Billboard getting noticed across US. Images can be downloaded

Click here to see other designs.  Pictures of the banners on trucks and billboards are to your right.  More to come soon.  If you are interested in purchasing a banner, pertinent information can be found on “billboard information” which is a tab on the top menu bar.  If you pause the mouse on this tab, two others are below it.


Is it a billboard or a semi trailer?   It’s both!   Thanks to Andrew Geurink and family, who not only made it possible but provided the trailer and arranged a place to park it (without going against sign ordinances.)  Then he stretched the vinyl “banner” on, jumped in a tractor-truck and parked the trailer in a visible spot.

It is parked on US 31, just north of 8th St in Holland, MI.   For those who don’t know, we are located in Holland, Michigan (on the west side of state) and close to a big blob of blue called “Lake Michigan”.  Across that blue blob is a city with the Sears Tower, where a certain community activist learned the “Chicago” way.

For those of you who asked “how can I get one, smaller one, bumper stickers, etc, click the “Bill board information” tab on the black menu bar at top (under Gadson flag) .  Nested under that tab are prices and sizes. Please check back every few days for updates.

In the meantime, feel free to post this picture anywhere you want.  Hey, maybe project it on a wall on the white house.

God Bless America

Jim Chiodo, President

Ottawa County Patriots

    Thank you Ottawa County Patriots and Andrew Geurink and his family!!! A friend of mine who is also a semi-truck driver emailed this to me, that’s where I got your URL!!! I live now in Arizona, so you bet, it’s being seen nation-wide as I intend to forward this email all over the place and on Facebook too if I can figure out how to post it on there!!!

    Linda Brazier: Across the top of the red and blue it says, “Romney’s Free Market vs Obama’s Socialism”

    The red part then says, “Romney’s Bain Capital invested PRIVATE money in” then lists the various companies that Bain Capital helped to make successful businesses.

    The Blue part says, “Obama invested TAXPAYER money in” then lists the companies he put stimulus money into that have subsequently gone bankrupt. The blue part at the bottom says, “All of these companies were Obama campaign contributers”

    The white part says “The Choice is CLEAR… Do you want a BUSINESSMAN who has generated BILLIONS or a President who has WASTED TRILLIONS”

    Then it gives the Ottawa County Patriots website

    I posted this picture on FB this morning and of course had people asking what my sources were. So do we know for sure that the information on both candidates is accurate. I sincerely hope so!

      All of the Bankrupt companies can be found on Google as of this morning. The sources are from all media levels: Yahoo,, The Wall Street Journal, cowboybyte,com, Reuters, The Reason, ABC The Blotter, Breitbart and many more. This is astounding the amount of tax payer money that has gone into these failed companies and many of the investors were Obama campaign contributors. The government CANNOT and will not ever been able to RUN companies that are intelligently run and that use private money, not the tax payer hard earned money. Get the government out of the free market that is America. Vote for the one who has shown how it is to run free interprise companies that set the tone for American greatness. You must vote for Romney.

      StarHawk: go ahead and post it. It’s not really mine anaywy I found it in that news snippet that I linked to Matt is right, in that search you linked returned mostly verses with words which contain ass such as pass, grass, compasseth, passover and etc.. When the word ass appears by itself it is usually understood as:But yeah, I totally agree with your point.Matt: that quote is awesome. It works with either meaning of the word ass! a0|a0

    This is the kind of stuff that needs to be pushed more and more. I am not seeing enough lately from the Romney Campaign. Please help in any way to start getting the message out that Obama just plain overall sucks, but tell the people more of what he is doing etc. We have got to get Obama out of the White House. I can not believe the Obama supporters even have a clue of how he is ruining this country and giving the deadbeats a free ride. Howdy from TexaS !!!

    • The type of physician I would like to work for is a Pediatrician. Pediatrician’s spletaciy is to work with children. I have been working with children for a long time mainly because I work at a daycare facility. I’ve got to a point where I feel like I can handle anything that will come my way with them. It would also leave me feeling good at the end of the day to know that I have helped in some way to make a child feel better.The type of physician I would not care to work for is a Epidemiologist. Epidemiologist’s specialize in epidemics caused by infections agents and also work with sexually transmitted diseases. I feel if I were to work in this type of spletaciy I would be putting my self at risk of exposure to these infectious agents. Also I would be focusing a lot of my time on trying to not get infected instead of having a steady mind on what I was actually supposed to be doing.

    • You are absolutely corerct in identifying the 2 choices as to how to approach having your own children in the dojo. I taught my 3 children in my own dojo. I believe I also fall into the 2nd category. However, I also made certain that when we got home I played Mom and asked them if they had fun? What was there favorite things to do etc?: I knew I had to also take this roll to keep lines of communication open. Fortunately we had other black belts in the dojo and we made them responsible for some of their teaching. I f you can find another mentor for your child I suggest you grab the person and embrace them with all you’ve got. Each of my children challenged their instructor/parent in different ways in the dojo. I utilized other instructors/friends to be directly involved with my children. At one point I even sent my teen age daughter to another school and instructor for a week to train, live with him and help in his dojo. No special treatments were ever allowed for my children. During one test my daughter received a nose bleed during sparring. She wanted to quit the test. The tester told her she could stop sparring. I told her she could get herself cleaned up, but if she didn’t continue the test and the rest of the sparring she would fail the test for quitting. With glaring eyes and hands on hips she went back in and finished her test. It was a hard decision for a mom to see her daughter crying and bleeding, but I knew I couldn’t make different rules for my own child. The martial arts dojo is a great place to raise kids. The atmosphere in the dojo helps the parent with issues of discipline, dedication, focus and respect. Yes, it is hard when your own child is in the class. Of course I wanted them to be the best in the class. At times, they were and at times they were kicked out for being rude and disrespectful. They had hard lessons and I did as a mom and Sensei. Would I have preferred them to be at another school? Not at all! In the long run, they are all now involved in the martial arts and value fitness as a part of their life.

    Your billboard with Romney’s Free Mkt vs Obama’s Socialism IS THE BEST argument I have seen yet for getting “that communist, Obama” out of our Whitehouse!! I have sent it on to everyone in my email address book. Thank you very much for the wonderful work you are doing. PS…I live in Cleveland, (just north of Houston) Texas.

      • I got home from work yesterday afetonron and mowed the lawn and blew leaves before the rain came today. After I mowed my lawn, I went next door to my neighbors house and mowed his lawn and blew the leaves off his property. I slipped a pay it forward card under his door mat when I was finished. He came over and thanked me for what I’d done, and also asked me about pay it forward. I often do things for other people, but yesterday it felt a little different because it gave me the opportunity to tell him about paying it forward; also in hopes that it would have a chain reaction and many lives would be effected by such a positive and simple notion of paying it forward .

      Wow. I know the billboards are effective when the libs get upset. How can i tell when they are upset? They take the time to visit a site which they know doesn’t reflect their opinions and post some comments that don’t say anything. For instance, SK is doesn’t like the companies that are listed? Perhaps he/she is talking about the bankrupt companies who received billions in tax payer money and went bankrupt while giving some of it back to Obama.

      Please SK, provide us with a list of all the green companies that have been successful. By successful, I mean, they are hiring people and providing a service or product that does not need to be subsidized. I’d send an email, but I have a sneaky suspicion SK used a fake email. Will I delete the comment? No. It’s nice to see people like SK show off their skills at name calling.
