I for one deplore having to hear others use vulgar and disgusting vocabulary. It is not necessary, nor appreciated.
What gives the Neanderthals the right to expose other persons to their despicable vulgar vocabulary?
I have the right to go to a restaurant, mall, or any other public establishment, without hearing sewage pour out of other person’s mouths .
Please do not give me the “Freedom of Speech” lecture, as others misinterpret it to suit their own means. Perhaps one should speak to a W.W. II veteran and ask them why they put their LIVES on the line, every day for four to five years in regards to Freedom of Speech. Do you honestly think anyone will say… “I fought in the War so that others can use vulgar vocabulary whenever, wherever, and as often as they choose?”
The Freedom of Speech that I was taught by a veteran was: So that fellow Canadians have the right to print an article in a newspaper expressing their views and opinions or write a book etc., without the fear of being persecuted, incarcerated, or shot. This can be achieved without slanderous, vulgar vocabulary.
There are rules and regulations in society, that we all have to abide by. One does not go to work, school, nor go into a court of law, speaking the “F” Word and other profanities, so please enlighten me, as to why it is acceptable in other public areas?
No, I’m not an old fuddy duddy, nor a prude, I have had my share of cuss words, but I do not take it to the streets, public areas, in front of elderly people, children, or mixed company! Believe it or not, I’m able to complete two sentences without the ” F-Bomb”, or other profanity, in every second or third word! Will wonders ever cease?
So yes, I’m 110 per cent in favour of people being fined for the use of profanity, as it is out of control, and like an epidemic all across Canada. (I’m ashamed to admit ) Like all epidemics, it is very much overdue to put a stop, or at least a deterrent, to those feeling the need to use profanity.
So instead of snickering and jeering at the good people of Taber for wanting to clean up their town of this vulgar virus, and asking them to justify their actions, it is the Potty Mouths that should have to justify their reasons/excuses of sewage coming from their mouths.
We as human beings, are suppose to be more intelligent, be civilized, and part of society, that goes hand in hand with respecting for yourself and others, manners, common decency, and law-biding citizens.
