CHANGE FOR AMERICA – October 31, 2008
Did ya’ hear about this? Just as many have said, if these guys hung an Obama effigy, they’d be arrested and the thing would come down. But since it’s of Palin, authorities say it’s okay.
Well, while the Palin effigy hung undisturbed by authorities, two people were arrested Thursday for hanging a life-sized likeness of Obama from a tree on the campus of the U. of Kentucky. U of K Interim Police Chief, Joe Monroe, said the men expressed remorse and told detectives that they decided to hang the Obama effigy after seeing news reports about the Palin effigy in California. They’re being held on a $7,600 bond each. Why so high? You decide. Meanwhile, Palin hangs and those guys are free with no expensive bond.
This is the second time Obama’s been removed while Palin hung. Four students were punished at a college in Oregon for hanging Obama. A woman in Redondo Beach, Calif. took down her Obama decoration after neighbors complained. A Clarksville, Ind. man removed an inflatable Obama doll even though authorities didn’t think it violated any state laws.
Finally, after all the complaining, the two in W. Hollywood, Calif. finally relented and took Sarah Palin down from the noose. Finally. I’d like to see effigies of these two guys hanging around for a few weeks. They should know how it feels.
I hate Halloween. Valentine’s Day is my favorite. Skip the celebration of death and hate. Put your heart into celebrating love and life on Valentine’s Day. Make it the best day of your year. Our country and our children would be much better for it.
Here’s a CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN AND SHOULD WORK TO ACHIEVE.
THERE’S NO MORE TIME TO DO NOTHING.
