They have the plague, so I would bet the coveted prairie dog demographic is voting just on whoever's health care claims they believe.

Okay, this swing state shiat is for the birds. And no, I don't mean we should start letting birds put up farking signs.

I'm in the Bay Area.
I see many more houses with Obama paraphernalia than Romney stuff. However, the few Romney folks seem to like to put up at least a dozen stupid signs, instead of one like everyone else.
Has anyone else noticed this?

Awww. That's cute.

Is the Plague a pre-existing condition? I missed the last debate, when, from what I heard, they were likely to have covered some dumb crap like that.
 
2012-10-30 03:46:12 PM
Okay, I have to admit, that's funny.
 
2012-10-30 03:47:31 PM
No surprise, I'm sure Romney is real popular with the weasel community as well, same as the Kochs and similar.

Any prairie dogs in favor of Obama will be vacuumed up and sold as pets in Japan.

What's for the birds is "winner take all" - states sending all their electoral college delegates for one candidate, rather than letting them be proportional to registered voters*. Get rid of that and campaigns will stop focusing on "swing" states and ignoring "got it made" states.

/* if 25% of registered voters don't vote, the state sends 25% of its electors uncommitted ;-)
//Why should it be over in one ballot? The Electoral College is supposed to be for negotiating, reaching consensus...
///voters and news outlets should pay closer attention to local and state races anyway.

The verb "to bird (someone)" in German (vögeln) is slang for "to shag."

/idk why "bird" followed by "swingers" made me think of that

I work just down the road from Boulder in the Louisville Tech Center. Sadly, the prairie dogs around here are much less patriotic and much more focused on day to day matters. Just today, I saw a prairie dog being dismembered and eaten by a crow. No word on the prairie dog's affiliation, but given the condition of the carcass, I'd say the crow will soon have a need for Obamacare.

All over the place.

And the people who brag about their "research" and claim they vote for the best possible person, not straight Republican tickets, have a half-dozen signs for every single Republican on the ballot.

I can't believe folks think Colorado is a swing state---they have more legal weed than Oregon by a damn site (the stuff Romney has vowed to fight because who cares if 15 states want it?

I'm always amused by campaign signs on vacant lots.

Abandoned Houses for Romney!
Scrub land for Obama!

All I know (living in Coloweirdo) is that I can't wait for the election to be over so I can stop hearing 6 hours of political ads per day. "this guy is bad" "this other guy is even worse" "oh yeah.. you should hear what this guy had to say about your mother". Good god people. I hate you all equally, Republican/Democrat, it doesn't matter. You will all be the first against the wall when the revolution comes.

sirgrim: 30-06 with hollow points and they explode like little meat balloons.


.30-06 is kinda expensive for dogs. Hell, even .223 is getting a little too high. No, subsonic .22LR is where it's at.

/I am with you though, the big stuff is more entertaining.

What are the odds that the reporter planted the signs to have a story?
 
2012-10-30 04:19:35 PM
I know I'm going to be a Debbie Downer, but I suspect they aren't a fan of those signs. It probably blocks their sight-line and have to dodge them when running for cover.

This right here. While I'm in a different state, it's the same damn thing. I don't think I've heard a single political ad that wasn't about how terrible the other guy was with no mention of why he should be elected and what he'd do in the elected position.

The problem is, at best they live to 8-13 years old. The little guys aren't old enough to vote.

Yeah but it's all in 3 or 4 cities, not across the whole state. Colorado is kinda like Oregon like that. Lots of urban liberals surrounded by few rural conservatives. Then there's the mountain folk, who are liberal, and baked, but will blow your face off with their high powered rifles. Good times! And goddamn the herb is good. I like it here. :)

Yes.

Same thing happening in Eugene, Oregon and the surrounding area.

One or two signs for the Democrats running, then the places with Romney signs have two or three for them, some BIG ones for the guy running for Congress with platitudes and statements that make me ask "So why is he not running on the Democratic ticket", and then 3 or 4 for a local race.

Yeah. Although I doubt any prairie dogs will actually die because of this, it probably stresses them out a little.

What I'm seeing over here is ALL romney signs, not a smattering of Romney and other GOP, but all Romney. Also one evening some tool was out on his front lawn waving a romney banner at passing cars and cyclists wearing a frankenstein mask... I just don't know what to say to that.

The few conservatives I know have said they are not voting for Romney or Obama.

I would so much rather see that. I suppose what bugs me is that I KNOW these folks don't make enough money to vote Romney, that's for the folks up in Woodside and up in the hills. These guys are just idiots like my father... sigh.

I'm not sure what threshold qualifies a state as a 'swing' but all polls have shown a significant lean to the RED side.

Noticeably F.A.T.: No, subsonic .22LR is where it's at.


A little short on distance though. If you are sniping PDs off of the 36, you will likely be fine with a 22lr. For your standard doggin' outing, though, you will need something with a little more distance.

My mom used to live next to a sizable prairie dog community in FoCo. There was always something soothing about sitting outside, reading a book and watching the critters interact with each other

HeadLever: For your standard doggin' outing,


For your standard outing, perhaps, but mine involves several towns within a quarter mile of each other. We set up on one and go until they stop popping their heads up (which can be quite a while, they 22 doesn't seem to bother them as much), then hit up the other one. By the time that one is played out the first is active again. Rinse, repeat, wipe hands on pants.

/you might be surprised at the range a 22 has out of a good rifle.
