    And what load on the shoulders of another man and his backers qualities.

    I hope for his sake he gets this right. If he does, it will be the pull off of the century.

    Aretha Franklin singing in her over-the-top bowhat at the inauguration looked like a tranny at a funeral:)

    It's just too bad the tyrant will walk away scott free. Crime and Punishment is over well unless you are poor and unconnected. Then it's do the crime do the time.

    Tyranny may be dead, but obviously, vandalism of private property is very much alive.

    I do not think Obama would be too proud to know that a person who voted for him was willing to break the law and vandalize someone else's property...if you wish to express your discontent, then do it with your vote...not with a spray paint can on something that does not belong to you.

    Fast fact about graffiti

    • It costs America more than $8 billion per year just to clean up graffiti.
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Tahoma]What happens to a graffiti writer who is caught? Is it really illegal?
    Laws, codes, and ordinances that deal with graffiti vandalism may vary from community to community, but graffiti is illegal. Typically, graffiti falls under "institutional vandalism" or "criminal mischief." While a graffiti arrest may be considered a misdemeanor (a minor offense), more than one can add up to a felony.
    Enforcement of graffiti laws may include any or all of the following:

    • Fines and restitution for graffiti markings.
    • Arrest and imprisonment.
    • Graffiti misdemeanors being stacked to allow for a felony conviction.
    • Parents or guardians fined or ordered to restore property to its original condition or provide restitution.
    The penalty for tagging in San Antonio can be a misdemeanor if damage is less than $500. Committing a graffiti act can also be a felony if damages are more than $500. The degree of the felony depends on the amount of damage done. A misdemeanor includes a fine or time in jail, or both. It is a city ordinance that no one under 17 may purchase "implements of graffiti." This includes spray paint or big tipped markers. San Antonio treats graffiti as a crime, not a prank.


    [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Tahoma]Texas Penal Code ยง28.08 makes it a crime to intentionally or knowingly make markings with aerosol paint, indelible marker or an etching or engraving device on tangible property without consent of the owner. Markings can include inscriptions, slogans, drawings or paintings. Penalties are assessed based on the amount of loss suffered by the property owner and may range from fines up to $2000 and/or confinement for up to 180 days, up to fines of $10,000 and/or confinement for 5 to 99 years.

    think of all the money that could be spent on helping to free this nation from "tyranny" if idiots like the vandal in question would stop writing on other people's walls.

    Not surprising that a gang member and Obama supporter sprayed his ignorance on somebody else's property.

    Problem is, convicted felons are unable to vote. Yet, in an act of tribute, many murderers, rapists, etc., feel compelled to dawn Obama gear before they commit said reprehensible act:

    2008 Mug Shots Of The Year

    How embarrassing for Obama. What about him appeals to the entire criminal community?

    Is any of the stimulus package being directed to crime prevention...or are we embracing the criminals?

    Unsurprisingly typical of your general ignorance... :rolleyes:

    Suffrage of felons actually varies widely from state to state...and this doesn't even take into consideration the relative stupidity (or deliberate insidiousness) of classifying certain offenses as felonious.

    civil disobedience and destruction of others' property are two different things.

    -yes to civil disobedience as described in the link you provided.
    - no to illegal vandalism and destruction of the private property of others as a political tool.

    tyranny was already dead according to the vandal, Obama was elected, Bush was out...so this person was not being "disobedient", he was being destructive in celebration.

    that building was not a legitimate target of oppression or tyranny...it was private property.

    civil disobedience for a political/religious/civil/social cause and vandalism of an innocent and unrelated persons private property are very different things

    You appear to believe the two ideas are mutually exclusive...I disagree.
