This is only a test, have this image printed on a t-shirt and send your little one to school wearing it.

How many liberals' heads will have a conniption fit trying to figure out if it is acceptable or not?

Meanwhile kids are being suspended and/or expelled for pastry gun, NRA T-shirt (possible 1 year jail sentence) and merely playing cops and robbers.

Interesting how they tweeted a picture from 2011. What, they don’t have any newer pictures of Obama being a great dad for Father’s Day?
