The Right does this stuff too. I'm banned from many Right wing sites:

Facebook:

Illinois State Rifle Association
IllinoisCarry.com
IllinoisGunOwnerRights
Washington Times.com (and Emily Miller)

This should be very unsettling to everyone. This is never acceptable especially in schools. Makes me want to see what is in that school library. If you are on the left or right, it should be an informed choice, not indoctrination!

But if you get shot in a library, don't worry: the NRA won't count it as a school shooting.

Like I said, the Right does it too (that's why the Left does it).

you've complained about it before, Vance.

You really should try harder to keep track of who says what, dear.

I am a Constitutional conservative. I have had access to literature from left and right wing authors through all my school years as most of us have. At least we had a chance to compare and choose what we believe to be the right path. These kids don't have a choice. It's liberal or nothing? If the right does it also it is unacceptable as well.

HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Because outside of school, we know that kids today can't get access to the internet!!!

HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Oh COME ON!!!!

Without regard to the filtering software being used by this school, how hard is it to find a freaking hot spot- assuming that the child doesn't have internet access at home or doesn't have any friends who have internet access?

HAHAAHAHAHAHAH!

Good teachers expose students to all sides of a debate. I am sure when you were in school you knew enough to research on your own all the intricacies of politics. Not likely even though you think you are that intelligent. Indoctrination created a generation void of respect and family values. Kids have access at home but how many do more than play games and dabble in mindless social media banter. And you laugh not knowing enough to recognize you liberty eroding. Very funny.

Do you want to pretend that this high school student did not have full access to the internet?

Is this high school in Tibet?

I know I can see seven unsecure wireless access points and if I don't those I can drive around town and see more everywhere- motels, bars, laundromats, private homes, apartment buildings Frat houses...

Filtering software is used in most- perhaps all- public schools.

For good reason.

Do I have to EXPLAIN it to you dear?

DRAW YOU SOME PICTURES?

If this young Hitler youth wants further access to sites that the firewall is blocking, he goes to the network administrator and asks for specific site exception.

Or he gets on his bicycle and pedals around to the corner and picks up access with unfettered internet.

Because you steal bandwidth you think all kids should too?

Not surprising in the least that you would promote thievery.

It is the Democrat way.

Because you get a free phone and food stamps doesn't mean everyone else does too, shug.

A open router is an open invitation, it's like playing plastic buckets out in front of the football stadium.

Free.

It's the IQ thing, Vance. They are concerned you aren't as old as you say you are from the maturity of the content of your posts.

PS: communists aren't right.

You are looking in a mirror again and getting confused.

You can attempt to justify your thieving any way you choose, it is still theft.

Oh look, there is an unattended car on the road, By your thinking it is free for the taking.....

You can call it theft as long and as often as you like but it isn't theft.

Is listening to the radio or watching TV theft?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

You mean the taking of person property?

If I walk into Home Depot whistling "Old Fishing Hole" are you a thief if you don't pay me for you listening?

If you have to make up things I didn't say and insist that is what I mean, you have already lost.
You are looking at pictures of young naked boys: by your thinking it's okay because you have done them no harm.

When you run your router and you are transmitting your radio waves into my yard and you don't pay me for it: You can attempt to justify your thieving any way you choose, it is still theft.

Hahahaha

3 replies to one post to try to justify your being a thief, really got to you didn't I?

You know I am right and your examples are non-sense, like everything else you post.
Whatever helps you ease your thieving mind.

Not to worry, nobody is waiting for you to admit you are wrong.....now where have I heard that before?

LOL
