The Gloves Are Off

A CA state legislator named Sally Lieber is trying to pass a law that says you can't spank (beat) a child under 4 years old. And people are publicly whining about this! It just goes to further make my point that children are slaves. 'Parental rights' are about owning your 'property', and if you want to wreck or destroy or sell your property, then who is the government to tell you not to. Here's an example of a proud owner:

"The day that the [government] gives birth to my children, then they have a right to raise them," wrote Esther. "Till then they are mine to do with as I please. I will raise them the way I see fit. If I think that those little butts need a swat … I will be the one to give it to them."

Just because you got drunk and pregnant doesn't give you the right to own the poor creature who had to come through your body to get here. You don't get to grow your own victim. [And you should think about how you treat your kids if you don't want to get smothered in your nursing home bed!]

At one time we had a civil war because some people wanted to be allowed to own other people, and some people thought that that was wrong. It's time for another civil war.

Yeah, yeah! I love the nursing home line. I can't stand going into a public place like a shopping mall and seeing parents mistreat, belittle, or hit their kids. ENOUGH!

YO I'm sixteen, and I think its the complet opposite. The parents are slaves. They are forced to feed, cloth, etc... there children and the child can run around and the parent can't do anythng. and because of people like you, we have children who are spoiled and the parents can't do anything. 100 years ago you and me would most likely be working in some sweat shop, working 20hrs a day. so be happy your living in the 21st century.

There is no owning involved, there is sense of direction. A child has little real power in the decision until the adult gives it to them. Yet the adult must act responsibly and wisely and lead this child to grow virtuous and kind.
