Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

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."
