Mason City, IA now displays a billboard paid for by a group called Concerned Citizens. Billboard questions country's direction
MASON CITY — A billboard on the 600 block of South Federal Avenue berates the Obama administration in a manner that has offended some who have seen it.But not everyone is happy. Someone got their panties in a bind:
Mark Tlusty, who helped organize the “Tea Party” anti-tax protest in Central Park in April, said, “We’re just getting upset at how the government is running things. We wanted to express ourselves and chose this way to do it.”
Kathleen Wild of Mason City contacted the Globe Gazette to express her concerns after seeing the billboard.Last time I checked we live in a nation of Free Speech. (At least it's supposed to be.) I'm guessing Kathleen's version of Mason City has no diversity of thought. Irony, anyone?
“I think it’s a terrible thing to have above Mason City, which is a city of diversity,” she said.
