Your King and I will review the coffles of crackers
on their way to the DeathPanels.
Some, we will graciously allow to live ... and be audited, forever."

Just filled my coffle cup just now...
Nothing like a fresh cup to get you going in the morning.

I might have my screen resolution set too small for my eye-age.

not that we all need to be of like minds and in a coffle, i was surprised to see some classmates ragging on this school for wanting it's dress code enforced. Private schools have the ability to dictate the appearance of their students. This girl, being raised by her grandparents, apparently had problems conforming to the dress code, was warned that she might not be permitted to re-enroll in the following year, and so the family withdrew her from the private Christian school and... ran to the media? my feeling about this is very much the same as those who disagree with some of the Church's rules and instead of going somewhere else where they DO agree, they attempt to change the rules to fit what THEY want them to be. there are some religious sects who do believe that women should not cut their hair, and apparently there is a biblical basis for it. it's their perogative to require that of their students. my kids went through private schools exclusively and i have no problem with what the school did. xsboy's HS did not permit them to wear hoodies [bc it was associated with thuggish behavior? i am not sure] xsbaby's HS had a length requirement for the skirts, no clothes with holes, etc. and they had Commonwealth Academy sweatshirts and sweatpants at the ready, for those in violation. If they were repeat offenders they may have gotten tossed, i don't know.

I saw this ad on TV yesterday for cotton (clothing) featuring Hayden Pantierre. (Who is apparently affianced now.)

The hashtag given is #InsideHaydensCloset.

I’m all like “Not since the restraining order.” ;-)

Most inadvertent followers of the father of lies have this inherent desire, when they encounter a rule contrary to what their father desires, to break it down instead of going somewhere else where such rules don’t exist.

This is apparent in most issues the left raises.

There was a time in America when authority figures such as school principals said, “Here are the rules,” and those striving to be good citizens happily complied. That all started to change in the 1960s, with Dr. Spock’s book on bringing up children being an early culprit. Now the people who cut classes, smoked pot under the bleachers and didn’t hand in homework (unless they copied it) are running the country.

We also need an A.G. who will coffle the current A.G. Much of the lawlessness leads back to Holder, starting with his non-prosecution of the New Black Panthers who were intimidating white voters in Philadelphia. Holder’s argument that “Black people have endured worse in the past” would get a sustained objection of “irrelevant” in any fair court in the land.

Back in the days when I was actively practicing law, I used to pass the Sheriff’s Entrance on my way into the Court House, observing a coffle of shackled prisoners doing what we referred to as the “Marlboro Shuffle.” Under the Obama Regime, it is the true Patriots who are shackled.

One statement declared that she was following the dress code. (Is there a dress code for hair length?) I can say that after watching the video, I clearly could not tell her gender. That does not translate to gender confusion, though. More complicated than that. School uniforms would settle a lot of this hot mess. So does pulling her out of the school. The grandparents, IMHO, have no basis for a lawsuit. Not enough info to really make a clear judgement, and thankfully, I don’t need to.

there can be a dresscode for hair length. there certainly was for boy’s hair length when xsboy was in middle school, and he was told more than once to get it cut and off we went to do so. if the school felt there was a biblical basis in requiring longer hair on girls, then yeah it would be in the dress code.
and really, since when do we allow our 8 yo’s to decide what they are going to wear and how long to keep their hair? you tell them that if you want to go to this school this is what you wear and this is how you do your hair. period.

There is also a story going around about a girl who shaved her head in solidarity with a friend with cancer and now she is in trouble with her school’s policies.

They’re going to have a special meeting of the school board to see if they can make an exception.

I saw an interview with Hayden and she said her parents had a strict curfew for her until she turned 18. She didn’t turn out like Lindsay Lohan because her parents remained PARENTS and made sure she was safe and not doing something stupid, despite her money. (They also mentioned the restraining order to keep old farts like you away..... ;^)
