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:
“DONALD TRUMP IS A FASCIST AND MISOGYNIST AND A RACIST”
She kept that damn homemade sign in her yard for months after the election. Until she replaced it with this:
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.
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.
