I myself had a rather abusive dad (well he's still my dad I didn't get adopted or anything) as a child. I know how it feels to flinch at the very sight of a guy who wants nothing more than to see you cry. He only stopped because at 14-15 I began fighting back hard. By 16 he'd realized I actually could put up a good fight even though I was skinny as f*** so he totally gave it up. The only things he achieved through this were making me feel hostile and threatened much like a pet dog that one kicks rather than scolding verbally and treating well at other times. Being too harsh is, so to say, like being too for to either wing of economics perhaps.Too far left and you're too kind on the lazy, too far right and you're too harsh. It's all about balance and since I'm a proud non-feminist I hereby will say; I would never hit a woman unless it was 100% her or me/someone I cared about and the same goes for a child. I would never hit a child or a woman unless serious things were at threat if I didn't. My child misbehaving is not a reason for me to use my masculine adult strength against them. I can understand a frustrated mother perhaps lashing out at her child now and again, women have less control over their emotions etc than men and that is simply why men's role must be to protect the women and children of whatever society they come from.I don't care if women can be stronger than men, it is psychology too; men who lash out truly do so out of malice it is not out of genuine frustration. If your child is actually that malicious that they intentionally drive you insane rather than just misbehave perhaps that child is not for you to raise and giving it to foster care or adoption is your way out. Don't beat your child as a man, it's just pathetic and makes you look really shit when that kid grows and you age and bam, "right back at you dad". The kid will either grow to abuse their own children or they will grow to hate you, it is never neither.
I have always believed in spanking to have a negative impact on the child's mind. I was spanked several times. Every time I wonder what I did to make them mad and that my parents hated me. I still to this day think about it.
What does a good parent do to help their child become a responsible hard working adult?
Would you agree that most parents love their child more than any politician ever could? So tell me what a good parent does when their child grows up and refuses to find a job, or refuses to follow the rules of their home. Good parents kick their child out of their house! Do they do this because they have no compassion for their child? Do they do this because they hate the poor? NO! They do this because they love their child and they have the simple intelligence to know that enabling their child to keep living irresponsibly would only ruin his entire life. When the GOP tries to use this same common sense, Democrats crucify them as hating the poor.Tough love works! If a parent who loves their children more than anyone, understands this simple common sense, why do people on the Left have no clue? If parents understand that accountbility and consequenses for one's choices actually works, why do those on the Left have no clue?When able bodied people on welfare refuse to get a job for years, why do Democrat's scream when the GOP wants to stop enabling their laziness and irresponsibility? What is wrong with the Left, are they just stupid? NO, they know exactly what they are doing.... they are pandering to their voter base. It is that sickening! They have no problem with your tax dollars funding their election campaign. If Democrats truly cared about the poor, they would want to get them off the degrading lifestlye of Government dependence and help them discover self respect and pride in their lives.
I find this Science Forum to be severely lacking in good and interesting science debates. So I am going to make a concerted effort to contribute some debates to it. I will begin with the subject of Cosmology, as I think it might be more popular around here than my field, which is Biology. (But I'll do some Bio stuff later!) So..to begin...a hot button topic: Are we alone in the Universe? Or is it teeming with Intelligent life? Sure would be a waste of space if we WERE alone, right? The odds and pure stats would suggest that there is nothing at all special about us here on the 3rd rock, in the backwaters of simply a regular and common galaxy. What do you think? Are we very special? God's only beings? Or are we simply one of millions of civilizations? And probably less evolved than some?Thanks for contributing!!\(Oh, my opinion is that we are NOT alone. I will expand more as to why later on after you guys get a chance.)
