For those baby boomers among us, you will remember that in 1971, The 5 Man Electrical Band produced the never to be forgotten rock song, Signs.
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?
The ubiquitous campaign signage is upon us, “everywhere a sign.” It’s necessary, I suppose, but it’s not pretty. And you can tell things about your neighbors. You can now tell party affiliation by signs. RINO, “Dark Side” signs are bunched up together on prominent corners. Real Republican conservatives on another, and, of course, all the Dems have Cheney signs in their yard.
There is also a disturbing tendency. If you do not like a candidate, you resort to vandalism. A number of Hageman signs have been either ripped down or stolen. The vandalized Cheney sign above is the latest indication of how our culture has deteriorated. As much as I dislike what Cheney has disintegrated into, I dislike even more what happened to her sign. This behavior is no better than the idiots that pulled down statues and burned buildings under the masquerade of “Social Justice.” The freedom of the first amendment is paramount to our civilization.
Whoever does this, promotes nothing but hate and divisiveness, and I pray that it stops.
