Dirty words make it to the U.S. Supreme Court only occasionally. One of those occasions came Monday, in a case involving a clothing line named "F**T."

---- was apparently able to get a trademark, and that is quite close to profanity. What is a four letter profane word which begins with F and ends with T?

Never mind, read the article. The word is similar to ----...

French Connection United Kingdom probably skates by because it's an acronym.

Conservative prudes impeding freedom of speech, free enterprise and comedy. Its a clever name that would have been a hit with the younger set. The problem now is anybody can use it.

Profanity is a concept that has been left behind. Words shouldn't be considered profane while we assist the murdering Saudis who are killing civilians in Yemen on a daily basis. There was more mourning for Notre Dame, a building, than for the thousands who have been killed by Trump's buddies in Saudi Arabia. Our Supreme Court is a bunch of out of touch, irrelevant old people who should not have so much power and should be forced to retire at a reasonable age. They focus on cuss words.....really? Laughable.

So I guess you will be leading the charge to get RBG out?

Saw this one this morning...

What the f---? The f-word goes mainstream
www.axios.com

...Suddenly the f-word is everywhere: Two presidential candidates. A Supreme Court case. Bookstore bestsellers.

Why it matters: A casual, ever-coarser culture has embraced a word that once shocked, and now bores. The ultimate epithet is now everyday conversation. And we've lost a surefire device for cutting through life's white noise....



Surprisingly, at one point I was working in The Netherlands. It was not unusual to here the f-word spoken loudly during the course of regular conversation there. The first few times it sounded odd to me, after a while it became just another word.

#8 What kills me is how many of today's pop "artists" are making themselves "edgy" by dropping a few f-bombs in their lyrics. Whatever happened to good old-fashioned double entendres with accompanying power cords?

The president says ------------ and -------- and -------- in speeches.

Let's stop pretending we have to protect the innocent christians' earholes. They elected this antichrist.

fwiw, I've noticed that the radios stations have been slowly evolving in how they treat the f-bomb in lyrics.

For example, using the Jefferson Airplane - We Can Be Together song...

Back in the day, the entire 3rd and 4th syllables of ----------- was bleeped out. All you heard was mother[bleeeeeeeeeep].

Then, say, 20 or so years ago I heard it on the radio again. This time only the entire 3rd syllable was bleeped.

I heard it again a year or so ago, and a short middle portion of the 3rd syllable was bleeped. If you didn't know the song, you'd think that nothing was bleeped.

So we progress. Slowly, but we progress.

btw, all this talk about that Jefferson Airplane album, I had to dig it out from the uncharted depths of the spare bedroom, and put it on the turntable for a spin.

Still sounds good.

Oddly, the politics of the album still seem to mesh with today....

Wow !! This is so (not) important.

Have they decided women get equal pay yet?

I don't think they have. They are still being ----.

Yep. And as soon as they work the same jobs for the same numbers of hours, the cumulative numbers will reflect it. You know there's a law, right?
