I believe the owner said he would not actually tow anyone who parked there with an Obama sticker. Personally, the owner of the lot strikes me as a putz who is best ignored. I imagine that Gibsonville isn't the sort of place where parking is hard to come by, I'd simply take my business elsewhere if I lived there.

A private owner can do whatever he wants. This is not a race issue. On the other hand, when Obama Hussein bans signs at this rallys like this:

Bild: Barack Obama Bans Protest Signs in Berlin : NO QUARTER

...the media is silent.

That is why I could never support somebody like him. Elitist, hypocritical, lying, cheating, terrorist-loving Commie. And when asked in forums like this, his supporters cannot defend him. They cannot answer why Obama Hussein prohibits free speach in his quest to lead the last real free nation in the world.

He can refuse service all he wants.

Heck, if he so desired, he could have a sign that says "no red cars."

As long as the discrimination isn't based on race/sex/nationality/religion, he is free to discriminate to his hearts content.

Ok, now show me where you find the racism in the original posters link.

Please, show me. I don't see it.

The lot owner simply has a preference of who he is not allowing to park in his lot.

Stop trying to put something in that just isn't there and has no reason to be.

This is ridiculous.

Um, camera crews need to know what theyre photographing, so they dont photograph a sign that might say something like "Kill The N***** Tarerist." It's standard. Sarah Palin's campaign does this too

So, you're saying Sarah Palin is squelching your right to free "speach"? Wow.

Um, I was just at a rally for McCain and protestors had signs far worse than that. Nobody took them away. Nobody confiscated them. Nobody stepped on their freedom of speach.

No, but they stepped all over your freedom to learn how to spell.
