I think that it is absolutely ridiculous that we can't hang our flag in our own country because it might offend others. Go back to where you f****** came from then. Why would they live in AMERICA and not expect to see and American flag everywhere you go? If OUR country is offensive to somebody then go somewhere else. YOU are offending us by coming to our country and making us change things. This makes me so mad

Go back where you came from???? How dare you! Jehovah's Witnesses have fought harder for your "god given" rights of freedom of speech and religion than you or anyone else you know. Have some respect for goodness sake and stop being such a bigot.

sounds like another classroom case of taking collectivism way too far.

Hope the kid gets his justice and is able to fly the flag high

Yes they would, whoever ran America, whether british, american or other, witnesses would still exist. Your point is invalid. Witnesses respect the flag, but don't need to go to the extent of idolising it by making it a god and pledging allegiance to it.

That dang 'ol teacher! I heard she is a communist and a cannibal, and it's been reported by some that she forces her class to burn the flag every friday, while they scream 'death to america'

Really, I saw it on FOX, so you KNOW its true.

Your hearsay of a post...just an off topic rant that is pure emotion on your part.

Wrong. You should Google better. It's pooling the resources of the people to redistribute for the good of the people. That means schools, welfare, unemployment, parks, etc. You need a Civics class.


You are close to the definition of Socialism, yet you are leaving something out here.



1: any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods

2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state

3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

Like all your other posts you dont need sources on. This site's motto is Deny Ignorance.

Yes, if there is actual evidence presented that is undeniable i will tend to accept it. I have no reason to defend this IMF guy. Im merely pointing out that the media is known to lie, and that high powered officials are known to smear the heck out of each other in the public eye for their own reasons. www.abovetopsecret.com...

I think he is pointing out the irony that you posted a link to a biased story which was based purely on here-say and that you pushed a certain agenda with it. Either that or he is just being sarcastic.

He's just trolling me Caleb. But I'm glad YOU can understand irony and sarcasm.

Hmm, I read the article and all I see is a kid and an adult throwing a tantrum because the kid didn't get to hang his picture. They then blame it on the JW kid, and then go on to say his character was defamed and his civil liberties were violated? What in God's name? None of that even makes sense.
If anything it seems like the teacher just didnt want any picture hung because that wasn't the purpose of "free draw" time.
I may be wrong but this kid and dad seem like a bunch of drama punks.

I dont wanna take a stance in this debate but when i was young, i used to watch South Park as a windows of the american society. One of many windows that can depict the good and the wrong of a society. Now 10-15 later i cant believe how accurate these guys at South Park was. All the debates about sexuality, religions, educations. Its unbelievable, dont you think we should debate about other more important issues? Like, the numbers of ppl who doesn't have access to schools in the world or in america?

After all, its the reason why i pick the news here on ATS. Theres no Fox around.
Think about it, that story used the same tactic as a South Park pattern.
They throws a line in the lake with a nice bait and then FISH ON!!1
or the definition of trolling.

btw i not trying to say that i know better or all, at 1st i would be mad but i'm pretty sure we should blame the TV and their evil patterns to divide lol. peace

LOL, did you know that South Park is owned by Fox news, aka Faux news.
And Murdoch owns Fox news.

I guess if someone wanted to use hatred and intolerance as a weapon of mass destruction to get the good ole USA to implode upon itself, it wouldn't be too hard to find the mechanism's by which to do that, would it?

It doesn't change anything but no.

Viacom ---> MTV Networks ---> Comedy Central.

I would agree with you about the title. Its provacative I think that they did it on purpose.
This was a UK news paper...however not Fox news.

But they sure knew how to pick the provocative title.

JW's are not offended by the Flag, per say. They view the pledge as an act of idolatry. Usually they make no fuss about the flag being flown, or put in print, they just don't participate, so I'm a little puzzled by this story.
