In Response to Re: Fallo Lawn Signs
MaldenSenior: I had no input to this conversation until you compared Pats2012 defense of a sign ordinance to Hitler's rise in power. I stand by my statement that you've made light of a devastating peeiod in history because it's rather quite clear that you DON'T get how he came to be in the position he was. Maybe you should start by looking up the Weimar Republik and go from there. It was nothing to do with cleanliness of a neighborhood and everything to do with the fact that a loaf of bread cost almost a billion USD at the time. Personally, I don't even know how you can begin to compare placing a lawn sign for a political candidate out well in advance of an election (90 days out) as a violation of freedom of speech anyway. Having been places and fought for people who would be fed through an APPLIANCE SHREDDER for exercising their right to protest their government, you're so far off in lalaland with this I can't even begin to fathom your argument. FTR: I never said a dam thing about being annoyed with any of neighbors signs. It doesn't bother me in the least in fact. I only took exception to your invocation of Godwin's Law over the matter. So, why don't you try reading completely before you accuse me of something I never said.

Hellgirl, My suggestion to you is to follow your own advice and learn to read completely and think before you shoot your mouth off.
Whether it is because you are so obviously obtuse not to read what I said, or that you deliberately twisted facts, there is really no point in discussing any thing with you because you continue to misrepresent the truth.
What a ridiculous statement you made to say that I said the rise of Fascism had to do with cleanliness of a neighborhood. Here, you clearly become a liar suggesting other than what I said. What I did say however
is that if Civil Rights were recognized Fascism could never have occurred. You can not deny that.
What don't you understand? I clearly spoke of the rise of Fascism in Europe, not Hitler's rise to power. So to attempt to be insulting you referred to Hitler and the Weimar Republic, which had very little to do with what I spoke of. Again you misrepresented what I had said. When you made those statements you ignored the trends that were occuring throughout Europe at that time. I suggest you expand your knowledge before you shoot your mouth off again. Hyperinflation may have been a catalyst for Hitler's ascent to power in Germany. It does not explain a cultures acceptance of the murder of 12 million.
Oh yes Hellgirl after the pile of bull you have written I honestly can not see you" fighting for people who would be fed through Appliance Shredders for exercising their right to protest" What was that for dramatic affect? Some people may fiind that type of lying to be cheap and trivializing. I personally do.
Truthfully, I don't understand politicians who have nothing better to do than pass silly ordinances for signs in the community. What is next - the sign police? How they can sit around and determine that a resident may not have more than two signs on their lawn really gets me. What is the fine for having more than two signs anyway? And yes it is a limitation on my right to speech telling me how many candidates I may endorse. I believe Malden suffers from some very small and petty people. Unfortunatley many of them are politicians or aspiring to be one.
For the record I did not invoke Godwins Law - you did that. It seems because you read Godwins Law - you believe that applies all the time. You seem to suffer from a foolish consistency of thought.
