So anyway, I was waterboarding one of my kids today
trying to find out who spilled the juice on the floor.

Children's services busted in and told me they were taking the kids.

I explained to them that the US govt says it is a valid method to extract information, that my kids are under my care, showed them this same fact online, and they shrugged and left.

After waterboarding each kid, each one confessed btw.

Now off to that old lady Henderson down the street who I think called children's services. Her ass is getting some serious waterboarding let me tell you :)

1. i was gonna slap my kid for cussing, but i was told i have to taser them for cussing
Edited on Sun Nov-04-07 04:58 PM by seabeyond
or my kids would be taken and i would be in trouble if i dare to slap. slapping is abuse, tasering is not

you are funny

70. I just sent this thread to my wife, who works for Child Services.
She said, yes. Waterboarding is acceptable in Florida. Just ask Bill Nelson.

75. funny. hmmmm
and it is suggesting your wife is part of florida social services that are known to lose children. that could get you in trouble sharing so much on this board. with me though,.... i know there are a lot of hard workers and have all the faith your wife is one, and thank her for all she does in her challenging job. it is about like teachers where they are the scapegoat in so many ways, from all directions. just to share before anyone attacks

thanks for sharing this with her and her department.

And she would do her job for free, just to play with all the children that come through her office.

I am going to start waterboarding in my classroom. But I hate to waste money and buy a board that is too big. :)

18. Save money...
...and just use the playground teeter totter. It's right there on the playround and it can
be easily tipped, if you have a teacher sit on the lower end during the waterboarding.

Perfect!

I love it when you can legally torture AND save some bucks.

It's the American way!

51. Brilliant!
While you're waterboarding one, another can be strapped to the other end and readied. What a timesaver!!!

56. Love that idea!
Plus, those kids are small! You could strap at least 7 kindergartners
to one good-sized teeter totter.

Even more savings!

Plus, you don't have to keep turning off the hose, during the lag time when
you fetch your next waterboardee. You can leave the hose on and have one
continuous stream for everyone.

It's so much more efficient...and we all love to save time!

While you're at it, you might want to preemptively knife that guy who lives three doors down. I think he's going to break in and rob you. He's got that look about him. And besides, we know he's already got some stolen goods. They're somewhere in his side yard.

28. How sad that I found this so funny, when I then think about those having to endure such
torture I no longer smile and yet I am beginning to believe that if one does not use humor in addressing such important issues they begin to lose their place on the front page headlines.

There is something wrong in this country when far too many people find the way that laws and our government works are just too boring and to long a read to take the time to attempt better understandings of them and would much rather hear about issues in short winded humorous ways which really doesn't help us to understand why we are in the mess we are in today.

Other than that, I loved it and hate the idea that torture is being excepted so easily by those that lead this country's rule of law.

this thread is more along the line of how very stupid it is to suggest waterboarding is not torture. it is NOT making lite of torture. it is thru humor showing the outrageousness of our pres, govt and the people that suggest waterboarding, or tasering (my issue) is NOT a big deal

31. I know I understand and believe its a valid way to get the point across.
I guess I just find it sad sometimes that your more likely to get a response from the majority of Americans if issues are addressed in such a way, I would think the success of the Daily Show proves my point that they would rather watch that to find out today's headlines that spending a few hours watching what is really going on and being said by watching cspan which is obviously the only way one can hear it all and not just a few sound bites.

39. I agree with you, not about this thread, but about
Daily show, David Letterman and as I like to call them "Adult Cartoons" the Simpsons, Family Guy. Its like Fox puts us in front of the TV so that they can soften the news for us by inserting the news into a few quick sound bites coming from comedians and cartoons.

From the looks of it over the past 4 5 years they have infiltrated Saturday Night Live.

Its all a game, and the people who think for themselves are not in it!

once said we no longer can even be accused of playing chess, because that takes more thought and they don't believe the American people able to have such thought and intellect needed for a much harder game, my hope is that we the people prove them wrong.

57. If the family that prays together...
stays together--then I'm guessing that the family that waterboards together praises the Lord together!

Do you find that to be true with your great grandmother?

I bet you two have such a bond after that whirlwind experience!

44. I'm too lazy to waterboard ...
I just feed my kids e.coli-laden pizza 'n beef products, and give them lead-based toys to play with.

Sure, it's the easy way out -- but once I'm childless, my family health care insurance premiums will drop to under $15,750 a month!!!

58. My first child water boarding was a complete disaster
no one ever tells you that the Glad Press'nSeal gets slippery when you pour water on it. I took the time and care to press the stuff firmly on his face, but once the water hit...well it was just a big mess. I went for the fancy stuff because I wanted everything to be perfect, but the cheap generic saran wrap works best. Live and learn I suppose.

63. They BOTH confessed? Well, that just proves it works!
What you thought was a simple spilling of juice turns out to be ... a CONSPIRACY!

66. honestly, the nerve of some people. it's like yoga or stress positions: who's to say?
i regularly sense dep nana when she's having a senior moment. it's what she would've wanted, y'know? a chance to be alone with your memories and all. if only we could all have that luxury with the busy lives we now live, right?

76. especially if they are texan, intellectual boys....
boy howdie does that set my boys off. firstly it is a fake accent and texans dont really speak that way. secondly bushie boy makes texans sound stupid and that really offends my boys. they flip out.

they also have a book on bush's mistakes and carry it around reading to the kids in their class. i have to tell them to put it away when republican family members come over

73. It all makes perfect sense now.
The Quaker Oats Guy used to waterboard the chimp, and Jebbie, and Neil when they were kids! It explains their enthusiasm.

77. I'd type this up & send to the local paper's editorial section.
You might add a caveat that you are being sarcastic for the morans out there.

Kurt Vonnegut talked about how they often used inappropriate humor to deal with the horror of WWII.

Good work.

84. We (The USA) convicted Japanese Officers for waterboarding POWs
Edited on Mon Nov-05-07 11:47 AM by panzerfaust
As reported in the Mail & Guarian: Cheney Endorses Simulated Drowning

I do not know what sentences they received, but they should now receive a presidental pardon - if not a presidential medal of freedom.

This is our face to the world. How have we sunk so far?

88. I have no kids
But if I did, I'd use the same methods at Abu Ghraib. Besides, they're just harmless pranks according to the WH.

89. "USA Torture Day" A MASS waterboarding protest organized nationally for the Mukasey vote? ??
Would you be willing to undergo waterboarding as the Senate Judiciary votes on Mukasey?
How many people around the country and the world would you expect to participate?

96. The American Federation of Teachers wants YOU!
You're the perfect example for our young teachers, to show them how to run their classrooms and show the little bastards how to obey. You might even be able to make films we can show in teachers' colleges for useful techniques. Up to now, we've been relying on psychology to break them, but your techniques are far more thrilling. Contact us today.
