Please, for God’s sake & everyone else who drives around our beautiful State…please take down the Election 2022 signs. I thought there was a law that they had to be removed by a certain time after an election (public property), but I still see Oz, Mastriano, Fetterman, Shapiro signs all over the place…not to mention the local election people. Are there people holding out hope that they’ll eventually become winners if they lost?

Please, please, please…it’s bad enough we have to see all of the Trump/Pence crap still littering our neighborhoods (pssst…that was over 2 years ago).

if they’re planted in public space, you can stop and pick them up, too. I’ve done that for all of the candidates that were posted in the median, R and D. Just like picking up any other litter. Be the change you want to see!


Luckytattoos t1_j23mwt7 wrote

But how’s Sean from Philly going to complain about Democrats still having sign on the side of the road, if he does something humanitarian like and removes the trash instead of complaining on Reddit? (Not OP, someone from a month ago trying to backhandedly say this is only a Democrat problem.)


Nugget814 t1_j23qdv1 wrote

I’d like to add that I’m a D, and taking down R signs was really joyful. Never had so much fun taking out the trash.


googleearth92 t1_j24fqj3 wrote

Same for me taking down D signs. Waste of space.

Should probably go without saying and clearly not relevant to the center median.. but please make sure its public land first, otherwise its theft

I’ve been tempted, but I don’t want people I know to see me & think I voted for some of these people :-)


futurehistorianjames t1_j25dypk wrote

I would be careful though. Someone put razors on a sign so that if people tried to remove it they would cut themselves. Just make sure you wear some thick worker's gloves.


seriousfrylock t1_j23e1kf wrote

Whichever side you're on, if you still have a sign up, you're the problem.


genericpseudonym678 t1_j24fkh9 wrote

You underestimate how lazy I am and how annoying it is to get to the spot where I put my sign. Though, I suppose that means I’m part of a different problem. 🤔

Trump 2024 2028 2032

Pretty sure some of those signs are never coming down and the only solution is to put up some vintage Mondale '84 and Dole '96 signs.

I say Perot ‘92 would be nice as well.

I get a good chuckle out of the Mastrino signs now.


--Cr1imsoN-- t1_j23vu1u wrote

Yeah, I almost don't mind having them left up. I have a neighbor with an incredibly large and obnoxious Mastriano sign and I was sad to see it go... every morning, I could wake up and see that trashy sign and be so happy that christo-fascist wasn't elected.


JesusOfBeer t1_j23y8ar wrote

Absolutely, while I was on the outskirts of Elizabethtown I saw a massive Trump 2020 sign converted to De Santis 2024 with the quote “Make PA Florida”.

Having those snowflakes leave their signage up is a great warning sign to identify individuals who might kill people for political reasons… safety first!


Ghstfce t1_j25o54a wrote

My neighbor across the street had a "lawn of losers" - Mastriano, Oz, Polinchok... I smiled watching him begrudgingly take them off his yard and put them by his trash cans a couple days later.


eternalrefuge86 t1_j2467g9 wrote

An acquaintance of mine had a Mastriano decal wrapping his truck. It was off the day after the election.


JJGeneral1 t1_j255p7k wrote

To be fair, he may have been paid to have that for a certain time. They do that.


eternalrefuge86 t1_j25mg9p wrote

I mean I can’t say it wasn’t but this guy is a Ravi far right wing conspiracy theorist on the level of Alex Jones. He also argues that the earth is flat and tries to use the Bible as his evidence with a straight face. That’s why I referred to him as an acquaintance and not friend.


SunOutrageous6098 t1_j24cibu wrote

I have a “Presidents are temporary - WuTang is forever” sign that I will trot out every 4 years.

I need a bigger one, honestly.

I’ve been picking up any that are on public land.

I did however leave a note in a mailbox pretending to be another FJB supporter telling the homeowner that they will be receiving fines starting Nov 28th. The next day, the mastriano signs were all off his lawn. It hurt my soul to write some of the things I did but it was for a good cause. Now, my drive is back to being beautiful and sign free.

Nice work! Let the unblemished landscape on your drive soothe your soul, bit by bit.

Opening someone else’s mailbox is a federal crime. You just admitted to being a felon on Reddit. GG.


BoopBoop20 t1_j23z81p wrote

Lol, if I vandalized, took their mail or opened their mail, yes I would’ve been an idiot for saying that online BUT, I did none of the sort. If it was a crime to simply place mail in a mailbox then all mail carriers and people alike would be considered criminals.

linked source just because I know you won’t just “take my word for it”


grv413 t1_j2449iv wrote

It actually is illegal to put anything that’s not US-Mail in someone’s mailbox.

(I only know this because I hand out political literature and literally our only rule is you cannot put anything in a persons mailbox). It has to be in between their doors, on their door handle, wedged in a crack in a door. That’s why people that come and try to sell you things have door tags instead of placing them in your mailbox.


Kabloosh75 t1_j2455a2 wrote

Great. Love technicalities. Still would prefer to not have trash being attached to my door.

All the fricken trees ruined by all this junk mail and flyers by political candidates is crazy. I don't know how much I've just tossed straight to the trash. Credit card companies are the worst though. So much junk mail.

There is just no easy way to get actual mail sorted so that you never have delivered to you.


