    I am not thrilled with any of them, but with the respublicans playing the game of who can make the most outlandish statement ever I have to take notice of their antics.

Since neither the girl nor her fellow students can vote, it seems somewhat provocative to begin with. My opinion is all political apparel of any sort should be banned from schools since it has no place there. My freedom of speech would allow me to wear a shirt glorifying Hitler out in public but I doubt any public school would allow it as it would be considered disruptive.


    I don't think that a shirt with the name of either candidate rises to the level of a shirt with Hitler on it.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

Just because you are a partisan hypocrite, doesn't mean everyone else is. And you are incorrect that the only issue the student experienced was with the teacher. A young woman walking down the street of a bad neighborhood drunk and in a bikini at 3am doesn't give anyone permission to rape her but it sure isn't a very intelligent thing to do.

    You're having a big problem with your equivalencies.

    People do, but why would she do it? Is she known to be an attention-seeker?

    Not really, you are just having a comprehension problem. The Hitler example is meant to show that students in school do NOT have the same freedom of speech rights that adults do. If the school determined all political apparel was disruptive, they could prohibit it. The example of the young woman was merely to illustrate the old principle that just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. If the girl ends up getting beaten up over this incident, as she claims she is fearful will happen, I think it outweighs the questionable gain of wearing a shirt parroting her parents views in an environment where it is unlikely she swayed anyone's voting preference.

    Here's the report from KSDK TV... Based on this, the teacher needs to be fired and based on the harassment the girl is now receiving, her and her family should now be able to choose a new school for the girl, with all tuition and expenses paid for by that school district.




    And people wonder why the American public education system sucks so bad and why people like myself hate the teachers unions.

    Let's keep it going... shall we?



    Notice how Fox News is covering this? Where are the reports from CNN and MSNBC?
