    Tie a red ribbon on your rig or tree or everywhere just in a symbolic effort to let them know they have drawn blood by the illegal way they brought about sb941. Leave up as a reminder every day to those who see them we have to vote out the crooks. Red arm band or anything that will be visual that it's on now and we won't forget.

    Good think I have kids that have plenty of ribbon material. Tied one to the 4runner when I saw this. I hope others follow through as well.

    Remember what a big deal it was with the yellow ribbons. Red is the blood for the tree of liberty, here is your chance to tell em all every day where you stand... Get the red out.

    It's the symbolism, every time they see that ribbon it's a voter who is mad about the new law. While some may fear it tells others you have guns just tie ribbons all over.

    Come on folks. I do not want to be the only person in the Portland Metro area driving around with one...I will be if nobody else does but it is a simple statement. Shows we are together and not happy.

    Something to bear in mind is that the red ribbon has already been the symbol of the following, for some time - I don't know if people are really going to associate it with SB941:

    Existing Red Ribbon Symbology:

    * HIV/AIDS Awareness
    * Heart Disease Awareness
    * Substance Abuse Awareness
    * Vasculitis Awareness
    * Epidermolysis Bullosa Awareness
    * Software Freedom Campaign Awareness

    Maybe there is something else that could be done that would more readily be tied in with the message, something that won't get lost in everyone else's interpretation of what a 'red ribbon' means.

    All of these having the same color works so long as the message is clear and out there. If enough people do it then the message gets across. It just a matter of numbers and making the public aware of what we are doing and why. Enough of us do it that message will become clear.

    I have to admit I like the patriotic ribbon. We all just need to obviously be on the same page. As of now as far as I can tell you will see Just Jim with one and my 4runner and Camry with one in the metro area. If a different color will make people do this fine. Either way I think people are a bit scared to show their stance to the world. Lots of running mouths here privately. Back it up people.

    I work around hospitals and do see red ribbons (as well as others) fairly regularly. To be honest, I really don't pay much attention any more since it's hard to know what each one is supposed to mean.

    Leave it to Taku to do a bit of looking and find a good color. Nice. @Just Jim are you willing to swap it out for this?

    Not everyone is quiet. People that know me know my opinions, I don't hide them, even at work.

    I read your posts. You are far from a member I am speaking of. I know you are not afraid to state your opinions. Sadly many here with big mouths are.

    I wasn't taking it as directed at me personally, no worries. I was though, once again, stating my opinions ;)
