Out of anger I told him to get his act together, Or I was shipping him the hell off.

He hits, slaps, back talks, bullies his younger siblings, doesn't respect anything or anyone.

though helpful advice would be appreciated

We can only do time outs or take things away.
Neither have any real effect on him. there's no corporal punishment allowed in our state, not that would help anyways

Parenting. You're doing it wrong.

Seriously. Unless he has some sort of emotional or developmental problems, his bad behavior is on you because you allow it. Time outs don't work? Do them anyway. If you're doing it right it will work eventually. I get so sick of parents who give up and let their kids act wild because they tried a time out a few times and it didn't work. It will work when you're consistent and he knows it.

And if he is behaving that badly he probably needs some positive attention from you. He's crying out for it. Pay attention to your kid and don't let him run wild.

I don't allow it. I still do the time outs.
I don't just let him run wild. I can't watch him 24 7. I have to nurse the baby ,use the bathroom, make lunch, take out trash etc. He takes full advantage of the time that he's not being supervised. As for attention he gets it, we play games and spend time together. I'm normally the kill them with kindness type. So I'm not a big bad wolf all the time.
Thanks for your useless insight

I love when people ask for advice, then get really defensive when they get some. Especially after inviting people to 'bash away'....

Useless insight? I forgot you're mom of the year. All good moms threaten to send their kids away when they realize they've created a monster. How's this for advice? Ship the kid off. He'll be better off. He will always feel abandoned but its better than ending up dead or in jail because mommy dearest is too lazy to teach him right from wrong.

 If time outs don't work can you make him clean? Clean until he can not take it any more. Washing floors with just soap and water or doing the laundry, dusting, washing walls, raking the yard. Not exactly corporal punishment but not fun either.
