Put another Bush-Cheney sign in front of my house this am. We'll do 12-hour intervals -- first one to take an interval gets it. The person who guesses when the sign is stolen wins a Bush-Cheney window sticker.

24 hours this time.

They know you as a likely target.

This time, attach some of the whistler party favors to the base so that you know exactly when it gets lifted, and possibly who did it.

I was thinking about surrounding it with punji pits. ;)

You obviously are a glutton for punishment. Let's make it really controversial. Make the poster in the shape of a cross, put "BUSH" on the left arm of the cross and "CHENEY" on the right. On the vertical portion run "AMERICA" from top to bottom then let's count the number of phone calls you get for:

a. The irreverant use of a religious symbol from the Christian Community.
b. The number of calls from ACLU lawyers rallying to your cause.
c. The ire from the non-Christian community.
d. The calls from the Kerry campaign thanking you for showing that BUSH-CHENEY folks cannot separate church and state functions.

You mean like when I wear this t-shirt to work on the weekends?

Take a small cardboard box, place two bricks in the box. Close and seal the box with duct tape. Obtain a deck of cards, cover with duct tape and place on sign “post.” Take four-six wires of different colors about three feet long and tape them to different locations on your sign and two into the deck of cards that is attached to sign post. Place the other end of the wires into the box and place box in plain view of would be sign thief.

{In your case you may wish to replace bricks with water balloons.}

Yeah, nothing like a visit from the old Bomb Squad to start the day off right! :D

I've thought about putting one of those "protected by Smith & Wesson" stickers on the sign too . . .

Seriously, after this one is stolen, I'll probably start bringing it inside every night.

Or you could sacrifice the night (for the greater good of catching a lawbreaker) and stay up, perhaps with my favored companion (Jack Daniels), and stage a bit of an intervention.

RL, Now that is a great T-shirt. Sort of reminds me when I was in graduate school in the 70s. My wife and I were invited to a lecture given by the head of the department under which I was doing my graduate work . Little did I know that this was a real tree hugging group that wanted to save the whales long before it was fashionable. This group was so anti everything that even the PETA folks would have a hard time qualifying for membership. Well to make a long story short the lecture was on saving furbearering critters and other heretofore unknown endanger species. While I was not wearing a T-shirt like yours, I sat quietly next to my wife who was bundled up in a ski parka with a wolf fur lined hood. Needless to say we were not invited back.

Good thing you were there, or someone probably would have spray-painted "wolf-killer" or something like that on the back of her.

Love to see someone try that with the Colonel around!

Be neat to see what the "ass whippin' de jour" would be.

I don't know when it will get stolen but I'd sure like a Bush sign for my yard. Where did you get it?

The Punji pit is a great idea! Love the t-shirt RL.

You can buy them on the campaign web site.

I believe it is www.georgewbush.com.

You need to rig some of these to your sign. They are not dangerous (as you all know) but I bet it would scare the crap out of someone stealing your sign to hear a few "Pops" as soon as they grab the sign. For the record you should probably mount an NVG camera up so we can see the dirtbag shit his pants.

PM me your addy and I'll mail the prize.

I am not at all surprised, but I am really getting pissed anyway.

You could pepper spray the sign. Let it dry and then when they handle it the powder will get all over them. The fun starts when they sweat.

I am down to one left (although 25 more are on the way). Holding it until my skunk scent arrives.

Then it's ON.

A new one is up, but the boss says I can't set up countermeasures until she talks to the gardener. LOL
