I’m fine with that. Since the assignment was entitled “All About Me”, it was designed to be personal. Therefore, the kids-as well as the parents-would we well founded in their desire to include anything that demonstrates their personality and/or beliefs. Now, were you trying to make some point about intolerance? I’m curious if the teacher and school would have had the same response had the student been Muslim, and wanted to include something from the Koran.
I don't think religion or atheism belong in school. Someone will always get their feelings hurt. I am against an atheist child proclaiming there is no god in school as much as a religious child 'sharing' his beliefs. Can't kids have at least one place that is neutral on the issue?

While this idiot may have the “right” to stomp on a flag-as an educator and supposed educated adult-he should have the good sense and respect for others NOT to.
He has the right to do it on his own time. Not the taxpayer's time.

Really? With all this type of nitpicking foolishness, PETA-as well as any other organization like it-cheapens their image, and quite frankly, portrays themselves as some kind of joke. If this is truly worthy of their time, then the world must be a pretty good place for animals.

Quite frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if the police put in a new policy of drawing their weapons for routine traffic stops. You can’t declare war on an entire profession and not expect them to fight back.
If I was a cop, I would, or at the very least, have my hand on it and a finger on the holster release and be damn sure that there's a round in the chamber.
And conversely you can't declare an entire population of people to be potentially violent offenders. The VAST majority of people that police encounter are not a threat and don't deserve to be treated as such.
Politically, a policy like that could never become an approved practice, but most departments allow for judgement calls. On many stops the weapon is drawn and along side the officer's body until control of the stop is established. Most officer's approach even the most common stops with their hand on their weapon and this is one of the things motorists complain about the most.
This officer died as part of a fugitive task force while serving a felony arrest warrant for an earlier shooting. This is probably one of the highest risk duties an officer could have. While I cannot comment on their tactics until more info comes out. A new parent with a premature baby still in the hospital (since February 17) & about to come home in a day, should not have been assigned to this high risk task that requires full concentration. This goes for any officer, male or female.

Is there suddenly a shortage of jewelry stores? They apparently liked the service well enough to recommend it, yet because of a sign, now suddenly they’re ticked off? Simple solution-cancel the order, and go to another store. Problem solved.
That's okay dwsmokin. I, and others like myself, will be there too pick up the slack. In fact, I will purchase an extra 2 packs too make up the difference.
I quit buying a long time ago! They donate to planned parenthood. All I needed to know! Using girls to sell their cookies, then donate to garbage like that.. No thanks! They are in decline and its their own fault.
Don't all those male elves living in the same tree exhibit some suspicious behavior?

Funny thing-there are thousands and thousands of videos on YouTube, and they all have one unique thing in common-nobody HAS to watch any of them. If they don’t like it-don’t watch it. That simple.

Amazing isn’t it? “Please don’t show any video that portrays me as the dumbazz I am”. Sad thing is, this idiot-and others like him-think they’re being righteous. Sad.

Agreed. I like these guys. Fair is fair…or is it? These dudes will be vilified, if for no other reason than pointing out blatant hypocrisy. Too bad-I’ll support them.

Funny how it’s always “someone” who complains. I guess it depends on who the “someone” is.

Seems to be in Baltimore. Or Ferguson. Or whatever Dem-led city happens to be in the news.

Yep-but that’s his point isn’t it? I don’t care for Stewart, but he understands one thing-once you start restricting freedoms, it’s only a matter of time before someone is offended by his. The same right he has to offend Christians also protects the cartoonists. I find it odd that Christians, Jews, HIndu, etc., have all been fair game for years-yet Muslims are supposed to be accorded special status because of what? It’s all getting very tiresome.

He should have done everyone a favor and done that first.

Good point Glenn. I do find it odd that the same people so intent on protecting one’s right to burn the flag-and thus exercise their first amendment right-tend to vilify others for flying the flag, and thus exercising their own first amendment right. It seems their support of “free speech” is contingent upon your viewpoint before speaking.
I don't agree with Mr Beck's premise that left is supposed to have all these "rebels". On the contrary the left strives for complete submission and conformity (as does Islam). To exist in the left you have to think, speak and behave as the leftist orthodoxy of the day dictates. Mr Beck confuses the left's overtures to revolution with rebellion. Rebellion is to act outside of what's expected and taught. Revolution is to change order of things. The left frowns on rebels because rebels don't conform and don't do what they're told. On the other hand the left is littered with dead revolutionaries who were willing to kill and die for their utopian, homogenized society (again...like Islam).

Of course he is. But hey, it’s his 250K, and if he spends it all on a massive strip club party, that’s a lot of cash being redistributed. Some girls may buy clothes, or a car, or whatever. I don’t care for him personally, but the more he spends, the more other people benefit. Rather see him spend it than the government take it and distribute it their way.

Clinton buddy Mark Rich left the US to avoid paying over $40 mil in taxes. This ain’t new-the Dems have been letting their 1% brethren slide for years.

From the days of Clinton buddy Mark Rich leaving the US to avoid paying over $40 mil in taxes. to Rev. Al, Tim, the whole MSNBC gang, and now George. Is it me, or does it seem that a whole lot of Democrats-who can’t wait to raise our taxes-never seem to pay their own?
Smokin I'd say you have it right. Connected big demoncat/prog donors skate.
I bet he'll pay with a smile knowing that the money's going to a good cause. Isn't this the same tax dodge thàt Romney did that kept him from releasing his tax returns? No, what Romney did in 2009 was accept an amnesty deal with the IRS to escape prosecution for having funds in illegal tax shelters.
If the commie slime ball was eager to put his ill gotten gain into something worthy he would have already paid. Reality.

I notice there were no riots or protests when the two black kids were killed execution style by gang bangers in Philly a couple years back. Or the black honor student shot by black thugs in Chicago. In fact, it seems that there have been more innocent black kids killed by blacks than not-so-innocent black men who died at the hands of the police. I just have to wonder where the outrage is for these kids.

When I was a kid there were no plastic bags. The grocery used paper-which were always folded neatly in a drawer at home, to be re-used as lunch bags, carry bags, or biodegradable garbage bags. Only started using plastic because some environmentalists got ticked at all the trees ( a renewable resource) being used for the paper. There are just some people that will never be happy. Ever.
And paper bags had a higher chance of being roaches home in your groceries. We had that happen several times. You THINK your grocery store is clean and sanitary...
I used to use the big brown paper bags to cover my school text books. My Mom used to use them to put in our kitchen garbage can with the top edge folded down to keep it open as it sat in the garbage can. I don't have a reuse for those stupid plastic bags, other than to store more plastic bags in them. I wish they would bring back those paper bags, they just make more sense to me.
