    Des Moines store has a message for Secret Service...

    Does anyone else need a laugh this morning?

    Des Moines store has a message for Secret Service:



    to them for initially refusing to remove the sign; that they eventually conceded.

    I wonder under what coercive tactics they were forced to remove the sign.

    That is really funny though.

    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    So what happens if I owned a business within their "security zone?" Are my rights to be armed in my business now suspended? Or are they just making sure I don't have a masked guy in the attic with an RPG?

    My first thought was that it's probably illegal to employ Colombian prostitutes...

    I think that law enforcement and government agents have learned by now that coercive tactics can backfire big time....not everyone is a-scared of these guys...

    My guess is that they removed it before they closed for the day. You never know what Obummer supporters would do to your store (rocks, looting, etc) with the police a little less likely to investigate until it was all over and done with.
    If something is wrong for ONE person to do to another, it is still wrong if a BILLION people do it.

    That is a good point, I have seen destruction of peoples personal property because it ran contrary to their political beliefs.

    How about your right to be free of unreasonable search and seizure? Your right to freedom of speech?
