Michael Antonovich is a ‘Fucking’ Crackpot

AntonovichMike.jpgFrom AP:

Pay no attention to that eerie silence in the nation’s most populous county this week; it will simply be the sound of 10 million people not cussing.

At least that’s the result McKay Hatch is hoping for once his campaign to clear the air is recognized by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

On Tuesday, the board is scheduled to issue a proclamation by Supervisor Michael Antonovich making the first week in March No Cussing Week.

What is this Wisconsin?! Arkansas? Rural Texas? This is Los Angeles County. You know, the county of 10 million people where the poverty rate is 14.6%, two points above the national average. There are 80,000 homeless people – over 40,000 gang members – traffic problems comparable to third world conditions – ditto the air and Michael Antonovich and the county board of supervisors want to spend their time and our resources on declaring a week without foul language?!

That’s fucking obscene. And horribly offensive. Clean up the fucking graffiti before you moralize about which words you don’t prefer. Nero aspiring hack.
