**********Liberals solution to violence!
Maryland first-grader suspended for pointing fingers at friends, saying 'pow'
The longer I live the more I believe society has gone bonkers.
I don't know about some of you guys, but when I was growing up every boy in our neighborhood had .....weapons of mass destruction.......cap guns, sling shots, pea shooters, candy cigars made out of gum with a gold band around them, candy cigarettes in a realistic looking cigarette box. Not to mention the fact that almost every boy who turned 10 or 12 got a bee bee gun. Some I knew made their own bows and arrows.
Sling shots were made by hunting a tree that had a branch the could be turned into a Y.....then cut rubber from inner tubes to fit the stick and wahlah......all you needed now was a rock. Surely many a windows got put out along the way, and butts got spanked,(something you go to jail for now).
I am not advocating any of this in particular - but I still think our society has gone overboard with some of this stuff. Looking back I have to wonder how we survived some of the things we did with this home made stuff.
