> And what is this about your First Amendment? Are you not a fan of it?
Sorry for that — I’m a Kiwi, so we don’t have a “First Amendment” per se. We do have freedom of speech protected by our bill of rights, but it isn’t absolute and neither should it be, IMHO.
You might be able to make an argument for banning shirts with messages like “No Snitching,” but in this country we place a higher value on freedom of speech than the rest of the world. It protects some bad stuff, but IMO it’s still a good idea since it also protects “unpopular” speech (such as a religious condemnation of homosexual behavior) that in Europe might be banned under hate crimes legislation.
