OK then. I'll just go naked.

When did wearing a T-shirt become a crime? I thought the Supreme Court of the US considers a test of weather or not a statement is free speech would be if it could be printed on a T-shirt. Doesn't that then make the T-shirt itself a protected form of free speech. More protected then vocal speech. After all, I can't yell 'FIRE' in a crowded movie theater but I can wear a T-shirt with those four letters printed on it. As it turns out a free citizen of the United States of America can not wear a T-shirt with a number printed on it while sitting in the Capital Building. What happened to Free Speech? What happened to the Right to Petetion our Government for Redress of Greivences? What happened to our right to simply sit quietly wearing a T-shirt? Chilling effects are all around us.
