Nationwide Action: Sept. 1st - 3rd


In conjunction with ImpeachPAC and After Downing Street, freewaybloggers across the country will be celebrating their rights to free speech by putting up signs calling for the impeachment of George W. Bush. In order to participate all you need is cardboard, paint and something to say. Send pictures of your work to freewayblogger@yahoo.com
The right to post political opinion on public property is one of the most protected rights we have in American Democracy, and it's high time we started using it. Speaking out against a policy, president, or administration you feel is harming our nation is not only your right as an American citizen, it's your duty. And it's a hell of a lot of fun too.

Rock on! Can't wait to see if these things pop up all over the place. I got my town covered. One person in every town? We'll have the whole country impeaching the liar.

Los Angeles here...San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley, Santa Clarita Valley...all freeway close! Damn, I better paint some more signs...

Radiohumper said...

Stockton CA and Livermore. And anywhere in between. I've painted two freewayblogs and a dufflebag full of wheat paste fliers.

Wheee!!!!

I've got lots of cardboard on hand, and will be putting signs in Santa Cruz County and/or Santa Clara County (aka Silicon Valley). I'm considering promoting ActBlue with the signs, since we've already elected about as many Democrats as we can from N. Cal. Time to start voting with our wallets to help candidates elsewhere in the country. Something along the lines of ...

"Had enough Bush? Vote with your wallet. ActBlue.com"

geetee said...

ActBlue sounds like a good thing to promote, but it would be kind of nice to have some kind of unified message this weekend (i.e. "Impeach") Nothing stopping you, of course, but then again, nothing stopping you from posting ActBlue signs next week and the week after that and the week after that...

My 2 cents, and worth every penny.

Hi From Scottsdale, AZ ,Freeway - looking forward to putting signs up here in the red part of the country.

I'll be posting small IMPEACH handbills around Orlando, FL this weekend using environmentally friendly, homemade cornstarch glue. Stay tuned for pics!

"Impeach" In Bellingham, WA over I-5 both north and south. Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Thursdays signs stayed up 8 hours for 10's of thousands to see!

I left about 1,000 "9/11 Faudulent Notes" bills at resturaunts, gas stations, National Parks and hotels on our recent 2,500 mile trip from Denver to Portland, OR! The best is watching from a distance as unsuspecting republicans pick them up realizing what they are proceed to tear them up in a huff!

This is pure genius! Great work, and I hope it catches on.

But what will you do if Bush is impeached and Cheney becomes president? You think we have it bad now...

microdot said...

I wish I was in the USA so I could be putting up my signs...as it is, I'm puttting some up here in the Dordogne and linking this website on my blog!!!!
WORST PRESIDENT EVER! WON'T SOMEONE GIVE THE LITTLE JERK A BLOWJOB SO WE CAN IMPEACH HIM!!
BUCK FUSH!!!

You might also want to consider adding either ITMFA or www.ITMFA.com -- check that site out and see what you think. However, I agree that a predominantly consistent campaign would be most effective, and might even garner a little media attention. Bravo! Now, fly my little monkies, FLY!

I'm afraid I'm too much of a wimp to post on public property, but how about private property? My back fence (which for two years has tallied the soldier's deaths) faces city hall, the police station and the catholic church. Can you use a support team of "community" bloggers?

Shrink in SF

truthnow said...

I'm going for the "OCT.5 Worldcantwait.org" sign. I have 4 so far which will be up around Los Angeles for the holiday traffic. This is a national protest day. More of a goal than just "Impeach". Let's try to get people thinking of actively protesting and implanting this calender date in their head. Even just a sign that says OCT.5 will be hard to ignore.

JaneQPublic said...

You are an inspiration to true patriots and lovers of democracy everywhere in this once-great nation!

kittyh1 said...

In the redneck mountains of AZ they would need a tranlator to read the sign. But, we who are to old and infirm to do this cheer you one. There is hope for our country as long as there are still people with convictions and the energy and courage to display them we will survive. I am waiting by youtube for videos!

John Good said...

