Quote of the Day -- March 29, 2009

Good morning, Netizens...


This morning's somewhat-acerbic quote should certainly get the blood pulsing through your veins.


Experts say you should never hit your children in anger. When is a good time? When you're feeling festive?


Attributed to Roseanne Barr


Okay, so when it is acceptable to hit a child? I'm sorry, but you cannot quote me, as a victim of child abuse, when I should paddle the behind of a child, because I don't have a good role model upon which to base a decision. Did you ever paddle a misbehaving child on his butt? Did you ever slap a child's face? If you practiced alternatives to either, please share the wealth with everyone, because this child abuse is still a national disgrace. Are either forms of disciplinary action child abuse?


Some say either is child abuse, but in my opinion, the jury is still out. Please feel free to expound on this issue of national importance.
