Another Homemade Sign pops up in my neighborhood

homemade sign-02

Whelp. Another election is on the horizon and another homemade sign has made an appearance on my street.

As you might recall (if you’ve been a regular reader for a while) in August 2016 I told you about one of my neighbors who put a homemade sign in her front lawn that read:


She kept that damn homemade sign in her yard for months after the election. Until she replaced it with this:

homemade sign-02

That new sign still sits in her front yard – along with her Dana Balter for Congress lawn sign.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say she doesn’t particularly like Donald Trump.

Any old how, yesterday I stepped out onto my front porch to get the mail and saw that one of the SU students that rents an apartment in the 4-unit across the street from me has his own homemade sign.

It’s about three feet high and 2 feet wide and he placed it in his living room window.

It reads:


Get it? “KKK.” Isn’t he Klever?

John Katko is our nominally Republican Congressman and his opponent Dana Balter is an SU professor and proud member of the ResistanceLOL.

Balter’s signs are all over my neighborhood. And most folks around here also have a smaller lawn sign that reads: “Shame on Katko.”

But apparently having a Balter sign in the front yard of the 4-unit wasn’t enough for the Klever Kollege Kid. He just had to add his own homemade sign.

Now, I don’t know what kids Congressman Katko has kidnapped. Those seem like serious charges. Perhaps instead of making a homemade sign, the young man should use that energy to contact the police.

But hyperbole reigns supreme among the ResistanceLOL.

And the ResistanceLOL reigns supreme over my neighborhood.

Now do you understand why I needed to scrape the Trumper-Sticker off the window of my new car? With neighbors like these, I’d more than likely come out to find my car window smashed.

As it is the TRUMP sticker on my front door has resulted in my neighbors letting their dogs crap in my lawn and driveway without cleaning up after them. I clean up after them. And I often get the stink eye if I’m in my front yard. I’ll smile and say hello. And in return the passing neighbor will scowl at me like I killed his puppy.

But there is also a silver lining.

That TRUMP sticker on the front door window is better than pepper spray at keeping solicitors away. Last week some young canvassers were going door-to-door for Balter. They rang my bell but quickly hastened away before I could even get to the front door.

The problem with living in close proximity to a liberal university is the Democrat voters here are by and large college students. Which means they’re immature, emotionally unstable, startlingly self-absorbed and given to wild hyperbole.

So seeing “Katko Kidnaps Kids” on a homemade sign is hardly a surprise.

Balter has a lot of support here – no doubt because A) she teaches at SU and B) Leftists are more common than crabgrass.

But District 24 is not just far-Left University Hill.

And as of yesterday’s Spectrum/Siena College poll, John Katko is polling at 62% to Balter’s 30%.

Hell, even 20% of Democrats support Katko the Kidnapper of Kids.

Which only proves that university students live in a bubble – where unicorns and rainbows abound. And snotty homemade signs can alter reality.

    Yes you do unfortunately need to keep your stickers off your car and careful with your house unless you are going to install cameras. When I lived in SF Bay area my car was carved into due to Republican support.

    Ironically your neighbors believe their own tripe as do most leftists. It’s pathetic really.

    I find it rich the sign proclaims the mantle of tolerance for disabled because my disabled husband will prove to you leftists are the least tolerant to handicapped.

    #moveaway! Sorry, but you could not force me to live in any city, much less among the America haters. They don’t hate Trump, so much, they just hate the folks that voted for him. Mr. Fred Rogers himself, would be pilloried as Satan, were he to try and be a conservative Patriot. They hate…..US! AND the USA! No denying it anymore. And by extension, hate themselves, right down to their own DNA. There is no compromise, there will be no peace, or civility towards us, until either we, or they, are completely vanquished. Or until we draw a line in the sand, pick sides, separate, and then exist only as neighbors, and mortal enemies until the end of time. If/when the SHTF, you may want to be in Free America somewhere.

    So much for the tolerant left. Sorry you have to live with neighbors like that. You are behaving like such an awesome adult, it’s sad that they can’t reciprocate. Sadly they can’t see how they are exactly what they claim republicans are. Where I’m from we still don’t talk politics or religion with a person unless we know they aren’t easily offended or we lean the same way on those subjects. Makes it so much easier on all involved if we just agree to disagree. The democrats need to be led by the more moderate individuals (if there are left at this point) of their party and not their far left dickheads.

    Not that I’m encouraging you to do it this way, but if their pets are let out to be free to roam and deposit in your yard, there is a great remedy for this.
    A friend of mine used to fill a squirt gun with “deer rut,” available at all Bass Pro and hunting stores. It is THE foulest smelling liquid on earth, basically female deer urine in a bottle, designed to excite bucks.
    He’d administer a couple of squirts on a depositing pet and they’d run back to their owner’s house and roll around on the carpets. He has seen several visits from the Stanley Steemer Carpet people. The offending neighbors would have their carpets steam-cleaned and still let their dogs out, where he’d repeat the same process. Dog instantly runs back and rolls around on newly cleaned carpets, facilitating a new call to the steam people. Isn’t that just perfect?

      It’s the city. They’re walking dogs on leashes and letting them take a dump in my yard without cleaning it up. But I’m not averse to spraying the owner with deer rut. You’re right. That stuff stinks to high heaven.

    Agree with you on removing the Trump bumper sticker. The only sticker on my car is my USMC Anchor Globe and Eagle. Figure that says everything. Also wonder how many potential vandals pause and think “Let’s leave this one alone.”?
