    Protest on ban of Obama's speech

    Protest on ban of Obama's speech - iReport.com I reead the rules and ireports do not seem to be banned from BN

    Protest on ban of Obama's speech
    tHIS NEWS STORY SAYS THAT " McHenry High school's [East and West Campus] administration is with-holding the students right to view the upcoming Obama speech.

    Some students supposedly had " been standing outside the school on the sidewalk, protesting with signs to passing vehicles and people to get everyone involved,"

    I wonder if this was a real honest to God protest against the B.O.O - Ban On Obama or was it that the protesting kids were ticked that they didn't get off time to sleep during the POTUS speech

    What do you think ?

    It should be from this section, as it is basically a blog site.

    Students do not "have a right" to view Obama's speech at school.

    I agree with you on this one. The current educational system gives students almost no rights at all.

    I believe the ban on Obama's speech were necessary, but I watched the revised speech and thought it presented a good message. Only a few people know the content of the original, so we will never know if the concerns about it were justified.

    Just like any program you can DVR it and watch it everyday if you want to.


    Incidentially GWB was crucified by the democrats for having the exact same speech.

    George Bush: School Speech, 1991


    "Democrats, then the majority party in Congress, not only denounced Bush's speech -- they also ordered the General Accounting Office to investigate its production and later summoned top Bush administration officials to Capitol Hill for an extensive hearing on the issue."


    Wasted time and money on hearings even.

    I hope congress doesnt waste any more time and money on that bs this time.
    Thank you

    If you've never heard of this site, how could you consider it mainstream media?

    Read the guidelines again.

    Is all mainstream media well know? I read Irish Times online isn't that mainstream but how many people heard of it.

    Seriously I will check the guidleines but are Ireports excluded ?

    The President offering encouragement to school children!

    No worse than George Bush trying to read to children. Or trying to read?

    Last time he tried to do that, well, you know.
