    But not white on them stompers? Can't be a real hardcore racist, yet - if I was single maybe I could change him.

    Good to know, though, that he won't be dying of dehydration any time soon. Nothing says 'I made it' in life like a well hydrated racist bastard.

    If anything, it just shows that public schools are fascist, conformist, intolerant hellholes. I am beginning to pity any students who are being thrust into those revolving-door jokes instead of a proper private institute.
    Again, further proof that people are constantly misusing terms.

    Of course, it was Cinco de Mayo when the flag was put up; so the flag probably had NOTHING to do with a history lesson of the independence of one of our neighboring nations.

    GOD FORBID kids learn about the nations next door to us.

    No, because that Fascism! Fascism! I tell you!

    Kid shoud've freaking burned it, he should have!

    Yeah, ISS and paying for the flag would have been sufficient to me.

    I felt it was a little over-the-top, but on the other hand, my son thinks he's a comedian and can be disruptive to the teacher staying on task. So, whatever. He got extra chores at home (thistle digging duty) and is grounded for a month, as well. I think it will be a while before he throws another airplane in class.

    Don't take this the wrong way Catz, but your kid has something to learn. You wait for the last day of school to act up since the teachers don't give a **** anymore, thats when you get away with it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    You've got to be kidding me.

    First of all, I don't care what day it was. It wasn't in the classroom; it was placed in a public area of the school, not that it really matters anyway. If you want to learn about Cinco de Mayo and be disappointed at its origins at the same time, go to the library.

    Sorry if you love our intolerant public school system. Now, eyes forward and keep your mouth closed. Like a good boy.

    Do you not realize that the flag was placed there by the school's SPANISH club as part of their cultural/historical studies?

    Yeah, because learning a bit of world history will only make our kids stupid.

    "Cinco de Mayo is a day for Americans to drink Corona, kids. Now, save up for your Spring Break trip to Cabo! And that's what you need to know about Mexico. Moving on..."

    I wish people whose kids hate public schools so much would just freakin' pay for a private school for their kids. That would likely then allow the rest of the kids to get a decent education.

    If you want your kid to think that humans rode dinosaurs and don't want them to know anything about other countries or learn other languages, then pay for it. Send them to the local Bible-thumping school (or non-religious school for all I care...)

    But a Mexican Flag put up by the Spanish Club is NOT some sort of imposition on anyone's right to an education.

    I swear, the people of this nation get more paranoid and disrespectful on a daily basis.

    Idiocracy is becoming the most prescient film ever made.

    Who would a Salvadoran gang be holding a Mexican flag?

    The more important point is that the common nationalism of mainstream conservatives and white supremacists is not incidental or something that happened by chance. Mainstream conservatives are certainly not white supremacists, but their philosophy is more conducive to the development of supremacist beliefs than more leftist ideology is, I think.
