Message of the Day – Sign Gone

The second yard sign supporting Donald Trump for President has disappeared from in front of our home.

The Donald Trump sign used to be next to the day lilies.

Here’s what it looked like:

Needless to say, the sign has been replaced.

Since taking the photo on top during yesterday’s rain, another attempt was made to steal the sign.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera’s medium installed when I tried to take a photo of the rumpled sign.

  1. It shouldn’t of been stolen, but it shouldn’t be in the ROW either.

    All political signs should be on private property as many installed in the ROW get left as waste or are sight problems.

    It’s obvious some kids never grow up.

  2. Wondering where the two knuckleheads are getting their information from when all I can find on Illinois law concerning political signs says: “In Illinois, campaign season never ends. Under 65 ILCS 5/11-13-1, municipalities many not prevent the display of political yard signs on residential property at any time, though they may adopt reasonable restrictions governing sign size.

    Signs may not, however, be placed or held in the designated “campaign free zone,” the area within 100 feet of the door to the polling location (as stated in 10 ILCS 5/7-41).

    Illinois law also specifies that campaign communications (including yard signs) that include the name of a candidate must clearly identify the political committee (or other entity) paying for the sign (see 10 ILCS 5/9-9.5).”

    Where is this law that states that anybody can remove another’s personal property like signs?

    Thou shalt not steal comes to mind; while pondering the clearly unethical and immoral.

    It’s obvious some people are self-righteous fools.

  3. I have seen many Trump signs trampled to the ground.

    I guess that is indicative of what people think of Don the Con.

  4. I don’t care what you think.

    Trampling someone’s free speech into the ground is really stupid!

    You useful idiots all harm yourselves. Not smart enough to see it, though.

    Stupidity will be the death of all of us.

  5. I mean….. it’s obviously in the easement.

    You’re basically asking for it to get taken down.

  6. You are a fool, Moderate. That appears from legislation from NINETEEN-NINETY EIGHT! (1998)

    We are now in the 99th legislative NOT the 90th!

    Besides THAT, since that time the Supreme Court has ruled against all of that falderal.

    In no way shape or form is Cal’s lawn public property!

    Even if it were possible to have a leg to stand on (And you surely do NOT)- It is STILL not legal for ANYONE to STEAL or DESTROY another’s property.

    I don’t care how much you think you are superior to anyone else.

  7. Oh I would report this immediately to Mr. Trump’s office, he will help you!

    and send you more signs I bet… and the robbers just keep on giving.. back don’t they.

  8. It’s definitely in the public right of way, Cal.

    Your own village workers are probably taking them as “litter.”

    Your village undoubtedly has an ordinance saying that political signs can only be placed in the public way for, say, 30 days before the election.

    If it is taken after that day, whatever it is, then you will have a cause for complaint, not before.

    Put it on the “house side” of the sidewalk/treeline and it will likely be left alone.

  9. @Moderate…

    Nice link. The Senate Bill which you cited died on the vine and never became law. That’s probably because it was introduced by an idiot Senator who failed to realize it largely duplicated existing state law which prohibits signs on the public right of way.

    @Nancy Shepherdson… you’re correct about the village but it’s state law that preempts even Home Rule cities (which Lakewood is not). The language in the statute is mandatory they have a duty to remove such signs. Interestingly – and I never knew this – the law also requires that any such signs be set back a minimum of 20 feet from the road or property line. A man’s home may be his castle, but apparently the first twenty feet of his property belong to the cretins in Springfield.

    I’m so glad they are watching this stuff for us rather than cutting waste and corruption and balancing a budget.

  10. The libtards, gnomes, illegals, LGBTs, welfareites, loons, couch taters, low-IQ, IEA minions, gun-grabbers, crooks, crybabies, the unsound and the deluded, constitution shredders, Madigan mooks, Oprah worshippers …. etc., are all getting a bit hysterical and desperate.

    Maybe this is the reason:

  11. I doubt that you know what an easement is, Moderate.

    You seem to think it means you can trespass on Cal’s property and just pluck his personal property anytime you think you are offended.

    That’s called stealing!

    And probably criminal trespass!

  12. Funny how the two Kenneally for State’s Attorney signs have not been touched.

    The three signs were up when the Trump sign disappeared on last weekend.

  13. Because the Trump campaign is putting no money into an Illinois ground game, the GOP is selling Trump-Pence signs for $5.

    So, I guess we just talking about petty theft.

  14. Good reading: **he does not have to show a mastery of foreign and domestic policy details. *

    That pretty much sums up Donald Trump.

    Because why would we want a president that understands foreign and domestic policy?

  15. put Tanglefoot on the sign…can get at hardware store or Walmart online…no hardening glue that sticks to everything. doors, steering wheels…the gift keeps giving to the thieves
