Supreme Court says the government cannot refuse disparaging trademarks.
The ruling Monday is a win for an Asian-American rock band called the Slants and it gives a major boost to the Washington Redskins in their separate legal fight over the team name.
Honestly speaking, I find this whole thing so silly. It is a good example of "baizuoism."

If an Asian-American rock group wants to register a trademark calling themselves, "The Slants", what's wrong with that? Because of leftist miseducation by liberal professors in your universities, you have taken political correctness to ridiculous levels.

Self-confident people can laugh at themselves and don't get angry when they get insulted. They just shrug it off. It is the failures that become thin skinned. The super failures (you know who) are the ones who get violent at the slightest.

Yes, cass, as a regular reader of your posts over the years, I know exactly to whom you are referring. It's interesting to reflect on how accomplished folks in now-Muslim lands were before Islam arrived - Sumer, Egypt, Persia, and, yes, the Srivijaya kingdom.

Islam does have a debilitating effect. Egypt was the breadbasket of the Roman empire. Today, it is a basket case. They are all basket cases.
