Visit WND's online Impeachment Store to see all the products related to ousting Obama.

Remember, impeachment is something that only Democrats are talking about.

They passed a viewpoint-neutral ordinance about gathering on or near overpasses and other parts of roadways in response to a protest concerning the GWBush Library. This is clearly viewpoint discrimination against people who stand on overpasses and try to grab drivers' attention shaking big anti-Obama signs.

FTFA: Overpasses for America is a nonpartisan grassroots effort calling the nation's leaders to accountability. It uses pedestrian overpasses to spread its messages.

Well, liberal vs. conservative technically isn't partisanship, despite the practical truth of the matter.

Hovering over the link gives you everything you need to know about the "article" / book advertisement: "dallas-stifles-impeach-obama-protestors"

OK, I'm totally guessing on the book advertisement bit.  But I'd be willing to bet a damn sight I'm right...

Don't think of it as spam email.  Think of it as an advertisement of their abilities.
That cousin or uncle who keeps talking about that dirty n***r in the White House?  Donate 5 dollars - and give them his *email*.

Better yet, give his address to some Hillary Clinton PAC.  My boss got a Christmas card from her and Bill one year.

Oh man.

I would, but holy hell, the Democrats spam the ever loving fark out of you asking for money.

Granted, I have a spam address that gets loads of spam full of half truths and bullshiat from the Speaker of the House email, but amazingly no GOP fundraiser spam.  My mother tells me they do spam her husband though, a lot.

Exactly, plus having to concentrate avoiding the downtown Beirut size potholes due to lack of infrastructure maintenance in our "world-class city".

THIS RIGHT HERE is the funniest farking thing I've seen all day.  I'm in the wrong line of work.  Reinforcing morons' existing beliefs has proven insanely profitable for years, but I've always thought it must just be too boring and predictable to cancel out the sliminess... the people who make this kind of stuff prove that it can be downright amusing as well, and that might be just enough
 
2014-08-15 04:58:29 PM  
FTRA: "The group held a demonstration March 1 on the Northaven overpass over the Dallas North Tollway, but when volunteers called to make arrangements for March 15, they were told police would enforce the speech ban."

That is farking impossible... as North Haven doesn't have an overpass over the North Dallas Tollway.  North Haven runs between I-75 "Central Expressway" and Hillcrest... it doesn't cross or even get within 2 miles of the Tollway.

the protest they are talking about was going to be at Northwest Highway(loop 12) and the North Dallas Tollway.
and given how monumentally busy the traffic is across that bridge and what the terrain looks like... it would be really unsafe for everyone involved from Teatards , to Cops to bystanders to have a bunch of sub literate morons congregating up on that bridge.

I know. Burger King sells burgers, Panda Express sells panda, Taco Bell sells tacos, Kentucky Fried Chicken sells chicken, McDonald's sells clown, Pizza Hut sells pizza. The least an impeachment store could do is sell impeachment.

Which does not involve protesting in certain locations where it is deemed that they are a hazard to others. They aren't saying they can't protest, just that nobody can protest in certain areas.

They passed a viewpoint-neutral ordinance about gathering on or near overpasses and other parts of roadways in response to a protest concerning the GWBush Library. This is clearly viewpoint discrimination against people who stand on overpasses and try to grab drivers' attention shaking big anti-Obama signs.


Remember. The great thing about the SCOTUS decision in the abortion protest law was that the SCOTUS said that Free Speech implied a right to be heard. Isn't that wonderful? Insanely wonderful.

they don't however, have a right to obstruct or play in traffic.  which again as I've mentioned is basically what they would be doing.  the overpasses don't have wide enough sidewalks to accommodate groups of pedestrians milling about.
