I suspect the “journalist” aren’t telling us everything. I’m guessing that the guy lost his job because he wasn’t doing it as well as his employers were expecting. If he were, it is highly doubtful they’d fire him over something like this.
It wouldn’t be much of a story if we were told the truth — e.g. the guy wasn’t very good at his job and then he did something stupid, so he was fired. Instead, the reporters (ehm, TheBlaze) only gives us the part of the story that makes it sensational.

Uhhh… have you met any 4-year olds? They aren’t quite little adults who can use logic and reasoning to think through consequences. There isn’t a 4-year-old on earth that hasn’t behaved badly at some point. That’s kinda why they need parents to teach them right from wrong, and it is up to the parents to keep their kids safe (e.g. locking doors, and making the house kids safe).
Saying the kid should just know better than doing this isn’t fair to the kid or the parents. Kids screw up. Parents punish the misbehaving child if the parents are doing their job. Parents also praise their kids when the kids make good decisions as well.
Then again, a lot of people have given Captain Hindsight a bunch of thumbs up, so what do I know.

What makes any of you think a constitutional convention is a good idea? There are just way too many stupid Americans (see two elections of Obama as evidence). Wait until the liberals start advancing their own amendments — repeal of the right to bear arms, implementation of a living wage, imprisonment of climate change deniers, whatever stupid thing they can dream up. Do we really want to put these to a popular vote?

I have to agree with Brigott. Not everyone earns a varsity letter. Not everyone gets a trophy. I realize this is a special needs student, and I liked someone else’s comment that suggested special letters for kids like this one. Their accomplishments are something truly special, and if they can receive some special recognition that would be great. Nevertheless, he didn’t earn “this” letter. (Although I wouldn’t have been the parent that complained about it either.)
Good post and you make some good points. Many have suggested the special needs should receive their own special letter. Well, perhaps he received his special letter. I received a varsity letter that I "earned" and it was presented at a school assembly and the school body cheered. Michael didn't receive "the" letter, presented with all the pomp and ceremony. He's just a kid who just wanted to walk the halls of his school wearing a symbol of his pride in a job well done. Why not allow him that, since he will never be able to compete on the same level as his classmates?

DDT was great at killing mosquitoes, but the fear mongering left drove it off the market and have cost hundreds of thousands of lives in mosquito carried diseases such as malaria, West Nile virus, encephalitis, dengue and yellow fever. They fear monger on fracking, climate change, the keystone pipeline, race relations, wars on women, healthcare, social security, and pretty much every position they hold. Apparently they are now doing it with Roundup. I’m not worried about the health effects of Roundup, but I wouldn’t drink it either.
Roger that and now they're going after glyphosate. What's worse is Blazers are falling for it.
Both of you are complete rubes.
Outlaw_wealth, I'm assuming by your idiotic username, that you live in a cardboard box and using a borrowed computer, but I digress.One study from a French university is hardly proof. I honestly don't trust any studies from any side because they all serve their own interests. The big secret no one talks about is that other countries don't want to hurt their own farmers by importing cheaper grain. The very article you site points out that U.S. imports hurt Argentinian soybean farmers.
Yes, you do digress, and you are an ASS. Your assumptions are entirely without merit which if you had taken time to study anything I have posted, you would end up agreeing with most of my opinion

Crikey! Watch what happens when I poke this here giant manta ray.

It was mentioned because the boy got a military style haircut and the school said he could attend class with it. The school’s position seemed to be that it looks like a mohawk so the kid needs to get it all shaved off. Even after explaining that it was a military style high and tight, the school still said too bad, we don’t care. Only after going to the press did the school and school board start to see things differently.

Yeah, because saying a woman is beautiful under your breath and getting embarrassed when overheard is just so childish. /sarc (I guess I’m an 8-year-old at heart too.)

Uhhh… no… that’s the stenographer — not the pretty woman. The woman he remarked on was not shown.

I just love the people calling Krauthammer an idiot because Obama was just as inexperienced as Cruz.
Their logic seems to be — the liberals were a bunch of morons for electing an inexperienced Senator with no accomplishments, therefore conservatives should elect an inexperienced Senator with no accomplishments. Man, that Krauthammer is stupid and he should just shut up.

Some parents are bullies to their kids. They almost seem to thrive on punishing them. I hope that isn’t the case here, because it may explain why his kid is a bully in the first place.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of those parents who thinks you can just reason with a kid. I think it is a parent’s job teach them right from wrong and to punish kids when they need it. I even think spankings have their place as well. Nevertheless, I’ve seen parents who can go overboard (and seem to get a perverse joy out of it). I don’t know if that is the case here, but for some reason I just have a feeling it might be.

‘I could care less’ reminds me of the phrase ‘Oh, she thinks she is hot $hit’. Why would someone WANT to be hot $hit?

I wonder what would happen if these people went to New England where they don’t pronounce “R”s, or have weird words for common items like bubbler (i.e. bubblah) used for water fountain, or Happy Holidays when they mean Merry Christmas.

He could get “CR” added to his tattoo, but I have a feeling the tattoo is not the source of his problems.
I agree with BeeAlert and the girl raised by Lesbians. Children should have a father in their life whenever possible.
Kids should also have loving parents who are not constantly fighting, or substance abusers, or violent, or racists, or bigots, or Democrats. They should have parents that make education a child’s top priority. They should have parents that are roll models. They should have parents that can support their children financially. They should have grandparents in their lives. They should live in a neighborhood that doesn’t have hookers and drug dealers on every corner.
However, that’s life. Not all kids get the same advantages or have ideal lives. A mom and dad is the ideal set of parents, but what are you going to do, have the government mandate it?

I think it is real. My 10-year-old niece writes like that as well (better then me). Plus the letter does have spelling mistakes (maby instead of maybe, races instead of racist), the note wraps around the edge of the card when she ran out of room, and the grammar/thought process about her mom giving her permission is unclear.
TheBlaze writers tend to be just as bad with stories full of spelling and grammar errors, so I realize that is no guarantee this was written by a child. Nevertheless, I don’t have a reason to doubt that it is true. Particularly based on the father’s gracious reaction. I can’t believe he faked the letter.
Assuming the letter is true. The white girl’s father is a racist tool, and he deserves to be condemned as such. I can’t stand people playing the race card, but there are times when it is warranted to call out a real racist.

I have to disagree. You can be racist, a nazi, or like looking at pictures of little boys — but the rest of society can (and should) call you a disgusting deviant.
