This is the second Presidential election in a row I've had my car vadalized.

Back in '04 I had several Kerry stickers unceremoniously peeled off my bumper (I put a new one on each time the old one got torn off), and my truck got keyed.

Yesterday someone took a Sharpie to my Obama sticker and went 'outside the lines' all over my bumper.

Nice!

Last time I did not put Kerry stickers on my car. This time I am taking the chance.
I just had yard signs. People stold several. I just got new ones. So much for their religious convictions.

You are aware Kerry isn't running this time around?


Well then, sounds like a safe time to sport a Kerry sticker then isn't it?

They're just upset that you aren't giving out equal bumper time.

Seems to me the RNC and the city did just that when they restricted freedom of assembly.

That being said, your kid's teacher is an asshat who doesn't know what education is. A real teacher would have asked the students:
- why people were rioting
- whether the police response was proportional
- what the two say about politics in America
Good teachers don't tell their students anything, they help them discover things.

Good teachers don't tell their students anything, they help them discover things abuse their trust by asking leading questions that are biased toward the teacher's own political viewpoint whilst feigning neutrality.

Ok, first of all, the RNC has nothing to do with law enforcement. That was the police. Period.

Second of all, they did not go around tear gassing and arresting everyone who was protesting. They only went after the small group of anarchists that go to every convention and just break windows and loot stores. Freedom of assembly does not equal freedom of property damage. Those idiots deserve to get gassed and arrested.

Because they're asshats.

Absolutely.

Nothing: this is a law-enforcement question; not a political one.

See what I did there? I demonstrated faith in my students' ability to think for themselves. Seems to me they'll as likely give the above answers as any others.

I asked my kid some questions today so he could learn to think for himself.

What do you think you should eat for breakfast? "Doughnuts and candy!"

Should you brush your teeth afterwards? "No"

Why do you think people brush their teeth? "Because they're ass hats"

Look at what he discovered for himself. He's so SMART now!
