I wonder whether Will woud like to post on this board ?


As he's only 10, it would be a violation of the Terms of Service.

Ask me if I care.

@OmSigDAVID,
You ought to. His posts would probably not be allowed to go forth. There are legal reasons behind this, IIRC.

@OmSigDAVID,
we had heard that the ap picked up the story from our local newspaper. a friend did a google search, and here we are. i have commented on a few sites, mostly to clear up misconceptions or down right falsehoods. will is gonna be thrilled that people are listening to him! he wants people to know that his voice matters, and that he can make a difference even at 10. please feel free to email me at [email protected] and i will have him write you back. so we dont violate terms and such. your confrance sounds facinating. please excuse the grammar ect. conversing while working taxes the brain. Smile we are just pleased to find support. even the logically thought out opposition is nice.
once again, thank you for your support and kind words

The Constitution doesn't apply here; it doesn't prevent private businesses from restricting speech on their property, which is exactly what this website is.

Or something.

@willsmom,
Well, Willsmom, I'm certainly sorry I said the kid sounded a bit pompass now (that wasn't the right word anyway, and I just meant it about 'tone') especially since I agree with his right to refuse reciting the pledge and continue to think the sub teacher is out of line.
I'd be proud of him too.

Stick around a2k if you find the time - we often disagree with each other vehemently and generally enjoy good arguments on all kinds of subjects - plus, we don't always argue.

Yeah, OK, but u implied that there is a law against
kids posting on the Internet. If there is, then it screws the victims
out of their constitutional rights.

No law, but the Terms of Service of the site itself prevent it.

Lemme say this about TONE, Osso:
its IMPORTANT to keep our priorities straight here.
Government was CREATED by us, the citizens; it is our child.
We created it so that it woud work for US, not so that we 'd grovel in front of IT.
It seems to me, that as far as tone is concerned,
the proper citizen's tone toward government
is as an employer toward his servant; i.e., keep the damned thing in its place.

If Will was born in America, then he is a CITIZEN.

I like to bear in mind
that arguments shed light, whereas quarrels shed heat.

Is Canadia a nation?
I 'm not sure.
To be a nation, it needs more than one republic.
We have 50 of them.
