Default Warning Sign

Someone put this sign on our ticket entry booth. President says he asked for permission. Everyone I know thinks it is an appropriate sign.

I only wish every show or event I attend had one of those signs, but about 5x bigger.

and I have to add, If we had more of all the things on that list, we'd be on our way back to being a great country again!!

Kind of falls under politics and religion, doesn't it?

One man's delight is another man's poison. Or am I going to be thrown out of here because I don't agree (and we have been badly harmed by people spouting that very sort of thing)?

What part of this sign do you disagree with? Can you name these people who have harmed us spouting some of this? I'm trying to understand.

Looks good to me! Yesterday on the local news it was reported that people in the next county have received threats in the mail for having Trump/Pence signs on their lawn. I have two signs on my lawn and stickers on the car and truck.

Yea, so far no one has tried to take down my trump flag but you never know nowadays.
I see nothing offensive on the sign the op posted. I can't take loud music though of any kind,hurts my ears.

Local news reports that there is a man who has had his American and trump signs stolen at least 5 times. Another time, they were set on fire! he has video of the culprits, but law enforcement does not seem too interested in seeking out the perps. Must be Hillary supporters.

Seems like truth, justice, and the American way have gone out the window. If you are anything but white, you can get public assistance. If you are illegal alien, even better yet! If you shoot at a cop, you get off easy. If a cop shoots at you, you get crucified even before the facts come out. Even if you are right, you are not believed.

Bob and all. I had to unscrew it in order to put the Greenhouse plastic over the windows. It is stored inside the ticket booth and the screws and little bits of metal are in a plastic bag ready to go up next year.

Go to a Steam show and my guard for my kids drops, you just know you are surrounded by decent folks. Just about anywhere else I won't let them out of arms reach.

I'm glad you feel your kids are safe. At Alexander Steam Show we put a wrist band on kids under twelve. It is vinyl plastic with a wide section where we put child's first name and parents cell number. I think this is the 4th year we have done this. Did over 700 of them, for 4 day event, this year. To my knowledge we have never had to use this information.

Hello all
There should have been a warning about carbon emitting, timber/coal/oil burning, gas guzzling, fossil fuel wasting engines too. You have to cater for the eco terrorist (is that the right term?) too don't you?

Cheers Scott
