The audacity of theft

June 6th, 2008 · 152 comments

Writes an anonymous submitter in Houston: “A neighbor in my building put up an Obama yard sign on the door of her apartment around the time of the Texas primary. When it disappeared, I assumed she took it down herself.”

Then up went this note — a cheerful bit of propaganda that oh-so-subtly disproves all those ugly stereotypes about “self-righteous Obama supporters” with a colorful blaze of moralistic tsk-tsking and First-Amendment flag-waving. (Woo! Obama ’08!)

To the not so neighborly Republican or Hillary support who STOLE my Obama sign: PLEASE return it. Although I am unable to locate a stipulation in the lease that prevents the expresion [sic] of my first amendment rights, I would be more than happy to display the sign inside my apartment rather than on the door. However, STEALING is not only illegal, it's downright tacky. Just put it outside my door and I'll take it inside. THANKS! OBAMA '08!

      It would be propagandist if the Obama placard was not actually stolen. If the sign replaced the placard simply to leave the impression that Obama’s message was being unfairly censored, for example.
      Not that I would ever accuse anyone of such shenanigans during an election cycle! :evil:

    “Expresion.” That’s the only mistake I find in a 15-second perusal of the sign. Oh, that and THE CAPITAL LETTERS which in this case are pretty well-placed, actually.

      Should it be a lease “provision” which “prohibits”?

    • #4.3   Joe

      No. That is generally used when the phrase is critical to the statement; no comma is used. E.g., I drive the car that is blue.

      Which is used for additional information; a comma is generally used. E.g., I drive a car, which is blue.

      Oh, wait. Are you asking about prevents/prohibits? I agree, prohibits is better in this case, but I don’t know that prevents is wrong, just inexact. Clauses may prohibit actions, but they can’t actually prevent them.

    Was our Obama Girl aware that her apartment door (and the sign) was located a mere 25 yards from a polling station? Whoever stole it saved her the trouble of a lengthy political lawsuit, courtesy of Hillary’s lawyers.

    When people say they would be, “more than happy” to do something differently than what they just did, they are lying. If doing it that way makes them “more than happy”, why didn’t they do it that way in the first place?

    In my experience, people who say that they will be “more than happy” aren’t even close to being happy, and are, in fact, headed in the wrong direction.

    Typically, the construct goes:

    Stealing is not only illegal, it’s down right tacky.

    Therefore, tackiness >> violation of statutes.

      a) Propaganda? I’m not seeing it either.

      b) Oh, come on. The sarcasm in the intro statement is self-evident. The point is that the author of the note comes off exactly how the stereotype dictates: the “self-righteous,” “moralistic tsk-tsking and first-ammendment” appeals.

      I think the “please return it to me” is a bit whiny and PA’ish. “I think you’re a tacky bad person, but please do me a favor and return it to me.”

      As if the person who took it has kept it. I’m sure it is in a dumpster by now.

      And what makes this person think it was a Hillary supporter or Republican? The poor Green, Libertarian, and other 3rd parties never get any credit. :(

    I’m thinking her First Amendment comment is probably tongue-in-cheek, but if not, she’s made a common mistake. The First Amendment only applies to government actions, that is, it would have to be a government official who took down her sign before she could claim protection under the First Amendment. Private citizens can restrict your speech all they want.

    Isn’t the point of a political sign to advertise the candidate you support? Posting said sign inside your house, instead of outside, where other people can see it somewhat defeats the purpose. Given that you own a sign and are willing to post it, you probably don’t need much convincing. Unless the person has no memory. For whom am I voting? Oh, yes, Obama! Glad I put that sign there.

      Maybe it’s an autographed Obama sign or something. Or it’s hand-quilted using scraps of her children’s baby blankets.

      Ha! “expresion.” Nice.

      I was in Houston today and saw my first-ever McCain sticker. Frankly, I’m shocked there are ANY Obama supporters in Houston, i.e., Bush Country. But maybe that’s my elitist, Austin-dwelling viewpoint.

      uh, I’m from Houston and there are Obama signs/murals EVERYWHERE! this is not Bush country- that’s more west Texas oil money folks. I personally do not know a single person who voted for Bush either time.
      I actually saw MY first McCain sticker last week at the grocery store in an affluent neighborhood-go figure- but Houston and Austin about as progressive as you can get for Texas.

    yes, surely Obama supporters are the only people in the political spectrum who could be mistaken for moralistic tsk tsking, first amendment invoking flag wavers.

      A G-spot bend is when the erect penis is formed in a manner that affords it maximum contact with the front of the vaginal wall also know as the “g-spot”.

      Of course some guys don’t need a g-spot bend. Some guys have enough girth to create the requiste friction. Those guys I call moderately endowed but I’ve been told that my cervix cracking length and python-like width is quite unusual so I’m a bit biased.

    Long time lurker, first time poster here. This reminds me of my undergrad school, which was a really conservative Catholic college. During the 04 election, the profs. (who were very liberal) would post Kerry posters on their office doors.
    After the profs. went home for the nite, students (prolly the ones w/ W04 stickers on their doors) would tear the Kerry posters down, shred them, and toss them in a nearby trash can. The next day, certain profs. would just print out a new Kerry poster and the cycle would continue. I wonder if the Obama-sign-stealer is an alumnus of my school?
