised.
I suppose it's ok to gawk at the "beautiful people" being tempted into screwing up their already superficial relationships, or 7 WAY too emotional people, who don't have jobs, being handed EVERYTHING, and calling it REAL. That is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard of.
We are dummied down by this crap, and are sheltered from the true reality of life...which in turn, breeds the fear of death. Brutality is NOT death. It is part of the world we live in. We should KNOW things are wrong, and that there ARE repercussions both on Earth, and after...and that they should NOT be some little *tisk tisk, shame on you* type BS.
I only WISH there were still public executions! Those were a family event, back in the day. "'Round up the kids, we're goin' to a hangin'!" Damn skippy. I wouldn't hesitate to allow my kids to view one. They certainly wouldn't be a Darwin award waiting to happen, if that were the case.
O, not in cruelty, not in wrath,
The Reaper came that day;
'Twas an Angel visited the green earth,
And took the flowers away.
-- H.W. Longfellow
