What is it with you kids and that word? I'm going to shave you bald, young man, until you learn that hair is not a right: it's a privilege!

So a court has ruled that principals can't punish students for making fun of them online. What? How was this ever an issue? Who thinks it's a good idea for principals to have the power to punish kids for what they do at home? I suppose principals should also be allowed to punish kids for not eating all their vegetables, or playing violent video games. This is just crazy. And the worse part is that they had to have this ruling because the 3rd circuit ruled in 2 different ways, so one group of judges actually ruled that the principal should be allowed to suspend a student for making fun of him on facebook. So they got everyone from the 3rd circuit together and decided by the slimmest possible margin (8-6) that was crazy. Who are these 6 judges who think that public school officials should have the right to get involved in a students personal life. Once a kid leaves school anything he does is his/his parents own business (or maybe the police if there is a crime involved, but in these cases there wasn't.) This is part of the continuing mistreatment of children that goes on in this country because they can't vote. Because children can't vote nobody minds trampling their rights. The fact that they are citizens and entitled to the same rights as adults is meaningless because they can't vote to punish those who would ignore those rights.

They can't vote, but they *can* egg the houses of those judges, *or* vandalize them in more serious ways, *or* kill them and get off easy as minors. Those six judges are playing with fire.

Maybe, or maybe the kids are some dumb and undereducated that they won't be able to take proper recourse to defend their rights. So the teachers' plans finally come to fruition.
