Freedom of Speech 

A young protestor was arrested in Pinnellas County Florida for holding a sign which read "Fuck Bush". Now I realize this is not the most articulate or intellectual way to oppose the Bush administration, but this is America and people still should have the right to say or hold signs, offensive or not.

The disturbing thing to me is that groups like Fred Phelps Westboro Baptist Church hold up and chant much more vile things and are offered protection from the police while this kid was arrested without warning.

The sign could have been confiscated or the officers could have asked the young man to put the sign away prior to an arrest being initiated.

I will be glad when we get patriotic God fearing conservatives out of our government, they are too dangerous to our constitutional rights.
