Man arrested for burning Mexican Flag


A Tucson man was arrested Tuesday for his role in the burning of a Mexican flag as part of a counterprotest at a pro-immigration rally.

At about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Tucson police cited Roy Warden, 58, on suspicion of assault, criminal damage and reckless burning, and then released him, according to Sgt. Decio Hopffer.

GOP Bloggers points out that if you burn an America Flag in America that is freedom of speech. It is either none or all. You can destroy our flag, but not there's. Do you agree with that? Or should that be changed?

Sorry, Hugging is dangerous!?

Now come on people this is as stupid as banning patriotic clothing.

A Maynard family is outraged after they said their daughter was forced to write a letter of apology for hugging a classmate. The parents said children should not be disciplined for being affectionate. The school said the child lifted her classmate off the ground.

I would be outraged to, come on now. This is going to be posted under America Banned. Hugging? This stuff gets me more mad every day!

“Patriotic” cloths ban

This makes me very angry.

The immigration debate and demonstrations caused a middle school in Adams County to change their dress code.

Students at Shaw Heights Middle School are no longer allowed to wear anything that's patriotic, including camouflage pants, because they have become a political symbol for a version of patriotism.

"It upsets me that we cannot support our troops, the military," said Kirsten Golgart, an eighth grader who was told she'd be suspended if she didn't change her clothes. "We can't support our country. If we're American, I think we should be proud to be an American."

A letter went home to parents last week that explained for student safety, no clothes were allowed with political messages or flags of any sort.

Well this is out of line. In America we should be able to wear what ever we want, especially if it is Patriotic. Please people do you see whats going on. You can't even support the military!
