    The school can get fucked. And why the fuck is the cunt Governor's office wasting taxpayers money by searching for his name on the internet?

    He might have that reputation defender service. Fuck him. Political discourse is the #1 reason why we have freedom of speech in this country.

    Back in high school I formed a website about a teacher I didn't like. I don't really remember much about what was on it, but it was brought down following a trip to the principals office.

    Probably would've got press if I was a hot white chick.

    The real mistake was having a Twitter account with your real name on it. Why anyone would ever post their real opinions/thoughts/comments/photos online and tie it to their real identities still confounds me. I don't have a Facebook site and the Twitter I use has a fake name. I can say all the shit I want without a care in the world.

    She should have used the opportunity to tear that fuck a new asshole.

    The school should be happy that they have at least one kid who even knows the name of the governor.

    They're going to have to do a lot more damage control now. Oops.

    I guess you're not currently receiving mandatory education at a government institution. Or any reputable institution. Nor are you working or doing business with one. Otherwise, saying embarrassing things would definitely inconvenience you.

    But people who do are going to be limited in their speech. Let's not kid ourselves about that. It would be impossible to apply the First Amendment to that situation. The authors of the First Amendment never dreamed of having such a situation. They just figured Americans would do a better job raising their children without government involvement, so they didn't address the situation. (well, they did address it, by limiting government to a list of enumerated powers-but that's being ignored)

    They certainly didn't write the First Amendment so that kids could say whatever they want in public, with no repercussions from their teachers or school. Interpreting it that way is just silly. I still agree that she shouldn't be punished for this, but it's not a First Amendment issue unless you're ready to apply the First Amendment indiscriminately (meaning kids would be allowed to express themselves in any way they please, and their school could do nothing. That would put an end to public education pretty fast.

    Will the school also be looking into other students that may have used an electronic device during school hours or are they just going to single out one student?

    and God damn rich cunt!

    I think the only reason anyone cared is because she claimed she said this to the governor's face, when in fact she did not, if she would have just said "Hey I think the governor of this state sucks" nobody would have bothered her

    I have never believed that free speech includes making shit up - opinions = absolutely, lies = no way

    I don't disagree, I'm just saying if she had not lied about saying something to the governor's face then it never would have been brought to the attention of anyone

    Internet tough girl busted. Maybe she'll learn a lesson that words have consequences.

    Why? And yes, lies are covered under the First Amendment. You're free to lie.

    Nothing she said was consequential.

    She's an 18 year old girl. She's incapable of saying anything inconsequential. She just needs to learn the lesson to stop lying on the Internet and start blowing me.

    Yet if she was some conservative who got in trouble talking shit about the president you'd be bitching up a storm.
