Can The American Flag Be A Threat? Yes, Say Judges

"A Northern California high school's decision to order students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during a celebration of the holiday Cinco de Mayo was appropriate, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the school officials' concerns of racial violence outweighed students' freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between white and Latino students on that day.

The unanimous three-judge panel said past problems gave school officials sufficient and justifiable reasons for their actions. The court said schools have wide latitude in curbing certain civil rights to ensure campus safety."* Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) break it down.

Our Notes:  First, the language in this broadcast is well beyond belief.  The arguments are interesting, however, fail to point out that we are in the United States.  If anyone is offended by this flag, then please, by all means, move out of this country and go somewhere else.  Anyone wearing any other flag such as the flag of the UK, Ireland, Germany, Japan, China or any other country was probably okay?  We understand the safety issues.  In the US, no other flag is raised before the US flag, period.  None.  The war for your mind rages on.

"The legislative battle that pits Ohio car dealers against Tesla Motors and its company-owned stores continues.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the car dealers are once again pushing legislation that would keep Tesla from selling cars in the Buckeye State.

Senate Bill 260 would explicitly prohibit the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) from issuing car-dealer licenses to auto manufacturers.

Section 11 of the bill lists "a manufacturer... applying for license to sell or lease new motor vehicles at retail" as one of the types of organization ineligible for a dealership license.

This comes after car dealers sued to block Tesla from selling cars in Ohio."* John Iadarola, Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?!, and TYT Sports) and Cara Santa Maria (co-host and producer, TakePart Live) break it down on The Young Turks.

Our Notes:  What?  Democrats don't do the same thing?  Yeah they do.  It's not party politics, it's just the way that the Constitution has been scraped down to nothing more than a piece of paper.  Throw all of the politicians out.  Who cares whether or not they are republicans or democrats.  They all need to go.

"A Chicago woman has sued the village of Skokie and one of its police officers, alleging she was seriously injured after being shoved headfirst into a jail cell bench after a drunken driving arrest last winter.

Cassandra Feuerstein, 47, said in a federal lawsuit that the incident required facial reconstructive surgery and the insertion of a titanium plate to "replace the bones that had been shattered."".* Cenk Uygur, Eboni K Williams, Ben Mankiewicz and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) break it down on The Young Turks.

(Our Notes:)  Welcome to the Nazi USSA?  Come on now.  And this cop still has a job too?  Again, people, at what point to we say enough is enough!
