Boy.... I Am Pissed!

Background Music:
The Twilgiht Zone


Did you know I have a real live witch living in my neighborhood? Yup, its true. My kids told me. Shes the lady that buys a house amongst 25 kids and then gripes when they ride their bikes on “her” sidewalk. I keep waiting for her to yell out at the top of her lungs “DENNISSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!”

Why can’t people chill out? Why must everyone whine all the time? We have become a nation of soft ass whiners. Ya know, so many people bitch and moan about how kids don’t play anymore, how they don't go outside, how they don’t ride their bikes, how kids aren’t kids any longer. Then you have some idiot that when the kids do go outside and play, throw their football in the street and it bounces in her yard, they bitch and moan and start petitions.

I swear. This country has turned soft. No one can say anything offensive because you “might” hurt somebody else’s feelings. Gotta have petition drives to ward off the kids. Can’t look down your nose at idiots because they are mentally challenged and therefore beyond questioning. Can't offend the delicate feelings of others. Freedom of speech my ass. Freedom of speech as long as it agrees with mine is more like it.

Where the hell has our spine gone? Are we so weak we can’t even let kids play in the street any longer? That our kids cant run around barefoot? That they cant drink out of the water hose? Bullshit. We all did that and lived. So will they.

Quit freaking babying them. Ya know. My kid came home today. There is a kid in her class that is picking on her. Now this kid should be in high school but isn’t because our educators aren’t allowed to say they are nothing but burger flippers and should go to burger flipper school. Cant hurt “anyones” feelings.

This kid hit my daughter. Did you know that you cant defend yourself anymore? That if, unprovoked you are hit, that you don’t have the right to stand up for yourself because you might damage the gentele mindwarp of a stupid kid whos parents don’t care? Bullshit I say. Someone messes with you and taunts you, you stand there. Someone takes a swing, I say fair freaking game and your ass WILL be laid out. It worked for me then and it works for me now. Its how the world works. All these people touting the theory of evolution but heaven forbid our kids prove “survival of the fittest” in our school yards because we gotta bend over and take it up the ass from 12 year old screw ups whos daddys left em for a pipe or a better lay. Bullshit I say.

Some of you dont like it. Some of you think thats just not right. But ya know what the system taught my daughter today? It taught her when she is out on that date and that boy is messing with her and pressuring her to do something or maybe forcing himself on her, that she has to take it. That she cant stand up for herself, because if she does stand up for herself and defend herself she is just like him. Bullshit I say! Kick them in the nuts!

My ex is a teacher. I paid good money for equipment in her classroom. She has kids that shit their pants, wear diapers, throw fits that destroy the stuff I BOUGHT and she cant do a damn thing about it. Why? Because the schools are too afraid of the crackhead loser parents that refuse to teach their third graders to shit in a toilet and would rather blame it on a medical condition. Bullshit. I say if your kid cant shit in the toilet in elementary school he needs to ride the little yellow short bus and screw his sorry ass feelings. Shit like a real kid. I bought that rug you just screwed up with your shit.

Cant spank your kids? Bull FA-RECKING CRAP! Thousands of years. For millennia the spanking got attention. It said “you listen here” and it said there is pain for misconduct. Thousands of years it is ok. Suddenly, in the last 20 to 30 years it has become uncool to spank these little punks because time fucking out works so much better. Bullshit. Timeout creates pansies. I am A.D.D. Put my ass in timeout and I have time to create my own little worlds to play in. Doesn’t do shit to me. Mom coming at my ass with a belt sure as hell spoke volumes to me. So suddenly, not spanking your kids is the way to go. We just decided this after thousands of years of parenting. Look where it got us. Pantsy ass kids that cant have their grades written in red ink because it screws with their psyches. Bunch of kids with soft feet that cant drink out of the water hose because Momma’s got bottled water in the fridge.

The witch? Shes just a grumpy woman that needs to get laid. The real witches? These parents that coddle their kids and tell them that no one is a loser and no one is a winner and we should all get along and be happy. Fine by me but welcome to the real world sister or brother when you get up old enough. That’s not how it really works. There are winners and there are losers. There are whiners and there are finishers. There are champions and there are has beens. Its just the way it works.

In Houston not too long ago, there was a kid in either middle school or high school that kept screwing with the overhead projector light while the male teacher was teaching. The teacher was lecturing the class and the kid who is going to one day discover the cure for cancer may have been in there. But this little punk asshole kept flipping the overhead projector light off and on, off and on. He was told several times to stop it and didn’t. What did the teacher do. Got fed up with it. The next time the kid did it the teacher walked over to him and smacked the shit out of that kid. Parents got all up in arms. How dare he! I am sure that he was fired. I am sure he cant teach anymore. But to me, that man is a hero. BUT TRAVELING you might say and in answer I will lay down as much money as I have in my 401(k) that…

That Punk Kid Will Never Fuck With The Overhead Projector During Class Again!