Congrats on making it national, man! I clicked over here from Huffington Post. I've had you linked for over six months, great job!

I hope you all go fuck yourselves! Bush is a damm good president!

Kansas signing in. Hopefully not the only one.

Oh, and Hahahaha on the person who's still cheering for Bush. Good president of the "Drive Up the National Debt till We Drown" club, sure. You're such a card to still defend him!

I heard of this months ago, so glad to find a website of it.
I haven't hung any freeway signs yet, but since 2004 I have been writing messages on the back and side windows of my car. I call them car-boards and mobile messages.
Naturally, I get all kinds of responses; the usual thumbs up, thumbs down or finger up, but the ones I like to see are those that want to read it, but don't want to be seen reading it. Funny how all the fingers come from 30 - 45 year old white males, once in a while an Ann Coulter. But the thumbs ups, smiles and compliments come from every age group, male and female and across all racial lines.
One guy at a warehouse where I was picking up a bedroom set kept scowling in my direction. I thought, "uh huh, one of them." Imagine my surprise when he came over just as I was ready to leave and said, "Lady, I couldn't agree with your sign more, but most everyone here supports bush, so I just keep quiet. People need to hear that (my sign) more and more. Keep up the good job".
I usually change them weekly or so. I've had **Support Our Troops - Impeach Bush Save Our Military - Fire Rumsfeld** up for a while now, but I will leave it on for this weekends movement. I'll even get off my ass and go hang a sign too.
Rock on, true Patriots

car-boarder said...

BTW - (car-boarder here), I'm always looking for new slogans or sayings, if any of your creative juices are flowing.
Some of my favorites:
Bush & the G.O.P. - consistently getting it wrong since Jan. of 2000.
Who Would Jesus Bomb.
Our Constitution Trumps Your Bible - Period.
Illegal War Torture Hubris Corruption Welcome to GW's America.
Alito's In! Buy stock in coathangers now!
Those who give up liberty in the name of safety, deserve neither.

How about "George W Bush gives plants a bad name" ?

Hey, I'm putting up signs this weekend (Labor Day). Hope you haven't taken up the good spots!

One cleverly double-sided sign went up this morning in Pacifica, CA on the Paloma/Francisco overpass. One side will hopefully entertain some of the weekenders heading up to Half Moon Bay. The other side is for the foot traffic on the pedestrian bridge. Happy Labor Day!

Anonymous said...

Here are some sign ideas:

"Bush hates white people too."

"At least Bush had an exit strategy for Vietnam."

"I miss Clinton."

"Impeach Cheney first."

Draw a cup of coffee with steam coming off of it and write around it: "Wake up and smell the fascism."

car-boarder said...

Thanks to all who wrote suggestions, all are good ones, specially the coffe cup one.
Have a happy and safe weekend everyone.

We will not go quietly into the night....unless we're hanging up freeway signs....then we'll be going vewy, vewy qwiet!

geetee said...

hey car-boarder, have room for a couple more?

IMPEACHMENT: it's not just for blowjobs anymore!

God is not a Republican

Jesus was a Liberal

The Constitution is NOT "Just a God damned piece of paper" -GW Bush

"'Course it'd be a lot easier if I wuz the Dictator!" -GW Bush

War, torture, greed, corruption and hate are the new Republican values

9/11 was an inside job

You want more war?
Draft Republicans

and so on and so on and so on... :o)

Reno, NV., is in with one sign over I 80 eastbound, and soon another over I 80 westbound. "Keep on truckin"

You all are beautiful!

You claim that this behavior costs nothing to take down. It costs each community a lot of money.You have no right to put up political messages in public right-of-ways. If I were to put up the same type of sign over a bridge that said "Liberals Are Idiots", would you demand that it be taken down? I know I would. The point is, no matter what your message, or who puts it up, it is not legal. More than that, it costs each taxpayer a lot of money to keep removing these signs. Think about it. It is obvious that you really don't care about the cost to the taxpayer as long as your own agenda gets publicity. I think that's pretty selfish and truly Un-American.
