This is scary $H!T!! More nanny stating!
I have to LMAO! My old man was not abusive by any stretch. He BEAT my @$$ on a daily basis. But i NEVER took a beating i didnt earn!
Another telling point...i aint never had an issue with the law in my 40+ years!
To this day i DO NOT fear cops or courts. But i fear that hard nosed sumbiotch...and hes been dead nigh on 14 years!!
OH! And the WORST @$$ whoopin's i ever took was from my momma!
A LOT Of the problems with todays society is this kind of nanny stating and CPS.
::A story of a parents love::
I am sure anyone with a "spirted" teenager can relate to this tale...
Back during the summer months i told my daughter to do the dishes (thats her chore) she popped off on me. (for the record, shes NOT a bad kid or a problem child...its simply she and I are oil and water) I repeated the order. She went into a tantrum. I backhanded her in the mouth! (open hand, back of my fingers, fingers loose) The intent was NOT to hurt, but to drive home the point. She FREAKED, double handed me to the chest, set me back a step or two. (I was IMPRESSED, i am not a small or weak person and to have her skinny little 5'1" 100lb self knock me back was, well, impressive, made me proud...SILENTLY proud) Anywho, it was ON then, I exploded! Snatched her little insolent @$$ up, tossed over my shoulder and marched up the stairs with her kicking and screaming the whole way and plopped her, uncerimoniously in her bad and told her to STAY! Well, I am sure you can guess how that went over with my spirited child.
I then MARCHED for my barn, grabbed a beer, did some deep breating excercises and tried to calm down!
Maybe 15 minutes later, as i am sitting at my picinic table under the old hickory tree, i see a city cruiser pull up out front, out she hops with the officer. I see him point at the front steps and she sits down. He comes down and asks "Whats going on?" in an exasperated tone of voice. I then explain what had happened.
We both go up front and he politely explains to her that where corporal punishment is NOT illegal in the state of IN and that as a father i have the right to discipline my children, she DOES NOT have the right to lay a hand on me. He then turns to me and asks "Sir, would you like for me to take her to ACJC (juvinile detention) for assault and battery?" (OHHHH i was sorely tempted) but i said "No. Its all good officer, no blood no foul." Really I was thinking i really didnt want this $H!T on my daughters record. He nods, knowingly (being a father himself) I thank him and apologize for this waste of his time, and he leaves.
Well, it turns out it wasnt my daughter that called the law...it was her friends MOTHER that stuck her nose in where it didnt belong and caused the issue. After finding THAT out, i thought i SHOULD have sent her @$$ to juvenile jail! And then explained to my daughter that it was her FRIEND that got her put there!
Anwho, then i got a visit from CPS. I laughed at the dumb b!tch more than once, She says "What do you find so funny?" in her bitchy attitude. I said "i find it funny that YOU are in MY house trying to tell ME how to run MY home!! YOU and YOUR agency are one of the myriad of problems in this country! These kids get disciplined and they decide they dont have to listen to those EVIL parents and just call you idiots! NOW, take that insolent girl and get her and yourself OUT of my house. Put her @$$ in foster care and see how well she likes living in a "loving home" like THAT" (my wife about collapsed when i said that) The nanny stater, taken aback by my bluntness, then said, "Sir, we're not in the buisiness of "snatch and grab" kids" I then said, "well then, our business here is DONE. GET OUT of my home!"
Two weeks later i got a letter from CPS saying that the investigation was complete and found in favor of the father and no further action was required by the agency.
ANYWHO, where i do KNOW there actually ARE children at risk, and there IS a need for agencies like CPS. TOO often as with any and all Govt agencies, they take their power and control WAY beyond the original scope.
This law is but another example. Every day a new law is introduced to make even less free!
