Signs on Northbound on I-5 near Chehalis , WA (88 miles south of Seattle )
it makes sense blog ^ | Feb 6, 2011 | professor1

The federal government is now petitioning to have these signs removed or Washington state will be denied additional monies for interstate highways. The State of Washington replied, they will secede from the Union rather than be intimidated. These are a matter of free speech paid for by a private citizen.

It seems the Obama government uses intimidation and ignores the first amendment when they want to silence someone.

I know this is an older blog posting but hadn't seen it here on FR before. Anybody that lives or travels in his area know if these signs are still there?

The enabling legislation dates back to the 1960’s....part of Lady Bird Johnson’s “Highway Beautification Program”. Basically I think they can condemn and remove signs deemed to be “ugly” from the road.

Which just proves you need to THINK far ahead to future abuses before passing even the most innocuous piece of legislation.

These signs have been there since I can first remember in 1968. Grew up in Vancouver, USA and we would travel to Fort Lewis on a regular basis as my dad was Retired Army.

They tried years ago to get them down and lost. Signs are outside the I-5 Right of Way so I don’t see where Federal Highways has any say to direct WSDOT to remove or have funding withheld.

If the signs are about Obama’s recent foiled attempt to grab our guns, then here is some food for thought:

_________

Card-carrying Obamanation Journalists have used every excuse that they can spin to enable Tyrant B. Hussein Obama to continue to bypass Congress and destroy the US Constitution.

Our sorry Liberal Agenda Media, has proven to be a willing ally to Commie Obama by publishing gun ownership information in their sorry news outlets.

“Confidential” Gun Show background checklists are as confidential as the weakest link in the confidentiality chain, be it the sorry ‘Freedom of Information Act,’ or a sorry Media outlet Editor.

The purpose of a confidentially armed America Citizenry is THE BEST DETERRENT to power grabs by Tyrants such as the current wannabe Tyrant B. Hussein Obama.

Thus, Government knowledge of private gun ownership is illegal because it is an infringement upon the 2nd Amendment.

Gun background checklists collected will be used to confiscate our anti-Tyrant guns whenever the present or future Tyrant chooses. Of course, that would happen ONLY when it is in “the National Interest.”

_________

We need to stay focused!

DO NOT GET DISTRACTED!

Commie Obama has just begun to fight us!

With Communist-Style Communal Obama’care,’ B. Hussein already has one-sixth of the US Economy under his Communist heel.

Control of the US House in the 2014 National Election will clear the way for Commie Obama to take over the other five-sixth of the US Economy.

Most of the news from the Obamanation Administration centers around topics that are designed to be just another Obamanation Smokescreen to divert the attention away from Obama managing each new Constitutional Crisis into a Regulation that violates the Constitution.

“Never let a Crisis go to waste,” is the rule that guides Commie Obama.

Examples of these Obamanation distractions are most of the social issues that get attention by the Liberal Agenda Media.

Our sorry Congressional RINOs have been to stupid to learn this smoke and mirrors distraction game, and run from bargain to bargain or deal to deal, with nary a thought to use REGULAR ORDER, as designed by our Founding Fathers to protect us from Tyrants such as B. Hussein Obama.

If “bargains” and “deals” do not work then Arrogant, Incompetent, Communist Tyrant B. Hussein Obama will try to bypass the REGULAR ORDER of Congress by using Executive Orders, selective enforcement of REGULATIONS, and other Jack-Booted actions and verbal dictates that are consistent with the Communist Cell training that B. Hussein received in his quest to “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.”

As any card-carrying Obamanation Journalist will tell you:

” - - - We must support Obama “ - - - TO FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - - - ” into a totally Regulated Communist Obamanation of Debt and Doom.

After all, how else can “- - - everyone get a fair shot?” - - - “

BTW, RECEIVING a “fair shot” would have been a lot easier if Commie Obama had succeeded in his personal recent attempted “bipartisan” destruction of the 2nd Amendment to disarm us - - - - .

Their basic message hasn’t changed. Usually have something about what ever constitutional freedom is under attack or politician that supports the attack.

I might put some up myself. Have thought about it since I saw this.

Had before, but the creativity of graphics was not there. I have a plotter that would make blow up easy and I might just copy this with some mods.

Sorry if you are offended. I cannot help that their server stopped working immediately after creating this post. I know that the link is correct, this isn’t my first rodeo.

I’d love to directly post the images or describe what they say but I can’t even get back to the page.

What can I say?

BTW, I’m now offended that you are offended at me for this.

Lewis County, where these signs are, is very conservative.

The owners of a commercial turkey farm started putting up these signs in the late 60’s or early 70’s facing I-5. Allegedly, John Birchers.

In the 90’s, they sold their business and moved the signs to property where they added a few restaurants for travelers. The signs were enlarged but still had the “Uncle Sam Says” theme.

Back then, we thought they were “kooks” . Turns out they were ahead of their time.

I live in the area. Yes, the sign is up. It has been moved from its original location by a mile or so. The old guy died awhile back and his family keep the message alive. I live about 80 miles NW from the sign. I always look for the message when driving in the area.

I drive by that sign going to and from Portland, and always make an effort to read what it says. He changes it every month or so there is always someting new. The farmer who owns the farm is quite conservative and is always very critical of state and federal governement. Since Washington is very liberal, I can understand why they would want to remove it, -to silence conservatives.

I haven’t been through Chelalis recently, but the signs have been on that property since the late 70’s that I know of. They were often very anti-UN.

This entire post is complete and total BS going back to when I first saw it years ago. No one in the government of Washington State has threatened secession in any way, shape or form. The state's politics are dominated by the Seattle metroplex, which is hard core Far Left.

The citizens of the metroplex would be happy to secede -- if they could join British Columbia and become part of Canada. A referendum on that topic in the metroplex would easily draw 60% in favor of a Canadian annexation.

But Washington is not threatening secession.

Ah yes... The Hamilton Signs... For many years the source of much fun and wonder when driving by on the freeway. Always something new. Back in the old days it was mostly Bircher stuff, anti-UN and such. But just to be clear... While I agreed generally with his signs, old man Hamilton was a nut job. I had the honor of having him personally threaten me with a shotgun once, when I was a kid. Probably a good guy in lots of ways but the dude had a really short fuse and turned into a frothing vein-popping foul mouthed redneck in an instant. :-)
