Neighbors

Neighborhood list serves can be a destructive device for uh, being neighborly and free speech.   Some of our enlightened people around the our north valley middle class environs are putting yard signs in their front yards saying no hate is allowed etc.  I ordered 50 yard signs that say resist and a number of my neighbors put them up also.

Some one went on to the list serve wondering where they could get some signs, and all hell broke loose. A micro view of what is happening countrywide.  There are a few people who don't believe in free speech around here and it started heating up, so the list serve commander started moderating comments.  Understandable really.  Sometimes we really don't want to know too much about who the right wing or left wing people down the street are.  In this case, I don't mind.

I put a pile of Resist signs on my porch and folks are stopping by to get them.  Mostly, people are going to be stating their positions strongly in this trump era and I for one want everyone around me to know where I stand.

Mercury: By "resist" do you mean go for a walk?

Good for you and your patriotic neighbors!
