    None of which, of course, makes it appropriate.

    LOL -- ugly attitude??? Just what 'ugly attitude' have you conjured into existence?

Please clarify what you want me to speak to. In order for to you speak about Bunker Hill you would have to know what it was: it’s not a trick question,
    So you can't define a civil protest, but you're advocating for High School students to do it because our nation was founded on civil protests. Okay, clear enough

    Just as those who are teaching them were exploited.

    They were also raised in an environment that no matter what sort of atrocities have been committed elsewhere, America is all Indian Land, Adolph Hitler was a Christian, Americans had slaves, Vietnam was bad, and so it goes until, finally, the President of the United States feels comfortable enough to stand in a UN forum filled with dictators of every stripe to discuss Ferguson, Missouri, - and this is taken as normal for many of American people.

    A people this misinformed about their own past, where only the negative is taught, where the students, and even their President, have no clue about American exceptionalism, cannot survive for long. They are like Dodo birds, too stupid to survive confrontation with any enemy because they have nothing to protect, nothing to stand for, no reason to survive and no idea they are even under attack..

    Civil protest is non violent action to effect change, ala Martin Luther King. That's what the kids are dong and the school board has shelved the idea, so it worked.

    Again; what kind of point are you trying to make?

The founders working with the king means nothing to the over all point of cvil disobedience and armed conflict as a solution.

    So, the kids are absolutely right then.


    it is amazing how lost you are so quickly, in our conversation, on what i quoted this from the story, which you sought to rebut me on, here is the quote.

    A student demonstrator, Tyrone G. Parks, a senior at Arvada High School, said Tuesday that the nation's foundation was built on civil protests, "and everything that we've done is what allowed us to be at this point today. And if you take that from us, you take away everything that America was built off of."
    which is the foundation of america, not kids walking out of class........you are wrong here.

    this nation is founded on revolution, not protest as you claim.........america did not get its Independence by protest, but by revolution.......you are wrong here.

    the Boston tea party and burning houses are not protest that is incorrect, which you try to make the claim they are.........you are wrong here.

    right to protest and right to revolution are natural rights, they are not privileges of government...

    since they are natural rights of people, it is impossible to be a protest, which involved the destruction of private property.....tea/ buildings.

    no natural right enables any person with the ability to destroy , steal, cheat another person of anything they own..............so again your are wrong, ..............about what you say as well as Tyrone G. Parks, because neither of you know anything about America's founding, its documents , and rights of the people.

    Yes, and I added Bunker Hill and the Tea Party as examples. Wars don't just start one moring becasue it sounded like a good idea at the time. One has to take the entirety into consideration. The Declaration of Independence announced the founding, the revolution (armed conflict) cleared the way.

    These highschool kids did exactly the right thing for exactly the right reasons and they won! You and a few others are grasping at straws trying to make them wrong while grasping at straws trying to make that idiot school board right. Tyrone G. Parks was exactly right.

    Your logic fails you.

    this is a very sad attempt you get yourself out of the hole you dug for yourself....
