Dangerous Questions

Posted in Humor, Politics on July 14th, 2015

The interaction between adults, especially adults in titular positions of authority, and children is always interesting and often amusing.

President Obama went to a primary school to talk to the kids. After his talk he offered question time. One little boy put up his hand, and Obama asks him his name. The little boy responded that his name is Walter.

“And what is your question, Walter?” Asked Obama.

“I have four questions” Said Walter.

“First, why do you think you can negotiate a treaty with Iran without Congress?”

“Second, why did you grant amnesty to millions when you said earlier you didn’t have the authority to do so?”

“Third, why did you say that Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction” yet now he’s being charged with desertion?”

“Fourth, why was Hillary Clinton allowed to run a private email server when that clearly broke the law?”

Just then, the bell rang for recess and Obama informed the kiddies that they would continue after recess.

When they resumed, Obama said, “OK, where were we? Oh, thats right: question time. Who has a question?”

Another little boy put up his hand.

Obama pointed him out and asked him his name.

“Steve,” he responded.

“And what is your question, Steve?” Asked Obama.

Looking slightly worried, little Steve responded, “Actually, I have two questions: First, why did the recess bell ring 20 minutes early? Second, what happened to Walter?”

And so the class learned an important life lesson.

Never Question ObamaNever Question The Supreme Leader

There is always a certain amount of risk in questioning authority but there is often great peril in questioning those who are unworthy of authority or who have gained or maintained it through less savory means.

I Love Mass Spanking

Posted in Society on July 13th, 2015

SpankingI love Mass spanking and, by that, I mean I truly love the latest ruling on spanking as a form of corporal punishment by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court somewhat less than I mean that I have any fondness for the actual act as a punishment. I have neither any fondness nor antipathy for spanking children.

I also  love how the lower courts got spanked. 😉

In 2011 Jean Dorvil was arrested in Brockton, MA on charges of assault and Battery for spanking his child. During the trial the judge made the odd remark, “If you’re in public with your kids, it’s not appropriate to discipline in this fashion.” Dorvil then lost his appeal based on the appellate court’s view that the child lacked the capacity to understand the discipline and that the father spanked her “when he was upset and angry.”

OK, so we have one judge that thinks that spanking is wrong and constitutes assault and battery if it’s done in public and another set of judges who thinks that spanking is wrong and constitutes assault and battery if the parent is angry when they spank the child. Combined, these two judicial statements imply that spanking is legally A-OK if it’s performed in private and if the parent is neither upset nor angry. Hence, by their statements, it’s perfectly fine in the privacy of your own home to spank you child if you just enjoy doing so.

No! That’s not what the courts meant…but it is what, in the language of the law, they said. They created an arguable defense with their idiocy.

Thankfully, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court overturned Dorvil’s conviction and coded that parents have the right to use corporal punishment to discipline and safeguard their children. Even better, they specifically codified that that a parent or guardian may not be subjected to criminal liability for the use of force against a minor child under the care and supervision of the parent or guardian, provided that:

  1. the force used against the minor child is reasonable;
  2. the force is reasonably related to the purpose of safeguarding or promoting the welfare of the minor, including the prevention or punishment of the minor’s misconduct; and
  3. the force used neither causes, nor creates a substantial risk of causing, physical harm (beyond fleeting pain or minor, transient marks), gross degradation, or severe mental distress.

Yeah, I love Mass spanking and, even more, I that the court now has this particular ruling on the books because legal precedence counts for more than legislative text.

Parenting Failure

Posted in Humor, Politics on March 1st, 2015

Drowning Obama

One of the most important – arguably the most important – duties that any parent must fulfill is teaching their children to make appropriate, wise, decision in the absence of their parents’ direct oversight. The costs of failing to correctly carry out this duty can be far reaching and horrific.

A case in point:

Four boys were fishing. As their boat rounded a point on the lake, they saw a man thrashing in the water.
With no hesitation, they jumped into the water and saved him.

It was not until they pulled him to shore that they noticed the man they had saved was President Obama, who had slipped away from the Secret Service for a swim.

When President Obama caught his breath, he thanked the four boys and offered them anything they wanted in return for saving his life.

The first boy thought about it for a while and finally answered. “I would like a presidential appointment to West Point so I can serve my country.”

The next two thought that was a great idea, but one said he had always wanted to be a pilot so he would rather attend the Air Force Academy.

The third boy chose the Naval Academy.

The president turned to the fourth boy, who was still thinking.

Finally he answered, “Mr. President, I would like a burial with honors at Arlington National Cemetery”

The president was shocked and asked the boy why he would make such a request at his young age.

The boy replied “Because when my father finds out I saved you, he is going to kill me!”

As you can see, failing to raise their boys correctly and to make correct decisions, exactly a cost to far, far more people than just those children and their immediate families. That’s a significant parenting failure. 😉

So raise your children right. There’s more at stake than might realize.

And yes, the problem with telling Obama jokes is that the boy’s followers don’t think they’re at all funny and Americans don’t think they’re jokes.
