Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

Don't Make YouR PledgE out to the ACLU

ACLU Calls on Public Schools Across Maryland to
“Pledge Allegiance” to Students’ First Amendment Rights

"In response to a disturbing trend in public schools across Maryland of students being harassed for declining to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance, the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland is calling on school officials to take action to ensure teachers and administrators understand the First Amendment rights of students."

Parents from Frederick County, Carroll County, Baltimore County, Prince George’s County, and St. Mary’s County have asked for the ACLU’s help in the past few months, after their children have been physically forced to salute the U.S. Flag, harassed for declining to say the Pledge of Allegiance, or denied the right to wear T-shirts critical of the Bush Administration. The ACLU of Maryland believes these troubling incidents need to be addressed on both county and state levels to ensure that teachers and students understand that the recitation of the Pledge is not mandatory.

Blah blah blah...Reality Check: We ALL know that at the moment that speech (pro-life, pro-war, pro-death penalty) comes into conflict with the ACLU's holier than thou missions, they are in line to quell those words, and most certainly not in line to protect that speech.

Sure, students want to wear anti-Bush t-shirts..How bout anti-Muzlim t-shirts?..Does that pass the smell test?..Nah..I didn't think so. We musn't offend terrorists only the President of our Republic in their myopic view.

So let them rant on and keep on hatin',-taking every oppurtunity to highlight their convoluted political analysis. The more you pay attention the more you observe their forums becoming nothing more than an unchanging monologue.
But guess what?
Some of us have stopped listening a longggggggggg time ago.
