Suck It Up, Cupcake
That inconvenient 1st Amendment

Billboard on US 41 - Wisconsin.


Yep, the whining begins. Case in point;
Depending on the political persuasion of the person doing the looking, the now familiar "Obama billboard" next to the Oshkosh Correctional Institution on U.S. 41 might be an honest and brave expression of frustration by a democratic citizenry. Or a baseless and unpatriotic attack on America's leader.

To other observers, the sign is merely the latest example of rancor and unrest pervading the nation's political system by individuals and organizations exercising free-speech rights.

"You have this saturation of bile … and a toxic stew of lies. I think it's completely out of control and disgusting," said Joel Rogers, a professor of law, political science and philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Any takers on if the good professor said the same in defense Dubya?

Anyone??

No to being a taker.

& a definite no on his saying the same in defence of Dubya. In fact, I wouldn't be surprized if he supported Bush being impeached.

I liked the bumper sticker that said, "I'll give your president the same respect you gave mine."

Great location! That's the stretch of miles between Oshkosh and Appleton - where the prison and the landfill sit right next to each other (you can see the prison tower in in the photo.) Seems fitting.
