Colo. school bans tag on its playground
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- An elementary school has banned tag on its playground after some children complained they were harassed or chased against their will.

"It causes a lot of conflict on the playground," said Cindy Fesgen, assistant principal of the Discovery Canyon Campus school.

Running games are still allowed as long as students don't chase each other, she said.

Fesgen said two parents complained to her about the ban but most parents and children didn't object.

In 2005, two elementary schools in the nearby Falcon School District did away with tag and similar games in favor of alternatives with less physical contact. School officials said the move encouraged more students to play games and helped reduce playground squabbles.

We did too, on school grounds after hours in the woods. The guys with the pump rifles always added extra pumps, one of the best guns was the BB-matic, 18 shots semi-auto.

One of these days, I really want to work for the organization behind all of this. At this point I'm believing in some free masons-esque Behind The Scenes group doing things like anti-Tag and removing Suicidal from that stupid song for some nefarious reason. (And no, it's not the Democrats/liberals. This is far beyond what they can do.)

Well if I had a kid I would organize a kiddy fight club as a counter to this nonsense. If we get any softer we'll melt .

First rule of kiddy fight club, you get the shit kicked out of you if you tell your parents about kiddy fight club.

BB gun wars.

We did that too... Daiseys and Crossmans. We used to duct tape magazines on our jackets for body armor. We had wars that lasted for days. We took prisoners, kept them in POW camps, executed spies before firing squads, etc, led bayonet charges, hand to hand combat... we had a blast.

One of my friends still has a BB lodged in his neck to this very day.

I just signed my kid up for a soccer team. They gave us this "code of conduct" sheet to sign that made me sick to my stomach... 20 paragraphs about respect and dignity, non-violence, non-competitiveness, blah blah fucking blah.

The sheet explained how keeping score, even if only informally, was strictly forbidden, and the games were for amusement only... no actual competition allowed.

:icon_roll

We're fucking doomed as a nation.

we fucking used to shoot bottle rockets at each other
We did that as well. Even had a fifteen minute bottle rocket war in downtown Huntington village. No cops bothered us either, which struck me as a bit odd.

I think that I would shoot myself if that happened to swimming...Thank God that parents are so competitive in swimming...of course, parents that don't want their kids to compete don't have too.

My friend used to run a movie theater, and after hours, we'd turn down all the lights, so just the floor runner lights were on, and have world war 3 with bb guns. Fun times.

I thought this was getting out of hand when "smear the queer" was disallowed on playgrounds....now, no tag? Fucking pussies.

Thats when you drop your pants and wipe your ass with the paper and hand it back to the league director. Right in front of the other parents and kids.

Hell, there was a school on TV a month or 2 ago...ALL PHYSICAL CONTACT is forbidden with a 3 day suspension for all infractions. Shake hands with your best friend? You get 3 days.

I have a scar on my nose from a BB. Kind of funny, it lodged under the skin and I had to pop it like a zit to get it out. Put a Band Aid on it and told my Mom I fell on a stick or something.

That's why kids today are faggots. . . My brother and I used to square-off with BB rifles and pistols. We would find "cover" and just fire away at each other. We never got seriously injured. Kids now would get hit once and have to be airlifted to a hospital from the scene. . . Were we just tough or are the kids now just that soft???:huh:

I'm telling you, I am now firmly convinced that there is some organization behind all this. It's not "liberals," it's not "Democrats" it's not any of your weakass political parties or political ideologies. (If anything, it would be business owners more than hippies. Not saying it's Republicans or conservatives. It's some group behind everything.) There is some benefit to keep us and our children fat, soft, lazy and scared. There has to be some reason as to why they want to deaden every impulse (through drugs or punishment by acting), deny every feeling, and take any sort of drive or competition out of us.

I know it might sound like conspiracy theory ranting but right now that is the only thing that makes sense to how the world is the way it is and where it is going.

If it weren't for games like tag and smear the queer I wouldn't have known I had slow white boy disease, and I never would have worked as hard as I did to get over it. Because of the embarrassment of those games and always being the slow kid I ended up being the guy in high school who, even though a white kid, I ran a 4.6-40 because I worked harder to make sure I was never in that spot again.

Failure and embarrassment is all that motivates kids to work hard, take that away and you're creating a generation of lazy douche bags who accept everyone as the lazy, worthless, talentless dipshits they are.

I know EXACTLY why these kind of things happen.... it's Darwinism at its finest. The world is getting overpopulated.... waaaaay overpopulated. Nature cures itself. So... we're going to make everyone a faggot. Faggots don't reproduce. It's nature's way of sayin' "Quit fuckin."
