Texas Cops Confiscate Anti-Republican Yard Sign After Threatening Property Owner


Mod: It looks like a tender Texas snowflake named Sid Miller got his feelings hurt.

Texas Cops Confiscate Anti-Republican Yard Sign After Threatening Property Owner (Law & Crime link): A political yard sign in Central Texas was confiscated by local authorities last week after it upset the feelings of a Republican Party official in the Lone Star State.

The sign in question was homemade and didn’t offer support for any particular candidate. Rather, the sign–hand-painted in red, white and blue–featured an elephant with its trunk up a woman’s skirt. The woman in the painting had word bubble with the word “Help.” The sign was captioned, “Your vote matters.”

Other signs in the same yard promoted Democrats running for state and local offices, including gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez, agricultural commission candidate Kim Olson, U.S. House candidate Julie Oliver and U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke.

Current Texas Agricultural Commission Sid Miller took note of the sign and posted about it on Facebook. In a post, Miller made an unsubstantiated allegation that the sign was an attempt to depict the daughter of Supreme Court nominee and alleged attempted rapist Brett Kavanaugh.

After Miller’s Facebook post drew attention to the sign, Republicans called for Stanford’s arrest.

Local police then visited Stanford’s home. No arrest occurred but the sign was taken by police. “Police told me to remove the sign or they would take it and would arrest me,” Stanford said. “So I let them take the sign.”

Mod: This could be yet another case where a dirt dumb Trump supporter has claimed that the First Amendment is a threat to the United States Constitution. Oh, and it isn't like Hog Eatin' Sid doesn't have some legal problems already.

Abbott Says Allegations Against Miller Warrant Probe (KUT.org link): Texas Gov. Greg Abbott believes allegations that Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller misused state funds when he took two out-of-state trips a year ago should be investigated, a spokesman for the governor said on Thursday.

“The governor believes these allegations of misuse of taxpayer dollars warrant a thorough investigation by the Texas Rangers," said John Wittman, a spokesman for Abbott.

On Wednesday, the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed that the agency's Texas Rangers are conducting an investigation into whether Miller abused his position as commissioner by having the state pay for two trips — one to Oklahoma and another to Mississippi, in February 2015. Media reports have indicated Miller may have traveled for personal benefit.

Mod: Lock his big butt up.

  9. Trump said soybean prices have gone up. They're near decade-lows.

    President Donald Trump claims US soybeans have largely held up against his trade war with China. But tariffs have pushed prices to lows not seen since 2008.

    In reality, soybean prices have fallen more than 12% since China placed a 25% import tax on the legume to retaliate against the Trump administration. That country is the largest soybean customer in the world, accounting for more than half of global imports in 2017.

  11. The Trump Republican Party is the Beast.

    “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

    And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies”

  16. When the people continued their complaining, God afflicted them further, this time with fiery serpents; many Israelites died. Moses prayed to God on the people's behalf, and God instructed him to fashion a serpent and place it on a pole, so that anyone who was bitten might look at the serpent and live. Num 21:9
