      Spoiler: “Racism”

        I think it is collective frustration. A zeitgeist of of “Finally someone is knocking some sense into some idiot.” I’m sorry the peer pressure is taking her son away from her into cultural madness and self destruction. But the enormous attention is providing a cover from child protective services who might try to punish her for trying to discipline him. Where is his father? Where is a man for a boy to tell him not to act like this even if his peers are doing it and how to handle anger, frustration, impulse, and energy?

      It’s the same reason some people are celebrating a diet supplement company telling feminists and SJWs that if they have a problem with losing weight for the beach, it’s their own issue, not body shaming by them. It’s not that the company is so great, it’s that they are not cowering in fear because someone was fake offended.

        Here is a list of murders in Baltimore City , so far in 2015. This is a list of the 2015 Baltimore City homicide victims and additional information regarding age, incident location, notes, and event proximity to police surveillance cameras .This far into 2015 , there are 70 murders. But according to yet another special snowflake expert , mothers are worried about what the police will do?
        Talk about ignoring the elephant in the room? She is ignoring the entire herd.

          Fantastic article–plus, some similarities in teaching now–in doing bs stuff to pump up an administrators resume.

        It sounded more like personal history. The first thing she mentioned was “beating” from her adoptive parents. I think she needs to see a therapist – and keep her personal journey out of the newspaper.

        Corporal punishment worked for thousands of years. Progs made it a crime.

        • mcnorman says:

          I remember getting crap from some far left prog over my spanking my daughter when she tried to bolt across the street at two. She was partially deaf at that age which is why she got her arm yanked and bottom smacked. So I enlightened the moron about the hearing.

          Same thing happened in a store at the Brach’s candy aisle. Loose candy and little kids should not be a recipe for disaster but it became that way when parents were told that you would ruin their self esteem by shaming them in public. Hah! My kid was not going to learn about the word no later in life in jail. An early reminder of what is not yours to take would last a lifetime. Take care of business or someone else will take care of it for you.

          I suppose this is now considered mom facisim.

          My Dad used to say,
          I will put the fear of God in you.
          So it was religious training too. 😆

      • 49erDweet says:

        Idiots abound. How can one “blame whitey” if black moms suddenly grab their kids and send them home?

    • mcnorman says:

      In Michael’s own words, “‘He said ‘when I seen you… ma, my instinct was to run.”
      Mommas matter. He told Anderson Cooper that he will no longer be participating in riots.

    Well darn, I’m getting a bad feeling about these protests and that the Mayor was taking calls from ValJar (the stand down order?) and not the MD governor (R). All these protests stink of the professional agitators. I hate Obama World, it stinks of him too.

    It’s good to see Bernie Sanders step forward. The Democrat Party clearly needs an alternative to Clinton. While I don’t agree with him on all of his positions, he has some good things to say about our current economic situation. Anyone running for president next time needs to espouse a clear economic position that relates directly to our urban problems and it can’t just be words….there needs to be definitive action steps…as, actions always speak louder than words! Many in the media are saying about Baltimore that these young people lack “opportunity”….OK, so who is supposed to provide them these opportunities??? No one seems to answer that directly! The government? White people? Black people? Who? I’m really interested in other folks opinions.
    I’m looking forward to Sanders comments on these things.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Agree, I like his voice added to the mix. Nothing like shaking things up. Kind of like Rand Paul. Both can be a thorn in their parties side. But they both are a bit of a fraud in that they act like they’re independent, bucking the system, but when they’re vote is actually needed by their party, they pull the lever.

      • driguana says:

        Yes, good points especially considering that the “independent” vote is going to be very crucial in the next election. I’m also very leery of “ismatic” people….I don’t think you can be an independent and espouse any kind of “ism”…as in Sander’s case, socialism.

        • DandyTIger says:

          Yep. Independents for the most part are in the middle, not easily categorized. Sort of a middle way, buddhist thing. 🙂 Whereas some extremes within parties, in the end, won’t capture that group because they’re not in the middle, they’re the opposite.

          • elliesmom says:

            It’s my experience that “in the middle” isn’t someone who is halfway between the extremes on either side. Those of us in that position often side quite strongly with one side or the other if you take the issues one by one. It’s just that our views are not consistently with either party/political philosophy. I like it when someone like Sanders or Ross Perot enters the race because I get to see how far the more mainstream candidates will go to either join him or run away from him and on what issues they just ignore him and stand firm. For instance, I am for making abortion much more difficult and also abolishing the death penalty. One makes me a Republican and the other a Democrat. Once a upon a time Hillary Clinton said she believed abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare”. She’s backed completely away from the “rare” part to cater to the faction in her party that wants abortion legal anytime for any reason. I don’t know which is her real position, and I don’t really care. I know she can be influenced by the extremes in her party.

            I’d say I am pro life but do not feel I have a right to impose same thing with gay marriage I support it but don’t believe I have a right to force it upon anyone. Try to be environmentally conscious but not a zealot. Think rape fabrications are a travesty. Find transgendered persons wanting of help, but like abortion not my place. Conservative economically in the Palin vein not RHINO. Pro Isreal. Strong military. My give a damn(a la Helen) is broken where race is concerned. Neither extreme appeals to me. Not thrilled to vote R but cannot ever see voting D again.

    • elliesmom says:

      It will be interesting to see what position he takes with universal healthcare. Vermont’s experiment with single payer isn’t going very well. http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/the-nations-first-single-payer-plan-collapses-vt

      • driguana says:

        In the article about Sanders that I posted above, he clearly states, at the moment, that he advocates “a Medicare for all, single payer system”. It’s always interesting to listen to hear what politicians say when they start a campaign and how they “evolve” their positions over time!

        • leslie says:

          We’ll see how he “evolves”. He has been a proponent of Medicare for all as long as I’ve known (of) him.

    • Propertius says:

      I think we’ve had nearly 8 years of a President who doesn’t believe in anything except his own personal vanity and opportunism. It would be really nice to have someone who actually has some sort of personal convictions. Maybe that’s Sanders and maybe it isn’t – I’m certainly willing to listen.

    Did anyone else ever get the switch when they were a kid? My grandfather would make me pick out my own.
    Question the brat informed me that one of her friends is looking at adult photos on her phone. She is 9 years old!!!!!! I trust my monster and do not allow her to clear history. I don’t want to make too big of a deal about it with brat because I don’t want to give any sense of shame. Prefer that the exposure took place 50 years from now but bell can’t be unrung.
    She has a phone because of her grades and I feel more comfortable when she goes somewhere. Question is do I tell the parents of her friend? She comes over 2 days after school because her mom works late. After the brat told me I said no more playing in your room those days you stay where I can see you. She agreed completely. Do I betray her for being honest and direct with me by informing girl’s mother.
    Is it even a big deal? I think by 9 I had seen porn. If brat was a boy would I chuckle and say no more of that? 9 just seems so young. Pup is only 8.

    Daily Mail has some fabulous photos of the street mobs, in some you can clearly see signs with A.N.S.W.E.R.org which is a professional agitator group specializing in street theater (or how to behave in front of the cameras) and civil disobedience. Yes, they were part of Ferguson and OWS too.

    I turned out to be quite religious,
    Because I got the hell, beat out of me, On a regular basis. 😀

    Where I should have gotten two, 🙂
