What's YOUR favorite form of parental discipline?

If you're anything like that guy in North Carolina whose 15-year-old daughter bad-mouthed him on Facebook, the answer to that question is a no-brainer.

You simply go to your gun cabinet (assuming you bother to keep it locked up), get your favorite 45, lock and load one full clip and have at it (on the laptop she used, that is. Not the kid.)

Let's for the moment put aside the fact that this nut used a deadly weapon on a perfectly good computer when all he had to do was take it away from her.

Isn't the way he handled this whole thing on exactly the same level as his daughter? She's fifteen. She's not supposed to be making adult decisions just yet. But he's supposedly an adult who should be thinking like one.

But now here's the kicker. Millions of people watched this event on YouTube and of those, fully three quarters actually approved of what he did.

What am I missing here? Is it me? Am I over analyzing this thing? I just don't get it.
