Oops, a little side-tracked. Oh well, didn't hurt anything:

[Serious]
  This election is just too emotion-driven. I mean, we here at this board have been slinging awful stuff at each other here at the OT. Can we really be surprised that people have been tearing down signs and getting arrested for going into a rally as an opposition? We've been tearing at each others digital throats and then express surprise when this stuff happens. When we start to take these things personal, that's when little girls start crying and a woman gets arrested for tresspassing at an event that she had a ticket to.

   These issues may be important to you, but they aren't you. In my experience, a little detachment goes a long way.

So, who wants to be my grudge-mate?

Things to NOT do with your three year old.

Take the child to a bar where you expect to be in a fight.

Take the Child out on a road trip when you feel a case of road rage comming on.

Any place you expect a possible violent encounter.

The guy did this even if this was his first time I would have no sympathy for this happening in front of his daughter Because he brought her there. IF it happened in a another reasonable public place I would feel sorry for him right now I am just glad the child was unhurt.

Agreed 100%. Poor little girl, maybe child welfare should step in.

Hmm. That's a great bit of publicity. Handy that the photographer was there to catch it.

Shame on the people for upsetting the girl,

shame on the father for putting her in that situation.

Especially since he knew - due to his well documented public history - that he would be facing violent reaction to his underhanded tactic - I think his kids should be taken away from him and he should be charged with Child Endangerment

SO LOW! A new Low for the dirty underhanded ones!!!!

Using Children as political shills for reverse-negative-publicity - Karl Rove would be proud enough to goose step around his office - and that so-called father should be ashamed!!!!

How come I never got a grudge mate? I've been a member for eight months! ;)


On a serious note, I don't think blame can be assigned to just one person/group here. The girl never should have been brought along, but it wasn't right for her sign to be ripped up, either.

People these days. *shakes head and sighes*

You feel like me?  :eek4:  What ever is the world coming too?  :p

Wait a sec....Are you saying I have issues of rage?  ;)  :p  (j/k)

As for the issue in question.... (you knew I was going to have to comment on it, didn't you?)

As for this guy bringing his 3 year old daughter, who looks so cute BTW, to a opposition rally...WTF was he thinking?  :angry:

I'm not trying to imply that children should NOT be allowed there, but come on...use common sense people. It's similar to that family taking their infant to the movie AVP...Or, more to the point,...going to a Yankee game waving a sign proclaiming "Go Braves! I mean, a pitcher threw a chair at a heckler and hit the heckler's wife, breaking her nose.

Point is: there are some things you just don't due....this is one of them. Is it right? Of course not.

Now, as to the issue of personal grudges.... *grins evilly as he sharpens his sword* Can I get in on this?

Knowingly placing one's child in a hostile and dangerous situation is reckless endangerment, right?

This kind of political prostitution of children ticks me off as bad as the religious prostitution of them.

Well, if Kerry wins I'm seriously going to look into moving to a different country. Hell, Iraq would be safer then America will be if Flip-flop Kerry is the President.

Kerry as President: Week One. "There is still a reward out for Bin Laden"
                             Week Two: "There is no reward for Bin Laden."
                             Week Three: "Bin Laden has just been appointed as civil rights counselor for Afghanistan. And I've just reappointed Saddam as President of Iraq again."
