    That isn’t a switch but Benson doesn’t mind telling a lie. It’s pretty hard for a switch to do any damage, it’s too flimsy.

    Tell us that again after you’ve been whipped with one. Especially the mental part.

    Really? Then why don’t you look at this from the WashPost. The author at first thought as you do, but then…

    Here’s a big thank you to my parents, for loving me enough to use the switch.

    I used to get switches in my Xmas stocking.

    And here’s a big thanks to my parents who loved me enough to not teach me that use of force is appropriate to teach self-control.
    I was never hit by my parents.

    Charles Dickens just can’t educate some fools. Sadly those fools pass their ignorant ways on to their children, and so on! Nicholas Nickelby springs to mind.

    Some people only ever read the first half of Dickens novels, because that’s their favorite part.

    I just read the article, and saw the photos.
    I totally recant my post under Clay Bennett’s ’toon.
    (You were lucky to have the parents you had!)

    …come again? That’s 4 days after the whipping.

    A small diameter “switch” IS like the business end of a whip, and can cause severe damage, yes. But, I was frustrated by Chris Mathews as he kept calling it a “branch”.


    However inappropriate it is to beat a child, in any fashion, lt’s also inappropriate to “beat” a society with misinformed, or just plain idiotic propaganda, from any side.


    ISIL, for example is ISIL, NOTISIS”, as the area they’re claiming is “the Levant”, not just Syria. Yet, both left and right wing press folks insist on ISIS.


    The issue is ignorance and propaganda, vs facts. The facts are that these guys all need psych counseling, not argument, but a LOT of Americans prone to violence, and/or encouraging violence, in the home, or abroad, could use some counseling as well.

    “Some people only ever read the first half of Dickens novels, because that’s their favorite part.’ Violence is glossed over in America at so many levels, and even promoted by the NRA=GOP. America shrugs off gun promotion and worship at the expense of 30,000 slaughtered Americans, and 100,000 wounded a year. Child beating barely registers with the far right wing nut jobs. I know a few RWNJ’s on this site who would like it returned along with school prayer.
