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:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
