If my wife were constantly tearing into me with her nails, kneeing me and twisting my pecker, I'd call her a crazy bitch too.
Violence is the great equalizer.
Unfortunately, it's been taken out of the hands of men. It's an effective de-balling by the courts.
Dr. Phil doesn't realize that verbal violence is this man's only course of action at this point, which never really does the trick with violent people. Of course, he's probably tip-toeing around the issue to avoid anything that might get his ass canned from the network, so I'll at least give him one star for being pragmatic.
The woman needs a healthy pop to the mouth, or an arm twisted up behind her back until she's begging for mercy. I know this is an unholy thing to say, and five years ago I would have been aghast that someone suggest physical violence against a woman . . . but it wasn't men that killed chivalry. And, unfortunately, the laws of nature seem to say that violence must be met and confronted with violence.
Alas, one more reason not to marry.
