T-shirt

T-shirts with political slogans — from anti-Bush to anti-gay — are the hot new style on school campuses, says Newsweek. Claiming the messages are disruptive, administrators keep trying to suppress shirt speech.

    Well then, do us all a favor and:

    1) Do not accept corporate property tax dollars to fund public schools. In most areas, it is the corporate property taxes that wind up financing a substantial portion of the education bill.

    2) Do not accept corporate grants-in-kind. I suppose that when IBM or Dell or HP or whomever makes a substantial donation of equipment or money to fund a special program, that also ranks as corporate grabage.

    3) Do not expect parents who work for corporations to volunteer their time and/or effort to making the public schools better. Why take corporate largesse of parent’s time off to chaperone a field trip when it is financed by “corporate garbage”?

    4) Why even ask parents to pay for public education? Most of the ones who work for corporations are able to pay their taxes precisely because of corporations.

    I would sincerely suggest you rethink your assessment of what is “corporate garbage”. What you spew is simply non-thinking liberal crap.

  3. Seems to me that the kids have the right idea here. As long as the hirt itself is not obscene, libelous, or a source of serious disruption, I’ve got no problem with a political shirt.

    And the one anti-Bush kid has it exactly right in the closing quote.
