This is about the dumbest thing we have reported on in quite some time.

Last week, you showed the story about the northern California boy who was riding his bike to school. He became a point of controversy because when he rode his bike to school it stuck an American flag on the back of it.

The school administration told him to quit doing that. When he politely asked why? He was told some of the Hispanic kids didn't like it and they feared and an uprising. Remember, this was the same school last year that allowed Mexican kids to bring Mexican flags for Cinco de Mayo.

He told the boy with the American flag- please don't  bring that to school anymore.

Well, the story was picked up all over the country. And after the school administration could not really give a reason why the little kid couldn't stick the American flag on the back of his bike anymore, the school backed down.

Let me get this straight...although it is California, this is the still the United States of America. The bicycle , flag- carrying kid was doing this to honor American vets. And he was told not to bring that flag to school anymore because the school didn't want any problems from other students and parents of a different culture that might be offended.

Common sense wins out this time.

But, what about next time?

We never get the leaders we want, but we ALWAYS get the leaders we deserve because they reflect the values of the people they serve. I just got back from two weeks in California and trust me, the same applies. Tea Party people run off both Conservative or Liberal guys like Delay or anyone else who does not represent our values.

We have not called for the waking papers to be handed to the school leadership, that has aproblem with our flag.
Why not?
The Union? The Libs? Lets get it done.

That is the difference between Tea Party Conservatives who throw the bums out who do not represent our values, and the Liberal ENABLERS who just keep re-electing the same disfunctional representatives just because they are the same race, or have the same gay agenda or will get them their disabling free lunch. This is why Libs never learn life lessons of sulf-sufficiency and have to redistribute the wealth from those who DO.

Sarah Palin stays true to her values which are CONSTITUTIONALLY correct. This is why you fear her. This is why we will crush you and your failed Political correctness again in 2012. The adults are taking back the country from the Children in Adult bodies so the freedoms of the real children to express patriotism will remain alive in America.

NOW TELL ME WHERE THE "TEA PARTY" ARE ON THIS ONE! THEY ONLY CLEAN OUT WHAT IS NOT GOING THEIR WAY, IS WHAT WE SEE.

ALSO WHY AREN'T WE HEARING ANYTHING ON TOM DELAY AND HIS TRAIL ON LAUNDING MONEY? REMEMBER HOW IS WAS ON EVERY NEWS ABOUT MARTHA STEWART? LIKE I SAID JUST WHAT THEY WANT US TO HEAR.

ALSO PISTOL PALIN TELL HOW THE TEA PARTY AND REPUBLICANS WORK. JUST PUT SMART MOUTH (THE LIPSTICK KISSING PIG) OUT THERE AND THEY WILL WIN.

AND THIS HAS TO DO WITH............??????

DEFINITELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE NAME HONESTY???
