    I should have been more clear. my opinion was that it was overly PC school boards will assume that muslims might be offended and over-react
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Oh, and just for the record. If hispanics are offended by seeing the US flag being waved on cinco de mayo....they should go back to mexico. If you are more proud of being a mexican than you are of being an american...maybe you don't belong in America???? just a thought.

    I didn't piss and whine about seeing the Iraqi flag being waved on the 4th of July while I was in Basrah

    Every class in my 5th graders school has an American flag.

    but you are typical of your kind....anyone who disagrees with you must be a racist, bigot or homophobe. and THAT, my friend, is where your prejudice comes in
    Seeing the American flag flying does my heart good. Seeing one flying on a 13 yr old kids bike would bring a smile to my face. When did patriotism become politically incorrect?

    Schools have really lost any ability to be reasonable these days. Maybe it's our fault with our endless bitching and lawsuits. But something like not allowing a kid to have an American flag on his bike...that's a bit much. Even for our knee-jerk reactionary society we've produced for ourselves.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
