Oh to live in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave

You know, living with freedoms like we do in the United States means you need to put up with a lot of stuff.

You need to listen to people yelling and screaming on the street while carrying sandwich boards exclaiming how this is bad and that is bad...but that's the problem with Free speech works for good and it works for the you can't say Free Speech is only good if you have something important to say, it means you also have to listen to the loonies as well.

Plus, living in the land of the free has a lot of regulations...seriously, do you know how many laws there are regarding driving a car....for a free country there are a lot of rules we need to follow, like having a license, insurance, etc.

There's a school in Virginia who's gotten themselves into a whole bunch of "trouble" now because last year they let some folks use their "backpack mail" system to send notes home regarding their Vacation Bible School first the school said no because their policy barred the "distribution of materials that were partisan or religious in nature." Well apparently the parent who asked this didn't like their "policy" and sicced their local County Counsel on them, and the school was forced to change it's policy.

But uh, some kids want to advertise their Pagan Holiday event....and they're going to do it through the "backpack mail" system......

Oh you know some parents are gonna be pissed off about this one dontcha?

So it's important that you realize, be careful what you wish may just get it, and so does everyone else!

Here's the story if you'd like to take a look at it.
