While we weren't looking

Delaware just outlawed spanking. Don't say, "Well, I don't do corporal punishment anyway." Tommorow some state could outlaw time outs because they are humiliating or making a kid do chores becuase it's child labor. Bit by bit, the State is taking over private life but most of us are too busy being stupafied by things like Kate Middleton's bosom or what some celebrity is saying.

YES! Oh my goodness, I cannot believe this happened! When I saw it this afternoon, I could've smacked my head against a wall.

*grump grump grump*

Is ripping a baby limb from limb permitted in Delaware? Oh yeah...that's a choice that's perfectly okay with these brainless pols.

Gina, watch it! Smacking your head against a wall will be made illegal too!

Guess I should remove the "target" from my keyboard then...

Just in case.

The indents I've left behind from past frustrations should be guide enough.

Just one more state to not visit...or purposely antagonize

Sweden outlawed spanking decades ago.

Delaware is following the Scandinavian model, the one which Bernie is so for? Don't you feel the Bern? < / irony off > I don't. I am an ex-patriate Swede, preferring streets of Paris to social services of my own country.
