    No just the state officials...and to point out...the Republican Lt. Gov of the state said the act was inappropriate.

    You seem to have the ignorant position. You apparently think the 1st Amendment is some blank check for someone to exercise their speech and that somehow overrides other's right to in turn exercise their speech and petition/boycott/criticize etc.

    Not sure about the gibberish at the end.
    No you don't understand the First Amendment!

    There is no ****ing amendment that states "If I'm offended all civil liberties are suspended."

    Did your mom ever tell you to treat others how you wish to be treated? did you misconstrued that **** with "anyone who offends me should be banned?"

    Meanwhile, while we debate the merits of a rodeo clown mask that looks like a president, all hell is breaking loose in Egypt and we've made nary a comment about it today.

    They've got us where they want us.

    No, if I get on a radio program and tell you to go murder progressives it does (not because of free speech but because I commanded you to murder and you did it) - I would be held responsible for that, but if I put a mask on and ran around like a clown while mocking Obama it would be protected.

    The very nature of what this clown did is why our First Amendment exists - to prevent persecution and allow individuals to freely state grievances. The simple fact this is being deputed tells me how ignorant our society actually is - that or people are extremely partisan to the point of throwing civil liberties out the window because they're totalitarian nuts....

    Like anyone cares about that...

    Progressives are too busy worshiping Obama like he's Jesus hence dissent is a no-no.

    That may have been what they wanted to convey, but the aftermath of this situation is anything but apolitical. They might as well not have a rodeo at all next year.

    Maybe..and if the PBR? (or is that just bull riders) decides that they won't participate in places that want to remain apolitical they have a right to do that as well.
