    “But at the same time, even if I do want to use words, and use them over and over again, it’s my right to do so.”

    Apparently relies strongly on the first amendment... while trying to deny others their rights under the second.

    I can't.
    The boy learned that life is a series of choices, and choices have consequences.

    He got off light. Cursing the wrong people can get you hurt. Or killed.

    I have some very trash mouthed younger grand kids who drop F bombs like we woud say hi. They was obviously not raised right. It would have got my mouth washed out with lye soap if I had pulled that back in the good old days. The world is in a big mess.

    The student showed no more disrespect or use any language our current president has not used. If the president can do it and allow his staff to do it everyone can do it . One of trumps press secretaries was on the news talking about anther white house staffer , Steve Bannon , sucking his own ding-a-ling.

    trump as made fun of the disabled called people names and cursed in public . That is the standard. It is now acceptable to brag about cheating on three wives, to admit to paying off porn stars ( trump threatened to sue for 20 million should Stormy break the Nondisclosure agreement.) To use "locker room " talk when describing sexual assaults.


    The student should not have been reported . If reported the school should not have taken any action against him. Did he say it in school at an assembly ? NO. Not a crime and the school should not have taken any action.
    The staff member was not being cursed at only his boss . So which one of you reading this has never called a Congressperson or senator an ass or worse ?

    Let me get this straight.

    The boy thinks a God-given right should be restricted by the same government the right to keep and bear arms was codified to restrict, yet he thinks he has a right to use profanity? Profanity directed toward an elder, at that?

    You just wanna bitch about Trump; seriously doubt you ever 'saw both sides' as your OP states.

    With all Constitutionally granted Rights - comes the inherent requirement of taking responsibility for our own decisions and choices while exercising those Rights. The kid has as much Right to say what he said as Trump has to say what he says. Now, the kid gets to be responsible for the outcomes his choice brings with it... just like you want Trump to be responsible for the outcomes of his choices.

    You don't get it both ways.

    Exercising one's rights come with risks and consequences.
    Just because you have the right to do something, doesn't always mean you should.

    On that protest day I didn't see one single kid standing outside of a school. Ya know why?

    Because I was at work PAYING FOR THOSE LITTLE TURDS EDUCATION; that they obviously aren't taking advantage of because this prepubescent SJW doesn't even understand what the 1A says or means!
    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.
