    Moderator's Warning:
    Students Wearing American Flag Shirts Sent HomeThe personal attacks and "witty" attacks end now if you want to remain in this thread.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Thank you, Mr. Akston, I am only too happy to oblige. My apologies for anything I said in the heat of the argument that crossed the line of civility. If I may ask, for the record, do the "personal or witty attacks" also include slurs against the good people of Mexico?

Otherwise, the fact that administrators well founded fear that there was a chance a fight would be provoked is certainly enough to justify their actions.

    Maybe you should study up a little more and come back when you have something useful to contribute. Thanks for playing!
    So again, nothing at all about the students themselves being violent. So that means that my prior post regarding the expulsion of actually violent students still stands uncontested given that your reply to it is lacking in facts.

    Once more, if students were appearing to or did become violent, then the violent students should be removed from school. Not the kids who happened to be wearing clothing that offended someone's delicate sensibilities.

    If little suzy gets pissed at people wearing red t-shirts, then little suzy can go home. You don't send home the kids wearing the red t-shirts just because little suzy is a whiny bitch.

    Thats just it, there was something about the students themselves being violent. To wit, a reasonable fear on the part of administrators "that displaying the flag would incite fights with the Mexican-American student body." Administrators shouldn't have to wait until the first punch is thrown before taking disciplinary action against students. It is highly presumptuous to second-guess the teachers and administrators on the ground, particularly without evidence. The fact is that the say that there was reason to fear that the shirts would incite violence, and you have no evidence to suggest otherwise.

    To go with your example, if a student sadistically wears a red t-shirt with the specific intent of pissing off "little suzy" knowing full well that such a t-shirt would incite "little suzy" then administrators are fully justified in asking the student to remove the red t-shirt.

    The good people of Mexico haven't had any slurs made against them...just the subhuman migratory herds that wind up here with no regard for our laws.

    No, there was NOT. Not a single word about the students wearing the shirts being violent in the slightest. Not a word.

    What was said was that the school officials felt the US flag was "incendiary" and "disrespectful". In other words, the school officials are ****tards.

    There was nothing mentioned at all about the flag wearing students starting a fight, hitting anyone, threatening to, or anything of the sort. Simply, they wore clothing that - according to school rules - was perfectly acceptable to wear. If the school REALLY thinks that the stars and stripes are "incendiary" and "disrespectful", then they could make a rule disallowing any representation of it on any clothing, books, artwork, etc, and pull it down from the flagpole. However, since they deem such clothing appropriate attire for the school, making students go home for wearing attire deemed appropriate simply because Jose got his panties in a wad is flat out, without a doubt, 100% WRONG.

    Either it's okay to wear the attire, or it's not. Period.

    To wit, a reasonable fear on the part of administrators "that displaying the flag would incite fights with the Mexican-American student body."
    Did the school remove the flag from the flagpole?

    If the mexican american student body can't handle seeing the stars and stripes flying in the United ****ing States, then THEY need to go home.



    To go with your example, if a student sadistically wears a red t-shirt with the specific intent of pissing off "little suzy" knowing full well that such a t-shirt would incite "little suzy" then administrators are fully justified in asking the student to remove the red t-shirt.
    Holy ****. No, they are NOT. The school doesn't revolve around the delicate feelings of one or even a specific group of students. If they get pissy over the color of someone's shirt, THEY go home. Little suzy doesn't get to dictate what all of the other students can wear. And any administrator that would allow that doesn't deserve such a position of authority.

    You can't possibly know intent and therefore, it cannot be entered into evidence.

    Every holiday you mentioned is religious not national.

    There is a difference. This is about celebrating nationalism not religion.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
