I got my revenge on a Trump flag flying SOB!

I’m going south towards Phoenix and this SOB comes flying by in his pickup and cuts me off to pass a slower vehicle! It was close! He had a Trump flag flopping loosely. About a couple miles up the road, I see the flag fall off! Nowhere to go, I ran right over it! Another Trump flag bites the dust! He pulled over to try to retrieve the flag, but there nothing left to pick up a 18 wheeler runs it over!

Cheap polyester flags from China are pretty durable. Chances are it's just really dirty.

Maybe if he survives picking it up, his wife will wash it with liquid bleach.

I now this is really petty but...

A couple blocks away, there's this tRumper who put a HUGE tRump flag on top of his garage. I had to look at it on a daily basis. He finally took it down, several months after the 2020 election. He lives on a really quiet street. So now, every time I head to the main street, go down his block to increase traffic. I know it doesn't make a lot of noise, but I get satisfaction of being an annoyance in the back of his mind

Destroying the banner of an individual hellbent on throwing over our entire system of government and justice, to install a filthy liar and selfish predator hellbent on trashing EVERYTHING we grew up loving and trampling on the whole idea of America and its cherished Constitution, while doing everything he can to attain absolute dictatorial power doesn’t sound like the wrong thing to do. At least in my view. It sounds a lot more like true patriotism and true love and loyalty to the America that early patriots gave their lives to establish and protect.

If the “right” thing actually IS the right thing to do, then so be it.

yard signs and other political signs-- but the most expensive one has three houses that previously boasted Trump yard signs and two of them kept them up even after January 6 in 2021. They finally came down, but two days ago I noticed a small Trump 2024 yard sign go up in another yard. Uggh. It took everything within me to keep going and not focus on how much I'd love to do something I know I can't. But, I will avoid that block in the future. Uggh.

but every time I see a "Come and Take it," flag, I am tempted to do just that. They probably have a gun and I don't really want to start anything, but it's kind of like someone saying, "Got you last!" In an alternate universe, there is a braver me with a collection of those flags.

That was last year. This year, just a tiny TFG flag, I had wondered how dumb a repairman would be to signal his political support when a good number of his clients do not support you-know-who. Always amazes me how they don't even recognize how much business they lost (think: Mike Lindell!) as a direct result.

..only faces MY house. They used to be our BFFs but covid turned them into idiots so now they do everything to try to get us to move. I bought a bunch of yard flags...Jesus Loves You, Love Thy Neighbor, Peace and I have some Beatles 'All You Need is Love' ordered.

They arent big flags but they are strategically placed on my property so they see them whenever they drive in and out

and that creates road hazard. A loose flag blowing on the highway could land across a windshield, virtually blinding a driver and thus putting everybody at risk.

We need legislation to prevent this threat on PUBLIC roadways.

Sun Apr 14, 2024, 02:18 PM
Apr 2024

It was accompanied by a "Thank You, America" sign and a rotating series of political yard signs that basically let me know who I would vote against if I ever moved to Anacortes.

The people in the house next door must have hated it but never responded in kind UNTIL one year when they got spray on snow and wrote FELIZ NAVIDAD! on their front window in huge letters. I about busted a gut when I saw that.

About 2 mi. from my nest reside the Trump ne'er do wells. They had their Trump crap up until way after J-6. I started taking address and license plates. Apparently I got noticed calling them in, but I was just funning with them. Crap went down shortly thereafter.
