  1. when someone else can tell you what you can and cannot do on your own property, it's no longer the Land of the Free.

  2. That old man is fucking gross. Stopping a growing business and jobs because fucking hippies don't want to grow up. I'll make sure I rev bomb the fuck out of that neighborhood when I drive through it from now on.

  3. I use to live in New shit Mexico. Nobody walked the sidewalks except bums and druggies, they are just because control freaks.

  4. What makes this town any special? Same can be said about this idiot. They have the right to buy property and build their establishment. And what the city council did was UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
