Warning: This post contains profanity

Sen. Robert Ford pushes to outlaw profanity:

State Senator Robert Ford is hoping to outlaw lewd language and is pushing for a bill that would prohibit profanity.

Under the pre-filed bill, buy cialis cheap profanity could land you in jail for up to 5 years and/or cost you up to $5, generic cialis 000 in fines.

Which words are exactly considered profane is still unclear, but the bill does have a list of qualifications for profanity including words or actions that are lewd, vulgar or indecent in nature.

We spoke to Debra Gammons with the Charleston School of Law about freedom of speech.

She reminds that the First Amendment is not absolute. You cannot say whatever you want whenever you want to.

I have two things to say about this:

  1. The First Amendment IS absolute. Our courts just refuse to treat it that way.
  2. Fuck you, Senator Ford.
