You can't just say whatever you want to.

Ahhh but you can say what you want. The US constitution is all but toilet paper now. So I say, if the government are trying to take your bill of
rights away then everything is open season.
I say what I want all the time. A spade is a spade. Just like a disabled person is still a spastic even though it is now not PC to call them that..in
the UK...they even changed the Charity name some years back from the Spastic Society to SCOPE. I still say the spastic society.
it is what is is. Do you think black people really like being called black?? After all they are really brown or dark brown. People from pakistan and
india are brown and in Canada white people call them brown people and they don't like it.
We all use the term Black people or white people....and its exceptable....but you call a Chinese person a yellow person and they look at you like you
just touched their mother.
Speech is all about the current times and the interpretation of the group you are referring too.
So, the 1st amendment is void and bs anyway and it was written by people who "thought" they were great thinkers and scholars but really they are no
different from the idiots now-a-days who try to change things to suit societies "needs".
Let people say what they want is my vote. Words are just that....WORDS. too many sissified people now-a-days who lead with feelings and heart well
before their minds.
