Student Banned from Displaying American Flag on Veterans’ Day Gets Help from Liberty Counsel

http://www.LC.org

Denair, CA – Today Liberty Counsel sent a letter to school officials demanding that a middle school student be allowed to return an American flag to the back of his bicycle. Cody Alicea, a 13-year-old, proudly flies the American flag on the back of his bike. He does this to honor veterans, namely his grandfather, who served our country. On Veterans’ day this week, school officials at the Denair Middle School prohibited Alicea from bringing his bike onto school grounds as long as it had an American flag. He was told that others had complained about the flag and were offended by it. Under protest, he now is removing the flag and storing it in his backpack while at school.

Superintendent Parraz expressed fear that students might bring flags of the United States and Mexico to school, and he attempts to justifying this decision as a way to avoid tension in the district. However, the district schools fly the American flag on flagpoles outside of their buildings and inside classrooms throughout the district. Parraz even claims the decision is consistent with the U.S. Constitution.

This decision violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. In Tinker v. Des Moines Ind. Sch. Dist., the Supreme Court protected the free speech rights of students on public school campuses. This potential for offense cannot provide justification for banning Cody from displaying the American flag in support of his country and its war veterans. Students have the right to wear printed words or symbols on their clothing and display them on their vehicles while on school property. Students=expression in this manner may only be limited if it materially and substantially interferes with or materially disrupts the ordinary operation of the school, not because the symbols or messages offend administrators or fellow students.

Mathew D. Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, commented: “Liberty Counsel calls on school officials at Denair Middle School to rescind their nonsensical policy and to allow Cody Alicea to fly the American flag. The flag should be in every classroom. It is absurd to ban students from displaying the flag, especially on Veterans’ Day.”

Nanny Hero – Rescues boy from fire

Posted in Hero with tags , , , , , , , , on March 26, 2010 by saynsumthn

A 22-year-old Ky. nanny is being hailed as a hero after risking her life to pull a 5-year-old boy from a burning home. Whit Johnson reports.

Alyson Myatt said her own safety never crossed her mind.

After waking to a loud boom and realizing smoke detectors were going off in the Shelbyville home where she worked as a nanny early Tuesday morning, all she knew was she had to get to the 5-year-old boy she cared for.

And she did, after walking barefoot through a flaming hallway and carrying the boy to safety from the house on Goldenrod Court. “I didn’t even think about me getting burned,” Myatt said. “I care for the kid a lot. I really do.”

She was new on the job — she’d only been working there two months, reports CBS News Correspondent Whit Johnson.

Speaking from a bed in University Hospital’s burn unit Wednesday evening, Myatt, 22, said she had been working as a live-in nanny for the family only two months.

Both her feet and her right hand were heavily bandaged after suffering severe burns, and she said it was too early to guess how long her hospital stay might be or what her recovery might entail.

Still, looking back, Myatt said she felt lucky. “I feel very blessed, it could have been a lot worse,” she said.

The boy’s father, J.B. Hawes, who was out of town, rushed back to Louisville.

“We went to the hospital from the airport, to see Ali,” he told CBS affiliate WLKY-TV, choking back tears. “When someone sacrifices, takes a chance with their life, for your son, it’s pretty amazing.

“He had about a minute to live. Most people wouldn’t have done what she did. I’ll owe her a debt for the rest of her life, because there’s no way to ever repay something like that.”

Myatt said she’s spoken to the boy on the phone long enough for him to tell her that he misses and loves her.

She downplays any heroics that others attribute to her. “I just did what I would hope every human being would do,” Myatt said.

But Shelbyville Fire & Rescue Chief Willard Tucker disagrees.

“She did it and I bet a lot of people wouldn’t,” he said.

He added that in his 20-plus years as a firefighter, the courage Myatt showed stands out.

“To physically run through flames is heroics to the nth degree,” Tucker said. “To make a choice to charge right through flames is kind of above what are normal heroics.”

After waking up around 6 a.m. Tuesday, Myatt raced from the basement bedroom, where she slept, to the main floor of the house to check on the boy.

She found a hallway bathroom engulfed in flames, and the fire had spread across the hallway carpet leading to the boy’s bedroom.

She called his name and the boy answered, shouting that he was in the room hiding under the covers.

Myatt ran barefoot across the flames into the room and snatched up the screaming boy.

Though she didn’t feel any pain, she said, something felt wrong, like she was “walking on goo.”

“It was all the skin, my feet were just burned off,” Myatt said through tears.

Myatt carried the boy back through the burning hallway and took him outside, where she jumped into a van and drove them both to a neighbor’s house, telling the boy on the way that he would have to run to the home and ring the door bell until someone answered.

A neighbor came to the door, called the fire department and drove Myatt to a Shelbyville hospital.

When Shelbyville Fire & Rescue arrived on scene minutes later, the attic of the home and entire front bedroom where the boy slept were engulfed in flames, said Tucker.

If the boy had still been inside, it would have been too late, Tucker said.

Tucker said the fire started in a ventilation fan in a hallway bathroom that Myatt said had been smoking three hours earlier when she first heard smoke alarms.

At that time, Myatt went to see what was going on and said she threw water on the smoking fan, which seemed to put out any fire.

Carter calls Obama “Black Boy”

Posted in Obama, Racism with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2009 by saynsumthn

In 2008, President Jimmy Carter referred to Obama, as “Black Boy!” . Isn’t the term “boy” when referring to an African American considered racist? Then i 2009, Carter says that opposition to President Obama is Racist, because people especially from the South think Blacks are “not qualified.” But, before Obama was the Democrats nominee, Carter stated that Obama, “doesn’t yet have proven substance or experience to be the President.” – TRANSLATION – HE IS NOT QUALIFIED !

JIM LEHRER: And do you think that — if it happens that he is elected, or even just being nominated, is — will send positive ripple effects throughout the country on the race issue?

JIMMY CARTER: Around the world. Around the world. And I think it already has sent a wave of approbation and admiration in many countries around the world, just knowing that this black boy who grew up with just a loving mother and grandparents — and that was about all he had to start with — does now have a chance to become the nominee of the Democratic Party for president.
