CameraMonkey: whereas the ACLU tends to pick and choose their battles based on their ideology. I can vaguely recall a few cases leaning to the conservative side that they opted not to fight. So no, the ACLU is not some magical even handed organization.
theknuckler_33: As a huge fan of freedom of speech, I really hate douchebags. It is quite a conundrum.
AverageAmericanGuy: If the FCC can regulate what can be broadcast, local townships can certainly regulate signage.
mafiageek1980: God, I love the ACLU! This chick has my FULL support!/fark Livingston Parish and Denham Springs//Denham Springs High school, class of '99///Glad I got out when I did!
tjfly: Insulting religions to insult religions is just assholish.For all you that think this is funny, go light a bunch of Korans on fire in the shape of a penis. Hysterical.
susler: 4tehsnowflakes:Both orgs are political in the sense that they advocate public policy positions and evaluate politicians based on the politician's sympathy for the organization's core values. Both are principled in the sense that (despite the political affiliation of most of their members) they will cross party lines to advocate for their issues. Examples: NRA endorses mainly R's but will endorse a D with a record of support for 2nd Amdt rights over an R with no such record or a weak record.I agree with those who said ACLU is a little bit hypocritical for not embracing all individual constitutional rights and liberties. ACLU does not advocate or litigate for certain constitutional rights such as 2nd Amdt and property rights. .1. The ACLU does not endorse political candidates.2. Perhaps, like every other organization in the country, they allocate scarce dollars where they'll do the most good. It's not like there's a large extremely well funded organization already dedicated to ensuring that 2nd Amendment rights are not abridged. I don't see a lot of money on a national level dedicated to being certain that every asshole who wants to can put their holiday lights in the shape of the finger on their roof.
ongbok: Yes they can. Put up a giant sign that say fark in your front lawn and see what happens. It is called obscenity laws.
DrVoice: The ACLU is much more consistent about their mission than, say, the NRA.
Mikey1969: It's part of your agreement when you get the broadcast license.
JacksonBryan: Sock Ruh Tease: People are still offended by the middle finger?This, it's not like it was a cross or something.
UseLessHuman: I see a prominently displayed cross or other religious symbol all I see is a big middle finger in my face
fusillade762: The thumbed nose, the projected middle finger, the Bronx cheer[www.allhatnocattle.net image 252x342]What's this one called?
