Scores of students waited outside the Supreme Court on Monday for a chance to listen to arguments in a test of student speech rights - a high school senior's display of a banner reading "Bong Hits 4 Jesus."Gosh, now that has SOOOO got to be a Tough One There....
"I would never do it, but at the same time, it's free speech," said Chaim Frenkel, 17, of Silver Spring, Md. Frenkel was one of 13 seniors and their teacher from the Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy who arrived at the court at 4:30 a.m. EDT.
Natasha Braithwaite, 20, a junior at Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, Md., got in line at 7 a.m. with a definite opinion about the case. "In every possible way, his First Amendment rights were violated," Braithwaite said.
Joseph Frederick was a high school senior in Juneau, Alaska, when he decided to display the banner at a school-sanctioned event to watch the Olympic torch pass through the city on its way to the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

I mean the Prez is still selling the whole,
With Democrats pushing for an end to the Iraq war now entering its fifth year, President Bush pleaded for more patience Monday, saying success is possible but "will take months, not days or weeks."And GIVEN that we know that the Argument From Intelligent Design leads us to the Divinity of Dubya, the only point worth wondering about is whether or Not Jesus is the older or younger brother of Dubya The Divine, and hence Doing Bong Hits For Jesus is supporting the President to Support The troops....
The war has stretched longer, with higher costs, than the White House ever predicted. On the fourth anniversary of the day Bush directed the invasion to begin, the president made a televised statement from the White House Roosevelt Room to defend continued U.S. involvement.

I mean, wallowing around in this constitutional stuff, would, well, mean RETREATING IN THE FACE OF THE HOLY CRUSADE to the time before the whole world changed!!!!
And we know that would only Encourage the Enemy!!!
