    And remember, the Kerry rallys allow Rethuglicans in with bullhorns....

    Oh yes, ONE solitary guy with a bullhorn. You should be proud.

    So the Bush people didn't want a pack of rabid, screaming libs disrupting their function. Booo hooo. I know I'm going to lose sleep over this one. If a candidate has a paid function, he has every right to limit access as he sees fit. If kerry had directed security to toss the guy with the bullhorn, you wouldn't hear me whining about it.

    Since you didn't provide a link, I couldn't check on my own, but is this written by the same Joan Collins who is the soft-porn star?

    It seems you are making excuses to a reported instance of our democracy being threatened. I don't feel any candidate deserves loyalty over one's loyalty to our democracy. I always thought the whole damn country was a free speech zone...

    I hope that woman is not a porn star...

    And it was more than one guy with a bullhorn. It was like a dozen people and some others had those aerosol horns you use on boats.

    Okay, then they should have been tossed out on their asses. No one has a right to come into a partisan function with the express intent of disrupting the proceedings. That's not free speech. That is merely a form of vandalism.

    Merlin if you sold tickets to your house without discrimination and then refused to let me in based on discrimination due to political views without a refund we would most definitely have a problem. Yes I understand there are necessary limits on free speech but it does not seem to me that this is one of them.

    Okay, I can see your point regarding the refund. If they were going to deny entry to the protesters, then the purchase price of the ticket should have been refunded. But then again we don't know, based on the information presented, if anyone attempted to get a refund or not.

    More than likely, the tickets were sold with a disclaimer stating that the price of the tickets were "political contributions" and therefore, non-refundable.

    That's probably true, so this is how I feel about them:
