    How ironic that the name of the school has the work "creative" in it and the kid, if he was pretending the toy was a gun, he was using his imagination and using the toy "creatively". An irony that I am sure would be lost on the jackass teacher that caused the problem here.
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    Here it says the boy and 2 other kids said the words ban bang were never used. He gets suspended indefinitely. To be fair there is a meeting at 7:30 the next day.

    Sounds like a a case of he he said she said but between a few kids and an adult. How is that what the kids say seems to have gotten nowhere yet if a kid even whispers about child abuse they are believed whether or not it is true? Are we to believe kids situationally?
    Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    I suppose thats one way to look at it. I was looking at it from the perspective that even if the 9 yr. old boy lobbed his toy top at his friends and said KA-BOOM KA-BOOM who really cares. It a kid and his imagination. Normal boys do this. They are genetically designed to pull the legs off of grasshoppers,,,then squish them and say " OH cool look at this". It doesn't mean they will grow up and torture people.

    40 years ago there would't be a boy left in any school any where if they did back then what they do today.

    What a weird time it is to be a kid.
    We are witnessing the de-evolution of man kind,,,doesnt have to take millions of years.
    Roughly 3 or 4 decades (. Next they will have their balls removed at birth.

    I agree with you about using your imagination. I made toy guns out sticks. I don't get how anyone can think kids won't be creative. And when the news sensationalizes shootings, many tv shows showing it, and many video games showing it why wouldn't a boy create a gun out something?

    BTW We used to squeeze the fireflies to keep them glowing.

    That kid is gonna be pissed when they finally teach the first amendment.
    During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking.
    One said to the other..."The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn ALL this stuff you will never use in the real world."

    Good grief! In their own yards and this BS is happening. Need to have a bunch folks at the next school board meeting.
