“It’s extremely important, and we have to draw that line.” the cries of hate speech are sweeping our nation and many Americans foolishly and naively oppose “hate speech” not realizing the fundamental liberty they are ceding in the name of political correctness. We criminalize act not words.

“I’m Jewish, and if that had been a little swastika on my window, what’s the difference?”
There is no difference. The swastika is protected speech also. This teacher is in charge of educating the children of this country and she has no clue about our Constitutional rights. She is not alone. We must stop the spread of the notion that words should be silenced. That someone is offended is not the test. We criminalize acts, not thoughts. This erosion of the understanding of our rights scares me. Pushback whenever you hear the terms hate crime or hate speech because we have to put an end to this ignorance.
there's a difference between WEARING a sticker,and putting it on school property,like the door to that teacher's classroom. The former is protected free speech,the latter is vandalism. (a really minor vandalism,and no "hate crime".)
Students don't own the school property,they have no right to put stickers on it,for any reason.
this feels a little similar to
a gay couple wanting a cake from a baker who is christian,
a "christian" wanting an anti gay cake from a gay baker.
while both technically is a freedom of speech in a grey area, one group tends to want to cause more drama and tell others how live their lives in the name of jesus, that makes that group a lot less appealing.

I’d like to see their revenue on porn charted over time. I suspect it is declining because “guests still have access to the content of their choice via WiFi Internet.”
“Jackson’s brother and boyfriend eventually killed the spider,” I hope to goodness that two people helped her kill the spider.

I bet $1 the Police superintendent doesn’t personally appear on site at all Chicago shootings.

seems righteous. God calls some of these men to get Gulfstream private jets. To spread the word of course.

protect and serve baby. While I applaud the efforts of most police and support their role, we have become a nation with so many laws that any one of us is guilty of something at some point in the day. We need less laws and we need better scrutiny of police officers so their power has some checks and balances.
PROTECT and SERVE ? Not anymore.
File against them PROFESSIONALLY and in PRIVATE capacity, Then sue the state. Then sue the county, for "mis-training" or "under-training" Then give those stupid maggots a "Constitutional" test to see if they even know why they're getting "over" paid, If they actually pass the Constitution test, then that means he knows the law and "knowingly," purposefully ignored it, which is "TREASON" for which they SHOULD BE HANGED.
I know it's ALMOST impossible for those arrogant, sanctimonious, ego-maniacal, authority driven power hungry turds to accept, however, their entire JOB is to UPHOLD, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE LIBERTIES, FREEDOMS AND RIGHTS GUARANTEED by the U. S. CONSTITUTION. EXECUTE THEM FOR TREASON

Pretty easy to compare the Mercedes and Toyota plants that are thriving in the south with the dead models of the UAW Detroit plants. But no way can this vote be based on the terrible performance of the unions. Racism, Hitler, look a squirrel.

Blaze readers need to have some discretion with their outrage. 1) Bring a valentine or treat for the entire class is the standard rule for all schools since forever. 2) don’t put names on them policy makes it really easy to distribute the cards when the time comes. No need for the teachers to match names for KINDERGARTNERS.
Blaze discredits itself with some of the things the readers get worked up over.

We need to counter the stupid notion that existing coverages were “crappy”. I’m 42 year old guy with a vasectomy. Don’t need pregnancy coverage. I haven’t drank in 15 years. Don’t need substance abuse coverage. I believe that insurance should cover major medical situations. Don’t need $30 check ups. In short, it is crappy that I can’t pick coverage to suit my needs. It I scrappy that the statists get to decide what is best for me.

surprised they didn’t get arrested on Bart or in SF for the bazooka and guns.

love the people that say “if parents had raised these children right….this never would have happened.” That attitude is so unrealistic.
Underage drinking has been going on since the day minors were prohibited from drinking. It is a challenge for “good” parents and “bad” alike. If you raised a kid that grew to be 21 without ever drinking, kudos to you. You are in the minority, and you are probably delusional. The rest of us have to try to raise kids that overall make good decisions, learn from (hopefully small) mistakes, and grow up to be responsible adults. We live in a society that promotes drinking and partying. Most high school kids experiment. Doesn’t mean they are bad kids, and it doesn’t mean they are bad parents. The world is not as cut and dry as some people around here like to make it out to be.
As for the decision whether to involve the police or not, that seems to be an honest debate with obvious pro’s and con’s to each side.
Exactly. We shouldn't be too harsh on these parents because we don't know what they are putting up with. Also, the report said something about a party broken up by police that ended up with parents getting in trouble too. It's a constant battle with your teens. You wanna give them room to be adults and learn life lessons but you don't want them making obvious blunders that could have lifelong repercussions. Furthermore it was a good choice for the parents to reduce possible collateral damage. They could lose the house or worse if something really random happened, like one of the kids gets in their car attempts to drive home and crashes. That situation could have a lot of unintended liabilities attached to it. I don't think the parents called to cops to have them raise or discipline their kids. I feel it was done as a precaution in today's day and age of sue happy society.

1) The reason doesn’t have me shaking my head in disbelief because the second amendment is under attack.
2) Imagine the outrage in the media if a CC processor decided not work with a company because they performed abortions, or performed gay marriages. I’m sure that would be couched as a violation of constitutionally protected civil rights.
3) End of the day, this CC processor has the right to choose who they do business with. if they don’t want gun business, then someone who does can step in and take their place.

The blaze’s commentaries level of discourse is about as intelligent as apes in a zoo. Editors take note of what popular science have done recently, because I’m starting to be embarrassed by this sites readers. I like Glenn and agree with many of his views, but you people are such a disgrace to intelligent discussion.
The folks on this site are not interested in intelligent discussion. Its kind of a shame because the signal to noise ratio is so poor that any meaningful good ideas that might be said are buried in a sea of voices of bigotry and plain stupidity.
Just give it some time. Keep listening, and seek the truth with all your heart. Perhaps ask for God's help to search for truth.... after all... where does truth come from?
Simplelies - When have you been intelligent? And your side is bigoted against Christians and completely stupid by opposing capitalism. So don't lecture us about your tolerance dogma.
Bigotry is a vice one day and a virtue the next. I could go on, but this will suffice.

Tea party patriots are about liberty and limited government. A real conservative would leave this issue to the states. You can’t claim to speak for the tea party with your bigotry.
start your own theocratic party if you want to be guided by the bible or your own personal mores, but you are no tea party patriot.
September 22, 2013 at 2:11pm
I’m with Ted. I no longer consider myself a Republican. Im a tea party libertarian. The GOP will get no money or support from me from this point forward.

Anybody that doesn’t know this band doesn’t follow modern music. There is a whole world that exists outside the realm of your experience. Blaze readers are narrow minded. Personally I don’t love this band, but I am definitely aware of a top selling Grammy winning act. Blaze readers more and more like wnd readers every day.
September 21, 2013 at 10:41am
So what. The blaze and it’s readers can get worked up over some truly irrelevant things. Free market means some businesses will fail. That doesn’t always mean liberal cause, conspiracy, or government meddling. California is a tough place to do business.
