Good news update!

Jared returned to school wearing the same 2nd Amendment shirt, along with 100 of his classmates. None were arrested or suspended.

More advertising for the home school movement.

Unfortunately it takes most people getting burned to fear fire. But daily more and more "ordinary people" are getting trampled by this or that aspect of state power.

Hunger is the ultimate awakening. That's still a ways off for most people.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.


GOA/NRA day.

All pro gun families wear a GOA or NRA T-shirt on a certain day. Just write GOA OR NRA on a T-shirt, front and back. Wear it proudly. Wear it everywhere. Let's see the school system arrest 250,000 kids on a given day.

I'll be calling the GOA/NRA next week, when they reopen. They can announce it on their websites/ flyers and make it happen.

Suspended?! Arrested?!

I hope they do fight this to see that the boy's school record *remains* untarnished. If the school feels so strongly about the issue, their only legitimate recourse would be to officially change the dress code - AFTER WHICH it would be in effect.

How do you terrorize an entire school?

Make an example of one child. Every kid in that school will have a deep emotional aversion to anything related to guns now. All the kid did was wear a T-shirt. At the absolute MOST, if the administrators are SOOOOOO afraid of a PICTURE of a gun, they could have asked him to turn it inside and out not wear it in the future. THEY disrupted the educational process, not him.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

im rooting for the next ron

im rooting for the next ron paul to be born from stuff like this, i cant believe one or two wont feel the wrongness, hell if i think about it, seems like ive felt the wrongness all my life, but i never had this "opportunity" to see it first hand, and at such an early age......yeah, if im right, it would take someone with iron steel to withstand the conditioning, imagine someone like that, with values, and a sharp mind tempered by an experience, making him/her the person they are, long shot i know, but i suspect government will be giving many people the "opportunity"

i know its wishfull, but gosh darnit, its hope for the future
