    I was at the concert. We was wearing the weird underwear under the trench coat and that is when people started booing. J. Geils was finishing their tour and were popping champagne when they ended their set." George Throughgood was pretty entertaining. And then . . . The Bass "Duh duh duh do duh" and Under My Thumb starts. Mind blowing.

    Apparently he didn't get the memo about it being a failure. He was issued a permit to dig 13 miles of tunnel in Baltimore today. http://www.latimes.com/business/technology/la-fi-tn-boring-company-maryland-20171020-story.html

    Keef plays rhythm, not lead, and with 5 strings, and with hyper complex tuning. Apple's and Oranges again. Love Joe. But I think the sidetrack was about whether the Stones, as a group, had any good songs. Who can write the blues, who can sing the blues and who can play blues guitar sounds like about 5 different threads to me. Travis

    Immigration marches by Round Rock youths lead to 50 court cases Austin American-Statesman 3 Nov 2006 By Katie Humphrey On Thursday, Round Rock Municipal Court opened the first jury trial of a student charged with class disruption, a Class C misdemeanor, in connection with the daytime protests. Prosecutors argued that the actions of the students, including 15year-old defendant Irvin DeLuna, to the were so distracting that classes couldn’t proceed as normal. Defense attorneys countered that students have a right to free speech. “What’s on trial here is whether joining a march with other students is a crime that Irvin should be punished for,” defense attorney Travis Williamson told the six-person jury in his opening statement. But City Prosecutor Susan CampLee said the protests caused major disruptions for two days.

    It is, but that's the test. The school would have to prove that it disrupted other student's ability to learn. It's from a case called Tinker v. Des.Moines ISD. n December 1965, at a meeting in Des Moines, Iowa, adults and students discussed how they could publicize their objections to U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. The students decided that they would wear black armbands to school to show their sorrow for those on both sides who had died in the war and their support for a proposed truce. When the principals of their schools became aware of the students’ plan to wear the armbands, they adopted a policy that any student joining the protest would be asked to remove the armband and that any student who refused to do so would be suspended until he or she returned to school without the armband. The students were aware of this newly adopted policy. On December 16, Mary Beth Tinker, a 13-year-old junior high student, and Christopher Eckhardt, a student at Roosevelt High School, wore two-inch-wide black armbands to their schools. On December 17, Mary Beth Tinker’s 15-year-old brother, John Tinker, a student at North High School, and several other high school students did the same. The armbands caused some comments and warnings, and some students poked fun at the demonstrating students. One teacher indicated that his lesson was “wrecked” because of the demonstration and that the armbands diverted students’ minds from their regular lessons. However, no disturbances on school premises occurred. The demonstrating students merely went to their classes wearing the black armbands. Mary Beth and five high school students, including John and Christopher, were sent home and told that they could come back to school if they removed the armbands. The students’ parents filed a complaint in a U.S. District Court and asked for an injunction to restrain school officials from disciplining the students. The District Court dismissed the complaint. The court reasoned that the action taken by school officials was a reasonable response to prevent possible disturbance of the public school environment. The parents appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. This court was equally divided, thus allowing the District Court's decision to stand. The parents then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. "It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." — Justice Abe Fortas

    Well pretty close. You can demonstrate against and picket a non-governmental entity from public sidewalks. That is what the McCullen case was about (abortion clinic, a 35' barrier was unconstitutional). An employer cannot limit an employee's speech related to union activities under federal law and Texas law. A.school cannot limit a student's non-verbal expression as long as it is not disruptive. And many other examples.in private sector.

    Boo hoo movements were the basis of how this Country was formed. Most 3-year-Olds are pretty adept at boo hooing their way into getting their needs met, like being fed when hungry, halting all that is happening around them to use a restroom, etc. The Framers guaranteed that Boo Hoo movements would continue and be protected. Whether they gain traction or not to the point where they effect change is a completely different story. I have never see a poor me movement, except a lone individual standing on a corner with a sign about something that pertains to them alone. A movement doesn't even have to be about people. It can be the "poor whales" or the "poor dolphins." One only needs to look into the background of the 26th amendment to see what movements are all about.

    Brain washing occurs in college? Is that something recent?
  25. The Wussification of college students

    The parents. Begins and ends there. Nothing new at all about this generation of college kids, other then they are more informed and have access to more information than ever before.
