Freedom of speech

I'm sorry! I have to disagree with the person who applauds Southwest Airlines. I've seen a lot worse t-shirts than the one the lady was wearing. I applaud the lady who refused to cover up her shirt.

There is such a thing as freedom of speech, freedom of expression. If others were offended then they should not have looked at her shirt. Simple solution. If you look at kids and adults t-shirts these days there are a lot more offensive language and images on them. Look around you then throw stones if you must. Sheesh! The lady's t-shirt should be the least of their worries, with all the war and destruction going on all over.

Thank you and thanks for my freedom of speech!
