I got mouthy to mom when I was in my mid-teens. Mom assured me that it would never happen again. She was correct. It never happened again. Mom tore off my clothes and paddled my ass in front of my friends as well as my brothers and sisters. I was totally humiliated.
I became meek and slowly understood that I had stepped over the line. Mom never had any problem from my younger brothers and sisters. That was more than 20 years ago.

Since hitting him will only get you in trouble I would warn him the next time he does it he will be going to boot camp and when he does it again, call them and have him picked up. They take kids 8 and up. You may feel sorry for him or bad about doing something so drastic but it may actually save his life. If he is into drugs... he will have a better life.

You think what your son does is bad. My brother is the devil. He calls my mother name's I've never even heard of. He punches her arm and throws stuff at her. He once threw a cup of hot coffee in her face. I agree that he didn't wake up one morning and become a monster but my parents have always been very passive with him. When I was younger and my brother made a mistake or caused a problem I would get beaten for it. And now when my mother complains and cry's to my "wonderful" father for help he laughs in her face. Seriously just take control and handle it or you will only make matters worse. Trust me some have far more harsher than you.

That kind of anger has roots somewhere.
I don't mean to call "wolf" but anger like that may be the result of abuse!!!
He may be angry you have not protected him from what ever is happening. You need to try and get him somewhere quiet, without any interruption, so you can have a heartfelt talk and see if you can find out what is going on, That would be the first step IMHO.

It was quite simple when I was a kid. If me or my brothers ever dared to hit my mom, my uncle would come over and beat the shit out of us to within an inch of our lives. Worked fine and I never dared to strike my mom...

Yell louder and hit him back with all you got. Remember, there is NO problem that cannot be solved with violence.

it is not uncommon for teenagers to act up in this manner. It would help to seek family counseling.

The kind that was raised in a sick country like America where fags and weaklings are worshipped.
Americans deserve what they're getting. If anyone is organizing a pity party for them, leave my name off the list.
But, if anyone is organizing a party whose guests will defecate and urinate on the faces of Americans, I will be there, invited or not.
