Prop S Sign Thieves Consider Larceny a Treat

I happened to be talking to Diane Rose this morning about getting some more CITIZENS AGAINST PROP S Flyers when she informed me that over 80 such incidents had occurred throughout the community.

Halloween was great. Lots of kids. I love seeing them back in such numbers after some pretty lean years. So I looked out on my front lawn the morning after and something looked out of place-I had been TRICKED by the Prop S supporters  who told me that CO-OPS in my city would be a TREAT.  That deception didn't last long.  They couldn't wait to COMMIT LARCENY CITY WIDE.  Our STOP THE POT SHOP lawn sign had been stolen from our (fenced) yard. 

I happened to be talking to Diane Rose this morning about getting some more CITIZENS AGAINST PROP S Flyers when she informed me that over 80 such incidents had occurred throughout the community.

So which is it?  Do supporters of Prop S believe that LARCENY against others is ok when you don't get your way, or, do  they concede that  Drug use increases crime, or are "they the kind that just don't tell"?

This post is outrageous, libelous, and embarrassing. Sir, do you have any evidence of larceny? Are you accusing the Yes on S campaign of Larceny?

I'm glad you agree that such larcenous behavior is outrageous... I couldn't agree more, but be careful of "libelous" ... Do I have any evidence of larceny? Yes. My sign did not leave under its own power. Am I accusing the Yes on S campaign of larceny? No. Do you see the name "Yes on S campaign" in my post? Then I am not accusing them. (The word was "supporters") Thanks for your comment.

For someone that don't attend city council meeting's and hadn't opened his mouth till last week, all of the sudden he has a lot to say !

Glad you clarified things Ron. This is exactly the reefer madness I keep referring to. Isn't the internet great? It allows anyone even uneducated nincompoops like yourself to write anything they want even when it has absolutely no evidence, facts, reason, or even sanity to support it. Good thing most people who read the Patch can tell the difference between hate filled rhetoric such as this post and the truth. I sincerely appreciate you showing your true colors. Anyone reading this banter can tell how angry, hateful and misinformed you are. I recommend that you sir pack up your carpetbag and move out of the way. Your time has passed, your era is over. Vote Yes on S!

LOL, Libi, Did you reallly expect that with your action's bringing light to our city operation's that your sign was going to stay up, Hell they would have brought someone in on O.T. to tear it down. Curious, What did it say ? ed
Libi Uremovic November 03, 2012 at 03:03 AM
one was 20' lowery and the other 2 were 3'x5' yes on s signs...all hand painted on cloth... ...tearing down signs & trying to slander me on the net is the best they can do ed......it's like dealing with 5th graders..... you'd think by now they would have the smarts to devote all of their time to shredding papers and hiding their assets...

Ron - This also happened to my friends and their NO on S sign. Twice. Maybe it's the 18+ year olds who know with a whimper they can get a "prescription" for pot, buy it at a dispensary, mix it with dirt weed and resell to their little underage buddies for a nice little profit. Bet the NO on S signs look cool on their bedroom wall.

Aside form the mass mailer full of reefer madness propaganda and unsubstantiated lies about what Proposition S would do distributed to all the voters in the city, the opposition has started putting up ‘NO on S’ yard signs throughout the community! As the NO signs started popping up, mysteriously the YES signs starting disappearing. The NO on S folks are playing dirty politics, spreading fear, misinformation, and are willing to go to any extent to dupe the voters. We strongly encourage everyone to respect freedom of speech and the right of all voices in the City to be heard. Not only is it wrong to suppress free speech by taking sign down, but it is actually a violation of law. Let’s let fairness, equality, and democracy, drive this election!

Eugene - the pro POOP S side has told so many LIES and has no, none, nada, civil boundaries. CARPET BAGGERS bringing $80,000 dollars of out of town money is SLEAZY and SCUMMY. Pro POOP S is about huge profits, while the NO POOP S is for protecting the public. Let medical patients shop at a pharmacy not at a crime ridden darken POT store. Any questions?

Ron & the No on Measure S people will both be big losers on election day ! On the other hand the two candidates that support cannabis dispensaries (Brian Bilbray & Erika Lowery) will receive enough support from the YES on MEASURE S supporters to seperate themselves from the field & take the two council seats (further infuriating the No people) ! It must be tough to be an old has been who nobody trusts or believes anymore,old politicians don't die they just insult our intelligence !!!

This post is so *ADULT* ... Libi Uremovic 5:36 pm on Friday, November 2, 2012 who is this guy...janney's bar-fly cousin...?

Only a fool rebukes mocker. Age has its advantages. "Thinking" isn't "knowing". Stay out of casinos, improve your odds. Don't blame others for your own unhappiness. We make our own prisons. A clear head begets rational thought.
