Keep your filth inside your car

Freedom of speech is one of the great things about our country and I fully support it. True, not always fond of it, but support it. Case in point: I feel if a person wants to sing, if you want to call it that, about how big his thing is great; wanna use vulgar and disgraceful, disgusting, hateful and downright degrading words to describe women, who am I to say you can’t? If you think making a CD describing how you’re raping women in front of your buddies while they drink 40s is cool, whatever.

I, myself, find this disgusting and completely without a doubt the most useless and wasteful use of a good CD. This is why I don’t buy them, listen to stations that play them and do whatever I can not to support this type of behavior and find it offensive and wish it didn’t exist. But as Americans I respect the right of others to produce, sell, promote, and spread their filth as they see fit.

All I ask is that people respect my rights in the same fashion. Wanna buy that killer stereo for your rig? Great, support the economy. Wanna listen to that filth and garbage? Cool, have at it. But for God’s sake when you’re sitting at a stoplight, wind your windows up, because I don’t care how big you think it is, I refuse to treat women like trash and find it totally disgusting you would think raping a women in front of your friends while they’re drinking 40s is cool.
