So..


“[M]any young children of reading age ride in vehicles and are unwillingly exposed to license plates on other vehicles,” the motion to dismiss said. “They sometimes amuse themselves by reading or playing games with license plates. And because vehicles often travel in residential neighborhoods, youth may be exposed to license plates from their yards or driveways.”

The document went on to note that courts often allowed “the physical and emotional wellbeing of youth” to trump free speech rights protected by the First Amendment.

DeVarti, however, said it was “ridiculous” that anyone could be offended by the plate.

“I feel like this is a statement of who I am,” he explained, “and, at the same time, I think that it’s a positive message that we should be conveying of, hey, war is a bad idea, and we should do everything we can to avoid it.”


Michigan has determined that a pro war message, is better than an anti-war message, for the purpose of children and their emotional well being.

I don't know if any of these people understand the world today and realities of things. But there's more proof that your Constitutional Rights can be waived for anybody's hurt feelings.

nah I'm sure they'd be just fine with that.

The list of unique plates and their contents would shock you honestly. War Sux is def on the lower end of the offensive scale.

Its offensive to the machine that tricks young people into signing up to be cannon fodder in a faraway land at the whim and pleasure of corporations. If you're taught from childhood that war sux, you might not get fooled as a teenager into dying for a fake "cause" like "freedom".

Umm. . . . . . war does suck.


"I confess, without shame, that I am sick and tired of fighting — its glory is all moonshine; even success the most brilliant is over dead and mangled bodies, with the anguish and lamentations of distant families, appealing to me for sons, husbands, and fathers ... it is only those who have never heard a shot, never heard the shriek and groans of the wounded and lacerated ... that cry aloud for more blood, more vengeance, more desolation."

"War is Hell."

Both quotes by William Tecumseh Sherman.
