CA Lawmakers Ban Cussing -because they’ve got nothing better to do.

The California busybodies have apparently nothing to do this sesison so they’re invading your right to free speech. I mean its not like the budget is a high priority or anything.

The Mercury News points out the Calisfornia assembly ” approved a ceremonial resolution turning the first week of March into “Cuss Free Week.” And the senate is expected to follow suit next week.

Anthony Portantino a Dem, will be passing out no cuss jars to lawmakers, and the governor, and expects them to drop some change in the jars if a colorful word slips out. Hmmm. I guess speech isn’t so free after all.

Couldn’t he just email his colleagues and ask them to quit cussing and pay up if they don’t. Why waste lawmakers time, which means taxpayer dimes, bringing it up in the legislature?

Now, it obviously a “fluff thang”, orchestrated to grab some headlines, but honestly can’t the busybodies get busy and do something serious for their state.
