Burka Billboard Sparks Controversy
« on: November 04, 2013, 09:10:48 AM »

LOS ANGELES ( —A billboard put up Monday in Hollywood has sparked controversy on social media for its depiction of an American soldier and a Muslim woman.

The advertisement, which includes the simple phrase “#betogether”, is for a company called Snore Stop, which sells nasal sprays, oral sprays and pills aimed at preventing customers from snoring.

The Camarillo-based company says the idea behind the ad is that their product, which has been around for 18 years, keeps marriages together.

“It’s a shock factor…. Trying to shock you into looking at it. But to each their own,” onlooker Jan Clair said.

The reason Hollyweird was stunned is because they were "out-stunned" by someone creating something stranger than they create. :silly:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
