PUYALLUP: Sign sends message of hate

I saw a large billboard-type sign on the corner of Shaw Road and 38th Ave Southeast In Puyallup today. It said: ”Hope Obama and Patty Murray get EBOLA be 4 us – 606-3960.”

I was totally stunned. No matter what your politics, this was disrespectful, mean and ignorant. To those responsible, I say: If you truly want to change things, you will need to get out and work hard, give us some intelligent plans for the future of our country, teach our children to tolerate others and win us over because you have a better plan. You appear incapable of any of these things.

There is a lot of traffic on this road and many children. What a way to teach them bigotry and hate!
