I put a separate trash can on my porch adjacent to the mailbox. I don't give them a second look. A sign on my door invites campaigners that walk to my door to kindly place their handbills into the trash can.
.
Good thing none of them are touting the environment in their accomplishments and/or goals!
.
ps: I predict the winners of this election to be the media and the printers!

Quoting scriptures ("Scriptures have a lot to say about abortion") is great, I guess; if you subscribe to those religions. Not everyone does, though.

I think the op-ed piece a few weeks ago by Dan Weaver, suggesting RAIL is the best way to go on "by-passing" the already highly traveled roads.

With a picture as proof, a ticket issued to the owner of a car PROVED to have run a light has higher credibility than a ticket issued to the owner of a car parked illegally. Few question parking tickets, so what's the big deal about a red light ticket?

Don't loan your car to others if you're afraid of getting tickets for their behavior!

When I can buy something for $16.78
And hand the cashier $21.03
And they can figure out (without a computer) that my change due is $4.25 then assign that kid a computer.
.
But assign him/her remedial math, a pencil and a pad until then.

Which is more unfair?
.
1-a person denied voting because s/he cannot identify himself
or
2-One person voting at 3 different polling places?
-
I'm quite liberal most of the time, but dammit, there's nothing wrong with identifying yourself in order to engage in voting.

MOST of those signs are on PUBLIC property, and SHOULD be removed.
.
I would never remove a sign on private property, but am 100% sure that I am entitled; nay- OBLIGATED - to remove those posted on MY property or OUR (public) property without my/our permission.
.
You sign-erectors be grown-ups. OK?

Like Steve Young ("Campaign signs are show of democracy") - I also don't mind seeing the campaign signs; WHEN THEY ARE PLACED ON PRIVATE PROPERTY!
.
All citizens should feel it their responsibility to TEAR DOWN those signs placed on public property and right of ways!

Well I guess they should have done their homework a little more thoroughly before they decided to lacate the project where it is.
.
With all the benefits already received, is it fair to come back, hat-in-hand, and ask MORE of your neighbors?
.
Shoot these new requests DOWN.

I've often used my pass on rentals, having added the rental car to those vehicles covered by my ez-pass, then removed it upon returning the car.
