    Need advice

    I need something nice-ish to say to the parents of a small child where the best I could come up with is:
    "Well, I hope that when you take your kid hunting you dress him in orange…"

    If the Russians hacked Clinton's email then she is guilty of a felony for exposing classified information to a hostile government.

    Is this one of those kids where silence is not golden? Where it might be cause for anything between mild concern to "CALL 911! RIGHT NOW!!"?

    If this kid is like some that I have had to deal with, this phrase is appropriate:

    "And now you know why I wish birth control could be retroactive".

    Others I have used include:
    - "That kid sure says a lot about the child rearing skills of their parents, don't they?"
    - "Remember when parenting your children meant disciplining them?"
    - "I like my children like I like my dogs: Well trained, well behaved, and well mannered."
    - "The circus must be in town. I see one of the little freaks from the freak show has escaped."

    Feel free to use any or all of those as you see fit.

    You can call it a "impeachment inquiry" or anything else under the sun.
    Personally, there are only two ways to describe what House Democrats are doing:

    Sedition, and a coup.

    Plain and simple.

    Need more info to give a full response but from the way it's sounding, I'd say:

    So you're gonna leave him home when you go hunting right?
    Is he/she too young to drop off at the mall?
    I have this great hunting game they can download on their phone and play. No need to waste time going outside.
    Life is full of give and take. Give thanks and take nothing for granted!

    Sorry, I don't understand the context. Is this because they are such poor shots that they may shoot their own kid? Is it because they have been taking him hunting and he's dressed in feathers or deer hide? What's the "problem" you are trying to warn against?

    Yeah, I see where I wasn't clear. But now I can't think of a way of explaining it without saying things I don't want to say. This was not one of my better ideas.
    In fact, the guy holding the ballon is looking pretty bright right now.
    Which balloon?

    This is where the art of Sarcasm comes into play. What we need to ascertain is what the approximate intelligence of the parents are. Seeing as that is their offspring, I'm not expecting much.
