I’ve heard of lots of incidents of people calling the police over fast food orders, but this is the first one I’ve seen where the person doing the calling actually was a cop. This happened right here in Arizona.
I designed this advertisement by request for an organization that was opposing an expansion of the public transit system in Grand Rapids Michigan (after discovering that it would be cheaper and more fuel-efficient to just give all the riders free cab rides).
The creators of the campaign wanted to put the ad on a billboard, but the billboard company rejected the ad as disparaging. But, when they submitted the ad to appear on the bus itself, free speech and fairness regulations forced them to accept it.
I snapped this photo while driving by the other day. Rodney Glassman, Arizona candidate for US senate, has an unfortunate name. Even more unfortunate is the fact that his center-aligned campaign signs are easily-vandalized to appear left-aligned.
As of this writing, Basil MarceauxDotCom is polling apparently polling around 1%, for the gubernatorial election in Tennessee, which means he’s not beating the margin of error, but it also means that, when pollsters asked people who they were voting for, somebody said Basil MarceaxDotCom (or just Basil Marceax).
In his own words:
“I’m Basil Marceaux.com, the Republican candidate for governor. I’d like to recall all permits and registrations for guns. Everyone carry guns. If you kill someone though, you get murdered, you go to jail. And, uh, I’d like to put… plant grass or vegetation across the state or any vacant lot, and sell it for gas, so we can use it, use it for our expenses.
Also I wanna remove all gold fringed flags from the state, and fly the real flag with three stripes. I also want to stop traffic stops. Set it up like the Supreme Court ruled in Knowles versus Iowa – you can’t find innocent car, you can’t look. I want youse all to vote for Basil Marceaux. I want you to say a pledge of allegiance to a republicdom in the morning when you come out, and we all pray to God… and say Amen… and… everyone have a nice day. And I’ll see y’all at the polls.