On November 20 Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton expressed astonishment that Republicans in the House and Senate oppose more gun control following terror attacks in Paris, France.She was specifically referencing the Republican’s refusal to expand background checks to include the same no-fly list that once inadvertently contained Senator Ted Kennedy’s name. It is the same list which the Huffington Post described as being so imprecise that an individual can end up on it by simply being “unlucky.”Yet according to CNN, Clinton said:Leaders in the House and Senate won’t even allow a vote on whether we should prevent people on the no-fly list from buying guns, including possible terrorists. It is just beyond one’s imagination; these are people too dangerous to be let on airplanes but Congress won’t stop them from getting guns. It is just something that makes no sense.So has the Obama Regime allowed terrorist into this country ?http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/24/hillary-clinton-aghast-gop-rejecting-gun-control-post-paris-attack/
Deaths from terrorism increased 80 percent last year to an all-time-record of 32,658 people killed, compared to 18,111 in 2013. The number is up about 426 percent from the 7,654 killed by terrorists in 2008 under President Bush, according to the latest report from ‘Vision of Humanity.’The 2014 economic cost of 13,370 terrorist attacks in 93 countries included property damage, medical costs, lost income for victims, and the indirect costs of preventing and responding to terrorist acts. The annual “Global Terrorism Index” report estimated those costs hit an all-time-high in 2014 of $52.9 billion.Does Obie even understand what terrorism might be ? http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/24/terrorism-deaths-quadruple-obama/
Senator Jeff Sessions is out with a list of 15 vetted refugees who quickly joined jihad plots to attack the United States.He’s spotlighting the refugees-turned-jihadis because he’s trying to prod GOP leaders into halting Congress’ normal practice of giving the president huge leeway to import foreign migrants and refugees into the United States.This year, Obama is promising to bring in an extra 10,000 low-skill, potentially difficult-to-integrate Syrian migrants into the United States. Sessions and other critics fear he’ll use his many powers — and Congress’ autopilot funding for refugee programs — to bring in far more than 10,000 migrants.In fact, from 2010 to 2015, Obama has allowed more than 200,000 low-skill migrants from Central American to enter the United States, and then disappear into the nation’s growing population of at least 11 million illegal immigrants.Obama says the new refugees will be vetted. But top security officials say the Syrians can’t be vetted because the U.S doesn’t know what they were doing in Syria before they applied for refugee status.How well is the Obama Vetting Process really working ?http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/24/sen-sessions-reveals-15-refugee-jihadis-hopes-shrink-obamas-2016-refugee-budget/
When asked whether the government should intervene if citizens say something that might be considered offensive to minorities, 40% of millennials agreed. This is, of course, still a minority of respondents, but when compared to those of the previous generations (even just the last), it is still an incredibly significant figure.Should the Government intervene in all aspects of life ?http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2015/11/23/study-40-of-millennials-oppose-offensive-free-speech/http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/11/20/40-of-millennials-ok-with-limiting-speech-offensive-to-minorities/
According to a recent student op ed, a bro-dude calling a room in his house a “man cave” is not just obnoxious but truly harmful to women and a “disgusting patriarchal myth.” “While I think it’s perfectly acceptable, and even healthy, to have separate spaces where one can enjoy time alone, the gendered language around ‘man cave’ is pretty gross,” Kalani Ruidas writes in a piece for Golden Gate Xpress, San Francisco State University’s official student newspaper. Lest you think that what a dude decides to call a room in his own house isn’t hurting anyone, Ruidas wants you to know that the idea of a “man cave” amounts to a “passive dig at femininity” — yes, the very idea of femininity! — because it’s like saying that “women are such a burden that they’re restricted from that zone.”Why is it just words bother the always irritated femanazis ?http://goldengatexpress.org/2015/11/16/man-caves-perpetuate-patriarchy-2/http://www.nationalreview.com/article/427208/college-sexism-op-ed-phrase-man-cave-offensive-sexist-san-francisco?utm_source=taboola&utm_medium=referral
The video was recorded by a dashboard camera in the officer’s squad car. City officials had resisted releasing it, fearful that it could lead to violent protest and rioting in the context of “Black Lives Matter” protests elsewhere throughout the country.Are " Black Lives Matter" protesters really concerned about the black on black crime that takes place in Rahm Emanuel's Chicago ?http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/24/chicago-police-to-release-video-of-teens-death/
Hillary Clinton is campaigning on a war against gun stores, gun makers, and gun owners, yet she has spent decades of her life—perhaps the majority of her life—enjoying around-the-clock armed protection either for offices she occupied or those occupied by her husband Bill Clinton.For example, Bill Clinton was Governor of Arkansas for 12 years (1979-81 and 1983-1993). It seems fair to presume the governor and his wife enjoyed armed security and transport. And Bill Clinton’s departure from the office of governor coincided with his entrance into the White House, where he served as president from 1993 to 2001. Upon entering the White House, the armed security went to its highest levels, as the president and First Lady Mrs. Clinton were surrounded by defensive Secret Service teams, tactical response teams, and integrated law enforcement and military personnel wherever they went.Why is it these Leftist Elitist are so anti-gun when they are protected by guns ? http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/24/anti-gun-hillary-clinton-enjoyed-taxpayer-funded-armed-security-decades/
I'll say it again: Class Warfare, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing.The talking heads on the left are constantly demonizing successful people in an effort to stir up the resentment and envy of their minions. But, what good is accomplished by hating successful and accomplished folks? Aren't successful people worthy of emulation, rather than condemnation? Perhaps class warfare assuages that natural tendency in some people (liberals) to hate those who have because they have not? I just don't think it's a philosophy that will serve them well in life.So, which is it with you? Do you consider them worthy of emulation, or worthy of condemnation
Which new innovation was the best at helping the Canadians secure victory at Vimy Ridge?
