Liberal Lunacy

Massachussetts is considering legislation that would make it illegal for parents to hit their kids under the age of 18.

Hello? This means no spanking, so slapping, nothing. Not a hair. If you do, you can be reported for abuse.

I don't care which side of the spanking issue you are on, this is absurd. You cannot come in and dictate to parents how they should raise their children.

On a different take, critics of the legislation say it will not accomplish it's goal of diminishing child abuse.

Look beating your child is already illegal, and that unfortunately hasn't deterred abusive parents from beating their kids. This law aside from absurd, will only serve as another ploy rebellious kids can use against their parents and as a total intrusion into the privacy of the home.
