"What are they talking about? Bullwinkle?????"

It's not funny. Mooses can be very intimidating.

What if I paint a noose on my Oak tree? Is that a crime? I guess it is only a matter of time that "GALLOWS HILL ROAD" in Redding will have to be renamed to something politically correct. Maybe the American Revolution really didn`t happen & Putnam Park and its historic past will be taken out of modern American History Books to appease African Americans. If I`m not mistaken I believe a white revolutionary soldier was hanged for desertion on Gallows Hill Road.

I am going to start a rumor that Gallows Hill Rd. is so named because it was used to all the "lynchings" of African American scholars back in the 1950s in Redding...

all symbols of hate... better yet ANY symbol used to intimidate people should be banned!!!

nooses, swastikas etcetera..

crosses (if they're burning)

pentagrams (upsets christians)
fish (italian hate symbol from the godfather)

not much distance from true hate to trashing the first ammendment

This is what you will hear about, but not the no-bid contracts they give their buddies. Like when blumenthal gave his ex law partner 1/4 billion $$.
