Battleground County

Well it wasn’t that long ago that “vandals” defaced a billboard purchased by the Sarasota Republican Party.  There was a $1000.00 reward put out by Chairman Joe Gruters to find the individual(s) that committed that act.


I have no information as to the status of that investigation or if monies donated made it possible to put another billboard in place.  What I do know that this type of tactic has hit Bay County in Florida.  You see the billboard in Sarasota was paid for by the local Republican Party.  Although the Party doesn’t have a money tree in its offices, it certainly can’t afford to replace billboards due to Obama supporting vandals.  And if they don’t have the cash reserves then the private citizens whose own property was defaced most definitely can’t afford to keep buying signs to become targets to Obama vandals.  I guess that telling the American people the truth will cause ever the most mild-mannered Obama supporter to go out and deface someone else’s property.  Nevermind that what Mr Romney stated to obviously get under the Obama supporter’s skin is based in fact.  Government dependency under Barack Obama is at 47%…these are the government’s numbers not the Romney campaign’s, but treating some Americans as adults is enough to send the easily agitated into some sort of adolescent rage.  So sad indeed.

You’d like to think that people’s private property would be respected but I guess that in the Obama Chicago Political Handbook its quite alright to go and deface private property.

 

 

And I suppose that is one of the fundamental differences of the two opposing campaigns.  One side might respectfully disagree but would be hard pressed to bring themselves to deface private property.  And the other side fully embraces the tactic of private property destruction.  Remember all the “Occupy” damage done in the past year?  President Obama and his Party fully supported the “Occupy” fiasco and it’s type of lawless behaviors.  But what do you expect when your leader is an “empty chair”.

 

 America we can do better than this….We ARE better than this.

  1. No Greg I don’t … but the ends justify the means in your world. Just how much longer do you think I’ll let you push buttons before telling you where to stick it? Personally, I don’t give one frickin bit what you say or think. You’ve proven yourself to be ….well a zombie.

    • The end does justify the means in the progressive movement. Hell, even they know it. Why else do you think Pelosi (after Obama promised the whole thing online and CNN) stated “You’ll have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.”

      They know precisely what they are doing.

  2. Ends justify the means? What the H are you talking about? You tried to make the dems out as the only party with vandals in their midst, and I showed you the error of your way; you should be thanking me for making you a smarter man, instead of reacting like a child.

  3. I live in a largely Republican area of a largely Democratic state. I’ve had to move my political signs supporting local Dems (I don’t have any national ones) right next to my house to keep them from being stolen or destroyed. It’s disgusting behavior, on either side.

    • Hokeydaddy, didn’t your mama ever tell you that if you can’t say anything that isn’t stupid, it’s better not to speak at all?

      By the way, the ACLU that you guys like to disparage as evil has come to the rescue of “free speech” more than most. There are idiots who’d like to restrict speech who happen to be Democrats and/or liberals, just as there are idiots who’d like to restrict speech who happen to be Republicans and/or conservative. For example, conservatives are the ones who regularly want to tell doctors what they can’t say–or what they should be required to say.

      • “By the way, the ACLU that you guys like to disparage as evil has come to the rescue of “free speech” more than most.”

        I think that’s probably true … to a point. I’ve seen them come to the free speech of some, at the cost of another’s. However, their latest antics shocked me the most. They actually took up the banner of the KKK. Now THAT’S benevolence, right there, yes sir.

        Whatever.

        • “I’ve seen them come to the free speech of some, at the cost of another’s.”

          An example or two would be helpful. And are you suggesting they shouldn’t have supported the rights of the KKK?

          • You deserve a longer answer than what I am about to provide, but the FSU game in on, and I only have the commercial time alotted to give you this to chew on. Maybe it’s enough.

            “”Where an individual director disagrees with a board position on matters of civil liberties policy, the director should refrain from publicly highlighting the fact of such disagreement,” the committee that compiled the standards wrote in its proposals.

            “Directors should remember that there is always a material prospect that public airing of the disagreement will affect the A.C.L.U. adversely in terms of public support and fund-raising,” the proposals state.

            Given the organization’s longtime commitment to defending free speech, some former board members were shocked by the proposals.

            Nat Hentoff, a writer and former A.C.L.U. board member, was incredulous. “You sure that didn’t come out of Dick Cheney’s office?” he asked.:

            • I agree that this is weak on the part of the ACLU, but it doesn’t fall under the First Amendment. That’s why the comments of Juan Williams at PBS and what Keith Olbermann said at Current and what Judge Napolitano and other folks said at Fox News said was protected–your employer can dicate much of what you say. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcjzdoiL0j4

              More to the point, and maybe I’m just missing something, but I don’t understand how this is the ACLU “com(ing) to the free speech of some, at the cost of another’s.” But I won’t expect a reply tonight–I see FSU has their hands full. My WSU Cougars, always bad, managed to blow a 17-point fourth-quarter lead to Colorado (maybe the worst major-college team in the country until now), in WSU’s homecoming game. Sheesh.

        James, I assume your mama did ………….so why don’t you listen to her advice?
