Another Yard Sign Stolen
Back in April, in the week leading up to Indiana's primary, I reported about my yard sign being stolen. Well, it happened again. When I went out to get the paper this morning, I discovered that our Obama - Biden sign was missing. More troubling was my discovery, as I drove through the neighborhood on my way to work, that virtually all of the Obama yard signs in our neighborhood were missing (and, as of just a few days ago, there were quite a few Obama signs in our neighborhood). Not surprisingly, none of the McCain signs appeared to have been stolen.
I went ahead and made a police report. I did so just to make my point, not because I think that the police will thoroughly investigate the theft or find the culprit. But when the officer spoke to my wife, he did tell her that lots and lots of Obama signs are being stolen throughout Carmel.
So my question is this: What does the City of Carmel intend to do to protect the political and free speech rights of those espousing a minority viewpoint? And what do those of us with that minority political viewpoint intend to do? For one thing, I plan to get another Obama sign and put it right back where the old one was. Every sign that I'm forced to "buy" will just put a few more dollars in Sen. Obama's campaign bank account...
