    And yet when some of us warn about the growing police state, other here tell us they cannot see what we're talking about.

    They idiots demand that we tell them, for example, "What rights have YOU lost?"

    It positively astounds me how utterly stupid some of our fellow posters here are.

    As,. not doubt it astounds many others here when they read such tripe.

    I am astounded by this. NJ schools cannot even ask for students' SSN#s. How would this info be traced? By name? What a clusterfuck that would be.

    I have a real problem with FERPA. Parents who are paying for their children's education should be able to have access to their records. But check this out. While parents of children over 18 may not see their kid's grades, strangers can.

    Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
