Trump is ignorant of Constitution

first_imgWhile at a rally in Moon Township, Penn., on March 10, the so-called president of our republic and leader of the free world once again displayed his ignorance. The human garbage Republicans want us to respect mentioned executing drug dealers. Once again, the cretin showed just how ignorant he is. I certainly think this would be cruel and unusual punishment, forbidden in the Constitution. His pal, Rodrigo Duterte, a despot who is praised by 45, has drug dealers, young and old, executed without due process on the streets of Manila, Philippines.I’d unequivocally say this murderer is a role model for the white supremacists, including 45.Paul SantoRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Car hits garage in Rotterdam Sunday morning; Garage, car burn Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

French MPs back (symbolic) ban on smacking children

first_imgFrance24.com 30 November 2018Family First Comment: Interesting approach – but still flawed“France’s bill would not sanction parents who continue to “discipline” their children as its main goal is “educational” – a way to encourage society to mend its views. But it will slap down a 19th-century addendum to the Civil Code’s definition of parental authority, which is read out to couples during their wedding vows and that specifically allows for “disciplining” children.”The French National Assembly voted Friday in favour of a largely symbolic ban on parents smacking their children, a practice which though condemned by the UN still enjoys widespread support in the country.The bill on “corporal punishment or humiliation” seeks to ensure that parental authority is exercised “without violence” of any sort, including “physical, verbal or psychological” violence.MPs voted it through 51-1 early Friday morning, after a late-night debate, and it will now pass to the Senate.The draft law was proposed by an MP from the centrist Democratic Movement party, Maud Petit, but received the backing of French President Emmanuel Macron’s party, La République en Marche, and was boosted by the health minister Agnès Buzyn and the Secretary of Equality, Marlène Schiappa.Previous governments have attempted to ban the practice, but have been thwarted by conservatives. Eric Ciotti, an MP from conservative party The Republicans, said it was “propaganda legislation” pushing “pseudo official morality”.According to the non-governmental Childhood Foundation, 85 percent of French parents resort to corporal punishment. Schools have long been banned from physically punishing children, but not parents.READ MORE: https://www.france24.com/en/20181130-france-mps-national-assembly-back-ban-smacking-childrenlast_img read more
