Improper Signage

Okay, I fully support Jim Roos's fight to protect both property rights and freedom of speech. That said, I have a problem with this sign:

Mr. Roos appears to have fallen prey to a graphical form of over-negation. A red circle with diagonal slash means "stop or oppose the thing inside the circle." Does Roos really want us to stop ending eminent domain abuse?

Roos doesn't consider this negation, just etxra emphasis:

"That, Roos counters, is part of the message. 'We're saying emphatically, No,' he said."

Yeah. Lame excuse, IMHO.
