    Teen Punished for Stopping a Knife-Wielding Bully From Attacking a Student

    Briar MacLean made a split-second decision at school last week.
    Sitting in class in Calgary, he heard some students start to bully another student. Briar told Canada’sNational Post that he saw one boy put another boy in a headlock. Then Briar, who attends Sir John A. Macdonald Junior High School, heard the flick of a knife.
    He wasn’t trying to play a hero when he pushed the knife-wielding bully away from his classmate. But school officials accused him of exactly that. His mother, Leah O’Donnell, said that the school’s vice-principal told her that the school doesn’t “condone heroics” and a teacher should always be called in such situations.
    Briar was reprimanded for helping out his fellow student. The bully was suspended and the police were called.
    Some bullying experts say that the school should be commending—not punishing—Briar for his actions.

    It's not only there, it's here. Schools are doing their best to create sheep. People that will follow blindly and not think for themselves. This is at all levels of education, K- college.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)


    The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant,
    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.
    President Ronald Reagan

    Well, it was in Canada.....
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