Laugh.

I still drink out of the waterhose sometimes. I just know now to let it run for a few minutes to wash all the creepy crawlies out before I decide to take a drink.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

I could not agree more, the fabric of this country is being stained with ignorance and stagnate, whimpy folks. I get to deal with the 18-23 year-old crowd. My business sometimes employs young people for misc. construction work. I feel that, with my anachronistic ideologies of work and life, they must be 1099 workers. The reason for this is simple, If they are W2 employees, I have to coddle them and treat them like glass or I'll be sued until the cows come home! Yeah, well, fuck that! If someone works for me they better be on time, do what thier told and if they choose (choose is the key word here!) to piss-me-off then they can reap the whirlwind! Don't blame it on your mama, the teachers or your lazy girlfriend that you just fucked something-up on my jobsite, a simple "I'm responsible for my actions, what would you like me to do next time?" works wonders on me! Those are the kids that get donuts on friday's and handsome raises! The rest of them get shown the fucking door!

Accounta-fucking-bility is being lost to the youth of this country at a rate I cannot even fathom (thanx all you assholes with unrealistic education ideologies and lazy parents). At my new home here in NH I let the neighborhood kids play in my yard, in the street in front of my house, it's great! kids playing outside, kids without thier faces vacuumed to a 52" tv or contracting carpel-tunnel syndrome from the X-box! WHAT A CONCEPT, CHILDREN PLAYING OUTSIDE! Playing sports and games that have winners and losers, just like adult life.

And Trav, my mother had a toolbox of spanking instruments. belts, wooden spoons-you name it! I was about ten before I realized the logic behind my mother purchasing "packs" of wooden spoons. She had to, she kept breaking them on my ass! And after a swat, my father would put us to work -hauling hay, mucking-out stalls etc. Time-outs? who ever thought of that needs to sit in time-out with my boot in thier ass! sorry so long-sore subject with me! see ya.

You got that right Trav! But the States aren't alone! Here in Germany, the Krauts are worse! Hell, even here, you can "sue" the neighborhood, and get your rent lowered just becuase there are kids playing in front of your house, or are being loud in the park behind you! What kind of world are our kids growing up in? I suppose the assholes that are bitching about the kids were born as Adults. Weren't they ever a child? Didn't they love to be outside and play and be loud?

As far as the discipline goes, I am still amazed at what some of the kids let loose from their mouths these days! When I was growing up, if we even thought of saying some of that shit, we couldn't sit for weeks on end. I agree, beating is not an alternative, but a nice whap on the ass don't hurt, although I have learned alternative ways to punish my kids without touching them, sometimes they just need it.

I agree with most of your post,, but I do have to tell you Trav I do take exception to one line.
Can’t look down your nose at idiots because they are mentally challenged and therefore beyond questioning. ,

My son happens to be "metally challenged and HE IS BY NO MEANS AN IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and perhaps if people would have a little more compassion so as not to look down their noses at them , then perhaps they could walk through this world holding their heads up and be proud such as your children are allowed to do. They are not "different" or weird or animals or any name tag people care to use
they are living breathing humans the same as the rest of us.

Excuse me for my rant,, just one parent to another, sticking up for her child as you are doing.

I'm a witch,but im cute and love children, they are crunchy! Just kidding about the crunchy part.

I am in agreement with you on the "rules of society" regarding our children these days. My children know, I will beat your ass, when i get to the whole 3 name thing. If they dont learn consequences as children when will they learn them? when they are sitting in cell block 6 waiting on that parole hearing? Its a sad thing. children need to be children, let them play, just also teach them thier bounderies.

Very well said my dear. I, too, have taught my children, who are very non-agressive, that if anyone, male or femaile, hits them first it is fair game. If you get suspended 3 days, then we sit home watching movies and eating popcorn all day. I don't believe that children should be taught to fight, but they definitely need to be taught values and to stand up for those.
We have too many children who are coddled, hence the huge rise in child/adolescent crime. I still spank my kids when they get out of line and I rarely have to do it anymore because they know what the consequences of their actions will be. If there are no consequences, then WTF do they care if they don't follow rules?
I will say too that I agree with Blondee-but that is a parent's responsibilty to ensure that those children with mental or developmental handicaps are placed in the appropriate classrooms. It protects them and other children and gives them the opportunity to be amongst their peers to feel equal and not a joke.

The Vote Recount in Progress is over. Things have changed. It's Official, Again. It’s not pretty.

