    how things were back then and what is acceptable now. I had a tennis coach, that would stand us up against a wall and hit balls out us. Forced to keep our hands to our side, and just fire balls at us.

    I wrote a diary where I said this happened with us at the net. But it happened in others ways.

    I span an age.

    Where my mom used to beat my ass with a belt. Where things are different than now. For the better, but different.

      running through the house and saying she was looking for the race track,you know the little slot cars, to spank me with it. I often talk about my mom here. She is a rock star. But I might have had my ass beat.

        running strong:

        "My parents whipped my butt and I learned the Switch Dance… I didn’t hate them… I didn’t have trust issues with them because of it… I trusted I was in big trouble when I screwed up and did things my way!!! I didn’t fear them… I feared getting caught doing wrong… But I sure respected them… I learned what my boundaries were and knew what would happen if I crossed them… I wasn’t abused by no means what so ever… I was disciplined when i asked for it … This is why some children nowadays have no respect for others ….. *Re-post if you got your butt whipped and survived"

        That was part of Hannity's and Malkin's rationalization for Rice's methods the other day.

        liberal bias = failure to validate or sufficiently flatter the conservative narrative on any given subject
