"I'm a 'bitter' gun owner and I vote" sign in my Clinton supporter neighbors' yard!!
All through the primaries, they had a Hillary sign.
I just walked my dog and passed this new sign about gun ownership:
"I'm a 'bitter' gun owner and I vote!"
I wanted to puke.
This is in a middle class neighborhood in the city of Pittsburgh!
How the hell these people think that they are a part of the decimated, embittered, rural areas of America that Obama was talking about is beyond me.
Sorry, but when there is a Whole Foods, a Trader Joe's, four post offices, two Starbucks and a three sushi restaurants within a fifteen minute walk from your house....guess what???
You are not small town America!
You are not living in a depressed, rural setting!
Damn it, its weird how angry this makes me. Its not a McCain sign. Its an anti-Obama sign.
Just needed to vent.
Maybe I'll stop picking up my dog's turds when she wanders into that particular yard. Then again, I may get shot.
Think any of the DUmmies will suggest the OP respect it's neighbors free speech by not retaliating or vandalizing their property? Nah... they're DUmmies.

5. I think you are right.
I just hate to see it on our street, a street that has been so optimistically pro-Obama. I was a neighborhood captain for Obama during the primary and this ward had so many eager volunteers, there were house parties for undecided voters and just a general buzz on the streets.
Like I said, it would be one thing to simply advertise support of McCain. This sign is blatantly disingenuous and just a big ole downer.:eek:1Hippiechick (1000+ posts) Thu Sep-04-08 08:31 PM

debate w/me. He's a REPUKE (must have dropped him on his head when he was a baby)and said that I am one of the "white voters with white guilt who is voting for Obama because he is black."
Ya know, as much as I love my son, I almost slugged him! (And almost told him to go back to northern Virginia!)
He has DEFINITELY not only drunk the Kool-Aid, he got an IV.
His response about 4 more years of Bush? "I don't like either candidate this year, and I probably won't even vote." Suits me - one less vote for McInsane.
