    That wouldn't even make sense as an answer to his inane comment either though, since there's no indication the father was supporting the notion of a dress code. Agree on your general point though.

    When you get right down to it, the kid had to turn his T shirt inside out for a day, then the superintendent straightened up the issue. Now Faux makes it national news and it takes over the RW blogoshpere. Oh the outrage...

    As I saw it, the father was asking for the dress code to be changed, to allow the t-shirt - perhaps, he should have asked for the dress code to be abandoned, not changed, then some wouldn't have the canard about this being big government versus small government.

We have no way of knowing based on the information given.

    The T shirt was never against the dress code. A teacher misintereped it, the superintendent corrected the situation, and Faux news has another outrage.

    Which is where the whole thing gets silly since the shirt in question does not violate the dress code and the father never bothered to actually, you know, check that before going to the media. There is so much stupid in this whole thing it is amazing.

    So you can show where the teacher is a liberal? Bet you can't. Face it, you made an assumption based on no facts.

    don't fault the father

    his kid (reluctantly) complied with the (over)enforcement of the rules

    no reason not to believe his kid was being denied the ability to wear his attire for bogus reasons

    Well, to be fair....highlighting that shouldn't be a problem. It exposes the liberal hyper sensitivity and foolishness.

    The problem here, the really really big problem here is not the shirt, it is not the dress code, it is not a liberal teacher going nuts about the image of an assualt rifle. It is not that it took the super a day or two to fix it. The problem here is clearly Fox news searching for an outrage, every day, 24hours a day 7 days a week. This story did not even make the local papers. It is stupid and meaningless. We only heard of it so Fox can stir up the RW nutjobs out there looking for something to get all stirred up about. Another example of those damn libs in our school system hating on our God, Country and Corps. This is an outrage, but it is not the outrage Fox is pushing.
