Wait until Mark Salerno’s kids hit 15 and don’t pay any attention to him at all.
They get pierced, ,smoke and do drugs and he will say: “I did the best I could with them, I never spanked them.

Mine got spanked when they needed it never harmed them inthe least.

Children are the property of the state. They demand to you how to raise them. You just get the privilege to pay for them.

When a lion cub does something it is not supposed to do, the mother lion swats it. That is instinctive!

If a child sticks a fork in a receptacle, a good swat on the tail and they won’t do that again. I consider that a learning experience.

I got it, my kids get it.

My 17 year old got knocked on his rear once for disrepecting me.

He’s 30 now, and never, ever spoke to me like that again, and he’s a fine man.

The libtards can go to hell.

But Patricia Dailey-Lewis says the bill was never meant to target parents who responsibly discipline.

But it will. And it will depend on Patricia Dailey-Lewis's (she the deputy Attorney General of Delaware) interpretation of what is "responsible discipline". She doesn't say and she can't, as the state will judge what that means on a case-by-case basis, so parents better be ready to face the full power of the state declaring them a child abuser: losing their children, jobs, jail time, labeled for life, etc, etc.

I'm sick and tired of lawmakers and government officials who don't consider all the consequences of laws they write and administer. They need to practice due diligence and word laws carefully to avoid over reach.

Well, that or they're just plain liars and they mean it to happen.

How about we pass a law that all laws must be reviewed by an independent board who investigate all the different ways laws can be misconstrued, misapplied, and changed? The board will have no power to change a law, just issue a public report on all of the ramifications. That way we'll know from the very beginning what the consequences are.

"The bill redefines physical injury to a child, to mean any impairment of physical condition or pain."

In today's climate of obesity hysteria, feeding your kid a donut could qualify as child abuse under this statute. So making them stand in a corner. "Impairment of physical condition" is one of those vague platitudes which have no real objective meaning and can make child abuse whatever anyone wants to call child abuse.

My youngest daughter (she is now 26) Disrespected me once. Just once. That was the only time I gave her a couple swats on the bum. I also told if I ever caught her watching MTV I would sell her TV at the flea market,and when she started driving if she wasn't home at the appointed time,I would take the wheels off her car. She is now in the medical field making a very nice salary,and is drug,alcohol & cigarette free. Also I'm going to be a grand pop this December!

Love ya kiddo!

Spanking is against the law in Israel. But it’s not very strictly enforced. Really, there are better ways of disciplining children. My favorite is shoving them outside and locking the door until they ask politely to come back in and promise to behave. But it’s none of the government’s business one way or the other, and that’s why I can’t stand that law.

The state doesn't want you to spank your children when they refuse to listen.

However when your children grow older and refuse to listen to the police when told to pull their cars over they will
be beaten with clubs and fists.

Some parents want spanking written into Senate Bill 234 as exemption.

But Patricia Dailey-Lewis says the bill was never meant to target parents who responsibly discipline.

Sure they're not.

It is legal to spank you child in Oklahoma, the legislature put that law on the books, so move where your parental rights are respected, Oklahoma.

They are a little picky about football though.

Democrat politicians need to be spanked early and often.

Nanny State PING!

The Delaware Attorney General's office says nearly 1/3 of child abuse cases aren't able to be prosecuted because of current laws.

[facepalm] Then doesn't that mean the kids AREN'T BEING ABUSED, you fuckwit???? What, are the laws an inconvenient impediment to you imposing your personal will on those rascally citizens of Delaware? Poor boo boo!

On another note, spanking outlawed? They can have my hands when they pry them from my cold, dead, uh.....wrists! Yeah!

"I don't believe in spanking your children, there's other ways to discipline them," he said. "I don't think physical pain should be endured on a child."

[facepalm] Neither do I! Where do you WANT to be while you're enduring pain? I don't think grammar should be endured on people elected to statewide office.
