Freewayblogs Held Hostage!

I recently received this photo along with the following:

"Dear Moonbats,

Thank you for the fun you've provided me with. It reminds me of the fun I had watching your boy Clinton play "Find the Weenie" with the office help.

Seriously, does your hatred of Bush override your self interest in not being turned into radioactive glass by 10th Century thugs? Think about it.

By the way kiddies, all the signs I removed are ILLEGAL and a hazzard to the travelling public.

Regards, Juggle"

To which I responded thus:

"Dear Fellow Patriot,

I salute you for taking the time and effort to take down those signs. Tens, even hundreds of thousands probably saw them before you and wanted to take them down but just kept driving. Believe me, we have far more in common with each other than we do with those who may sympathize with us politically and yet do nothing.

I rarely get to chat with the people who take down my signs, so indulge me here a bit if you will.

Why was the Clinton impeachment "fun" for you? I saw it as something of a dark chapter in this nation's history, both in the original offense and even moreso in its prosecution. Granted, it took someone like Clinton to do what he did in the Oval Office, but it took folks like the House Managers, and assumedly you, to make sure everyone in the world knew about it. In certain respects, the impeachment was more harmful to this nation than September 11th: at least then we were being attacked by our enemies.

Not being turned into glass is precisely why I'm doing what I'm doing. Your side needs to do a better job of convincing the rest of the world that the U.S. occupation of Iraq is an appropriate response to the events of September 11th. Even just finding some WMDs would help... hell, plant them if you have to. As it stands now though all we're doing is making enemies, and until you find a way of securing our borders entirely, more enemies is not something we can afford.

You're right when you say the signs are illegal... in North Korea. If political dissent really bothers you I suggest you move there. As for their presenting a "hazzard", anyone who can't simultaneously operate an automobile and read the word "Impeach" shouldn't be behind the wheel anyway.

The signs knew when they went out there that they were on a suicide mission. Do whatever you want with them: they'll never talk.

Yours Truly, The-Guy-Putting-Up-The-Signs"

Poor Juggle must have some serious issues that he/she/it is that threatened by some signs.

Poor little signs, they are brave fellas willing to sacrifice themselves for their country and we must not let them have died in vain.

Keep up the good work, Freewayblogger!

I saw a big "Impeach Bush" sign recently on a rural road here in KY. It was on private property, so it would be THEFT if this guy took it from there!

Hey, Scarlet. That IMPEACH sign on the top of the pile is one of mine! Another proud moment for me. I wonder if I could negotiate with this guy for the release of his hostages. Nah, I'll just make some more so he can stay busy. I really hope he doesn't torture the signs, though. Hey Mr. Juggle. Please don't hurt the signs. Recycle them. It's good for the environment. Hee hee.

Acts of terrorism around the world have increased since 3-18-03.
The threat of terrorist attack inside the US is the highest since 9-10-01.
Warnings on 8-6-01 and before were ignored.
There were no WMDs.
We were not welcomed as liberators.
There was no yellow cake uranium.
The aluminum tubes were not for atom bombs.
Iraq was looted while Rumsfeild stood by like a dummy.
The troops were sent in without adequate armor even though it was available.
Improvised explosive devises are the most deadly weapon the insurgents have but again Rumsfeild was caught napping.
2258 American soldiers killed in a senseless war over OIL. 1000s of civilians killed.
100s killed in NOLA because the levees failed, warnings of failure were ignored.
1000s left without food or water because of incompetence, what went right?
Tax cuts for the wealthiest, poverty increasing. Schools worse than ever. Price of gas double.
Cuts to Medicare, people can’t get medicine, attempt to steal Social Security funds.
Corruption at the highest level in the White house, Senate and House of Representatives.
Smeared McCain, Kerry and others; called the Constitution a ‘piece of paper’. Rude, crude and lewd.
Warrantless spying, searches; Bin Laden been forgotten; dots not connected. Crime closer to home.
Surpluses spent, size of government increased, deficit higher than ever.
When Clinton lied no one died.

That's awesome. Your letter is one of the best responses to a winger that I've ever read.

I too salute the man who takes them down. He gives me something to do. Activism rules!

But wasn't Clinton playing hide the pepperoni?

Have you heard about HR 333? I urge you and your readers to take a few minutes to look at:


It's a list of the 25 most recent comments made by real Americans participating in an online poll/letter-writing campaign concerning the impeachment charges recently filed against Vice President Cheney, which are now being evaluated by the House Judiciary Committee. Comments can be sent to elected representatives and local newspapers at your option. The participation page is at:


Since this campaign began, some members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors, in part due to hearing from their constituents. Has yours? Make your voice heard, and let others know!
