First Amendment Trumps DMV's Good Taste and Decency Vanity Plates Rule


With its one party rule, high taxes, homelessness, needles and feces in our streets it’s no longer the Golden State
Iron Pyrite would be better with high housing, clogged freeways, and a DMV one loves to hate
Can’t address the other woes in this complaining rhyme
But finally for common sense on vanity plates it is now time
A judge has ruled the DMV’s banning certain vanity plate names
Is a violation of the 1st Amendment and by injunction has the DMV tamed
Allowing a DMV bureaucrat the right to ban vanities not in “decency or good taste”
Not allowed so now “Queer”, “SLAYRR” and OGWOOLF may on vanities be placed
Think of the time saved so DMV employees are not over foreign, slang and domestic dictionaries slaving
In their vane and time consuming attempts to from public “bad taste and indecency” saving
