Student Suspended for Star Trek Pledge of Allegiance

Beauty Dish

An 8-year old was suspended from school for 1 day...wait for it...because he cited his own "Star Trek" version of the declaration of independance.

It turns out that the source of the complaint came from some other kid's parent. What the hell is it with parents trying to discipline their neighbors' kids? And doesn't the administration have more important things to worry about than this? Arggg. Wackjobs like this drive me nuts.

Apparantely here is what the kid said:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United Federation of Planets, and to the galaxy for which it stands, one universe, under everybody, with liberty and justice for all species."

Now that is certainly something parents should be fearful of. So if you have school kids, don't worry about bullies, drugs, and violence in your schools...be sure you weed out the students that don't share your views. After all - free speech should only be the speech you want to hear...that's how it works right?

What was the parent's punishment to the little trouble maker? A Star Trek marathon! Hehe. That little shit sure got what he deserved. hehe.

The administrator should abviously be fired. If for nothing else than opening the school district to a healthy sized lawsuit and legal battle that they cannot win.

Oh, and for the parent that ratted on this kid & school administration...the Supreme Court has already ruled (several times) that the kid can say whatever the hell he wants or nothing at all (West Virginia St. Bd. of Ed. v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624 (1943))...but the Supreme Court likely won't mean anything to these $%@#s.
