    We know how you people feel about fly-over country. It's been understood for 20 years.

And to insinuate it is "suppressing" his freedom of speech does nothing but suggest to me that you've never actually had your freedom of speech suppressed and wouldn't recognize it if you did.
    I find it to be poetic justice that he uses coat hangers for an anti-abortion message.

    Just as long as it's understood.

    They are free to do what they want, but everyone else is also free to stop doing business with them. I know I would.

    Okay. Which has what, exactly, to do with the notion I'm "suppressing" his freedom of speech by expressing my own?

    Classy.

    This reminds me of my recent bus excursion to Texas. All over the place in the American hinterland there are farm houses and water towers with gaudy anti-abortion messages plastered all about them, usually done up in annoying colours and occasionally misspelled. They remind me of Las Vegas, for some reason.
    Its a new business advertized in the WSJ... selling advertizing on drying cleaning.. Its free to the dry cleaners. You can advertize anything you choose... But, who reads their drying cleaning?

    The extreme right like to use the argument that anyone who disagree's with their opinion is suppressing their freedom of speech by speaking out against it. That is a whole lot easier than defending their positions.

    Of course you don't. That's because you've never had to live in a time where women died from coathangers being shoved into their vaginas.
