    I don't understand what's going on in this country right now, but I sure hope we get over it soon.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Well I hope that poor womans attorney wins her case. Meantime since she lives in California I think she should look into relocating to a more 2A friendly state as it's quite obvious restraining orders are NOT working.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    I think the school did the right thing. Her presence endangered the students. Unfortunate for her, but necessary IMO.

    I read that article also. So now you are held accountable for what some crazy person does? What if it was a stranger stalking her, would they do the same? I understand the concern of parents, but how about beefing up school security instead?

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Well, while I don't agree with the firing of the DV victim, it was not the government doing the firing, but the Catholic church. Given that a private school is a business, they weighed the consequences of keeping her on and they felt that she was not worth the risk of several families pulling their kids out. The school did have to go on lock down due to her ex. If I were her, I would get the heck out of dodge while the old man is in the slammer.

    As far as the feds hiring criminals at State - well, the person who was running State was, IMHO up to her eyeballs in the death of Vince Foster. She is just not a convicted criminal.

    In the case of O being against religious liberty - well that's nothing new. Disappointing, but not new.

    Pretty much summed it up right there... Dunno about Vince Foster... but there's plenty of other crime in Billary's closets.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Its a terrible shame that once again the victim is the one that pays and this type of injustice and continues to spread. Maybe out there away from never never land a school district will see this and be able to offer her a job rather the see a teacher of many years be wasted. Hopefully it will be in a state where she would rights instead of being condemned, I wish her well

    You forgot "Black Hawk Down" when she was the shadow SOD & SOS & AG for her Hubby Bill as well that real military genius Les Aspin!
