You've got to be ^*&%$(^%-ing kidding me!!

California has some real problems--I mean REAL problems, but the General Assembly in the Golden State decided that one problem that needed to be addressed was the use of four letter words:
Amid the ongoing — and occasionally tense — debate over how to clean up California's budget mess, lawmakers are trying to tidy something else, almost as unmanageable: our language. Thursday morning, the Assembly approved a ceremonial resolution turning the first week of March into "Cuss Free Week."

With the Senate expected to follow suit next week, all Californians will be asked to bite back on four-letter words and a few choice compound phrases. WT (bleep)?, you ask. Don't sweat: Police officers won't be waiting with soap.
Now, I usually don't condone the use of four letter words, I am a big believer in the First Amendment.

While the bill doesn't impose a fine or other criminal sanction and therefore is not a First Amendment violation--I do think that is just plain f---ing stupid.
