You can't even say it!

 

At least not if you're in high school.

 

This is a good thing, really. I mean, imagine how much easier the kids will be to handle if the administrators can suspend them for their behavior not on school grounds.

 

Note which side Bush and Cheny are on. (Hint, it's not the side in favor of free speech...)

Dude, Jesus doesn't smoke weed.  He doesn't.  That ain't free speech, Man.  That's just... wait... What? :-)

Big Brother doesn't want your kid to have the right to say ANYTHING while s/he is being indoctrinated, er, I mean edumucated at its federally funded institutions of higher learning.  They would just as well everyone gave up his/her free speech rights as they walk in the door.  Especially when it comes to talking about illegal drug use.  Even if what you say is "vague and nonsensical."

After all being vague is almost as much fun as this other thing...

This is definately dangerous as far as arguments go.  Don't worry next year this will violate the next level of the patriot act.  I think we should step back and evaluate how little value this adds and how likely this is to get VERY expensive.  As soon as this nonsense starts up some kids are going to push buttons and administrators are going to feel like they are the new champions of moral standards and the ACLU is going to come knocking on the door.  Suddenly it won't seem so harmless when the school attorney is the highest paid municipal employee.  This will go down as an exciting part of the war on drugs.  Oh wait that's not going so well is it?

Yeah, this happened in my hometown, its become a running gag of sorts. I saw a bumper sticker that was "Bong hits for Murkowski", our former governor.

People shouldn't be surprised. Our civil rights have been eroding for years and years now, and this could be one of the final cracks that splits Lady Liberty to pieces.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting my passport and getting ready to move abroad. I have hated the course of the past 8 years, and if it gets any worse...

The sure sign that the speaker isn't really interested in free speech, except for himself.

 

Good thing that, at least so far, our courts have found that the remedy for hateful, spiteful, idiotic, or just plain goofy speech is not regulation -- it's more speech.

 

We'll see if they tell Ken Starr, and the Bushies to pound sand or not.  

 

My money's on "pound sand."
