Covered in bruises, his skin red and smarting, this sobbing eight-year-old has just been stripped to his underwear, tied to a tree and beaten by his father.

I don’t know. Geeze, If we have to ever face this heartless society, they’ll likely treat us worse than they do their own kids.

maybe people ought to think about pulling promises from our military, ‘cause, you know, good people WILL stop signing up to protect us from them.

Not like they’re not watching our dolt politicians and the mincemeat they’re making of this country

They need to make midnight basketball available for these utes. That will turn their lives around.

the good people in the military can only do good if we have good leaders, which we don't.....right now in Afghanistan and Iraq, our young people are dying for nothing at all...nothing...

and soon, it'll be the same in Africa as our dearest leader seems determined for us to get entrenched there....

We faced ‘em before, in the Korean War. And you are right about heartless. Add Godless and savage beyond belief.

We?

Not this abused and neglected group of young people watching the latest Republican VP candidate leading the charge to rip out promises made to the military.

never been done like this before.

People will NOT sign up for that.

Watch morale, it’s a factor. Always has been

The military depends on the people it protects to protect it from abuse. THe military is NOT a union.

If the civilian population continues to neglect and allow the abuse and neglect of the military by politicians, why should the military continue to protect and defend?

Young people? the ones we’re strapping with $17 trillion debt? They’re going to want to get out and fight for what, homosexual rights? the right to listen to Obama lecture us daily on tv, radio about how bad we Americans are?

I’ll bet that kid will never skip classes again.
But what would the American liberals do in this case?

1. take the kid away from parents
2. file a assault case against the dad
3. counsel the kid that he did no wrong because otherwise his self esteem would be damaged.

That’s the bastardization of the language that’s been in progress for some time now. “Freezing” means, in the common vernacular, nothing more than “f***ing cold.” Just as the word “ton” now means “a shitload.”

I’m no liberal and I would be all for abuse charges.

I am NOT in favor of telling parents they can’t spank their child.

I do have a problem with abuse. And tying a kid to a tree in near freezing temperatures, stripping him naked and then beating him with a stick - in front of a crowd of strangers no less - is abuse.

To condone such behavior requires a level of ignorance I have trouble comprehending.

When we think of people as property, this is what happens.

Slavery, abortion, and perversion are the result.

Gee, these just happen to be things ALL supported, whole heartedly, by the Democrat party in America.

0C = 32F
5C = 41F
Not exactly freezing!
Good catch!

‘5C’ sounds a lot more terrifying to the average reader than low 40’s...

There is nothing wrong with Corporal punishment when it is done by someone who is sane. This is insanity.

Oh puleez, I will bet any amount the boy is as healthy as ever. And the lesson would never be forgotten.

However that is not the kind of punishment I recommend.
The most effective punishment I found was to take away the cell phone for a day or 2.

By ‘we’ I meant our brave American young, (mostly), warriors who fought and died there.....but you are 100% correct and I agree with everything you said. I do not, or would not, blame ‘em one damn bit for not signing up either. I am now and always have been a huge fan of our armed forces. Homeless vets, vets not receiving the care they deserve, low pay, (they should have their pay tripled at a minimum I think), and on and on make me sick. What Ryan pulled has made me sick. I wouldn’t vote for him again if he were the last person on earth.

You know, and its not even a matter of deserve

That’s not it

They were given a non negotiable contract. Not the same as a corporate deal or a bookmakers deal or a union negotiation. It is different. It is what they sign for. Part of the benefit package not we’ll re negotiate this or this might change. A lot of things change in the military

They say you can get out at a certain point but not if there’s a war on they say you’re going to Germany and then nope whoops no go to Minot ND, but this is written in stone. You cannot now tell recruits they’ll get a particular retirement if they take this away. And that changes everything.

It’s like an employer says you’re making $17 per hr, you sung a contract quit job buy a house and move family then find out no its 1 $13 per hr

You don’t do that. If its done you don’t say give the guy what he deserves. No. It’s not up for negotiations. It’s what he agreed to. Negotiations already told him what he deserved its not on the table. There’s no trust no new employees no trust from the family no love nothing

I’d enjoy chaining the father to a tree and beat on him in the same fashion.

Parents definitely should have leeway for corporal punishment of their own children, but there’s a line you don’t cross into abuse and torment. This father crossed it, imho.

It’s not about deserving, really. It’s like this. I think over the contract. A lot is small print and up for change. But I’m counting on a certainty. Retirement income. $ 84 g is suddenly pulled out of my lifetime plan that affects my plan. That’s a huge chunk out of my plan for a retirement house.

After getting shot at a dinged in the desert after missing major family events I’m thinking what did i do that for these swindlers

See?

It’s not deserving like you would compare it to a food stamp recipient it’s breach of contract that future potential recruits won’t go near.

They’ll stay home and take their chances with a traditional IRA and NOT go to the Desert and spend Christmas with the camels
