That was SOOOOO my dad!

That is ok...I grew up knowing that HE was in charge!

Texas law gives me every right to protect myself, my family, and my property; and as far as I know, no one has ever been prosecuted in this great state for doing so using lethal force.

I do hope these morons are caught, not only to stop this from happening any more but for their own safety as well. And any parent of a teenager out there who doesn't know what their kid is doing--especially at night--should make an effort to find out!

And if they AINT going to straighten them out...if you don't want 10pm news exposure AND a hospital bill and lawyer fee, keep them out of Westcreek for goodness sake!!!

I had a tech school instructor who had a marksman ribbon in eraser throwing. Very good at getting one's attention.

For this vandalism situation, I think the shotgun is the right "attention getter"

Default Poor man's tazer.

For those who prefer a non-lethal method of protection, try filling up a Super Soaker with Pico-de-Gallo. Season those suckas!

When I was in the market for one, the salesman told me that if the sound of the chambering didn't make then turn and run, they deserved to get shot! Great advice!

The last sound someone vandalizing private property would hear would be: BOOM !!

I worked too hard for what I have and for those who would say "that's what insurance is for" they should be flogged. Do you know what happens when someone makes too many claims ??? 1. Your insurance goes WAY up or 2. You get cancelled. Not necessarily in that order.

My Father used psychology on my brother and I when we fought. He would tell us to pack our bags as we're going to a Boy's Home. We would be crying and packing. After we were done and waiting to go, he would finally "relent" with a stern warning and tell us to unpack our bags...we got pretty good a packing a suitcase. Another time when I was switched from public school to Catholic school in 4th grade, I received a "U" in conduct for the 1st semester. I then had to write a daily journal of what I did in class and have the teacher sign it. Two good things came from this. One, I received an "E" in conduct the next semester and improved my writing skills that would pay off later in life!

BTW: My father is now 84! Happy Father's Day Dad and THANKS!

Those WERE the days, right? When a parent was a PARENT, when you grew up KNOWING who was in charge, when what your parents did to you was FOR you, and legal...and most importantly, when we grew up knowing what was and was not allowed/tolerated/acceptable.

Now the kids call the shots, call the authorities if a teacher/parent dares to touch/question/correct them, and it all ends up in court being sorted out...I always laughed at how "lost this generation has become" came out of my dads mouth because we dressed in fringed leather, dressed and acted like Hippies and listened to Steppenwolf...but now I understand how each generation of parents look at the youth of today and think that!!!

WE HAVE BECOME OUR PARENTS!!! Thank GOD our parents were someone we admire and are pleased to have become!!!! Happy Fathers Day to all the Dad's (mine has been gone since 1975, so if your Dad is still alive, PLEASE give him an extra hug tomorrow for those of us who's dads are not here to give a hug to!)
