    Looks to me like a good place to organize a massive Tea Party.

    I wouldn't worry about this at all. In a town that small, the city council are probably not the most enlightened crew. I doubt they have even read the rules (i.e., the Constitution).

    Ideas like these won't get a foothold in the "market place of ideas."

    Persecution for the expression of opinions seems to me perfectly logical. If you have no doubt of your premises or your power and want a certain result with all your heart you naturally express your wishes in law and sweep away all opposition...But when men have realized that time has upset many fighting faiths, they may come to believe even more than they believe the very foundations of their own conduct that the ultimate good desired is better reached by free trade in ideas...that the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market, and that truth is the only ground upon which their wishes safely can be carried out. That at any rate is the theory of our Constitution. - Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.'s dissenting opinion in Abrams v. United States

    I believe the intelligent and educated voters in Gould, AR, have voted into office the people they want to represent them. In fact, I think most of the members on the City Council have relocated to Gould, AR, from the City of Detroit. Misery loves company.

    Where is Kwame Kilpatrick? This city needs a new governor who can rise to the level of stupidity of the City Council.

    Let us, for a moment, forgo the US Constitution and look to a more immediate Constitution. The Constitution of the State of Arkansas, Article 2, sections quoted:
    And finally:
    So this little township council is in direct violation of the State Constitutional laws, and the smart Mayor sues the garbanzo beans out of them in State Court, especially if there are any arrests in support of this "Law" passed by this "Council".

    All it took for "Me" was to listen to that IDIOT Council Member, trying explain the councils reason for enacting this idiot law... She is on a POWER TRIP, and needs to be thrown out of office, along with ALL her Council Buddies.

    Well, I took a few minutes and abtained the phone number for the Mayor of Gould, Arkansas, as well as the names of all the council people. Then I made an effort to call the Mayor. I only got his voicemail, but then he may be screening calls and may be getting alot of unwelcome calls as well. I told him I supported his position and that I felt the city council had greatly exceeded their authority not only under the US Constitution, but the Arkansas Constitution as well. I left my name, phone number and email, and asked him to call me to further discuss this issue.
    Since There is a Tea Party rally tonight in a few hours here locally that I plan on attending, I told him that, and he could call me back tomorrow as my time was of a premium. Maybe he will call, maybe he won't. It don't hurt a bit to get involved and offer assistance. ..... even if it's only over the phone or via computer.
    PM me if you would like to offer constructive advice to the Mayor with his problem. I will provide his name number and email address as well as the names of the council people.

    Pretty much this. The council is just begging for lawsuits by doing this.

    I wonder if there is a protocol in place there to impeach the City Council, for violating the Civil Rights of ALL city residents?
    If there are any arrests due to this, the council had better have DEEP pockets - that town is on the road to going broke.

    Those city council members can move to Washington State, (or California for that matter) where we have plenty of liberal positions where that idiotic mindset will be more than welcome. Unfortunately.

    It seems like this is not a mentality solely based in the South.

    If I were that Mayor, I would call the national guard in to have those commies dragged out and arrested. They are testing the waters in different parts of the country to see how people respond.
    The response should be Alex Jones up there with a bull horn in their faces.
