Okay, what?

This is not a joke.

I put up an Obama/Biden sign in my front yard last night when I got home from work. This morning, as I was pulling out of my driveway I noticed my sign was on the ground. My first thought was that it must have blown over, but then I remembered it was not at all windy last night. I looked at the sign carefully before putting it back in the ground. It was not damaged at all, for which I was grateful (be it human hands or nature that knocked it down, at least it was intact). I would have thought that had the wind blown it down the metal stands would have been bent slightly from resistance, right? Also, it was parallel to the driveway/perpendicular to the house – like it fell completely straight over. I would have thought if wind knocked it down it would be at some kind of angle. So I think someone may have come into my yard, plucked up my sign, laid it flat on the ground, and left. That’s kind of creepy.

I did the early vote option. Have you thought of doing that to avoid the crowds on election day?

It sucks that people would mess with your property.

I voted today! At first I wasn't too worried about the crowds as sometimes I find it exciting in a sort of "in the moment" kind of thing much in the same way I enjoy the lines for registration at Dragoncon and enjoy sports live when I don't like them on tv. After hearing about 8 hour waits in south Florida and Atlanta, I decided I didn't want that much excitement. I know our city isn't as big as Atlanta, so we probably won't be eight hours, but it could be two or three, and I don't know if my office would be happy about that. :) It's hard when you work in one city but vote in another - you can't sneak off during a lunch break.

I agree. They've spent a lot of money on early voter pushes for that very reason. I just am not a big fan of crowds and the claustraphobic feeling.

Yep, that's why I didn't put a McCain sign outside where I live, since I like my windows. People are idiots.

I actually worried a bit about that! I think you'd probably be okay. We've had a few McCain signs in our neighborhood for weeks and weeks now, but they've had no problems. It's a pretty strongly Republican state!

yeah, I'm quite sure it was someone who didn't like Obama. They have the right to have their believes... they need to accept that you have the same. I can't stand people like that.

Me either! I may not have been happy to look at the McCain signs as I drove home every day, but I never messed with them! I expected the same consideration in return, darn it. I was actually afraid for our house for fear they would mess with other things as well. :(

Consideration aside, the sign is on your property and is, in fact, your property. That amounts to trespassing and vandalism.

A person who has so little respect for a person's right to free speech and their right of property ownership is not the kind of person I want voting for our leadership.
