Little Over the Top?

  • A Colorado second-grader may be suspended from his elementary school after he disobeyed a key rule of no weapons, real or imaginary, when he tossed an imaginary grenade Friday during recess and went, 'pshhh,' to indicate that the imaginary device detonated, KDVR.com reported.

    Alex Watkins,7, who attends Mary Blair Elementary in Loveland, said he was playing the game "Rescue the World." He plays the role of a heroic soldier out to rid the world of an evil threat.

    His duties led him to throw the imaginary grenade into a box he pretended contained evil forces. He said he didn't make any threats and was playing by himself, KDVR.com reported.
Somewhere else, a boy got suspended for making a "gun" with his index finger and thumb. What the hell is wrong with this country?

it's not the country, it's the miscreant administrators and rabbit balled teachers running many public schools.


they want to rid the world, via childhood indoctrinations, of all who embrace the perspective, expressed so elegantly, of the saying, "fuck 'em, if they can't take a joke."

ANALYSIS: Disciplining children over fake guns may be wrong lesson

By Vera H-C Chan

A 5-year-old faced with a pile of Legos did what boys have done since the dawn of time: He fashioned a weapon, ran about and made shooting sounds.

That's when the Massachusetts elementary school sent a letter to his parents and warned that the next time, their son Joe would be suspended. "I said listen, he's a 5-year-old, I think maybe a redirection would be more appropriate," his mother, Sheila Cruz, told a local radio station. "She (the principal) said, 'it's a threat to other children, and other children could have been scared.'"

What's wrong with this country is that the subversive socialists have taken over. They want to soften us up so we're easier to take over. It will only work up here in liberal pansy land. The good ole' boys in the sticks will be the salvation of this country.

Why is it that none of the disturbed and evil men, who steal guns, then go and kill movie-goers and children in school, has ever been identified as a conservative NRA member?





































Ft Hood~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim
Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals
Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat
Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal
Connecticut School Shooter- ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians
Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats.
INTERESTING, isn't it?

Maybe Democrats shouldn't have guns! And most of the teachers are what? Oh that's right,Democrat's

My kid got suspended for that ten years ago. Here in Chicago, when he was in second grade. On his suspension day I took him to Illinois Gun Works and taught him to use my guns safely and correctly. And I sent pictures back to his teacher and said, "since your reaction to this was so wrong, I did your job and spent the day teaching him something. I bet he learned more from me."

I'd like to say I won that one, but I ended up marrying the teacher, and she's spent the last 8 years grinding me into submission.

I've got a kid ready to start school. He plays good guy/bad guy. He plays cops and robbers. He plays save the world.

We've already been working with him on how he can't "play" guns or say he's going to blow something up to save the world while at school because he'll get in trouble. (We've had 5 in school before him, all girls; only one played blow-em-up or save the world.)

All because liberal adults working in and in charge of our schools have lost their decision-making ability. Their ability to reason. Their ability to interact and redirect children. Their ability to see age-appropriate behavior for what it is.

We might be overworried here, though; not much time for interaction in the schools now that everything is focused on testing, testing, testing and the kids go like zombies from class to class to class with no breaks in between.

Having identified this problem, the worthies are simply setting the stage to eliminate unnecessarily violent video games, movies and television shows. For everyone's good.

Next up: eliminating the covert violence of capitalism.

None of this violates the First Amendmant, by the way, because these nice folks have such pure hearts.

So just shut up and get out of the way. And deposit your freedoms in the trash bin by the door on your way out.

Un-fucking-real. Sad day for America...again.

On a lighter note, though, this story immediately reminded me of the Family Guy episode where the Griffins are stuck in the house riding out a storm. Trying to find things to do to pass the time, they play "Finger Bang" - shooting each other with guns shaped from their fingers. Absolutely hysterical stuff.

Peter: "No one wants to get fingerbanged by you, Meg".
Lois: "Yeah. Why don't you go do that to yourself, Meg".

Google..Mattel toy guns.. from the 50's and 60's. Guns were promoted as a wonderful toy to help children imagine and expand their minds. No violence,no killing.Kids grew up to be healthy and strong,responsible members of society.If I ventured to state what has happened since someone would deflect the blame and call me...You guessed it...racist.

A big issue these days is that these Nanny Statists will not let boys be boys. Any boy that is slightly hyper or outgoing is labeled as having ADD and drugged up. Millions of kids are drugged up when they're simply being themselves.

Statist who handle kids like this boy should be publicly shamed and then tarred and feathered.

I can tell you in two words...female teachers. I have watched over the years as these women have attempted, and mostly succeeded in completely emasculating young boys. Football and baseball arent allowed at recess or lunch, but soccer ( a game which places both sexes at a young age on equal par because no strength is needed)is ok. Homework assignments such as book reports which now require the kids to do art projects such as sewing and glitter and paste use are now mandated.

Its happening at every level of education. We dont attempt to rise to your level, instead we bring you down to ours. You want advanced math classes, sorry, but instead we will teach you at 2 to 3 grades below your capability so that we dont leave (fill in the blank of your favorite underprivilged child's name) behind.

You want to play football or baseball at lunchtime? But darling Amber and Tiffany cant do that...no! You must play soccer or no sports for you!

You want to play Army...or cops and robbers??? OMG!!!! How revolting that you act as a little boy. No, but you can play "house" or cut out paper dolls.

And now imagine poor Bobby is from a one parent (female) household...where does this kid obtain any masculine trait development?

At home? Not with Mom...(no offense to moms). At school? Are you kidding?

There needs to be some balance of strong male role models for young boys in society. It cant be all this female generated bullshit of gender neutral (aka anti male)training.

Go thru any toy catalog and you will see what I mean. The toys that are now accepted by society have now been so cleansed of anything that hints of traditional boyhood. Its dolls (action figures), and video games. No more toy guns, no more footballs, no more punching bags.

10 to 1 it was a female that ratted this poor kid out for playing with a make believe grenade.
