Finally… A chance to express your feelings about Donald Trump and get paid!
Three $500 Prizes for the best Trump signs.
As many of you know, I’ve been having a lot of fun lately
expressing my views about our new President on California’s freeways. While freeway posting may not be for everyone, thanks to the First Amendment many other public spaces are! So in an effort to get y’all to pick up a paintbrush, I’m donating this week’s Soros check to offer $500 prizes to the
three best sign pictures I receive over the next month.
Here are the rules: the sign (or signs) must be hand made, posted publicly, and new to the internet. They can be pro- or anti-Trump and will be judged on artfulness of content, placement, and photography.

Deadline is Midnight on Sunday, May 7th
Some tips: Use cardboard. I’ve spent close to half my adult life trying to get people to use cardboard instead of bedsheets for political bannering. Cardboard, particularly when painted white and lettered with a projector, allows you to make signs that are large, legible, sturdy and light for literally pennies. Bigger is better... Funny is best.
I-5 North and South, pedestrian bridge south of Rosa Parks Way. Gap between handrail and fencing makes for a perfect cage for cardboard signs. Posting takes less than a second: like dropping toast into a toaster.
Alley next to the 2800 block of NE Sandy. A fine overlook of I-84 East.
Same fence 200 feet to the west. This gets the westbound traffic.
In front of the Fred Meyer on SW Barbur.
Water Ave. under the Hawthorne Bridge, just past the homeless encampment.
Bike path between E. Roy St. and Bellevue Place. Incredible head-on exposure to I-5 north and south. Borrow the pallet from the nearby homeless camp to deal with the thorns.
Guardrail behind the island at 43rd St. and 5th Ave. NE. Great exposure to I-5 North and South.
Cel tower fencing at Park and Ride lot on 5th Ave. NE, just north of
130th/Roosevelt Way exit on the 5. Steps away from quiet, easy parking... good exposure to northbound 5.
