School Bans the Dissing of Barack Obama

As a libertarian and lover of freedom, I have all kinds of problems with this move on the part of a government school, my biggest issue here being that they are teaching the students of this school that it is okay for government to decide what American citizens can and cannot say.

"Inappropriate comments that may make other students, staff or families feel unwelcome or uncomfortable in school or on the bus will not be tolerated," Superintendent Kevin Bright said in an e-mail sent to parents Monday, Jan. 12.

So, who is it that decides what constitutes an inappropriate comment? Some government bureaucrat? Sorry, but that is utter nonsense, and should be tolerated by no one who truly cares about our freedoms and liberties as Americans.
