Locals Unhappy with the President May Actually do Something

Support your source for local news!
The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Inbetween bar-b-ques, visits to the beach, gravity bongloads, and long drives along the coast with girls half their age, some Los Angelenos are going to express their frustration with the current administration. A few will do it in public places where all can see.

Now here at LAist would never advise anyone to break the law and ducttape banners or large cardboard boxes on the chain fences over the 10 or 101 or 405 like the Freeway Blogger might do.

But there are some legal ways that you can get the message out that you're unsatisfied with this war, and domestic spying, and CIA agents being outted, and the fact that we're all supposed to feel joyous about sub $3/gallon gas prices.

If you want to place a sign on your moving van and legally park it over the 10, that might be an idea. If you want to collect funds around your neighborhood and pay for a plane to carry your message over sunbathers along the Pacific, that might be an option. Or if you want to rollerblade along the boardwalk in your bikini top passing out flyers that simply say IMPEACH, we would approve.

Whatever you do this weekend, we hope that some of it would be civic-minded, or something to help the poor or homeless. But if the best that you can do is spread the word that you're disappointed in the darkness that has taken over the People's House, then we agree with the Freeway Blogger and hope that you do something to express yourself.

Then have your tofudog.
