Insulting the president and other government officials is practically a national pastime in the United States. This is a testament to the freedom of our society; in some parts of the world, insulting those who govern earns you swift punishment, or at least official censorship. That isnt the case in America unless you live on a college campus.
Students at Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in Texas found this out the hard way yesterday when they erected a free speech wall a recently popular way for students to highlight the importance of free speech in which students put up a freestanding wall covered in paper, upon which anyone can write anything they want.

I bet if they had insulted President Bush that would not have been a problem
To call this a case where you cannot insult the President, is a lie. You cannot publically display profanity.
It’s so sad to see my beloved USA devolve into the former U.S.S.R.. :(
SWIVE YOU, Hodar!
State University? This is a CLEAR violation of the First Amendment!
I'd be willing to bet that very same professor would have wrote "F--k Bush".
You obviously didn’t read the article. Not misleading at all. The ONLY F word this liberal POS professor objected to was the F obama. You are dead wrong about what can be posted.
Still bothers me when i see the “f” word in print in a non-smut mag. See it lots in college online papers.
According to the legal precedents cited in the article, you are precisely.....wrong.
I’m not sure what you say is accurate. Did you read the second paragraph. They seem to be okay with using that same verb with regards to, “Nazi punks.” So if the word you are talking about is allowed elsewhere, you can hardly contend that’s the reason it’s being removed.
Heck, I’m almost ready to move to the U.S.S.R..
How in God’s Name did this country become so utterly ****in’ stupid!?!?
I appreciate you bringing a bit of sanity to the overwrought histeria.
A relevant quote....
“Take away the power to say “F*CK!”, and you take away the power to say “F*CK THE GOVERNMENT!””. Lenny Bruce
And that’s my Alma Mater. Very sad...

Ask Gibson Guitars if this is true.
This never would have happened at my college, I went to a little place called “F.U.”
No doubt some prog troll has already sent a photo series of the wall to the President’s “AttackWatch” website !
BTW, perhaps students ought to try linking circumcision of their 1st amdenment rights to professors’ tenure ! Now that ought to keep the “ivory tower idiots” busy and out of mischief ! >PS
