Re: News You Won't Find In The Liberal Media Part III Ws Kids Can't Read
Well then I'd hope that you would take care to discipline your own son or daughter so that would not occur (and I'm not only talking about corporal punishment). If your kid is so unruly that they won't listen to the teachers at all then they can also be kicked out of school. After that happens they are closer to not being accepted at any school. At a certain point they will only be allowed to be in school for "troubled youth". At that point the future prospects of your child is looking very dim indeed.

I was a squirrelly lad so I got spanked a good amount at home. Guess what happened to me? Or my two brothers? Or my sister? Nothing. My family is so even keel that you'd think we are weird. My wife thinks my family is weird because we never fight. I don't shy from my parent's touch. I love my parents and know they love me. I'm also about one of the goofiest bastards you'll ever run into. So what's the problem?
In a different context...think about how big of a joke the UN is because they don't do shit. None of the "problem countries" take the UN seriously or have any respect for it.
