Mothers, your sack lunches may not be wanted.

Linda of the blog My 2 Crazy Curls, a Stay-at-Home-Mother who describes herself as a "deaf SAHM mom of 3," retells this hair-raising experience about her little one in an appropriately titled post "Wait..what? WHAT is THIS?!?!" Imagine your surprise if you're the mother of a preschooler and someone tells you that your efforts to feed your own child are not approved by the state? I would guess the conversations with the school's officials might turn awkward.

Two 16-year-old students are up in arms because school officials suspended the pair for wearing Confederate flags as clothing on the grounds of their high school.

The students' reasoning? A classmate wore a rainbow flag to school for the past two weeks in honor of LGBT History Month. School officials at Tahoma High School in Maple Valley, Washington reportedly stated that the boys wore the flags to make an anti-gay statement.

In what is one of the saddest stories we'll ever publish, a nine year old boy was found dead by his parents earlier this year, after an apparent suicide.

It is believed the little boy decided to commit suicide after prolonged bullying for being white by an Asian gang at his school. The child's name is Aaron Dugmore, and he was found in his bedroom by his parents who say that their son had been bullied by the Asian children for months. Aaron's mother, Kelly-Marie Dugmore, 30, and his stepfather, Paul Jones, 43, said that despite several complaints to the school, nothing was done to stop the bullying. They claim that he was tormented by one Asian child with a plastic knife who told him that next time it would be a real one. Another Asian child had told him once that "all white people should die." Aaron would spend his entire recess periods hiding from the bullies on the school's playground.

I was listening to Attorney Joe DiGenova this morning on WMAL and he pointed out how the DOJ had recently sent a letter to universities telling them they could ignore the June ruling by the Supreme Court on using race in admissions.

The Supreme Court, in a nearly unanimous ruling, said that universities could use race in admissions but not as a dominant factor. But in this letter the DOJ is instructing universities to continue with the same racial preferences that the Supreme Court had just barred them from using.

The reactionary stances of schools across America, which make little criminals out of children for participating in ordinary child play have gone way too far.

Pop-tarts, key chains, legos, anything which can be simulated to be a gun, or which might actually be a toy gun is enough to garner a serious penalty for what was nothing more than innocent child play when I was a kid. As a child, I played with toy guns, they were some of my favorite toys. I've never wanted to go on a shooting spree as an adult. Many children go hunting or to the shooting range with their parents and never exhibit any negative behavior as a result. Contrarily, the result of learning how to responsibly handle a firearm can help to produce a responsible adult. This video contains yet another example of school hysteria gone to the extreme...

You have to hear this to believe it.

Here's the full transcript, courtesy of Chicks on the Right: Mr. President, Fox News isn't what's making Americans sick about your healthcare law. Your healthcare law is. Welcome, everybody, I'm Neil Cavuto. And excuse this departure from form. But I think this is just poor form. So, it's time we set some things straight. Mr. President, we at Fox News are not the problem. I hate to break it to you, sir. You are. Your words are. Your promises are. We didn't sell this healthcare law. Sir, you did. Remember this? President Barack Obama: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period...

A religious group has filed suit against the Kansas Board of Education seeking to stop educators from adopting global warming and evolution into the state curriculum. The Christian organization said such lessons would violate parents' religious freedom.

The non-profit group, known as Citizens for Objective Public Education (COPE), has attacked Kansas along with 25 other states and the National Research Council for implementing new standards which mandate that mainstream science be taught in classrooms. COPE is based in the small town of Peck, Kansas, to the south of Wichita. Fifteen parents and their 18 children joined the suit, with one telling the Associated Press they are Christians who want their children to believe "life is a creation made for a purpose." The Kansas state Department of Education and the state board are named in the suit. "The state's job is simply to say to students, 'How life arises continues to be a scientific mystery and there are competing ideas about it,'" said John Calvert, a local attorney involved in the case.

The state-sanctioned abduction of the Wunderlich children from their home in Germany has renewed interest in the asylum case of another German family seeking refuge in America.

The abusive treatment of its citizens by the German state has forced many families who only wish to educate their children in the traditional values of the Church to flee the country. Those who stay risk losing their children, their liberty, or both as the State unceasingly abrogates our natural, human rights. In the early morning hours of August 29, 2013, a team of at least 20 German state officials, including social workers, police officers, and special agents descended upon the home of Dirk and Petra Wunderlich to remove by force their 4 children (ages 7-14) in Darmstadt, Germany. The SWAT-style raid was conducted on the family's residence because of the Wunderlich's continued homeschooling of their children in violation of the German ban on the practice of educating one's own children in accordance with religious beliefs and beyond the influence of the state-sanctioned curriculum.

A grieving Brooklyn father whose son drowned during a field trip back in June is living with a constant reminder of his loss -- because the teen's school won't stop calling to ask why the boy has been skipping class.

"I think, why are you calling, why are you telling me this," Jonas Pierre told the New York Daily News. "Don't you know my son is dead?" Jean Fritz Pierre passed away after a drowning accident while on a class trip to Bear Mountain State Park. The 16-year-old was swimming with a friend in Hessian Lake - a body of water banned to swimmers that is also known as "Bloody Lake."

Many parents, fed up with the government "Common Core" standards for public schools, are now turning to homeschooling.

Ron Paul has been a longtime supporter of homeschooling. In fact, he created a his own curriculum to help parents effectively homeschool. Dr. Paul recently wrote a book called The School Revolution, which gives parents tip on how to best teach their children about American liberty. Paul recently went on MSNBC to discuss the new book, when he was attacked by a BBC reporter. This reporter accused Paul of wanting all women to quit their jobs to homeschool their children.
