    Well, that is true, but the odds are with me.

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".
    As a "Con" I would have made him remove it too, IF it was actually against the dress code. School isn't the place for activism, making political statements or exposing your affiliations through dress code violations. Change the shirt or suffer the consequences.

    school isn't the place for activism, so you would actively implement your own dress code policy to show them.

    wow.

    No, but it takes our mind off the sequester mess! Perpetually outrage apparently requires new material from time to time...

    still, the dress code itself amounts to activism.

    I'm a stickler for dress codes and I've seen some instances where parents do try to skirt the dress coee just to seemingly stir up crap.

    good thing school is no place for activism. We don't have to worry about you stirring things up and by trying to implement a dress code.
