  • Hanging of 'Truck Nuts' Grows into a Free Speech Debate

    My question is, why would a 65 year old woman feel the need to hang truck nuts from the back of her truck? I've always seen them as a sign that someone has a complex. Personally I hope the good chief wins this one.

    What say you? Are truck nuts witty and a symbol of confidence on the part of the owner? Or, do you think they are downright obscene, tasteless, and a pretty sure indicator that the fella behind the wheel is a bit lacking in certain measures of charm and ability?

        Florida, Virginia, and Maryland have all tried to pass legislation making these things illegal or subject to a fine if displayed.

        Sure they are lame, but I don't think they should be illegal. If you want to clearly state that you are a dumbass it benefits all of us to know that.

                      I didn't vote because I don't think they inspire confidence, nor are they tasteless. I think the general population of this country are prudes that try to censor and/or ban every little thing they can. If I wanna hang nuts from my truck I will. And I'll have arts & crafts time and make 'em look real beforehand...because I can. Muaaah ha ha ha!

                        The blue ones, I understand....other colors/finishes, I'm not so sure about.

                        But they don't hurt me, either way.

                          To each their own. Not for me just like the big fart cans on honduhs. Just not for me. I don't think its really anyones place to say you can't do that to your personal vehicle.
