    What happens when mindless zero-tolerance policies are pitted against support-the-troops patriotism? At Dexter McCarty Middle School in Gresham, Oregon, zero tolerance wins. The Washington Post reports that the school recently suspended eighth-grader Alan Holmes, whose brother served with the Marines in Iraq, for wearing a T-shirt that says "Standing for Those Who Stood for Us" against the backdrop of an American flag. The problem: Fallen soldiers are represented by an empty pair of boots, one of them with a rifle capped by a helmet protruding from it. The shirt, part of the Jeff Foxworthy line of "Vintage Redneck Wear," violated...

    Eighth-grader Alan Holmes’ T-shirt imagery of a rifle, helmet and boots denoting loss may have symbolized patriotism to him, but not to administrators at Dexter McCarty Middle School in Gresham who demanded the boy change his shirt and then suspended him when he refused. “I’m not changing into a Dexter shirt,” the 13-year-old told Fox 12. “They won’t let me wear a shirt that supports the people that keep us free, I’m not going to support them.”

    A Texas high school student was punished with in-school suspension last Monday after a teacher discovered he was wearing an American flag T-shirt, FOX 4 reported. The student, a junior whose name is Jaegur, was wearing the shirt -- which featured an American flag design with an eagle in the foreground -- at Seagoville High School in Dallas when an administrator determined the shirt violated the school dress code. Jaegur’s mom, Shelly Goode, fears the suspension will show up as a permanent mark on his record, ruining any chance her son can earn a scholarship through the ROTC program. “He...

    Students at Bangor Area High School in Pennsylvania were encouraged by the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance to wear rainbow-colored T-shirts on Friday of last week in support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender issues. Instead, two students wore Chick-fil-A T-shirts. Suspensions followed on Monday. But those who were suspended may surprise you: [The school] suspended a group of students for using Twitter during school hours to call out two students wearing Chick-fil-A shirts during a Gay-Straight Alliance event, parents and students said. The suspended students felt the T-shirts were offensive because of widely publicized comments the fast food company’s president and...

    A California school dispute that arose when students wore shirts emblazoned with the American flag on Cinco de Mayo could prompt the Supreme Court to take a new look at free-speech rules for high schools. Ever since students protested the Vietnam War by wearing black armbands, the justices have said the 1st Amendment protects the rights of students to peacefully protest at school, so long as their actions do not lead to a "substantial disruption." In recent years, however, some school officials have moved to curtail political fashion statements such as wearing T-shirts with Confederate flags or anti-gay slogans. They...

Mike Amoroso’s shirt read, “Abortion Kills a Person,” and the employee told him that if he did not change into something else, Mike would have to leave the premises. He went home. But, undeterred, Mike returned the next day wearing a shirt that he thought would be more palatable than the first. It simply read, “Pray to End Abortion.” Watch 70-year-old Mike Amoroso’s story below: Ironically, Planet Fitness...

He and just a few of his friends wore the shirts at the school where there are more than 2,000 students. For some there, today was a day of silence. It's part of a national movement that only about 40 kids at Oregon City High...

    SAMANTHA PAWLUCY, the Port Richmond teen embroiled in a high school controversy over her T-shirt choice, will no longer attend Charles Carroll High School, her attorney and her father confirmed Wednesday. "She's totally uncomfortable. She doesn't want to go back there," said Richard Pawlucy, the student's father. He and his wife, Kristine, also pulled their two other daughters from the school. Samantha wore a pink Romney/Ryan T-shirt to Carroll High on "Dress Down Day" nearly two weeks ago. Her geometry teacher, Lynette Gaymon, asked her to leave the class and wondered why she was wearing a Republican top at a...

    Teacher in T-shirt case reads letter at assembly Within hours of Samantha Pawlucy's return to Charles Carroll High School, the teacher she said publicly humiliated her over a Romney T-shirt returned as well, reading from a letter at a brief assembly. Lynette Gaymon, Pawlucy's former geometry teacher, visited the school Tuesday morning, the district's spokesperson confirmed. The teacher read from a letter she wrote, originally distributed to teachers with the intention of having it read aloud to students, a person attending the assembly said. Instead, the teacher came to the Port Richmond school to personally address students. "What I meant...

    Last Friday was dress-down day at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond — a day for students to leave their uniforms at home and wear whatever they liked. One young woman chose to wear a shirt showing her support for Gov. Mitt Romney’s presidential candidacy. Her geometry teacher didn’t like it, the girl’s father said on a radio call-in show on IQ 106.9 FM today. The teacher allegedly told the girl to take off the shirt, saying it was like wearing a Ku Klux Klan sheet. The teacher allegedly threatened to use a marker to cross out Romney’s name...

    Ross Murty likes business, but he doesn't like President Obama. And so the co-owner of the Village Corner Deli here agreed to cater Obama's visit Wednesday — but not before donning a T-shirt blaring the message: "Government didn't build my business. I did." It was a reference to a remark Obama made several weeks ago that his Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, has seized upon to portray Obama as anti-business. Obama, referring to the help government provides to businesses by building roads and providing education and other services, said, "If you've got a business — you didn't build that." "No one...

    One of the leading online election related merchants is Café Press. They sell Tee shirts and anything else with candidates’ names on it.. Café Press has no political bent; they are just merchants selling what people want. If people like what they are selling they will make more of that product. If people show little interest in a particular product they make fewer of that item and move on to offer what they see will sell. “….Café Press’ (CP) latest sales figures for pro Barack Obama items are significant. When CP compared its Obama items sales figures this past week...

    The union that represents Twin Rivers School District Police Officers is apologizing tonight for putting something on a T-shirt that puts the department in a bad light. The shirt shows a terrified child, behind bars, and bears the caption : “U Raise ‘em, We Cage ‘em. [sic]” Mean-spirited at best, and at worst, well... the ramifications are unsettling. The T-shirt, put out by the Twin Rivers Police Officer's Association, has been rejected by even those who made it. "We agree that it wasn't sending the right message, and it certainly doesn't represent the views and opinions of the men...
