The Daily Pointless...

California Students Sent Home for Wearing U.S. Flags on Cinco de Mayo

"The five students -- ... -- were then told they must turn their T-shirts inside-out or be sent home, though it would not be considered a suspension. Rodriguez [the assistant principal] told the students he did not want any fights to break out between Mexican-American students celebrating their heritage and those wearing American flags."

"More than 100 students were spotted wearing the colors of the Mexican flag -- red, white and green -- as they left school, including some who had the flag painted on their faces or arms"

"Freshman Laura Ponce, who had a Mexican flag painted on her face and chest, told the Morgan Hill Times that Cinco de Mayo is the "only day" Mexican-American students can show their national pride."

National pride huh? How is it national pride to celebrate the holiday of a foreign country's independance after you have CHOSEN to leave that country and move to the U.S.A.? Once you CHOOSE to move to the U.S.A., whether legally or not, you are no longer of that nationallity. You are not Polish, Russian, Italian, French, or whatever. You have chosen to become U.S. American. You are still obviously a specific race or ethnicity (i.e. Hispanic or Black etc.). I mean, think about why- why would you be "proud" to celibrate that you were born in some shithole?

No offense intended- but you obviously came to the USA cause it's better than what you left. Otherwise, why did you come? Are you just dumb or something?

The MuthaFuggin Saga Continues...

So a month or so ago the keeper-of-the-testes (aka spouse) shows me a brochure for some interesting looking classes/lectures. I say good, let's sign up. Ok, she says, she'll take care of it.

Ah, you see it coming?

Yeah, of course she didn't sign up. Now, they want a lot more money at the door since we missed the "pre-registration". So, she says, since she got the babysitter set up, why don't we just go out for ice cream or something. OK, says I.

Ah, you see it coming?

I get home from work and ask "What time is the babysitter due"?

Ah, you see it coming?

Oh, I never confirmed with her she says.

Well, can you call and ask, or do you actually know for certain she's not coming. "She would have been here by now" she says. Do you want me to call her now and see if she's available for an hour? No, don't go through all that trouble I says. So she says "ok, I'm going to BJ's to get some frozen chicken".

Then I realize one of my kids is missing... he went to ride his bike around the block and never came back around. Twenty minutes later we find him around the corner in someones back yard (some people we never met before) playing on a trampoline.

So not only do I not get the interesting class, but no ice cream. And worry about a kid for 20 minutes. And she goes to get frozen chicken.

Hmmm... seems like I married a frozen chicken.
