A Sign of the Times? NOT!

These photos were at least third-hand by the time I came across them … but so what! They happen to illustrate quite nicely some very good things that are happening in this country.

First we have a sign that appeared the day before Barack Obama was scheduled to make a campaign appearance in Hendersonville, North Carolina.

That’s a pretty red part of the state and, obviously, the owner of the real estate company was not an Obama fan.

However the tone of the sign didn’t sit too well with many of the locals who turned out in force to make their feelings known ... loud and clear.

I suspect that the owner of Land of the Sky Realty, one James Edney, may have come to realize by now that it’s better for business if he doesn’t go to the trouble of flaunting his bigotry.

You can't make it out, but one of those good folks is holding a sign saying our president-elect is really Hawaiian. (I know, I know ... but we’ll gladly settle for “Hawaiian-at-heart.”)
