    since bearing a firearm is also a right, should we not teach kids that right also, and how to be responsible in exercising that right.

    Do you have any idea what a "labor dispute" is by definition? Obviously not. The colonists didn't work for the British. A labor dispute is a disagreement between employees and their employer.

    Once again, what caused the Boston Massacre is in the post I posted from your very same link. It wasn't a labor dispute, and it wasn't a civil protest. It was a brawl.

    Just stop now.

    Will that suffice?
    No.

    I'm looking for exact, real examples. ie; ISBN and page number.

    Re: Hundreds of Colorado students protest history curriculum

    The protests are aimed at new JeffCo School Board member Julie Williams’ proposal, which states, in part: “Materials should promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free enterprise system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights.

    Materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law. Instructional materials should present positive aspects of the United States and its heritage.”
    /Sounds like the JeffCo school board wants kids obedient and mind-numb. Thank god the kids have enough active brain cells to challenge this elected hack.

    Practice free speech and protest versus taking loaded Uzis to class...that is a hard one. Why can't kids do both?

    this is unreal, to even make such a statement..

    if you notice the idea is to teach responablity in exercising a right.

    when you exercise a right.....you should always be responsible even in using free speech.

    Oh god.

    Working people demonstrating against what they think is unfair in their labor is a labor dispute. I spent 30 years in the Teamsters Union, so yes, I have a general idea what a labor dispute is... (jeez).... that's why I so so labled that demonstration against English soldiers undercutting the rope workers wages and the general demonstration against impressment.

    The brawl started at the rope worker's demonstration: as I recall, the workers had armed themselves with clubs.

    Read a little; get a grip.

    Protesting war is disrespecting the US?

    And look at the facts, the Bush Administration grew the government and the right wing cheerleaders happily supported all of it.

    One more time. The Boston Massacre was not a labor dispute. It was started for exactly the scenario that I originally explained, and without any links necessary on my part to relay to you the factual events of that night. You posted a link in response, which also contained the exact same information I had posted earlier.

    The Boston Massacre was not a labor dispute. It was a brawl started by colonists needling the British soldiers. That is a fact you can't twist.

    For a few posts, you didn't even know what you were posting about anyway. You're the same person who kept saying that Bunker Hill was a civil protest. Then when I corrected you, you said "oops I mean the Boston Massacre". There was no "demonstration" that night. It was a fight. Snowballs, muskets, etc. A civil demonstration by your earlier definition in this thread (in case you forgot) was that it was a non-violent form of protest. Do you realize that people died in Boston that night?

    Even if the Massacre was a labor dispute - which it wasn't - it has no similarity to this thread subject anyway. The topic is kids demonstrating something. This isn't a labor dispute. It's closer to the historical account of the Boston Massacre than either a labor dispute or a civil protest. It's a bunch of kids looking to needle their school administration.
