Stuff like this is why I try to make sure nothing like that EVER gets posted here.

It appears that, sadly, this is another blow for free speech and the First Amendment. Although, admittedly, I did not read the story - but I will - I find it troublesome and dangerous that Americans are even being subjected to having their expression censored. The founding fathers felt strongly that the people should be able to speak out against their government, freely. There is a reason why the rights guaranteed under the First Amendment were listed first. A wise mind once said something like, "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend your right to the death to say it." (Votaire?) My ignorance, guns don't kill, words do. (And now on to the story) bob

What a shame. It's just wrong - a government out of control - even Scalia wouldn't go for this charge. Did I miss a meeting - when was the First Amendment repealed? Makes me hope that George Mason wins the NCAA Tournament - wanna make money? Bet that George W. Bush has no idea who George Mason was (despite the fact that Dubya is destroying what Mason "fathered"). bob

...and sadly, this happened in my state.

I am saddened, if not surprised, at the comments posted here. No song should advocate the violent death of another human being, especially any President. There is Freedom of Speech, and there is the breach of Freedom of Speech, and this person crossed the line. You First Amendment 'supporters' should be ashamed.

I'm saddened and ashamed that anyone calling him or herself an American would defend the government's seizure of private property because of a song parody. Alas, this isn't the first time I've had to roll in my grave over the acts of my descendants.

I am saddened, but not surprised, at the comments posted here condemning free speech. No speech should be subject to the violent death because it is protected under the First Amendment, especially when speaking out against any "President". There is Freedom of Speech, and there is the breach of The First Amendment, and this person did not cross the line. You censorship 'supporters' should be ashamed.

Real Americans support free speech; it would be un-American not to do so. Therefore, "An American" is not an American.

The First Amendment never did, and never will, allow so-called Americans to support people to commit violent crimes, especially murder. I hope this "free-speaker" who had his computer taken away doesn't turn out like another "free-speaker"---Hitler. If you want to follow this idiot, God help all of you.

Right - because guns don't kill people, words do. Where is the harm here? No one above mentioned anything about "following" this guy. The fact is, his, yours and my expression is a right in this country. The Feds have no right to take such action. Forcing people to think the same is Hitler-esque; preserving the right of freedom of expression is American.

Alas... Godwin's Law applies yet again. Please, keep bringing up Hitler, why don't you? Tell me oh wise one, what would Hitler do? (WWHD?) Are you the same sad idiot that often posts here as "Proud American"? I think it really is appropriate to call you an idiot given that you can't figure out that the guy who made the parody involved had no interest in actually killing Bush. If he really did, do you think he would post his plans on myspace? Get a life and a sense of humor while you're at it.

Eye am flattened, and snot slurp-ized, at the grommets roasted here clown-rending glee speech. Glow speech should be subjected to The Violet Breath because it is ejected under the Thirst Amendment, especially when leaking out of many "Pleasure-Vents". There is Stacy Of Keach, and there is the bleach of The Burst Suspenders, and this purse-stun did not floss the wine. Two cents for hip-supporters would be laugh-brained.

I Googled the lyrics to "Bullet"; changing 'Johnny' and 'Kennedy' to Dubya or Georgie Bush would be an exceedingly lame parody anyway - the rest of the lyrics wouldn't need much/any changing to be offensive. IMO this kid is guilty of nothing more than lack of common sense and not much talent. The SS has no case and no grounds to yank his computer - it wasn't a credible threat.

I agree Red. I'm glad you, Robert, and many others see this for what it is: mindless governmental alarmism. They couldn't keep things like 9/11 from happening, because they'd rather confiscate some random students' computers over a freakin' joke.

Red's got a point, I don't agree with what this guy did personally, but you have to admit it was a really lame attempt to look cool. Some people take way too much pleasure in bashing others, while others seem to enjoy dilluting themselves into thinking every little citizen has thier own plan to destroy the government. We all need to chill-lax and get back to nature, people!
