What do you guys think?
Should this billboard have remained in place?

Is this freedom of speech or slander?

(Personally I think Obama and all high level politicians are NWO.)

Personally, I think it was about 8 years too late.

Should this billboard have remained in place?

Only is families took the time to discuss the issue beyond the shock value.

Is this freedom of speech or slander?

Billboards are not freedom of speech, in fact I cannot avoid seeing them. They are a personal attack on my ability to choose what I view in this world.

So, theoretically, if someone wore a t-shirt in public with the same message, that would also be an attack on your choices as well?

While I understand your position it is not the same. A t-shirt is not in the periphery of my view pouring messaging into my subconscious while I drive down the road, focusing on driving safely.

I'll agree with that.

I guess there's a fine line between what's an acceptable public display and what isn't.

So, while you (perhaps) agree with the billboard, you'd rather not have it shoved in your face. Understandable.

Now it's perfectly clear.
The change we were supposed to believe in actually means that dissent is no longer patriotic.

I'm glad this billboard was removed. If Atheist can't have their billboard up without being attacked by Christians. Then Tea Parties shouldn't have this Faux billboard.

This. And anyone with half a brain should realize that was slander...if anything, it makes the Tea Party guys look even more retarded they already do.

I say let anyone have any billboard they want (insulting religion, atheism, political, etc.), as long as it doesn't directly threaten someone (like saying a group or religion should die or something) or cause danger (like saying the area is radioactive up ahead when it's really not and it causes an accident when people freak out trying to get off the next exit).

I mean, South Park is legal. . . and it should be!

Well, this really isn't a freedom of speech issue per se. They paid to put it up and they chose to take it down, saying it was "...a bad decision that reflected poorly on the organization."

I couldn't agree with them more.

It was a very bad, childish, and unthinking decision that said far more about the people whose minds would even go to a place like this. Its unintended statement spoke volumes more about them both as individuals and as an organization.

I'd venture to say most of us can take a pretty good guess at which subfaction of the tea party was responsible.

Maybe they're finally realizing that Americans are sick of this infantile, partisan drivel, and that the party these displaced neocon supporters are hijacking isn't going to stand for it either.

I welcome these kinds of billboards and articles and posts in a way, because they show true colors...true colors that many people are finally waking up enough to see.

The TP might have been a good movement right when it came out, because quite frankly, the 2 party system in the US sucks.

However, once retards like Palin took over the movement, it turned into a racist/bigot/retard movement. Sad really...

i think its funny that a poster actually went so far off as to say he didnt want messages being pumped into his subconscious while hes trying to drive safely.

really? piss off lol.

while i wouldnt be so hasty as to compare Obama to Hitler and Stalin, i will say that the 'right' needs to quit blaming the 'left' and vice versa.

all this fabricated discourse is, in my opinion, to simply give play to the illusion of power we (taxpayers, voters) have in America.

the 'NWO' does not claim left or right, they simply divide and conquer. and thats precisely what this is.

Absolutely should remain in place. It's political opinion.
As long a the lease on the billboard was paid in full.
There's no nudity, vulgarity, or threatening language.
Classic 1st amendment stuff.....Way cool.

Many of you will call this childish, but I made this video 2 years ago when i noticed more and more people trying to expose Obama as a Socialist.

(I don't favor Capitalism over Socialism or Communism... these systems are only a good as the people who are running - or ruining - them.

Call it slander. Personally I don't care about Obama's career.

It's good for a chuckle if nothing else:

I disagree with the billboard message but think it should have stayed. Bush was so much easier to condemn. For some reason he never had his rivals executed.

Having "Radical Leaders Prey on the Fearful & Naive" directly above "Live Free or Die!" seems pretty stupid. Aren't they creating their own fearmongering?
