2007 - Mary is accused of being a sexual predator and loses her job. She faces 3 years in State Prison. Johnny undergoes 5 years of therapy.

This should hit every e-mail to show how stupid we have become!

And if we do not wake up and take our country back - WE will not have a country , nor a society to grow old in or for our children to grow up in (On a side note, the person who wrote this must have failed English class but still graduated)

Think about it!

1957? heck in 1989 I got paddled by my gym teacher for snapping my buddy with a towel in the locker room. I never did that again. My 7th grade math teacher took 1 kid a week down to the principals office and paddled them. He had taught for 30+ years and had every kid that got paddled sign it. It was completely black with ink.
Now he would get fired for hacing it in his desk.
He used to throw blackboard erasers at ya if you fell asleep in class. He was a great teacher.

So that's why I always woke up in class with white dust on me.

Sad but true...Teachers can barely even yell at you anymore, if they tell someone to go to the principals office, and they refuse...you can't drag them by the ear, they call the principal to them, it still doesn't work, sometimes they have to call the police,just because you can't lay a hand on them...its sad..If I was the teacher, I would put a boot upside their head

I have one to add to this list:

December 1994- I brought a grenade to school (one of those authentic ones from the Army Surplus store where the bottom is drilled out) and brought it into my Spanish class. I wore a large bomber jacket and was acting crazy while the other students were telling the teacher that I'd been saying bad things about her. She was just standing there laughing, then I ran up to the desk, put the grenade on there, pulled the pin, and yelled "You're all gonna die!" then dove into the hallway. All but 2 students followed, they were no fun Final period of the day I was called into the Asst. Principal's office. He happened to be my neighbor growing up, my golf coach, his son was my best friend, and he was an Army Reservist who fought in the Gulf War. He didn't think it was very funny. He was so upset, he didn't want to make a decision, so I went on Xmas break expecting to be expelled and placed into a military school.
January 1995- I received 2-day in school suspension. The room in which I was placed had a bed and a lock on the door where only the principal and asst. principal had a key. I slept most of the day. Small towns are great!

On a side note, my mother went in and talked with the asst. principal during the Xmas break. He told her it was one of the funnier jokes he'd ever seen, but they needed me on the golf team, he knew I wasn't a bad kid, but had to discipline me somehow.
I never got in trouble at school again


2007 - I'm a terrorist and sent to Guantanamo Bay to be interrogated through waterboarding and starvation.

I can relate to the number 1 in the list. It was 4th grade for me . I had Been Rabbit hunting with my Dad , Uncle , Brother and Cousins the weekend before and we were having our Christmas program that day before we got out for Christmas Vacation. Our caffeteria was fairly cold and drafty and when i put my coat on i noticed i had 2 pockets full of 410 shotgun shells. I went up to my teacher before the program started and told him i had all these shotgun shells and what should i do with them , after telling me anybody that comes back with that many shells must not be a very good rabbit hunter LOL, he tells me to give them to my mom when she shows up before the program. His name was Mr Tipsword and he was AWSOME. Ive had some great teachers , in high school our shop teacher was pissed because it was 100 degrees out and they were still holding class , the school is not air conditioned ,all except for the staff office . He told us anybody who would be so brave as to squirt a few bottles of Doe In Heat in the air conditioners would automatically pass the next test. He would also tell us that he better not catch anybody spittin thier chew spit int he welding tank , AS HE SPIT HIS CHEW SPIT IN THE WELDING TANK lol.

I don't want a teacher laying a hand on my kid. That's my job if a teacher hit my child I'd freaking arm bar him.

I don't care what he did. Tell me and I'll handle it.
