In a brave bold move President Barack Obama in what many are calling the pinnacle of the without question greatest president in modern times, has issued an executive order for common sense limits on assault speech. The president in a White House press conference stated the time is now at hand for common sense limits on dangerous speech, as well as hostile words.
More people have been killed with words and their hateful and dangerous meanings in our country, and since republicans in congress is the party of no, and refuse to do their jobs and take action, that he had no choice than to save American lives, and especially the poor who are at risk and more vulnerable to so much abuse looking down the barrel of loaded hate speech.
Wars across the centuries can be directly linked to the misuse of words, and due to the free use of unregulated speech has led to the death of millions. Can’t we as a people now do better.
From this day forward the public will now be completely safe, and free from fear that they will be assaulted by a senseless hail of bad words. I hereby order that a limit of no more than ten words be loaded into any conversation at one time, obviously limiting the possible damage done by an assailant or the mentally ill.
A waiting list of two weeks will now be standard before possibly hazardous words can be obtained to allow a cooling off period.
A new federal database of violent users of dangerous words, as well as those deemed mentally ill and have harmed others with words, or have been deemed likely to injure others with hostile or improper language.
While admitting that these steps won’t stop the killing attributed to hate speech, its a first step amount many to come to limit those hurt by ill placed words.
The ACLU has issued a statement that they support these common sense limits on dangerous speech and that the unlimited use of careless and hostile language has no place in modern civilized society. their spokesperson said that the first amendment was intended for government, militia, and groups, and that our founding fathers never intended unfettered word ownership or use for individuals.
The initial media response has been hugely positive with all four national networks applauding Obamas limits on speech, with even some saying he didn’t go far enough and that all words should be banned so the world would be a safer place. We owe it to future generations. CNN released a statement saying this move by the president places him on the path to assured best president status, with one anchor saying is Mount Rushmore full we have another one.
This is a satire. Feel free to insert other constitutional non infringe-able right.