My daughter was shoved into a set of lockers by a boy bigger than she when she was 16. As instructed for many years by yours truly, she defended herself immediately, knocking him to the floor with one punch. She was then placed on suspension due to "zero-tolerance"...no touching between studentd for any reason. I took it to the school board that very day...along with my attorney. She, after all, had the right to defend herself. Not sure if my ranting or the attorney's presence was the key, but they lifted the suspension. Things are so different than when we were kids. Had that happened back in my day, the kids would've been paddled at school and their parents called...much worse than a death sentence. That's why we didn't have ANY problems back then. I pulled my daughter out of public school shortly thereafter...homeschool seemed like a more just environment than what was being offered by the local administration.

It's interesting. I really agree with the intent of this blog, but I am very uncomfortable with the tone. If you are writing this as a "Mad Dad" then I totally get it. But if some of the way you phrased things is really how you feel, irrespective of how it affects your kid, then sweetie, it might be time for a little inner head slap. Think about it.

A little over the top, but clearly on point and basically valid...

What I always flash back to is one of Bill Cosby's routines where he & his brother are cutting up and not behaving. Their father came in and said "Look, I brought you into this world - I can take you back OUT and make another one just like you - So don't piss me off!"

When & why we started putting kids on such an untouchable Ivory Tower, I don't know... I think it started with the 60's hippie generation who kept saying "they're our future - they're the future of the World"... Bullshit! Kids are still just skulls full of mush that haven't yet contributed ANYTHING to society and, unless RAISED RIGHT, never will... I say let them learn and prove themselves before we treat them like gods..

The way most kids are treated now, instead of learning how to be responsible adults and contribute to society, they're learning how to "play the game" and scam the system - getting by on wise-assed mouths and attitudes...

My daughter is pregnant and, if she raises her kid in the contemporary mold, I'm going down there and smack some sense into BOTH of them!!!

I could go on, but this isn't my blog... Good work, posters!

Pleasing women in unbelievable ways for 45 years...
You could be next...

I think you figured it out already. Good follow up post. And I DO agree with the actual intent, which was that sometimes we just need to suck it up and make the best of the hand that we're playing.

Being a teacher, I have a lot to say about this, but want to think about it. I love my students and would never want to hinder their educational growth, but I agree there is a huge problem with authority amongst the generation I teach. Even though I have a great rapport with every student in the school where I teach, they have all challenged me. Being consistant on my expectations, they eventually respect me and follow my classroom rules.

Dad's backhand, the vice principal's switch, even Mom's spatula were hella deterants. And they worked.

Now we can threaten to take away their Gameboys, cut off their funding for the video arcade, or not buy them the latest DVD. But they'll find all those things next door, so no worries to the kids.

What are these parents thinking? They can't get their sons to wear belts or their daughters to cover their navels. If self respect is totally without merit, how the hell can they develop respect for anybody else? Let alone authority, since most of these kids have never seen real authority.

My exwife is one of those candy lovers, and my oldest kid is failing school because of it. Tested in the 98 percentile for years, but Mom thinks it's best he explore his own boundaries and get comfortable with who he is "on the inside". That would be a six year old in a fifteen year old body having a temper tantrum.

I say we do away with public schools altogether, and enlist them all in military school. At least there they learn the chain of command, and their miserable place in that chain.

I'm not going to get into anything with anyone in this space. Just let me make these points... my daughter has ridden in the "little yellow short bus" most of her school life and when she gets off she stands head and shoulders above most kids around her these days!

I've been told that I have to consider my daughter may have to take a job flipping burgers at McD's or saying "Hi" in a WalMart... well ya know what? BULLSHIT! If the system can't help her do more with her life then I will! I know she can do more and so does she! When she looks at her Dad and tells me math is way too easy, it's not fair... I think, yeah, you're right, it's not fair! I'm tired of fighting the schools and others who just don't get it, but as tired as I am I won't stop... I won't stop until I feel someone has walked even just a couple of feet in my shoes or, God forbid, the shoes of a person with a disability!

Just my two cents... and there's a hell of a lot more bouncin' around in my head right now!

T, as usual you lit a fire.
My Niece graduated from college this year with a specialty in teaching special education students. Her class size ranges up to 22 on a given day (rules state no more than 10). She has been denied an aide due to the budget. IAP (state plans for students with disablities) plans are ignored by the school as there are no resources to fund the speech, reading and other assistance needed. She is told to be quiet and get through the day. She has been physically attacked and the latest is when she tried to send a student to the principal they sent him back to class where he threatened to gut her with a knife. Oh she teaches grade school kids and since it is special ed there are kids from 1st through 6th grade in her room at the same time. She is afraid for her safety and has absolutely no control in her own room. She has been threatened by parents during and after school based on her schools refusing to provide basic needs. Her school has been taken over by the state and has no authority to fire the principal as the school council was disbanded. She teaches in a Chicago public school and this is her first year. Think she will keep trying for long? It breaks her heart every day and she tries her best to protect the non violent kids from the predators but there is little if any teaching going on.
