political harrassment happens

The back end of my parents' car got smashed in. We didn't know how on earth this happened. Then someome suggested that it was their Kerry/Edwards bumpersticker that someone was after. The thing had indeed been ripped off. Gosh, what's happened to our democratic rights to vote as we see fit? This is certainly not going to get GWB our votes. I am really pissed off.

You're not kidding SD. This is childish, undemocratic, and idiotic. It actually makes me feel a little less guilty about a screw-up I committed last week. I didn't do anythng *intentionally* wrong. I made an "Aspie mistake", something we Aspies do naturally. We are notorious social misfits who make alot of mistakes socially. My good friend NBCrusader is also an Aspie, and I have alot of respect for all of the amazing things he's overcome to have the life he has. Congrats, NBC!

I get heckled all the time at school because of my support for Kerry/Edwards. From the typical "JOHN KERRY SUCKS!!!" to the stupid "THERE ARE NO DEMOCRATS IN THE SOUTH!!" Uh huh. Bull. I try to keep a cool head and ignore it (what's the point in arguing with people who a. won't listen b. don't have a clue what they're talking about). I'm shocked that my car hasn't been vandalized yet. Every day as I walk out of school I inspect my car to make sure it hasn't been purposely damaged.

My parent's Kerry-Edwards sticker was ripped off of their car. And signs supporting Kerry-Edwards have been stolen throughout my parents neighborhood. The police have been driving in and out of the neighborhood to prevent further problems. Not one Bush sign has been lifted. I think it is a shame that this is going on.

Around here there's vandalism of both Bush and Kerry signs. Some bush signs were actually burned. As much of a temptation it is for me to rip the Bush signs (yes i admit it it's a temptation!) I don't do it because i think of how i would feel if someone stole my kerry/edwards stuff. It's just stupid and nothing is accomplished.

U2democrat, an Aspie is someone with Asperger's Syndrome. It's a mild form of autism. It's basically a "nuisance". We basically are "social misfits" who have trouble fitting in any of these nice, neat boxes people want to put us in. I'm an idealogical oddball. I'm a practicing Catholic and a liberal. Some people claim that's incongruous. I couldn't disagree more, because that is what I am.

Yeah, we've had harrassment of both Democrats and Republicans around here. There have been reports of both getting their signs ripped off. It's all so fd up. What about our rights?

Thanks for clarifying!

There's no such thing as a social misfit here at interference.

I am so sorry to hear about the vandalism and sign pilferage that has happened to you, Verte and MVD. This does not help Bush's cause. Ripping up and burning Bush signs does not help Kerry, either.

I was thinking of putting a Kerry bumper sticker on my car...until it got egged two nights ago. If it got egged for no apparent reason, imagine if I'd put the sticker on the car!

Dang Diane, that's horrible!

As I was driving to church this evening I saw a man putting an obviously bent up Kerry/Edwards sign back in his yard, and several that i usually see were missing. Stupid people.

I believe in no other law as strongly as I believe in the first amendment. I love Kerry but I love the right to vote and speak your opinion more.
