In some ways the old ways might be better. If you stole, you lost your hand. Ears, eyes, etc.

I think most of the people that take advantage of children or engage in other involuntary acts should have the offending members separated. I spay/neuter my animals after all.

I would love to give men who hurt women, or people who hurt animals or kids the revenge they so deserve, honestly....sometimes I really wish I could.

But that leads to too many more negative consequences, including bad effects on your own life. Bad karma.

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]That's pretty much what I was going to say, except I was going to blame the attitude more on the fundy mindset:

God created women for men, i.e. to dominate, and to use as baby machines and servants. Therefore, the actual "family values" rules only apply to women and children, but men can do pretty much what they want (as long as they don't get caught).

This slime-bucket is only sorry because he's been exposed.

39. I think the more descriptive term is "chattel". It's an Old English Law that refers to property

 

that can be moved...and used to include slaves, and earlier women and children...quite literally. It is from this concept that all females and young boys to the age of 12 were owned ... how the woman taking the man's surname began...and chastity belts were arranged.

It's not hard to see how many of these issues continue, in some form or other, to this day. For some women, the Title Ms. and the concept of the hyphenated last name and birth control is a further move away from this deplorable history.

chattel
[chat-l]

noun
1.
Law. a movable article of personal property.
2.
any article of tangible property other than land, buildings, and other things annexed to land.
3.
a slave.

15. Lewis Black said politicans do that a lot. And FRC is all political.

Black asked a similar question and then answered himself:

"See, his ____ works!" Thus, worthy of attention.

Don't see much different in the adulation of that family and the faux Duck Family gang.

Regarding the television thing. Yeah, they put this stuff out for the terminally bored who eat it like candy. It's cool because it was on teevee!

I imagine a reality show in the future exalting the actions of ISIS and the vapid public will drool:

"Oh, what strong men!" I really do see that in our future, after countenancing all this other BS.



Like that slime bucket. Lights, music, action! It's all good!

Monkey see, monkey do. Play that laugh track and the canned applause and that means we all agree with it. Well, those who haven't turned the damned Evil Eye off, that is.

the "get-out-of-anything-free" card. Swindle somebody - God forgives you. Kill somebody? - God forgives you - Molest some innocent sorts - God forgives you. Hell - there's even Gods that REWARD you for doing some of the aforementioned things.
Makes you wonder just WHY we bother with laws and punishments if the ULTIMATE power just wipes your rap sheet clean when you ask him to!

I may just have to start attending some house of worship. Just as soon as I review them all to see who gives the best return for my worship! I mean - 72 virgins might sound like fun if I were younger. But at my age it just sounds like a really arduous task!

59. I remember dubya saying that at one point. "Ah'm fergivven!"

This really makes me uncomfortable. I believe in a loving and forgiving God. But what I DO NOT believe is that this just gives you a blanket free pass. Murder someone? "Oh, I'M FORGIVEN!" Cheat somebody and steal from them? "Oh, I'M FORGIVEN!!" Screw somebody over? "Oh, I'M FORGIVEN!!!" Do whatever-the-fuck you want to hurt or violate or otherwise fuck over your fellow man but it's all okay because you're already forgiven. THAT is what it's turned into.

NO, george w. dry-drunk. YOU ARE NOT forgiven. No josh Bugger (OOPS I mean Duggar), YOU are NOT forgiven. NO YOU DO NOT get some Heavenly free pass.

If we're all forgiven, then why is there presumably a Hell? Where is the punishment and accountability for crimes committed against one's fellow man? Oh, I guess that's really just not needed. Because yer already fergivven!

53. Remember - "Palling around with teerrrrrrrrrists?"

From what I've read, seems like a lot of this was pushed under the rug so the Breeders could go on teeeeveeee and become rich and famous and role models for reckless overbreeding. I have to wonder about the family patriarch - what drove him to keep knocking up that unfortunate woman he married? What kind of ridiculous overcompensation do we have here? And WHY do we have a family like this glorified and held up as some sort of role models? Obviously this guy never heard of ZPG!

Whenever I see magazines with the Breeders (sorry, but that's what I've thought they were from the beginning - I've never been enthralled by this kind of family) or the "Teen Moms" on the cover, I just want to run in the opposite direction! Confession: I LOVE some of those trashy magazines. They're silly and fun, celebrity froo-froo. But I refuse to look at, much less buy, any of 'em if they have those subjects on the cover. Seems to me that's just signaling that "hey, you should do this, too! You might get a TV SHOW and become rich and famous!!!!" We saw that with the so-called "Octomom." She birthed all those babies assuming she'd get a TV show and become a star, or at least have that to help her support all those kids. Honestly, WHAT THE HELL WAS SHE THINKING??????? Same thing with that ridiculous "Jon and Kate plus 8" crap. I think that's what started it all. I couldn't be less interested. Seems to me all that does is hold up that kind of reckless overbreeding as a positive example of some sort, and encourages it in others so THEY TOO can get themselves a nice lucrative TV deal.

66. Liberals Only Angry Because...

Some of his supporters will claim that Liberals are only angry because he supports family values. I remember when Rush Limbaugh first got caught getting his maid to buy drugs for him. A supporter of Limbaugh wrote to People Magazine and claimed Liberal were only angry at Rush Limbaugh because he supported family values. At the time I was shocked that someone would write that type of response. I guess some of my shock came from feeling Limbaugh's supporter was not making him take responsibility for his actions.
