In schools. How many of you people here heard about this yet ? This has been going on for the last few months now here in the US. Some school districts have banned children from wearing Halloween costumes during normal hours. They say it is because it can be a distraction to the learning process. Others say it is sacreligious. Then there are those who say it is offensive to ones personal beliefs, and also to children who cannot afford to buy one in the first place.
Excuses, excuses ! America is losing her edge and it is because of the
Totalitarianism atmosphere that is enslaving the minds of todays youth.
This is ridiculous. Our children should be able to express themselves in a casual manner, without Big Brothers consent. Do you agree ?

When I was coming up back in the 80's and 90's, we wore costumes to school.
This was always a well accepted tradition. It was not a distraction.
I think America has gotten soft. And you.

Kids are suppose to go to learn. They go to fool about in any way they can though.

But agreed. There is no reason to allow halloween custumes in the classroom. If the school wants to have a halloween dance or something, sure, cool, whatever.

I think I know why we have a difference of opinion here: I went to school in England where all the kids wear school uniforms and, in my school, such transgressions as wearing your cap at a jaunty angle, or loosening your tie, or rolling up your shirt sleeves or turning the collar up on your blazer were severely punished.

The idea of wearing a costume to school in England would be almost unthinkable.

Apparel has a lot to do with attitude. To wear uniforms in school is another passive and highly irritating form of Totalitarianism. This of course is very popular in many European schools especially in Communist countries where it is all about conforming.

When I was at school I hated wearing a uniform and thought exactly like you: that it was all about conformity and suppression of personal expression.

Now, I'm older, though, I have changed my mind: I think they look smart and it stops kids who don't have access to the expensive designer clothes being made to feel inferior.

That is a very selective opinion sir. If children took responsibility for their actions, then they would not try to belittle others for not being up to par. However, we should not legislate or dictate what people should wear simply because this is
a personal difference, or difference of opinions.

America is losing her edge and it is because of the Totalitarianism atmosphere that is enslaving the minds of todays youth. This is ridiculous. Our children should be able to express themselves in a casual manner, without Big Brothers consent. Do you agree ?:

The people with the biggest problem over Halloween come from your own sector -- Christians -- not the government.

This has nothing to do with the influence of Christians you scoundrel. This comes from the secularist and Left Wing Propagandists. I am a Liberal, but I do think that this branch of government is too socially involved. They want bureacrats to dictate everything under the sun. This is only the beginning. Youve been warned.
