    I live out in a very rural area and yesterday when my son and I went to the republican headquaters for tickets to the convention on Sunday, my son picked up a Bush/Cheney sign he wanted to put in our yard. So we brought it home and he put it in the front yard. Now last night while we were laying in bed we heard a car pull up down by the road and stop, they hit our mailbox with a baseball bat, there was a very loud twang sound, due to the fact that this is a custom made mailbox, by my husband he is a welder/fabricator and the mailbox is made out of solid steel. :happy2: Why you ask? becouse someone stole our mailbox about 5 years ago, so he decided to make one, in case some idiot got the bright idea to hit it with a baseball bat. Now the question is, was this random or Bush related? I am thinking Bush related, because I did notice a couple other mailboxes that had been hit that had Bush signs in their yard as well.

    I'm figuring someone has a very sore arm this morning!!! :rotflmao:


    Oh and no damage to my mailbox!!! :rotflmao:

    Another Kerry plan has backfired today! :cheers2:

    :arabia: Your husband must be psychic to make the mailbox impervious to Kerry supporters!

    Next time we need some armed guards. :2guns:

    If it was Bush related why didn't they steal your sign?

    They were probably afraid they would end up on the news if they did that like the wife of the state congressman here in Colorado. The wife of a Democratic State Congressman was caught on tape stealing the signs of her husband's competitor as well as Bush/Cheney signs. Needless to say her husband is now losing by more than 20 points in the polls!

    Probably because they would have had to walk about 30 feet up my driveway to get to it, it is near my bedroom window and my husband opened the bedroom window and was looking out at them.

    My guess is that it was Random. I've seen this done to many family members I have in various rural areas. Two have had it happen this month, one has Kerry signs, the other Bush.

    It's rediculous. Here, there's a lot of stop signs that have been vadalized with things like 'war,' 'Bush,' and a logo of the pres. with 'one term president' written below it. That's just plain illegal. It's rediculous.
