That's already happened. Chicken fingers too I believe.

Lot of pussies out there.
High-Anus probably has quite a few.

We are Brethren. It is a peace church. I am a lot less hard core than most members, but still we didn't buy toy guns for our kids at first, but I have discovered that if a kid has a finger, they have a toy gun.

Yet another future responsible gun owner.

we should ban legos

5 year olds can make a gun out of anything? A straw, rubber bands, their fingers it doesn't really matter they'll turn it into a gun.

School superintendant's Coat of Arms. Not Legos™

But school officials say little Joe made the toy gun, then ran around the classroom, pointing it at other kids, and making shooting sounds.

The horror.

I drunk what: we should ban legos


You can ban legos all you want, but they'll just find a way to make Duplo guns.

Next up: Children caught playing "cops and robbers". The kids portraying the "robbers" jailed on conspiracy charges, "Cops" commended for their fine police work and promoted to playing detectives.

Man, I would have been expelled from my summer day camp SO HARD.  My friends and I were building guns out of lego all the time until we were caught and told not to do that anymore.

So we made knives.  When those were banned, we made grenades out of lego. Also banned shortly thereafter.

Then I started making complex (for a 3rd grader) lego sarcophagi, complete with a little man inside.  If that were now, I probably would have been dragged to a therapist.  I don't think they ever reported it to my parents, not that my parents would have given a shiat.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: Next up: Children caught playing "cops and robbers". The kids portraying the "robbers" jailed on conspiracy charges, "Cops" commended for their fine police work and promoted to playing detectives.


Surely the "cops" would also be jailed for impersonating a police officer?

"We're trying to create an atmosphere of respect for stupid farking rules through intimidation because we are too incompetent to use common sense or to respect kids who may not be familiar with how mind numbling stupid our rules are," says Barnstable School Superintendent Mary Czajkowski

According to Playground Law (§42-5-16, better known as the "I got you-- no you didn't" statute) they were well within their jurisdiction.

I like that we're sending kids incredibly mixed messages now. "Guns are our right as Americans, and all the cartoons you watch have guys with big guns, and you have toy guns and they're everywhere, but you also can't talk about them or play with them, because that will get you in trouble." Okaaaay.

Well, we've found this group out. How about a little "redirection" for them, as well?

That's because the so-called "public schools" are in fact Marxist Indoctrination Centers that intend to turn your kids into docile, unarmed Communist Liberals in the thrall of George Soros.

I think the majority needs to pull it's collective head out of it's ass. The school of thought that the actions of a handful of people out of a nation of 314 million that do horrific shiat justifies sweeping legislation that basically affects everyone with the exception of said handful of people is just and prudent is, quite frankly, farking retarded.

Horrific people will do horrific things, regardless of what the law says.

But hey, lets continue to fight a war on guns, seeing as the war on drugs made drugs basically nonexistent, the war on poverty eliminated homelessness, and the war on terror led to the longest period of world peace ever.

We obviously need a ban on 5 year old's.
 
2013-01-30 09:57:44 AM  
I used to make fun of people who homeschooled their kids. Now i'm thinking they have the right idea. Schools crack down way too much on normal childhood behaviour. Kid hugs someone else = sexual assault, kid builds lego gun= terrorist. It's so fu*king stupid....

Glad my kids are grown, and mostly done with school...

FTA: "We're trying to create an atmosphere of respect," says Barnstable School Superintendent Mary Czajkowski.

I can respect ignorant people, at least if that ignorance can be corrected, if it can be educated and the individual is open to becoming informed. I do however, have a problem with respecting people who are willfully ignorant.

Zero Tolerance policies err on the side of willful ignorance. If you want an atmosphere of respect, do away with them.

I have some friends that don't allow any sort of gun toys or television shows into their house they work very hard to keep guns out of their children's sight.

They were very proud until their eldest started taking bites out of his toast until it looked like a gun, then imaginarily shot all of his siblings. Now, all the children bite their toast to look like guns.

If the school's lego collection has those little pirate ship cannons, then they have absolutely NO room to discipline this child.

Or, even worse because it's so easily concealed...the lego pirate's Flintlock Pistol!

Which, now that I look at it blown-up, is quite phallic.

Liberal logic:

Telling you in one breath they don't want all guns banned, then searching a 6 year old girl in front of her class mates for having an "L" shaped piece of paper and suspending child armed with legos.

Guess we should bring back dodgeball now.  It isn't a gun.  You don't fire it.  It is round and bouncy like boobs.  And it can be used to separate the weak from the strong as Darwin intended.  No sound effects or legos needed.

Ok, but only if we can call it "battle-ball" like we did when I was in school.

"She (the principal) said, 'it's a threat to other children and other children could have been scared.'"

Thank GOD someone is finally acknowledging the terrible problem that is a Fear of Leggos. So many of us have suffered in silence for so long. I myself break into a cold sweat at the mere thought of those little interlocking plastic blocks. I am short of breath just from the pics in this thread.

Finally, FINALLY some compassion for this sufferers of this debilitating affliction.

we played a variant called "murder ball" in which a half-court basketball shot could win the game, and "out" players stood behind the opposing team and could be brought back in by catching a ball thrown over the court by their team.

Naturally, since you are a liberal -you are familiar with their logic.

This almost seems like Onion level area-person stupidity, does this dumb coont understand how the world works when you're a kid? Way to go on showing a 5-year old on how much the world sucks, and how most adults make it suck even more, shoulda given the kid a few more years to figure out that crap lesson.

I mean, I know when I see a kid pickup a long stick, there's no good that's going to come of it, after all i was once a kid and I know them sticks are SWORDS!

But the fewer threads he doesn't troll blaming nothing on conservatives, the less likely he is to not get ignored?

If I have kids, I'll strongly consider it. I know I felt like public school wasn't the ideal enviornment for me when I was in middle and high school, and then there's the constanst stream of stories like these that defy logic and reality. Plus last semester I sat next to a girl who was home-schooled and she was one of the genuinely nicest and friendliest people I've ever met. Never brought up any cuckoo religious views or red flags and lately she's been travelling all over the world. Can you tell I'm damn jealous of her life?

namegoeshere: "She (the principal) said, 'it's a threat to other children and other children could have been scared.'"


That's another of my biggest beefs with today's society. How about we wait until someone actually complains they were scared or offended before we decide it's a problem that needs fixing? Let's stop being offended or scared on others' behalf.
 
2013-01-30 10:54:26 AM  
They should fire everyone involved who even suggested the suspension.

Liberals are batshiat crazy. Our country has gone full retard.
