By that logic it's ok to send kids to school with Shirts saying "I Hate White People" or "I Hate Black people" because there not violence drugs or sex in it?
Then it must be ok for kids to go to school with shirts saying "My teacher drinks poo".
It's just one of those things you don't do.
Or at least wait for Obama to screw up before calling him a terrorist.
"Bush & republics attacked 9/11" would be more appropriate.
Supporting people that bombed their own citizens is not what Principals should allow all the other kids support.
When other kids see shirts like this they will support more Bush terrorism & corruption which I would hope some of these teachers have seance to teach that to the kids.
It's a school, place for kids to learn, not a place to wear whatever you want as long as theres no drugs, violence & sex.
You know how many loops hole there are around rule you just made up.
It's just common seance.
Yeah I know im a little bias but I don't think that counts when you talking about a mass murderer vs a so far clean guy.

Then a bunch of terrorists killed 4000 or so Americans so we went where they live (Afghanistan) and showed them that we can defend ourselves pretty well. Some people seem to forget. It isnt like we weren't fair about it. We called up the Taliban and said hand Osama over or we are going to take care of it our way and you are not gonna like the result. They refused. It was their choice.

However much I don't agree with the message of the shirt, I do believe that as long as it isn't offensive to any other children or staff(I don't see how it could be), it should be allowed. Now whether or not he was the instrument of his ignorant, redneck parents, that is another issue entirely.
