    Nova, stay away from military related threads, they are read only for you.
    Every time you get into one it seams to cause trouble.
    I mean it.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    We have like two rules here and you find them and see if you can make a game out of seeing how close you can come to breaking them.
    Honestly it never occurred to me that anyone would take it that way. I am not a complicated or devious person. I have no reason to be coy with you people, I don't know a single one of you in real life. I say what I mean, and I am often quite emotionally detached. Since I arrived here, you have assumed that I was a masked man from DU who would one day reveal himself, and despite everything I have candidly told you about my family, my life, and my positions you still LOOK FOR opportunities to take something out of context or completely misread something and start on the warpath.

    In case you haven't noticed, I have posted in the Veterans forum about twice, and once I removed it when I realized I was in the Vets forum. I don't expect to be a part of that, and since I don't share the emotional attachment there, then I stay out . But out here in General Discussion, I have always operated on the belief that these topics are for the discussion of issues in the general public. Sometimes those are military issues. Part of our unique design for this country is civilian control of the military, civilians are not without opinion are they? And yet, you seem to think that the only opinion I am entitled to on any issue remotely related to the military is agreement. Moreover, when I disagree with a policy, you convolute that to mean hatred for the military in general and the veterans here in particular even though some of them have said that they never took what I said the way you portrayed it.

    So what is the real deal here? Are you really convinced that one day I am going to "show my colors" or are you simply amusing yourself at deciding if any given day is Kick Nova Day?

    I am not negotiating with you, read my last post above and get the chip of your shoulder.

    This will piss off a few people here, but I'm backing Nova on this one.

    I did not read it as an insult to the military or to the students. I read it as an example of what could be next in the PC world schools and students now live in.

    Common sense does not play into the educational system anymore. If it did, 6 yer old kids would not be getting thrown out of school for pointing a finger and going "bang" or drawing a picture of a gun (which not only gets you tossed, but sent for psych evaluation).

    I think too many people like to read too much into what some posters put up and just look for a reason to be offended depending on the author.

    Not sure what the problem is.

    School policy is no sashes.
    These two show up wearing sashes.
    School tells them to take them off or don't walk down the aisle.
    They decide to not walk down the aisle.

    Isn't this what conservatives do? We follow the rules. We just don't show up and behave like DUmmy anarchists because it's something we feel like doing.

    Maybe these boys actions will lead to a change in school policy and that would be a good thing. But to fault the school for the actions they took at this graduation is just wrong. They should have been yanked. And they were. Kudos to the school for standing that line.

    There was no problem with Nova agreeing with the school , the problem comes from him comparing the sashes to swastikas. I was told next mistake he was gone, I didn't do that and told him to stay away from military threads because there is always trouble when he get's involved in them.
    How Nova is dealt with is no one Else's business and is between Nova and admin.
