You’ve Just Got to Nip This Sort of Thing in the Bud

In Maryland, two 6-year-old boys were suspended while playing cops and robbers during recess and using their fingers to make imaginary guns.

Why? Were they using imaginary high-capacity magazines?

  1. All those involved in suspending these boys should be lined up along on the edge of a freezing cold swimming pool and given a few rounds of Slap-Immersion Therapy, followed by being barred for life from having anything to do with education – much less child education. That would be called “getting off easy” in my book, but you have to show a little mercy – you know – to set an example for the kids.

  2. Where, exactly, in the Constitution is the federal government granted any control over education? It must be right around the word abortion or the phrase “separation of church and state.”

  3. The phrase, “educated by the Soviets” used to be the worst condemnation of an education system.

    Now, it’s “educated by the Americans.”

  6. It was worse than any of us thought. The boys were imagining infinite repeaters that take over the bearer.

  7. The other day, I was driving to the store when I passed a neighbor’s house. Two little boys were obviously playing sniper and “shooting” at my vehicle with their stick guns. I didn’t think to call the cops. I was too busy marvelling at the fact that a couple of kids could have the creativity in this day and age to play such a game when they could have been inside playing Call of Duty on XBox Live.

    What the heck is WRONG with me?!?
