Isn't that improper flag etiquette?

I don't know...but I'm still saluting.

What is it about the phrase; The right of free speech shall not be infringed" that confuses these Connecticut idiots?

Remember when their slogan was "Make a run for the border" ... lol

I always thought it should have been "make a run for the toilet"

I was beginning to think this article is bogus, because there's no way a state could actually make this illegal, but in fact, here it is, in black and white:

"Sec. 53-37. Ridicule on account of race, creed or color. Any person who, by his advertisement, ridicules or holds up to contempt any person or class of persons, on account of the creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race of such person or class of persons, shall be fined not more than fifty dollars or imprisoned not more than thirty days or both. (1949 Rev., S. 8376.)"

Wow cool...1984 is here.

(shaking head)

Methinks the window banger is stupid.

Why would you launch an epithet at the person/people preparing your food? They will in all likelihood, Jesse Jackson your meal.

What about ridiculing on the basis of lack of intellect?

some speech is free, some is not nowadays. I have trouble keeping up with what part is free

No, you got all wrong.

All speech is free...its just that some speech is more free than others.

You can be arrested for being a tacky tasteless loudmouth jerk........how about that. I suspect that when the police got involved she continued to be a jerk resulting in her arrest.....breach of peace???? LOL I will be curious to see how this plays out in court.

""How could this happen in Connecticut????"

Sounds more like Sweden."

It sounds to me as though you are ridiculing people who are Swedish -- or who are of Sweidhs descent.

Careful, or I might have you charged with "ridicule on account of national origin".

/sarcasm

I left Connecticut 15 years ago, mostly because of these idiots that revere the right to claim injury for nonexistant injuries. Yup, the weirdos are taking over. Every culture is better than what used to be ours.

Whatever happened to; sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me? How did society get so candy@ssed anyway. Libtards. There I answered my own question.

"Ridicule an account of race, creed, etc." OK... I'm guessing that this one hasn't, as of yet, attracted the notice of any higher courts.

Heh, heh. Actually I am of Swedish descent myself.

This sort of reminds me of the Swedish pastor who got arrested for giving a sermon about gays.

There was the problem, he took the word Camel as an affront to his favorite mode of transportation.

And "dating". Evidently a very versatile animal, the camel.

...has been charged with ridicule on account of race, creed or color

I guess Kelo took away more than Property Rights...Americans Rights that have been guaranteed by the Cinstitution are stripped away daily...

What does it take for the People to realize the "Tree of Liberty" is extremely parched?!?!

Kinda interesting in light of the Islamazi world going ballistic over cartoons, and our State Department is apologizing for the offense?

Who's values and customs and rights seem to be more important to this Gub'Mint?
