Beat me to it. What they are going to do? Give them a vacation from commie indoctrination camp
Yea.....I think this country is due a little peaceful rebellion against political correctness.
A little school district disobedience might be what everyone needs. I'm not too keen on having the people I pay telling me what I can and cannot do.
Beat me to it as well ---
STOP ASKING FOR PERMISSION TO DO THE RIGHT THING!!!!!
JUST DO IT ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Frig the fascist losers.
Somewhere in that school board, there is a Communist.
Those were the exact words on my mind while I was waiting for the comments to come up. 1st amendment rights, hey coach, let the men on your team put whatever they want on the backs of their jerseys. End of story, no school compliance needed, the kids did it themselves. The school would enjoy the treasure trove of butts in the bleachers. I say do it.
As a veteran, I read this story with the expectation that the school board were a bunch of unpatriotic jerks, but I actually think their explanation sounds reasonable.
However, if they allow players to wear pink shoes in support of Breast Cancer, or colored arm bands in support of some other cause, etc. and suddenly decided to draw the line here then I would see things differently.
Oh I also hope they will do it anyway!- I have never heard such a load of crud
Ironic, but typical liberalism that the school board seemingly had no problem with the players going through "three months of military education. Players had asked to wear camouflage uniforms, and the coach had them take military education courses and undergo military training. Each player was also required to conduct family and background research on a deceased member of the armed forces." So, it is okay to study and learn about the military behind closed doors or in the closet, but a public display is somehow offensive. Would love to get hold of a copy of the curriculum of the school district and see what agenda they are indoctrinating under the guise of education.
Someone tell these administrators that the people pay their salaries and the school's bills.
democrats will never be happy until everyone is MISERABLE as them.
Exactly! Do just like the Democrats, do it then ask for forgiveness.
As my papa taught me, It is always easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.
Shool districts response will be to punish these young men by forfeiting the games they play if they wear the jerseys. But I bet they'd be allowed to wear rainbow ribbons.
The ruling makes sense. If an exception is made in this case, then there is no telling what other schools might put on their team's jerseys.
However, I must say that this team's commitment to honoring and trying to understand the sacrifices of the men and women that have died for this country should be mimicked around the country. The players learning about a particular soldier and their lives has to be a character building activity.....
So what you can't have the soldier's name on the back of your jersey. How about instead, put no name on the back of the jerseys and place the soldier's initials on cleats, undershirts, eyeblack or helmet.....
OK. Would someone please tell this ignorant Canadian when honouring people who gave their country their service, their honour, their bravery and their lives became a cause? Is this school board, that is obviously run by human rectums, really equating honouring the fallen with selling chocolate bars for a trip to Washington, chanting mindlessly at a PETA protest or raising funds to fight global warming?
Truly, the gutter has come to rule.
draft them so called officials and put them in a uniform and see them Run …… back home to mommy !!!
"that it cannot wear the names of fallen soldiers across the backs of their uniforms because it doesn’t favor certain causes over others"
That doesn't make any sense.
Are you sure it shouldn't say, "because it DOES favor certain causes over others?"
Anyway, what's hilarious about his is that it wasn't the school who initiated the idea. It was the students, the players. They brought it up. How can the school district dictate which causes the students themselves choose to support or not support? So why does this: “As a publicly funded agency, PSD respects the diverse opinions of our community. Thus, the district does not support any one cause over another,” Have any bearing at all?

Isn’t Gosnell serving life for the same procedures in Philly? Why does anyone at PP get to just deny and walk around free?

If Hillary does wind up convicted convicted of anything she’ll immediately get a presidential pardon regardless of who is in office. The elites have privileges we minions aren’t given. Remember, people in power believe your rights come from them.
Fine. At least she won't get to steal the white house silverware again.

But in this case she’s right. What are you going to do, go door to door and round up illegals and their families and escort them to the border? What are we, Nazi’s rounding up Jews in France? The media and the world would draw that comparison and they would be right. We’re better than that.

Wasn’t just 2 years ago PP was claiming they don’t perform abortions, the only did mammograms? Then they remembered they didn’t have mammogram machines.

Why not ask CNN to prove income inequality? They can’t, it doesn’t exist. Don’t play into their B.S.

A wall? Really? The world will never be reminded of East Berlin nor will they draw the similarities to what’s supposed to be the freest country in the world. And deporting all illegals? That same world would never draw similarities to the rounding up of Jews in France.
Nice attempt to deflect. America, as the most exceptional country ever conceived, has to build a wall to keep people out and control the border. Someone like East Germany and the communist nations, being the least exceptional, have to build walls to keep the subjects in…or elsewise all their enslaved subjects would flee to freedom. Is this Joy Reid? Or Harry Reid?
Except that East Germany built the wall to keep people in and we would be rounding up criminals and not just a race of people...but thanks for putting out such an absurd comparison, reminds us of how minimal the progressive mind is.

This administration would rather arm the cartels before allowing our agents to be shot by the same weapons. Force against political allies and potential voters will never be tolerated.

So if you’re Jewish you have to sign an acceptable political statement before you can perform in a concert?
No, you don’t . What people need to understand is this wasn’t a music festival as much as it was probably a political rally. Call it what it is and don’t hide under the guise of something else, especially music,
This is normal for a socialist state. Conform! We are on our way.

Of course the secret service checked their weapons at the door of the gun free campus, right?

The SPLC said Bond was a “visionary” and “tireless champion” for civil and human rights.
And actually black!

Someone puts up a camera to peer into my yard and they ain’t going to last. It will get expensive replacing those things all the time.

You left out abstinence. Or is that too much of a moral obligation? You know, the morals that help society become better because it means we have respect for ourselves and don’t let ourselves get into the position of deciding an abortion. I know. It’s unrealistic to think a society can function in that manner. But we use to, so what’s changed?

“These as-yet-hypothetical life forms range from simple bacteria-like organisms to beings with civilizations far more advanced than humanity”
“Alien life, such as microorganisms, has been hypothesized to exist in the Solar System and throughout the universe.”
:It is often hypothesized that life forms elsewhere in the universe would, like life on Earth, be based on carbon chemistry and rely on liquid water.”
These are all just a few lines from Wikipedia. The science community goes out of its way to include just about anything as a form of life on other planets. Even to the point that forms of carbon is a life form. Obviously, most of this is done to inflate budgets so they can continue to have their research funded and keep their comfortable lives. Just like global warming is nothing more than that of a means of funding a lifestyle more so than pure science.
But I digress. Science goes out of its way to list anything a a form of life on other planets but here on earth, a fetus with human form is considered goo. Nothing more than cells that have no place in our society or worthy of protection from our laws. Just something to toss aside. So the most innocent and vulnerable among us is sacrificed over votes. This isn’t the America I know.

There’s blood on many hands on this one, i.e. Al, Jessie, Holder, Obama and so on. And now there’s plenty of blood for those hands.

Put a lion between the grenade and AK and the left would truly go nuts. A baby? They’re all for killing those.

Why do I care what other countries think? Other countries aren’t having their flags burned in the streets while people chant: death to Ireland.

If sanctions and expense are so preventative to another ME nation building a nuclear arsenal, how did Iran get one? We knew they were doing it, hell, they even announced it. We sanctioned them into oblivion, almost. And the expense is unreal, yet here we sit.
