    Patriotism takes backseat to Mexican Holiday

    Court Backs High School in Flap Over American Flag T-Shirts

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/11/13/court-backs-high-school-in-flap-over-american-flag-t-shirts/?intcmp=trending

    A California school principal did not violate the freedom of speech of a group of students who wore American flags on their shirts on Cinco de Mayo when he told them to turn the shirts inside out or go home, a federal judge has ruled.


    Students sent home for offending Mexicans by wearing American flag t-shirts on Cinco De Mayo

    CA was handed over to Mexico a long time ago. The people in CA fell asleep at the wheel. Can't blame anybody but themselves for putting in high offices latinos who are looking to benefit Mexico and beyond and NOT California! The USA is next. It's that simple folks.

    I’m surprised the boys didn’t get charged with disorderly conduct.

    Evidently the American flag T-Shirts saying U.S.A. the boys were wearing were considered to be a form of profanity to the Mexican children. It must have been terrible to see such profane material.

    Profane material is defined as including language that denotes certain of those personally reviling epithets naturally tending to provoke violent resentment or denoting language so grossly offensive to members of the public who actually hear it as to amount to a nuisance.

    In a few places in this country if you want to display an american flag on your property you will be forced to take it down...

    However if you want to take that flag to the front lawn and set it on fire,or relieve yourself on it you will be allowed.In fact I'm sure some would cheer you on.

    Or you can be like Michelle Obama seen recently questioning a flag ceremony...
    She appears to be disgusted by the ceremony.It look like she asks her hubby..
    All this for a flag,then she shakes her head in disapproval?

    This country has changed so much in a short time in regards to respect for our flag.

    At this point, the rule of law has broken down. The judge in question should be taken out and beaten to within and inch of his life.

    No, if the purpose of that action is to clearly provoke violent confrontation, the principal did that right thing.

    On the previous Cinco de Mayo, Ware said, a group of Mexican-American students walked around with a Mexican flag, and a group of Anglo students responded by hoisting a makeshift American flag up a tree, chanting "U-S-A" and exchanging profanities and threats with the Latino youths.
