Respect

When someone¬†thinks it is funny (why else would he have done it?) to urinate over a symbol of respect towards people who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, you know that we have gone beyond a joke. Seriously, what was going through his head? It’s not like he is the thickest of people… he does attend university! But he is definitely the most disrespectful. I must say I do agree with the judge… a prison sentence would not be fruitful (and a waste of taxpayers money) and a community sentence might teach him some respect. Mind you, 250 hours is only 6 weeks work, and for a student is not very long. Perhaps a longer sentence … but hopefully he will learn some respect.

Freedom of Speech

I thought that freedom of speech was a basic human right but apparently there are exceptions to every rule.

Rules have been passed against people saying what they think on T-shirts as it may cause annoyance or inconvenience to some people!

They will soon tell me that I am not allowed my Carper Diem on my blog as it might annoy or be inconvenient to some people.
