Is this where we are headed?

A divided Supreme Court on Monday curtailed free-speech rights for students, ruling against a teenager who unfurled a banner saying "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" because the message could be interpreted as promoting drug use.

In its first major decision on student free-speech rights in nearly 20 years, the high court's conservative majority ruled that a high school principal did not violate the student's rights by confiscating the banner and suspending him.

The decision marked a continuing shift to the right by the court since President George W. Bush appointed Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito.
What the hell could these people possibly be thinking? Who cares if it is promoting drugs, sex or any other subject these bozo's (or you or I for that matter) don't agree with.

The entire point of "free speech" is that the government and authorities have NO RIGHT to shut-you-up simply because they don't agree with what you are saying.

This is as un-American as it gets folks... If you haven't already, WAKE UP and smell the fascists in power. Do something -- get these people out of OUR government.

As II says: people are getting the gov they voted for... Too bad that government has no respect for the principles outlined in the constitution.
