A Tea Party group is taking a Michigan city to federal court after it was banned from posting signs in a public park because they were deemed "too controversial."
Don't agree with what they're saying? Ban it. So much for the first amendment....

Michigan Tea Party Sues Over Sign Ban
Are they banning signs from public places or are they banning people from carrying signs? I see nothing wrong with banning stand alone signs in public places. What if a company wanted to set up ads all over a park or a library? However they don't have a right to ban people from carrying signs or exercising their 1st amendment.

How offensive were the signs by the way? Did they us the n word like their previous signs?

For those who have a hard time reading the content before they make ignorant comments.

They likely would have allowed them if a tea party member could actually learn how to spell.

Tea Party members on average are better educated than Democrats, what does that say about the left and less educated side of the isle?

Define educated? Having a degree? Perhaps they hold more degrees, but they certainly have a problem with spelling and reading comprehension.

Today, the freedom of speech is not free if you do not wield money or power.

Pathetic overreach of authority.

Toss them out.

Simple. Go to another park or avert your gaze.

"no more taxes" is racist?
