    The most reasoned response so far!

    It wasn't...his "edit" was erasing mentioning the kid's grandpa being a drunkard.

    These are my thoughts exactly, I mean really what were the specific threats to the boy's safety. The person that made the decision to have the flag removed was taking the easy way out apparently. Sounds as though some other nationality must have taken this as a "statement" against theirs, and therefore were "offended". This folks, is what should have been addressed by the superintendant in the news clip.:steamed:

    ETA, so after watching some of this clips from page 4, I now realize that flying certain flags is just like wearing gang colors to some people. Ever seen those Perkins flags? I think that we could chip in to buy one for Cody.

    Speak when you know what you are talking about. Texas (or CA for that matter) didn't let in any Mexicans. The federal government is the one that determines if foreign nationals are let in. The state has no control over that.

    This is America. The school didn't want to deal with the Hispanics so they told the boy to take it down. Culturally sensitive of them, and perhaps lower effort.

    But this is America. I would be pretty willing to bet that the kid knew what was up in the school, and choose to live as an American with pride. Like almost all Americans, he was willing to take the risk for his flag and country. If he got his butt kicked for it, it would have been fine. Then there would have been a swift and just response as the kids are hauled off to prison.

    The fact is that the Hispanic base was a problem, and he knew the kid would not be. Rather than protect the kid and respect the flag, he gave into the thugs and took the flag down. Isn't that called surrender?

    This is the mentality that is teaching the children. The future leaders (Obama's) are growing up indoctrinated with this stuff. This is your tax dollars at work.

    This is exactly the mentality that brought to UK to its current nightmare condition.

    I hoped the US would be the last bastion, the holdouts, but apparently not.

    It's interesting that adm chose to go after the kid doing nothing wrong and ask him to remove the flag, instead of going after and expelling the kids making threats.
    The kid is way above average in maturity and at least the school reconsidered their actions.

    Good. I hope they get many. I don't expect my email to get answered. It wasn't very friendly.
