Thank God for that. I'm glad to be the age I am. I won't have to deal with the hard times to come. I do worry for my children and feel sorry for the younger generation. They won't know what they have lost till it's gone.
Did you see/hear about the 14 year old boy at a Logan WV. High School who was arrested and taken to jail , not for theft or cheating or fighting, but for wearing a T-shirt with " NRA" and and "Protect Your Rights" written on it with a picture of a hunting rifle. He belonged to a local gun club. His teacher demanded he take the shirt off,but the boy would not.
His dad had to leave work and go to the jail to get him out.
Towns people were going to gather in front of the school Monday morning in support .
Jarred is back in school,but
the dad vows it's not over yet. Good for him.
They don't allow T shirts with profanity on them, but there's no rules about anything else. There's a statue of a solider with a gun and a grenade in his hand in the school yard.
So to sum it up, I guess you can't wear a simple T shirt with something that the left doesn't like, and it's "their right" to have you arrested for it.[ No, nobody's trying to take your rights away, are they?]
Our rights were being eroded years ago, Syl. When my daughter started high school some years back, her mother and grandmother took her to the Mall for school clothes, sneakers, sweats and gym clothes.$500 later, we learned that half the color combos were not allowed. Black jeans, yellow T, dark blue tops, black jeans, no red and black either ....and that was the school colors, only to be worn on Friday's. No Converse tennies with the moon and stars on the ankle.....or earrings with bunnies, similar to Playboy style. No jeans with black T's, or yellow anything.
I think I mentioned we are originally from the suburbs of Chicago. The dress codes were harsh there and one day we forgot and she wore a yellow sweatshirt with purple on it and black jeans. She was taken to the office and forced to go to her gym locker for her white gym T-shirt. At noon she called me in tears and asked me to bring her another top.
Why do you think we left that area? All the above mentioned combos were Mexican gang colors, not allowed in school.
It was bad then, and friends tell me it's worse now. All kids must pass through a metal detector. No purses allowed by the girls. All carry-on's must be mesh....so teachers can see through them.
The good ole USA...!!!!!
