So, who decides?

I just caught a short glimps of a re-run of "Designing Women." In it, a news stand just up the street started selling pornographic materials. They had a large poster of a woman in leather and chains as an advertisement. The leader of "Designing Women" took offense and ran over it with her car. Once the newstand owner realized this, he asked, "Who made you the decider of what is inappropriate?" (or something like that).
I though of a response: "The same power that made you the decider of what is appropriate."
So, if someone decides that it is appropriate to display something in my face, such as burning the flag, pornography, or something else that I do not wish to have forced on me, shouldn't I be able to respond to that force? Also, with force?

Just a thought.
