FLAUNT IT: the anarcho-punk, far left, liberal elite front yard
(my house and yard)
I was called yesterday by the newspaper and interviewed because:
a) maybe they noticed all my yard signs every fall?
b) I wrote a letter to their editor last year about how my and my neighbor's dem signage was stolen, but repubs were not?
c) 3 sets of Obama signs have been stolen out of people's yards in our little village this fall, but no McCain signs?
d) Obama signs have reportedly been stolen throughout the county, but nobody has reported McCain signs stolen.
Maybe all of the above. A person would have to get quite close to my front door to get my signs, and as I told the paper (havn't seen anything printed yet, btw...) I WILL take the photo and license number of anybody caught in my yard stealing signs, and they can discuss the matter with the sheriff.
My pal Lynda wrote quite thoughtfully about the private nature of her vote and preference. Obviously, I have been thinking about it quite a bit, and have to say that although this blog has been quiet on the elections, I have VERY STRONG opinons. I am on the very far left. Waaay left. I am a vegetarian potter and card carrying member of PETA. I voted for Fritz Mondale in 1984.
Obama was not my first choice, but he is my guy in 2008, and I would like the many hundreds of people who drive by every day to give him a chance. Plus all the other candidates whose signs are in my yard.
I think that the most interesting people are those who are kind and respectful, no matter what your views are, and I hope you feel that way about me and my blog.
