This is Amerika, 2012.
Maybe someday you will grow up in Amerika whatever that is.

My how looney we have become.
Well to some school administrators the Bieber song about teen lovers was more age specific for 5 year olds than "God Bless the USA". Isn't that about the same thing you were pointing out?

soon they will fine people for farting in pubic
Your example word would have cost you a lot more if you said it in either of the two households I have lived in as a married man. That word was forbidden by both my wives.

My first wife's other rule was that I couldn't fart in bed. Guess who broke that rule first. It sure wasn't me.

My present wife walks away quick when I fart in a store which I do all the time. She just doesn't hold with doing that.

You don't need the law to hold you back when you marry the right kind of womsn. Old fashioned.

In New York City, spitting carries a punitive fine.

However, vomiting is free.

Thank you foul mouthed people for paying my foodstamps and masshealth. It's about time something is done about people who swear in public only problem is the fine should be higher and also triple it for people swearing in front of kids.

Makes perfect sense, who chooses to vomit? I've been unable to make it to a toilet before and I'm sure store owners don't want people ready to explode their puke everywhere running through their stores looking for a toilet

I grew up in NYC. Those signs were everywhere.

I think it's ridiculous but at the same time, I am really tired of how mainstream profanity has become. I don't wanna hear that crap, unless I'm watching a George Carlin sketch.

I think this is the real reason and intent for the law!

I'm really f*cking happy about it," Mimi Duphily, a store owner and former town selectwoman, said after the vote. "I'm sure there's going to be some fallout, but I think what we did was necessary, goddammit!"
LOL, sounds like my office
