The First Amendment ~*Donna*~ Helgeson ~*Donna*~
I came across information that....

"The California Supreme Court has been asked to approve an injunction against uttering words on a government-prescribed list of "prohibited epithets." In the name of protecting workers from verbal harassment on the job, a lower court issued orders directing an employer and its supervisors not to let certain words pass their lips. The words themselves are verboten, regardless of their context or the tone of voice in which they might be used."

How interesting. I'm sure that when that injunction gets passed, it's only a matter of time before "WORDS" of all kinds (meaning both the spoken and the written) and in ALL places (meaning not just the "work force") that directly slam another person in an attacking and/or derogatory manner (commonly known as an ASSAULT)...will clearly be LAWSUIT substance! I would suppose that would also turn those that dwell in the same arena as where the injustice was committed...

......into WITNESSES too! *S*
