    I never hesitate to call someone a dumbass, kids included! Take a punch at me and you will be taking a nap!

    Well they are cops. And we are not. As you need to show respect and dignity. Agree to disagree as they are the law! No matter what occurs.

    The law is the Bill Of Rights.

    I give police officers the finger everyday almost.

    Usually get one back as well.

    No freedom is absolute. Next time you're in court try flipping off the judge or yelling obscenities at him.

    Using polite language won't make anyone a better person, but the language you use does give people a specific first impression. While not always accurate, there are worse indicators.
    Okay, I'll start: "God," "Jesus," "Allah," etc.

    As for your "no freedom is absolute," I wonder what your stance was on gun laws was in those threads...or are we just picking and choosing out of convenience?

    They're still posted so you can go check if you're really wondering.

    Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you should. We have steadily lost our decorum in this country. I remember my dad taking me and my sister to this big softball tournament when we were kids. In the parking lot, some guys were drinking suds and getting rowdy like guys do. Well, when they dropped a few F bombs, my daddy went over and had a little chat with them. They apologized and were genuinely embarrased they got that far out of line.
    Nowadays, people dont think twice. So, i believe the guy had every right to flip the cop off. I just wish he had the common sense not to. There are better ways to express displeasure that arent so offensive to the public.

    Now on this forum, you guys get flipped off every day. Revel in it, because unless you let your kids read this stuff ( and what kid would want to willingly), we're all adults in a closed room here

    Absolutely. It's all about personal responsibility. You also have to deal with the consequences of your actions. You may have the right to flip someone off, but that won't stop them from doing what your dad did or even going as far as punching you in the face. It shouldn't, however, end up with you being in jail.

    Yes. If I dont like it, there obviously should be a law against it.
