Chicken shoes

Imagine my surprise when I discovered these shoes standing in my kitchen.  I learned they are a belated birthday gift for my wife.

Yes, those are chickens pictured on the shoes.  I'm told they are called SLOGGERS.  I don't know whether non-chicken themes are available.

Craig Travis tormented by entire team

This is going to blow Rockingham County Commissioner Craig Travis' mind.  An entire high school football team, including the coach, is kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem.

Garfield High School, which is located near Seattle, Washington, has latched onto the protest thing started by Reidsville High cheerleaders and San Francisco 49'ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. 

Craig Travis is going to be having some sleepless nights during football season.

Presidential Chia heads announced

This is pretty big news.  I thought I should get it out there as quickly as possible.  Chia has announced it is producing a limited edition of Presidential Heads.  Heads for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the big sellers, but Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama are also available.

These are really easy to use.  Rub some Chia seeds on the head and water.  Bingo!  You'll soon have a growing bust of your Presidential candidate.  A Donald Trump head would make an excellent choice for County Commissioner Craig Travis.

If we had a K-Mart, the Presidential Heads would be available there.  Too bad K-Mart has gone out of business in Reidsville.  I don't know if Eden has a K-Mart.  

I guess you'll have to contact Chia directly to get some head.

I am waiting for the Ted Cruz head to place my order.

Craig Travis announces endorsements

Rockingham County Commissioner Craig Travis has released his long-awaited list of endorsements for this November's election.  Craig covers every Republican from President Donald Trump to School Board member Brent Huss.  And, of course there's a Berger on the list.

If you have any sense, you will run away from Craig's list and vote for somebody else or don't vote at all.

And, most importantly, keep your liberal mouth shut.

Master Debaters

Trump and Clinton go at it.

Stealing campaign signs is illegal

I just received a notice from Rockingham County Board of Elections Director Tina Cardwell,  Tina wanted to remind me that what School Board member Ron Price did was illegal.  I didn't need reminding, but I guess Tina wanted to be sure I knew Ron did a bad thing.

Here's Tina's notice:

The Board of Elections has no authority to enforce laws pertaining to the placement of political signs.  We do provide to and review Political Sign Laws with Candidates when they set up their committees, and also provide this information to the public in an effort to inform.

Issues concerning the placement of political signs within city/town limits on city/town streets are matters for the city/town.

If the sign is in the ETJ, you should call the respective city/town.  Zoning in the ETJ is controlled by the city/town.

Issues concerning the placement of political signs in the county are matters for the county and should be directed to the Planning and Zoning Department.

Issues concerning the placement of political signs on State maintained roads are matters for the NCDOT and should be directed to your local office of the NCDOT.

Signs unlawfully placed upon the property of another have no legal protection and can be disposed of by the property owner.  This does not apply on days voting is taking place for properties that serve as a voting location.

General Statute 14-384 makes it a misdemeanor to remove lawfully placed signs, including political signs.  Complaints as to an alleged violation of this statute should be directed to law enforcement by the complaining party.

There is also a provision in General Statute 136-32(e) that makes it a misdemeanor to remove lawfully placed signs on right-of-ways.  Complaints as to an alleged violation of this statute should be directed to law enforcement by the complaining party.

Please note 136-32(b).  This section of the statute describes the period as to when it is lawful for political signs to be placed on state maintained right-of-ways.

Clinton-Kaine sign makes appearance

Here it is. Admire it for these are extremely rare in Rockingham County. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a Trump-Pence sign, but getting a Clinton-Kaine sign requires that you know "someone". I'm lucky my wife knows "someone".
I'm told there are a few Clinton-Kaine signs around Reidsville. That may or may not be true. I don't get out a lot, so I can't say for sure. I know the southern part of the county is covered in Trump-Pence signs.
Trump will likely win 60-70 percent of the vote in Rockingham County. I know this because 70 percent of the county voted for a state Constitutional amendment to outlaw gay marriage. Of course the Federal courts shot that down, but it shows you where the county has its head.
This Clinton-Kaine sign is planted on a hill in my front yard. I have it covered by video surveillance in case a Rockingham County School Board member decides to steal it and replace it with a Vernon Robinson sign.
I think it's important to note the fine print on the bottom of the sign indicates it was paid for by a gay-owned business in Greensboro. Thank you, gay-owned business.
