Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

Bashing on BumperS

Woman Gets Ticket For Bush-Bashing Bumper Sticker

Decatur, GA -- The officer cited 47-year-old Denise Grier for her bumper sticker that takes a dig at President Bush. It combines Bush's name with a vulgar four-letter word, as in "I'm Tired of All The (blank)."

The officer cited the registered nurse at Emory University Hospital for violating a state law prohibiting lewd or profane stickers and decals on vehicles.
Grier, the officer and an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union will meet in court next month when Grier contests the misdemeanor charge which carries a $100 fine.

Grier told the Athens Banner-Herald yesterday that she's not "a huge political activist or rabble-rouser." But she says, "I am so appalled at the officer's attempt to squash my freedom of speech.
The ACLU says the Georgia Supreme Court ruled more than a decade ago that the law against lewd bumper stickers is unconstiutional.

In addition to the offending bumper sticker, Grier's white Chrysler's rear window sports two other political statements: A crossed-out "W" and "Hillary 2008."

Obscene” speech, “fighting words,” “clear and present danger” speech, defaming and libelous speech “can, consistent with the First Amendment, be regulated because of their constitutionally proscribable content....” R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul, Minn., 505 U.S. 381, 383(112 SC 2538, 2543, 120 LE2d 305) (1992).
In Cunningham v. State, supra, 260 Ga. at 831, we observed that “lewd is much broader than obscene ... meaning, among other things, vulgar, base, evil, wicked,poor, worthless.(1989).2OCGA

People who feel the need to "express" themselves via lewd and crude bumper stickers..ah yes...
vulgar, base, evil, wicked,worthless...

And to boot-A Hillary fan..Well, that explains it, now doesn't it.

    Liberals have no actual ideas, so they must resort to using foul language! How pathetic!

    Great post, Angel! Where did you find it?

    Astoundingly Conscienceless Lawyers Understand exactly what they're doing and as bad as they are maybe wouldn't be quite so bad if they'd actually tell the truth about what it is they're trying to do. We would still despise and detest them but they'd at least have a shred of humanity if they didn't hide their real motives and had the guts to say what their real agenda is.

    American Commie Legal Union.. No surprise there. What a great law though! I love it:>) I wonder if we have one like that here in Texas... All I've got on mine is an American flag and a yellow "We support the troops" ribbon:>)

    Just letting you know that I mentioned your site today. See this.

    LMAO! THAT is the funniest thing I've seen all day!

    Freedom of speach doesn't include vulgarity, and most cities still have (under-used) laws on the books prohibiting it, but I guess Grier found that out...

    leave it to the ACLU to once again jump on the wrong side. They are in the running for the most anti-American organization ever.

    Some apes express themselves by flinging poo. How evolved this person is that she no longer has to fling, but merely say it.

    I say she should be acquitted on the grounds that she is the missing link.

    Oh no..
    my dog went out to do her business and got arrested for leaving her opinion of the aclu on the grass..

    poetic justice i guess!!!!

    Hey, the law is the law. Have to ask, though: would we be saying the same thing if it had been a vulgar word on a Hillary-Bashing bumpersticker?

    Ans: It would have probably never made the news and the ACLU would not have taken the case anyway.

    'Course, as Lady Jane suggests, this scenario would be highly unlikely from the enlightened Right. :D

    The liberals have adopted pottymouth as thier special language.Remember Kerry dropping the F Bomb? Try visiting a left-wing blog sometime...it's like lockeroom of Jr Highschool boys trying to sound tough.
    It's kinda sad really.

    Actually, it's the All Criminal Liberation Unit.

  • At 8:03 AM, Blogger Lawman said…

    Let's see.... Post profanity and filth where the average child can read/see it; okay.

    Post something about community involvement or religious quotes; not okay.

    I ya ask me, the All Criminal Liberation Union has lost it's blinking mind.

    That's MY Freedom of Speach! (of course, I'll probably get sued for saying it since it doesn't go along with their view of the world)

    Why does it always seem to be the folks on the Left that must speak their minds using profanity? How vapid their minds must be if only a vulgar expression can say what's on their minds.

    And they complain that Conservatives hate children? What example are they showing these impressionable ones? Disgusting.

    Well, I'm surprised y'all have left out my favorite answer to what ACLU stands for: Anti-Christian Leftists Union. Would I be saying the same thing if the person had a profane, pro-Bush statement on their car? Absolutely, yes. Filth is swamping our society and the law is the law, until it is taken from the books.

    Howdy! - I'm an 85 yr old blogger & a snake-hunter, and I track down poisonous two-legged vipers that fly planes into buildings, and strap bombs on their women and kids, and I have a bumper-sticker too!

    ** Peace- Through Strength **

    When I see a vehicle with a 'Co-Exist' sticker, I hand them one of mine! IF you want one or two, write:

    Snake Hunt HdQuarters
    P.O. Box 4042
    Oak Ridge, Tennessee
    Zip 37831
