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.

Welcome to the People's Republic of Texas

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (CBS) -- A judge in Corpus Christi, Texas had some harsh words for a mother charged with spanking her own child before sentencing her to probation.

"You don't spank children today," said Judge Jose Longoria. "In the old days, maybe we got spanked, but there was a different quarrel. You don't spank children."

Rosalina Gonzales had pleaded guilty to a felony charge of injury to a child for what prosecutors had described as a "pretty simple, straightforward spanking case." They noted she didn't use a belt or leave any bruises, just some red marks.

As part of the plea deal, Gonzales will serve five years probation, during which time she'll have to take parenting classes, follow CPS guidelines, and make a $50 payment to the Children's Advocacy Center.

She was arrested back in December after the child's paternal grandmother noticed red marks on the child's rear end. The grandmother took the girl, who was two years-old at the time, to the hospital to be checked out.

Gonzales who doesn't have custody of the child or her other two children, is trying to get them back, but until CPS feels she is ready the kids are living with their paternal grandmother.

(End of story. My comments follow.)

I have no comments other than to note I just finished rereading "1984". In that novel the all-powerful State turned children against their parents as it successfully sought to completely dissolve traditional concepts of family. I'll say no more.

It's a shock to find the destruction of familty ties, which was on the agenda of the Frankfurt School, being pursued in Texas.

That lady was lucky. A few years ago, a man in Scotland was jailed for 6 months for slapping hi ill-behaved son at a bus stop.

Spare the rod and spoil the child and just look at what it got us today. Starting around 9 or 10 years old, the kids today are the most foul mouthed, disrespectful, lewd, rude and crude flotsam and jetsam I have ever seen. They need a good kick in the butt or belt whooping. That will cure them of what the liberal "timeout" nuts have done to them.

This gives me chills. No wonder I'm afraid to leave the house with my five little kids.

And in my daughter's case in PA, her ex has been emotionally and physically abusing the kids and getting away with it scott free. In fact, my granddaughter's school counselor had called Child Protective Services to report that she had told her teacher that "Daddy sits on me until I can't breathe and he kicks me." This is just one of the things she has stated, almost daily (while in the forced custody of her father every other week) he has done something to her or her older brother.

Child Services refused to investigate because they said the have to see bruises, broken bones, or other obvious physical injuries before they would check into it.

In the meantime, they are abused every other week by court order.

And this women gets in trouble for merely a "spanking"?

This country has some of the most screwed up family courts I've ever seen in my life.

Left-footer, we're probably not far behind in that thinking here.

MRG, my grandmother used to say that, "If you pat them low enough, hard enough, they'll always behave." I think she was onto something there, after all she managed to raise 8 children after being widowed while the youngest was 6 and the oldest 16. That was right before the Great Depression hit. But back then you were expected to just take whatever shots you were dealt in life and keep on keeping on. Today we're all encouraged to cry we're "victims".

Subvet said...

Stacy, thats exactly why I'm not making too many comments on this story.

Subvet said...

Mary Ellen/Nunly, yep. They should just scrap the whole concept and start over. Too many zealots take charge of the lives of innocents (as in this story) and too many lazy fools will do nothing (as in the case of your grandchildren). The system is flawed beyond redemption and should be replaced.
