    In all fairness, he's 24 and responsible for himself. I wouldn't blame the parents for his actions, anymore than I'd condemn someone because of their parents.

    so then Paris Hilton's behavior isn't her parents fault for lack of discipline?

    This kid is the son of Al Gore, he's a reflection of his dad. thats how the media will see this.. oh wait... the liberal media will probably not even mention this story......never mind

    Paris Hilton's predicaments may be a result of parenting, but they are now owned by her. The parents weren't in jail.

    Don’t you remember Bush’s daughters?

    http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2001-05-31-bushdaughters.htm

    President Bush's 19-year-old twin daughters were charged Thursday with underage alcohol offenses after an incident in a popular restaurant known for its Tex-Mex food and ice-cold margaritas.

    That's right. Besides, he probably didn't inhale.

    I'm sure. :rofl: I remember getting a note from the high school regarding my son's Ritalin, (like Aderall) to keep an eye on it, kids were using it as it was 'better than speed.' Truth is, it's prescription speed.

    Ritalin is very weak. In order to get an effect like speed one would have to use a hell of a lot more than any prescription would provide. I used it legally for several years, it was supposed to help keep me alert and to be able to focus. Lets just say it did neither very well.

    And it is tightly controlled, you couldn't get refills, the doctor had to write a new prescription every month for me.

    In order to face reality you have to have your wits about you and your head clear - and we know how liberals deal with and handle reality.
