>Too bad those yellow signs don’t have spell check

>Not satisfied with merely defeating the levy, this Martin Street resident is now taking on Washington as well (or maybe “DC.” means Darke County, as Kurt points out). Pretty soon you’ll be seeing signs like this all across the fruited plane.

Update: Patrick forwards another unfortunate sign error. [language warning]

    >Did Don Wright move into town?More moronic nonsense. It's like someone reading an e-mail forward and thinking, "if only there were a way I could shove this dumb ass thing in everyone's face, even if they don't have a computer."

    >This guy has more money in the sign then he would have just payed the school tax. This is ignorant!!!!!!!

    >You people are the morons and hypocrites, if this sign was used to support the levy it wouldn’t be on here making fun of a misspelled word. Have you ever heard of human error? No, I guess not, since you are all probably school board robots!

    >I think the sign is referring to Washington DC. Nobody can argue the point about DC being filled with liars. You pro tax hike people need to get over yourselves. Get a tissue.

    >11:58 and 12:09 … if you put a big sign in your front yard and screw up an easy word, I'll probably make a joke about it (whether you're for the levy or against).But – wow – those previously-aggressive anti-levy people are suddenly very defensive. :-0

    >Dearest No pity, I would like to challenge your assertion that i am a moron and hypocrite. Please explain anything I have done that is moronic, as well as anything I have done that generates a contradiction.Sincerely,Kurt

    >DJ, I'd go a step further and say if you put a big sign in your yard with anything on it, you deserve to be made fun of. You join the ranks of the well-adjusted like Mr. Wright. BTW: Whither J. Schmidt when we need him?

    >Humm folks, it just may be “marketing”? If you drove by that sign and it was spelled correctly, you would have read it, made a statement under your breath… and forgot about it. Misspell a word, and wow everyone notices it and it is even posted on websites… and you certainly remember it.

    >DJ… Beats me… but to Big of Government? Government lied about ObamaCare? Not for sure, but I take it he is unhappy with the government as it stands now?

    >Dearest Kurt,I don't see a comment of yours other than the one you have written to me. So obviously I wasn't talking to you.

  17. #17 by No Pitty on August 6, 2010 - 7:50 pm

    >To DJ,The fact that you said probably, tells me you probably would not have made fun of a sign that was used to support the levy. Even if you did, I'm certain you wouldn't have point out that the sign was used to support the levy, but now has a misspelled word. Since some people don't keep up with politics like others, I believe he is selling the idea that people should investigate further and see where our country is headed.

    >Who really knows if this was about Darke County, Washington, DC, or the school levy. Does it really matter?? I believe in spell check or a good old fashion dictionary!

    >I think if all of this energy was put in to passing the levy instead of worrying about some words spelled wrong it would have passed.Oh yeh I know there are miss spelled words in this comment but the differance is I dont care.

    >I love all the arguments but I do believe that this is a prime example of why this town could use a little upgrade in the school system. If you spell a simple word like airplane, then obviously the current system didn't work for you.. assuming this person went to GCS.

    >Sum peepoll hear in dark cownty dont need no dang knew skools foar to gets a beter edjumacasion. Acts arund, wher gud enuff wif aut hiher tacks.I love it. It's like a battle of the wits with an unarmed person. Go ahead and continue to spend your money on cigarettes and alcohol. Seriously, it is our children that will ultimately suffer, not your pocket book. However I agree that it is a truly brilliant marketing idea.

    >DJ has picked on people before for their signs telling people to vote against the levy. I know some active REPUBLICANS who say they don't go to this site anymore because of stuff like this and DJ acting like a child. Not to point out the obvious, but I have read posts about how the media will only portray their side of things and what they want you to know and how DJ doesn't like it, yet he does the same thing on here. Go figure. DJ = nice guy, but should relinquish his website duties.

  24. #25 by .dj on August 6, 2010 - 11:18 pm

    >6:53 … you are wrong. In January, I posted a photo of an anti-levy sign, made no negative comments about the sign, and took some crap from my friends who supported the levy.And I know some active Republicans who need to be thrown out. We're probably talking about the same people.

    >Yah 6:53 PM you have not a clue what your talking about I am on this site Daily and I don't think one side beats the other IF YOU WANT A STORY OR SOMETHING BROUGHT UP FEEL FREE TO SEND IT IN. 99.9% sure it will be posted unless there is foul language in it. this site 50/50 and has been since I first started visiting this year

    >Why should dj relinquish his website duties? It's exactly that – his website!

    >Hate to say it, but persons ripping on this site are 100% accurate. Not even a question. And TLK, if you only started visiting this year, sounds like you have a lot of catching up to do or you need to pay attention, because obviously you are a lost little puppy.

    >Hello 5:42pm……..I love how many people in this town assume if you did not vote yes for the levy, you are spending your money on beer and cigs. Talk about stereotyping….no wonder this town has a bad rap. For your information, I do not smoke or drink AND I voted no for the school levy. I also work 40 hours a week and take no government assistance. So, dont judge all people just because they dont agree with you!

  29. #30 by Anonymous on August 7, 2010 - 7:56 pm

    >It's probably the yes voters that are getting public assitance……so they would be footing the bill anyway.

  30. #31 by Anonymous on August 8, 2010 - 1:11 pm

    >2:23pm: People aren't saying that all no voters spend their money on beer and cigs. They are saying that there is no excuse for not coming up with $2 a week for a new school (assuming you own a $100K home-which most don't). There isn't a person in this school district who can't afford that. They CAN pay for it. They SHOULD pay for it. They choose not to pay for it. Regardless of what "they" are saying, I am saying every single one of you no voters is selfish, ignorant or both.

    >Anonymous August 8, 2010 9:11 AM, Yes you supporters are saying that all people who voted no on the levy spend their money on alcohol and cigs. I have read many comments stating that. I also do not smoke or drink alcohol. I am educated with an college degree and have a great job. I voted no on the school levy. Its time to quit crying and move on. The levy will pass in the future.

  32. #33 by Anonymous on August 8, 2010 - 2:50 pm

    >Charlie: Nobody's crying. Just calling it like it is. Shame on you. The levy will pass in the future? What? When there are fewer people like Charlie Fuller in the world? Let somebody else deal with, right? I honestly wonder whether it crosses your mind that some day you'll meet your Maker and all the people who sacrificed to give you the opportunities that helped you become who you are. How do you look them in the eye?
