Beam Me UP Scotty!
Collierville, TN, a surburbian town of Memphis, has decided to add a new law to the books regarding bumper stickers. It appears that the police there will be issueing citations for people who place offensive material on their bumpers. I'll be watching the news to see how they're going to go about deciding what might be offensive cause I get a tad bit upset when folks start in with the censoring bullshit.
Some people are going to take offense to just about anything at one time or another and I believe if it's bothersome to them they should not read, not look, not tune in to, the things they find offensive. I surely wouldn't expect anyone who found offense in redneckdom, the occasional swear word, or off-the-wall cartoon to visit my blog but if they do then they should take it in stride and don't start in with the bitching.
If you let THE MAN take away the little things concerning your right to free speech you might eventually end up being lined up against a wall and shot for saying "jack shit" some day.
