In case anyone doubts how ridiculous school "discipline" is getting, there's this:


An 8-year-old Maryland boy got a standing ovation and a lifetime membership to the National Rifle Association after being suspended from school for gnawing a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun.
At a Wednesday night fund-raiser for local Republicans, state legislator Nicholaus Kipke presented Josh Welch with the membership, which cost $550.
The boy, who was 7 at the time, was suspended March 1 from Park Elementary School in Anne Arundel County after school officials said he chewed a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun.

eta: If you read the link, he was actually trying to chew it into the shape of a mountain. Also, hopefully nobody already covered this.

My brother ( as a kid ) used to do that with some of his food for a laugh... He was like many young boys, fascinated by guns... Boys will be boys, and playing guns is a common thing with many of them... It doesn't mean any harm..

I lost count how often I saw him running around the street pretending he was shooting,( making fake machine gun noises ) with his young friends joining in.. The only time I didn't like it was when he had a water pistol...In those days, it was not seen as harmful or even offensive... Now days it is completely gone haywire !!!

Too many sensitive people, too much political correctness ...I mean, my dad as a kid used to play - Cowboys and Indians.. In this day and age that too can be classed as offensive... It should be called - Cowboys and Native Americans..but without the toy guns..!

We played this as kids (I'm 38, so not that long ago really). We actually tied each other to trees with clotheslines and pretended to scalp each other. We read a lot of older books.

Today we probably would be whisked off to a therapist.

My autistic son likes first person shooter games... he has great aim too. Sometimes he makes his hands like guns in stores and stuff and makes soft shooting noises and I have to quickly stop him from his happy daydreams. I wonder if someone will call the cops one day or something. It's all ridiculous.

Embrace the impossible.

whole new meaning to the old saying "eat lead dirt bag"

growing up in the sixties and seventies was , it seems, the last decade where kids could , in fact,  be kids. I feel so sorry for our children in this country now. Its so sad.

sadder yet is the possibility that a return to simple family values and common sense in our country's future, is not a possibility at all.

The public of that community should protest and call for a psychological evaluation on the school members who suspended the little boy. Can't have people with gun anxiety working in the school system.

A woman last year was bragging to me how her 4-year-old grandson could already play GTA. That is really not something to be proud of and such video games are not really suitable for that age group.

Pop-tarts might be too sugary for 7-year-olds as are sodas. Then we have high rates of obesity and diabetes as a national problem.

Now you all know the post above me is a off topic comment to suck you into another debate, right? So word to the wise, don't respond to that one, people.

Be careful, now...Mr. Progressive is very good. He plays on your emotions. lol.
