Stupid People

This lady made a video of the "unusual" discipline methods used on her adopted son. The kid comes from Russia where it seems kids are beat up, sold as sex slaves, starved, and I saw a picture of one being thrown to wolves. Needless to say the Russians are quite upset about the child abuse. I suppose they are quite nice to their little tykes after the vodka wears off.
This would be like Islamists being upset about sexism or spousal abuse. Ok, I know there are guidelines. (You can only beat your wife with a "RUBBER" hose. If you use a 2x4 you will be tortured for two hours, but it is ok to run down your daughter with a car if she wears eyeliner.)
But I digress....
Perhaps the lady thought Dr. Phil was a real doctor?
Frankly I don't care that she poured hot sauce in the kid's mouth or forced him into a cold shower. I've heard of worse things. It is kind of ironic that the video was a plea for help and naturally it got her in trouble. Oh no, CSD couldn't show up with a Dr. Spock book or a bad of doggie treats. No, no, no, that is not the way to teach the peasants. They need to feel the force of the law...
What would have been really funny is if she would have used a dog shock collar or made him sit in a corner and watch Oprah.
In other news...
Farming, blah blah blah, less than spectacular yields, blah, blah, blah, problems, blah, blah, blah.... Someone paid me, someone didn't pay me, I'm behind, it is hot, I need 1.2 millon dollars, blah, blah, blah...Various technical tractor terms, followed by specific farming practices, photos of my daughter doing something I think is cute, blah, blah, blah...
And there is a weeks worth of blogging in one paragraph!

  1. Co-incidentally this news item came on tv news just as I was eating dinner/reading email and reading the readers digest condensed version of The Lazy Farmer.. It looks like they are trying to blame the Dr. Phil show for the mother's extreme actions.

  2. Ralph, hope you enjoyed the condensed version. I've discovered most days follow the same pattern with random treats thrown in to keep you pushing the little lever...
    SOmehow, her doing it just to get on the show is what makes it child abuse-in my mind.
