    Re: Father wants school dress code changed after son asked to remove Marines T-shirt

    I can find nothing about it in the local papers, which makes me wonder. I does not sound like the shirt really was in violation of the dress code. And certainly not because of some USA hating liberal in education hating on my Marine Corps, like Fox and the rest are alluding to. Fox does bother me, but now the RW blogosphere has gotten hold of it I am having a hard time finding a creditable source.

    I find this quote interesting:


    Brett McPherson, the school’s principal, referred questions to Genoa-Kingston Superintendent Joe Burgess, who reiterated that the shirt is not in violation of the district’s dress policy.

    do everyone - mostly yourself - a favor and read the article before continuing to discuss it.

    So no violation, just an emotional, over reaction, by another pansy lib that has their sensibilities offended by having to acknowledge that our military uses guns.....10-4

    good call, spiker

    but appreciate your husband's dark sense of humor

    and nothing other than a teacher enforcing a rule in a way it was not intended/expected to be enforced

    bet the kid gets to wear his shirt going forward

    Could someone explain me how being annoyed at a PUBLIC, tax payer funded schools dress code = not liking smaller government? Let alone being annoyed at a teacher improperly enforcing said dress code of said public tax payer funded school?

    The teacher's political beleifs are not mentioned in the article, so you are just making **** up to fit your desired narrative. It could just as likely be a crackpot conservative teacher who never actually bothered to read the rules and is a stickler for following the exact letter of what they believe to be the rule, and the smart liberal superintendent pointing out that the rule is not what is claimed. We have no way of knowing based on the information given.

    Daniel McIntyre, 44, of Genoa, told FoxNews.com that his 14-year-old son, Michael, was asked to remove the T-shirt by eighth-grade teacher Karen Deverell during reading class at Genoa-Kingston Middle School on Monday. Deverell, citing the school’s dress code, said the garment’s interlocking rifles was problematic and had to be removed from sight, McIntyre said.

    I though the cons were all about following the rules and laws of society? I mean, just remove the damn shirt.

    Like the cons are for smaller governemet, i guess it's just another myth.


    i just love this part:

    “He was upset, he couldn’t understand it,” he continued. “He couldn’t understand why a teacher would make him do that.”

    LOL, playing the "VICTIM".
    Cons, much like libs, believe in changing the rules when they are bad rules....

    I think the belief is that if you support any rule, such as for example in this case a dress code, then you support "big government". I swear it is happening an aweful lot lately where instead of arguing actual positions, people argue against the most extreme position they can find on the other side.

    So you just accept idiotic rules because someone tells you to? A bunch of bitties sit around a table and decide that anything that respects the country is detrimental to the moral wellbeing of the school community and you just accept it and say, hey, it's the rules, you gotta follow it. Pathetic, but I'm sure if the kid had a "Yes we Can" t-shirt on, you'd be storming the Supreme Court demanding the kid have his free speech rights protected.
