    No it's not a privately run parade, it's a city parade. If I'm wrong please tell me the private agency that organized it.

    Yes, the parades should be changed to be political so every political party, politician and political group from the KKK to the Tea Party to the Hillsboro Baptist Church, neo-Nazi and militia groups, gun rights activists, and of course Republican, Democrat, Green and Libertarian parties and candidates should be allowed to march in the parade.

    Really, children hate fun parades. They want to watch social and political activism.

    In short, of course they should not allow political groups to use the parade.

    Ancient Order of Hibernians runs the NYC parade and the Allied War Veterans Council of South Boston runs the Boston parade.

    I thought the same thing. No signage.

    I didn't deem ****. I gave my opinion. Is a Libertarian not allowed to give an opinion Deuce?

    You said they were stupid for caring about something you don't care about. A libertarian generally wouldn't call that stupid. So I thought it was odd.

    Sort of like "Undisclosed" deems to pitch for Obama defense at every turn? Pot meet kettle; those who live in glass houses... yadda yadda yadda.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    IE: Apples and oranges.
    Actually not apples and oranges. It's actually why Gays aren't allowed to march with "signage" in the St. Patrick's day parade because the State can't force AoH or any other organizer to do so. Another fun fact.. that cases was specifically about the Boston St. Patrick's Day parade.