BoopBoop20 t1_j246t3t wrote

Do you know how many times I’ve opted out of paper billing and just went paperless just to have said bills delivered to my mail box…after I have paid them?! It’s absurd the amount of waste that is passed around through the postal service. I wish people would start looking at the bigger picture and not just “well it’s only one bill or one flyer that I sent out”. It’s yours, plus theirs, plus that guys power washing business, plus that landscaper, plus the bills for the next’s ridiculous


BoopBoop20 t1_j245aid wrote

Good thing there was a stamp on it 😘

Lol jk, I honestly don’t care. I got the signs down, it would’ve been worse if I climbed their fence and took them down myself but I didn’t.

Stop being asshats.

Edit: also, could you not find anything newer than 2010 for your source? That’s 13 years old…


grv413 t1_j24dwk4 wrote

Agree the signs are annoying, was just trying to clarify the laws around putting things into a mailbox since the person above you was incorrect as well. I actually think since you put a stamp on it, what you did would be legal, but I'm not a postman. Here's the Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service Domestic Mail Manual itself:

Except under 3.2.11, the receptacles described in 3.1.1 may be used only for matter bearing postage. Other than as permitted by 3.2.10, or 3.2.11, no part of a mail receptacle may be used to deliver any matter not bearing postage, including items or matter placed upon, supported by, attached to, hung from, or inserted into a mail receptacle. Any mailable matter not bearing postage and found as described above is subject to the same postage as would be paid if it were carried by mail.

How infinitesimal and meaningless you and your life must be to derive joy out of deceiving your neighbor for your own privileged aesthetic enjoyment.

And then bragging about it online.

Guy-get a life. Seriously. Being an anonymous asshole online doesn’t suite you. Go outside, breathe the fresh air, say hello to another human that’s not behind a computer screen. I guarantee your life will be a bit better without all the negativity surrounding it.

Also, why do you give two shits what I’m doing here in PA while you’re in DE? Makes no sense. Buh bye now.

You project stupidity. My literal name is in my handle, so no, I am not the "anonymous asshole" hiding behind the computer screen, Mr. "BoopBoop20" who admits to deceiving their neighbor for his own political gain.

>Go outside, breathe the fresh air, say hello to another human that’s not behind a computer screen. I guarantee your life will be a bit better without all the negativity surrounding it.

You're bragging about deceiving your neighbor because you don't like what's on THEIR PROPERTY. You literally couldn't withhold your own emotions for a selfish reason. Talk about negativity surrounding your life. I couldn't even fathom trying to dictate what is on someone else's property, whether I support it or not.

>Also, why do you give two shits what I’m doing here in PA while you’re in DE? Makes no sense. Buh bye now.

This point is my favorite.

I don't care about you, but I do care about the assholes that live in my beautiful state of Pennsylvania. If, by chance, you knew even one thing about our state, you would know the 5th LARGEST COUNTY is DELAWARE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA and, what a shocker, everyone who has flair is per THEIR COUNTY.

Does that make sense, or is your brain still marinating in a toilet?

Actually, I’ve come to find that when a person writes that long of a response, they only want one thing-to be right.

stahleo t1_j24yrzn wrote

You read every word of it, but I don't care. You bragged online about committing a juvenile act in the name of political righteousness. Enjoy your day and I hope you find internal restraint with your political beliefs.

P.S. - Nice flair ;)

stahleo t1_j257mgt wrote

I also think it's embarassing being on Reddit for a decade and unsure of how to change flair, or that Delaware implied a state on this sub, but glad someone helped. However, I wouldn't expect remorse after bragging about deceiving your fellow neighbors, though. As you say, that's not "nice."

Those are for liberals. I'm sure you have plenty.

At this point, you've dug such a deep hole that I'm willing to see how far you're willing to go. Leave you neighbors alone, bigot.

A few miles away from me there is a bumper sticker - still affixed to a road sign - for Romney/Ryan ‘12.

At least the signs pushed into the ground are easily removed….seems like a good New Year’s project, take a spin around and pull out lingering signs now that the ground is not frozen solid.

Remember that school board elections are critical! Pay attention to who’s running for those seats and what they want to do with your schools. Moms For Liberty have targeted schools in Mastriano’s district for take over.

I don't have any kids, I sure there's other people my age that are probably in the same situation as me, never be able to afford kids or a house of our own. However, I hope people know that even if they don't have kids, the stuff they teach in schools affects society overall so they should be highly motivated to get out and vote.

Moms For Liberty are probably funded by people like the Koch brother. Does citizens united keep that donor information public? Anyway, I hope people get more active in voting moving forward. New year, new you, new problems that need to be addressed.

I haven’t seen any signs on public property in a while. On private property however, there’s a massive mastriano sign, along with a few smaller mastriano and barnette signs in a yard, along 322 between Hummselstown and Rutherford that I get to see on my way to Harrisburg each morning. That, along with the trump 2020 flags hanging on their fence gives me a chuckle

I would disagree. I don’t think anyone is persuaded by yard signs. I think it’s people low-key saying “look at me”! It is a battleground state, but leaving yard signs in isn’t a way to “keep momentum” when most of the signs I see are from the losing side. Just MO


NewAlexandria t1_j24sdbx wrote

PACubsFan23 OP t1_j24uf5q wrote

More people definitely are saying “fuck off” now than ever before, that’s for sure. Dems have seemed to be more willing to venture towards the center-right on issues than the other way around, which coupled with candidate choice, pulled moderate Repubs to vote D…so although I see your point, I’ll go back to my original post & reiterate that I don’t see the need to keep yard signs up all year around & beyond…just to “own” others (if that is their intention).
