So much for religious freedom.

I have to pee. Anybody got a Bill of Rights I can use? I'm low on TP.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

For $6.49 she could avoid the hassle of having to sue. I support her position and hope she wins, but it's not the number of the beast. This is one of those battles we can win on the cheap. Identity Stronghold has many great RFID blocking products. Please check them out, and someone please forward this site to that girl. Thanks.

Oh, the irony!

John Jay High School?! As in the wealthy federalist John Jay from New York?

Tragic that this happened in Texas, but it sounds like she is getting a real education instead of a state education now. If the student body were as strong, they couldn't pull this kind of stuff off. Tracking kids, really?

Ha ha good point!

Jay was a major enemy of Liberty.

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

A girl after my own heart.

A girl after my own heart. Blazing her own trail, not one to go along with the herd. An individual who knows how to be her own sheperd in life. Kudos Andrea!
