A War on Profanity?

It's hard to believe that someone could come up with an idea that is dumber than the War on Drugs, but South Carolina State Senator Robert Ford has gone and done it (via Ice Station Tango):


Now, why would we, as a community, want to take a productive member of society and turn him into the taxpayer's problem by throwing him into jail or prison, when all he did was drop the f-bomb (or pick up a bit of weed for the weekend)? Plus, if swearing were outlawed, we'd miss out on wonderful moments like this one (via One Good Move):

Oh, hell, June, let's really say what we mean: What fucking moron thinks this shit is a good idea - or even goddam enforceable?



But I have a another problem: When did people born in 1942 turn into "old"? I found myself having a hard time combining the joke teller's year of birth with the concept "old". I must have missed that memo. (I also missed the one that states I am now a middle-aged woman. NO WAY!)

I'm not a huge fan of gratuitous profanity, but a war on it? Don't these people have bigger fish to fry? Plus, all our 'wars' are so successful...
