WBC. Picketing funerals... my right to have a private ceremony. MY right to have quiet and peace around as I'm put in the ground. Spc Jaded Plunk's right to be respected for his service and sacrifice for our nation. WBC's right to disagree, to despise, and to spread their message.
Can't there be a line drawn when the person holding that sign that says, "DIE, SOLDIER! DIE!" All the while, screaming that we are going to hell, that we should all be burned alive, et cetera, due to the fact it infringes on MY (personal/human) rights to not be antagonized, not to be threatened, not to be provoked?
Freedom of speech. My right to take my children to the park, we pay taxes to fund it too. Your right to go to the park too.
Is there a place to draw the line where the toddler portion of the playground isn't filled with the sound of a mother cussing her child, threatening someone over the phone, then yelling curse words across the playground at the 4yo that it's time to go, so my 2 yr old is not only exposed to the cussing, but has the potential to repeat those words, and likely my child will be put through school with those children?
We choose to live in a quiet neighborhood, your choice to have a "bumpin' system" in your trunk.
Where is the line drawn that I no longer have to be woken up at 3am when you come strolling home, making it a point to drive -3mph so we can all hear your bass? So that my children are woken up, my elderly neighbor can't fall back asleep, and I get to listen to my ears ring and chest rattle for the next hour?
Rights were only intended to be exercised to the extent they did not infringe on another's rights.

Why should it be allowed in the REAL world if it isn't even acceptable for the most part in a cyber one?

Drawing lines on the COTUS is a slippery slope. Anyone is entitled to say anything they'd like to me and i'm entitled to agree or disagree. The more we allow ourselves to be nannied the more freedom we give up, which i find far more offensive than an irritating poster made by an ignorant, hateful bunch of asswipes.
