I don't get it. It's OK to curse someone out? What about the rights of the person being cursed? Also, it doesnt seem conducive to good order and peace for a person to be able to curse a police officer with immunity.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

The out and out cursing in public really irrates me. Especially if I have my children with me. This is still enforcable for now.

Too bad this didn't apply so we could cuss out some of the morons we deal with'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
