Liberal social scoundrels use the explosive issue to meddle in standard child rearing practice - the use of spankings.
The unintended consequence? Responsible parents going to jail. And their errant offspring grow up wild and feeling entitled - you know, like liberals' kids do.
A Florida dad called the sheriff New Years day to make sure the paddling of his 12-year-old daughter was proper and sanctioned.
Noel Sheriff is Sheriff of Okeechobee county who says: 'parents are seeking guidance on how to deal with their child. You are entitled to paddle your child, whether you use your hand, you use your belt or a paddle within reason as long as your paddling the buttocks.'
Sheriff Sheriff? Seriously?
