Sink your fangs or park your broom; the books are coming alive and I'm buried in them!

What do you mean I can't discipline my children?

I know that there is a difference between discipline and child abuse. But it seems society draws a very fine line. Society says "don't spank them. Put them in time out. It is better for them." What!?!?!? It seems to me like society has lost it's every-loving mind! 

Now, before you freak out on me, let me explain. When I was a kid, there was no thing as time-out. When you did something wrong, you went and picked your own switch from the tree (and it better be a good one cuz if not my parents went and picked one....and you didn't want that), you bent over the end of the couch and got your ass whooped. Nowadays, you even mention that in public and people look at you like you've grown an extra head. Seems people think that if you whoop your kids it might hurt them as an adult. Hmmmmm....I got whooped and I graduated high school, waited till I was grown to have children, went to college and got my bachelors and am working on my masters. I have also been a contributing member of society for the last 16 years. Does it sound like whooping messed me up?

I was in Wal-mart the other day and was waiting in line to get my prescription. I told my boys to sit down and wait. They decided to start acting like Wal-mart became a jungle gym in seconds. I told them "I'm not going to say it again. Sit down, stop acting like this is a park, or I'm going to put my hand on your butt." They stopped. You know why? Because I don't give idol threats. There was this woman in line that said to me "It's about time someone wasn't scared to punish their kids in public." Scared? There are only two things I am scared of...spiders and God. I certainly am not scared to punish my children when they get out of line. 

Do I always whoop them? No. For small infractions they get to buy their time back from me by putting their nose on the wall. But for broken rules they get whooped. For not listening they get to go to bed. I'm not going to drag my kid kicking and screaming out of a store because they are out of line. Hell no! I'm gonna put my hand on their butt. I'm not saying I pull their pants down in front of everyone. No. But, they will get a whooping whether they like it or not. I always say that kids act the same way in public as they do at home. I'm not saying my kids are perfect but when we are out they don't act like little fools. They will grow up to be contributing adults because of respect. And that kind of teaching starts with us, the parents.

Stop being afraid parents across the world. They are our children and if we don't teach them what they need to know to enter society as adults then who is going to? Prison?

I can't have my plates?

So today I went to the DMV to get plates for my vehicle. I go in, I take my number, and I find a seat to wait for my turn. The DMVs are getting alot better at customer service so the wait times are not that long anymore. I go to the teller when they call my number. I tell the teller that I need to get plates for a vehicle I just bought. The teller pleasantly says "I can help you with that. Can I see your license?" I handed my license to her and she says "Is this the correct address on your license?" I told her I had just moved and so I wanted the plates to be in the county that I lived in now and not the county on my license. 

This is where it gets interesting. It has been a long time since I got plates for a vehicle. I have had the same plate since I bought my first car 11 years ago. Apparently, now they could care less if you just moved. They now require that you have two pieces of mail with the new address on it in order to change the address to reflect the correct county. Oh...wait...wait a minute....It must be two BILLS!!!!!!! Are you fucking kidding me? Let me lay this out...I just moved into an all utilities paid apartment so no bill there. I have my cell phone bill but I had to call and change the address and have them send me a bill. Other than that, I don't have any other bills. Oh yeah, by the way, my paper plate expires in like 2 days.

Yes, I should have went sooner but how was I supposed to know you had to have all this shit if I haven't had a new plate in 11 years? I feel there should have been something sent to me telling me of these changes. When I bought my first plate all I had to do was show them my drivers license. I know we are trying to make sure that people who aren't supposed to be driving aren't but who is paying for this? I am!!!!! I am an American, legal driver. Why do I have to prove myself? 

So, my plates are going to expire before I have a chance to get two bills in the mail and the DMV won't do anything about it. I still have to drive this vehicle and whenI get pulled over I'm probably going to get a ticket and maybe my vehicle towed. All because of people in our country not driving legally. Fuck all of you!!!!!!!! I am so tired of this shit!!!!!

Taking my guns?

OK. I know we are all a little upset what we have been hearing in the news about the government imposing on our Second Amendment. Some people don't care and that is fine. But what is going to happen when the government does sanction weapons and you didn't care enough? I will tell you. You will be the one huddling behind your neighbor with the shotgun.

Sounds too unreal? Don't think for a second that our government would do that? Ha. Nobody thought Hitler was going to be the tyrant he was either. You know what the first thing he did was? Disarm his citizens. Do you really think he would have gotten away with half that crap if the citizens would have had weapons to defend themselves?

I don't think we as Americans really look around and notice when things like this are happening. We have such busy lives that we don't stop and look around like we should. It's not our fault......completely. Life has become so fast pased that we never slow down anymore. All the drive-thrus and fast as can be service everywhere you go makes it really hard to slow down sometimes. And it is going to cost us dearly.

You may have seen some of the things being posted on Facebook about protecting our Second Amendment and you aren't paying attention to what it is saying but you should. People aren't posting it just because. It is for your knowledge and safety. Don't think for a second that if given the chance the government wouldn't become tyrant. Power does funny things to people.

So even if you aren't taking it seriously, you should be. It will cost you someday.
