Anyone else sick of the anti-smacking legislation debate?

September 2, 2009

Anyone else sick of the anti-smacking legislation debate? We’ve got to have the world’s dumbest politicians… after the referendum came back with nearly 90% of those who voted wanting the law changed, we have a government too stupid to realise the amount of support they’d drum up by actually listening to the voters.

We have the Green/Red Party on the pig-stupid left,  in particular the trollish Sue Bradford, unable to tell the difference between a smack and a beating. Either that, or Bradford’s Marxist roots are showing and she just wants to tell us that the only way is the State’s way and fuck you all.

We have the likes of Larry Baldock on the right,  too stupid to insist that the referendum be held in an election year, and equally stupid if he thought that the referendum itself would make the blindest bit of difference in a parliamentary system where kissing the arses of minor parties is more important than listening to voters.

John Key seems to believe that he can go through his political career not actually believing in anything, relying instead on an affable grin. I’m going to have start calling him Jandal John because of his constant flip-flops… He was against the anti-smacking bill at one stage, and now isn’t ‘because it’s working’.  I think the 16 children murdered since the legislation was passed would tend to disagree with him on that one though.

The simple truth is that no amount of legislation will prevent piece of shit parents from abusing their children. Similarly, it would appear, no amount of public disquiet will change the laws in a supposedly democratic nation. My advice? Fuck ’em all – concentrate on raising your kids yourself, teach them to be free-thinking individuals with a sense of personal responsibility, ambition and a desire to do the right thing. Please don’t let Sue Bradford know I advocate free-thinking though, out of spite she might visit my sons and put them off women for life.
