Peyton Robinson, a senior at York Comprehensive High School in South Carolina, was flying an American flag and a POW-MIA flag on the back of his truck – until the school took them off his truck
*** and ***
The community has rallied around Robinson and his flags and staged a demonstation. As many as 70 cars full of students and adults arrived at the school with people waving flags along the street.
*** and ***
Under overwhelming public outcry, the school gave in. An announcement on the school district says:
Due to the outstanding display of patriotism through peaceful demonstration, it is apparent to us that many are not happy about this policy. School officials have reviewed the standing policy regarding flags and have decided that an exception will be made for the American flag, as long as the size of the flag(s) does not create a driving hazard.

So now the Gooferment Skrules are the traffic police. How do they determine it creates “a driving hazard”? Ask the drivers ed teacher!
Close the Gooferment Skrules. Defund the Department of Education. And, return the education of children to their parents. And, btw, the parents had ‘em, let them pay to educate them.
Bet all those international measures of education for the USA compared to the world get blown off the scales.
There’s a reason that homeschoolers rock!
