Political signs - a blight on the landscape!

What a signs' forest! Not easy to decide...

James Wei said...

I do question the logic of placing signs in the middle of nowhere though.

What a ruin of beautiful expanse of space.

I agree! Just the same old CRAP, in more ways than one.

JM said...

Pollution!

Bibi said...

You're not kidding. I hate these things. I wonder if they really think they're going to change people's minds like this.

You'd never see this here, we don't advertise like this!

Judy said...

Two months to go. My vote has never been swayed by one of these signs. They should be banned.

Memphis MOJO said...

You're right, that's awful. The interesting thing is I can't see how these signs do any good. People make up their mind on whom to vote for and a sign isn't going to change it.

Even worse than the signs are the fact that often they are help up with posts of rebar sticking up from the ground. On a construction site, even where workers know to expect rebar, they would be an OSHA violation because of the impalement hazard.

To leave the rebar posts along side where people, including children walk and ride bikes, is inexcusable.

But, of course, a law on this subject would have to be passed by the same politicians who put up the signs.

I couldn't agree more. I'm so tired of seeing this mess.

OMG, is it still possible to drive here?

Randy said...

Funny we can raise money for politicians but we can raise money to help anyone who really needs it.

Lois said...

You got that right! Unfortunately it is only going to get worse.

Yep, they're a blight. Plus, ecologically, they are a terrible use of trees.

About the costumed dancers on my blog yesterday, they're not wearing ceramic costumes--cloth and beads and feathers, lots of embroidery. The name of the group has the word Cemiac in it. Here's a bit about the group from the local daily newspaper:

Portland's Comparsa Orgullo Morelense Cemiac heritage group, whose members are immigrants and first generation American-born citizens from Morelos, Mexico, will perform the state's signature Chinelo dance in their first Grand Floral parade. At the front of the pack, Alejandro Mendez Arenales will wear a costume dedicated to the dancers' new home in Oregon.

w/ regards to my blog today---
Thanks Lowell. Just the thought that I might have missed 'Miss Yellow Curls', has me a bit depressed right now. There was this little blonde in the neighborhood who...

They are terrible. And then half of them forget to pick them up after their politico loses---and that is worse.

It must be everywhere. MB

This is the down side of freedom of speech. I certainly don't see much value. I've never pondered my vote and said, "Oh, yeah! That's the guy with all the signs! I'm certainly going to vote for HIM!"

RedPat said...

I totally agree! I think there are restrictions here about when they can first go up and it isn't for very long before an election.

Halcyon said...

Ugh! That's all I have to say. :(

EG CameraGirl said...

Oh, do you have to look at that from now till November?!! I'm sooo glad our election campaigns are much, MUCH shorter here in Canada. :))

It would have been illegal here in Norway.....
