    Re: School Makes Boy Take American Flag Off Bike

    The idea that the symbol of this nation is, or could be, considered offensive to someone 'in this country', is patently ridiculous.

    If you're here, you're here for a reason. You were born here, raised here, immigrated here for work or security or freedom or whatever.

    How in the world can the symbol of the country you live in, offend you?

    IF it does, then you really don't belong here, and you should feel free to get the **** out. Now.

    And don't give me any **** about 'freedom of expression'. It does not infringe upon YOUR freedom of expression if I fly an american flag. You're being offended and making me take the flag down infringes on MY freedom of expression.

    I give that a six on the meter. The outrage merchants are slipping. They need to find some elementary school that wouldn't let the kids sing the words to Silent Night quick.

    I never thought wed arrive to the root of the issue so fast.

    It's incidents like the one in the video that make people like this. Kids used to be able to take pocketknives to school. Now they can get expelled for wielding a push pin threateningly.
    They don't get that the american flag isnt offensive. Only when it's used offensively. Whoever made the decision suffered a lack of brains.

    I am wondering if they recite the pledge of allegiance at assemblies, school board meetings, etc. at that school....

    So you don't see a problem with some kids in schools who believe the American flag is a source of racial tension?

    That does'nt bother you?

    Dude, no matter how much Barbasol you put on the top of that molehill, no matter how lovingly you sculpt it, it's still not Everest.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Really? You just went and assumed it was Muslims?

    Oh you. Never change.

    To me, this story screams the standard "zero tolerance means zero thinking" problem that has taken over our schools. I remember way back in high school, cheap laser pointers were classified as a weapon. Bringing a weapon to school means immediate expulsion! *sigh*
