Student misses rare opportunity to LEGALLY punch Congressman in mouth

I have a rule in life (just now adopted) that if ever given an opportunity to legally punch a U.S. Congressman in the mouth, I will jump at it and suffer the consequences later. 

See Youtube videos “Congressman Bob Ethridge (D-NC) Assaults Student on Washington Sidewalk.”  By the way, he did not “assault” the student, he committed a battery on him.  I know, the lay person understanding is that he assaulted the student.  We use the phrase “assault and battery” to mean the same thing. But an assault is to put the person in imminent fear of being harmed, while a battery is any unauthorized touching of another person.  To pull your arm back with cocked fist and threaten to punch someone is an assault.  To actually  hit them is a battery. 

It is unlawful to intentionally touch another person without a lawful excuse.  The student had the right while the Congressman held his hand, and later held him behind his head, to defend himself.  I don’t blame the kid for not punching the Congressman–I would not have done so either when I was that age.  But by God, if it happened after today I sure as  hell hope that I will.  If that imperial sounding attitude does not make your blood boil when he says “Who are you?” then you have some serious issues that need to be dealt with.  

Who are you?!! Bap.  Youtube video should instead be titled “Congressman decked with stiff straight overhand left to his jaw.”  Millions would now be cheering, and also likely scrambling to raise money for the student’s defense fund.

  1. Well, knowing the proclivities of some of our congress critters, I would wonder if he was making a sexual advance towards the student. /sarc/

    Really…the kid should have coldcocked the SOB, then yelled rape. These friggin people have no sense of the fact that THEY WORK FOR US…not the other way around.

  2. As a freshman in high school, I remember a life changing experience in science class…

    Our science teacher, Mr. Uhl…

    He was the football coach, too…

    The coach was buff, and Ms Mirsch, liked to spend time in his office, between classes…

    I’m certain he’s long dead… so there cain’t be… no lawsuits involved…

    Hell… he’d have to be a hundred and ten…if someone was gonna sue him…!

    He picked that arsehole kid up by the front of his shirt…carried his shirt, body, butt and all…over to the blackboard…he had the jerk six inches off the ground…and slammed his head and arse against the wall and told him to go back to his desk…!

    Damn we were hopin’ fer blood on the floor…
    The guy was a real prick…!

    Life is full of disappointments…
    Yah just gotta keep on…keepin’ on…

    Olde soldier sends the very best…!
