Putting the xeno back in phobia, or, we don’t need no education..

The state of Colorado recently passed a law outlawing the display of foreign flags on public buildings and adjacent property, which kind of makes sense if you are talking about the state house (we don’t wanna confuse the illegal immigrants).

One ridiculous consequence of this law is that a middle-school teacher was suspended for displaying foreign flags in his classroom. It should be noted that the teacher is a FREAKIN’ GEOGRAPHY teacher. Is there no common sense left? I expect this kind of thing from the Phil Valentines of the world, but puhleeeze..

Maybe they should make spoken English mandatory in their Spanish classes….

And, as an aside, Colorado, your state flag is ugly. It looks more like the logo on a hockey uniform for the Canadiens.


Just trying to help…

  1. i agree completely. legislators ought to save their energy for important things, like putting god back into the classroom where He belongs.

  2. Haha, I saw this story and just shook my head. What can you say?
