Joe USer: "When thieves...see pro-Democrat yard signs they automatically assume that the subdivision is filled with retards and half-wits"When they see Republican signs, they no longer need to assume.
feckingmorons: Well you can't really argue with that.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Nice.
Mentat: Republican: When thieves see a Democratic yard sign, they assume the neighborhood is filled with ignorant, anti-gun retards.Democrat: And yet, despite choosing different paths in life, you and I both ended up living in the same neighborhood, occupying the same basic socioeconomic status. What does that tell a thief?Republican: That my guns are protecting both of our houses.Democrat: ...
dickfreckle: Also, people who break into homes for a living aren't really going to understand the subtleties of the homeowners choice in a candidate, presuming they even know who the candidates are. A master art thief probably would, but we're talking about random punks here. Meth-heads seldom stop to ponder what a homeowner's political leanings say about the homeowner's character. People in the politics tab might, but I'm fairly certain none of us are robbing houses when we're not trolling.This is the dumbest excuse for a dick move I've heard in some time.

What does that tell a thief?Republican: That my guns are protecting both of our houses.Democrat: ...People should know that a sh*t-ton of liberals are armed. It's my second Amendment too, you half-wits. We just don't celebrate guns as the second coming of Christ, or as compensation for our dicks. Nor do we use our respect of guns and the right to bear them as a front for belonging to a strictly partisan group purporting to represent us when the guy they pick has actually signed a form of a weapons ban.Not a gun nut, and don't really do the gun porn thing, but you'd better believe I know how to use one. Force into my house and I'll kill you./badassoverhere.jpg//ITGmagazine.jpg
Generation_D: I thought criminals looked for the Republican yard signs as evidence of who had the nicer stuff to steal.I know you're kidding, but:This country is roughly 50/50 Republican or Democrat. You have to figure that for every ghetto chick that votes for the misnomer "Obamaphone" there's a some working-class white guy voting for the flag and Jesus. That leaves the rest of us.I have all the same sh*t all my Republican neighbors have. A smart thief won't target yard signs - he'll target an exclusive neighborhood. Which I don't live in (just a regular neighborhood). But I do have the same plasma and laptops my Limbaugh acolyte neighbor has.This just in: Being liberal isn't just for "welfare queens" anymore. Actually, it never was. The idea that liberals think the way they do because they want handouts is arguably the most patently offensive canard the GOP pushes.
smells_like_meat: Accurate assumption. However, since the political party of most burglars is Dem., its a wash. They eat their own young.My "hood" is full of R and R yard signs. Not one Hussein for satrap sign to be seen. Tells me that I have a neighborhood of stable, intelligent, working, gun owners. Warm and fuzzy is how I feel.Vote early, vote often. Its the Chicago way.
