    In the not too distant future, a sign that says "Palin for President 2012" could pop up along Highway 101 in San Carlos. That's because a federal judge this week ordered the city to stop enforcing part of its sign ordinance, in response to a lawsuit that contends the law violates free speech rights.
  • Anti-Obama Sign Displayed on Metro Highway

    BLUE SPRINGS, MO. – An unusual sign has appeared along Interstate 70 in Blue Springs. If you are traveling in the eastbound lanes of the freeway between Adams Dairy Parkway and the Grain Valley exit you will see a sign that appears to be anti-President Barack Obama. The sign features the hammer and sickle, a symbol of communism and insinuates that Obama will jeopardize the first and second amendments to the Constitution, which are free speech and the right to keep and bear arms. NBC Action News reporter Sloane Heller confirmed late Thursday morning the billboard is owned by William...

    Catholic League president Bill Donohue received a letter today from Patrick W. Hayes, Legal Director, City of Rockford, Illinois, saying that his office asked the owner of the Northern Illinois Women’s Center to remove the offensive poster of Jesus that we complained about yesterday. Donohue thanked Hayes for his intervention, but also took issue with him about some other matters. Below is an excerpt of his letter: Your analogy between the poster in question and pictures of aborted children fails. The pictures are a representation of real life—they are not deliberately doctored. Nor are they a bigoted portrayal. Moreover, anti-war...

    It wasn't enough for former President Jimmy Carter to falsely accuse critics of Barack Obama of being racists; now he's added a blood libel. Carter reiterated his belief that all disagreements with Obama are "based on the fact that he is a black man" Tuesday. Last night MSNBC's Keith Olbermann thanked Carter for rendering this "service" during a forum in Atlanta, where Carter said: The outbursts that we see of this scatalogical language -- the sign that I saw on television last night "We should bury Obama with Kennedy," for instance (audible gasps in the audience)...Those kind of things are...

The PA plans to implement it in exclusively Israeli-controlled areas as well. The project is part of American aid “towards the establishment of an independent Palestinian state,” as a top official of USAID (United States Agency for International Development) in the PA, Howard Sumka, told the Al-Hayat Arabic daily.

    "This used to be America," argued a protester outside a health-care town hall meeting in Reston, Va., after a police officer threatened him with arrest for holding up a sign with a picture critical of Barack Obama. The officer's response? "It ain't no more, OK?" A video of the town hall held earlier this week by Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., shows an unnamed protester standing on school grounds carrying a sign that read "Organizing for National Socialist Health Care – The Final Solution" and depicted Barack Obama in the Joker's makeup. Officer Wesley Cheeks Jr. then told the protester that...

    Lots of outrageously outraged e-mails flowing in about this, although it’s interesting to me mainly as a First Amendment curio. The footage comes from Jim Moran’s health-care town hall on Tuesday night. The question: Can a congressman bar signs, or certain types of signs, from an event at which he’s speaking? The answer (and the ambiguity) turns, I assume, on whether the event is “public” or “private.” It’s a public school and Moran is very much a public official, but recall that Claire McCaskill evidently got away with imposing a “no signs” policy at her own town hall where the...

    I'm surprised that the Rocky Mountain News didn't challenge the circumstances around the anti-Obama "swastika" sign at the recent downtown rally opposing the stimulus package ("Columnist isn't smiling over swastika in rally photo," Feb. 18). Under later questioning, Kreck admitted that the sign was given to her by a staff member for ProgressNow.org, who also provided a photographer to capture the reaction. Doesn't the event at the recent rally seem a little odd? Since ProgressNow.org seems to have the only photo evidence of the sign, doesn't it seem possible that the sign holder is a plant, or perhaps a rube...

    As tourists lined up to snap photos of the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign Monday morning, many noticed something amiss. Red graffiti was scrawled on the famous landmark, defacing the main face and one of its structural legs. Cameron Randall and friend Kevin Daniels, visiting from North Carolina, noticed it right away and were disappointed someone would damage the popular tourist attraction. "It's kind of sad someone would vandalize something like that," Daniels said. "It's the entrance to the city and everything." The Young Electric Sign Company owns the sign and leases it to Clark County, county spokeswoman Jennifer...

This one was clearly no joke. No charges were filed Sunday, but police told the woman she must take down the handwritten sign on a fence on her property saying, “I rent three bedrooms [at her address to] white people Niagara Falls.” The 53-year-old...

The framework of the transfer had already been agreed on in 2006, but several major points remain to be worked out, including the location of a base to replace Okinawa’s Futenma air station, a major hub for the Marines there....

The Brighton City Council approved a more stringent code for public conduct, and those who violate the rules – including annoying someone else – could be ticketed and fined. The ordinance was modeled after one in Royal Oak, where Brighton Police Chief Tom Wightman previously was employed. One of the sections reads, “It shall be unlawful for a person to engage in a course of conduct or repeatedly commit acts that alarm or seriously annoy another person and that serve no legitimate purpose.” Another section states, “It shall...

"Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds," the sign from the Freedom From Religion Foundation said in part.

He hung a sign reading ‘Thief’ on Gilbert and paraded him past shoppers on a busy high street before handing him to police. Now, however, officers have decided the thief should receive nothing more than a caution, while throwing the book at 44-year-old Mr Cremer, who thought he...

While it's legal to stake political signs and banners in most places, they are considered a public nuisance on overpasses. The California Highway Patrol says the signs could distract motorists. SNIP

    What are the Obama people in Las Vegas thinking? They set up a campaign office in a strip mall storefront that was formerly a tax preparation office. By not removing the old sign they have accidentally articulated the Obama fiscal policy.

    At this time of the year it's usually the leaves that fill the streets with color, this year campaign signs assist in that effort but just as the leaves disappear from the trees so are the campaign signs from the streets. "Somebody came in a hurry and got all the signs, as many as they could," Lansing resident Bill Renfrew says. And while keeping signs in your yard without them getting yanked is a problem every election season, the folks who run the Ingham County Republican office say this year is in no way typical. "Some people have been in...

    Was out for a walk yesterday, returning some movies to BlockBuster and enjoying the sanctity of a quiet Saturday night when I walked past my local eye wear fashion store (one of those local "trendy" ones and not the brand name type). Good thing I had my phone with me to take this picture because I am sure that there is a strong possibility of that store either being: a. ransacked during the post-Election riots 2) sued for libel because it didn't follow the fairness doctrine or, c. (and the most likely) strong demand for the hip new fashion statement...

    NEW GLOUCESTER, Maine -- A political sign on a front lawn depicting a life-size John McCain as a naval aviator and Barack Obama wearing a turban is drawing criticism. Robert Horr of New Gloucester said the 8-by-12 sign that's visible from Route 100 was intended to provoke debate about the candidates' qualifications to serve as commander in chief. The sign features Obama's full name, Barack Hussein Obama, and the words, "Never served in the military."

    Buses with the slogan 'There's probably no God' could soon be running on the streets of Britain. The atheist posters are the idea of the British Humanist Association (BHA) and have been supported by prominent atheist Professor Richard Dawkins. The BHA planned only to raise £5,500, which was to be matched by Professor Dawkins, but it has now raised more than £20,300 of its own accord. It aims to have two sets of 30 bendy-buses carrying the signs for four weeks in London. As the campaign has raised more than anticipated, it will also have posters on the inside of...
