The way I see this is that we are always bending over backwards to honor everybody else's perception of their rights but fail to stand our ground on what is our rights! We need to stand our ground and tell those who don't like the way that we do things in our country to go back to where ever they came from because we are Americans!

I would have stood my grounds if I was that student and told that school official that there is also a Freedom of Speech in the United States. Since that...

I would have stood my grounds if I was that student and told that school official that there is also a Freedom of Speech in the United States. Since that school does not provide the clothing for me then I will wear whatever I desire as long as it covers my body in s respectful manner.

I am a US Navy Vet. There is absolutely NOTHNIG wrong wearing a military T Shirt. I appreciate and respect the boy's patriotism. Crossed guns on the T Shirt SO WHAT? Weapons are a part of every single US Marine. This young man has my eternal support!

The Marines are our heroes. What nitwit or nitwits came up with this idiotic posture? When we deny what made ths country great, we weaken the moral fabric of the nation. But never fear, Janet Napolitano is releasing illegal aliens from prison, who are "not dangerous, just criminals".

The request to remove the T-Shirt is what you are missing, there are 2 riffles on the shirt. I'd bet that if he came with one that did not have the riffles, he would be fine, try it.

Let's start with the kid who MUST HAVE BEEN OFFENDED when they told him to take off the shirt. What about his parents, weren't they offended? How about me? I am offended to hear about this foolishness. I am offended on several levels: They insulted the U.S. Marines who had no small part to play in defending our rights to express ourselves (I am including the nincompoops that run the school and their bosses); They bit the hand that feeds them by insulting taxpayers (all taxpayers in a class)...

This all started when we took God and the Bible out of school.

I myself am a vet of the Viet Nam era. I fully support our military and all they do to keep our beloved country free. The first time I stood and saluted the flag when taps was being blown and I was in full uniform I had tears in my eyes. I still tear up when our flag passes by. What is our country coming to anyway? Take prayer out of our schoools and our children rebell. Take God out of our pledge of Allegence and the country falls apart.
