Political Signs

Those signs's up everywheah just now, with folks tryin' to get other folks to vote for 'em. I know some of those names, because it's a lotta the same ones every time.

This fella Stump Grinding seems pretty popular, but I don't know nothin' about him at all.  I knew a Stump Fernald who lived out by the Seacoast yeahs ago, but I don't know any Grindings whatsoever.  Doesn't sound like a New Hampsha name, and probly not Maine nor Vermont, neither. He doesn't seem too bright, doesn't even mention what office he's running for.

It must be a national office because he's got signs out here in the west.

I was thinking the other day about your post hating on memes. Maybe memes are to millennials what bumper stickers were to boomers? I don't see too many bumper stickers anymore. It might be because progressive millennials will torch your car instead of just scratching it if they disagree.

Interesting. In the 60s - 80s a lot of bumper stickers might signify any of a number of beliefs, but now almost always means liberal, especially environmentalist around here. I hadn't thought of the vandalism aspect to that not having conservative ones.

My mother strongly disliked bumper stickers, considering them an ostentatious display. The only 'political' sign that was ever in our yard was when my brother was running for high school student council president, and she wasn't thrilled about that. It was 1991 before there was a bumper sticker on a car registered in my name - that was a local radio station sticker covering up a quite noticeable rust spot on the 1976 Monte Carlo my teenagers shared.

However, my mother would have loved Facebook memes where she could share her opinionated sense of humor with select friends, as I do now. She did this in a limited way with postcards and greeting cards.

I'm imagining her enjoyment of this post!

Ayuh, but I can't vote for a fella that promises to have nothing left when he's done.
