    8-0 SCOTUS Free Speech Win

    Redskins? OK. Slants? No problem. Trademarks of disparaging names will remain protected.

    In Major Free Speech Victory, SCOTUS Rules for 'The Slants' and Strikes Down Federal Trademark Restriction - Hit & Run : Reason.com

    Sounds fair to me. So, I am very happy to see all SCOUTUS judges, Left and Right, agree.

    Come to my new restaurant: The Fur Burger.

    Another stupid law, another unanimous overturn.

    I'm all for the ruling also. Government in my opinion shouldn't be in the business of deciding what one can say or not or in this case trademark. Let whomever trademark whatever name or phrase they want. If it offends too many people, that business or band or whatever is bound to go out of business.

    Let people decide what offends them or not. Keep government out of it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I agree. Right to free speech can only be violated by the government. Not private citizens. If I yell at someone expressing a boneheaded opinion, tell them to sit down and shut up, I'm not violating their right, I'm using my own.
    Only the government can violate the right to free speech.

    Back in the 70's there was a place in Goose Creek, SC called the "Bearded Clam". And it wasn't a TT bar.

    Just don't give these pathetically racist "businesses" public $$$ for new stadium, etc...

    Hopefully we are smarter than that.
