    What percentage of these school's funding comes from the Fed in the first place? I know it's probably significant but would it really "shut them down".

    Why aren't school boards allowed to make local rules? I guess national education is a Republican goal now.

    I agree those rules are stupid, but defunding them seems like throwing out the baby with the bathwater. It's overkill.

    It is when it's about God, guns, or gynecology.

    [/FONT][/COLOR]Ok so i think those "zero tolerance" rules are a bit drastic when it comes to "playing" with imaginary guns but i also think this bill is also a bit drastic supporting defunding of these schools that have these rules.





    The anti-freedom party strikes again.

    I do not agree with schools who have a zero tolerance for imaginary guns. I especially do not agree with the consequences of kids playing kids games. Now if it is a 10 or a 12 year old, they have some responsibility but 7 and under do not have the concept of killing with guns and how it relates to imaginary guns, so they should never be punished.

    But with all of that told, removing funding for this kind of thing? Republicans should get busy working with democrats to get real problems solved rather than creating mountains of of molehills when it comes to these kinds of almost non-issues.

    Again, the defunding only happens if the schools don't change the rules. So the school boards and administrations would be the ones throwing out the baby.

    Embryology is "lies from the pit of hell," according to Paul Broun. (R-GA)

    A doctor with two children. I do wonder, when his wife had an ultrasound, what on earth did he think he was looking at? He's a medical doctor, not a biologist or physicist, so I can give him some leeway when he says the same thing about the Big Bang Theory and evolution. But embryology? What the hell are they teaching these people at UGA?

    I don't care who's throwing what. If someone shoots their neighbor because they wouldn't turn the music down, I guess you could blame it on the neighbor for not adjusting the volume....

    I think the people who believe in magic and invisible men are out to destroy the world.

    These religions of Abraham are all death worshiping cults out to bring Armageddon.
