Giving Us the Finger

Original post made by tango on May 17, 2011

While driving from Livermore to Pleasanton on 580, I noticed that Dublin has again given us the Finger. I am referring to the new Fallon Gateway sign. How many more of these obnoxious signs are we going to have to put up with. There are a few smaller oneson the Pleasanton side , but none as bad as the new one, How do we stop this corruption of the view of the hills?

I better not say this... Do not listen to me... Do not pay a kid $20 to draw the finger on the sign... Do not... As then they will have to remove it... until they get replacement...

You can't stop the builders from building. It may take years or decades but every scrap of land will have a shopping center upon it.
This is the post mom and pop local store downtown shopping that was America. Now, investors from all over the world are allowed to have their lobbyists pay our pols to change zoneing restrictions and denisity prohibits so huge ugly signs screaming their tenants across the freeway can be erected and Americans can rush to the grand opening with their screaming overweight kids.
