Corporal punishment, whatever it's form is still violence. It teaches the child that violence is a solution to a problem. Not using corporal punishment doesn't mean cursing and screaming is the alternative method. I chose none of that. I took away priviledges and talked to them. Sometimes I used the silent treatment; or just removed myself if they became mouthy; simply saying that they didn't get to talk to me that way. It worked.
My father used the silent treatment on us and we never disobeyed him or talked back. Never.
The silent treatment may have worked in your home but certainly not in the public schools.

Never before have I seen so many teachers and students screaming and cursing each other out.

What is this teaching children, Lily?

The politically correct poison is reversing the roles between children and adults thanks to progressive liberalism.

Discipline is a bad word to progressive liberals.

Do you think it's a bad word?

room for more reality :-)
WASHINGTON — The federal investigator who concluded that the Internal Revenue Service inappropriately targeted Tea Party groups said Thursday the tax agency had
failed to give him documents showing progressive groups were subjected to similar screenings.
J. Russell George, who serves as an IRS watchdog at the U.S. Treasury, told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that only last week did his office receive documents showing the term "progressive" was used to flag cases for additional review.
"The moment I became aware that other groups were spotlighted by the IRS, I directed my staff to commence review of that," George said.
"I am very disturbed that these documents were not provided to our auditors at the outset," he said. "They were not provided during our audit, even though similar documents that list 'Tea Party'… were."
George came under sharp questioning from the committee's Democrats, who have suggested his initial review of the targeting was flawed and incomplete because it focused on how conservative groups were treated.
The IG audit, released in May, said that Cincinnati-based IRS employees developed and implemented "inappropriate criteria" — using terms like "tea party," "patriot," and "9/12" — as triggers that sent those applications into a lengthy, burdensome review process. Newly released documents have shown that the IRS also used the key words "progressive" and "Occupy" to identify political groups for added scrutiny, and that a review of 5,500 e-mails by IRS employees showed no political bias.
"How could you not have, in the ordinary course of doing your work, discovered the treatment of progressive groups?" asked Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C. "That goes to a flaw in methodology."
George and other IG staffers defended the original report and said IRS officials shaped his inquiry at the outset by providing his investigators with a "be on the lookout" list — or BOLO list — that included the terms "tea party," "patriots" and "9/12."
George said IRS officials told him that the BOLO list was used by agents to select potential political cases. At no time did IRS officials provide additional information about progressive groups being screened, nor did they contradict his findings put forth in the IG's final report.
"IRS staff at multiple levels concurred with our analysis," George testified.
Republicans on the panel defended George and said there was still no evidence that progressive groups were subjected to the same high level of scrutiny as Tea Party groups. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said Tea Party groups were "singled out" and "systematically detained," with some groups' applications stuck in limbo for more than three years.
Thursday's hearing was the seventh such session Congress has held to probe the IRS' handling of tax-exempt applications from political groups. But it was the first opportunity lawmakers had to hear directly from IRS employees involved in the targeting.
There were 19 "so-called" progressive groups that were supposedly targeted compared to more than 240 conservative groups.

And those 19 groups were not subjected to anything like the same interrogative questioning and scrutiny as conservative groups.

A little disparity there.

Well, don't. If you read it backwards it spells, "Satan has your daughter. Again" But, really, honey, how many times are you going to believe her when she tells you that? Honestly, it's completely consensual.

He overestimated his imperialism. He assumed the extra cost would come out of profits. He was outmaneuvered. He's a business ignorant ideologue advised by clueless academic theoreticians.

The great sadness here today is that American culture shows The Crips crashing a Christmas Play in Middle America and someone forgot to hire Security for the night.
Something is bound to happen and it won't be a Silent Night.
It's not the first time for such, it probably won't be the last one either.
Really it's kind of just more political "backwardness of 50 years" by wish- they were- like- Martin Luther Kings types.
(Except they ought to be listening and trying to implement what King was REALLY saying).

From a nicely presented article:

Americans who marched on Washington 50 years ago under a blazing sun recall the day they were part of a turning point in history..

Videos by Ryan R. Reed

Ken Howard, a D.C. student working a summer job at the post office before entering Howard University in the fall, took a bus downtown to join a massive gathering on the National Mall.“The crowd was just enormous,” he recalls.“Kind of like the feeling you get when a thunderstorm is coming and you know it is going to really happen. There was an expectation and excitement that this march finally would make a difference.”

Only a few months before, in that electric atmosphere of anticipation, 32-year-old singer-songwriter Sam Cooke composed “A Change Is Gonna Come,” the song that would become the anthem of the civil rights movement.

The potent symbolism of a demonstration at the Lincoln Memorial—timed to coincide with the centenary of the Emancipation Proclamation and following President John F. Kennedy’s announcement in June that he would submit a civil rights bill to Congress—transfixed the nation. The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom also catapulted 34-year-old Martin Luther King Jr., who set aside prepared notes to declare “I Have a Dream,” into the realm of transcendent American orators....

"Even civil rights leaders profile.“There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life,” Jesse Jackson said several years ago,“than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.” Jackson now says his quotation was “taken out of context.” The context, he said, is that violence is the inevitable byproduct of poor education and health care. But no amount of “context” matters when you fear that you are about to be mugged."
