Bush Thought Police Alive & Well In Georgia

Every day we are treated to new and scary ways that the powers-that-be try and make the America our founders died for unrecognizable.

According to the following AP story, a Georgia woman faces a fine for an allegedly lewd bumper sticker:

"Denise Grier, 47, of Athens was recently pulled over in suburban Atlanta's DeKalb County where she works as a nurse when a police officer spotted her bumper sticker that reads: 'I'm Tired Of All The BUSHIT.'

"The officer who stopped her thought it was lewd, and she was cited for violating a state law prohibiting lewd or profane stickers and decals on vehicles."

There is no such word as 'bushit,' so how would this ever even pass the most minimal of court tests for alleged lewdness? Still, the ACLU is stepping in on the woman's behalf.

Apparently, the 4th Amendment isn't enough, Bushies want to take away our 1st Amendment rights as well.
