    Not exactly like the gangbangers that sport colors go to school.

    So what's the point?
    From your post:
    And who concocted this travesty? a progressive of course - one sympathetic to the destruction the the United States of America due to racial or religious sympathy.
    The travesty is the result of the school requiring uniforms, ergo, school uniforms must be a progressive idea to destroy America.

    Either that, or the whole story is a molehill masquerading as a mountain.

    I said it was a form of conformity - an idea I don't support.

    And you're a libertarian? and support such nonsense? conformity?

    Nope.

    It's generally the authoritarian right wing that supports such things.

    I'm not the one defending the school via authoritarian action - you are - furthermore you're defending 1984is attire - figure it out before you even attempt to call yourself a libertarian....... you're a communist not an individualist.

    My point was that the school required uniforms, and that not allowing a girl to wear a 9/11 T shirt was not some liberal plot to excuse the perpetrators of 9/11, as was implied in the OP.

    Moreover, there is a big difference between rules that apply to children at school and rules that apply to the society at large. If the school says you wear a uniform, then you wear a uniform if you're a minor. If the parents say you wear a uniform at school, then you do. What you're implying is requiring everyone to wear a uniform.

    Personal choice does not happen until after the individual reaches adulthood.

    You're not a libertarian...

    Maybe a loose liberal but not a libertarian.

    Even libertarians believe in discipline for minors. Trust me on that.

    Once you're over 18 and making your own money, then the individual responsibility/individual choice thing kicks in.

    Yep. OP's Fox link says that the only time students don't have to wear uniforms is on "free dress days," and 9-11 wasn't one of them. Besides, the kids are all free to wear whatever they want after they return home from school.

    If it was a Muslim t-shirt, the same rule applied. The school has a dress code that is quite appropriate and applies to all students.

    Don't act like a liberal, now, whining about needing self-expression and all that nonsense.

    So in your opinion libertarianism is no-one should follow any rules at all? I know quite a few libertarians who would strongly disagree with your ideology.
