    Seriously, man, what is your problem? This action is the exact opposite of what liberals believe.

    Is it possible for you to look at the thing objectively or does your bias force you to say that any time someone does something you disagree with it's the liberal's fault?

    Oh, yes, it's really going way out on a limb to think that anti-flag (sorry, anti- American flag) or hyper-PC crap must have a liberal behind it. Way, way out on a limb

    And, no, for your information, I don't assume that anything I disagree with is a liberal's fault. Stick to the topic. None of this mealy-mouthed talk about someone who's reached the level of Principal or VP needing some education about the 1st amendment. This incident isn't the "exact opposite" of what liberals believe. How often do you see conservatives disrespecting the flag or favoring another country's flag over our own on our own soil?? At least own up to what the people in your own party do (and nowhere did I say it was all liberals).

    Maybe we should start one that Mexicans can be proud of..."Viva the day I was able to escape that rat infested ****hole" day. Celebrated by a few hundred million people no longer IN Mexico.

    Also known as "It sucks to be you poor bastardos still stuck IN Mexico" Day.

    Unless there is more to this story like the kids were being blatantly racist and in the face of the Mexican American students IMHO this was idiocy by the school administration.

    And another talking point for the RW and Tea Bag bunch to rail on.

    Oh definitely these kids were making a statement but I think best to just ignore them instead of fueling the fire. So now it is a national incident. Prepare to get inudated with hate email & phone calls Live Oak HS.

    Where are all these fantasy liberal message boards decrying this principal?
    Hello? Did you read what you just posted? Here, I'll highlight some of the comment the liberal poster said that you quoted:

    this was idiocy by the school administration.

    I think best to just ignore them instead of fueling the fire

    The poster did NOT take the side of the school -- clear as can be -- and rightly pointed out that the crazies on the right would blame liberals even though liberals disagree with this action.

    Man! You're so biased you can't even read comments made by a liberal who agrees with you without blowing up irrationally!

    You can also replace with the term Irish, English, German, French, etc.

    Stop being ridiculous.

    Kidding aside, drinking is serious in Ireland.

    Liberals are the ones who bring lawsuits (often through the ACLU) to protect the rights of everyone to free speech, even when they disagree with the speech. This is a perfect example of the kinds of cases the liberals have fought many times.

    If you think that any prominent liberals or liberal groups - or even a majority of liberal people -- are supporting this principal*, then please provide some evidence. All I have seen is the exact opposite.


    * there are always extremists on either side, so I know there will be some liberals who support the principal, just like there may be some conservatives who support the principal because he has to maintain order or something ...

    "I think they should apologize cause it is a Mexican Heritage Day," Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, said. "We don't deserve to be get disrespected like that. We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July".
    They can at least be realistic by acknowledging that they're not in Mexico, and that neither country is under a dictated nationalist rule.

    Ignore that ****.

    Some people are to quick to blame "liberulz" for the actions of one stupid person.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Though I wouldn't do the whole "typical lieburulz" schtik, if I was a betting man, I'd bet this principle is slightly south of right wing....
