Dirty tricks a ‘sign’ of the times

Anyone wonder why so many people are disgusted with “dirty politics”?

A good example is on Dixon Avenue in Rock Falls, just east of the Hennepin Canal. There has been a big Kris Schmidt for Whiteside County Sheriff sign there for a few weeks. Just a few days ago, somebody placed a big Joan Padilla [Democratic candidate for 71st District] sign right in front of it so you can’t see it.

No wonder so many of us have no use for Democrats. In days gone by we could all have our political opinions, discuss the rationally, than vote for our candidates. Not now. It seems the more dirty tricks they can pull the better. Sad!
