I should have posted this yesterday but other more important stories had to take precedence… Anyway, you have to had to California’s legislature, the state is effectively bankrupt and this is the kind of crap they’re wasting time and taxpayers money on:
California lawmakers have a history of trying to keep the state’s air and waters clean. Now they’re tackling language.
The state Assembly is scheduled to vote on a resolution Thursday calling for a statewide “Cuss Free Week,” to occur annually during the first week of March. If approved, it would go to the state Senate for a final vote on Monday.
The rest of next week will be officially swear-word free if both houses approve the resolution.
The resolution by Assemblyman Anthony Portantino, D-La Canada Flintridge, was inspired by a South Pasadena teenager, McKay Hatch, who founded a No Cussing Club at his junior high school in 2007. His efforts to stamp out profanity have generated international attention, with 35,000 members joining the No Cussing Club’s Web site.
That’s right, I said crap… That’s what this resolution is. It’s a waste of time that distracts from the urgent budget issues Governor Schwarzenegger and the legislature need to address.
