    You don't send your child to fight your battles.
    I would have assumed that this wouldn't be a big deal, actually. Who would expect the crazy teacher would call the cops? That is beyond the pale.

    That's another thing: why didn't the police roll their eyes at her and arrest her for wasting their resources? Why did the police actually follow through with her lunacy?

    It's not my job to make sure people who don't know the difference between socialism and communism don't get offended by my correct use of the word.

    Socialism does not reject nations.

    Yes, it does.

    No, it doesn't. Some facets of socialism might, such as anarcho-syndicalism and communism, but Socialism itself does not.

    Even Marx argued that a socialist state was a precursor to communism.

    Seriously, how can you claim to be communist without knowing the difference.

    I can't imagine a teacher calling the cops about this. There may be more to the story. My mother would have been pissed if I had refused to do something the teacher told me to do.

    Even if it was against their religion? I doubt it.

    Forcing the pledge is hypocritical in a free country, and so is making kids stand for the national anthem. Let the kids decide. If they grow up and feel patriotic then they can take part in that. If they want to sit down for it, then that is their own choice.

    Ummm...not for nothing...but I was curious about your comment here. i mean...i dont recall seeing a ton of support for the teacher...so I went back and counted...and as of your 35th post citing the ignorance on this thread...and there were exactly TWO comments that might be construed as somehow supporting the teachers actions...32 affirming the kids right to object or agreeing the teachers overreaction was at best foolish...

    so...speaking of overreaction...
