I'll make this very clear for you. Much of life comes down to politics, and people always lie about their reasoning.

Here, there are many liberals who agree with the message expressed by the chalk. So they will support the chalk, and couch their reasoning in a bunch of bullshit.

If the chalk was demonizing Hillary, they'd completely change their tune. Maybe not every single person, but most of them.

$100 says that most people here defending the chalk or arguing with you did not vote for Trump.

As for myself, I don't agree with the chalk and it is annoying, but ultimately it's just a nuisance. Liberals are crybabies and constantly throw temper tantrums as a result of Hillary's historic loss (and the fact that they were 100% wrong about everything they said for 18 months straight), and this is just more crying.

The chalk is easy enough to ignore. I'd prefer that the perpetrators get arrested for vandalism, but the cops probably don't care.



It's sad that they've brainwashed you on the "Us vs Them" mentality to the point that you're still crying about liberals while the government screws all of us no matter what our party affiliation is. They've got you hollering about Hilary and Obama while Trump and friends get investigated for treason. :)


More like I called out sanctimonious liars like yourself who would tell the OP to get a life and worry about other things solely because you agree with the chalk. But if different messages were expressed, you'd be the first to be outraged over "racism", sexism, etc., you know, anything against the liberal agenda.

And pretending that you are on the side of the little guy and against government oppression is just rich :) You were one of the biggest Hillary boosters, and would be telling us how great she was if she got elected.

My guess is it'd be about the same.


lemme guess.... you wrote that with your pink cat-ear protest hat on? bravo.

it's not effective at all. those that already agree with the sentiment don't need to be reminded, and those that disagree are being annoyed, angered and alienated. so much for the inclusion and unity these peeps purportedly stand for. if these people truly feel some kind of way about their issues, there are way more appropriate & significant ways to truly 'protest.' endlessly writing the same blah blah stuff on the ground is redundant and pointless. they're preaching to the choir, and essentially saying "screw the rest of 'em!"

i wonder if those defending people baring their chalky souls out on the streets would defend the flip side of their right to free speech. what if people spoke their views against things such as gender neutral bathrooms, or wrote "PIZZAGATE!" in pink hearts all across the city? free speech though, right?

For someone who is so bothered by chalk on the ground... stop looking down. Look up at the sky, the trees or just ahead. That should work for you.

And if that doesn't work for you: get up off your chair and do your own chalking.

It's a free world out there

I don't know whether chalking (yes, that's a thing) is legal in JC. It's illegal in some areas, in part because it's classified as vandalism (even if there is no permanent damage), and because it's not seen as a critical impediment to free speech (there are plenty of other outlets that don't involve marking up state or private property). There may be issues if such laws are enforced selectively, but generally speaking those laws have held up in court.

That said: There is no need to be such a Sensitive Snowflake. People don't like the President; he's not getting more popular. You might as well get used to it.

that's what i figure. this way anyone who's here is doing so by choice, rather than being forced to be subjected to someone scribbling the same handful of statements every single day. conversation is natural. issuing non-conversational, repetitive statements seems more like a sign of mental distress to me.


Sigh, I guess the irony is lost on you.

You're both expressing feels unilaterally. When you create a new thread, you're not having a conversation with anyone, you're just venting, just like the chalk guy.

You're not forced to read his messages, either.


trust me, the irony was NOT lost. i denied it on purpose when i replied. lol

i don't feel this is venting, so much as putting the feelers out there to see if there are other rational people who feel the same way I do.

now, should i keep sending this same post every single day?
cuz THAT's what these people are doing. and THAT is not THIS.



You don't feel this is venting? How do you figure?

What is the point about putting "feelers" out regarding a chalker? You're not going to stop it. Might as well either get a thicker skin or just ignore it.

And I think it's interesting that you think people who agree with you about the chalker are necessarily rational. In my opinion, it's not rational to complain about something you can't control to people who can't fix it.

should we all start writing our feelings all over the city sidewalks in chalk as well, particularly those who don't necessarily feel the same way as this person does? is that cool, or only if it's what the majority think they think, according to what the tv has told them should be their opinion? just curious. not really feeling having someone try to tell me how think constantly every time i look at the ground. most of us have more than enough to worry about during our day to day grind, living here and now. this person needs a job and / or some time-consuming hobbies.



you should post a Yelp review about it


hmmm... i'm afraid what you're suggesting is impossible. see, yelp is actually used for business reviews, so unless these chalk people register themselves as such, there's nothing to yelp about. thanks for the suggestion though...


Yup, nothing gets past you, eh?


nothing from nothing leaves nothing.

Good question Comrade! Hillary is paying them out of Clinton Foundation cash stockpile. Of course liberal progressive democrats get paid for all activism.

And if you saw 3 people doing it, why didn't you ask them? You could have said looking for work.


haha, i wouldn't be surprised if they WERE chalk-based paid provocateurs!
