After dark . . . Tuesday

I have a friend who "knows people" in the inner sanctum of the Obama campaign ... and our little party on April 27th has attracted some interest. Which raises this question: who would we like to have from the campaign to attend our bash? I asked for Barack Obama himself, of course, but that's a gigantic long shot. Maybe he'll be passing through town that afternoon and will stop by for a drink, but let's not count on it. My other thought is for someone associated with Obama's new media operation. We could ply him (or her) with beer and get the inside scoop on how they're kickin' butt in the interTubes department. Your thoughts?

Blackwater runs deep

Now the mercenaries are "helping us" in Turkey. I hate these bottom-feeding war profiteers.

I am talking about the murderous organization known as Blackwater.

We know that they always work in Iraq. But nobody is asking what they might have gotten up to in Turkey. The US government extended by one year the Iraq contract for this network that carries out its dirty work. Yet, they have been held accountable for the massacres of civilians. Lawsuits have been filed. Not even the Baghdad administration could stop their contract being extended. They are going to continue to kill.

We can do it.

Tell him/her we'll have cameras, laptops, liveblog, maybe livestream (working on that). We'll make it happen if they show up. Same goes for Clinton campaign.

Good point to invite Hillary, too

I don't know anyone who's helping her (other than those folks who post here, who I only know by screen name) ... but you're right. Let's have 'em both come!

I just invited them

Who knows? You have to ask.

I've invited them as well hehe

My only beef is when I initially submitted our media request for a live-blog a few weeks ago with the Obama campaign, all they did was harvest my email address for fundraising. So, not cool.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I figured

Interesting observation though. Obama does seem more "connected" but Clinton seems to be more "accessible", in NC at any rate. Obama seems to have more gatekeepers.

I haven't really tried to contact other than

to invite for a live-blog and then to invite for the blogger bash. I just used the web sites. I have no connections at all. You're the one with all the connections. :D

No more signs for you!

What gives with that?

prevention

Does anyone have any idea how prevent that?

land mines?

Tried that

Apparently they are illegal. Who knew...

Okay

As any candidate who has ever worked with me knows, I am very anal about yard signs: who has how many, where are they placed, are they maintained, are any missing, are they picked up afterwards, etc.

Yard signs are property, and I would immediately call the police upon theft of a sign from private property.

You are talking to a guy who usually spends many hours and tons of gas placing signs throughout the district, and I demand a reason for every sign that goes missing.

Sometimes it is due to local maintanence, sometimes it is weather, sometimes it is rival campaigns, but I will eventually find out who is responsible.

Slap me in the face, and I'll turn the other cheeck. Steal one of my signs, and we have a serious problem.

In South Carolina.,...

When my Kerry/Edwards sign was stolen I made my own "You can steal my sign, but not my vote, Kerry Edwards for President".

My sign showed up the next day, wrinkled but intact.

I Twitter, Therefore I Am.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Dog poop or electricity

Pile dog poop around the signs so the thiefs will step in it or electrify the metal stands

Here's an idea

Put two yard signs for Besse up. Shoot one with a shotgun so it will be filled with holes, and then staple a sign to all your signs that says:

If either of these signs are moved, it will trigger my shotgun to go off. Thank you!

lol

Don't try this at home kids.

Wag of the Finger

One should never shoot a yard sign..ever.

A sign from God or the NRA

My yard signs keep getting stolen

2 of my Dan Besse yard signs have been taken within hours of putting them up. The thief hasn't touched the Jim Neal sign.

Does anyone have any idea how prevent that?*loftT

Yes! Simply post another sign that says " The owner of this property is a life time member of the NRA and has contracted out the security of this property to the Blackwater group. Any person of interest caught removing political signs from this property will be beated, torture and waterboard with hot water."

I have no idea why the thief wouldn't steal the Neal signs unless the Hagan people are not that smart and can't read.

That's really weird

You'd think they would either pull up all the signs or none of them at all . . .

You sure you didn't put the signs in the neighbor's lawn?

Brilliant

She's something else. How great would it be to see Michelle Obama in the Whitehouse? So fresh and inspirational.

On the stolen signs

Do call your local BOE and report it. It's a violation of election law. Also, closely check the requirements your town has for where they can be placed. I know Southern Pines will go around and pick up signs that are improperly placed and just stick them behind the post office. Even though it's your private property, there might be something about how many feet from the road they have to be, etc.

Yep...in Mecklenburg I think it is pretty far back

even in private yards. Also, I think they turn a blind eye on illegal sign placement for the final week or so....but I'm not 100% positive about that.
