Teaching 'Em Young

A boy was suspended for wearing an anti-Obama shirt. He was only 11 years old.

"An 11-year-old Colorado boy was suspended from school after showing up for class in a T-shirt bearing the handwritten motto 'Obama a terrorist's best friend.'

"Daxx Dalton's dad says the fifth-grader was given the choice of changing his shirt, turning it inside out or being suspended -- and he chose suspension, according to a Fox News affiliate in Colorado.

"Daxx maintains his First Amendment right to free expression was violated, and his dad said he intends to sue. The school district said it respects the right to free speech, but has the responsibility to intervene in any situation that disrupts the learning environment."

Well, I applaud the kid for knowing his rights and choosing to express himself in line with those rights. I am truly impressed that he chose to be suspended instead of taking the shirt off. His daddy must have taught him right--and early. You have to stand up for what you believe in. Even if you are wrong, which I'm not saying he is, you have to do what you think is right. Good for him.
