← Texas approves 'One State Under God' license plate

Stevehill's Avatar Jump to comment 40 by Stevehill

It's one of 130 speciality license plate types approved in Texas, for god's sake. So what?

What seems ludicrous to me is that the state has any role in approving of anyone's design. It would be perfectly possible to say that a license plate will have characters of a certain size and colour on a plate so big, on which there's a space to optionally put "your logo here", coupled with some provision against overt hate speech (no swastikas!).

Clearly you can put whatever sticker you like next to the plate. It's a meaningless discussion. Why is Texas employing people at taxpayers' expense even to consider this crap?
