First Amendment Flush

Not that this sort of thing is unheard of, but it's always good to bring attention to Rights violations. Note that the city uses something reasonable sounding like a "sign code" to urinate all over the Bill of Rights. Such an ordinance blatantly violates the First Amdendment, but everyone accepts it as par for the course, and no one gets too upset.

If it goes to court, some Constitution-violating precedent will be cited if they decide to take the city's side (which I anticipate if it gets that far.)

Would you like your neighbor painting slogans all over their house? Me neither, probably. Then again, the Libertarian in me might rejoice, despite the ugliness.

Since no one cares about this, and no one cared when they declared free-speech blackout dates, will anyone care when they say it's hate speech to say that Jesus is the living Son of God?
