    Hey I know how to turn this bad boy on and off. I can even type things in bold letters.
    I’m gonna quit showing off now and go to bed. Don’t wanna blow anyone’s mind with my mad computer skills.

    Yes she can knit a scarf around your nose and mouth faster than you can say WT? But can she bake a cherry pie Billy boy?

    Snickers with almonds, lemon drops, black licorice taffy and those Russell stover treats Susan was talking about. Only difference is that I like the vanilla marshmallow ones with caramel in them. Yummy

    Do I share? If I want anything to be left, I have to hide it.

    Yes I do live in a dream world. In it I was never beaten by 3 boys who lived up the street from me. They were bigger and older than I was. I never had my head stomped on in the street. I was never attacked with a lead pipe just because one kids drunken dad made him angry. I was never fish hooked at the end of a pole as I was walking up the street to a friends house. I didn’t learn to not panic when I was punched in the stomach or hit from behind and lost my air. Mostly in my dream world I wasn’t left on my own by my family to deal with all of this. In my dream world my mommy had my back instead of dragging me into the house by my hair in front of the whole neighborhood just because she was ticked off that her life didn’t turn out like she wanted. As I grew older and started to develop, the bulling changed into what we used to call “boys being boys” as they grabbed at my body. We now call that behavior sexual harassment.
    There were 4 kids that I bullied in elementary school and only one was a girl. By the time I reached jr and high school, people didn’t mess with me anymore because I had learned to protect myself. Or to at least act crazier than the bigger guy. I’m not a big fan if psychobabble myself and I do understand that you sometimes have to be the bigger bully to get by in the world because that was my life. However, I also understand that a bully is just a screwed up kid who is usually being abused his or herself. Most kids who bully haven’t been spared the rod, they have had the rod too many times so they seek out others to abuse because they want to have some control in their lives. Unfortunately, violence is often the only way they know how to gain that. There is a difference between physical dicipline and abuse that many adult bullies don’t seem to get so they just perpetuate the cycle.
    BTW I do still believe there is a difference between bullies and religious extremists such as ISIS.

    I always knew it would come to this.

    I find myself sitting here hoping that you have neither.

    Unfortunately there are situations when being a bigger bully is the only solution. First you must exhaust all other options.

    I still think that Lemont needed to take the situation to the other parent face to face instead of blogging about it. If a candid discussion only reveals that the other parent is the origional bully, then Lemont needed to become the bigger bully, or went to get Clyde. Then he wouldn’t need to worry about his kid getting hurt. He also needs to teach his kid how to stand up for himself and not allow others to push him around.

    Now it haunts us decades later, wondering just how much harm we did.
    Very much so. I have had the opportunity to appologize to 2 of the people I bullied as a child. I’m not sure if it helped them or not. I do know that it does nothing to take away the shame I have felt for all these decades.

    Having been bullied and then becoming a bully myself, yes I am pretty sure. Bully behavior is a learned behavior that is more about the need to feel control in some aspect of ones life. While religious extremists rely more on a sense of right and wrong. If one doesn’t follow their belief system they are wrong and deserve to die. I will admit that DavidHuieGreen is correct and a religious extremist can also be a bully. However it is usually a different mindset that fuels their fire.

    Between the two I’d go with Bugs but I was a bigger fan of Under Dog, Mighty Mouse and Speed Racer.
