I live in probably one of the nerdiest, safest, most carefully mowed/landscaped suburbs on the planet complete with kids waving cheerily and politely when they pass on their bikes (when we moved here I told my husband we'd moved into A Very Brady Neighborhood). But oddly...their are practically NO signs or auto stickers anywhere around here.

I'm not sure why but I'm thinking maybe someone knows something I don't, so I don't have a yard sign either. I don't know, maybe the Stepford Vandals come in the middle of the night to very politely vandalize the yards of those who put up the wrong sign or something.

You were also ~13 when the first Harry Potter book came out, but that's lost on some of these people who also think that nobody older than 15 has ever played a video game.

Centaurmyst....I don't believe a word of your post, but what I DO believe is anyone who makes fun of a person who happens to be poor is mentally unbalanced. Shame on you! A word of advise. Be careful of what you say because one day it might come back and bite you in the A**.

What? Anyone who is poor made that choice and I don't want any of my tax dollars going to help their lazy welfare-grubbing asses out.

...what? Oh, sorry, I've been hanging around freerepublic too much....

Seriously, how does the above indignant post reconcile with the whole "I don't want MY money going to lazy people with no jobs!" carp we've been fed for months on here now by the Conservative Reich?

I live in West Texas. Hillary THUMPED Obama here in the primary and he doesn't have much support. You can reason through it or keep denying that many parts of the country can't stand Obama.
I can imagine what those parts are

Quite true, and it's funny when people give me the thumbs up because they think I'm voting republican

Obama has a lot of support here in Houston. The wealthiest areas/inner loop neighborhoods have a heavy presence of Obama signs. Something else that I find interesting: Around where my friends live in Alief (which is heavily Hispanic) McCain signs outnumber Obama signs at least 3 to 1. As usual, the Hispanic vote seems hard to peg.

I've instructed my son to go to the repub and dem headquarters and get one sign for every politician. We are going to plant all of them in the yard, and let people make of that what they will.
I was amused the other day when I saw a Kerry Edwards sign.
