Check out Aljazeera.Net for an article that says Clear Channel is in a Manhattan Court trying to stop Project Billboard from posting an antiwar billboard in NYC Times Square during the Republican Convention on a billboard that they leased from Clear Channel. The billboard depicts a flag draped bomb and the message "Democracy is best taught by example- not by war". Looks to become a campaign issue as Clear Channel is a major supporter of Republicans and is objecting to this display more vehemently that they objected to the Dixie Chicks. Ain't it awful!! If you want to know what's going on in your own country you have to tune in the opposition!!

Well thats the problem with free speech, sometimes you won't like what other have to say. Considering that they won't allow people to protest I think that if they want to put a billboard up to protest the war, and if they are paying for the right to do it, then they should be allowed to.
I'm glad that I dont live in NYC or Boston during the conventions, both cities are going to be shut down. They're damn near declaring martial law in those cities. The GOP convention is going to be guarded by over 10,000 policemen, nearly every street withing blocks of both conventions will be closed. They're even closing part of the Boston Harbor.

Is America a democracy? Strange.
1) Your freedom of speech is being taken away.
2) Your President is a dictator.
3) Your constitution is being rewritten/anulled.
Yeah....America is a lovely democracy.
