Do you see a problem with kids wearing t-shirts to school bearing the American flag during the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo? Well, the U.S. Supreme Court does. It left intact an appeals court ruling that school officials in California did NOT violate the free speech rights of students by demanding they remove their t-shirts bearing the American flag? Did the Supreme Court get it right or wrong? Whose rights were violated—the kids proud of their Mexican heritage or the kids proud of their American heritage? And, why can’t BOTH show their pride? PLUS: Instead of seeing how loud fans can get, should NFL teams ask fans to keep the noise down when the other team’s offense is on the field for both home and road games? Them, if fans get too loud throw the flag? The Atlanta Falcons were punished for pumping in crowd noise to their stadium, to make it even louder. The NFL fined the Falcons $350,000 and the franchise will forfeit their fifth-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. Punishment deserved or not? ALSO: Should business owners have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason? Indiana’s new “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” grants individuals and businesses legal grounds to defend themselves against claims of discrimination. The fix, would make clear that the law does not allow people to discriminate against gays, as critics contend. Is this a flash back to the 50’s & 60’s where discrimination was condoned & the Civil Rights Movement evolved, or should free enterprise rule—you discriminate, take the business risk and the consequences? THEN: Our fun question of the night--If you were given enough money to buy yourself anything, what would you get? And, our WWL Paretti Opinion poll: Should business owners have the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason?
though. I'm not thinking about that I'm sure you heard that the Atlanta Falcons were punished. For pumping in. Extra crawled dollars to their stadium debate and even louder. Little slap on the rest of 350000.
