What the hell is this country becoming,we're becoming scared of our own shadow,a mentally handicapped kid(to be politically correct)says he has a gun and everybody freaks.If this(once)great conutry was like it is now back during WWII,we'd all be speaking German or Japanese,it's pathetic.I'm not a bible thumper,but you take God out of schools,the pledge of allegiance,etc...and this what you get.It's only gonna get worse,why are the schools worried about offending muslims by saying a prayer before a football game for the safety of the kids playing we're a Christian country,if the muslims here don't like it,get the hell out!Or saying the pledge like we did back in my day?

I know I went off the subject of the article,but the point I was trying to make is the schools and the stupid government took God out of everything for fear of offending people(muslims/atheists),well you know what,they're in the minority,and screw both of them.GOD bless America,In GOD we trust,and I'm sure I'll get all kinds of comments about this,that's fine,but if you talk sh*t and don't keep it civil,be man enough and leave me your # and we can talk in person!
