    How far can stupidity be allowed to go?

    Take a read of this article - it beggars belief as to just how stupid supposedly "clever" people can be!

    sorry, disagree with you fiddler. it would be New York and believe. Texas would never do something as asinine as this. or maybe some place like Massachusetts might think of trying this as well.

    Nah.
    What leads you to believe that there would be much difference between the mindsets of the respective two states....??

    It's not a Texas-New York thing, but a broader American homogeny.

    They banned "Fuck" 500 years ago! "Nigger" is a no no

    Can you believe these fucking morons? They "apparently" hold PhD's!!!

    What is the world becoming? It really has gone totally mad.

    This is just a NEW LIST of 50 banned words - this is like fucking 1984 by Orwell, "Quack quack quack"

    Eventually these retards will reduce the English language to about 50 words - most of them being "Yo My Nigger" Yous be gotten Bling" "Hey ma Bitch, you Ho" "Dis bes a cap in yours ass mudafucka" "Yo homey" "Dis Be Rasis" "I Didn Do Nuffin!"

    Fucking retarded bastards! - and these people are teaching and judging the next generation of kids!

    There really needs to be a fucking CULL of these idiots, clubbing little seals I object to, but the fuckers deserve to be brutally clubbed to death!

    They may as well take "Intestinal Fortidude" out of circulation as well as there will soon be no need for it given the next generation of wimps they are producing.

    Who elects these idiots? How do they get into these sort of positions? They are gradually chipping away daily our freedom of expression and freedom of speech!

    How far will they be allowed to go before ordinary people stand up and say enough is enough?

    It just seems like everyone lies down and lets these fucking idiots walk all over them.

    A cull, revolution mass massacre, it is on the cards, these bastards are destroying society.

    What kind of dumb fuck logic is this.

    "If we don't mention cancer, crime and disease and poverty it will all go away.. surely right?"

    or is it a little more sinister like codex alimentarius?

    How the fuck could the US chronicle it's recent history WITHOUT words like VIOLENCE - WAR and BLOODSHED and GUNS
