Hi Allie, sounds like you have a good but very frustrated guy in your household. There are probably many other things that he’s not able to cope with in life so it comes out as anger and bitterness. When we act so immaturely we do it purely out of weakness and helplessness. The dog is just the easiest target for him. Here’s what you could consider. Read two posts here: “How to Control Your Anger By Setting Boundaries,” and the latest post by Lynne on Confronting your Angry Spouse. You’re telling your kids that their dad’s behaviour is not acceptable but the person who needs to hear it most is your man. If he’s an open minded guy and wants to look into anger management techniques then send him the 7 Secrets Guide that you see in the upper right corner of this blog. All of these things combined should give you some good tools to move forward. Give the doggie extra love for the abuse and ask your husband to apologize to him at some point in the future. Otherwise they’ll switch roles in next life, and it’ll be your hubby the one who gets kicked in the ass. 🙂
And that’s just one improbability. In order to vote for acquittal, you would need to accept everything outlined above. Some of these coincidences are individually believable—it’s quite possible that both eyewitnesses honestly convinced themselves they saw The Kid, when they actually just saw a vague figure. But as Bugliosi notes of both Simpson and Oswald, in the real world, you cannot have that much damning evidence pointing at your guilt and still be innocent, unless all of it was deliberately manufactured. (The one place where Bugliosi is shaky is that he won’t concede that some of the evidence in the Simpson case may have been planted by cops who genuinely believed . was guilty, but wanted to seal the deal.) As stirring as it is to watch Fonda upend his fellow jurors’ assumptions and prejudices, their instincts were sound. The Kid is almost certainly guilty. What a hell of a downbeat, realistic twist ending that would be, eh? Had the movie been made during the Watergate era, maybe that’s how it would have turned out.
