    Link: East Washington teen`s sketches attract Secret Service scrutiny - Anti-Bush drawings can get you punished, apparently.

    What`s next, getting jailed if you don`t vote for him?

    By the age of 15 most kids should have learned in government class that ANY threat towards the president, no matter how minor, is investigated by the Secret Service. What a dumb ass :-P

    I don`t see the big deal.

    They`re doing all but passing another Sedition Act.

    I don`t think that a picture counts as a threat... unless he`s actually planning to pump Bush`s head with helium and stick it on a stick.

    "They`re doing all but passing another Sedition Act."

    Nah, they just updated it to a fancy patriotic acronym. ;-)

    OMG! It`s a DRAWING! and the kid is 15! What`s he going to do to Bush? I think the SS overreacted here.

    I am very surprised at the school officials that they even reported it, because Washington state is not known for being a supporter of Conservative Republicans, I should know I have the displeasure of being stationed there.

    Holy shiite. This is in my back yard. I`m from Seattle.

    "i see it as a concern and not a threat, and its because of that i think they acted justfully"

    The concern was not justified.

    "...because Washington state is not known for being a supporter of Conservative Republicans, I should know I have the displeasure of being stationed there."

    (Why`d you capitolize C and R?) Any dang way, you should go for a drive some day. Vertually everywhere outside of Seattle is a haven for conservatives.

    What does this have to do with conservatism?? The same thing would have happened 4 years ago had the kid drawn Clinton`s head on a stick. The SS is required to investigate this kind of stuff.

    No it wouldn`t have, scuzzy. The atmosphere wouldn`t have been tense enough for the school to report it.

    More then that, there is something incredably wrong with a culture that claims to have as its central guideing princable "liberty," which then turns around and investigates people for political cartooning. If the kid had drawn an acurate map of the route the presidental motorcade was going to be taking then you might have something. Investigating on anything less then that is literally spitting on the graves of the founding fathers. Literally.
