Kevin72: . Enjoy your sequester, someone has to pay for the borrowing that financed the Iraq.

Way too thread-jack. But if you are going to do it at least be truthful:

"When Iraq is costing each household about $100 a month, you're paying a price for this war." - Barack Obama March 2008

"Applying that same standard to means-tested welfare spending reveals that welfare will cost each household $560 per month in 2009 and $638 per month in 2010."

In FY 2011, federal spending on means-tested welfare, plus state contributions to federal programs reached $940 billion per year. The federal share will come to around $695 billion, or 74 percent, while state spending will be around $250 billion, or 26 percent.

Combined federal and state means-tested welfare is now the second-largest category of overall government spending in the nation. It is exceeded only by the combined cost of Social Security and Medicare. Welfare spending is greater than the cost of public education and is greater than spending on national defense.

Since the beginning of the War on Poverty, government has spent $15.9 trillion (in inflation-adjusted 2008 dollars) on means-tested welfare. In comparison, the cost of all other wars in U.S. history was $6.4 trillion (in inflation-adjusted 2008 dollars).

Means-tested spending on cash, food, and housing increased more rapidly (196 percent) than Social Security (174 percent). The growth in means-tested medical spending (448 percent) exceeded the growth in Medicare (376 percent).[2] The growth in means-tested aid greatly exceeded the growth in government spending on education (143 percent) and defense (126 percent).

Normally I'd be on the geezer's side but something here leads me to believe the kid isn't quite as much of a bad egg / lost cause as some of you are making him out to be.

The guy actually caught the kid.

This leads me to believe something like this happened: The guy heard the rocks hit, ran to the door and yelled, 'Ay! Why you lit'el scallywag! You get your right lit'el English muffins o'er 'ere right now! The kid did so and was promptly grabbed by the scruff and queried: Right! Your parents at 'ome, then? Wewl, come on then! [Dragging / manhandling in the "churning butter" style ensues.]

And why do I think it happened like that? Because the kid didn't run. Unless the old guy is a sprinter or the kid is abnormally slow: there's no way that dude is catching an 11-year-old. I did stupid sh*t when I was 11. I would have hauled some serious ass in a similar situation. But, unless I'm missing something, this kid respected this old guy enough (or knew he'd been recognized) that he didn't turn on the jets when he got caught. Either way, kid doesn't sound like a psychopath who is beyond hopeof reform as some of you are suggesting.

I would have gotten my butt tanned for similar actions (and did). I also know that if some guy I had wronged pushed my face into a door, doorknob--whatever--he would be in deep sh*t with the folks.

I await your awesome replies. Please cut and paste this: Pffft! LOL!! below your posts to save me the time.

If only they had both had guns, maybe we'd have been lucky and they'd both be dead instead.

HaywoodJablonski: rocky_howard: Here come the apologists, but have you noticed that the increase of crime is inversely related to how much we beat our kids?

Kids need a good beating. Not sadistic abuse, of course, but a good smack every once in a while. No emotion or anger behind it, just slap.


Crime is down.
Beatings are down.

That's because of the decrease in pirates.

TerminalEchoes: GAT_00: This may come as a surprise to you, but you don't get to assault a kid just because they did something bad.

Which is pretty much why our country is circling the drain now.

Do you own and use a passport? I'm guessing not. The USA is the greatest nation in the world by a large margin

dickfreckle: Gotta tell you, in my 38 years of voracious reading this is the first time I've heard "frogmarch."

You don't read good Bushhateporn. Can't tell you how much I jizmed to the mental image of Karl Rove being frogmarched out of the White House for leaking Valerie Plame as CIA to punish her husband for saying the yellowcake in Niger was a lie. Enjoy your sequester, someone has to pay for the borrowing that financed the Iraq.

The worst part is now that the little urchin has seen the old grownup get into trouble, that means urchin is in the right - and can therefore continue his hooliganism unchecked.

But the next old man might know where to hide a body. Just sayin'.

Really, at 11 years old, it's too late for parenting to have a major effect on the kid. The kid's major behavior patterns are shaped by his peers once he's entered school. Parental involvement must have happened long before now.

Yeah, as a rule don't touch other people's kid in any fashion and never leave a mark even if the kid is yours.  I have been in the shoes of that 11 yro boy.  I am sure he already felt bad about the incident, so next time skip the beating.

"During the incident, David had accidentally pushed the lad's face into the door handle at his family's home in Darwen, Lancs, the court heard."

Yeah, I'm sure the cops didn't believe him either when he "accidentally" shoved his wife down a flight of stairs.
