Dad uses Facebook to teach daughter a lesson
Thursday, February 9, 2012
I ran across this while on facebook and was appalled by the father's behavior.
This man has some serious, horrible issues. His daughter has/had a right to write what she did. Ok, maybe it was not what a parent wants to hear - but she's a kid - and was doing what teens do (I'm guessing since my own kids are pretty much "perfect" kids - and I mean that seriously) I have never ran across anything like this with my own children -- but if I had, I know I would be mature enough to handle it.
This is America - that kid had her own dumb right to say whatever she wanted - ok, so she cursed a bit much - but she was rambling - she's a kid. That did not give this father the right to belittle her and do this to her -- or end by taking out his gun and doing what he did.
I feel for that kid. I'd hate to live with this man. Grow up - Mr Dad! You should be very ashamed of yourself. Yes, you could have grounded her. Yes, you could have taken her laptop away. But what you did is abuse - mental abuse - and using that gun of yours - sick! I don't know you but I can't stand you.
Sick - sick - sick bastard of a father - that's what you are! That kid deserves an apology from you. That kid deserves a real father.
Where have all the Ronald Reagans gone?
Wish things were simpler. Why, why, why - can't there just be a Ronald Reagan on the ballot - then everything would be so simple...... if only. For the second or third time in my voting history - I honestly am not sure which way I will vote. I am pretty conservative and have been looking at my options - trying to decide which is the lesser of two or three evils - figuratively speaking. But I'm not ready to commit to one candidate yet.
In the meantime, I've spent quite some time here - http://2012.presidential-candidates.org/
looking at how they differ on: abortion, Afghanistan, budget, business and labor, capital punishment, China, civil liberties, Cuba, deficit, economy, education, energy, Guantanamo, gun control, immigration, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Marijuana, North Korea, and Stem Cell research, etc.
Honestly - the more I read - the more worried I became. I wish I could pick and choose how they felt on certain issues and combine them into one "fantasy" presidential candidate.
