Take that thing off your head

Things are going too far!!!

A teacher suspended for telling a student to stand for the pledge of allagence. When will it end? :

Re: Take that thing off your head

I wish I could say you got to be kidding. What would have happened in my high school is. She would have got a ass wooping in the hallway buy her peers (girls) The teachers would have looked the other way. We didn't put up with crap from nobody. When things didn't go our way we had riots that closed down both of our high schools.

My class was 1972 Ann Arbor Michigan Huron High. We had our own in school smoking lounge that we fought for and won. We finally came to an agrement with the principal & the board of education that if we would leave the un-american as we saw it alone they would let school out at noon on friday. Un American to us covered a lot of students.

Our final agreement was. School out at noon Friday. School sponsored drag races in the far parking lot (our turf) with trophies. We did have to agree to no more violence but by then the rest of the students had ended there crap anyway.

If you don't want to assimilate then stay out of my country.

Re: Take that thing off your head

It appears that you can now be whatever you want to be and have all the benefits of living here. We cant offend anyone because of it. In the past all Immigrants, not only wanted to live here but be an American. I guess I am French-Finnish-English-Native American, But I just say American, that's the only label I need!!! AND I am quite proud of it.

I have much of my family that helped settle America and were in WW2 and in Viet-Nam, and in Afghanistan. Some gave their all!

Re: Take that thing off your head

The Netherlands have the immigration thing right. If you are an illegal, you have 5 years to learn fluent Dutch and participate in the Dutch culture. If you don't pass, go home. There are a few exemptions but not many AND no one is grandfathered. By one estimate, over 750,000 Muslims and Moroccans will have have to return to their home country.
Seems like we should get our immigrations lasw in order before health care.

Re: Take that thing off your head

I don't fault the young Muslim lady for the head cover, that is religious in nature similar to a prayer shawl, or hat in some other religions. But if you don't respect the country you live in, why stay? I work with many Muslims both male & female and especially the females are glad to be in this country because of how women are treated in their native land. This young lady needs a wake up call, and the young JROTC student who confronted her, should be applauded not suspended!

How about this for separation of Church and State? You can belong to whatever religion you prefer, but when the national anthem plays or the pledge is recited Stand with respect or get deported to the nearest country where your religion predominates.

Re: Take that thing off your head

Followup..
We had a guy back in 1970 who didn't at least "stand" at our morning Flag Raising and the ceremony... just stand is all we asked.

He refused.

During the week he was not allowed to participate in the "freedoms" granted by Our Flag..

He was the first to stand the following weeks.

I wonder why?

Maybe the 40 whacks he received with the hammer were enough.

Freedom of expression is not free, just respect the country, traditions and people who have fought to grant you that right. (this is from a Canadian who has stood beside Americans on foriegn soil on many occassions)

Ready - FIRE ---- AIM !!!!!! (again)

The above attached article and the initial inflammatory articles and events were WRONG, and taken out of context - The attacking girl ( what a surprise) LIED about what happened and was quickly believed by her parents and the press. She has semi-apoligized..... like a politician!

Well, since we already handed out one big ass-kicking, TWO is not a problem, either. I say we put a boot in both of their worthless asses--just for good measure!
