It's Christmas. The elections are over. Most of the yard signs went away quickly but there are still some stalwarts keeping them up, and all of those I have seen are for candidates that lost.

Unless they are being left up in protest of massive voter fraud that stole the election, of course.

/s in case it's needed. Clean up your garbage!

That one can stay

Well, that sign is nothing to fuck with.

Always Bob signs, its about owning the libs

I have a Lamont sign and a Jahana Hayes sign still up because for the past five weeks the only times I remember that I need to take them down are when I'm already running late for something.

It should be a fucking law. Day after election day? Take it down.

In your own yard? Go nuts.

On public property? Restrictions are constitutional. Otherwise we would just see commercial billboards over every inch of public space.

I agree, in fact they really don't belong on public property in the first place

The constitution means nothing. It's up to a judge to decide.

And a judge is going to rule that political speech is protected by the first amendment

That and they should limit how many can be put up. It looks so ugly


JDMhammer t1_j1k98dh wrote

And you can only put them up for the 30 days beforehand


the-crotch t1_j1k2vbe wrote

Yeah fuck the first amendment who needs the right of political speech in a free society


spmahn t1_j1k9z3n wrote

Same thing with your Tag Sale signs. There should be a law that tag sale signs need to have a month and year on them, and you should be fined for each one you leave up more than 5 days after that date.

Yeah I live in Southwest Florida now. You tell somebody to take down their Trump 2020 signs. You're likely to get shot. These people down here are stupid and unstable and should not have access to firearms.

Those people have been shit on socially and (I believe) fined or at least cited multiple times for that ridiculous eyesore. The dude has lost significant business, his wife has been ostracized right along with him, but they’re sticking to their guns for “their president.” It’s gross. And a little funny. And very pathetic.

You can take comfort in the fact that like half or more of their family is actively ignoring them today/tomorrow

Holy crap, how are people taking my wisesass comment as a mythical attempt to subvert their Constitutional Rights? Keep your plastic signs for your losing candidate on your lawn for as long as you want. I find it sad, but this is America; go nuts. Clean them up from public spaces though. If you planted it, it is your responsibility to clean it up.

Welcome to the Qult. Lol. I tried to argue that mentally unstable people shouldn't have access to firearms once. Holy shit did that blow up, I got actual death threats........ From the people that resembled my comment

SirEDCaLot t1_j1lns3t wrote

Yeah I agree.

Near where I work there's a Bob Stefanowski sign stuck in the ground right next to a highway onramp. I've been tempted to remove it but there's no safe place to park near there to grab it.


HollowPluto t1_j1m0cay wrote

I’m the opposite. Leave all the signs up. Put more if need be. Regardless of political affiliation; if it’s the most interesting thing about you, I know to steer clear.


wanderingMoose t1_j1k0pwk wrote

Blight laws sometimes exist. Unfortunately the only organizations that uphold them are the HOAs.


the-crotch t1_j1k33gm wrote

That's because it's unconstitutional for the government to restrict political speech. HOAs are private organizations the first amendment doesn't apply to them.


IMNOT_A_LAWYER t1_j1k4lec wrote

Blight laws usually have an element of safety involved (such as conditions that might give rise to an infestation of pests) and are often enforced by the Department of Public Health.

Blight laws don’t deal with signs we find annoying.

Mental health is a thing. The aforementioned sign people must be delusional.

My favorite is the Rob Hotaling sign on Route 68 in Wallingford 🙄

I still have mine up because I keep forgetting about them until I'm already running late for something. I meant to make them down like 5 weeks ago.

Mine were for candidates that won, though. (Lamont and Hayes).

There's a Qultist near me that keeps a life-sized Trump cutout in their living room window year 'round. I'm sure they think that they are owning their neighbors.

Road safety signs are okay, but yeah take down the religious ones.


Dirt_Bike_Zero t1_j1kg2ck wrote

They're all illegally posted, unless the property owner gives them permission. The political ones are generally put up with permission of the property owner and taken down by whoever put them up after the election is over.

This person doesn't know where they stand at all.


Invest-24_7_356 t1_j1kbezv wrote

Maybe the signs are up so people know they didn't create the crap that has happened.


EvidentlyEmpirical t1_j1lijj3 wrote

The crap that has happened has been worldwide.

I guess it's too much to expect a conservative to understand that world events affect the US, too.


Invest-24_7_356 t1_j1mn2kl wrote

When most of the world uses the same money it will be.

Not that difficult to figure out.


EvidentlyEmpirical t1_j1mrnt9 wrote

Do yourself a HUGE favor and look at inflation around the world. Look at gas prices on the global markets. This isn't a US only problem - we don't have to be using a universal currency for global scarcity to affect us. Every nation has suffered from supply chain issues in the wake of Covid, and every nation has suffered from high gas prices as a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine (because gas is sold on a global market).

Yeah, not that difficult to figure out, if you're not myopic and actually know something about economics.

Honestly it would take an utter buffoon to not see this - you'd have to be willfully blind or completely incapable of basic causality.


coolducklingcool t1_j1lofbl wrote

The crap hasn’t happened yet because the new elected candidates aren’t I until January…


Invest-24_7_356 t1_j1mmncj wrote

It is okay, you didn't understand. I don't have signs and the people who do can do as they want.

Just because you disagree with someone does not mean you can't get along or work together.


coolducklingcool t1_j1mqcku wrote

Where did it say otherwise? Simply pointing out the fallacy of your logic. The officials elected in November do not begin their terms until January. Thought that was pretty easy…
