Some sick people in positions of power in this country.
Future historians will refer to our times as "The Crazy Years".
Actually, you have him right down. Except he had a great home life in Slovakia (I love his mom and dad) but does cut slack to anyone that has problems. This family has a dad that needs mental help and a mom that is at the end of her rope. Ignoring this kid is not going to help their situation.
However not all Christians are saps. They forget that Jesus put a limit on abuse (turn the other cheek 70 X 7 is not always) and that Jesus never said set yourself up to get smacked. That’s the kind of Christian I am.

You are my hero!
There were a couple of dozen of them complaining about low wages and then there was me.
My little sign said:
"Average Teacher Salary: $67,000."
"Average County Resident Salary: $52,000."
The reverse side said: "Teachers Greed Deprives Your Kids Of An Education. CALL XXX-XXXX TO HAVE STRIKERS FIRED."
In less than 10 minutes I had no fewer than 5 cops guarding me and my lonely little sign against the foul mouthed threats from publick skool teechers.
Oh God love you!
My sister started as a Catholic school teacher.
She earned 9,000 a year. I earned 12,000.
She could never understand the concept of working only 9 months means we earn the same.
Now I teach my own kids and they are two years ahead. She is sitting on disability, being paid by Cleveland Public Schools and addicted to morphine.
Nice work if you can get it.
Of course not, I meant that problem kids believe Christians are saps or hypocrits when we ignore their behavior and try to "love" them into compliance, especially when it's at the expense of the good kids having to put up with their bullying and terrorism.
They see this crap at school all week long and it burns a lot of children out on church to have to put up with it there too.
I get it! and agree.
I feel like telling my school-fighting story. Back in 7th grade, some of the other girls had been pushing me around, over a period of several weeks. I just hunched my shoulders and ignored them. One day, I lost my temper and fought back, going all out. (Nothing worse than hair-pulling.) After that, they were very nice and polite to me. At the time, that was all I knew, and I drew the obvious conclusions from it.
But, the good part came several years later, talking to the principal’s secretary. It seems that one girl had gone home and told her parents that she had been roughed up by me. They came charging down to the principal’s office, demanding justice for their little darling. Evidently, the principal had been aware of the whole situation, and was following the old-fashioned principle of ‘let ‘em work it out.’ He leaned back in his chair, smiled at them, and told them that he hoped their daughter had learned an lesson from it—that it’s not always safe to pick on someone three years younger and a foot shorter than you are.
Curious to know - did the bullying stop?
Of course the bullying stopped. Those in power had something to lose!
You’re an awesome parent L!
Below learn of the valor of a nine year old child.
From Mary Carpenter's letter to the NC General Assembly:
May you stand before God and man as my two precious grandchildren's killer if you pass any more gun legislation that will make me a felon should I own a handgun or any other gun for that matter.
A similar situation happened to me in elementary school. A friend kept hitting me with his coat. I told him, only once, that if he did it again I was going to punch him in the nose. He did it again and I kept my promise, and broke his nose. The next morning we were hauled into the principal’s office. He asked us both to state our version, and my friend, to his credit, told the truth. The principal simply said to him, “The next time he tells you to stop, leave him alone” and let us go. Neither of us got in trouble. It was a valuable lesson for me and my friend.
Many thanks for posting my article over here on Free Republic. The response has been overwhelming and to get praise from the Talkmaster is truly a great honor. I hope you have all enjoyed it and will visit the Buckeye Firearms Association site often as we have many great folks working hard to protect the rights of gun owners. Tim Inwood
