    The problem then would be interpretation. All regulations can and are subject to interpretation by those who are charged with enforcement of them. They were able to cite him with these code violations because they defined his garage as a "church", with what seems to be no other valid reason for the definition except that religious discussions were taking place. They did not have to do that, they chose to. And hitting him with 67 code violations looks more like retaliation for challenging then actual code enforcement.

    Again, if the amount of vehicles creates issues in the neighborhood, then that could certainly be addressed without violating this man's property rights.

    Well this is why we have trial by a jury of peers.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    So if it was your neighbor they could be on loud speakers with 1,000 people milling about on the front lawn and you would be fine with that?

    Every week?

    His counter point is correct if not a tad callous...

    His counterpoint to what? Obama doesn't have weekly Bible meetings with 40 people at his house and the NAACP has meetings at arenas designated for such matters. And please don't start comparing campaign stops to this. You'll look hyperbolic at best and ridiculous at worst.

    Hey, if one on my neighbors had a wedding reception, a funeral gathering or even a Super Bowl party with 50 guests, I would loan them my folding tables.

    But if they did it EVERY week, we'd have some serious neighborly issues.

    A person would have to be a total retard to not catch it. The best part is that he'll complain and go "it's cause I'm a black conservative ain't it!" - as if Blackdog didn't exist. apdst is kind of like those white kids who pretend they're black when they're like 17 and listen to DMX. The only difference is that apdst is a grown man and still pretends for a far dumber reason. He knows if he voices his opinion as the white guy he is, he'll be called racist. So he pretends to be black in hopes we wont catch it.
