Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Elect this woman "Mother Of The Year"!

Found via Lucianne.com:
(CBS) FT. WAYNE, Ind. - An Indiana mother forced her son to wear a sign around his neck listing his law-breaking behavior and stand on a Ft. Wayne street corner for two hours earlier this week.

The sign read: "I lie, I steal, I sell drugs, I don't follow the law."

CBS New York reports that Dynesha Lax thought the punishment police had given her son when he broke the law recently wasn't strong enough to get him to stop his behavior, so she took matters into her own hands.

"He broke the law again today and they only gave him a few hours community service. So I decided that we're going to wear a sign," she said. "Since you're looking for attention, we're going to get you attention."

CBS Atlanta reports that some passing drivers evidently thought Lax was breaking the law and called police. But officers said Lax is completely within her rights to make her son stand on the side of the street. It is not illegal.

"I'm hoping that having him out here is going to make it sink in. It wasn't for it to be a joke or anything funny. He just had to stand out here two hours and suddenly it blew up. Then again they've got their way of parenting and I've got mine. My object is to save my son," said Lax.

(End of story, my comments follow.)

This reminds me of my Aunt Kitty (may she rest in peace) who was widowed at an early age with four sons to raise. She did it, and one of her prime motivators was to make it plain that "If you get arrested, you're on your own. I WILL NOT come down to bail you out."

It worked fairly well. The only one of my cousins by her that ever got arrested was Francis, the Jesuit priest.

But thats another story.

Love it! I'm sure she's already got her "hippie" haters.

Ranter; Judging by the article which states someone called the cops on her, I'd say you're right.

There will probably be many more coming out of the woodwork soon, but I doubt the woman gives a fat rat's patoot!

Personal responsibility, it's a tough pill to swallow. Good for mom.

Ah, if only there were more parents like her in this mixed up world!

Now that's a real parent. If we had more parents actually parenting (daring to do what is necessary to guide and discipline their children), our entire society would be far healthier in every way.

WHT, thanks!

Harry, well if you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough!
