He supported the views of his parents...because that is his family.

That can be said for both sides.
Why are the NeoCon on the Right so intolerant of minorities, gays, unions ...etc....etc?
No, I'm sorry but you are way off base and completely out of touch with reality because you keep letting the lame stream media dictate what they want you to believe.
Truth is, there are minorities, gays and union members that happen to vote Republican,
the only difference is they/we are treated as individuals and Americans first and not clumped and segregated into groups as they are in the Democrat party.
Btw, I'm a minority.

This is my neighborhood. Same bus company and same route, except different schools. The buses swing through three times in the AM and three times in the afternoon. LOL, the boy's bus just literally drove by my house while I was typing. (My daughter gets dropped off in an hour) Funny coincidence. Anyway, this boy goes to the Catholic School and my daughter goes to the public school down the street. The school district has three different start and end times to best utilize the school bus routes.
As soon as I heard about this (through the neighborhood mill), I called the bus company and said I was disappointed in the way this situation was handled and if I find they moved her to my daughter or son's route, I would pull them from the bus and call the news station. This is equivalent to an adult bullying a child. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!
By the way, this started with the bus driver antagonizing the kid, because his house has a Romney sign in their yard. This went on for a bit and escalated to the abortion comment.
The most dispicable part is that this is the CATHOLIC bus route. The driver KNOWS the kid goes to Catholic school,SHE BRINGS HIM THERE! So, not only is it bullying (IMO), it's on another level. It would be a 'hate crime' if he was attending a Mosque or Muslim school.edit on 11-10-2012 by SourGrapes because: (no reason given)edit on 11-10-2012 by SourGrapes because: (no reason given)

But your children are not on that bus, yet you called the bus company on the basis of the grapevine? Please God I never have to be in court with you as a juror.
A 79 year old female school bus driver obviously was none too please to see a Romney/Ryan sign in the yard of a 12 year old boy she picked up. She engaged the child in a political debate to which he replied that his family is pro-life and Obama is pro-abortion.
