Whereas filling a stop sign with bullet holes is a Jebus-constitution-protected RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS.

BEAR ARMS.

BEAR ARMS.

"I just thought this was different,'' he said. "No one's going to not stop because of the sign."

More likely, people will continue to ignore the stop sign.

Weird that hotwing would post a comment like that considering he thinks Democrats are any different than Republicans. Oh wait.

I wonder how long it was there before someone noticed.

I guess you missed the last Beck update. Being antiwar and against rash invasion is a conservative view now that the blah man called for military action in Syria. You are easily 5 days behind on the narrative.
 
2013-09-13 10:03:58 AM
UGH.

I wonder if the person doing this is the asshole who went through the 14th street area and turned all the "One Way" signs into "One Love" signs with a sticker.

NO, YOU MORON, THEY SAY ONE WAY FOR A REASON AND IT'S BECAUSE TOURISTS ARE IDIOTS SO PLEASE DO NOT INTERFERE WITH THEIR ALREADY BAD SENSE OF DIRECTION.
 
2013-09-13 10:03:59 AM
i guess defacement is defacement and all, but this isn't THAT big of a deal.  If someone disagrees with enough, they'll scrape it off, or a workman will notice it when they check the signage periodically and fix it. 

I dream of a living in a world in which something like that is he biggest annoyance in my day.

For fair consideration, the submitter does establish a valid point: conservatives would never condone vandalism, even when done to advocate a message with which they agree.

meh - the SIGN wasn't vandalized. someone simply ADDED a sign to the post. if that is "vandalism", then everyone who has ever had a yard sale or lost puppy/family member in the history of ever is guilty of "vandalism".....

Gene Mirus sounds like a guy who has studied art and learned the skill of bullshiatting your way through a critique when you're hung over and showing what you put together in ten minutes while drunk the night before.

"Stop all way" was grammatically incorrect and sounds vaguely foreign, to be honest.  I salute the brave American patriot who saw fit to correct this injustice.  USA!  USA!

It's different in big tourist towns like our nations glorious capital.  One or two lost and befuddled Argentine tourists are not a big deal by themselves, but when you pile up enough lost people it can reach a certain critical mass.  DC hit it a long time ago.

Oh sure. But you'd be silly to imply that Washington, DC doesn't get a higher percentage of tourists than most other cities in the U.S.

Also, our street grid confuses people who have to deal with the diagonal avenues cutting across the grid and leading to weird spots of one-way streets.

"Vandalizing"?

Welcome to Derpville, USA, where words mean whatever you wish they did.
 
2013-09-13 10:16:59 AM
In the arts district of Fort Worth there are "No Trucks" signs on almost every side street. They have pics of box trucks to which somebody added gun turrets on the top. Not sure what the message is, could be "no gun trucks," or "no trucks because there are military vehicles here." Kinda cool though.

TOURISTS ARE IDIOTS

There are two kinds of tourists in Washington DC: the kind that use the left side of a Metro escalator to walk, and the kind that use it to stand.

The first kind are welcome, and are to be forgiven (for a time) their natural confusion by the city's layout and taxi system.

The second kind need to self-deport.

The worst are the ones that hold their child's hand, and the little kid is standing on the left.

Because damn it, I can't yell at a six-year-old.

"Cool," said a laughing Carol Hilliard, who was in her yard with her Doberman, Chloe, when the sign was pointed out to her. "It's pretty creative."


Changing one letter on a stop sign is 'pretty creative'?  If she's that easily entertained, she should invest in a bug-zapper.  Hours of fun for the whole family.
 
2013-09-13 10:47:27 AM
If I see a sticker on a stop sign, I always peel it off, whether it says Stop War or Stop Abortion. A clean road is a happy road is a road more fun to drive on.
