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:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
