Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Hmmm... "The right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." I'm reading that the people, and no where does this exclude the people who happen to work for the government, have the right to assemble and petition.
maybellynne: You are absolutely right. Everyone has the right to peacefully assemble and petition the government.No where in your speech does it guarantee your petition will be acted upon to your benefit. Public employees need to remember they work for the public and answer to the public as they are paid by the public. Perhaps the public should petition the government for change. Oh, wait. The public did...in the form of elections that put Kasich in his position.

Here's a thought. Pass a law that reinforces parental responsibility. If a teen, under the age of 18 is found guilty of sexting, the parent(s) or legal guardian is fined $500 for the first offense, $1,000 for a second offense and loses their driver's license for 90 days for a subsequent offense and watch how quick this practice ends.
