I hit my dad the other day...sad postSubmitted by freespeech468 on Thu, 10/03/2013 - 08:55
I sincerely live my life by the non aggression principle. I never hit anyone in my family. My dad is a war vet and a democrat.
The other day he was speaking to my grandmother about their government checks. they were relived due to the Shutdown.
My dad made a stupid comment: Its the Republicans! They should be thrown out in the real world with the poor people.
As a republican I interject. Its both parties, Democrats Republicans whats the difference.
He replied, Republicans are for the RICH!
I said, You think the democrats work for you?
Yes he shouts. Obama is doing everything he can, but the republicans wont let him.
The Debate started to heat up.
I left the conversation meanwhile He approaches me again and says you better take down that flag from your room (gadsden flag), I dont like it.
I simply said no.
Well when you leave for work I'm taking it down, he said. I replied - spoken like a true democrat.
The argument heats up again.
At some point, he rips the flag off my wall.
I try what ever I could to salvage it and in anger I punch him.
He was in shock, I was in remorse. Talk about a shitty day at work.
Came back home. apologized, and he forgave. We made plans to watch a movie... I picked World War Z.
