    You can bet your butt I'd be wearing everything red, white blue or that has the image of our National colors on it every day.

    I find it ABSURD in the extreme that ANY government institution at ANY level in this Nation would ban our National colors. Obviously there are complete idiots with too much control in this country.

    So what? Kids fight, there's still going to be tension. The way to resolve that is not by banning everything and hoping that'll make it better. Most my clothes I wear to school have something patriotic on them. I guess I should stop wearing a shirt to school, if that happens here (which I'll do, I'll take pictures, too).

    Does it strike anyone else here that this whole immigration issue has been hijacked by the very people (illegal immigrants) who are making demands and telling the rest of us who pay their benefits and are legal residents to shove it???

    We have schools banning the American flag to appease illegals, we have illegals marching to stay here illegally, and the people who stand to lose from all this are told to shut up and stay out of it.

    Whose country is this anymore???

    I heard that a hs girl wore a red sweater, white polo, and blue jeans. She was warned that if she wore them again, she would be suspended! If this is true, expect some lawsuits, pronto. See Tinker v. Des Moines.
