Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

You have the right to free speech.

And they have the right to refuse service.

Friends, again, I feel compelled to point out that your right to free speech does not include the right to force others to support your right.

It would seem that a ShopRite decided that they didn't want to make a birthday cake that spelled out three-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell's full name. They similarly had refused on previous occasions to make a cake with a swastika on it for them.

That's okay-- Wal Mart was happy to oblige them. Before y'all all jump on the boycott bandwagon, remember that ol' Sam Walton probably put out a dictum before he passed on, to the effect of "Don't you dare let a paying customer leave unshucked, just because of a stupid-assed name."

Good on ShopRite. Okay on Wal Mart. A pox on the idjit Campbells.

Freedom of speech is important. It's easier to spot the Ass-hats that way.

You're about the only one not to trash Wal-Mart over this. Such assholes as his parents may be, I'm glad the kid got his birthday cake. (Not that a store-bought birthday cake is by any means a necessity.)

One would think that two such fine specimens of the Master Race would be able to decorate their own birthday cake, complete with the Hitler Jugend cake-server.

The boy's sister is named after Himmler.

Sometime about forty years in the future: "Mom, Dad, sis and I have been talking. We just can't provide the care you need anymore so we've decided to put you both in a camp...I mean a home."
