No cussing allowed!


This is kind of baffling. Well, perhaps the people of California had been cursing their government that now their legislature is contemplating of passing a bill that prohibits swearing, by starting with a ceremonial N0-Cussing Day.

Let’s see…somewhere in their constitution, maybe in the first amendment, it says what a person can say and not say. I doubt very much if these people had taken a refresher course of their legislation. But what the heck, they say it’s just ceremonial and not enforceable, nonetheless, a good idea to stop disgusted people from cursing at them.

I hate to swear too. I am the type who don’t use cuss words to express disgust. But if I live there, I will be rolling on floor laughing over this proposition. As I understand it, civility is taught at home and in school and it has no business in governance. And this will be interesting in California with all the Holywood libs!

You see there is swear words in every language and there is no lack of vulgar expression in English language. But words are words. A swear word is composed of letters and syllables just like any other word. I think the problem is not with the language itself but at the intent the word is used and perceived. After all, words don't hurt people. People use words to hurt people. By themselves, the words are meaningless; it takes someone to use them that gave them their true character.

Back to California…the state practically invented poor speech, thanks to Hollywood, and now they are going extra mile to do the right thing? They say profanity is related to drugs and violence.

Lets wait and see if things there will improve...

HOLY SWEET JEEZUS! WHAT THE GODDAMN, MOTHER FUCKING HELL?

Don't even get me started >:(

It's just a small peek at things to come nation wide. The unpatriotic socialist (communist) liberals love putting it into place. Unfortunately, the SHEEPLE in the US don't give a damn one way or the other cause all they can see is the walls of their colon.

As far as the validity of the Constitution, I don't think they even teach it in our public schools (liberal, socialist, brainwashing factories) anymore.

For all the shitheads who forgot, or never learned the second most important document of the United States of America, you better get educated right quick.

Here's why:

The Constitution of the United States

Article VI
(starting at the 2nd paragraph)

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws or any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the Several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or Public Trust under the United States.

Amendment I

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.

Ironically, Article VI allows people such as "The Anointed One" Lord Buckwheat Obama to sign away our Constitution, sovereignty and all our land and money through a treaty such as Copenhagen which is based on the illegal, pseudoscience "global warming" scam.

According to the same unpatriotic, socialist (communist) liberals and mainstream media (CNN, MSNBC), any opposition to Lord Obama is "racist" and should be illegal. This is after eight years of the same kinds of political coverage and same hateful jokes and smart ass comments about Republicans and Bush Jr.

Even so, until the US Empire signs away all our rights to another government, the US Constitution is all that counts. If you live in the USA and don't like it, GTFO and don't let the border crossing gate/airplane door hit you in the ass.

Nuff said.

BTW. I forgot to mention. That bullshit Odette mentioned about swearing leading to drugs and violence and yadda yadda yadda? I've been cussing almost since the time I could talk (and proud of it).

I've never been drunk and only tried pot twice. My friend uses it when her pain meds conk out. Didn't see the use in it recreationaly for the 39 yrs before I tried it, and still don't now. To each his own.

I learned my first cuss words from my old man. He's never tried drugs and makes fun of people who do. He can drink like a fish all night long and still drive home (he has no clue how he got home all those times from the bowling league). But, he's a happy drunk. Doesn't get violent.

I've known or met lots and lots of people throughout my life who swear as much, if not more than I do. Most of them make more money than I ever will and still haven't tried pot or any other drug.

I've also met people, some "religous", who never swear much at all only to find out they're pot heads or closet alcoholics. My brother had a friend like that. Emphasis on the "had". The guy was a total pot head. My brother was so pissed. Just more liberal, communist...errrrrr...socialist propaganda.

They need to get a life and kiss my hairy arse.

is this makling rules for the sake of it ?
I swear when I am very agitated but I can't stand it when used every other word as part of speech - that's plain ignorant

Some teens stated a no cussing day and it probably seemed like a positive thing to a government member. It won't pass, but I do wish that it wasn't so commonplace for people to use vulgar language-not just cuss words.

Odette said...

AA,
i was surprised that despite your litany, you only swear once, at the beginning, and to think that you don't even live in California!
xoxoxo

Odette said...

Mimi,

I'm not American but freedom of speech is on condition that no one is harmed by it. Normally that means slander but it could be looked at differently but that would be a question for the supreme court. Does cussing cause harm and is it therefore a form of assault? Threatening harm is already an offence but in this case I tend to think it is mainly a case of not being to speak english at all correctly.

I had special training not to swear. Almost the first thing they did with officers was send them to see Shakespeare. His words could tear someone down to size without swearing. Also any person who has served in the military has been dressed down by a Sgt Maj who never needed to use a single cuss word. Believe me it would be less effective if they had.

it's ridiculous, who would watch and guard anyway. don't they have any other sensible and intelligent things to implement? for me it's full of BS! and nonsense. watch every movie there's hardly any scene without swearing. can they put restriction on it? They can go back to the stone age, but I'm pretty sure there were already swearing in their grawlings during that period.

Remember there are places that are full of children. I worked on the subway London's version of the underground. Among the by-laws for riding the trains were no smoking ( this is since 1954 ) and no fowl language along with things like no gasoline on trains etc. Complaints were enforced. 1st offense someone would get a ticket. All tickets were $500.00. If someone were a repeat offender they could end up with a night in Jail. I have even known of people getting restraining orders against them. In the case of restraining orders if the judge order them not withing 1000 yards of the TTC they would have an option move as nowhere in the city is more then 1,000 yards from a transit line ( bus and streetcar as well as subway were included ) or stay in jail for contempt of court until they made arragnements to move.

Imagine if someone went into a kindergarten class and exercised the right to free speech. I imagine the school, teacher and school board would all be charged. As I said before it is free speech as long 1. It is true and no one is hurt or threatened. 2. State you intend to come back with a gun and kill everyone and you will be charged with threatening. In such cases free speech is not treated as a universal right.
