Be Careful What You Ask For


Three or four years ago a Springfield, Missouri klavern of the Ku Klux Klan filed a lawsuit to force that great state to allow them to participate in the Adopt-A-Highway program. Not permitting them to do so, they argued, was a violation of their First Amendment Rights. Eventually, they won their case, since the Constitution does in fact provide the same protection to inbred knuckle-dragging brachycephalic fruitcake pond scum troglodytes Klan members that is granted to more rational citizens.

They were given their assignment in January; a two-mile section of the Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel Memorial Highway.

That's a 7-letter Deborah, never a Deb said...

In St. Louis the same thing happened, and the state eventually named that stretch of the Hwy, the Rosa Parks Memorial Hwy. Anyway, the KKK never did any cleanup and lost the sign.

Oh, the irony. Though I can just see one of the dimmer members saying something like, "Rabbi. That's a funny first name."

They all seem to know their 'rights,' don't they, and unhesitatingly try to use them against us...
