Q: how to delete from my favorites

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

the day before the election, four different supporters came to my house, hung these on my door, two knocked, one came at 9pm

I also received a recorded phone call message from obama himself.

hoping first on his list of CHANGE is changing the way we view the right to privacy, who should clean up littering on private property, and soliciting on the phone (I am on the "do not call" registry).


change is good, eh?

    It was great to be in a non-swing phone calls (the do not call list doesn't include political campaigns)...and the only piece of propaganda we got was hand delivered by the candidate (running for state assembly) himself. Love your effect.

    Cool shot. My experience was like John's. Those flyers, etc. are nothing compared to Bush's tapping into the phone calls of American citizens. Let's make ourselves heard with our representatives regarding protections of our rights to privacy. That is how to make a difference, right? Just recycle those babies, Peggy.

    What a great photograph! Hopefully, this new administration will change how it views pollution.
    A note about the "soliciting": I worked as a DNC canvasser. We are specifically excluded from bans on solicitation because we are not solicitors, but political agents. Unfortunately for you, that means that the "do not call" registry does not effect political campaigners, but, at least in my office, we tried not to bother people who posted "no soliciting" signs on their homes.
    Perhaps our new president *will* amend how we view privacy. Hopefully he will at least return our telephone privacy, if not our home privacy. I agree with Warren Mangione: contact your representative. Political change only comes from informed politicians, so let them know your complaint.

    Wow! I didn't get one phone call, nor one person at my door. But then again....Idaho is ALWAYS a Rep. state.

    Thank god its over, I was sick of seeing the garbage tv commercials. I live in a Republican saturated city and the McCain/Palen signs are still flying everywhere. If I were you peggy I would save those puppies they will have historical value one day. I nabbed a Bush/Cheney sign back in 04 and its my equivalent to owning historical German memrobillia from WWII.

    You take great photos but it is a silly, silly perspective that informed and accompanies this image. You are a part of the body politic. This same body politic, as polluted as it has become in recent years, affords you the time to run around with a digital camera without ever really having any real worries. If the price you pay is being hammered with a few phone calls or door hangars...small price...
    It is the same preponderance of unfettered communication, by the way, that allows you to have 72 "Hot Photos" viewed by thousands of people you have never seen and also for phone banks to blast away at you incessantly. So unless you are actively working to limit privacy infringement, you should probably accept you are seeing both sides of the coin and enjoying some of it.

    they are litter bugs and I feel like I have the right to privacy on my own property.....I don't think that's "silly."

    My 2 cents: The onslaught of ads, commercial and political that fill the mail boxes, airways, walls and billboards are enough. We get the message. The constant phonecalls be they political, charitable, commercial or whatever are a real pain and the 'do not call' list is no help. However, it is a small price for the freedom to do it. We each have the freedom and right to 'advertise'. I do strongly object, however, and agree with Wild Thang that coming onto my personal property and leaving flyers, door hangers and other litter, has crossed the line. I don't care if it is religious tracts, a 'buy me now' ad or begging for votes...I did not invite you on my property, so stay off. ;-) You have the freedom to advertise in public, wonderful....and I have the freedom to tell you to buzz off. I put in 40 years of service to this Country to enjoy that freedom and believe me, I do enjoy taking full advantage of it. ;-)
    As for the photo that started all this: WONDERFUL PHOTO!!!
    LUV YA.

    curly I think you got the point. it's coming on my property and leaving trash. I don't think I have to lose the right to privacy in order for them to have freedom of speech? is there a freedom to litter? is obama afforded more rights than me?
    religious or political - if I didn't invite someone on my property they DO NOT have the right to come onto my property and leave trash - or knock on my door !!!
    I don't think I should have to fence my entire yard in order to maintain my right to quiet enjoyment of my property. my dogs go insane when someone does that....I don't care if it's obama, a girl scout or god himself - NO TRESPASSING and NO LITTERING !
    I don't care who exercises what rights they have on their own property or in public, but this land is my land......
