Picking on kids

I read a jaw dropping stories on the news every day. Here's one of many:

Cupcakes With Army Soldiers Get Kid In Hot Water At School

CARO (CBS Detroit) A 9-year-old boy’s birthday cupcakes sparked a school controversy that just keeps growing, with scores of people lining up against a school principal who found the cupcake’s topping “inappropriate.”

The boy was chided, and so were his parents, for cupcakes featuring little green Army men on the top.

Schall Elementary School principal Susan Wright called the parents at home and said the cupcakes were insensitive in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting. School staff pulled off the Army men before they were served.


Martial arts instructor Josh Brown, who teaches both the father and son through his school at Caro Martial Arts, is one of the outraged local residents.

“He’s a little 9-year-old kid and it was his birthday cupcakes,” Brown said. “These guys (soldiers) are heroes, and too many people are confusing them with psychopaths.”

There is so much absurd crap going on that every day brings story after story of idiocy -- and idiocracy.

I hate to think about how kids are growing up these days!

Send the Principal to the wood shed.

Retarded people are running things AOW. Stories like this everyday.
Here's another. Kid was going to shoot another kid at school. Another (3rd kid) subdued the shooter saving the life of the 1st kid. All three are expelled.