By early 1917, the First World War had been raging for two and a half years with no end in sight. On the Western Front, the Allies and the Germans had fought to a stalemate, with each side only being able to make small gains at a great cost in lives. Vimy Ridge was captured by the Germans in the early months of the war. A long, high hill that overlooked the surrounding plains, it was a key strategic position and the Allies wanted it back. Hundreds of thousands of British and French soldiers had become casualties in earlier attempts to recapture Vimy Ridge.The Canadians and General Arthur Currie knew the challenge they faced and set out to make very detailed plans, preparations and introduced new innovation (technology) and methods to maximize the chances of success. New innovation included:Research of Battle of the Somme failure, the Canadian Advantage, aerial photos, specialized platoons, mock area of Vimy Ridge, detailed maps to all soldiers, vimy Glide/creeping barrage, flash spotting/sound ranging, General Arthur Currie's motto "neglect nothing" or use of Tunnels.Pick ONE innovation and defend your opinion with reasoning,evidence and facts.
Speaking at an Iowa town hall during her previous presidential campaign in November 2007, Clinton pitched an idea similar to a database for illegals to stop another potential terrorist attack like 9/11. “So what are our options? I think you’re not going to be able to get people to come out of the shadows if you say if they come out of the shadows then you’re going to deport them. And so therefore you’ve got to give them some sanctions, penalties, fines, but bring them out so we know who’s here,” Clinton said then.“I feel really strongly about this because, you know, some of those hijackers who flew those planes into the World Trade Center, they came here legally and they overstayed so they were here illegally and we didn’t have a clue. I want to know who’s in this country. I want to keep track of them,” Clinton said. So why is it that Hillary has reserved her option on the Immigration Issue ?http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/24/hillary-clinton-2007-want-keep-track-illegal-immigrants/
While all of the 2016 candidates declare their strategies for victory against ISIS, President Obama’s leading from behind has now entered the Middle East and the West into a free-for-all that cannot end any way but poorly.The best way to understand the situation in Syria is to look at the situation and motivation of the various players. All of them have varying agendas; all of them have different preferred outcomes. Few of them are on anything approaching the same page. And Barack Obama’s failure of leadership means that there is no global power around which to center.Well the Leftist now see what a Failure an Chief that Obama is ? http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/11/24/no-islamic-state-will-not-defeated-still-lose/
Every holiday my family decides to go out to eat. It does not make me happy because you should have a home cooked meal. The people that are waiting on you have family and friends they want to be with on holidays.
Tackling climate change and improving public health can be achieved by forcing consumers to eat less meat in their diets, and it is up to government to force that change, finds a new report. Co-authored by the University of Glasgow and Chatham House, one of the world’s most influential think-tanks, the paper claims “our appetite for meat is a major driver of climate change”.Finding global meat consumption has reached “unhealthy levels” and cutting consumption is key to “keeping global warming below the ‘danger level’ of two degrees Celsius”, the paper calls for urgent government intervention. Far from being a potentially fatal move for democratic governments around the world, the report findings insist the public won’t actually react badly to the State taking meat off the table.So does Leftist / Progressive government need to intervene and force consumers to eat less red meat ?http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/11/24/meat-tax-influential-report-calls-meat-taxed-like-cigarettes/
Clinton, who wants to import thousands of Syrian refugees, told reporters in Reno that it would look bad not to let in Syrian refugees, and that might inflame Muslims against law enforcement.“If you’re in law enforcement, … you want the people in the communities that you are looking to get information from to feel like they want to help you,” Clinton said at a Nevada roundtable. “And if the message from people who are running for president, for example, is that we don’t want to take any Muslims whatsoever, that’s not good for law enforcement.”Does the stupidity of the Leftist ever stop ? http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/23/hillary-clinton-blocking-refugees-will-make-muslims-angry-at-police-officers/
