I came home from college this weekend and someone stole the Bush signs my folks set around our home. On Saturday I went to Republican HQ and picked up more signs, put the signs around my house and then went to work...four hours later I came home from work and someone had trashed and ripped up my signs in daylight. I fixed the signs I could and put them back out this morning and then went to church...now someone has driven over my signs with a bike.

I am so pissed at these Dems right now. You never see Republicans acting this way.

Set up a boobie trap.

Lay in wait.

"Apprehend" the vandals.

Hmmm.....look for a kid on a bike. That belongs to the SUV with skerry stickers all over it.

And in broad daylight, too.

You're looking a bit peaked. I think you should call in sick tomorrow.

And then sit by the living room window watching your signs.

React as you wish when the tresspassers tresspass.

Run over by a bike?...

Go to Home Depot, pick up some lumber (Need some wood?), cement, and metal stakes. Set the stakes where you want the sign, where it will be tempting to run over with a bike. Superglue the sign to the wood. Screw the wood into the stakes up something fierce. Try to get it done quickly, and try to make it look like it's a regular sign, but with bigger poles. If you have to, prop a tent over it or something. Then, hopefully they'll try to run it over with a bike again.

Mmmm, boobies.

Yeah, people suck. You need to be careful with traps, just pick up a couple signs next time you are there and keep putting them up. Put one in your window as well or up high where someone can't get to it.

Stakeout man. No matter what it takes - find that POS.

Back in 2000 up in Seattle someone stole my signs after about an hour the day before the election, I was so pissed I took my roommates truck out at about 3am and stole every sign I could find in Magnolia. Must have gotten about 20-25 gore signs to my one Bush sign. Used them for firewood over the winter.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 11:17:25 AM EDT
I like your ideas guys. I think for starters I am going to put more and More signs out....then I am going to build some big signs and pound them into the ground with fence posts. And then I called my uncle and he is going to let me use his deer cam, and I am going to set it up on my mail box with a Bush sign by it and maybe I can take a picture of these punks for the cops.

My wife and I got back from a 5 day trip to Florida today. When we found our car in the airport parking lot the magnetic Bush bumper sticker was gone. Fucking Democraps!!!

<sarcasm>I guess freedom of speech only applies to cetain people. We, as republicans, must hold back our thoughts. Obviously are ideas are a danger to people everywhere. So dangerous in fact, we must be silenced; In secret no less.</sarcasm>

I guess they really don't believe in their cause. Else, they might confront you face to face on the issue of your signs. It would be better for them to debate with you and have you join their cause and put up their signs rather then just silence you. I guess they have no faith.

Ideas, ideas...

Lie in wait for the next one, and effect a citizen's arrest, maybe?
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 12:17:05 PM EDT
Put up a sign beside it with something like "Smile for the camera". They might think you are recording the sign...maybe, I mean come on, the are voting for Kerry, sheesh.

Hey, you should read my thread from 3 days ago. Mine have been stolen/replaced 2 times. Then all 4 were stolen on Thursday night & my Jeep tire was cut! I have now replaced said signs with 10 more & installed motion detectors. Told the RNC HQ here in town, they said its been happening all over the place. GOOD LUCK!

My 2nd sign was stolen last night. Stakeouts aren't an option, but staking the signs down is. I'm driving some stakes under the sign and tying it down with Firewire fishing line. Then I'm stringing more some beer cans to the sign so when the little shits yank my sign the cans will rattle and alert my trusty Republican friend:

Go to wally-world and get one of the paintball grenades. Put it between on f those double signs and pull the pin. Whenever it gets hit or pulled/ripped up it should be enough pressure to release the plug in the grenade.


Note: most of these "grenades" are rubber tubing that have been over filled. Pull the pin and a plug is exposed. Whenever the grenade recieves a shock the plug falls out and the tubing contracts squeezing out the paint.

Get 20 or more Bush signs and put them up in front of everyone house.

I like to see who ever doing this to Bush signs, shot or ran over with car.

Link Posted: 10/24/2004 12:41:33 PM EDT
See if putting an NRA sign next to it helps.

I think the "Smile for the camera!!!" idea is the best so far.

For every sign they screw up put up 2.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 2:25:15 PM EDT
go to your local gun store.. buy some peper spray. put your signs up and then spray the hell out of them before you leave or go to bed. Unless they're wearing gloves, well.....

Link Posted: 10/24/2004 5:03:16 PM EDT
Someone here in NoVa. just had all his kerry signs stolen, they replaced 'em with Bush signs; TP'd the house, and wrote pro Bush stuff all over the cars and driveway with shaving cream. It was on the local news...I know I shoulnd't have, but it was very hard not to smile at that.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 5:14:27 PM EDT
Put up another sign:
"Every time someone vandalizes my Bush signs, I donate $50 to Bush/Cheney 04"

Then see who gets even more pissed about it.

OK - here is an easy one to explain - no malice intended on your part.

Get the replacement signs - lay face up on grass - use a heavy duty staple gun on the top and sides - the kind that stick thru the back about a 1/2".

CAREFULLY install the signs. Anyone who tries to grab one will leave a blood trail.

If ask why there are staples in your signs, tell them these replacements were salvaged from a rally and had been stapled to sheet cardboard.

+1 I thought so, too.

ETA: I'm for the stakeout idea, or perhaps a large mean-ass dog. Or both

Lie in wait and ambush the mother sucker, then do a citizen's arrest.

Otherwise the camera idea is cool. Lots of great ideas in here

Get some barbed wire, it's cheap $20 for 1/4 mile. Put up a perimeter around the signs.

Or put a sign that says "Stealing is subject to gunshot wound"
Put empty shells around the sign and put red splats on the road.

Coat them in Vaseline. I'm serious. It works.

I had a judicial candidates wife do that to all her hubby's signs after so much theft. Nobody touch them after she coated them.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 6:31:27 PM EDT
Pour some invisible but caustic substance on the signs.

Acid of some type; I don't know where you would get it. Silver Nitrate does cool things to the skin; I dont' know where you would get that either.

Also, get some pins, cut them to a shorter size, and paste it all over the stake.

You should be more ticked off about the whole thing that you are. If I were you, I'd want the bastards to bleed from what they're doing.
