They are at it in my town. I've noticed it driving around and now the local newspaper has printed details.

Some more thefts have occurred that have not been reported to police.

They even leave behind Obama signs when they take McCain signs in some cases.

Isn't this brownshirt style.

Driving through Bucks County, PA recently, I spotted a large handmade wooden sign that says: Obama - why are you trying to deny my free speech?

The goons are at it everywhere.

If you remember, during last election it was found that members of the teacher’s union were being paid a bounty for every Bush/Cheney sign they stole. It was a big problem in the south end of the county. It wouldn’t surprise me if they were at it again. If I were you I’d send a letter to the Daily Record reminding them. This is business as usual for that side of the ticket.

There’s a local black church here that has a LARGE Obama campaign sign right in front. And when I say large, I mean 4 foot by 6 foot (or so I estimate). Wonder what their tax exempt status.. I can tell you what it SHOULD be.

I don’t understand why they think this will win them an election. Just like trying to influence the polling results in the last weeks before the election. What do they think they are going to get from that? Even if every poll was very much in his favor, a poll is not an election.

Here’s a little tip that I found helpful. After putting up your sign squirt some axle grease all around the perimeter.

Just a nice little gift for anyone who’d like to help themselves to it.

I want to take the opportunity here to condemn Janine Giambalvo. Her criticism of the Obama supporter who stole her McCain sign could promote hatred against Obama. Everybody, please, please, just let the stealing, the vandalism, the vote fraud, the in-your-face bullying, the Commie associations, and all other forms of abuse from Team Obama slide. Pointing them out could stir up hatred in America.

"They're breaking the law. They're trespassing and stealing something that doesn't belong to them," she said. "And they're infringing on our right of free speech."

I believe that is the Democrat platform, is it not?

I’m working the McCain HQ here south of Denver. We give them out to McCain supporters one day, they come back the next day for another one. We are now telling people to take them in at night, too.

Funny, how none of the Obama signs seem to go missing.

Just a side note—taking the boys to school, I’ve noticed two “Another ex-Democrat for McCain” signs in our area.

This happened in 2004 as well. My parents had their sign taken in York Township (south of York). So this year they didn’t bother getting a sign.

nothing new here, when I was in high school the local republican party officials used to pay kids a 25 cent per sign bounty for every Dem sign you brought in. Probably not officially sanctioned by the party but it happened anyway.
