posters are dangerous

we’re coming up on inauguration day, and as a precuation and security is a huge issue this time around. let’s review.

Prohibited Items

Firearms, weapons of any kind, ammunition (either real or simulated), explosives of any kind (including fireworks), knives, blades, or sharp objects (of any length), aerosol sprays, coolers, thermal or glass containers, mace, pepper spray, sticks, poles, pocket or hand tools (such as a leatherman), packages, backpacks, large bags, duffel bags, suitcases, laser pointers, posters, signs, placards (including supports structures), animals other than guide dogs or service dogs assisting handicapped individuals, strollers, chairs, umbrellas, alcoholic beverages, and any other items at the discretion of the security screeners that may pose a potential safety hazard.

let’s just zoom in on a couple things there…


i can only conclude that pieces of paper of cardboard with writing on them are extremely hazardous to the sign-bearer, facing potential beat-down by his fellow citizens, half of which probably disagree with anything that might be on said poster or sign.

fortunately, they haven’t banned t-shirts. yet.

sign me up for the next thoughtcrime reeducation seminar, please. before i hurt myself or the party.
