Enough already...

Protest is a fundamental right. Yet, there comes a time when it becomes counterproductive in garnering positive awareness and support.

Our Town Green is a beautiful spot, for fun and photography.  It's fairly unique in the area. 

Yet, for well over a year, on an almost daily basis, there's been a huge truck, plastered in protest, parked in front of the Town Hall.

Added to this, we then have this vehicle circling the Green blaring the music of our Armed Services.  This music has been co-opted, and while it's probably public domain, I think it's being seriously misused.

Added to this is the fact that the vast majority of recipients of this audio/visual display have zero connection with Town Hall, apart from some folks being tax payers, and fellow citizens.

Respectfully, isn't it time to bring this chapter of free speech to a close?

America is a wonderful place to live... we can agree to disagree and still respect one another's choices. BTW... I love the sound of Church bells. I think they should be rung more often (daily) to remind people that Churches, regardless of their denomination, are a place of worship and answer to a higher power. Amen.

The display has long since overshadowed and obscured whatever issues may have been worth exploring. It has become a fixated parody, well past a reasoned protest respecting the rights we all share.

As long as Town Hall remains corrupt, the trailer is going nowhere.

I too am sick and tired of the truck blaring the music. I understand your reasoning but when you are targeting town hall the rest of us have to suffer too.
