#2 "See this, Steve? This is your unemployment check. This is a symbol, but it's only a piece of paper. It doesn't mean anything. Watch me tear it up into little tiny pieces."

#3 Why the outrage? Compton is only manifesting in the classroom what POTUS and the congress exercise on a daily basis.

#4 See this, Steve? This is your unemployment check.
Who is Steve?

#5 Maybe Steve is tu3031's imaginary friend, like Harvey was to James Stuart.
Scott Compton is the incompetent, n^tball teacher in South Carolina.
But I agree with tu3031 sentiments "This is your unemployment check. This is a symbol, but it's only a piece of paper. It doesn't mean anything. Watch me tear it up into little tiny pieces"

#6 Brings to mind a fellow found hung from an American Legion flagpole in Winchester KY not too long ago. Seems he was a little too public in abusing the flag, and Old Glory bit him back.
Ruled a suicide I believe.

#7 Yes, that cross and flag are cultural symbols, and as mentioned, those pieces of paper in your wallet or that piece of plastic there also are symbols. Somehow this product of 'higher education' never grasped that symbols perform valued functions in society, just like those STOP signals for that speeding 18 wheeler who'd otherwise T-Bone you on the drivers side of your little personal vehicle.

#8 Hey...there's no need to bring my imaginary friends into this.
Jeesuz, what time was that?

#9 You are so lucky. Last time I saw mine I was hosting this tea party, the theme was birds. They had the nerve to ask me about my rotor and I said, "Rotor, thats a feather, I'm a whirly!"
Only the one dressed as one below par has been back. Hey, is that salmon loaf?

#10 See this book written in this funny scribble called the Koran? It's just a symbol...
