Gift of toy guns at elementary
school upsets parents

WSMV-TV [Nashville, TN], by Staff

Murfreesboro, TN - Rutherford County school leaders took steps to tighten loopholes in the district´s suspension policy Thursday. The move came two weeks after a student at Barfield Elementary School handed out several toy guns to his classmates. The toys were inside some gift bags the fourth grader gave out to celebrate Eid al-Adha, an Islamic holiday. While the school´s handbook seems to prohibit toy guns, Rutherford County´s policy does not, so the child was not suspended.(Snip) Some parents were outraged that students were allowed to celebrate the holiday in the classroom, while others were angry the child wasn´t suspended.

Comments:
I´m offended, too. Toy handguns to celebrate Eid al-Adha? Where are the bomb belts, the rusty scimitars, the 9-year-old brides?

It seems like toy guns were aptly suited for an islamic holiday.

Also pass out Habibs so the brave men can dress up as women to sneak around.

Beautiful country. IIRC, it´s the Tennessee Walking Horse ´capitol´. Our goobermint, probably in cooperation with some relief agencies, have drop a colony of Somalis smack dab in the middle of them. Culture shock at its finest. And yes, there is a massive new mosque being built there.

Search - filmmaker switches sides and now opposes Tennessee mosque. The people of Murfreesboro didn´t deserve to have their community ´altered´ this way.

I´m puzzled on so many fronts here...

* is this a PUBLIC school? If so, why are they allowing a celebration of anything even remotely religious?

* The school has a rule against toy guys... but the County does not... so that´s the "can´t suspend the kid" loophole? (I´m not convinced his religion didn´t provide the loophole).

* Vicki Twitty´s comment.... "the implications could have been disastrous".
Huh? What?

Now, if the kid had been celebrating Constitution Day, and given them out with 2nd amendment cards, he would have been taken in by Homeland Security.

Speaking of which, saw our first H.S. van on the freeway yesterday.

What about the Separation of Church and State ? Is a mosque not a church when convenient ?

What about the no tolerance policy in public schools ? No aspirin, but toy guns are ok ?

Ohhh. Can´t hurt their feelings, which tops everything else.

Meet Mr Poo: The lumpy, brown anthropomorphised faeces that is the face of Unicef´s latest public health campaign in India. Accompanied by an insanely catchy techno-Bollywood-style anthem, Mr Poo features in a very silly and surreal new video aimed at raising awareness of the health dangers associated with public defecation in India. Though the video is light-hearted; the issue is a serious one. Globally, India has the largest number of people, more than 620 million, still defecating in the open. Only about half the population of the country use toilets. According to the Poo2Loo campaign, which is supported

Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, is being investigated by police after he crashed into a parked car and then drove off without informing the owner. The Labour MP for Morley and Outwood has admitted that he found himself in a “tight spot” and realised that he knocked the Peugeot 306 whilst making a seven point turn in his Ford Mondeo estate, but says he left the scene thinking he had not caused any damage. (Snip) It is the fourth time the Labour frontbencher, who once described his beloved 1.8 litre family car as the most expensive thing he has ever

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge. Although critics called the report a "whitewash," Christie said the firm´s lawyers have reputations to uphold and wouldn´t

Police are investigating three recent attacks in the city they believe are part of the “knockout" game, in which an unsuspecting person is attacked for no reason with the goal of knocking the person out with one punch. The three attacks this month have occurred in the 700 block of Main Street, the area of 87 Millbury St. and on Chatham near Main Street. (Snip) Police said all three male victims were walking alone when they were approached by a male they did not know.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
