Wow, does that family have some issues or what? I do know that Will Hayden was arrested for being a pedophile. I know Stephanie first claimed the accusations against her father were false and now claims that he did, in fact, molest her as a child. Now Stephanie Hayden and her husband, Kris Ford have been arrested for spanking a kid so hard it left marks. This rant isn’t going to be about Will Hayden and his pedophile issues or Stephanie’s child abuse excuses. What this rant will be about are all the sick, moronic people supporting the abuse of children.
I am not saying for a second that I think spanking a kid is child abuse. I am saying that there is difference between a simple spanking and beating your kid so hard that it leaves scars or marks that are visible hours later, you know, like when the cops arrive.
I read a comment by some dumbass who was supporting the abuse Stephanie and Kris committed against their child. Or rather allegedly committed. This moron said that spanking is how we learned right from wrong. Wow, this is how stupid people are. This is the violent place we live in. We do not learn right from wrong by spanking our children. What spanking teaches them is to not do somethings out of a fear of punishment. That isn’t learning right from wrong. That is teaching fear and nothing else.
It is the responsibility of our parents to teach our children right from wrong and if necessary to punish them. What most parents do wrong is to skip the teaching part and go straight to punishment. Our child screws up and what do we do? We tell them they did wrong and we punish them. We go straight from the child’s mistake to punishment. The kid learns real quick that being honest with their parents will get them in trouble and that some things will get them hurt. What they haven’t learned is why they got in trouble. Kids don’t know why what they did is wrong, they only know now that their parents say what they did is wrong. So, chances are they are going to continue do it and just not tell their parents about it.
For example, let’s say two different kids steal money from their mothers purse. The first kid is spanked, told stealing is wrong is spanked. The second kid is told that stealing is also wrong but the parent takes the time to explain why stealing is wrong. Which kid do you think really learned a lesson? The kid that was just spanked, only knows that stealing is wrong. But, has no idea why. Kid’s don’t inherently know why something is wrong. They need to be taught this. Show a kid why their behavior is bad and it will change them. They will grow and learn and be respectful human beings.
People for some reason think that teaching kids right from is like how they learn not to touch the stove top when it’s on. They touch it, they get burned, end of story. Even that doesn’t really work because sooner or later they are going to burn their hand when they stove top is off and have no clue why. However, had you taught them that the stove was hot because fire creates heat and what it heats can take a long time to cool down. Now they know. Now they learned something about fire. Now you they won’t get burned again. And, if they do burn themselves again, you know your kid is stupid and needs extra attention, so please get him the attention he needs.
Teach kids, they learn by example and education and not through violence.

I haven’t seen every show this fall. But, I have broken my rule this fall TV season and started watching some TV shows before the season has ended. I normally won’t watch a new show until it’s first season is over because too many times I get hooked on a show and then some dumbass executive cancels it. Some good example of this are, Surface, Invasion, Firefly, and the one that killed me. The one that bothered me the most was Miracles.
Miracles (Available on DVD thankfully) was one of the best TV shows ever. It got cancelled because the executives at ABC at the time were complete morons. The was preempted almost every week it was supposed to air. ABC had breaking news all the time over the Iraq war so anytime someone farted in Iraq ABC went live. These idiots even preempted the show for a special about Michael Jackson. This was long before he had died, he was just crazy MJ back then and ABC decided yet again to air Miracles at a later date. Show could gain an audience and they cancelled it. The irony is that it’s final airing, over 5 million viewers. ABC still cancels it.
So, I don’t watch TV shows in their first season. I am not going to get hooked and left hanging because some idiots that believe if a show isn’t an immediate hit, it must be cancelled. If that were true some of most beloved shows would have never maid it, little shows, like Cheers and Night Court to name a few.
However I have been a little lax this year and last. This year I have decided to rant about the new shows I really like or that I think have some potential. My hope is that the 2.5 people that actually read this article will give these shows a try and maybe tell their friends about them. TV Shows don’t have long, some shows after their first airing are already on the bubble for not getting high enough ratings.
So here’s some new shows worth look.
It airs Tuesday nights on ABC. It’s about a guy that for some unknown reason has been alive for over 200 years. He can die but he comes back immediately and always in water for some reason. Now he is a medical examiner for the city of New York and helps a detective solve crimes. It’s Castle if Castle was more serious, never died and wasn’t as goofy. And, I mean goofy in a good way, Castle is one of my most favorite shows EVER!
I really love this show so far. It’s got smart characters, good stories and good mysteries. It would be shame is this show got cancelled.
How to get away with Murder
It airs Thursdays on ABC. It’s about a college professor who is also a high price defense attorney. The acting is great, the stories are a little hard to follow at least the first episode was. It goes from present time to future time or maybe the future flashes are current time and the present time is the past, I don’t know? As I said, it’s a little confusing and you have to really pay attention or you won’t even get what’s going on. I was glued to my TV watching it on my DVR and shit happened a couple of times and I had to think, “Wait, who was that again?” But, still the show has some potential. I love the main character, she’s flawed and some of those flaws aren’t really good flaws. Another good show you should check out.
Just watched the show last night and I have to say I was at first disappointed when I realized it was only a half hour show. That worries me and I will tell you why. The idea is too good for a half hour show. This happened to me last year when I saw the first episode of The Crazy Ones. I knew it was going to get cancelled. The shows concepts need a full hour, you can’t pack it all into 22 minutes and the heart of the show gets lost. I even said so on their Facebook page after watching it the first time. Sure enough, cancelled. This show, same thing. It’s a good show, worth watching, funny, witty but the themes need an hour. If NBC doesn’t change it, it’s going to get cancelled. But, we’re talking about NBC here, the once great network is run by complete morons so I am positive they will do everything possible to make sure all their good shows are cancelled. It airs Thursday nights.
I watched the first two episodes and loved it. It was action packed, entertaining and both episodes had me shaking my head wonder how they were over so soon? The show just flies by. It’s about a group of 20 somethings who are off the charts smart. They are hired by Homeland Security to help solve problems. The action can be over the top sometimes but you can’t help but suspend disbelief and just go along for the ride. Fun, show with heart. Highly recommend. It airs Tuesdays on CBS.
These are just the ones that I have seen so far. I am looking forward to seeing The Mysteries of Laura, Houdini, Black-ish, Stalker, Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, and Z Nation. However, I will probably just wait and download the whole seasons when they are over or wait for the DVD’s
If there’s a show you like, talk about it, tell people. Specially if it’s a new show. If you don’t talk about it or don’t hear others talking about it, it will be cancelled. So even if you don’t like the shows I mentioned, there must be some new shows you do like, talk about them. Set your DVR’s even if you don’t watch them. How to get away with Murder was the most DVR’d show this fall season. They actually track that stuff, creepy, I know. But, what’s on your DVR matters.
