    There should be a law that any american can fly the american flag on any private property they own. This is just stupid.

    Tell them what you think!

    I guess I don't understand what makes the moron school officials think they should care about every complaint.

    Have also sent one. Until Americans start to speak up for American values, they will be trampled. How is it you can have hispanic days at a school, but not fly an American flag?

    If there are really any "racial tensions" or "uprisings" on account of this kids flag, then maybe the behavioral problem is on the part of the complainers, and not the kid flying the flag.

    Anyone who'd use the mere sight of an American flag to do violence has obviously got criminal intent in their head anyway, so it's that person, and not the flag that needs to be removed from the school.

    Would someone please explain why displaying an American flag would "cause racial tensions"?
    I must have missed something. That's a new one on me.

    Wish the schools would pay as much attention to Bullying complaints.

    Looks to me as though we are getting closer to armed rebellion... had enough yet? Do we need to take more? The transgressions against the people of this nation continue to grow. Had enough yet? How's that vote working for ya?

    Yeah I am asking the questions that most are thinking but do damn scared to ask. I am tired of the BS, tired of watching a country I was once proud of disintegrate into a socialist nanny state of intolerance for anything American. How about you? Had enough yet? Or do you have to take more?

    How the hell do you survive in that town you live in (where I'm from)? I didn't have enough co-resistance so I just got out of there.

    Denair Unified School District Superintendent Edward Parraz said Cody Alicea, 13, was told not to fly the U.S. flag from his bike while at Denair Middle School after complaints from other students, KCRA-TV, Sacramento, Calif., reported.

    "(The) First Amendment is important," Parraz said. "We want the kids to respect it, understand it, and with that comes a responsibility."

    Parraz said racial tensions boiled over at the school this year around the Cinco de Mayo holiday.

    "Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they'll display it, and then of course the kids would do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don't really want," Parraz said. "We want them to appreciate the cultures."

    Everyone has the right to fly the flag of their choosing. Everyone has the right piss and moan about others' flags. NO ONE has the right to harass or assault someone over their flag or whining. The school needs to address any unlawful manifestations of the "tensions," not try to head them off.
