“I am so sick of people calling this pedophilia - it is NOT unless: Pedophilia or paedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to "prepubescent" children, generally age 11 years or younger. As a medical diagnosis, specific criteria for the disorder extends the cut-off point for "prepubescence to age 13" A person who is diagnosed with pedophilia must be at least 16 years of age, but adolescents who are 16 years of age or older must be at least five years older than the "prepubescent" child before the attraction can be diagnosed as pedophilia.”
“I'm not thinking its funny when you try to intimidate a baby and are role modeling behavior that this child has already learned to emulate - hasn't a clue the problems the child will have in school with this learned behavior - people will not like this kids - but the parents won't be to blame when the kid is older for the learned bad behavior”

“Lighten up. This used to be a daily activity at the table with my kids. My husband and I would talk and they would gibber incoherently, and we all laughed and had a great time. It's called communication and interaction.”

“Oh, give me a break. Whenever I see an adorable video like this, there's always people who find fault in a perfectly innocent interaction. Ugh. Some people can't live without outrage. Well, there are plenty of REAL things to be outraged over. Get all indignant about those issues, where people (or animals) are actually being hurt. You know, usually when Republicans complain about "political correctness", I roll my eyes because it's obvious they just want to justify and dismiss bigotry. But then I see comments like yours, and I have to say, maybe political correctness is out of control. I mean, no parent is straight out of a parenting self-help book. No one's childhood is devoid of arguments and not-so-perfect or inappropriate moments with their parents. I mean, honestly. If we all listened to to what you're saying, family life would be without color. It would be boring, a shadow of a childhood where parents are just tiptoeing around their children, scared to "damage" them or hurt their fragile psyches. lol. Children are incredibly resilient. If this little girl is hurt by this interaction, there's something seriously wrong with her, and it has nothing to do with what's happening in this video.”

“OMG..... So, Denise, make sure your BABIES are "properly intimidated" by you when you RAISE YOUR VOICE AT THEM.
Damn, your comment says a whole heck of a lot more about your shortcomings than the parents on this vid.....and it doesn't sound good for your kids.”

“out of curiosity, what is your earliest memory? I am guessing you can't remember what you did at about 9 months old, which is about how old this baby appears to be”

“I think you've missed the mark on this. I see a child who will know the difference between joking around, and seriousness. This is banter, not belligerence.”

“oh please... let it go and don't try to over analyze this cute interaction...”

“LOL. Reminded me of my daughter who used to carry on long arguments with her dad and I over all sorts of things. Looks like she's learning to hold her own. My daughter is a successful adult, owns two thriving businesses, is a wife, a mother of three and has hundreds of friends. This baby is not the slightest bit intimidated.”

“I told my father I was going to cut off his nose and then in half and then throw him the dumpster when I was that age. My dad loved arguing with us as kids. We are all fine and i still haven't cut him in half.”

“I think you need to ease up a little...It's a goofy video of a faked argument with a child. The father is seen smiling throughout, and the woman behind the camera-presumably the child's mother-is heard laughing throughout. No intimidation to be seen; quite the opposite: the child appears amused and happy to be interacting with dad. As for implying that she'll have a troubled future ahead of her-that's absurd. She doesn't appear to be any more than a year and a half old at MOST, and yet you - with NO knowledge of her family situation and setup- are bold enough to say that "people will not like this kid- but the parents won't be to blame when the kid is older for the learned bad behavior." Come on. You don't know ANYTHING about this family, and yet you're judging their parenting and making a bold, sweeping prediction for their child's future? That just makes you seem judgmental and arrogant, in my humble opinion.”
“This sounds like there are more sinister motives than "assessing" kids, especially if you have no right to opt out and are pretty much being "forced" to participate. The states are forcibly taking away your rights as a parent to say no to their agendas.
This situation also seems to be an incredible WASTE of tax payer resources that could be more wisely spent.”
“To me, his press statements about Ft. Lee not needing 3 lanes, maybe one - shows his guilt - not to mention his arrogance during that conference - just what I seen in the John Engler admin - but he got away with it - they usually do - so Christie's karma bus has arrived”

“"christies Karma bus has arrived"- great quote. I shall use it and fave you for it. I think you are right on target in this.
I just visited your profile pages. Like what you have to say. I hope that your posts are an indication of much more to come.
When I find a like minded soul, I fan them and invite them to fan back to broaden my HP network. Mutual fanning puts us into each others HP network.
So, if you feel so inclined... fan back”

“For those not skilled in the art of forensic interviewing - here's a clue - when he made statements that he wasn't sure they needed three lanes open- maybe only one - BINGO - Game OVER - HE KNEW!”

“What crap! As a Federal employee (and when I was a state employee as well) we have it hammered into our heads to NEVER give anyone your passwords - let alone some "contractual" employee -ridiculous!!!
I MIGHT believe one person would be that stupid - but this story is such bs!!! Anyone with half a brain would have questioned and reported this as I have NEVER at any job had anyone ask for my passwords - at the very least. that would put me on high alert as to me being set up to get fired- as this is no joke with federal and state concerning passwords and information”
“It is amazing ANYONE would think the UN should have ANY say in what goes on in AMERICA”
drchris1 on Nov 5, 2013 at 20:06:29
What is amazing is the poison Republicans reflexively throw whenever the UN is mentioned, just like Pavlov's dog.
Did you even bother to read the piece before weighing in? If you had, you would discover no mandates for us. Instead, it cajoles other nations to follow our lead, our gold standard of a law, the Americans With Disablilites Act.
Republicans hating any kind of progress is astounding. And your ancestors would weep at what their party has become.”
“Any one who goes against the medical lies gets their license revoked - are you aware of what happened to the FIRST doctor in 1847 who once said you need to wash your hands before and between surgeries???? Now its accepted as truth!!!
“Funny, we had Polio almost completely eradicated... and then people like you show up. You know, Jonas Salk believed in his vaccine so much that he gave it to himself, his wife, and his children? I think I trust a man that believed in his science so much, he was willing to be a test subject for it. He also refused to patent it so it would become more widely available instead of the BILLIONS he could've made off of it.
Also: You probably think that Big Pharma makes big bucks off of vaccines. That's not their money maker, they actually lose money on it.”
“Funny how no one cares about how "broken" the prison system is till they end up there - GIVES YOU A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE - I worked there and tried to bring issues to light - no one cares - you reap what you sow”
“Although I believe you attitude is ignorant and indicative of why your life sucks - "if" I were like you, which I am most assuredly not, I would say - "No pity" here for you.
I planned out my life and have great insurance, very good finances and even better - great health - not that I would ever take a pharmaceutical drug and I rarely need to go to a doctor at 57. So just because I lived my life differently than you should I be so callous as to mock you?
Just because it sucks to be you doesn't mean a decent, "normal" thinking person believes just because someone is in prison they deserve substandard care”
