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!

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

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

But how will a bunch of strangers driving by know who I voted for?

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.

Except the one on my neighborhood that says "Politicians are temporary. Wu-tang is forever"

That one can stay

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.

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

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.

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

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.

You can't make me take my Eunice Groark '94 sign down

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.

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

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).

Your blue lives matter flag can go in the garbage too.


OpalBooker t1_j1lnljk wrote

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.


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.

There should be a fine per day they are up past the election.

When do we bring inside the random crazy guys holding “Trump won” signs?


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.


justweazel t1_j1mb322 wrote

How about all of the election signs from 2020, can those come down yet? Or is it to soon…?

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.

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.
