    Not only did I have you pegged as a hardhead with a bad case of tunnel vision but now I can add sexist to the list.

    While you and others want to continually tell me I am wrong on the issue, it may surprise you that the ACLU agrees with me.

    Four Reasons Public Schools Should Think Twice Before Instituting School Uniform Policies | ACLU of Nevada

    And a simple Google search will reveal where other districts have fought to keep uniforms out of their public schools on 1st Amendment Rights and have won.

    And yes I understand collectivism. It is the exact opposite of individualism.. and you obviously struggle with that one.

    1. I am not a hard head. We are debating. Apparently you are new to this...

    2. You have me pegged. I am a sexist. Because even though I told Chris it was sarcasm in the very post above yours, it obviously wasn't. Damn me! Must be rough for my daughters...

    3. The ACLU is a moronic organization that defends Nazi's and terrorists. They can eat crap and die for all I care.

    4. So what? Those people don't want uniforms. There is nothing unconstitutional about uniforms. That is why they are all over America.

    5. No, you don't understand the difference. That much is very clear in your posts, as I have clearly pointed out. Show me where I seemingly don't know what individualism is then... you can't but go ahead and try!!

    Our military is set up to be voluntary. So the picture of the marine in his dress blues made an INDIVIDUAL choice to serve knowing part of that service involved wearing a uniform.
    You're still stifling his expression. First amendment rights and all that.

    But when you mandate uniforms on children in a public institution you take away their INDIVIDUAL freedom of expression whether it be personal, religious or cultural traditional dress.
    They're welcome to go to a private school.

    You treat them COLLECTIVELY as a group.
    Kind of like our military.

    Ironically, Socialist countries which claimed to oppose militarism in contrast often impose school uniforms.
    Ironically, people who make ridiculous arguments never realize their arguments are ridiculous, even when presented with a parallel example they call ridiculous.

    Thank you for your response, Why I wouldn't know where to begin with this ridiculous run away train of thought. But it could share some light on why our public school systems are train wrecks. For a student can only be as good as his/her teacher.

    Re: Do you support school uniforms?

    They say you judge a country's freedom by how well it defends unpopular but legal activities. The ACLU doesn't defend the beliefs of Nazis, Jews, Christians, the thousand man marchers, or any other group of people. The ACLU defends the constitution, no matter how unpopular the activities under the Constitution may be.

    Ahh, I see. In the absence of any real or logical argument, you instead decide to blame me for the entire public school system. Got it. Thank goodness someone here isn't being ridiculous.

    Are you sure?

    In claiming to be "defending" the Constitution, they are defending Nazis, terrorists and others pieces of ****s beliefs.
