There were no signs posted to indicate this was illegal. Akron should post "Attack Free Zone" signs. My attorney will fight this.

Boy, that ol' Grump can take a punch.

No wonder Tony and Vito didn't find him home this morning. No problem. They rounded up an SUV-full of other elderly potential Hidebeest voters and took them for a lovely day-long ride.

With pride, Grump gladly took a punch for Hillary. I suspect it was an earlier punch that led to his current Democratic delerium.

Well, Grump, at least Bonner wasn't out collecting Hood Tax.

I bet that was a hate crime. No, he just had to try and beat them in love. It is just the way it is Democrats rob you with a gun and beat the crap out of you. Republicans rob you with big business, bank fees, steal our 401ks and then send us to a war to die in. Either way we are getting it.

What a place to be standing with campaign signs. I wouldn't stand in that vicinity for any reason. I guess some folks just don't have any thing better to do with their time. My lord with all of the great entertainment in Akron I would think that they could find something better to do.

Well, at least they can say they took one for the team.

They should have been a couple of blocks further west. That way they would have had the attention of the tens of thousands of folks that flok=ck to the downtown area for their evenin' frolics.

Oh wait a minute, no-buddy goes down there.

Having been wearing my Hillary Button on my lapel wherever I go, and the bumper stickers for Hill on my car, and the Hill sign in my yard, and posting my support on various blogs, I have been run off the road with my two children in my car, been given the finger many times while drivers pass me, and been mistreated continually by cashiers at stores and banks that I frequent--and commenters have attacked me continually as a "wacko feminist", "maturity of a twelve year-old" and so on...I have lost much respect for those in my democratic party who are so adamant in their personal choice for president (Obama) and against my choice for president (Clinton) that I will NEVER look at people with the wide-eyed trust I did so before. I am outraged, offended and disgusted with their behavior.
