That's just fine. Please let us know an office phone number where these administrators may be reached, and if you can, please alert the FBI or Secret Service to this ridiculousness.

If the whole darned audience doesn't get up and walk out, well I don't know what to say. I wish I could go, just so I could leave. Colorado's a little far from me, though.

Sadly, there is no source for this information. It was 'reported by a parent' is as close as we get.

Personally, I'll like some corroboration of a story like this before blowing my stack over it.

Radio personalities are not necessarily accurate. This may be a hoax.

Nov 5, 2004 12:16 pm US/Mountain
BOULDER, Colo. (News 4) At least 85 students worried about war, a return of the draft and the future of the environment staged an overnight protest in the Boulder High School library before leaving peacefully Friday morning.

The students said they wanted assurances from political leaders about the direction of the country. Rep. Mark Udall, D-Colo., met with some of the students for about an hour after they left the library at 7 a.m.

"We're worried that in four years we're going to be at war with five countries and we're going to have no trees," senior Cameron Ely-Murdock said.

"I know that's an extreme position, but I'm really worried about the draft," he said.

President Bush and other administration officials have repeatedly said they have no plans to reinstate a draft, despite concerns about the number of troops needed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Principal Ron Cabrera agreed to let the students spend the night in the library if they would leave in time for Friday morning classes, which they did. A handful of teachers and parents stayed with them.

"It's become a really large learning event about civics and having a political voice. And you can't beat that," Cabrera said.

The sit-in began after school Thursday. The students, who brought sleeping bags and food, said they were not protesting Bush's re-election but were worried about the national debt, Iraq and other issues.

The students said they wanted to talk to representatives of GOP Gov. Bill Owens and U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, R-Colo. Musgrave sponsored the failed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

It was not immediately known whether either received a request or responded.

I work at an elementary school in Colorado, one day I was walking through the building engineers office and I was greeted with a posting on his bulletin board that depicted President Bush and Cheney with a bullseye on them. This from a school that will not tolerate a child saying Bang Bang at recess...what a bunch of hypocrites.

What's your confidence level in this story? These two are apparently more humorists than news guys. Before we all fly off the handle here, maybe this story should be checked out.

I can't find anything about it on any of the news outlets in that region.

I'm sorry, but a couple of drive-time jocks aren't my idea of a valid news source, especially since they give "a parent" as their only source.

Caution, I think, is in order here.

Of course, there is the possibility that their act is a parody of Bin Laden wishing Bush were dead - they actually could be making fun of the Taliban and Bin Laden rather than wishing Bush were dead themselves. Just a thought.

That would be Mr. Vacca, who also championed the student slumber party questioning the "direction of the country" after the election.

I have a friend who lives in Boulder and whose husband is in Iraq with the Army's 1st ID. She has one of those "Support Our Troops" yellow ribbons on her car. She said she gets the bird from people all the time. I don't get it. What's wrong with these people?

Perhaps. But this is in Boulder, where teachers helped students stage an anti-Bush sit-in.

Quit your whimpering kid.

Since this is the high screwl where the kiddies staged the sit-in (see post #7), I'm guessing you're right.

Already called the school. The principle stated that there will be no such song on Friday night but that a "protest song" written bt Bob Dylan will be performed. I told him that the word is out and that it may be a long day for him.

"Already called the school."

Good for you. Sounds like this is a non-story, as I suspected. I doubt any such song was ever planned. Makes for a good drive-time story, though, generating lots of talk and controversy.

Best move is to check stories before posting, especially when the source is not the news.

If further communication occurs, or a press release is made, I hope they will note WHICH Dylan song.

Ypu did good, welcome to FR

I heard this parent and her daughter this am on the Peter Boyle talk show. His students are the ones who staged their "sit in" last week to protest Bush. This marxist teacher put them up to the way I see it.

I agree, thanks for the suggestion. When I heard the story I was really upset. The mother called back in and stands by her story. The school says the band's name is "Coalition of the Willing" and the song is "Masters of War" by Bob Dylan.

It's all over the radio out here (Front Range, Colorado). It's causing a little bit of a sh*tstorm. They've been interviewing people about it on KHOW and tried to get one of the teachers on but he wouldn't talk to them. The people in the education system in Boulder do some stupid crap. They're always getting in the news.

"...is wrong with these people!?"

There are a lot of whackos in the People's Californicated Republic of Boulderstan.

In 1999 I drove through with a couple of my kids and stopped to show them my old alma matersky.

Even though my kids clearly have Asian ancestry, and so we should have had enough "diversity" points to be accepted, I seemed to be radiating C-rays so strongly that people on campus were uniformly hostile.

The atmosphere was so thick it made my kids uncomfortable.

I do still get my hair cut at base barbershops, so maybe I was radiating M-rays together with C-rays, both of which are kryptonite to Boulderistas.

Even 28 years ago, the Veterans Club free kegger on Fridays (FAC) was like a leper colony.

Well, that's way different from what was reported in your first post. It's not the "Taliband" and they're not doing a song advocating Bush's death, are they?

That's what I meant. The story you posted originally was not true. The truth is that an anti-war song is being sung. That's way different.

I've got KHOW on in the background here. What bothers me, here, is that the original story was WAY different from what's being said now.

Yes, these kids and teachers are stupid, but this is not what was reported in the original post.

No, the mother and daughter both reported the na as Taliband and the lyrics of a song written by Baca the was performed at the school during tryouts for the talent show. The daghter was there during tryouts. I am not suprised that the school denies it and tells a different story. It is Boulder, after all.
