Default Re: Swearing Fines

...and what ever happened to freedom of speech? If you say something in public someone is bound to be offended, that does not mean you should be shut up.

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

I like this kind of attitude, whether it is about swearing or the opinion you try to express. If you do not like what someone has to say, be reasonable.

Perhaps I am not the kind of person to support personally restrictive legislation if I get p****d at someone.

Politics and mass media thrives on spin, but so far (strangely enough Polly) the reaction to this legislation in the paper (which I often read) is not at all supportive...

...or maybe its because I choose to read The Age (Fairfax) instead of the Herald Sun (Newscorp)...both are still owned by huge multi-national companies.
