Obama barn hurting brother's Elkhart County business
WSBT.com ^ | Sept 12,2001 | Sarah Rice

Posted on 09/15/2008 4:02:39 AM PDT by AmericanMade1776

There's no doubt the upcoming election is having a big impact on people. But places? A local farm market owner is losing business because of a political sign put up by his brother. Sweet corn is their specialty. But lately Bullard's Farm Market is getting some not-so-sweet attention.

"Over the Labor Day weekend my brother painted a barn," explained Bullard's Farm Market owner Kevin Bullard.

An Obama Barn that is. It's part of a grassroots campaign called "Barns for Obama." Supporters paint an "O" on their barns to show their support.

barn being painted in Trumbull County (OHIO)is showing support for Barack Obama. It belongs to Joe Logan of Kinsman, the President of the Ohio Farmers Union. When painters put up the message last month on Logan's Barn it was shot in time lapse photography and posted on Obama's campaign web site.

Isn’t that the truth. You have to wonder about any business person who puts up an Obama sign

No business for the Obama barn....

That’s the price the barn owner should pay for being such a doofus.

Let him or her try and survive on just Obama lackeys.... most of whom will probably demand freebies.

We were going to paint it on our barn but we own a cotton farm and they asked us not to.

Hard to believe a farmer could find anything to identify with Obama, who probably never ever planted a seed.

And of course, the guy blames it on his brother.

How typical, always someone else’s fault.

Let us know when he stop advertising in Fort Wayne. With Washington, Michigan, and Minnesota back in play I have a feeling Obama will shift his resources away from Indiana.

Farmer’s Union —? Yeah, it’s a long-standing group, leans Democrat. They would like to group together for bargaining power on prices but around here it’s not really caught on. Most farmers in this area are more conservative.

As for the two brothers, the one who owns the barn is NOT the one who operates the farmer’s market. The market probably should not take a hit for his brother’s indiscretion.

My in-laws ought to paint a big star on their barn for McCain/Palin but they just are not the type to do so ;-)

Not necessarily - Obama was a pothead, you know.

So in order to support the Obamantion, one brother has painted an OBAMA ‘08 on his barn — with no apparent concern for what it is doing to the other brother’s business? That’s about the level of morality I expect from a leftist Obamabot...

Famers as welfare queens .... Let me run that by my husband, the farmer. He will get a laugh out of it since we’re not in the farm program. Most of the neighbors aren’t, either.

Most people with no connection to farming see it through the media’s lense, that all farms are all alike, all across the country.

maybe they can donate their corn to a food bank that’s been set up by a community organizer.

It would have been more appropriate for the campaign to be “Out Houses for Obama”.

Why?

They are BOTH full of shit.

Stupid is as stupid does. People vote with their wallets. Its as simple as that. Perhaps the FEC should look into excessive donations for a candidate as well.

It’s sort of like a farmer selling his soul to the devil. He gets a free paint job, possibly costing a few thousand dollars, but then helps to destroy the country.
